Pizza Port 17 I5 Bail Bonds 12
With several Cleveland Indians fans playing for Pizza Port, they emulated the "tribe", with a 7 inning victory, over I 5 Bail Bonds. Indian fanaticsTom (Kipnis) Schriner, got his magic stick back, Jim (Lindor) Giovizano played a great short and Pete (Bob Feller) Huebner had a great offensive and defensive game. Also contributing on offense, were Eddie Gillette, Dave Grull and Paul Multalsky, all perfect at the plate. Newly acquired Dave Ward, hung in there to notch his first NCSS victory, despite a painful calf strain. Professor "Feller", was ready in the bullpen, but was not needed. Cudos to Donna Lorek and her father Jim (celebrating his 93rd birthday), who along with soon to be player Sheri, started a big 7 run inning, with the WAVE. And Donna does a great job, of keeping score, between waving!
Carlsbad Inn 28 Nucci's 7
Nucci's Vacation Schedule caught up with them today as Lil brought a make-shift team to Pine Field against #2 CBI. Mercifully a 7-inning game, CBI bullied their way around, with their first 5 hitters going 19/20 with 3 home runs (Juditz 2, Erwine 1). "Rentals" Roney Lewis and John Quigley earned their per diem but Rick Shaw (4/4) summed it up best. "Nice weather for soft ball, huh?"

Army Navy 20 O'Ireland 7
It was an unusually hot day for the game. Both teams had
players exit early due to the heat. Both teams toughed it
out to play a full 9 innings. In the end, the bats were hot
(literally) for the Army Navy Academy as well as their
defense with both the infield and the outfield. Still, Pete
Zavala laughed at that strong defense and was able to bat 4
for 4 for O'Ireland. For ANA, Tony Sando was able to drive
in some runs with the team's only home run this week. (Note
that Steve Newberg did not have a home run in this game, but
wanted it documented that he had a home run last week which
unfortunately went unpublished.) ANA other batting
stars were Don Agostino (3 for 3), Dave Ash (4 for 5), Tony
Ruffolo (4 for 4), and a wild and crazy Joe Gomez who went 5
for 5! Also, please note that the ANA manager, Ron Langley,
was moved to the Inactive list. Leigh Peterson will be
taking over as the team manager for the remaining games. All
the members of the ANA team extend our thanks to Ron for his
managing of the team through most of this successful season,
and we also wish him a quick recovery.
The Draft 20 Harbor House 10
The Draft really shined both offensively and defensively today. Kevin Armentano was especially hot snagging amazing catches all over and making incredible double plays (like Mike Griffith to Kevin to Larry Jaime for a double play that included an out at home). Dan Griffen also sacrificed himself with a diving catch for an infield out at just the right time. Offensively Larry Sontag, Kevin Armentano, Marty Fenlon, and Steve D'Agostino were all 3 for 3 or 4 for 4. Steve has batted 1000 for the last 3 consecutive games! Kevin is 9 for his last 10 at bats. It always feels good when the 7th place team can beat the 1st place team. Thanks to Marlin Moore and his team for being such good sports (as usual).
