CORE Institute - 12 Broward Factory Serv - 13

Close game with Core just coming short against Broward Factory Services despite us having a 10 run rally in the 7th, making the game exciting. Thank you to our sub, Tim Skala playing rover as well as our book keeper, Eileen Figueroa. Kudos to David Archer having an awesome stretching catch in left field. Batting---Rocco Jankowski has a grand slam and going perfect at the plate; David Archer with 3 hits; Dan Davidson, Ted Grove, Randy Van Wagner, Buck Craig, Tim Skala -- all with 2 hits each; Ed Mitchell and Wayne Siers each having 1 hit. Thanks to all for the great effort in the 7th. Hopefully rain, rain go away for the 14th.

In an early morning game, Broward Factory Services played a hard hitting Core Institute team today. For 6 innings the game was well in-hand for a BFS win. Our bats were hot and the defense was hot. BFS scored 4 runs in each of the first two innings and only gave up 1 run to Core. Both teams put up goose eggs in the 3rd inning and both teams scored one run apiece in the 4th inning. BFS held Core to no runs in the 5th while scoring 3, making the score 12 to 2 going into the 6th inning. In the 6th both teams were held to no runs leaving the score 12 to 2 going into the 7th inning with a “flip”. Then the Core bats got hot and BFS allowed 10 runs to cross the plate before we made the 3rd out and leaving the score at 12 to 12. At the “un-flip” part of the inning, our first batter grounded out then Kirk Andes ripped a double followed by a hard single by Sub Becky Holiday, bringing in the winning run, thank you Becky. (sigh of relief). At the plate the team went 25 hits to 48 at bats, 4 doubles and 2 triples. Jim Opyd went 4/4 including a double, Glenn Griffin went 2/4 with a double. Sub Tom Gruzs at SS, went 3/4. Kirk Andes also went 3/4 including 2 doubles. Sub Becky Holiday at Rover went 4/4 including a triple and the winning run. Ray Hensley 3/4 as did Jim Witkowski. Ray Kouns really hit the ball hard, went 1/3 with a triple. Catcher Ed Hart banged out a 1/3 game. This was a nail bitter at the end but BFS did prevail. The team thanks Tom Gruzs playing at SS and Becky Holiday playing Rover for us today.

Don Knowles at shortstop made several good plays and was helped by Jim Stocker who continues to dig out those short hops at First Base.

T Pham Dentist - 8 Sunrise Valley Pharmacy - 15

The dentists did not bring their drills to the ballpark losing to a good hitting Sunrise team. The game was close at the end of 5 innings with Sunrise leading 11-8 but any chance of winning went out the window when we failed to score in the last two innings!

Larry Biko 3-3, 3 RBI’s, and a walk led the team .Ron Swanson 3-4, Paul Larson 3-4 and Lee Visker, 2-4 with 3 RBI’s and a double, and Bob Lessard 2-3, all contributed .I know that we are a better team than how we played, and we’ll show it next game!

The season started today on a bright note for the Pharmacy team, with everyone getting at least one hit and the team getting 22 Hits for the game, but the key was some good defense by everyone and the players playing together and working as a team.

CORE Institute - 5 Backbone Chiropractic - 15

Core Institute took the lead of their manager and took the first week off. Most of the team was there but their bats must have gone to Minnesota with Jon Chlebech. It was a tough game and CORE just could not string hits together and fell to Backbone 15-5. There were some good things done individually but just not enough up and down the line up to challenge Backbone. Dave Archer and Rocco Jankowski were perfect at the play both going 3 for 3 with a RBI. Dan Davidson was also perfect going 2 for 2 with a walk, run scored and RBI. Not perfect but with multiple hit games were Joey Rizzuto (2 doubles, 2 runs) and Buck Craig (2 singles, run). Sub Mike Wunsch has a triple and run scored, Sub Jeff Smith a single and Wayne Siers a run batted in rounded out the offense. Thank you to subs Mike and last minute sub Jeff along with Rocco for managing the team.

Backbone Chiropractic - 21 Dillon's Restaurant - 20

Backbone finished the season at 4-4-1 after starting off the season with two 1 run losses and a 3-run loss and should be congratulated for never giving up.

Dillons Restaurant was slightly ahead in the first five innings, with a one run advantage going into the 6th inning. Backbone then pulled ahead by 3 runs to end the 6th inning. In the top of the 7th inning, Dillons scored 9 runs to pull ahead by 6 runs and it looked like Dillons might win the game.

Sunrise Valley Pharmacy - 14 CORE Institute - 13

Core Institute came out strong jumping out to a 12-5 lead after 4 innings and it looked like a possible runaway win but the Pharmacists woke up and Core’s bats went quiet. Core only scored on more run over the final three innings but still had a 2 run lead but their opponents had the final at bat and they took advantage and scored 3 runs to pull out the win. Core ended the Fall Season at 5-4 and in a tie for second place. As with most of the season, Core struggled to get a full team for the game, and this week was no different, as there were more subs than full time players for the final game therefore we will start by thanking the subs – Dick Hansen, John Gavazza, Don Cole, Mike Heitman, Becky Holliday and Artie Stackpole. Thanks also to Dale Halder who was at the game but could not play due to injury and managed the team as Jon Chlebeck stayed home fighting a nasty cough and fever – get well Jon! Pete Semenek led the offense with a 3 hit one walk game scoring all four times on 2 doubles and a triple and driving in one. Four others went 3 for 4 – Dave Zucker (run, 2 RBI), Don Cole (2 runs, 2 RBI, triple), Mike Heitman (run) and Bob Dooling (run, RBI, double). 4 others had two hits each – Dick Hansen (run, 3 RBI, double, sacrifice fly), John Gavazza (run, RBI, walk), Ray Kouns (2 RBI) and Dick Steiman (run, RBI). Rounding out the offense with a hit and a run was Becky Holliday. On behalf of Jon – thank you to the team (and all the subs) that played and contributed this session. Thanks to Amy Chlebeck and Eileen Figueroa for keeping the scorebook and keeping everyone straight on when they needed to bat.

Vital Care Rehab - 14 T Pham Dentist - 17

TP Dentists got back in the win column with a strong performance over a pesky Vital Care team. The Dentists had a 14-3 lead in the middle frame but had to hold on as Vital came roaring back and had a shot to pull it out in the bottom of the 7th but TP stayed strong and held on for the win. Everyone on the team had at least one hit and everyone either scored or drove in a run as the whole line up contributed to keep the lead to the end. Leading the way with perfect days at the plate were Chuck Gibson (4 for 4, 3 runs, 2 RBI), John Conacher (4 for 4, run, 3 RBI, double) and Bob Lessard (3 for 3, 2 runs, double, triple).

Lonnie Saiz rounded out the office with a single, walk and 2 runs scored. TP Dentist finished with a 5-4 record and a tie for second place which is not too bad considering they started 1-3. On behalf of Rocco and his shoes – thank you to all the full time players and subs that contributed to a good session. Thank you also to Fred for playing most of the season for Doug who had to sit due to injury. Also thanks to Eileen Figueroa for keeping score for the team and helping keep the team straight on when they needed to bat.

Angela's Kitchen - 15 Broward Factory Service - 14

"Angela's Kitchen finished their season on a high note, defeating Broward Factory Service 15-14. Angela's trailed for most of the game but it looked serious going into the bottom of the seventh, the score was 14-9 in favor of Broward.

On a warm sunny day, weather couldn’t have been better, playing with 4 subs, Broward Factory Service saw a 5 run lead in the top of the 7th dwindle away and lost the game by one, a heart breaker. After the first inning BFS led all the way to the bottom of the 7th with a 14 to 9 lead. Then the wheels came off. Angelas top of the order came up and just blasted the ball and plated 6 runs to take the win by 1. Defense wasn’t bad, Angelas bats just took over when it counted. Offensively, the team went 25 hits to 43 at bats, not a bad average. The leader of the pack was sub Allen Bellew, playing OF and went 4/4 with a single and 3 doubles. Ted Grove drove the ball hard, ended with a 3/4 day including a double. Glen Ryan was on his game today with a 3/4 day as well with a double. Ray Hensley also went 3/4, sorry, no doubles.
