2) Clearly Moguls 7-3
3) McGrath's Irish Pub
4) Killington Meadows
5) Phat Italian
6) Outback Heavy Hitters
For the second Monday in a row at Bridgewater, there was an
extra innings game and the home team came out on top, once again.
The game between Clearly Moguls and the Phat Italian is another
candidate for Game Of The Year. Both teams were short-handed so
this was a 9-on-9 battle. Jack "Best Pitcher in the League" Blue
filling in the big shoes of Ronzoni, outdueled season veteran Matt
"Ajax" Anderson and picked up his first win. However, he was a bit
shaky at the start and walked in 3 runs.
The Phat Italian used his shaky start, a bunch of hits and a 3
run blast to Woodstock by Cam to build an 11-3 lead. Jack settled
down to deliver two "Cold Beer K's" to Loco and got some key
pop-ups. Clearly Moguls had a huge fourth inning rally where they
hit through their order and tied it 11-11.
It was a whole new ball game and Clearly Moguls was clearly
fired up. They shut down the Phat in the fifth with some great "D"
and kept the hit machine going to take their first lead of the game
Both teams went scoreless in the sixth but the Phat stormed back
in the seventh to tie it and send the game to extra innings.
Clearly Moguls shined on "D" once again and then in the bottom
of the eight they loaded the bases with one out and Scooter coming
to the plate. To make things interesting, Scooter suffered a huge
"CBK" to bring the Phat one out away from the ninth inning. Steve
"Working on the Railroad" Braunius who was 1 for 4 all game used
his keen eye to get the rare walk-off walk to bring in DJ Dave for
the winning run 15-14.
Stars of the game were: Will "The Thrill" Burdick who was 5 for
6 with 2 RBI and 3 runs scored and Jackie Blue who was 4 for 4 with
a walk, a good looking sac and 3 RBI.
The Phat Italian and Ajax shook off that devastating defeat to
beat the Heavy Hitters in their next game 14-6. The Heavy Hitters
also lost in blowout fashion to McGraths to start their week. The
Vermonsters had another close call but came out on top once again
to stay undefeated while they beat Killington Meadows 5-3.
