Knights Advance to 2010 Championship (Round 2 Recap)

The Albany Blacksox and Colonie Knights matched up in the second round of the playoffs.  


Game 1:   The Knights sent Hayden to the mound to battle the Blacksox Preston in a pitching matchup and a half.   In the first it started to look like a pitchers duel this was not going to be.   The Blacksox started the game with one run in the first inning followed by a Knights 2 run first inning.   Both pitchers buckled down and didn’t concede another run.  Final 2-1 all runs scored in the first inning.


Game 2:   In a must win for the Black Sox they sent Auclaire to the mound to battle the Knights Anderson.   Auclaire started the game with a 0 but the Blacksox would strike on offense in the bottom of the first for two runs all with two outs in the inning.   Anderson would buckle down and not concede another run.  The Knights would scratch together runs in the 3rd, 5th, and 7th to win the game 7-2.


The Knights are going to their 6th championship in 7 years of their existence.  They are looking to win their 4th championship using their trademark pitching and defense motto.
