The Cardinals jumped out to a 4-0, first inning lead and never looked back as they cruised to a 10-1 win in the Majors Championship Game against the Red Sox at Grove Street.
The Red Birds received dominant pitching performances from Mac Annus, Tim Minicozzi and Sylvian Davidson. The entire lineup contributed to the win as Max Callanan, Kadin Phimister and Billy Benson contributed key hits. Jack Corderi and Jack Sacca provided strong play from behind the dish as they split catching duties. Daniel Barmakian and Reid Carlson chipped in with solid defense for the victorious Cardinals.
Despite the disappointing loss the underdog Red Sox fought hard to the end. Sox highlights were provided by left fielder Kate Piccin, who made a great catch on a ball launched off the bat of Cardinal's slugger Max Callanan, and Mike Travia, whose aggressive base running led to the Sox only run.
