Classics 10 Panthers 9

The Classics came out hitting the ball in the first inning scoring three runs, two more runs in the 3rd, five runs in the 5th for a ten run game. The Panthers were held to three runs til the 5th inning and had a six run rally in the 6th but the Classics held off the Panthers in the top of the seven inning for a Classic 10-9 win.This was a total team Classics win.

The Panthers dropped a close game to the Classics by a score of 10-9.  The Classics played a good game and put up runs in bunches including a 5 run fifth inning.  The Panthers hit the ball hard but seemed to hit it right at a defender.  We couldn't find the holes.  Still the Panthers chipped away at the deficit finishing with a 6 run sixth inning.  However that was the end of the scoring and the Panthers were 2 runs short of victory.  John Mack and Howard Wible led the team in hitting both going 3-4.  John Rozzalis went 2-4 with a double. 

Starr 15 Devils 10

Starr vs Devils score today. Starr started out, scoring 5 runs without an out; the 5 runs in the bottom of the first gave them a 5 to 2 lead. In the second inning Starr scored 2 more runs and added 3 in the third to take a 10 to 9 lead after 4. Starr then went on to yield 1 run for the last three innings to prevail 15 to ten.  Aided by some great defense, Larry Levin threw out the tying run in the top of the fifth to end a big inning. Winning pitcher Bill Schwartz did not walk a batter and had a perfect 4 for 4 at the plate. Offense was great with Terry Klein, Bill Schwartz, Spencer Synderman, and Lee Bulkman all going 4 for 4. Lee Bullman had 5 RBIS.  Chipping in with 3 hits were Jay Passman, and Alan Massey. Also 2 hits by Harris Braunstein, Vince Burkett, Jack Donohue and Larry Levin. Both pitchers today issued no walks.

The Devils fell to Starr by a score of 15 to 10.  Defensive lapses throughout determined the outcome of the game but the Devil's offense was frequently on the attack.  The Devil offense was led by Gene Reeber (3-4), Kevin Culp (3-4), Tom Reither went 4-4 with a long drive that hit the top of the left field fence and bounced back in for a triple, Dave Simone (4-4) and Ken Riess (4-4).

Blue Jays 4 Eagles 1

In the battle of the undefeated birds the Eagles hosted the Blue Jays in a very well played low scoring game.  The Eagles picked up a run in the first inning to jump out to a lead.  That lead held up until the Blue Jays picked up two runs in the fourth inning after a single by Del Kates, an RBI double by Jack McNulty and singles by Bob Dolan and Jim O'Brien.  The 2 to 1 score held until the seventh inning when the bluebirds struck again for 2 runs after a leadoff single by Jack McNulty, a double by Fred Weiner and a 2 RBI double by Bob Dolan.  The Eagles threatened to score with two outs in the bottom of the seventh but their threat ended when a hard hit ground ball bounced off the first base bag. Mark "Whitey" Jerden made a great reaction play to reach back, snag the ball out of the air and beat the runner to the bag to end the game. 

Jack McNulty led the Jays going 3 for 3 with a double and two runs scored all while playing great defense.  Bob Dolan and Del Kates chipped in with 2 hits each.

The Eagles started out okay by scoring one run by Ed Brandriff but we did not come close to scoring again as the Blue Jays won 4-1 in a well-played, entertaining game.  The Eagles managed only eight hits the entire game and were thwarted by the Blue Jays good defense.  Ted Henritzy had three hits and Ed Brandriff had two hits.  Barry Windsor pitched a good game for our squad.  The Eagles could not keep up with the Blue Jays as our defense made several mistakes allowing runs to score.

Wolfpack 10 Wildcats 7

The Wolfpack, hungry for their first win, pounced on the Wildcats in the first inning scoring 2 runs. The "Pack" then added 2 runs in the third and another in the 4th. Great defensive plays were then turned in by every Wolfpack player creating 4 "Double Plays" in 7 innings. The Wildcats were shutout until the 4th inning when they battled back with 5 runs tying the game at 5 to 5, but in the 6th inning the vicious "Pack" offense attacked with 5 runs without making an out. The hitting attack was led by "Old Reliable" Bob Gaines with 3 hits , including a clutch 3 run Homer. Also starring with 3 hits was Craig Niederpruem and Tracey Zimmerman. Supporting the hitting attack was Jim Stabene, Curtis Bragg and Ron Mangini each with 2 hits.
Jack Galloway and Dick Tosti each had RBIs. The tight Wolfpack defense shut down a Wildcats rally in the 7th inning to capture a 10-7 victory.

The Wolfpack scouts kept the Wildcats away with a grand slam from Bob Gaines in the bottom of the 6th inning after the cats scored a fiver themselves. Bob's shot was short hopped and not even slowed down on its way to the fence to provide a hard earned first win this year.  The Wildcats had produced a fiver in the top 6th to take a 5 run lead only to watch and cry as the drive skidded past the defender on its journey to the fence and bring a hard earned first victory to the Wolves.  Good defense by the Wolfpack had kept the Wildcats scoreless until the 6th and also in their part of the 7th.  3 hits from George Groves and Tom Boyce were the only high spots for the Cats today. 2 hits each from Larry Restivo and Franklin Smith
were the only other bright spots from the Wildcats today.
