I have to say it again.. Man those were fun games.
Offense.. Game one. Russ, Derek, Seth, Jim, Pete, and Levi all had doubles. Bruce had a 2 run home run in the Fourth. Two, Derek and Seth hit in the park home runs in succession. Seth hit a triple; Bruce, Jack, EK, Adam all had doubles Jack hitting two. Doug had a bunt that he made it to first base on. Nice wheels Doug..
recap 1 We lead until the top of the seventh by 2 when they made a come back to lead by 1. Pete was lead off and got to first on a hit to left center. The call from the dugout was “YOUR SCORING ON A BASE HIT!” Jamie puts a hit to center field. Doug coaching third made a sign to stay as Pete blew by to score the tying run. Tied with winning run on first,two outs and four batters later Jamie is on third. Josh a “newbie” to the team comes through with a nice shot in the gap to score the winning run.
Game 1 highlights.. All DEFENSE.. The infielders made it easy for the outfielders making great plays on groundballs and line drives. Jim (hoover @3) made an awesome catch at third. Derek cleanly fielded a ground making the throw to first with style, he also defied gravity floating three feet in the air to catch a line drive over his head. EK (pitching) with cat like reflexes caught one hit hard up the middle, and Willie fielded a ball off the plate making a force at first by beating the runner.
Game 2 Highlights.. Defensive plays.. (Tell you the truth I don’t remember alot about the defense of this game.) Hoover pitched a couple of innings this game dropping balls in for strikes, he also made a great catch on a line drive. Derek at short made a force at second on a bad flip were he once again defied gravity and the laws of physics by stopping his forward motion in air to stretch his foot back to make the tag.
