Johnson City 5, Norwich 3
JOHNSON CITY - Johnson City outhit and outplayed the Purple Tornado Friday, although the local club stayed in the game playing error-free baseball.
Vince Trayling had three hits and two RBI for JC, and Adam Kettle finished with two hits and two ribbies. Winning pitcher Colin Arvanitakis allowed just three hits and no earned runs to pick up the win. NHS scored all three of its runs in the last inning without a basehit. Three Wildcats errors and a balk led to the trio of tallies. "We put the ball in play and only struck out three times,” said Norwich coach Rich Turnbull. “We just hit it at them, and Trayling made four or five great catches in centerfield. Any one of those balls drop in the outfield, it's a different game."
