‘Peterson and Prouty Lead Sugar Kings to Victory’
Submitted by Jeff Austin, Sugar Kings manager
Mark Peterson threw seven strong innings and hit a Grand Slam to power the Sugar Kings offense to a 16-7 victory over the Mariners. Peterson’s slam came in an 8-run, fifth inning during a tight ballgame. Sean Prouty followed Mark’s slam with a 2-run shot deep to center field. Prouty ended the game 5 for 5.
Jeff Cirillo came on in the eighth to finish it out for the “Kings”. Great defense was the signature of this win for the home team while allowing only seven hits from the Sugar Kings pitching staff. In total, the Kings knocked the Mariners pitchers for 21 hits.
