Aug. 21 Highlights
BARROW'S JEWELERS (11)) - ST. CLARE COMMONS (6): Barrow's Jewelers finally found fate on their side with an 11 to 6 win over St. Clare Commons. Bob Ruckman pitched his best game of the year mixing and matching his knuckleball with his split finger delivery. He induced several pop ups and fly outs, six of which went to Dave Ashman in right center. All of Barrow's players delivered a key hit or nice defensive play to ensure a victory. Pool Player Gary Beale helped out in left and Terry Finch moved from infield to outfield due to help out Bill Garber who played with a pulled hamstring. A total team effort with a balanced hitting attack led by Jay Schramm with a double and a couple singles and Phil Carolan caught fire lining through the infield with a couple singles. Mike Betley came in as a defensive replacement and made a double play ball to thwart a rally. The team had a lot of spirit through a tough season gearing up for post season ball.
FRICKER'S 3 (17) - FRICKER'S 12 (16): Fricker's #3 jumped out to a 9 to 3 lead then was able to hold off a hard charging Fricker's #12 for a 17 to 16 final score. In the field Grandville Smith did a great job in RF keeping runners from taking extra bases, smooth double plays by Lenny Jones and Roy Woodworth were key inning ending plays. At bat going 3 for 4 were Tim Kuszmaul, Mark Clair, Glen Smillie and Ron Fox. Marty (4-4, 2OTF) Lenny (2-3) and Fritz,Tom Parker II, Roy and Charlie McMillen with two hits each. Leading off the bottom of the 6th with three 2b hits by Fritz and Tom, then Glen proved to be the winning margin for #3.
FRICKER'S #12 lost to Marty Harrison's Fricker's #3 in a close, down-to-the-wire contest. Top hitters: Dave Obert, 4/4, four runs scored and Dan Korcsog, 4/4 with three runs scored.
ALLSHRED SERVICES (15) - FRICKER'S 11 (14): Allshred defeated Frickers 11 by a score of 15-14 in a very close game. Tim Wilde and Woody Woodrow each collected 4 hits while Bob Hoffman, John Brubaker, Rob Boehme, and Matt Edinger each had 3 hits. Bob Miller contributed an OTF home run in Allshred's 27 hit attack.
Frickers #11 - Too little offense and defense for the #11 team again. Leading Hitters: Sub extraordinaire Jeff Wagenhausen (3-3 2OTF HR's 5 RBI), Jeff Huskisson (4-4 2R RBI 2B), Jase Sweede (3-4 2B RBI), and Bill Baldwin (3-4 RBI). Mark Gedert also added an OTF HR and 2 RBI.
FRICKER'S 1 (17) - FRICKER'S 2 (16): Fricker's 1 had some exciting games lately and tonight was no exception. Putting 4 runs aross the plate in the 1st inning, then 5 apiece in the 2nd and 4th was off to a good start. Then that good hitting team of Fricker's 2 would not be denied and came back to tie the game with 6 runs in the 5th and tied the game in the top of the 7th. Now bottom of the 7th, game tied and up steps sub Al 'Hot Bat' Seeger (4/4) who blasted a triple to right field to start the inning. Two intentional walks later loaded the bases and up steps Nate 'Watch Me Now' Freeman who screamed a liner to left for the winning run. Other note worthy events were watching Gary Beale make some great defensive catches in the outfield and hitting a home run, Marty Czerniakowski had a nice running catch to stop a rally.
John 'Scoop' Yocom making put outs at first. A special thanks to subs Al Seeger and Mark Clair for contributing to this win along with a great team effort by everyone on the team!
Frickers #2 let a golden opportunity to take the division lead last night falling to Fricker's #1 17-16. Every Fricker's #2 loss this season has come in the final inning and last night was no exception. Cary Weaver, Ron Jones and Jeff Gorney each had three hits for #2 and Mike Sanders hit an OTF home run. The loss was Fricker's #2's fifth straight although they still have a chance to claim the division lead next week.
ROOSTERS (19) - Jeff Traudt STATE FARM (17): Roosters Men’s Grooming Center - In a tightly contested battle, the Men of Roosters finally prevailed over a very competitive and determined Traudt State Farm team that greatly belies their win-loss record. The agents of Traudt State Farm scored in every inning against a surprisingly average Roosters team defense. The Monsters of Monroe Street were able to flex their offensive muscles enough to finally put the game away in the bottom of the sixth inning. Roosters was led by Jose “The Cycle” Mondragon’s inside the park HR and Javier “Amazing” Almanza’s tree-splitting OTF HR, along with three hits each from Greg Ballmer, Kevin Koepfer and Jeff Szenderski.
The Farm Boys with only (1) win on the season took on the top team in the league Roosters to the 7th inning before droping a very closely played game thru out. Despite being able to score every inning on Roosters it was the big 4-5 run innings Roosters put up in the only innings they scored. The Farm got a 3-3-2R-3B effort by their pitcher Mark Keeling who settled down to throw strikes in the late innings. Jon LeBeau was 3-5-3R-3B-OTFHR, Jim Watters 3-5-1R, Ray Armstrong 3-4-1R, Keith Dominiak 2-5-3R-OTFHR, while sub- Marty Harrison, John Grayczyk, and Jim Dunlavy all had 2 hits.
ALLSHRED SERVICES (21) - SCHNEIDER SONS' ELEC (14): Allshred beat Schneider & Sons' in their second game of the night. Bob Miller went 4 for 4 with an OTF home run. Bob Huffman, Daryl Rodney, Matt Edinger, and Guy Stager all had 3 hits in a well played game. Overall it was a very good night for Allshred as they had to play well to win two hard fought games!
FRICKER'S 12 (21) - FRICKER'S 11 (9): FRICKER'S #12 bounced back from a lost in the first game, to win 21-9, in five innings against Fricker's #11 and up their record to 8-7. The bats came alive, banging out 26-hits off the offerings of Brett Crosby. Dave Obert and Dan Korcsog each homered. Joe Behan was 3/3: two doubles and a triple. Charlie Oberlin, Jim VanBrandt and Dave Brownfield went 3/3. Ric Obert, 3/4, made several really fine stops at 3b. Outfielders Mark Murphy, Behan and Obert were on the run: with several fine catches each. SS Rick Behan had a hot glove, with an-over-the-shoulder grab in r/c and several fine stops at short.
Frickers #11 team suffered its 5th straight loss, this time to Jerry's squad. Thanks to Dan Calmes for subbing, Dan was 1-2,BB, R. Also : Dave Kunst (3-3 2B RBI), Jeff Huskisson (2-3 2R RBI), Jase Sweede (2-3 2B RBI),and Bill Baldwin (2-3 2B RBI).
FRICKER'S 10 (13) - SCHNEIDER SONS' ELEC (8): Fricker's 21 hits shocked the electrician team and scored 13 runs. Fricker's pitching and defense short circuited Schneider's bats.
