A .500 record in the regular season means nothing when the tournament begins.
Ariel is proving that.
Once the floodgates opened, Thursday’s MVBA Major League consolation semifinal became a one-sided snoozer.
Fourth-seeded Foster’s HealthMart won games using clutch hitting, good pitching and opportunistic play all season long, and that carried over into Thursday’s first MVBA Minor League tournament game, a 14-5 victory over fifth-seeded Wigal Orthodontics.
Foster’s led 3-1 after three innings, but a Wigal run in the top of the fourth inning cut the lead to 3-2. That’s when Foster’s went to work, scoring eight times in the bottom of the frame to take control of the game, 11-2.
