Red’s Astros Upset Nordkap 23-22 in Last Game Wednesday Night

In the final game of Wednesday night’s Men’s Major World Series action Red’s Astros upset #4 seed Nordkap 23-22. Nordkap’s bats were more than alive throughout the game, especially left fielder Donovan Pokraka who went 4-4 with 5 RBIs in his first game of the 2012 Men’s Major World Series. But Red’s Astros started battling back in the sixth inning when they scored 7 runs to cut Nordkap’s lead to 13-9. Nordkap answered with 5 more runs, bringing the game into the last inning and challenging Red’s Astros to score at least 9 runs to stay alive. Red’s scored 5 runs before making an out in the top of the seventh inning. With only one out on the board, Chad Mullins hit a grand slam followed by homerun from Wally Maybrier to give Red’s a total of 14 runs in the top of the seventh, forcing Nordkap to hit in the bottom half of the inning. After a huge at bat by Red’s Astros, Nordkap couldn’t come up with the 6 runs they needed to take the win. Red’s Astros came in clutch defensively with a double play to end the game and give them the win over Nordkap 23-22.
