Granite City Oilers 1 - Glasgow Comets 16

The weather stayed the same for Game 2 which usually sees the rosters of both teams stretched to their limits. Comets probably would be expected to fare better in this regard with their marathon affair in their previous game versus the Oilers who had not tested the depth of their squad fully losing by way of mercy rule the previous week having played only 7 innings.

A windy but sunny day in Glasgow greeted the travelling Granite City Oilers from Aberdeen to play their first game against a Glasgow side in 3 years since their hiatus from the League. They had been beaten handily the previous week and looking to get on the board against a Comets team coming fresh off a 3 week rest from their Opening Day win.

The Glasgow Galaxy entered today's game on a high after last weeks victory but still determined to improve on the defensive performance they put in for week one and the Giants came to play having scored a lot of runs last week but coming away with a tough loss and looking to fight back with a team including some new players.

The pitching matchup of Luke Powell against Kyle Huffey promised a lot of strikeouts and it did not disappoint. 

Luke facing the Giants for the first time settled in quickly with a 1-2-3 first inning quickly sitting down the top of the lineup.

It was for this reason the powers that be decided Giants vs Comets Opening day 2017 in Edinburgh was the way to go, and what a way to go it turned out. Both teams with a new swagger of anticipation about the season took the field in the Glorious Edinburgh sunshine, and served up another marathon game decided by a huge comeback by the Glasgow Comets in the second half of the game to get their season off to a flyer.
