assignment Short Devils Squad Squeaks Out Victory Over Falcons

Despite a double, a homer and four ducks from Dougothy, the Falcons couldn’t beat a 9-man Devils team falling 13-12 on Sunday evening.

Every game is an important game at this point the in the season for the Falcons (20-9), but the team came out flat in this one. They took a 3-1 lead into the bottom of the third inning, but allowed the Devils a four-spot to take the lead. The Falcons scored five in the fifth to retake the lead but couldn’t hold it. The Falcons scored again in the sixth and seventh, taking a two-run lead. The Devils tied the game and loaded the bases with one out, and a seeing-eye single won it.

Coming up for the Falcons: another must-win, this time at Bradley, then a make-or-break double header on Sunday, home to arch-rivals Xtreme and Storm.
