Senators' Hart records another valiant effort against a medley of anatine hurlers

The new-look Arlington Mallards picked up a gritty 3-1 win on the road over the formidable Senators on Thursday, employing a brand new approach on the mound to help guide them to victory. The Mallards, who were last in the league in 2018 in pitchers used per game (1.45 PPG) utilized a deep bullpen composed of familiar faces and savvy veterans, as well as a few newcomers who were welcomed with open arms, to keep the opposition guessing at the plate.

Barons win 2018 summer championship over Mallards; their 5th consecutive title

After the first two games of this Championship Series, it was not only that the Arlington Mallards had the defending DC Wood Champion Falls Church Barons down 2-0; it was also the decisive way they had done it. 

For the decisive game 5, with the series tied at 2-2, the Barons sent their ace, McClure to the mound.  He was rudely greeted by the determined Mallards, and the Barons were down 2-0 before they could send a player to the plate in the first inning.  When they did, however, it was clear that they were equally determined.  Barnes sent the first pitch of the bottom half of the inning over the right field fence!   Then, before the first inning was complete, the Barons’ McEnhimer smacked a two-run home run to dead center to give the Barons the final lead of this series.  The Barons added 4 runs in the third inning, highlighted by a Glaser bloop single that drove in 2.  The Mallards did not feel this ball game was over yet, however, and in the top of the fifth, the Mallards they got two runs to cut the lead to 7-4.   But in the bottom of the sixth Shoenfeld's infield single drove in a runner from third.  In the seventh, the Barons’ Ortiz sent a ball over the fence and way past the tree line in left centerfield, giving the Barons a their final 9-4 lead.  The Barons’ McClure, who pitched well after surviving the first inning trouble, was dead tired as he took the mound in the ninth to finish his job, and the still game Mallards got runners to first and second with one out.  But when McClure got a big strikeout and an easy ground ball back to himself he was able to record the final out and complete the Barons’ fantastic comeback series win. This victory gives the Barons their 5th consecutive D.C. Wood Title and cements their legacy as one of the best local adult baseball teams of the decade!  This is also the Barons 7th overall title.  Caylor, Nelson, and Martinez have been a part of all 7!  Congratulations to the Barons on their latest win and their tradition of excellence!
