Methodist takes title in two
PRINCETON — United Methodist didn’t get too down after losing big in the first game for the championship of the Princeton Fastpitch Church League Tournament Saturday at West Side Park. They still had their ace in the hole.
Methodist captain Rex Lasson, a 61-year-old grandfather of seven, took to the rubber to pitch the second game. He struck out two and held St. Matthew’s heavy hitting lineup to seven hits with an assortment of offspeed pitches sprinkled in with a few heaters after they belted out 15 in the first game’s 14-1 rout off Lasson’s son, Brett.
“How we were able to put game 1 in delete box was amazing. Typically game 2 is a blowout too by winner of game 1,” Lasson said. “We never got the big inning we thought was coming. I didn’t know I could still go that many innings against a top team. I have surprised myself many times on that field over the years.
