Fricker's Red 12, Fricker's Black 11

Fricker's Red
The Red men got back on the winning track, ending up on top in a close game, 12 - 11. The outlook wasn't brilliant for the Red men, trailing 11-4 after 5 innings of play. However, the Red men found their bats in the top of the 6th inning, taking advantage of the catch-up rule to tie the game. The seven hit, seven run barrage was capped by Doug Meek's towering three run home run.
In the top of the 7th inning, with the game knotted at 11 runs apiece, the lead run was 90 feet from home plate. Matt Edinger lofted a sacrifice fly that scored what proved to be final and winning run of the game. In the bottom of the 7th, Fricker's Black provided some drama by getting the potential tying and winning runs on base, but failed to score, leaving those two men stranded. Leading the offense for Fricker's Red were: Larry Wilcynski 3-4, 2B(2); Doug Meek 3-4, 2B, HR; Matt Edinger 3-3, SAC, GW RBI; Brett Crosby 2-3, 2B(2); Mark Goodremont 3-3; Phil Franklin 2-3.

Fricker’s Black
Fricker’s Black got out to a fast start taking an 11 to 4 lead. The five run rule may have stopped Black but the catch-up rule allowed Red to comeback with 7 runs in the 6th to tie the game and ultimately win in the 7th. Black was led by Mark Gedert going 3 for 3. Scott Richardville and Matt Giles both hit OTF home runs. Dave Ashman, Randy Ryman, Matt Dillon, Giles and Richardville each went for 2 for 3. Tough loss on a beautiful night for a ball game.



Frickers Baby Blue 18, Traudt State Farm 14

Traudt State Farm
This was a great back and forth game and was dead even going into the seventh inning. Baby Blue did not score in the top of the 7th and Traudt got runners on base in the bottom of the inning but could not get that timely hit. Blue broke it open in the top of the 8th to pull out the win. Traudt did get good hits from Jerry Glansman, Sid Siddall and Larry Slomka. Want to thank Bob Collins and Mark Stroh for filling in for us.

Fricker's Baby Blue
It was everything that Baby Blue could do to hang on for the win against a game group of Farmers. It took an extra inning to determine the outcome of this one as Traudt battled back to tie the game in the 6th. Blue took control, scoring 6 in the extra frame and held State Farm to just 2 runs in the bottom half to secure the win. There was no quit on either side. Offensively, Blue had 5 players with 3 hits each; Perry Chillus, Terry Patterson, Patrick Henry, Jeff Huskisson and Tim Rowe.



Frickers Navy 17, Frickers White 6

Frickers Navy 17
The Navy team regrouped and played an outstanding game against a fine White team. The defense was great, pitching marvelous, and the offense was much improved. Hitting leaders: Jay Schramm (4-4 OTF HR 4RBI ), Wayne Harris ( 4-4 4R RBI), Dave Sanecki ( 3-3 OTF HR 3RBI), Kris Brickman ( 2-4 2RBI ), and Woody Woodrow( 2-4 R). And again, we would like to thank our outstanding subs, Dave Obert and Mark Clair. Dave played flawlessly in LC, and went 2-4 3R 2RBI. Mark again nailed down the middle of the infield, and added a hit, a run and 2 RBI. Thanks guys and good job Navy.

Fricker's White
Capt. Dan, on his way out of town reports: "We were flat as pancakes might be the best way to describe our performance. And we got our butts whipped 17-6."



Barrows Jewelers 15, Fricker's Black 19

Barrows Jewelers
The Jewelers led by Gary Beale 4/4 and robbing Dave Sanecki of a HR. Gary catch was ESPN catch of the day ! Bruce Klostermeire, and Tim Kuszmaul had 3 hits.Having 2 hits were Gary Gardner, Ron Fox ,Ed Eckhart, Rick Schmidt and sub Gary Downey. Maybe Jerry Keefe should go on the D/L not being able to pitch in back to back games. Thanks to Gary Downey and John Yocum for subbing !!

Fricker’s Black
Fricker’s Black played very well including three innings that the five run rule was the only thing that stopped them from running away with this game. The bats were hot and the fielding was very good. Led by Scott Richardville going 4 for 4, followed by Mark Gedert and Dave Ashman 3 for 4 along with Norm Cairl, Marty Schmenke and Terry Thomas all going 2 for 3. Thanks to Dave Sanecki filling in for Phil Richard and Larry Wilczynski filling in for Matt Dillon (Hamstring pull) and Jerry Keefe (sore lower back). This win for Black made the Fricker’s Maroon Team happy as it put them in sole possession of first place.



Fricker's Baby Blue 22, Schneider Electric 23

Schneider Electric
The Electricians were able to stand the long distance hiting of Baby Blue who put out 3 OTFHR's along with many extra base hits. Schneider's hit a season high 30 hits for a torrid .714 avg. coupled with 2 HR's themselves coming from Mike Sanders 3-3-3R-2B-OTFHR and Bill Trego's 4-4-3R-ISPHR. Help also came from a 3 hits apiece nite from Kyle Green, Jim Dunlavy,Guy Stager, and Dave Ronau. The bottom of seventh saw Bob Collins, Trego, and Dunlavy reach on hits and Jon La Beau 4-5-2B-3B drive in the walk of 2 runs.

Fricker's Baby Blue
In the night cap, another nail biter that went down to the last at bat. After falling way behind early, Blue came back from a 9 run deficit in the 4th to eventually taking a 1 run lead in the top of the 7th. The electricians bats were hot all night and the bottom of the 7th was no different, reeling off 3 straight hits and scoring 2 runs to end the game. Leading the offense for Blue were Terry Patterson 2/2 with 2bb and an OTF HR, Patrick Henry 4/4 with a 2b and an OTF HR and Jeff Huskisson 4/4 hitting for the cycle.



Bull Moose 7, Fricker's Maroon 12

Fricker's Maroon
Fricker's Maroon played a complete game and led start to finish in a 12-3 win against Bull Moose Retirement. Fricker's got a great pitching performance out of Jerry Edmondson who also fielded his position well. Great defense as well by Eric Iffland at SS, Granville Smith at middle infield and some nice scoops at first base by Jeff Batanian. Fricker's Maroon led in hitting by Fritz Hartkoff 3-3 with a OTF HR and 2b; Joe Beham 3-3 with an inside park HR and 2b; Carl Clark 2-3 with OTF HR; and Granville Smith 2-3 with a triple

Fricker's Maroon
"thursday night's game against the Fricker's Maroon of Joe Beham and friends was a fairly evenly matched game, but the BullMoose team seemed in a bit of a funk. The hard-hitting marooners took an early 5 spot in the first and never seemed to look back... The moose crew scored 7 runs on just 16 hits for the entire game.. defense was a little sloppy as well.. Tonight's game belonged to the "fricken chicken" crew.. "

Harvard Barber Shop 7, Guardian Angels 13

Harvard Barber Shop
After only trailing 3-1 after three innings, the Angels put this one away scoring 8 in the next two, to win going away 13-7. The Barbers were led in hitting by Smith & Donaldson both 3/3 and Koder 2/2. The rest of the team only scratched up four more hits. Tough loss for the Barbers.

Guardian Angels
The Guardian Angels once again played good defence and defeated a good Harvard Barbershop 13-7. Leading the hitting for the Angels were Mark Keeling and Darrell Smock 3 for 3, Craig Mantey was 3 for 4, John Brubaker, Gary Ruth, Jim Nickelson, Jim Fedor were 2 for 3. Good job guys.



Citizens Advisory Group 22, Rudy's Hot Dog 12

Citizens Advisory Group
CAG put together a 32 hit game and played good enough defense to hold Rudy's to 12 runs. Citizens scored 3 runs in the 1st and 15 runs in the next 3 inning to build a big lead. Don Dheel pitched another good game and went 2/2. Hitting well for CAG were Dave Ashman 4/4, Paul Wesolowski 4/4, Mark Gedert 3/4 (with 3-2B), Rob Ravin 3/4, Bill Bray 3/4, Bill Wiseman 3/4, and Phil Vrzal 3/3.

Rudy's Hot Dog
In two games this manager would like to forget, Rudy's Hot Dog took it on the chin in a doubleheader Tuesday night. The team played very hard and did the best they could but walks are as good as a base hit and that's what killed us. Citizens advisory 22 reviews hotdog 12.



Andy & Barneys 7, Krieger Realty 19

Krieger Realty
Andy & Barney played short handed due to injuries were no match for the realtors tonight!! Every player for Krieger scored. Krieger scored 5 runs in each of the first three innings off the veteran Keefe. Krieger led by Jim C. , George Bates , Jeff Szenderski, and cleanup hitter Tim Kuszmaul all had 3 hits. Big John , Charlie Feltman , Rick Schmidt and Mike Riethmiller all had 2 hits . Watch out for the playoffs .
We ( Krieger) mercy"d Andy & Barney Beat them twice now Jerry was talking to himself after the game Doug Meeks hit a ball into the top of a pine tree behind the fence, ( and he called it to me) Gunny



Glass City 29, Rudy's Hot Dog 25

Glass City Investigations
This game proved that the sleuths can play some good ball. Scoring 29 runs and playing stellar defense proved to be the difference. Glen Lewis did a nice job in left field making several diving catches. Kevin Cagle tried his luck at pitching and did an honorable job until his split finger pitch failed him. Dave Ashman did a great job filing in as a pool player and had three hits. Jerry Glanzman had a triple over right fielders head. Bob Collins had two hits and two walks. Jay Schramm went four for five. Nick Smith had two hits and did a nice job stopping grounders up the middle. Roger Kinnersley added three hits as did Jim Steffes. Dale Knepper did a nice defensive job at first base. An all around great team effort.

Rudy's Hot Dog
In two games this manager would like to forget, Rudy's Hot Dog took it on the chin in a doubleheader Tuesday night. The team played very hard and did the best they could but walks are as good as a base hit and that's what killed us. In the night cap quested investigators 25 Rudy's hotdog 20.
