Adam Hall and his Junior National Teammates picked up their first win of the Spring Training Camp with a 2-1 win over a group of prospects from the Boston Red Sox organization.
With one out and runner on first in the bottom of the second, a batted ball to wall in left was scooped up by left fielder Rhys Cratty, relayed to shortstop Hall who threw a strike to catcher Victor Cerny who applied the tag to record the second out of the inning.
Starter William Sierra was impressive throughout his three-innings of work. The right-hander allowed a single in the first, walked a batter in the second before working a perfect frame in the third. His three scoreless included two strikeouts.
Reliever Wesley Moore allowed a run in the fourth but bounced back with three scoreless innings from the fifth through seventh. He escaped trouble in the sixth as the Red Sox loaded the bases with just one out before he registered a strikeout and got a fly out to left to end the threat.
Of the Junior National Teamís nine hits, four went for extra bases including a pair of doubles off the bat of Damiano Palmegiani who ended his day going 2-for-3.
Calgary native Jordan Procyshen, the lone Canadian in the Red Sox organization, played in the Junior National Team program in 2011. He started behind the plate for the Red Sox today and is slated to begin the season at Double A Portland.
