It was the pitching duel many were waiting to see Tuesday night in the Dixie Boys matchup between the Ward’s Yamaha – Honda Cardinals and the Regions Bank Mets – and it stood up to most expectations.
Cardinals’ Ace pitcher Pete VanHorn won the battle as he pitched a seven-inning shutout accounting for 18 of the 21 Mets outs through strikeouts and leading his team to a slim 1-0 win.
Mets’ Ace Blake Phelps was just as deadly on the opposite side striking out 14 batters and holding the Cards scoreless through five until Daniel Hussey got the sole Cardinal hit in the sixth and was able to steal home for the game’s only run.
Phelps also had the the Mets’ only hit stealing VanHorn’s no-hitter away from him in the seventh inning.
