Beavers Win in Sudden Death Over Unicorns, 0-0
June 4th, 2023
UTICA, Mich. – Jesse Galindo threw 4.0 scoreless innings, striking out six to lead the Birmingham Bloomfield Beavers (2-4) over the Utica Unicorns (4-2), 0-0, in sudden death on Saturday’s second game at Jimmy John’s Field.
It was a pitcher’s duel as Galindo and Unicorns starter Tristan Harvin pitched 4.0 scoreless innings, striking out three and giving up no walks.
The sudden death format is as follows: a coin toss will take place at home plate between the managers of both teams. The home team will call their selection as the umpire tosses the coin. The winner of the coin toss will select whether they will take the field defensively or bat in the inning. The team at bat will remain the same batting order as the previous inning with the hitter making the last out placed at first base. If the team scores a run, they win. If they are held scoreless, the victory goes to the team on defense.
