Panthers 17 Wolverines 7

The Panthers put up 21 hits to defeat the Wolverines by a score of 17-7 to log their second win of the season.  The Panthers played decent defense throughout the game with the middle outfield making several nice catches.  Kudos to Jim Hart and Carl Weigand.  Standouts with the bat were Rich Pich who went 3 for 4 with a triple.  The always steady Joe Grines went 3 for 5.  Doug Rutter put up his second 3 for 3 game in his last three games.  Thanks to Kevin Culp for subbing, he also had 3 hits.  Rick Rivera, Jack Zupan, and Jim Hart had 2 hits apiece.  Here’s hoping this is the start of more competitive games for the Panthers.

After the Wolverines broke their two-game scoreless schneid against substitute pitcher Kevin Culp with a run in the first inning, the Panthers leapt ahead with a five run 2nd inning and never looked back. Thanks to Bob Esterly and Ken Riess in substitution for "snowbound" Wolverines. Ortlip, Blatt, and Galloway led the Wolverines, going 3 for 4; and Boyle, Johnson, and Harris had two hits each. While we all did have some good laughs the cellar dwelling Panthers royally ripped the weakened wonky Wolverines 17 - 7.

Eagles 14 Devils 0

The Eagles started early and scored often to top the Devils 14-0.  The Eagles were led defensively by the pitching of Kevin Culp, a nice foul catch by Dave Frayne and steady play by the infield of Howard Wibble, Del Kates, Craig Wright, Ron Mangini, Dave Courtright and Joe Leone.  Offensively they were led by Dave Courtright who had three doubles, four RBIs and three runs scored.  Ron Mangini had three hits, three runs scored and two RBI’s.  Joe Leone and Bob Esterly also contributed three hits.  Five players also had two hits including Craig Wright, Kevin Culp, Gary Jones, Howard Wibble and Bill Kreiger.

Lions 8 Comets 2

The Lions were in a tight 4 to 2 game until they scored 3 runs in the 5th to break open the game and eventually win it by an 8 to 2 margin over the Comets. Hitting and fielding stars were Bill Howland who went 3 for 3 with 3 RBI’s and Dale Cassidy who had many excellent plays at short in addition to going 2 for 4 with 2 RBI’s.  The best play of the the day was Tracy Zimmerman’s excellent throw to Dale, who threw a strike to 3rd base to cut down Charlie Whittiker’s attempt to stretch a double into a triple. Tracy, Gary Bennett and Al Avello also contributed 2 hits. Note that Jim Stabene played an excellent first base despite having a sore back. And thanks to Larry Landes who also contributed with three hard hit balls despite not physically being up to par.  Special note to Tom Delaney who pitched a great game and a total team effort on the defensive side holding the Comets scoreless after the 2nd inning.

Score today for Lions vs Comets was lions 8 Comets 2. The Lions scored 2 in the first inning to take a 2-0 lead. The Comets scored 1 in the first 2 innings to tie the game at 2 each.  In the top of the third lions scored 2 runs toke a 4-2 lead and never looked back as the Comets were shutout the rest of the game  with a final score of 8-2. Comets defense was a little porous today and the team has already contacted Jim Mahoney about being the General manager and Manager at this time.  Negotiations are already underway. Hitting stars today were Charlie Whitaker, Kenny Riess, Jeff Blank, Franklin Smith and Wayne Heaton each had 2 hits. Chipping in with one hit were Tom Boyce. Wally Wasylak and Rich Dickson. The Lions played flawless ball and made some great plays. My advanced scouting team said they have no weakness on defense and probably should not lose a game. 

Wildcats 11 Blue Jays 10

A 23 hit attack by the Wildcats came to a quick end in the bottom of the 7th after a 4 run rally by the Bluebirds in their half of the 7th inning this morning to tie the game up. 4 consecutive hits by the Wildcats offense, Frank Glouser, Bill Porter and Darrel Puzan loaded the bases with base hits and newest recruit Mike Segal lined a shot into the outfield to drive in the winning run to end a back & forth game. A 3 hit game from Larry Restivo, Ron Miller, Bill Porter and Darryl Puzan, with 2 hits each by Frank Glauser, Mike Segal, Bob Johnson and sub Tom Boyce at first Base who also made 2 good defensive plays to end rallies. New player Mike  Segal had his first good day at bat and made a juggling act catch you had to see in right today as the Wildcats won their game today.

The Jays fell behind 9 - 4 but staged a late comeback scoring two runs in the 6th on a massive two run home run by Jack McNulty and then adding 4 runs in the top of the seventh with Augie Rosenblatt providing a key 3 run double.  With the score tied at 10 to 10 the Wildcats responded and won the game with a walkoff hit in the bottom of the 7th.  Offensive leaders for the Jays were Jack McNulty (home run), Jim O'Brien (double) and Ron Decker who all went 3 for 3.  Chipping in with 2 hits were Ken Mealey, Craig Neiderpruem, Tom Jakubowski and Tom Redding.
