Here are this week’s American Family
Insurance All-Northeast Ohio Top 5 Performances of the Week.
Number 5: This week’s
fifth-best performance comes from the baseball diamond, as Mentor traveled to
Aurora to take on the Greenmen. Aurora’s right fielder tracks down a ball on
the foul line and stretches out to make a tremendous catch. However, Mentor
would go on to win, 6-1.
Number 4: This week’s
fourth-best performance also comes from the baseball diamond, as the Green Bulldogs
traveled to Nordonia to play the host Knights. This photo shows an attempted
steal at third base, as the runner is thrown out before a slide is even
attempted. The Knights would defend their turf by bringing home a 5-4 win.
Number 3: This week’s
third-best performance comes from the softball field in a game between Solon and
Twinsburg. In the photo, a Twinsburg runner attempts to slide around the Solon
catcher as the defender attempts to reach for the tag. Solon would go on to win
Number 2: This week’s
second-best performance comes also from the softball field, as Stow-Munroe
Falls traveled to Nordonia to play the host Knights in a second-round
tournament contest. This photo captures a key play at home plate in the top of
the six inning, as the Stow base runner was thrown out trying to score. Despite
the key defensive play by the Knights, Stow held on for the 4-3 win to advance.
Number 1: This week’s top
performance comes from the same game as No. 4. Nordonia’s second baseman shows
off his vertical leap to rob a Green batter of a base hit and a potential game-tying
RBI. What a catch!
