Wally Wallace sets to shoot one to the waiting glove of Marty Topper in right field in today's game at Pine between I-5 Bali Bonds and O'Ireland.
I5 BAIL BONDS 17 O'IRELAND 7
Determined Bail Bonds emerged from their doldrums at least for today with a much needed victory at Pine enjoyed by all on a delightful day for Senior Softball. The 8-inning game was close most of the way, but BB was not to be denied when they proved their worth by breaking open the contest with a 5-run blast in the top of the final inning. Both Gordon Cress & Janet Wood threw commendable games with assists supplied by the BB bats of Greg Newman’s 4/4 (welcome back, Capt.), Jim Biksacky’s 4/5 with 2 HR’s and Dennis Poulson’s 4/5. Both teams were missing several players, still we all competed like the pros that we are.
HARBOR HOUSE 27 NUCCI'S 6
Another excellent pitching performance by Les Beccue and close out by Harry Peacock. We're going to have to start keeping track of Les Beccue's strikeouts. Harbor House played another good defensive game while 2 home-runs by Mark Tanner and Charles O'Brien (with 1 of Charles O'Briens home-runs being a grand-slam, his other was only a 3 run homer) providing all the offense needed. Rick Shaw and Dave Koch went 4 for 5 and Bob Blachford had a home-run for Nucci's. Dave Koch would have had a home-run but a leg injury forced him to settle for a triple. Joe Raffa, Evelyn Schwartz, and Bill Witte all caught some long balls in the outfield for Nucci's. Newcomer, Bob Blachford, had some control problems but once he gets that down, will be a very good pitcher in our league. He throws a nice curve ball. Well played game by both teams with Nucci's missing several key players.
THE DRAFT 18 THAT PIZZA PLACE 12
Both teams played good defense today. It just turned on who could score the most. Gary Soper for TPP pitched a great game and helped himself to a HR too. Craig Lamb would have had a HR but the ol' legs could only get him to 3rd. The Draft will sorely miss Kevin Bender who was excellent in left field today, including a throw home that would have been an out if it were not for the no tagging rule. He was also 4 for 4 as was Marty Fenlon who remains on fire with another HR and 6 RBI's. Bill Lautenbach was 3 for 3 and Les Pasco went 3 for 4 with 3 RBI's. Paul Shook pitched great for The Draft and showed great reaction time knocking down a bunch of comebackers for outs.
PIZZA PORT BREWERY BYE
CARLSBAD INN 15 ARMY NAVY ACADEMY 5
Game tied 1-1 through 3 innings. CBI up 5-4 end of sixth. Does anybody WANT this game? CBI wins the final 3 innings 10-1 in spite of Dave Ash's over-the-fencer and Joe Kahn's bases-loaded one-handed catch in left center for ANA. Good pitching, good weather, good way to spend the morning.
Jim Biksacky had a big home run for I-5 Bail Bonds in today's game vs O'Ireland at Pine on August 25th.
