Home Gas looking brighter

Little league action was in no
short supply last week.

Paint Pros scored three runs over
the final two innings to break open a tie game and defeat Double-A opponent
Home Gas 6-3 last Saturday.

Pablo Bertran tripled in two runs in
the first inning for Home Gas, who also had notable performances from Daniel
Reid (single, run scored), Ryan van der Bol (run scored, excellent fielding),
Matthew Guitard (two second-inning strikeouts) and Kevin Weber (impressive
second-inning fielding).

Kennedy Gallery scored a run in
every inning and held off a fierce last-inning Subway rally for a 5-4 win in
Double-A action last Saturday.

Taylor Christian was Kennedy Gallery’s
player of the game for his solid defensive play and a key RBI. Connor Hoeksema,
Krystal Arch, Javier Powery-Monterroso, Tuarean Cox and David Lee all scored
runs for Kennedy Gallery.

John Chisholm homered to lead a middle-innings
offensive explosion, as Home Gas easily defeated Subway 19-2 for its first
Double-A win of the season on March 16.

Home Gas scored eight runs in the
second inning and 10 in the third. Pablo Bertran had two strikeouts and Kevin
Weber and Ryan van der Bol played well defensively for Home Gas.

In an exciting Single-A game last
Friday, Digicel scored four runs in the bottom of the fourth and final inning
to come from behind and defeat Island Paving 7-6. Reese Hoeksema and Sean
Guitard had key RBI hits to drive Digicel’s impressive comeback.

Kevin Woods scored three runs and
Matthew Westin, Evan Crisp and Olapado Bailey each scored one run for Digicel.
Island Paving took a 6-2 lead in the second inning behind a grand slam by Gio
Foster and an RBI single by Dane Muspratt. Starter Mark Chow threw six strikeouts
and gave up only two runs in two innings pitched for Island Paving.

Bodden Beverages had a consistent
offensive attack, scoring at least four runs in every inning en route to a 13-6
win over Butterfield in another Single-A game last Friday.

Corey Mellaneo hit a grand-slam and
Lilliana Evans an RBI double for Butterfield, while Sean Trotter, Daniel Webster,
Javier Watler and Joshua Whittaker all singled and stole bases. Javier also
pitched two innings in relief and struck out six Bodden Beverages batters.
