July 22 Highlights

ANDY & BARNEY'S (7) - GLASS CITY Investigations (0) (f): Andy & Barneys Sports Bar - Glass City failed to field a team, losing on a forfeit 7-0.

Freedom Machinery F&M (14) - THE RETIREMENT GUYS (11):
Freedom Machinery came away with a 14 to 11 victory in eight innings over the Retirement Guys last night. Great defense along with some clutch hitting led to a hard-fought victory over a very good team. Jay Schramm was supreme as a pool player going 4/5 including a OTF hr. BTW Jay is 20 out of his last 21 at bats...AWESOME! All the players on the team hit very well and I am very proud of them. Thanks also for Roger stepping up as a pool player to help round things off.

WHEELOCK PHARMACY (21) - Joel Hansen STATE FARM (13): Wheelock Pharmacy took a 2--1 lead after the first inning against State Farm and never relinquished it en route to a 21-13 victory. State Farm tallied 7 runs in the 6th inning to close the gap to 3 runs, but Wheelock added 5 in the 7th while shutting out State Farm in the last of the seventh to hang on for the win.
Joel Hansen State Farm - The Farmers put on a surge in the sixth inning with a 7 spot to get within 3 runs but fell short as Wheelock put up 5 more in the 7th. State Farm was again led by Al Seeger 4/4, John Brubaker, Bob Briggs and sub Bill Bray all ¾ and five teammates 2/4. Thanks to Bill Bray and Jim Benore for being pool play support for the Farm team both games on this evening.

SHAWN'S IRISH TAVERN (12) - HARVARD BARBER SHOP (8):
Shawn's pulled out another late inning victory over Harvard Barbershop by scoring 5 runs in the top of the seventh and then holding off Harvard's bats to pick up the win by a 12-8 score. It was a pitcher's duel as the score was knotted at 7 after 5 innings and a scoreless 6th led up to the decisive 7th. Rob Ravin had his first inside the park homer ever to cap the 5 run last inning rally. Jim Dandar went 4-4, Larry Gagin 2-2; Jim Dunlavy and Rob Ravin 3-4; John Johnson 2-3 (after hitting 1.000 the last 3 games) as did Chuck Strzesynski. Rick Schmidt had 2 hits and had a couple of great snags at first, the last gem getting the final out. Another team effort.
Harvard, in a back and forth game, were tied at 7 after 6 innings. Shawn's put up a 5 spot in top of the 7th and we could only muster 1 in the bottom to lose to Shawn's 12 -8. Led in hitting by Ashman 2/3,1 double and an OTF HR plus 4 RBI's. Nickelsen, Brownfield, and Wisenewski all were 2/3, Wisenewski also recorded a triple.

Joel Hansen STATE FARM (25) - THE RETIREMENT GUYS (19): Joel Hansen State Farm - In the nightcap the Farmers pounded out 27 hits and were able to hold off a game Retirement Guys team. Leading the way for the Farm was Bob Briggs 4/4 (7/8 on the night), Al Seeger 3/3 (7/7 on the night), Roger Smith 4/4, Jim Benore 4/4, with Bill Bray and Dale Knepper each ¾. It is very inspiring to watch as many of my teammates and opponents come to the park each game night and are willing to go through a lot of pain in order to keep playing this game that they love and enjoy. It is very evident that playing is winning for our group.

SHAWN'S IRISH TAVERN (10) - WHEELOCK PHARMACY (9):
Shawn's once again waited until the late innings to snatch a victory over a spirited Wheelock team 10-9. Down by 4 runs going into the bottom of the 6th, Dwaine Nemire started the 5 run rally by ripping an inside the park homer to left. A few singles set the stage for Larry Gagin's bases clearing triple and John Johnson drove in the 5th run. The inning was kept alive by 2 hitters getting their only hits of the game, but they came at a crucial time. Ahead by one, Shawn's defense earned their salaries as Jim Dunlavy ran down a tricky fly to right center for the first out. A grounder up the middle was deflected by Chuck Strzesynski, and picked up by the shortstop who just barely beat the runner at 1st for the second out. A knuckling line drive caught by Jim Dandar at short ended the nail biter game. Don Dheel was perfect at the plate going 3-3 plus turning a couple of double plays. Dunlavy and Gagin were 3-4, Schmidt, Ravin and Nemire 2-3. Everyone contributed in their own way for another team effort.
Wheelock Pharmacy - In the 2nd game, it was deja vu all over again. For the 3rd time this season, Wheelock came up short by one run versus Shawns. Final score was 10-9. Both teams played well defensively. Special kudos to Wheelock shortstop, Ron Callison, just off the DL for an excellent job and to Rick Stager, who made a stellar play in left center, taking an extra base hit away from Billy Baldwin.

ANDY & BARNEY'S (19) - HARVARD BARBER SHOP (6):
Andy & Barneys Sports Bar - The two best teams in the West Division paired off, with Andy & Barney's coming out on top 19-5. A&B sits atop the West Division with a 12-3 record. A&B's batted first, and the team was off and running scoring 5 in the 1st., 2nd, and 3rd innings. Harvard scored four runs in the bottom of first, with the big blow being a HR by Dave Ashman. A&B's squad settled down and allowed only one more run. Again, defense, stellar pitching and speed was the difference. Tim Kuszmaul was 4/4, with two doubles. Dann Schlembaker was 3/4 and Jon Labeau 3/4 with ITPHR. Roy Woodworth and Bill Garber collected two hits each.
Harvard - The barbers lost to a very good A&B team 19-6. Jerry Keefe kept our bats silent after the first inning when responded to their 5 runs with 4 of our own. After spotting A&B 15 runs in the first 3 innings, a pitching change was in order. Gary Meyer came in with his blazing fast ball (haha) and allowed only 4 more in the next 3. Led in hitting again by Ashman with 1 double and an OTF HR and 3 RBI's. Yocum went 3/3, Nickelsen, Brownfield, Smith and Anderson all went 2/3. Only 1 more game
to go, let's go into the tourney on a winning note guys.

Freedom Machinery F&M (7) - GLASS CITY Investigations (0) (f): The game was forfeited due to lack of players by the Investigators.

Highlights 7/24
FRICKER'S 1 (23) - BARROW'S JEWELERS (22): Frickers#1 - The red team of Frickers #1 once again used the seventh inning to pull off another come from behind win is an exciting gamed played against Barrows. Both teams combined for 20 runs in the first two innings, and then settled for a see saw game through six innings, with #1 up by one. Barrows hammered out another 5 runs in the top of the seventh to take a four run lead, but #1 was not done. John Yocom drilled a two run OTF HR to pull #1 to within two runs, and then Richard Block followed after two got on with a three run OTF HR to win the game 23 to 22. #1 was led by Gary Beale 3 for 3, OTF HR, 4 RBI, John Yocom, 3 for 4, OTF HR, 4 RBI, Neal Klopping 3 for 4, Jim Czerniakowski 3 for 4, and Richard Block with his OTF HR and 4 RBI.
Barrows Jewelry lost another heartbreaker by a score of 23 to 22 due to a walk off 3 run home run by Richard Block in the bottom of the seventh inning. Barrow had gone ahead in the top of the seventh due to a grand slam by Dave Ashman which gave us a three run lead going into the bottom. A tough seesaw battle back and forth but a fun game nonetheless. Jay Schramm had a three for five night with one OTFHR. Dave Ashman added his OTFHR (Grand Slam) and another double that nearly got out. Ed Blankenship added two doubles and a triple and four singles. Barrows still plays with a lot of heart and eventually will break the snakebite.


FRICKER'S 10 (16) - Jeff Traudt STATE FARM (1):
Fricker's 10 - Fricker's led by Rick Hendees' 3 hits including an OTFHR.Rick Schmidt also had three hits. Randy
Bores pitched a great game and team defence was important.
Jeff Traudt State Farm - The farm boys suffered their 10th straight defeat as they only managed 7 hits in the first game of a doubleheader. Jon LeBeau and Darrell Berry were the only players to register two hits. Jim Dunlavy recorded the lone RBI.


FRICKER'S 2 (20) - SCHNEIDER SONS' ELEC (15):
Fricker's 2 - In the first game of a doubleheader last night we jumped out to an early lead only to have to score 5 times in both the 6th and 7th innings to outlast Schneider Electric 20-15. The bottom three in the lineup carried the day for Fricker's with Cary Weaver, Mark Bodenmiller and Bill Evans each going 3-4 for the game. Phil Richard contributed 4 hits as well. The win improved Frickers record to 8-2 on the season.
Schneider Sons' Electric - Well it was a tough game on Thursday at Pacesetter against a smart well oiled Fricker's 2. Fricker's jumped out with 4 in the 1st to Schneiders' 1. After that Schneider's boys started to turn up the heat a little and eventually took the lead in the 4th 11 to 10 when Norm Cairl and Monty Coffman hit back to back over the fence homeruns. But that was it and Fricker's took the lead again final score 20 to 15.


FRICKER'S 3 (18) - ALLSHRED SERVICES (12):
Fricker's #3 came to the park with hot bats and scored early to finish with a 18 to 12 score over Allshred. A couple double plays, Ron Fox handling line drives up the middle and the outfield playing solid made it a well played game.Mark Clair (5-5) Tim Kuszmaul (4-5) Fritz (3-4 OTF HR) and Lenny Jones (3-5) at the top of the line up along with Granville (3-4 2b), Roy and Charlie (2-4) at the bottom got #3 started on the way to goon night of hitting.
Allshred hung tough four innings matching hits and runs with Fricker's 3. But, in the end what made the difference was Fricker's 3 ability to score every inning but one.
Hitting throughout Allshred lineup took place. Tim Wilde and Bob Miller lead the way with three hits each.

ROOSTERS (13) - FRICKER'S 11 (12):
The Roosters squad used the hammer to pull out a short handed and hard fought win against a solid Fricker's 11 team. Both teams played a little tight with Roosters limiting Fricker's to 4 runs through the first four innings. Fricker's put up 4 runs in the fifth and sixth to take a 12-8 lead but failed to score in the top of the seventh. Hider Hillau got us rolling with a lead off 2b in the seventh and we rolled to five runs pulling out a hard fought win. Hitting leaders for Roosters were Scott Gist 5/5, Mike Hamann 4/4, with Bob Collins, Jose Mondragon, Dave Williams and Hider Hillau all contributing 3 hits each. Bill Baldwin had a big sixth inning xtra base hit for Fricker's.
Frickers #11 team lost a tough battle with the very fine Roosters squad. We took a 4 run lead into the bottom of the seventh, only to see the Barbers put up 5 runs for the win. The loss ended a nice 7 game win streak we had going as well. Leading hitters: Jeff Huskisson ( 3-3 2RBI 2B R), also, over the last 7 games Jeff has 18 hits in 21 at bats, an .857 clip. Bill Baldwin (3-3 R 2RBI), Joe Bondy ( 2-3 2R RBI), In our last 8 games Joe has gone 22-25, also posting the same ridiculously lofty .857 avg. as Jeff, Wade Timming(2-3 R 2RBI), In the last 4 games Wade has hit .636 with 8RBI, Pat Siebenaller(2-3 R RBI), and Mark Gedert (2-3 R). We would also like to give kudos to Jase Sweede, over the 8 games prior, Jase was 20-25, a scorching .800 mark. Also, I would like to acknowledge my teammates dedication, as we have 13 players on our roster and all 13 have been at every inning of every game. That is to be commended. Thanks guys. We would also thank Jim Czerniakowski for umping, and doing a fine job of it.


ST. CLARE COMMONS (15) - FRICKER'S 12 (6): St. Clare Commons was able to outlast a good Frickers 12 team by the score of 15-6. Everyone contributed in a well played offensive and defensive game. A big thanks to John Yocum and Don Diehl for beiing pool players and a huge part of our victory tonight.
FRICKER'S 12 was locked in a tight contest, with the score 9-6, top of the 7th, when St. Clare Commons scored six unearned runs to take a 15-6 lead. #12 failed to
score in the bottom of the 7th. Our thanks to pool player Steve Higgins.


FRICKER'S 3 (23) - FRICKER'S 2 (22): Fricker's #3 had to have on of it's best hitting nights of the year and scored 4 runs in the bottom of the 7th to edge Fricker's #2 with all their good hitters 23 to 22 in the night cap of a DH. Never having the lead and trailing by 10 in the top of the 4th inning #3 came up with 6 in the bottom and added 5 in the 6th and 4 at the end. With all of the hitting, as normal both defenses got a little stressed at times but played hard and made some nice plays. Tim was again (4-5,3b) Glen Smillie (3-4 with a 2b and OTF HR) Fritz & Marty (3-5) Grandville (3-5) with the winning hit and the rest of the team came up with 2 hits each.
Fricker's 2 - In the nightcap, again jumped out to an early lead against Marty Harrison's Fricker's #3 until multiple errors and poor defensive decisions allowed Frickers #3 to score 9 times in the 6th and 7th innings and steal a 23-22 win from the division leading Frickers #2. Jeff Wagenhauser and Rick Doran each doubled and tripled joining Phil Richard in going 4-5 at the plate. Mike Sanders went 3-4. The disappointing loss drops Frickers #2 record to 8-3.

FRICKER'S 10 (17) - Jeff Traudt STATE FARM (14): Frickers #10 - Rick Hendee , Stager and Schmidt all had 3 hits. Hindee hit another OTFHR. Randy Bores led with 4 hits. Each team scoreed runs in every inning other than the 5th. Fricker's defense finished the Farmers off with a game ending double play with runners on base.
State Farm made a much better game of it in the nite cap as they had 20 hits. Keith Dominiack 3-4-3-2B, Ray Armstrong 3-4-1R, and Jim Dunlavy 3-4-2R led the hitting.
Two hits each were produced by Jim Watters, Darrell Berry, and Bryan Chalka. Thanks to Patrick Henry 1-3-3R-2B who played well as a sub.
