After 4 weeks it seems that the teams are starting to come together with all games being very close and lots of fun.
In the first game of the night undefeated Rookies got all it could handle from the Snook Inn, winless but coming on strong,. After being ahead the entire game, The Snook mounted a 7th inning rally with hits from Lindsey Bott, Greg Curry, Anthony Palermo, Kristin Rotkvich and a HR from Damon Jobin and suddenly the game was tied 9 to 9.
But Rookies Sean Shea answered the call and with a hit to deep left field and a throwing error on the relay was able to score a HR to fight back the Snook challenge and remained unbeaten. Marc Canady and his son Casey Canady each had doubles for Rookies along with hits from Chris Bronson, Daphine and Ken Moss ,Roe Tamagani and Trina Canady.
Game two was also a close one, with Stan’s picking up where it left off the previous week and jumping out to a lead on Kretch’s. Stan’s bats stayed hot as Greg St Amour had 3 hits (2 triples,1 single) Brad Frazier’s 3 hits (double,2 singles)and Lee Vanderjagt (double) leading most of the game as well
Down 7 to 5 going into the 5th, Kretch’s played “small ball” with only one double coming from Joe Pitrone, but getting two hits from Julie Mana, Naomi Smith ,Dan Termini, Wes Smith and Jon Wright scored 5 runs in the top of the 5 to go ahead 10 to 7 and was able to hold on for the 12 to 9 victory.
