July 22 Highlights

ANDY & BARNEY'S (7) - GLASS CITY Investigations (0) (f): Andy & Barneys Sports Bar - Glass City failed to field a team, losing on a forfeit 7-0.

Freedom Machinery F&M (14) - THE RETIREMENT GUYS (11):
Freedom Machinery came away with a 14 to 11 victory in eight innings over the Retirement Guys last night. Great defense along with some clutch hitting led to a hard-fought victory over a very good team. Jay Schramm was supreme as a pool player going 4/5 including a OTF hr. BTW Jay is 20 out of his last 21 at bats...AWESOME! All the players on the team hit very well and I am very proud of them. Thanks also for Roger stepping up as a pool player to help round things off.

WHEELOCK PHARMACY (21) - Joel Hansen STATE FARM (13): Wheelock Pharmacy took a 2--1 lead after the first inning against State Farm and never relinquished it en route to a 21-13 victory. State Farm tallied 7 runs in the 6th inning to close the gap to 3 runs, but Wheelock added 5 in the 7th while shutting out State Farm in the last of the seventh to hang on for the win.
Joel Hansen State Farm - The Farmers put on a surge in the sixth inning with a 7 spot to get within 3 runs but fell short as Wheelock put up 5 more in the 7th. State Farm was again led by Al Seeger 4/4, John Brubaker, Bob Briggs and sub Bill Bray all ¾ and five teammates 2/4. Thanks to Bill Bray and Jim Benore for being pool play support for the Farm team both games on this evening.

SHAWN'S IRISH TAVERN (12) - HARVARD BARBER SHOP (8):
Shawn's pulled out another late inning victory over Harvard Barbershop by scoring 5 runs in the top of the seventh and then holding off Harvard's bats to pick up the win by a 12-8 score. It was a pitcher's duel as the score was knotted at 7 after 5 innings and a scoreless 6th led up to the decisive 7th. Rob Ravin had his first inside the park homer ever to cap the 5 run last inning rally. Jim Dandar went 4-4, Larry Gagin 2-2; Jim Dunlavy and Rob Ravin 3-4; John Johnson 2-3 (after hitting 1.000 the last 3 games) as did Chuck Strzesynski. Rick Schmidt had 2 hits and had a couple of great snags at first, the last gem getting the final out. Another team effort.
Harvard, in a back and forth game, were tied at 7 after 6 innings. Shawn's put up a 5 spot in top of the 7th and we could only muster 1 in the bottom to lose to Shawn's 12 -8. Led in hitting by Ashman 2/3,1 double and an OTF HR plus 4 RBI's. Nickelsen, Brownfield, and Wisenewski all were 2/3, Wisenewski also recorded a triple.

Joel Hansen STATE FARM (25) - THE RETIREMENT GUYS (19): Joel Hansen State Farm - In the nightcap the Farmers pounded out 27 hits and were able to hold off a game Retirement Guys team. Leading the way for the Farm was Bob Briggs 4/4 (7/8 on the night), Al Seeger 3/3 (7/7 on the night), Roger Smith 4/4, Jim Benore 4/4, with Bill Bray and Dale Knepper each ¾. It is very inspiring to watch as many of my teammates and opponents come to the park each game night and are willing to go through a lot of pain in order to keep playing this game that they love and enjoy. It is very evident that playing is winning for our group.

SHAWN'S IRISH TAVERN (10) - WHEELOCK PHARMACY (9):
Shawn's once again waited until the late innings to snatch a victory over a spirited Wheelock team 10-9. Down by 4 runs going into the bottom of the 6th, Dwaine Nemire started the 5 run rally by ripping an inside the park homer to left. A few singles set the stage for Larry Gagin's bases clearing triple and John Johnson drove in the 5th run. The inning was kept alive by 2 hitters getting their only hits of the game, but they came at a crucial time. Ahead by one, Shawn's defense earned their salaries as Jim Dunlavy ran down a tricky fly to right center for the first out. A grounder up the middle was deflected by Chuck Strzesynski, and picked up by the shortstop who just barely beat the runner at 1st for the second out. A knuckling line drive caught by Jim Dandar at short ended the nail biter game. Don Dheel was perfect at the plate going 3-3 plus turning a couple of double plays. Dunlavy and Gagin were 3-4, Schmidt, Ravin and Nemire 2-3. Everyone contributed in their own way for another team effort.
Wheelock Pharmacy - In the 2nd game, it was deja vu all over again. For the 3rd time this season, Wheelock came up short by one run versus Shawns. Final score was 10-9. Both teams played well defensively. Special kudos to Wheelock shortstop, Ron Callison, just off the DL for an excellent job and to Rick Stager, who made a stellar play in left center, taking an extra base hit away from Billy Baldwin.

ANDY & BARNEY'S (19) - HARVARD BARBER SHOP (6):
Andy & Barneys Sports Bar - The two best teams in the West Division paired off, with Andy & Barney's coming out on top 19-5. A&B sits atop the West Division with a 12-3 record. A&B's batted first, and the team was off and running scoring 5 in the 1st., 2nd, and 3rd innings. Harvard scored four runs in the bottom of first, with the big blow being a HR by Dave Ashman. A&B's squad settled down and allowed only one more run. Again, defense, stellar pitching and speed was the difference. Tim Kuszmaul was 4/4, with two doubles. Dann Schlembaker was 3/4 and Jon Labeau 3/4 with ITPHR. Roy Woodworth and Bill Garber collected two hits each.
Harvard - The barbers lost to a very good A&B team 19-6. Jerry Keefe kept our bats silent after the first inning when responded to their 5 runs with 4 of our own. After spotting A&B 15 runs in the first 3 innings, a pitching change was in order. Gary Meyer came in with his blazing fast ball (haha) and allowed only 4 more in the next 3. Led in hitting again by Ashman with 1 double and an OTF HR and 3 RBI's. Yocum went 3/3, Nickelsen, Brownfield, Smith and Anderson all went 2/3. Only 1 more game
to go, let's go into the tourney on a winning note guys.

Freedom Machinery F&M (7) - GLASS CITY Investigations (0) (f): The game was forfeited due to lack of players by the Investigators.

ROOSTERS (12) - FRICKER'S 12 (7): FRICKER'S 12 managed only 12 hits and lost 12-7 to Roosters, for the second time this season. Dave Obert had three hits and Dave Brownfield two.


FRICKER'S 2 (18) - ST. CLARE COMMONS (17): Frickers 2 put up 5 runs in three of the first four innings last night and held on to beat St Clare Commons 18-17. Mike Sanders went 3-3 and hit an OTF home run. John Brubaker had an OTF home run to lead of the second inning. Jeff Wagenhauser went 3-4. Bill Wiseman, Cary Weaver, Jeff Gorney, Jerry Edmundson, Ron Jones and Rick Doran each chipped in with two hits for Frickers who improved their record to 7-2 for the season.


FRICKER'S 10 (15) - BARROW'S JEWELERS (13): Frickers#10 - All of Frickers players had at least 1 hit. Rick Hendee had an OTFHR in the 5 run 5th inning. Rick Hendee and Buddy Blanke had 2 nice running catches to stop the Jewlers rallies.
Barrows played a tough hitting Frickers White last nite and came out on the short end by a score of 15 to 13. Pool player Patrick Henry helped out with some fine defense at shortstop and had OTFHR and ITPHR. In the sixth Tom Duhart and Jay Schramm went back to back with OTFHR's followed by the inside the park by Henry. Ed Blankenship had a OTFHR and a triple. Terry Finch and Dave Ashman added a couple hits. Great effort by all the players just came up a little short defensively.


FRICKER'S 1 (21) - ALLSHRED SERVICES (20): Frickers #1 - A game that saw the lead change several times, before being settled in the last inning. Allshred opened up a 10 - 2 lead, but then fell behind 12 - 10 after four innings. The game was tied after five innings, and the Shredders then opened up a five run lead going into the bottom of the seventh. Frickers #1 was not to be denied, and rattled off seven hits to score five runs to tie the game and scored the winner on a fielders choice. #1 was led by Randy Rydman who was 4 for 5, 3 RBI. Randy McGraw 4 for 5, 4 RBI, Dan Helvey 3 for 4, 3RBI and M. Czerniakowski 3 for 4.
AllShred Services - Frickers 1 came back with 6 runs in the bottom of the 7th inning to defeat Allshred 21-20. Allshred continued to hit the ball very well collecting 31 total hits. Bob Miller went 4 for 4 while Steve Higgins, Rob Boehme, Gary Walton, Daryl Rodney, Matt Edinger, and Don Dheel all went 3 for 4. Steve Higgins, Rob Boehme, and Bob Hoffman each hit an OTF home run.


SCHNEIDER SONS' ELEC (15) - FRICKER'S 3 (14): WOW! What a game. Schneider Sons' Electric took their 5 and shut down Fricker's 3 in the first inning. But Fricker's did not go away and even though they did not score a lot they kept Schneider's guys from scoring a lot as well. It finally went down to the last inning and up by 8 Schneider's pitcher, Jim Schneider, let Fricker's score 5 to get within 2. Relieve pitcher Jim Johnson came in to save the game by making the last batter ground out to the middle infielder. Final score 15 to 14 Schneider Sons' Electric. Over all a great fun game again with some fantastic top ten plays including Marty Harrison's over the shoulder catch in shallow left field and 3 over the fence home runs by Norm Cairl, Matt Geisel and Patrick Henry.
Fricker's 3 - Good defense and a 7 run 7th inning wasn't enough as Fricker's #3 fell to Schneider's 15 to 14. Grandville Smith looked like Lou Brock on the base paths with his inside the park HR in the bottom of the 7th to pull #3 with in a run of tying it up, then a drive by Roy Woodworth that looked like a extra base hit was run down by a smooth running Norm Cairl in RC field. Ron Fox along with another fine pitched game was (3-4 with 2-2b hits), Tim Kuszmaul (3-4) Fritz (3-3, sac). Two batters for #3 did apologize to Jim Schneider for the come backers between his legs, sorry Jim.


FRICKER'S 11 (21) - Jeff Traudt STATE FARM (14): Frickers#11 team played good team ball, hustled and came away with the win. Jase Sweede (2-2 2B 2R RBI), Joe Bondy (3-3 2B RBI), and Jeff Huskisson (2-3 2B 3B RBI) continued their impressive hitting display. Also contributing to the offense: Rich Brownfield (2-2 3RBI), Wade Timming (2-3 2R 2RBI), Perry Chillus (2-3 R RBI), Dan Bollinger (1-2 BB RBI), Dave Kunst (3 RBI), and Mark Gedert blasted 2 OTF HR's and added 5 RBI. Great job guys.
Jeff Traudt State Farm - The Farm Boys took another loss to stay winless at the hands of Gary Downey's Fricker's #11 as they were soundly out hit and out foxed. State Farm was able to reach a season high batting average for the game of .535 but also gave up to many free passes in the pitching match up. Three OTF-HR's were hit by Keith Dominiak 2-4-2R, Bryan Chalka 1-4-1R, and sub Rick Doran was perfect for the night going 4-4-4R. Helping out with the offense was Jon Lebeau 3-4-2R, Mark Grimes 3-4-3R, Jim Watters 3-4-1R, Mark Goodremont 2-3 and Jim Dunlavy 3-4-1R.


ALLSHRED SERVICES (20) - FRICKER'S 1 (11):
AllShred Services - In the second game, between these two teams Allshred banged out 26 hits and beat Frickers 1 by a score of 20-11. Allshred played excellent defense with the outfield making several fine catches. Darren Axel, Bob Miller, and Rob Boehme each went 4 for 4 while Woody Woodrow, and Guy Stager each collected 3 hits. This was a nice hit for Allshred after a very disappointing loss in the first game.
Fricker's #1 bats went to sleep for a few hitters, as Alshred scored in every inning to blow this game open. #1 could not mount one of their comebacks this time, as only seven of their batters got hits. #1 was led by J. Czerniakowski, 3 for 3, 2B, 2RBI, Randy Rydman 4 for 4, and Neal Klopping 3 for 4, 2B.


FRICKER'S 12 (9) - BARROW'S JEWELERS (8): FRICKER'S (12) hitting woes continued in the second game of a double-header, going into the bottom of the 7th, down by four. Rick Behan started the rally with a single. Dave Obert and Rick Obert singled, and with one out, Charlie Oberlin tripled, clearing the bases. Joe Behan doubled to score Oberlin. The score was tied at 8-8. Barrow's failed to score in the 8th. Terry Thomas was place on second to start the bottom of the 7th. He moved to third on Ron Upchurch's fly to r/c. Jerry Keefe flied to left, scoring Thomas with the winning run.
Barrows lost out to Frickers Black last nite in extra innings by a score of 9 to 8. Barrows ran out of gas after the first game and couldn't muster enough hits the second game. John Johnson had two dingers and Tom Duhart added one OTFHR but that was pretty much the offensive input.
