Hammer struck out 1, Logan struck out one, Kaden struck out 3 for 3, and Hollywood closed the show with 2 strikeouts on 3 batters. The other out was made by ZackAttack picking off a runner at second. Keenan also threw out a runner attempting to steal.
Hits came from Kaden with 2, Hollywood (With the game winnign RBI) Hammer,and Liam (with a great hit and RBI).
Runs came from Kaden, Homer(2) Hammer and Chipper.
You guys are really coming together as a team. Keep up the good work.

27 to 7 wow!
The Maverick Bats were lighting up the sky today. Kado 3 hits, ZackAtack had 2, Cracker had 2, Homer had 1, Hammer had 1, and Chipper had 1. 10 hits...great!
Another great day on the mound for Hollywood, Logan and Hammer as they showed those 2nd year boys how to get the job done. Only 2 runs given up between the 3 of them in 3 innings. Keep it up.
Smart baserunning today guys...way too many stolen bases to count!
No player of the game will be seleted for the tournaments. POG will resume 2nd half of season.

Great pitching and smart baserunning was the difference in last night's game as the Mavericks were able to squeeze one by the Cardinals 6 to 5. Hollywood, Logan and Hammer all had outstanding innings allowing no runs and combined for 6 strike outs. Kado, ZakAttack and Robert combined for 4 strike outs and were able to get us through the last 2 innings keeping the victory. Runs came from Kado, ZackAttack, Cracker, Hamer, Hollywood, and Danny Boy who laid down a great bunt and stole home for the winning run.
Welcome ZackAttack to the Home Run Club. 3 members so far.
We're getting better every game guys.

A tough loss tonight boys. We had them up until the last inning, but infielding errors cost us the game. More fielding clinics are necessary obviously! But on a good note, the Maverick's bats were thumpin! 2 homers from Balin and one from Robert. A great pitching effort tonight by Balin, Hollywood, Homer and Kado. Support your pitchers guys don't let them down. They need you to get those balls!
See you at practice.

The Mavericks looked good in the first couple of innings against the Twins tonight. Hits came from Kado, Zack-attack, T-Bone, Homer, and Keenan. Runs came from Kado, Zack-attack, T-Bone, Balin, Hollywood, Logan, Liam, and Cracker. Balin had another great day on the mound allowing only one run facing 5 batters. Cracker made a great catch out in left field to help him earn player of the game honours. Hollywood, Zack-attack and T-Bone all struggled on the mound tonight but look for them to get back to fine pitching form soon. Kado had to be strong at catcher tonight to keep track of all those wild pitches. Pitching takes practice guys, pratice every day! Remember to watch the 3rd base coach for the signals when on base!!

The Mavericks were looking sharp in their uniforms as they took the field last night to take on the Mariners. Agressive base running and solid pitching and defensive play was the name of the game as the Mavericks beat the Mariners 17 to 8.
Congratulations player of the game Balin. Check the side box...
Great pitching by Balin and Chad held the Mariners to only 2 runs after 3 innings. Kaden struggled a bit on the mound allowing 6 runs in the last inning. Kaden often gets off to a slow start on the mound, but look for him to rebound from that very soon and get back to his winning ways.
Keenan made a couple of great plays including the game ending out.
Hits came from Kaden, Zach, Liam, and Graeme. Runs came from Kaden (3), Zach (2), Travis (2), Balin (1), Robert (1), Logan (2), Coby (1), Liam (2), Graeme (2), and Kevin (1)
Great effort boys. But there is still a lot of work to do! Be prepared to listen and work HARD over the next few weeks!
