Plenty of runs crossed the plate in recent little
The first slugfest was on Friday April 23 in the
Single-A showcase. Island Paving fell to Bodden Beverages 9-4 in spite of
Paving’s rightfielder Jesse Jackson claiming an inside-the-park home run.
The Island Paving fielders were on their toes and
made several exciting plays in the first two innings, the most impressive being
catcher Dane Muspratt fearlessly taking on a runner three times his size to get
an out in a gut-wrenching play at the plate. Other Island Paving highlights
included shortstop Mark Chow turning a perfect double play, a Julian Menko RBI
single and a run scored by Davin Gallagher.
The Pony division saw a lot of runs on the board on
Saturday April 24.
Cameron Walters hit two home runs and Shawn Lansdell
and Ryan Lloyd also homered to lead Coldwell Banker to a 14-0 Pony Division win
over Deloitte last weekend. Coldwell Banker scored seven runs in the first inning
behind Ryan and Cameron’s back to-back homers and great hits by Brad Lansdell,
Matthew Dube and Alex Ruffer. The Coldwell Banker hit parade continued in the
second inning as they scored seven more runs thanks to Cameron’s second homer
and Scott Lewis’ RBI single, among other hits.
Global Captive Management (GCM) had a fine
all-around display in defeating Grand Old House 14-8 last weekend. GCM’s Lyndon
Waite played a faultless game with a fine outfield performance and getting on
base all three times at bat, including a three-run homer. Will Roberts also hit
a three-run homer and a double. The GCM outfield played well throughout the
game, with Jack McGregor making two important stops. The game ended with that
rarest of Pony events- a pop-fly swallowed behind the plate by Grand Old House
In the last game the Conyers Cobras took down the Cayman
