Springfield, FL---The Rutherford Rams have earned a split in their two game season series with county rival Mosley, beating the Dolphins 7-4 Thursday night at Shamplain.
The Rams getting a 6 run third inning leading the way to that victory. The rally started with a walk, an infield single, a bunt single and then Mosley starter Joey Hair hit Dallas Davis to force in a run. That gave the Rams a 2-1 lead.
The next hitter was Nick Nelson and he hit a shot over the fence in left center, the grand slam making it 6-1.
After the next pitch, Mosley coach Todd Harless walked out to the mound to speak to Hair. The conversation apparently not going well, Hair not only left the game, he left the ball park.
