SPORTS CONCERN 29, PLACER TITLE 14
Gimme some runs. That was Sports Concern, as more than half of the score sheet boxes were darkened in this five-inning run-rule slugfest. Dan McLaughlin belted a homer and two doubles in five hits with five runs plated to lead the winning effort. Craig Merkle eyed loaded lily pads and left the swamp for a grand slam in three hits, while Ray Lannum, Ray Longo, JR Corral and Dennis Churchill each added four base knocks. Of note, nine of Concern’s 13 total outs were on flyballs to the outfield.
Jim Gosh smacked one deep and added a double in the loss. Jim Kent tossed in a double in four hits.
Caesars 13, Heavenly 8
Caesars chipped away, chalking up three in the first, second and third frames, enough to hold off a not-so-Heavenly effort. John Webb and Bob Poet both went yard in the win.
Ted Truscott provided some altitude in the loss, crushing two bombs, with a single and three runs.
SLT Realtors 20, Termite/David 9
The Realtors closed escrow early, collecting 14 consecutive runs before an out was recorded in the first inning. Robert Ward batted three times in the frame, collecting a double, triple and the inning’s final out. Mike Sanders had two doubles, a triple and a homer.
Les Wright tripled and singled twice for Termite/David. Dave Christian had three singles.
Killer Chicken 13, DM Development 5
Down three after one, Killer Chicken started doing some damage and playing solid defense. DM Development was hitless through the fourth frame, while the winners roasted the plate 10 times to seal the deal. John Short banged a triple in four hits and John Hitchcock was 3 for 3 with a double in the win.
Sam Labato, Pat Snyder and Craig Harner each had two Development hits.
Slow Motion 6, Alpaca Petes 4
Less than 10 runs in a softball game is like snow in Miami. But Slow Motion kept the pace with three in the third, led by an Eric Mattson double and Chirs Perodi single. Needing three in their final AB, Alpaca Pete’s made two quick outs before a fielder’s choice, walk and single scored Mark Graham. But it wasn’t enough.
Graham and Patrick Riley each supplied two of Pete’s eight hits.
Budweiser 13, JB Landscape 0
George Hoffman tossed a six-hit shutout. Mike Brownell knocked four singles and scored three, while Brian Stanton doubled and tripled. George Mejia singled three times and Joe Turner tripled.
