In a well played defensive, back and forth game at Alga today PG finally came out on top of CBI by a score of 15 to 14. Both teams were shorthanded, and CBI thanks Randy Benge for filling in admirably at shortstop, and PG thanks CBI for loaning a catcher each inning. The game started out with neither team scoring in the 1st. Then CBI scored 5 in the 3rd to take the lead that they would hold until PG scored 5 in the 7th. CBI scored 4 in the top of the 8th to tie the game at 13 all. With the bottom of their lineup up in the top of the 9th, CBI took a one run lead, but PG came back with two runs in the bottom half for the final score of 15 to 14. For CBI Tony Sando cracked two homers and Rick Skidmore went 4 for 4. For PG Kevin Armentano was 5 for 5, Jesse Jackson was 4 for 5 with a homer. and the player of the game was Jerry Galiley 4 for 5 with two homers and the game winning hit in the 9th inning. Ron Silverman played a great Rover making several nice catches and starting two crucial double plays
In this hard-fought game there was only one winner. But both teams played very well throughout the game. TPP dominated the score throughout the game with some fine defense and hitting. Not to be outdone however, the DR worked hard to win; it wasn’t until the bottom of the ninth inning when the final outcome was ultimately decided. For the most part, inning by inning TPP maintained the lead in the game. Going into the bottom of the ninth inning (DR was home team), the score was 8 – 5 in favor of TPP. But three singles by The Draft put runners on all three bases. Rick Shaw came up to bat and slugged a long single to drive in the catch-up runs bringing the score to a tie at 8 - 8. Gene LaChimia slugged a game-ending double hugging the third base line allowing Rick Shaw to score from first base for the win. TPP offense was highlighted by Barry Anderson and Scott Tatum home runs. Jonathan Brand hit 4/4 at the plate. For DR, at the direction of his dugout, Rick Shaw slugged a timely home run to left-center field to move the DR ahead in their only [go ahead] inning prior to the bottom of the ninth. Dave Grull, Bill Garner, Rick Shaw and Gary Soper hit three for four.
Solana Spa took an early 3-0 lead after one inning before Village Pie answered with 5 in the 2nd. VPS never trailed again as they built a 22-9 lead entering Solana Spa's final at bat. SS refused to go down without a fight scoring 7 in the bottom of the ninth, but the lead was too much to overcome. For VPS, Oscar Lara was 5 for 5, Marlon Moore homered, Mark Forster had two doubles and a triple,and Ruby Murphy was 3 for 5 scoring three runs with excellent base running. Richard Keefer and David Bosque led the Spa going 5 for 5. David Ward and T-Bone hit back to back home runs.
It was a welcoming party for Pizza Port Brewery. They welcomed back Max Isbell from a season long injury. And they welcomed new players Russ Roopanian and Jim Giovinzano. With not having played in months, they all made significant contributions. Especially the two new players, who were a combined 9 for 10. And with ace hurler Hugh O'Neill coming up ill, Russ was pressed in too "toe the rubber". And he was masterful, shutting out Nuccis from the 2nd until the 8th inning. Also contributing offensively for Pizza Port were Dave Irwine and Gary McBride with 4 hits each. Eddie Gillette, Bob Blakely, Rony Lewis, Mike Weinrich and Tom Winterborne each had three hits. Gillette made a circus catch, robbing Leigh Peterson of extra bases. It wasn't the catch that was so special, but the glove he used. You see Ron Cipriano, who recently passed away, had given that glove to Gillette a couple of years back. Broke it out and dusted off the cobwebs. Kinda hope Ron is somewhere smiling and saying, "probably couldn't of caught that ball, without that glove". Thanks Ron!!!
