Clutch hitting keys Split’s Karlovac sweep, 7-4


The rubber game of the mini series with arch-rival Karlovac was a tense 4-3 thriller under dark skies until Split’s American left fielder Jeremy Todd slammed a clutch seventh inning double putting the locals ahead for good.  In the sixth inning Todd also made a sterling defensive play in the outfield making a running catch of a liner and then rifling a throw to first to double up a Karlovac runner and put an end to their threat. 

Split enjoyed a three zip lead for five innings, paced by Ernesto’s solo towering homer to right, a Karlovac error and some erratic pitching.  Sarma, Split’s starting pitcher threw very well allowing only a pair opposite field hits but a couple of squib infield hits, some walks and an error quickly erased the lead and then some solid hits the next inning put Karlovac ahead 4-3.

After tying the game, Split went ahead 5-4 and never looked back, adding two more insurance runs to win 7-4 and boost its first place record to 5-1.
