Aug. 28 Highlights
FRICKER'S 3 (25) - BARROW'S JEWELERS (18): Fricker's #3 came out swinging, scoring 16 runs in the first 4 innings to top Barrow's 25 to 18. Grandville Smith went hard to hit for the cycle on the night, Tim Kuszmaul, Fritz and Mark Clair were 4 for 5, Marty also hit for the cycle to be like Grandville. Tom Parker, Roy and Charlie added two hits each.
Barrows Jewelers lost out to Frickers grey by a score of 25 to 18. Barrows fought back with some timely hitting but various errors led to their downfall. Rick Hendee helped out as a pool player and had three singles. Phil Carolann added three line drive singles and continues to improve his hitting. Doug Johnson and Tim Rowe added two singles a piece.


FRICKER'S 1 (7) - ST. CLARE COMMONS (5):
Fricker's 1 - This was a ball game where neither team was hitting very much. St. Clare pulled out to a 5 - 0 lead after three innings, when #1 finally put a marker on the board in the fourth. #1 then scored 4 in the sixth inning to tie and two in the seventh to pull out a tight win. Thanks to Jeff Wagenhauser for filling in at third base. Nate Freeman turned a great infield stop into a double play to close out an inning. Klopping and Rydman both were 2 for 4, with Beale, McGraw, and Wells chipping in with two hits each.

ALLSHRED SERVICES (18) - Jeff Traudt STATE FARM (5): Allshred put together an excellent offensive and defensive performance in defeating State Farm by a score of 18-5. Bob Miller went 3 for 3 with two OTF home runs while Steve Higgins went 2 for 3 with two OTF home runs including a grand slam in the first inning to set the pace for Allshred. John Brubaker also hit an OTF home run while Tim Wilde collected 3 hits. Bob Hoffman, Rob Boehme, Matt Edinger, and Guy Stager all had 2 hits. Allshred played its best defense, thus far, this season making several tough plays without committing any errors. A great effort!
State Farm's boys were glad to see the return of sponsor Jeff Traudt to the line up but not a mercy loss to a high powered offense of Allshred hitters. Jon LeBeau had a OTFHR and that was one of just nine hits on the nite. Jim Dumlavy was the only one to garner 2 hits in 2 at bats.

FRICKER'S 12 (18) - FRICKER'S 11 (7):
FRICKER'S #12 came out swinging and scored 18-runs, defeating a short-handed Fricker's #11, 18-7. The men in black scored three in the first, five in the second, third and fourth. Dave Obert, 3/3, (.667 BA) hit a 3-run OTFHR in the third. Top hitters: Joe Beham, 3/3,Rick Obert and Charlie Oberlin 2/3, Dan Korcsog, Tom Spy and Dave Brownfield 2/2; single and a triple. Defensive move: Korcsog moved to M/I and Terry (T-Bone) Thomas played 1b., resulting in several key double plays. DEFENSIVE GEM: With two men on base, two outs - r/c Mark Murphy raced to his left, dove, caught the ball, rolled over and hung on to it - to end the game! Fricker's #12 finished the season with a 9-7 record.
Fricker's 11 - Once again, we were beaten up by Jerry's team. With the ongoing struggle to score, the losses pile up. We hope our teammate Bill Baldwin is fine after taking one off the side of his head. Offensive leaders: Jase Sweede went 3-3 2RBI to finish the reg. season with a fine .720 mark. Mark Gedert (2-2 3RBI), Dave Kunst (2-3 R RBI), Perry Chillus (2-3 R ), and thanks to sub Tim Kuszmaul who went 2-3 R, another fine performance from the always steady outfielder. We would also acknowledge Jeff Huskisson, who, although he took his 1st hitless game of the season, finished reg. season at .705, very impressive.

FRICKER'S 10 (19) - FRICKER'S 2 (15): Frickers #10 led by Randy Bores, Rick Hendee, Rick Stager, Darren Axon, Dan Calmes all on base 3 times.Kris Brickman, Mike Gory and Cathy Ward had 2 hits Apiece. The win gives Frickers 10 second place in the division. Ready for the Play-offs.
Frickers #2 closed out the regular season by suffering their fifth consecutive loss, this time at the hands of Frickers #10. The final score was 19-15 marking the lowest number of runs by Frickers #2 this year. Frickers #2 led the league in runs scored per game but allowed the second most runs in the league this year as well. Jeff Wagenhauser, Rick Doran and Phil Richard each had three hits for #2.

SCHNEIDER SONS' ELEC (19) - FRICKER'S 1 (12): Fricker's 1 - This game looked like a blow out in the beginning, as #1 fell behind 10 - 0 after three innings. Then #1 bats woke up and scored eleven times in the next two innnings to make it an closer game. But Schneider bats were hot and they just pulled away with the win. Hitting leaders were John Yocom, 4 for 4, 2B and RBI and Jim Czerniakowski 4 for 4, 2B, 4 RBI. Chipping in with two hits each were Randy McGraw, Richard Block and Randy Wells.

BARROW'S JEWELERS (20) - Jeff Traudt STATE FARM (18): Barrows Jewelers came from behind in a slugfest and won in the last inning by scoring eight runs and held off State Farm by a score of 20 to 18. Marty Harrison made a number of nice catches in left center and added a triple and an OTF HR. Jay Schramm had a three for four nite with a OTF HR. Bill Garber had three hhits and played a good defensive third base. Doug Quint had a couple hits and played well despite a pulled hamstring. Gabe Barrow played a solid second base as did Ed Blankenship and Terry Finch. Great all around job by the jewelers.
The Farm Boys were unable to hold on to a 15-10 lead after Five and dropped a 2 run or less game for the 10th time this year. The hitting improved dramaticly in the second game of the nite with 24 for 41. The increased errors for this game soon proved to be the difference. Top hitters for the Farm were Jon LeBeau 4-4-4R-2-2B, while Jeff Traudt 3-4-2R, Jim Dunlavy 3-4-2R-2B, Ray Armstrong 3-3-1R, John Grayczyk 3-3-1R and Mark Keeling #-3-3R provided run support. Keith Dominiak was able to up his team leading home run total with a OTFHR.
