Results for Tuesday's games

Wildcats 3 Lions 1

The pitching was excellent. The infield play was tight. The outfield, including Larry Landes making his debut in right center, played great. But the Lions locked horns with a very talented Puss N Boots Wildcat team, who  just played a better game giving the Lions their first loss by a 3 to 1 score. The Wildcats scored single runs in 2nd, 4th and 5th inning. The Lions countered with a run in the sixth. In the top of the seventh, the Lions had 2 on and no out. Credit to Al Avello who gave himself up to move the tying run into scoring position, but, we couldn’t pull this one out.  Best play of the day was a shot by Larry Landes to left center, which appeared to be a hit, but the other Larry (Restivo) grabbed it on one bounce and threw a bullet to 3rd for a force out.  Gary Bennett, Tracy Zimmerman and Tom Delaney had 2 hits.  Dale Cassidy was 1 for 2 with a walk.  Bob Gaines, Jim Stabene and Larry Landes each had a hit, although Larry was robbed of his 2nd hit.

In the 2 games between the Lions and the Wildcats a total of 10 runs have been scored.  Quite a battle!

Wolverines 15 Comets 6

The Comets spun a 2-0 celestial tail in the 1st inning, and it was 3-0 when the Wolverines' Charley Johnson walked and scored on hits by Frank Deon and Gene Harris in the 2nd. Jack McNulty did a terrific job subbing in left field, and led off the Wolverines' 5-run home 3rd with a walk (then a single in the 4th, and resounding triple in the 6th; and scored all three times). Second baseman Charley Johnson only had one "official" at bat and singled; but he walked twice, and scored on all three occasions, also.

A Premier pitching job by Tom Boyle, and superb fielding by the Wolverines' defense, held the Comets close to their orbit. Jeff Blatt's 3 for 4 day included a double and a Home Run drive to right filed that cleared the burgeoned bases in the 4th had all of us quickly back fielding. Dave Ortlip had a 4 for 4 day. Tom Boyle, Frank Deon, and Bill Matlack had two hits apiece. Each of the Wolverines' teammates contributed to an encouraging win. 

The Comets lost to the wolverines 15 to 6. Comets took a 3 to 1 lead in the third inning and then fell apart giving up 10 runs in the 3rd and 4th inning as the wolverines never looked back. Hitting stars for the Comets were Charlie Whitaker, Jerry Barsky, Billy Russell and Tom Boyce all getting 3 hits. Bob Silvester, John Tvarok, Wally Wasylak, Franklin Smith, and Jim Cro each had 2 hits. Aaron Oseroff and Jeff Blank chipped in with one hit. The Comets double A farm system has no players ready for the big show but our scouts are still looking.


Eagles 20 Panther 6

The Eagles started out early and scored often in a 20-6 win over the Panthers.  Gary Jones got the Eagles started with a two out double in the first inning that drove in two runs.  The Eagles were lead by Gary Jones with four hits including three extra base hits and drove in five RBI's.  Dave Courtright contributed four hits including a triple and a double with two RBI's.  Kevin Culp, Bill Kreiger, Howard Wible and John Soloman also had three hits a piece.  Kevin Culp itched well the entire game to secure our team the win.

The Panthers got hammered by a strong hitting Eagles team, 20-6.  Despite having an 18-hit game, the Panthers could not overcome their defensive miscues and well-placed hits by the Eagles.  Thanks to Ron Miller and Hal Katz for subbing.  Rich Pich led the team hitting going 4-4.  Vince Burkett, Jack Zupan, Carl Weigand, Pat O’Mara and Ron Miller had two hits each. 

Blue Jays 22 Devils 6

The Blue Jays bats came alive for the first time this season as every Jay contributed at least one hit in a 22 to 6 rout of the Devils.  The offense opened with a pair of Jacks.  Jack Donohue was 4 for 4 with a triple and 8 RBI's.  Jack McNulty was 2 for 2 with a triple, a double, 2 walks and 2 RBI's.  Tom Redding was 3 for 3 and Lee Bullman was 3 for 4.  Two hits each by Ken Mealey, Craig Neiderpruem (triple), Tom Jakubowski (double), and Ron Decker.  Ken Radon picked up a big 2 RBI single.  Somehow Jim O'Brien managed to go 1 for 1 with 3 RBI's.  Art Rosenblatt, Steve Bradley, and John Walsh added a hit each. Defensively the Jays played solid ball with 11 of their 13 players not falling over when balls were hit to them.  Craig Neiderpruem made an outstanding catch on what seemed to be a sure line drive hit and converted it into a double play.  On one of the defensive plays when Jack Donahue remained vertical he threw a runner out at third.
