CVS holds off Allen Samuels surge, 12-11

CVS comes within a single win of city championship
It looked like CVS Pharmacy might run away with the opening game of the freshman league championship series on Monday, but Allen Samuels Autoplex had other ideas.
Down 9-2, Allen Samuels made it all the way to 12-11 in the sixth inning before CVS was able to close it out. CVS collected most of the game’s hits (9-3), but also committed most of the errors (9-3) in the contest as not a single one of Allen Samuels’ runs was earned.
“The most important thing is we came away with the win,” said CVS coach Randy Farrell.
“These kids have battled all year long and I really think they came together about the ninth game of the season. We had really been playing some solid defense, but you couldn’t tell it [Monday].
“We weren’t able to make some easy plays and it nearly cost us. The guys had some butterflies in a championship series, but it’s just a baseball game and they settled down.”
“We took advantage of the mistakes [CVS] made [Monday], but we didn’t hit the ball,” said Allen Samuels coach Doug Turner.
“All we can do is keep our heads up and come back on Wednesday trying to take that game and even this up.”
