Ngerchelong Upsets Meyuns, makes history
(Tuesday, June 26, Asahi Baseball Field) – Baseball fans at Asahi Field enjoyed a tightly fought contest between visitor Blue Sharks and Meyuns with Ngerchelong Blue Sharks narrowly edging Meyuns with final score of 5 to 3.
The Blue Sharks score first in the opening inning when speedster Rodman Teltul walked to first, stole second and third and scored on a balk. Blue Sharks added two more in the third on costly errors by Meyuns, increasing their lead to 3 to 0 as Blue Sharks pitcher Vitores kept Meyuns scoreless, striking-out two and allowing no hit through three innings. Meyuns scored 1 in the fourth on singles by Mad Ngiramowai and Vincent Stark, and another run in the sixth inning when RT Tellei reached base on BB and reached home on consecutive defensive errors by Blue Sharks. The rally forced Vitores off the mound and brought out reliever Teich Mitsur who kept Meyuns scoreless in the last two innings while Blue Sharks fashioned two assurance runs in the top of the final inning for a final score of 5 to 3. The win earns Ngerchelong Blue Sharks a historic win, a first ever baseball trophy in many years. According to Blue Sharks Organizer/Advisor Legislator Dwight Ngiraibai, “…. this may well be a beginning of a new era for Ngerchelong baseball”. Todd Ngiramengior of Oldiais congratulated them and offered to help them for next season by inviting Lator Ngiraibai and his team to watch their championship game.
