Barrows Jewelers 13, Bull Moose 1 (5 innings)

Barrows Jewelers
Barrows led by Bruce Klostermerie 3/3 Sub Doug Meek 3/3 and Bill Garber 3/3 Gary Beale 2/.3 with an OTFHR and sub Jim Watters 2/2 Bull Moose hit the ball right at us all day. Great defense and pitcher crafty Ron Fox kept the batters off stride all game, another great pitching performance . Game #2 Maroon 18 Barrows 17 Barrows finally took the lead in the top of the 7th ,but could not stop the Maroon from scoring the winning run in the bottom of the 7th. Barrow Beale 4/4, Bruce Klostermeire 3/4, Bill Garber 3/4 AND Gabe Barrow 3/4 . Thanks to subs Bob Miller and Gary Downing. Carl Clark had 2 monster HR,S in the game. Nice hitting Carl.

Bull Moose
"Tough night for the Moose tonight.. Did NOT bring an exceptionally shiny game for the always tough Jewelers.. This quick game featured a somewhat depleted crew for the antlered heroes, but did manage to draw a few fans for the visitors.. Thanks to Fritz and Wags from the pool.. Surprising leaders tonight for Bull Moose included Kevin Koepfer who went 2/2 with a double and a single, and continued to make us look good snagging throws at first base. Dave Obert scored on a Mark Clair (1/2) for our only run..."



Fricker's Navy 16 Fricker's Black 4

Frickers Navy
The Navy team again played a very solid game and upended a strong Frickers Black team. The defense was very good, the pitching of Jim Van Brandt was excellent, and the offense was more than sufficient as we continue to play well as a whole. Every team member contributed something positive. Hitting Leaders: Bob Miller ( 4-4 OTF HR ITP HR 4R 5 RBI ), Tim Van Brandt, whom it was nice to have back after a long stint on the DL, ( 3-3 BB R RBI), Dave Sanecki ( 2-3 OTF HR 2B 4 RBI), Gary Downey ( 3-4 3R), Wayne Harris ( 2-4 OTF HR 3RBI ), Rick Obert ( 2-3 3B BB 2R RBI), Woody Woodrow, (2-4 RBI). JIm Van Brandt, Jay Schramm, and Dave Copi each added key hits with an RBI. We would also like to thank sub John Johnson for coming out and playing with us. John played great in LC, and was 3-4 3R.

Fricker’s Black
Fricker’s Black split the season with Navy Blue losing 16-4. The struggle for us tonight was our bats, we only had 12 hits. Batting was led by Marty Schmenk who went 3 for 3 on the night. We only had four other batters that batted over 500 including Mark Murphy, Terry Thomas, Jerry Keefe and Joe Beham (Thanks Joe for subbing in). You won’t win many games with 4 runs. We are still above 500 and looking forward to the last regular game of the season next Thursday.



Traudt State Farm 14, Schneider Electric 13

Schneider Electric
The Schneider team jumped out quickly with a five spot in both the 1st and 2nd innings to lead 10-1 over the Farm boys. Leading hitters were Mike Sanders 3-4-OTFHR, Jon LaBeau 3-4-3R-(2)3B, and Charley O 3-4-1R. Softball requires 7 innings most of the time and the Electricians made 2 costly errors while only in 4 of the last 5 innings. Schneider had only 1 hit in the final 3 innings to fall one run short of a win.

Traudt State Farm
The Farmers were in a deep hole, down 10 -1 after two innings. But then slowly began to chip away at the lead over the next four innings to pull within 4 runs. Then a big five run 7th inning capped off a great comeback and the Farmers pulled out a 14 - 13 win over Schneider. The Farmers were led by Jose Mondragon who had 4 hits, Bob Ruckman and Larry Slomka both had three hits and a 2B, and Jim Czerniakowski chipped in with two triples.



BullMoose 18, Frickers White 2

BullMoose
"Tonight's nightcap featured a much better hitting team for the antlered wonders.. The white team played much better than the score represented in another quick game tonight.. The visitors got up early with a 5 run first inning and another in the 5th.. The still banged up crew was highlighted by BIG plays for outs by John Nicolai at second base (3/3, double and 2 base hits). Maybe John's best game this year.. The rest of the infield played very well also, getting big plays at key times to kill the Frickin' rallies. Mark Clair played well in the middle and Mike Keaton (2/3 double) has obviously gained some respect as he was rarely tested but snagged a few balls at short. George Bates (2/3) made a great play defending the pitching position that featured a great dig from Koepfer at first to secure the out.. Brian Laver at 3rd base (3/3 double) had a few good plays including the 3rd-2nd double play that ended the game for the White in the 5th inning. The always talented outfield was bolstered by Dave Obert (1/3) and a banged up but tough Craig Mantey (3/3). The big difference in tonight's game (besides great hitting) was probably getting help from pool players Kyle Ennis Green (3/3 triple) and Dave Sanecki (3/3 2 OTFHR) who not only added offensive firepower but great heads up plays and baserunning.. Thanks to both of them..It's just too bad this one started too late for half our fans.. already past bed time.."

Fricker’s White
Fricker’s White must have not gotten their beauty sleep Wednesday night because they sure played ugly on Thursday in a 18 – 2 beat down. The only triples by Dan Calmes and Monty Coffman led to the 2 runs scored in the game called after 5 innings with only 21 at-bats for the evening.



Barrow's Jeweler's 17, Fricker's Maroon 18

Fricker's Maroon
In a back and forth hard fought game, Fricker's Maroon scored a walk off win in the bottom of the 7th with a two out single by Nate Freeman. Fricker's and Barrow's battled throughout with several ties and each team answering the other. Barrow's scored one run in the top of the 7th to take the lead. Fritz Hartkoff and Jerry Edmondson started the Fricker's Maroon comeback win with back to back singles. Granville Smith and Alan Beerbower both hit shots to shortstop but both ended with fielder's choices. With two outs Nate Freeman lined a single to right field that scored Granville Smith from 2nd base and pinch runner Joe Beham raced all the way home from first base with the winning run when the throw got past the catcher. Fricker's Maroon was led in hitting by Carl Clark 2-3 with 2 OTF HR; Eric Iffland 3-4 with a 2b; Javier Almanza 3-4 with a 2b; Jerry Edmondson and Granville Smith 3-4; Kevin Greene, Jeff Batanian; Fritz Hartkoff and Joe Beham all with two hits. Congrats as Fricker's Maroon clinched 1st place overall in their division and best record overall.



Fricker's Baby Blue 19,Fricker's Red 20

Fricker's Red
In a wild finish, the winning run scored from second base on a infield fly that dropped to the ground with two out in the bottom of the 7th. Heads-up base running by super sub Terry "T-Bone" Thomas! Doug Meek 4-5 (2B); Jeff WagenHauser 3-5; Steve Higgins 3-4; Terry Thomas 3-4
