PICKUP GAME BULLETIN!
EFFECTIVE MONDAY, JUNE 20, PICKUP GAMES WILL MOVE TO LAKE PARK FOR THE SUMMER.
15THURSDAY JULY 21ST
HARBOR HOUSE 15 O'IRELAND 15
Harbor House and O'Ireland fought to a heat shortened eight inning 15 to 15 tie ball game. Neither team got more than two runs ahead at the end of an inning until OI scored 5 in the bottom of the 7th when 7 of the 8 batters got hits. HH stormed back in the top of the 8th with several walks and a grand slam by Vern Blough, then held OI scoreless in the bottom half. Vern, Marlon Moore and Charles O'Brien of HH and Pete Pensereyes and Wally Wallace of OI were all 4 for 4. Lots of good defense by both teams, with Barbie McCully and Michiko Lischin making some key plays. Welcome back off the DL to Janet Wood, who pitched the first five innings for OI.
PIZZA PORT 15 CARLSBAD INN 5
Pitching and defense was the name of the game for PP. With Rich Keefer once again twirling a masterpiece and the infield playing mostly masterful defense, PP held a previously unbeaten Carlsbad Inn to 5 runs. PP shut them out, for all but one inning. Mark Embry made his debut and made plays all over the field. Because PP only batted for 6 innings, no real big numbers were amassed, however Michael Weinriech and Dave Grull each had 4 hits. Bob Blakely made a fine running catch and Bill (87 years young) Laird, showed once again, why is the best last batter in the line up hitter, in the league:-)!!!! Looking forward to having our complete team together next week. PS. Thanks to Commish John Vivrret for umpiring. However his insisting everyone hurry up, was a bit hypocritical. JV takes longer than anyone in the league getting in the batters box. He takes longer putting on his "batting gloves", than OJ did, in the courtroom:-)
THAT PIZZA PLACE-bye
THURSDAY JULY 21ST
I-5 BAIL BONDS 17 THAT PIZZA PLACE 10
Sparked by homers from Dennis Poulson and Steve Sexton, I-5 Bail Bonds busted out of jail for their first win of the season. Dennis was 4 for 4, as were John Wakeman and Steve Berry, while rookie pitcher Jack Schwarzel pitched a fine 7 inning game. Unfortunately, the air conditioning didn't seem to be working in the dugouts. Somebody call the City of Carlsbad!
THE DRAFT 21 NUCCI'S 8
Hot day, but cool breeze at Capistrano today (watch out for mole/gopher/squirrel holes in the outfield). The Draft picked up their play with 4 players hitting 4 for 4: Mac McDonough, Kevin Armentano, Marty Fenlon (938 avg so far), and Ken Besecker. Scoring came from the entire order and errors were few as The Draft took advantage of a short handed Nucci's (loaning them 2 players). Bev Jones was dangerous at 2nd today, snagging TOO many hard hit balls her way and depriving DR players of "sure" hits. Rick Shaw had a triple for NU. Steve D'Agostino & Hank Plotkin pitched well in the heat for their respective teams. Kevin Armentano showed some excellent/strategic running today, stretching everything from singles to doubles, doubles to runs, etc. Great awareness.
Marlon Moore of Harbor House leads his team off of the field after a game against O'Ireland at Lake Park on July 21st.
Rich Reynolds of I-5 Bail Bonds hits against Hugh O'Neill of That Pizza Place during a game at Alga Norte on July 21st. Dennis Poulson watches from 2nd base.
