Swinging the lumber in Flint

Yesterday, we had the pleasure of traveling up north to visit the men of Flint on their home field.  This was the first time that Dexter has made the trip to Flint after seeing the club for the first time in Royal Oak the week before.

After winning the bat toss Dexter chose to take the field first.  Lumber City started the game strong, coming out of the gate swinging their bats well and scoring multiple tallies.  Lumber City struck well placed balls, always managing to find the gaps in the defense.  When the Union men got a chance to strike, they had a couple of strong strikes, but were unable to bring anyone across home plate.  The second inning went much the same as the first.  Lumber City continued to get one man after another onto the bases and around, as well as making great plays in the field keeping Dexter from scoring any tallies.  It wasn't until half way through the game after Flint already had a commanding lead that Dexter started to strike well and get men moving around the bases.  The Flint bats had a consistently strong day, scoring multiple tallies in every inning, while Dexter only had a couple of strong innings near the end of the match.  In the end, Dexter put up around 15 runs, but were still out done by many, many tallies.  A big Huzzah to Flint for their strong play on both sides of the ball, they play a great game for a second year club!  We look forward to seeing them again later in the season in Dexter!
