SCORES-TUESDAY OCTOBER 13TH
LIFELINE 21 O-SIDE PAINTING 8
Lifeline jumped ahead early in the game, collecting 9 runs in the first 2 innings and building on the lead every inning. John Cellini homered in the 2nd inning and Wally Wallace and substitute John Vivrett hit home runs in inning 5. Wally, Les Beccue, and Mike Seidel were all 4 for 4. For O-side Painting, Ray O’Tool hit a home run (but he stopped at 3rdbase). Both teams were eager for the game to end on this very hot day. Glenn Miller, Neil Cohen, and Ray O'Toole went 4 for 4 for OP. Thanks to John Vivrett for substituting for Lifeline.
THE DRAFT 19 PIZZA PORT 12
The Draft came out slugging and never looked back, with 5 runs in the 1st and another 5 in the 4th inning. It was a hot and humid day at Alga Norte, so we played 7, and both teams were short so DR loaned TPP a player and we played 11 on 11. DR was missing several of its top players, but Eddie Gillette helped out (thanks Eddie) and the team hit from top to bottom. Special notice to Steve Newberg who shown at 2nd with a crucial double play to 3rd and Joe Gomez (also 4 for 4) with a double play on 1st, both TPP players caught flat footed after line drive outs to the infield. Marty Topper hit a HR for DR while John Quigley hit one for TPP. Gary Smith and Steve D'Agostino hit 1000 for The Draft.
SCORES-TUESDAY OCTOBER 13TH
NUCCI'S 10 TERI 8
It was a hot/humid slight breeze at Pine Park today. Both teams had good defense and sportsmanship. In the second inning Teri had 3 runs and then Dave Granum hit a smacking HR to bring in two runs for Nucci’s. The game was tied 4-4 in the bottom of the 5th “moon doggy” Rich Reynolds hit a HR to right field to bring in a solo run. Then jack London hit a nice triple to Left field. Evie Schwartz hit a nice single to left field to score Jack London. At the top of the 8th Nucci’s had 7 runs and then Teri’s bats came alive and scored 3 runs to tie the game again at 7-7. Nucci’s had three good hits in the 9th which gave them the lead and then we held Teri to one run in the 9th for the victory.
GOT PAIN 15 CARLSBAD INN 3
LET'S BLAME IT ON THE HEAT. Most of the excitement of the game had Jon Q running through a stop sign at 3rd, no outs in 1st, and lamentably getting gunned down at home. Words were exchanged and GP SS decided to call it a day. Lily Q was voted the Nobel Peace prize as she dragged said SS, 1/2 way to parking lot, back to finish the game. Good thing. End of 5, heat stuck again and CI pitcher had enough and went home. Hank Plotkin, on loan for the game to GP (thanks Hank and Don F), returned to CI and Jay stepped up and pitched 2 terrific innings and just too many guns (and maybe error free defense) as Marlon, Oscar, Jay, Gordon C and Ron Cip all 3/3 in this 15-3 GP win.
THAT PIZZA PLACE-bye
