The Draft's Steve D'Agostino lets one fly to right in a game at Calavera against Oside Painting on September 1.
Mike Davis of O-Side Painting hits against Got Pain while his designated runner Dan Menendez takes off during a game at Lake Park on August 27th. Mike had 4 for 4 day at the plate.
SCORES-TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 1
TERI 9 PIZZA PORT 0 (forfeit)
In a controversial game Pizza Port came out swinging. With the assist of Mari Gallucci and Wally Wallace on loan from Lifeline, PP racked up 14 runs in the first 3 innings. Led at the plate by Chuck Dodd, David Grull and Eddie Gillette, they built up a 19 to 3 lead, going into the last inning. Teri tried to mount a rally, but fell short 19 - 8. Vicki Asalvao pitched masterfully, and Paul "Pablo" Shook, set an NCSS record for first basemen, as he threw 2 runners out at the plate, in the same inning. Alas, in the end, Pizza Port was forced to forfeit, as their 8th player was not able to get to the field, until 7 minutes after the "official" start of the game. Kind of a shame.
NUCCI'S 11 GOT PAIN 9
Finally the heat wave is over!!
Steve Berry and Les Beccue had a pitcher’s duel going on today with both teams neck and neck each inning.
Some fine defensive plays from Steve Sexton and Ish Velasquez who ended the ninth with a line drive stop for the 3rd out. GP thanks Les Beccue and Ed Navarro for subbing for their team.
SCORES-THURSDAY AUGUST 27TH
THE DRAFT 21 OSIDE PAINTING 10
The bats came out again for The Draft as nearly every batter went 2 for 3, 3 for 4, or 4 for 4. Steve D'Agostino snagged a great over the shoulder blooper in right field to help the defense while Dave Ash and Marty Topper went long and Eric Juline hit a booming line drive to the center field fence as The Draft scored in every inning. Oside was hampered by a shortage of players and had to borrow 2 each inning, but played valiantly all the way.
CARLSBAD INN 20 THAT PIZZA PLACE 9
Carlsbad Inn broke out their bat's today and scored a season high 20 runs in a well played game against That Pizza Place. TPP jumped out to a 3 - 0 lead in the first, but by the 4th inning the score was tied 7 all. Both teams continued to add runs to the score board, however CBI pushed across more. The big blow was in the seventh inning when Mark Embrey hit a towering shot to left for a grand slam, welcome back Mark. This was followed up by a Pete Penseyres solo shot to right center. Every one on CBI had at least one hit with Pistol Pete leading the way going 4-4. Following closely behind were , Bill Hussar 3-4 needing only a double for the cycle. Hank Plotkin, Harold Zaroff, Mark Embrey,Ken Besecker & Michael Juditz were all 3-4. Pete Zavala for TPP was a one man wrecking crew hitting 2 home runs and a triple before finally making an out. Thanks to Michael Juditz for filling in for Mitch.
