Devils 12 Panthers 6

Woohoo.  The Devils won our first game of the season today..
Kevin Culp pitched a great game and went 3-4.  Ken Reiss went 3-4 while Paul Martinelli, Jerry Barlow, and Frank Froio all went 2-4.  Dave Frayne went 2-3.
Defense was solid today and that made the difference…..

The Panthers dropped a tough game to the Devils today by a score of 12.- 6.  The Panthers took an early lead in the 2nd inning only to be tied up in the 3rd inning.   A 3 run 4th inning put the Panthers up by 1 run once again.  The Devils scored 2 runs to the Panthers 1 in the 5th inning to leave the score tied at 5 - 5.  It was all over for the Panthers after that.  The Devils put up 3 runs in the 6th and 4 in the 7th to put the game away for good.  The Panthers again suffered from weak batting and too many defensive mistakes.  Offensively Ed Occhi went 3 for 3, Gary Jones and Ed Betancourt both went 2 for 3.  Joe Grines and John Mack each contributed doubles.

Wolfpack 15 Classics 12

The Wolfpack clawed the Classics in a hard fought game winning 15-12. The "Pack jumped out to a 7-2 lead by the second inning but was then shut down until the fifth when they scored another 2 runs making it 9-4 for the Wolfpack. The Classics charged back with an additional 2 runs in the sixth, making the score 9-6. But the Wolfpack exploded with six additional runs in the final two innings. Shoddy defense by the "Pack" in the bottom of the seventh allowed the Classics to score 6 runs but held on for 15-12 victory. Wolfpack hitting attack was led by
Phil Angiolini with 4 hits including a clutch double and his second booming Home Run of the year. Jack Galloway had 2 hits and bashed a key triple in the sixth inning that was key to the Wolfpack rally. Wayne Heaton not only pitched a great game but contributed with 3 hits. Also aiding the offensive attack was Tracey Zimmerman, Ron Mangini, Bob Gaines and Jim Stabene with two hits each. The Wolfpack made key defensive plays in the second, fourth and fifth innings to keep the Classics at bay. It was a well earned victory for the Wolfpack with excellent play across the entire team.

This was not the best game the Classics put together. Our pitching and defense was not as good as the team could play. The hitting was lead by Tony Baccari with four hits, Ken Mealey, Ron Cohen, Andy Markowitz each had three hits each and Tom Jakubowski and John Breig with two hits each. The Classics did not give up going into the seventh down 15 to 6 and had a good seventh inning with six runs but fell short losing 15-12.

Flames 4 Blue Jays 3

The Flames defeated the Blue Jays 4-3 in a hard fought well-played close game.  In the bottom of the 5th inning the Flames actually scored more than 1 run for the first time since the top of the first inning of game 2 with a walloping 2 runs!  The Flames victory was greatly due to stellar defensive play from third baseman Frank Glauser.  Frank's glove was smoking! Among his outstanding plays was a low backhand line drive snared 6 inches off the ground with two outs and the bases loaded.  It was suggested that Frank change his number from 7 to 5 (in honor of Brooks Robinson's similar defense).  When Manager Tom Cosgrove found out how much a replacement uniform jersey would cost, he decided to bring black tape to the next game to add -2 after the seven on both the front and back of Frank's jersey!  Nine Flames had hits including two each from Kevin Grevera and Tom Cosgrove.  In such a close game, every run was crucial.  The Flames runs came from clutch RBI's by Norm Derry, Ron Tuminski, John Salmon, and Gene Corrado.

The Blue Jays defense was once again solid with outstanding play by Jack McNulty and Scott Comer but the few mistakes that the team did make all went directly to the Flames scoreboard.  Offensively the Jays could only muster 9 hits with Jim Klemick leading the offense with 2 hits (triple) and 2 runs scored. Scott Comer and Jim O'Brien added 2 hits each, while Jack McNulty and Tom Sikora both doubled.  The game turned to the Flames after a what appeared to be a booming RBI double turned into an inning ending out when Fred was ruled out for missing a base.

Starr 7 Wildcats 1

Game today Starr vs Wildcats.  Wildcats drew 1st blood, scoring the first run in the bottom of the 3rd for a 1 to 0 lead. Starr answered with 3 in top of the 4th and never looked back as they scored again in the 6th and 7th for a winning score of 7 to 1. Bill Schwartz pitched a gem for Starr and the defense for Starr made no errors. Offensively Larry Levin led the team going 3 for 3. Chipping in with 2 hits were Terry  Abrams,Lee Bullman, and Vince Burkett. Starr played small ball today, recording 14 hits, all singles.

The Wildcats could score only 1 run today as the Stars defense was almost perfect in their game today. A steady attack in 3 innings led the Stars to well earned 7 to 1 drubbing of the Wildcats today.  The Wildcats played much better defense against a steady attack making the Starr appear as a team that has been playing together forever.  Wildcats today played their best game although 3 promising innings ended by double plays to kill potential Wildcat rallies.  Charlie Whittaker and Larry Restivo had 2 hits to spark the offense but double plays ended most chances.
