PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth Post 27 Diamond Spyders picked up another win last night to run its season-opening win streak to three games with a 5-3 decision over Crown Point Post 20.
The Diamond Spyders used a big first inning to get the job done, plating all five of their runs in the first and holding on for the win at home at Bill Nixon Field.
â€śWe looked good offensively in the first inning,â€ť said Plymouth coach Tony Plothow.Â â€śIt looked like we lost focus at the plate in the later part of the game, and we canâ€™t have that against some of the other teams that we will face this year.â€ťÂ
