Lions 9 - Blue Jays 6 (8 Innings)

The Lions survived a three run, first inning blitz and a massive, over the fence, two run blast by Jack McNulty to come back to tie the game and eventually win it with 3 runs in the 8th inning by a score of 9-6. Tom Delaney pitched an excellent game holding the Blue Jays scoreless over the last 3 innings. Hitting star of the day was Dale Cassidy, who was 4 for 4, with 2 singles, a double and a triple. Players with 2 hits were Steve Belenko, including a double, Tracy Zimmerman, Judy Agasar, Tom Delaney (and a walk) and super sub Bob Esterly. Clean up hitter Bob Gaines was 1 for 2 with a walk and 2 very important RBI’s. Hard luck player of the day was Jim Stabene, who hit the ball hard 4 times, but only one hit. Kudos to the Blue Jays for taking us to the limit before losing in extra innings. And what a blast by Jack. It was a “never a doubt” moment. Thanks again to Bob Esterly for subbing.

When the League moved to Middletown Community Park in 2017 there were estimates made about how many home runs would go flying over the fence.  No one estimated that it wouldn't happen until 6 seasons later when Jack McNulty's 2 run blast cleared the fence in left centerfield. Jack also contributed a triple and 4 RBI's. He was later intentionally walked by the lions with 2 outs and the bases clear.  These Lions might be descendents of the lion from the Wizard of Oz.  However it was those same Lions that won the day posting 3 runs in the 8th inning to edge the Blue Jays by a score of 9 to 6.  It was the Jays game to win but some key baserunning errors made the difference.  Jack McNulty led the Jays offense while Jack Donahue and Jim O'Brien had 3 hits, Lee Bullman (double), John Walsh and Ron Decker also chipped in with two hits.

Eagles 10 - Wildcats 6

The Eagles hung on to a 10-6 win over the Wildcats despite a less than stellar defensive effort.  Kevin Culp pitched his usual great game and contributed three hits to help our team secure the win.  John Salmon also contributed three hits and drove in three runs with his very timely hitting.  Joe Leone, despite a poor ankle, hustled down the line to get a key hit with two outs and allowed us to continue the fifth inning.  It was a very gutsy and unselfish run for Joe.  The Eagles were then able to score four runs which ended up being the margin of victory for the Eagles.

A 19 hit attack was wasted by the Wildcats this morning due to poor infield play in their loss to Bobby's Eagles this AM by a 10-6 final score. 3 hits from Ed Schmidt and Hal Katz, 2 hits from Frank Glauser, Bill Porter, Steve Scheele and rookie and Mike Segal. 3 innings of no offence contributed to our downfall today

Wolverines 8 - Devils 2

The Wolverines leapt out with a 3-run 1st inning and the home team Devils got one run back in the bottom half. Nobody scored in the 2nd. The Wolverines added one run in each of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th innings; and the Devils added only one more run in the 5th. The two runs scored by the Wolverines in the 7th iced our win at 8 - 2.

Tom Boyle's crafty pitching held the Devils to two runs. Dave Ortlip went 4-4 with a double. Franco Folda hit a single, a double, and a triple to go 3-4. Charley Johnson went 2-3, while Jeff Blatt and Jack Galloway went 2-4. Frank Deon, Gene Harris, Bill Matlack, and Monroe Weingarten each chipped in with a key hit

Comets 9 - Panthers 6

The Comets had 22 hits and scored 5 runs in the first and never looked back.  Defense was great turning 3 double plays. Hitting stars were Kenny Riess going 3 for 3, scoring 2 runs and 1 rbi. 2 hits for Aaron osseroff, Jeff Blznk, Tom Boyce, Bob Sylvester, Wally Wasylak and Wayne Heaton and 1 hit for Jerry Barsky, Charlie Whitaker, Jim Cro, Bill Russell, John Tvarpk. FRANKLIN SMITH, Rich Dickson. Winning pitcher was Wayne Heaton who pitched and tired in the last inning. Another great team effort and win!

The Panthers dropped another tough game to the Comets who came out blazing, scoring 5 runs in the first inning.  The Panthers chipped away but could never catch up losing 9-6 even though we had 18 hits.  Joe Grines was particularly solid on defense as a bright spot for the Panthers.  Offensive standouts were Doug Rutter going 3-3, Vince Burkett going 3-4 with a double, Joe Grines 3-4, Bob Vannozzii 3-4, Rick Rivera 2-3 and Rich Pich 2-3.
