The Bucs were off yesterday, but PNC was still a bustling place. The Brashear Bulls and the Allderdice Dragons squared off for the City League Championship for the third straight season.
The third time wasn't the charm for the Bulls; Allderdice took it to them once again and carried home another trophy with a 4-0 win. The Dragons scored all four runs in the opening frame on two hits, two walks, two errors, plus a couple of mental miscues, and that would be all the runs to touch the plate Thursday.
Junior Blaise Galewski and senior Mike Pfleger teamed up to keep Brashear off the board. Galewski, who was also last year's championship-winning hurler, went five innings, giving up two hits, six walks, and whiffing six. Pfleger worked the last two frames without surrendering a hit and striking out a pair.
For Allderdice, it was their fourth consecutive City League crown. The last team to win four consecutive City League baseball titles was Peabody, who won six straight from 1969-1974.
Congrats to both schools and their teams on a season well played.
