Classics 5 Flames 4

The Flames scored one run in each of the first two innings to lead 2-0. Then The Classics came back to score three runs in the 3rd innings to go ahead 3-2 and two more in the 4th inning to add onto the lead 5-2. The Flames scored one run in the bottom of the 6th for a 5-3 score. The Flames then came back in the bottom of the 7th with one run to make the score 5-4 with the Classics leading. But the Flames then loaded the bases with one out. With bases loaded there was a hard hit ball to shortstop Andy Markowitz who tagged out a player from second going to third and threw the ball to second for a double play. What a game ending play! The Classics won the game 5-4.
Hitting highlights: Paul Stetsko and John Breig with two hits each. Ken Mealey, Tony Baccari (Home run), Eric Gottlieb, Ron Cohen and Fred Eberhardt all contributed with one hit each.

The Flames were extinguished by the Classics 5-4 in a game well played by both teams.  The new major league pitch clock seemed to be effective in this game as the game ended at 10:34AM with Tom Boyle (for the Classics) and Derek Foster (for the Flames) both pitching good games.  The Flames had the bases loaded with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning down one run.  Carl Weigand smoked a ball but it was right at Classic shortstop Andy Markowitz for a game-ending double play.  A few feet either way may have won the game. Tom Cosgrove had three hits including the weakest hit ever seen in the Bucks County Senior League when he swung too early and hit the ball off the end of the bat with the ball spinning to a stop on the chalk about eight feet away from home plate.  At indoor practice, it would have been a "do over".  Kevin Grevera and Ken Radon had two hits each.  Carl Weigand made a nice catch on a drive to deep right by Tony Baccari (and I won't mention that Carl fell down).

Wolfpack 6 Panthers 4

The game was a hard fought victory by the Wolfpack, who had timely clutch hitting and excellent play in the field. The Panthers scored an unearned run in the second inning to take a 1 - 0 lead, but in the fourth inning the Pack scored 3 runs with a long hit triple by Dick Tosti. The Panthers answered in the bottom six with two runs tying the contest, but in the top of the seventh it was Phil D'Angiolini's turn and he hit a "frozen rope" triple to Right Center field scoring two runs. Even being hobbled by a bad hamstring, Keith Klasic smashed a key hit for the third run of the inning. From there the tight Wolfpack defense held the Panthers to one run in the seventh to win the game 6-4. Adding to the Wolfpack offense was Tracey Zimmerman and Ron Mangini each with two hits. Wayne Heaton pitched a great game despite walking a Panther player who shall remain nameless. The Wolfpack is now showing it's FANG'S.

Quiet bats and a couple of defensive miscues resulted in a Panthers loss to a very good Wolfpack team.  The Panthers scored first and held a 1-0 lead for three innings when the Wolfpack put up 3 runs to take the lead.  The Panthers scrambled back scoring 2 runs in the 6th inning to tie the game.  The Wolfpack outscored the Panthers 3 to 1 in the 7th inning to win 6-4.  The Panthers managed only 9 hits in the game.  Joe Grines and Howard Wible led the team with 2 hits each.  Bill Matlack went 1-2 with a gapper double.

Eagles 21 Devils 9

The Eagles and the Devils competed in an offensive slugfest that was very close after four innings with the Eagles ahead 11 to 9. The Eagles were able to score ten additional runs in the last three innings to come out on top 21 to 9.

Each Eagle player had at least two hits during the game.  The Eagles were led by pitcher Barry Windsor who had five hits.  Mike Kroger, Dave Detwiler and Tom Henritzy each had four hits a piece.  Doug Rutter, Judy Agasar, Bill Howland and Ed Brandriff each had three hits.  John Walsh, Rich Dickerson, Andy Cohen and Bob Esterly each had two hits a piece.

Barry Windsor pitched well and made some nice defensive plays.  Also playing well defensively were Mike Kroger, Andy Cohen, Dave Detwiler and John Walsh.

For what it's worth the Devils tried but came up short again. The evil geniuses are trying to figure out how to configure their defense, as we have been making too many errors on the field.  The Devils led in the 4th inning by a score of 5-3 but then..
The Eagles started hitting and we did not…… nothing to add except we lost our best player with a pulled hamstring.  It seemed like everyone on the Eagles was getting hits, whether they were bloopers or line drives.  The Devils stopped scoring in the 4th…….and they did not..

Blue Jays 12 Wildcats 4

Once again the Blue Jays played steady defense holding their opponent at 4 runs or less in 3 of their 4 games thus far.  The defense was an entire team effort and everyone played well.  Offensively the Jays failed to score in the first inning but then applied steady pressure to score in each of the next 5 innings.  Tom Sikora (3 for 3), Fred Weiner (3 for 3) and Jim O'Brien (3 for 3, 3 runs, 2 triples) led the birds attack.  Scott Comer (double), Jeff Blank, Warren Fuchs and Bob Doernberg chipped in with 2 hits each.  The Jays won their fourth game in a row surpassing last season when they did not win their fourth game until August 1.

Franklin Smith had a 3 for 3 day and led the Wildcats to a third straight loss by a 12-4 score.  A 2 hit day for Monroe Weingarten, Charley Whittaker, George Groves  and Bob Sylvester but the rest of us did not respond well.  Loose play and weak hitting set the day for another Wildcat loss.The Blue Jays played steady defense and sent the Wildcats home with a 12-4 ugly loss.
