Quakertown Ocean Slopfest
Greetings sports fanatics! Tonight the Quakertown Blazers played host to the Ocean Ospreys. The Blazers came out flat from the start, making uncharacteristic errors which allowed to Ospreys to score 4 runs in the first 3 innings. The Blazers would tie the game up by the 7th inning. However, the Ospreys would score 3 runs and withstand a Blazers rally in the bottom of the 7th. The Ospreys would add 3 insurance runs in the top of the 9th to cap a 10-6 victory. Both teams combined for 15 errors. One bright spot for the Ospreys was their starting pitcher Joseph Voli, who battled through 6 innings while throwing 121 pitches, allowed 3 earned runs and struck out 5 batters. His biggest highlight came on the field, when a shortage of players forced him to play right field. In the bottom of the 8th inning, Riley Davis of Lehigh hit a long drive to right that could have ended up being a double. Joe initially lost track of the ball, but recovered to make a miraculous diving catch. Joe stated after the game it was a huge victory considering they split a DH with the Trenton Generals the night prior.
