Here are the Results/Recap for the weekend 6/22 & 6/23:
In Saturday's games, both were close contests. In the early game, Action took a 10 run lead into the fifth inning only to see a pesky Lia Group battle back and come within 2 before bowing 15-13. Lia left the bases loaded in the 6th and 7th as Action desperately hung on for the win. Art Wise was the winning pitcher, hanging on to win despite spraining both wrists. In the later game, Kim Burns bested Bill Kosefsky as Legion outlasted ROMO'S PIZZA 14-11. Highlight of the game was a monster 2 run home run by Bert Cromling, overshadowing a 2 run shot by Bill Hickey for ROMO's.
In Sunday's games, Action had to forfeit to ROMO'S PIZZA as several more of their players were out due to injuries from Saturday's game. Meanwhile over at Harriet Myers, Gally's bested Legion in our version of a pitching duel, 9-4. Rusty Gallagher was the winning pitcher over Kim Burns.
Play of the Day goes to Rick Knipper for his snaring of a low line drive to his right and tossing a bullet to first to catch the runner for a double play. Honorable mention goes to Ralph Scunziano for his sliding basket catch in short center. Circus catch of the day goes to Mike McGlynn (who else?) for his great catch of pop foul while falling on his posterior.
