GREAT JOB GREEN GOBLINS!!!
Thanks to everyone for a terrific season!!
Scrimmage Summary: Of course the team still has a ways to go... especially on base-running and paying attention to the game itself. On the upside the pitchers from Wednesday night (Justin, Luke, J-Rod) all did a great job. There were some nice fielding plays from Chris E., Robby C., and J-Rod and big hits provided by Bobby P., and Big Ben. I am hoping that eneryone had fun, and thank you to all the parents for a great turnout.
Game 1 Summary: What a way to start things out! Season opening, thrilling come from behind victory over Burlington City team #8. David Viselli got things started with superb pitching the first 2 innings of the game. David faced only 7 batters, striking out 2, and allowing no hits. Player of the Game; Jordan Rodriguez robbed City's 3rd batter of a sure hit with a great defensive play at third base. Luke Sowa had a strong showing behind the plate. Although the bats were not really that strong, eveyone showed patience while in the batters box. Robby Cox pitched a strong fourth inning striking out 2 and got help from a nice play when Bobby P. and Justin L. teamed up to seal the game.
Scrimmage Summary: Anthony Zack started the game out with a nice hit as lead off batter, but we were not able to mount much more offense in the beginning. Again we tried using many kids in many different positions, which I hope the team enjoyed. Justin L. again had a good outing at pitcher. In the last inning the bats woke up with big hits from Ryan M., Justin L., and an inside the park homerun by Luke S. We still need to work on our fielding and paying attention to the game, but I think we are getting there. Thanks again parents for another great turnout.
Game 2 Summary: Harris Fence goes to 2-0 with an 8-1 victory over Stella's Restaurant. This game was a nail biter up until the 6th inning when Harris Fence added 4 more runs to the board. Pitching was the key in this game. David Viselli threw 2 strong innings striking out 5. Bobby Palentchar had 4 k's, with only 1 walk. Robby Cox had a strong 5th inning striking out 2 and giving up just 1 walk. Justin Lortangeli threw a great 6th inning striking out 3 of the 4 batters he faced, while earning player of the game honors. The pitching staff recorded 14 of the team's 18 outs. Big hits were provided by Charles Sangermano, Chris Everett, J-Rod, David V. with a double, and Bobby P. with 2 doubles and a single.
Game 3 Summary: Harris Fence fell to A-Z Emblems for a 7-6 loss. This game had it all, great pitching, big hits, and excellent fielding from both teams. David V. and Bobby P. again both pitched well. Ryan McClure Saved 2 runs with a nice catch in deep left field. Robby Cox turned an unassisted double play at first base. But in the end it came down to A-Z stealing this win when Bobby P.'s 2-out bases loaded shot to right center field was caught.
Game 4 Summary: The boys bounced right back with a 12-5 victory over Burlington Coat Factory. Big hits were provided by Chris E., Luke S., David V., Bobby P., and Anthony Z. David V. again looks like the most dominating pitcher in the league, striking out 5 in only 2 innings work. Bobby P. and J-Rod each pitched well after a bit of early struggles. Luke Sowa and Player of the Game Anthony Zack teamed up for what looked to be one of the best defensive plays of the season so far.

The Goblins looked like they had this one in the bag early, but City put up a good fight, and took the lead in the 5th inning when Rodney Williams belted a homerun. The Goblins fought right back scoring a run in the bottom of the 5th to tie it up, then shut down City in the top of the 6th. Player of the game Ryan McClure crossed the plate for the winning run in the bottom of the 6th, ending a thrilling game.

Player of the Game Ben Aloi added 3 stolen bases to go along with his 2 walks adding 2 runs to the team's total.
Game 11 Summary: Stella's Market could not come up with enough players in this one and had to forfeit. The game became a scrimmage and the coaches were able to look at players in a few different spots. Justin L. and J-Rod looked really comfortable and both did a great job in their combined 3 innings of pitching. Luke Sowa and Chris Everett teamed up for a nice rundown tagout between home and third. Hopefully we can squeeze the remaining 3 games into the schedule before the playoffs begin.
