Great Britain: Richmond Sweeps Bracknell

Great Britain: Richmond Sweeps Bracknell

GREAT BRITAIN – The Richmond Flames flexed their muscles and built their season record to 19-5 by comfortably disposing of the ailing Bracknell Blazers.

Richmond crushed four home runs across the two games as they rolled to 14-2 and 20-9 triumphs.

William Schmitt clubbed two (including a grand slam) long balls, along with further homers for Robbie Unsell (another grand slam just one inning later) and Guy Lidbetter.

Pitching honours went to Unsell and Matt Spaulding.

The Nationals and Pirates split their doubleheader, albeit in wildly contrasting match-ups.

Jose Sosa pitched Croydon to a 6-2 win in game one, out-dueling the league’s 2010 Best Pitcher, Jason Roberts.

But the Nationals came back big-time in the second encounter, crushing the Pirates 21-0, backing a dominant pitching performance by Jamie Ratcliff in which the 17-year old delivered a six-inning complete game shutout with just three hits allowed.

The London Mets boosted their season record to 16-6 with a sweep (5-3 and 7-2) of the Essex Arrows, tightening their grip on second spot in Pool B in the process.

Essex is left clinging to fourth spot in Pool A with just one weekend of regular season play remaining, but three games left unplayed.

1. Richmond Flames (19-5)
2. Southampton Mustangs (17-7)
3. Bracknell Blazers (9-13)
4. Croydon Pirates (7-14)
5. Essex Arrows (6-15)

1. Lakenheath Diamondbacks (17-5)
2. London Mets (16-6)
3. Southern Nationals (12-10)
4. Mildenhall Bulldogs (4-14)
5. Herts Falcons (2-18)
