Player of the Night:
Jason Place who besides going 2 for 2 at the plate made 2 outstanding defensive plays. He threw out a runner trying to tag up on a fly ball and advance to third and he also made an outstanding over the shoulder catch to takeaway a potential extra base hit. He ended up crashing into the outfield wall after the play. Honorable mention to Mickey Hall.
