The Green Mountain Boys win second straight

Rory Ulmer

Once again the Green Mountain Boys (GMB) played an amazing defensive game and received strong pitching performances from Connor Philbrick, Ethan Oglesby, and Becket Hill to defeat South Burlington 9-3 on Saturday. Bo Pike executed a perfect defensive double play at short-stop in the 4th inning with a lunging catch to his right off a sharply hit line drive then threw a bullet to first base to double up a South Burlington (SB) base runner caught off the bag. That was indeed the play of the game until Rory Ulmer turned in a defensive gem in the next inning. With men on first and second base and no outs, a SB batter hit a line drive to Ulmer at second base. Ulmer made the catch, ran down, and tagged the runner leading off first, and fired to second base completing a rare triple play!

Each week the GMB awards “The Golden Helmet” to the player with the outstanding play for the game. Ulmer received the award for executing a rare triple play.

The next GMB game is scheduled for 12 pm on Dec. 1 at The Field House in Shelburne.
