Just got back from a thriller in Livermore…..
Through 5 1/2 it was Irvington 1, Livermore 0, then the fireworks began.
Tanner Laran singled to open up the sixth and Brett Christopher was called on to bunt him over. Only Christopher missed the bunt and Laran was caught way off the base. The Irvington cather had him dead at first so he took off for second, the Irvington first baseman went to sweep-tag and didn’t realize Laran headed for second. By the time he turned around he couldn’t get him at second.
Christopher then procedes to go yard to left center (barely over the fence) to give Livermore a 2-1 lead.
Top 7: Silvernale singles for Irvington and with 2 outs, Brittley Tringali rips a ball in the R-C gap. Everyone thought he was going to score no problem, but RF Laran picked up the ball, hit J.R. Graham at short and he gunned down Silvernale (easily) at the plate to end the game.
One of the best HS games I’ve ever seen.
