MCC Baseball Section wins Division Two Premiership
Saturday March 19, 2011
The MCC has won its third Division Two pennant after comprehensively defeating Preston in a grand final series clean sweep on Saturday.
After winning the first game of the final 3-1 in a tight contest earlier in the week, MCC was unstoppable in game two at Melbourne Ballpark, winning 14-0 to secure a return to the top division after three seasons of relegation.
It has previous won Division Two pennants in 1987/88 and 2000/01.
With Andrew Mann throwing six innings in a superb outing, the Demons held Preston to six hits while the Kent brothers, Campbell Wiggins and Rich Unwin led a productive offence that cashed in on some defensive errors to hold a 14-zip lead after four and wrap the contest up in seven innings.
“Our first goal was to finish on top and assure ourselves of a spot in Division One,” said triumphant Demons coach Matthew Kent.
“Our second season goal was to win the flag. There has been a lot of resolve after the disappointment last year and the focus has not wavered.”
Congratulations to the MCC Baseball Section on their win and earning reinstatement to Division One.
