Brendan Doherty’s RBI single to shallow left with two outs capped off a two run 7th inning rally to give the Lions an Opening Day win over their crosstown rival.  Middletown North had a 2-0 lead through five innings on RBI singles from Mike Mercier and Marco Cerbo.  The Eagles rallied for three runs in the 6th inning starting with a Joe Sprake RBI single to shallow right center followed by a sacrifice fly and an error.  A Cerbo ground ball that was thrown away tied the game at three setting the stage for Doherty’s heroics.  Watch all the highlights in our first edition of the US Army Baseball Game of the Week:
