Ireland 1 Greece 5

Ireland lose close game - Irish pitching strikes out 16 Greeks

Ireland lost to the Greek national team today and are thus out of the European Pool B Championships. The Irish pitching staff kept them in a close game against the unbeaten Greeks by striking out a phenomenal 16 Greek batters.

Nat Anglin absolutely obliterated the Greeks - striking out five of the six batters the big kid from Boston faced.

Greece 8th
VANGELATOS struck out looking (3-2 BBKBFK).
MARKOU A struck out swinging (2-2 KBBSS).
LEMPESIS struck out looking (0-2 SSFK).
0 runs, 0 hits, 0 errors, 0 LOB.

With the tournament now over for the Irish, congratulations to them on playing three very tight games, three games they could definitely have won with a little bit of luck. Particular tip of the cap to Jason Hoye, who bashed three home runs and batted an amazing .545 for the tournament.
