On Thursday, September 3rd, the Dodgers jumped out of the gate against the Red Sox with a huge first inning. Nitin Muniappan led off with a double followed by singles from Kaden Flummerfelt and Krish Muniappan. Brady Ihrig, Brendan Bock, and Rocco Bottari added singles of their own and eventually came around to score. Nick Rotondi and Carson Infantino got base-hits and scored as well to bring the total to nine runs for the inning.
Richie Masterpol pitched well for the Red Sox but got extremely unlucky as all the batted balls found some open space. The Red Sox fought hard though and scored three runs of their own in the top of the third, with Grady and Liam Sullivan drawing walks and scoring, Masterpol also got on base and came around to touch home.
The Dodgers got two more in the third with Nitin Muniappan batting in Carson Infantino, who had walked, and Nitin was then driven home by his brother Krish with a single. The Red Sox got two in the fourth with Max Shoffner and Ryan Kutylo walking and scoring, and then two more in the fifth with Tom Kowalczuk hitting a big two RBI double. The Dodgers rounded out the scoring with Brady and Charlie Ihrig coming home on a triple by Rocco Bottari. Both teams played tough to finish off a well-fought game.
