Buddy Mayert had a triple, a double and one RBI as the RFNOW Cardinals beat the GW Vacuum Truck Service Young Guns 6-1 in the opening game of the best-of-five Andrew Agencies Senior AA Baseball League final on Thursday at Andrews Field.
Adam Hartman went 2-for-4 with a double to help the Cardinals’ cause. Starting pitcher Luke Whelpton threw two strikeouts and gave up six hits and four walks in the complete-game victory — and also hit a two-RBI single.
Young Guns starter Jordan Robertson took the loss in the battle of lefties, allowing six runs on six hits and six walks in four innings.
Jason Ray and Brett Kitt both went 2-for-3 for the Young Guns, with Kitt plating their only run.
The date for Game 2 hasn’t yet been determined, because the Young Guns will participate in next weekend’s senior AA provincials in Rivers.
