Cardinals in provincial final but …

Leading 5-4 after two, the Cardinals had a hard time stopping the North East Red Sox over the next couple of innings in the 2017 Senior AA Tier 3 Provincial Championship final, held at Unity August 13.

The Astros put up three runs in the third and four in the fourth, and although the Cards were able to hold them in the fifth and sixth innings, the Astros were ahead 11-6 going into the seventh and final inning. The Cardinals faced a 12-6 score going into the bottom of the seventh and although they were able to put three runs up on the board, it was too little, too late, making the Astros the 2017 provincial champs.

Although they did not win the home-hosted tournament, the Cardinals did an excellent job of hosting, providing the Unity and area crowd with lots of entertaining baseball over the weekend. A booth and beer tent, with excellent seating for the semifinal and final, were also part of the weekend’s festivities.
