SCORES-TUESDAY AUGUST 4TH
O-SIDE PAINTING 14 THAT PIZZA PLACE 13
In a heat shortened 7 inning game at steamy Alga Norte Park, O-Side Painting trailed by 5 runs with 2 out and a runner at first. But then a succession of base hits followed, capped off by a grand slam by Glenn Miller, and 6 runs came across the plate for a 14-13 lead. OP ace pitcher Chuck Kinnick then shut down TPP for the win.
THE DRAFT 15 NUCCI'S 12
Grabbing some great line drives: Pete Heubner, Eric Joline, Ed Baker, Steve Newberg (also double plays: whatever it takes Newberg, who also hit a HR), and Gary Smith. The Draft's defense was enough to stop Nucci's in spite of Bill Swinks gapper HR to right., Marty Topper with a triple on a bad knee and Dave Ash HR's proved too much on a hot day at Lake. Joe Gomez, pitching in the sun the whole game also went 4 for 4. Wolfie's single with the bases loaded in the second brought in the only run, but in the end, The Draft finally beat Nucci's after 2 losses earlier in the season.
SCORES-TUESDAY AUGUST 4TH
PIZZA PORT 15 CARLSBAD INN 10
In a nine inning game at Pine the scoring was low due to excellent infield play by both teams. Jay Knohl was 4 for 5 and Paul Shook was 3 for 4 for Pizza Port. Shook and CBI pitcher Bill Hussar threw outstanding walk-free games. Mitch Anderson stroked a no-doubter home run for Carlsbad Inn.
LIFELINE 22 TERI 16
TERI came out with guns blazing, tallying 5 runs in the 1st. Lifeline shot back with 5 runs of its own. This first inning augured for the kind of game it would be. At the end of 6, Lifeline held on to a thin lead--15 to 14. Then, Lifeline slowly increased its lead. Key hits by Tony Ruffolo and Dan Tzucanow kept Lifeline ahead. Great catches by Michael Juditz and Wally Wallace kept Teri at bay. In the 8th, Lifeline scored 5 runs and breathed a little easier. Teri ran out of time. The two Michaels (Juditz and Seidel) were 5 for 5. Good hitting throughout the lineup. Thanks to Jon "the mighty" Quinn for umping.
