 Cardinals Set to Defend Boys Major League Title

     See also: Coaches, Parents Asked to Inspect Youth Rosters for Spelling Errors

April 2, 2008 - In last year’s championship game, the Knightstown Elevator Cardinals took advantage of walks and errors, and used a crucial four-run fifth inning to defeat the White Flash Auto Parts Devil Rays 9-8 in the Optimist Club boys major league final.

In a dramatic game that went back and forth the entire game, the Cardinals managed just two hits off of Devil Ray pitchers Kyle Adkins and Jordan Jessup. But the opportunistic Cardinals took advantage of eight walks, two hit batters and five errors to score seven of their nine runs.

The loss overshadowed a brilliant offense game for Devil Ray Jordan Jessup. He wowed the crowd with a hitting display that included two over-the-fence home runs and a double, getting more hits in the game than the entire Cardinal team.

Both Jessup and Adkins are gone from the league this year, and the race for the pennant appears to be wide open.
