Bros defend Title with Solid Effort @ Mongos

Mongos walk 15 Bros enroute to 20-2 loss.

The defending champion Bros showed there was no offseason rust in a dismantling of the Mongos this morning in a lopsided 20-2 victory. The Mongos, who’s offseason search for pitching continues, struggled mightily on the mound, and couldn’t solve John Petry’s fastball/curve combo.

Rookie Sergio Benigno took the hill for the Mongos, and struggled with his control in the first inning, walking 6 Bros, which lead to them taking a 2-0 Lead. The Mongos would get a run back in the bottom of the first, when Antonio LaValva roped a shot to center that was misplayed and would up on third base. Pete Dunetz followed with an RBI groundout, cutting the lead in half 2-1.

The second inning the Bros capitalized when rookie hurler Dan Burns couldn’t get some calls, and wound up with another 6 walks in the inning. Dexter Garcia’s 2 run double, the first of 2 for Dex on the day, opened the lead to 8-1 after 2. Dexter would go on to a 4-5 day at the plate, driving in 4 runs.

The Mongos could not get any offense going, as John Petry (1-0, 3.60) shut them down for the next 3 innings. Petry went 5 innings, giving up 2 earned runs, striking out 7, walking 2 for his first win of the year.

The Bros wrapped up 13 hits vs. Mongos pitching, Joe Arcaro going 3-3 with 4 rbi. The Mongos would score their only other run, via a Tony Canino RBI Single down the left field line, scoring Eric Dunetz who had lined a double down the right field line. Rob Petry came in for the Bros in the final inning to close it out in 6 innings, as time elapsed.
