Week 8 RECAP

Sat, Jun 11, 2016



Field #1: St. Anselm @ AT All Stars 

(St. A 8 / AT 3)


Field #2: Gibson @ Black Betty 

(Gibson 11 / Betty 17)



Field #1: R Bar @ Turkey’s Teachers (Grambo)

Turkey’s Nest Teachers came out Sunday ready to play–but unfortunately for them, so did the defending champs.  R-bar, to quote our man Haz, ‘kicked ass early…often and throughout the game.” Spoiler alert–the score was 30-3–TNT had strong performances from Jackie “Welcome Back” Cotter and newbie Shayla, but that was about it.  Combine the anemic offense with a reportedly way-too-stingy strike-zone and it spelled disaster for our Styrofoam beer loving educators.

As for R-bar, they put on a clinic of how to dismantle a team–after three in the first, they batted around in the second–plating nine runs on the “strength” of four walks.  Haha just kidding–they did get four walks–but John Rocchio hit the first of his three (3!!) homers and Richie Formato blasted a huge double–by the end of the fifth, it was 19-0, with another John Roccio HR–this one was a grand salami–he ended up with eight RBI on the day.  So the game was pretty much over–Bobby Knapp dinged ’em for five hits on the day and the R-Bar got a huge pick-up from Chico Rodriguez off the bench with three hits

Something to be aware of guys, especially our right fielders:  Over there on field one it’s pretty easy to have to go on the concrete–and it can be very slippery with cleats on. Mickey Rosegrady slipped and busted his head–they say he got a pretty nasty concussion–so keep your thoughts with him and for god’s sake be careful out there.

Field #2: SoftSpot Runaways @ Loggers (The Heitcz) 

The Loggers came into this game on a 2 game win streak, hungry to make it three. The Runaways started off the game plating two runs to lead off the first. The Loggers answered right back adding two runs, to tie the game. This back and forth would be the theme of the game in the early innings.

Soft Spot added another run in the 2nd, while the Loggers added 2 more run on a single by Nelson Nunez . The top of the Runaways lineup ( Ian, Jason & Hasky?) would set the table and score three runs in top of the third to take a 6-4 lead. The loggers yet again answered right back added two more runs on back to back Sac flys.  Both teams would take the 4th inning off from scoring, but the Runaways were back at it adding a run in the 5th to take the lead at 7-6.  The Loggers were not done yet putting up a 2 spot on a sac fly by Dan Sykes and a single by Jay Mort to take an 8-7 lead.

Unfortunately for the Loggers that would be the last time they crossed the plate.  Caesar settled down on the mound to shutout the Loggers bats. The Runaways would runaway with the rest of the game thanks to a huge 3 run home run by Salvio.  Soft Spot would take the game 12-8.  Showing grace in defeat the Loggers invited the Runaways back to Over the Eight to partake in Venezuelan Hot Dogs, Cesear had many. For the Loggers Craig H added a HR and 3 RBi, Kristen P had 2 runs scored and Nelson had 2 RBIs.

Field #1: Clemerica @ 3 Kings (Nat the Bat)

Being at a lack for words is not something you hear me say often.  In fact, I normally have TOO much to say.  Yes, I can be long winded. Yes, I like to romanticize and add lots of color to my recaps.  Yes, I post too many team pics to Facebook.  Deal with it people. Well, this week is different.  This week Clemerica took on the “beloved” Three Kings and things did not go well for the good guys.  This week, I left the game with the word “STRYK-AH” (pronounced STRIKE-AHH) being played on repeat, piercing in my head.  Needless to say, this game was just a bunch of bologna.

There has always been a “jovial” rivalry between the Battleship and our tattooed foes, the 3 Kings, but somehow we fell flat and did no’t have enough wind behind our sails.  In short, there was a lot of chatter and chirping coming from the third base dugout, so much that even Erik, our lovely photographer, was vexed.  Looking past all the noisy squawking going on, 3 Kings did what they do (second) best and put their bats to work and took an early lead.  Battleship fought to stay in the game but was unable to take the lead at any point.  Final score was 16-12. It was a disappointing loss for Clemerica, but it didn’t prevent us from enjoying post game BBQ back at Clem’s (even though we had definitely had more than enough BOLOGNA during the game).
Next week 3 Kings faces off with Spike Hill and the Gibson.  Spike Hill will be coming off their first loss, and Gibson will be looking to get their first win. Clemerica will face the undefeated Black Betty which should be a good, clean, and competitive match up.  The big question is…who are you going to cheer for Jill Grosso? Where do your loyalties really lie?  I know you’ve got a shiny new ring and all, but does that trump the bonds of rock, paper, scissor (squared)?
I will now leave you all with a little PSA.  Please be kind to your opponents and the lovely women of the WSL.  Without us, there would be no co-ed WSL, and not gonna lie, we kinda class this joint up. There are rules for a reason, and one rule in particular I would like you all to take note of: Avoiding collisions at home plate is MANDATORY. Be kind (and overall just be SMART), and SLIDE when there is a play at the plate. Thanks.

Field #2: Spike Hill @ Turkey’s Nest 

(Spike Hill 7 / St. A 12)



Field #1: Gutter 86ers @ Bedford Yetis (Writer Formerly Known As…)

A tale of two teams on divergent paths.  The 86ers have, to put it lightly, struggled in 2016.  They have only 2 victories under their belt thus far, which were recorded over teams with a combined record of 1-13.  They have been mostly competitive on their current 3 game losing streak, as they looked to right the ship against the Yetis on Sunday.  Winston, conversely, has his squad playing some inspired ball.  They have scraped and clawed their way to a .500 record this season and all but 1 of their contests have been decided by 4 or less runs.

Scoring was pretty slow in the early innings. The Gutter as able to capitalize on some early errors, while the Yetis were powered by homers from Dave Secia and Steph.  The Yetis would take a 4-2 lead into the bottom half of the 5th inning, when they would take advantage of 4 walks and turn them into 7 runs…on only 3 hits!  Brandon would deliver the final blow of the inning, crushing a 2 run blast as the highlight of his perfect 4 hit day.

The 86ers were then staring down an 11-2 deficit after 5.  Pack it up and go home, right?  Wrong!  Buttah’s squad would not go down quietly, as they stepped up to the plate in the 6th.  The first 4 batters of the frame would score, en route to a 5 run rally to put them right back in the game!  With the drama heightened and the bats perked up, the 86ers would threaten again in the 7th.  Bases were loaded with 1 out, when Dave would twist a double play from SS to squash the Gutter’s hopes for a comeback.

The score would end at 12-8, with the Yetis moving to a solid 4-3 record on the year.  The 86ers losing streak slides to 4 and they are not looking anything like that 13 win squad from 2015.  While there are no “gimmes” in the WSL, the Gutter faces off with a winless Gibson squad next.  They will look to bring back some respectability to the anemic Godsy North division.  Yetis get a rough doubleheader against the Nest and the Betties after Memorial Day.  Can they rise up and really make some noise or continue to tread water all season?  It’s a tall order, but a split would be huge for them.

(86ers 8 / Yetis 12)


Field #2: Roebling Sports Club @ Kilo Bravo (Clinchy)

Both teams were missing key players but RSC was very amped to get a win under their belt and what better team to do it from than the 3rd ranked team in the league!

RSC got out to a quick lead with 3 runs in the first. Both Ope and Sean had doubles. Kilo answered back with 2 in the bottom of the inning. A lot of hitting in the 2nd, which tied the score 8-8. In the 3rd inning, star SS Ope, got injured, and that was a huge blow to RSC. Shawn stepped in to play SS the rest of the game.

From this point out, RSC played 3 girls in the field and didn’t have either of our starting pitchers. Shawn started for RSC, then new guy Dave pitched 2 innings (his softball pitching debut), and then Babkow came in and played excellent defense, throwing lots of strikes from the 4th inning out.

Going into the bottom of the 8th inning, RSC were only down by 1. Kilo was getting nervous. RSC just needed a few clutch plays and they would have gotten out of the inning giving up only 1 or 2 runs but they made a few bad throws and missed a few tough plays which ended up in a 7 run Kilo inning

(RSC 13 / Kilo 21)
