SCORES-THURSDAY AUGUST 27TH
GOT PAIN 21 O-SIDE PAINTING 20
This game was supposed to go 7 innings because of the heat, but Got Pain was able to push 2 runs across the plate in the bottom of the 7th to force at least another inning. OP managed to get 2 runs in the top of the 8th, but then Gordon Cress came through with a walk off double to score GP's winning 3rd run from 2nd for the win.
LIFELINE 15 NUCCI'S 6
It was a 7 inning game on a hot August morning. Nucci's scored 5 runs in the top of the first inning without getting an out (Happy Birthday, Lil!). It was an ominous start for Lifeline. But Nucci's scored only 1 run in the second and Les Beccue and company shut Nucci's out in the 5 remaining innings. Michael Juditz hit a grand slam in the 2nd inning, putting Lifeline ahead. Michael also went 4 for 4. Mari Gullucci also went 4 for 4. Wally Wallace hit a home run in the 6th to give Lifeline a comfortable lead. Tony Don't-Mess-With-Tony Ruffolo snagged a hotly hit grounder from Tony Sando and tossed it to first for the last out.
SCORES-THURSDAY AUGUST 27TH
THE DRAFT 8 CARLSBAD INN 7
In another squeaker for The Draft, not much went right, but Jim Giovinazo was 4 for 4 and 3 rbi's, Steve D'Agostino was 2 for 2 with 2 sac rbi's, Ed Elliot had a HR, and Gary Smith was 3 for 3. Carlsbad Inn had a big 4th inning scoring 6 runs and closing the game to 7-6. Thanks to Rick Shaw for subbing for CBI and to CBI for sharing 2 each inning with The Draft.
PIZZA PORT 14 THAT PIZZA PLACE 12
On a hot humid at Alga Norte a fun game challenged all players. Thanks to Chuck Dodd and Ron Langley for their fair play. It looked like Pizza Port would have an easy time after the first few innings. WRONG! That Pizza Place came roaring back in the late innings to come within two runs short of forcing extra innings. The highlight of the game was a fantastic Home Run that only took one bounce to reach the Alga Norte left field fence by the Mighty Quinn, the big guy, JOHN QUINN. Thanks to Dennis Poulson and Chuck Sutherland for their excellent play and coming to the aid of Pizza Port.
The 2015 Summer/Fall season began on Tuesday June 23rd, featuring 6 teams playing 3 games at Lake Park in Oceanside, including Got Pain?, O-Side Painting, Nucci's, Pizza Port, Carlsbad Inn, and Lifeline, who were the Winter/Spring winners of the Jack Brown Tournament.
