Greenbaums "shoulda, coulda, woulda WON" 
their first game of the season but lost 
in a "Slugfest" to J&N 23-22.

and left 3 runners stranded on 3rd Base -

and was losing after 5 innings 16-6.  
Greenbaums defense held J&N to just two runs 
in the 6th and 7th Innings and scored 6 runs 
to close the gap to 18-12 going into 
the last Inning.

14 of Greenbaum's 15 Batters got up to bat 
in the top of the 8th Inning, and scored 
10 big runs to take a nice  
22-18 lead going into the bottom 
of the 8th inning.   
Larry Stewart had a triple for 2 RBIs 
and Richie Sicardo belted a bases-loaded 
triple for 3 RBIs - and both scored on 
singles by other players during 
Greenbaum's 10 run rally.   

Unfortunately, J&N bounced right back 
with 5 runs on solid hits in the bottom 
of the 8th inning - with NO OUTS - to Win 23-22.  
Great defensive plays by both teams 
during the game.

GREENBAUM

Stan's Team outslugged Greenbaums 
29-17 at the Red Oaks Mill Field on June 17th.

"Most-Offensive" Players for Greenbaums:

Ernie Martin batted 5 for 5 3 RBIs;
George Hammer batted 4 for 4;
Bob "Woody" Wood batted 4 for 5 2 doubles; 
Larry Stewart also batted 4 for 5 2 doubles;

Jack Whyte batted 3 for 4;
Ed Bergamini batted 3 for 5;
Gary Landman batted 2 for 3 
plus a SAC Fly and 1 RBI.

"Outstanding Defensive Plays" for Greenbaums:

Left Fielder Stan Silverman and 
Left-Centerfielder Woody Wood 
each made 3 or 4 good running catches;
BUT - the "Defensive Play of the Game" 
for Greenbaums came with two outs and 
runners on 2nd and 3rd Base.
A batter belted a come-backer line-drive 
to pitcher Sammy Duke, and the ball bounced 
up off his outstretched glove to his 
bare hand, and then onto his shoulder, 
and then a half second later into his 
bare hand for an inning-ending out - 
which would have resulted in two RBIs - 
if not for Sammy's "Spectacular Catch" ! ! !   

Also - defensively it should be noted 
that Greenbaum's DEFENSE prevented 
Stan's 5th Run from scoring in 4 Innings, 
which coulda helped Greenbaums WIN . . . 
IF ONLY the final score was 10 runs closer. . . . .

GREENBAUM (16) at RESTRUNR (13)

GREENBAUM

In a hard-fought game, Greenbaums 
narrowly beat Restaurant Runners 16-13 . . . 
Restaurant Runners had bases-loaded 
in the bottom of the 8th Inning, 
so the tying run was on First Base.

For Greenbaums:

Roger Simon batted 3-3 2 RBIs;
Ernie Martin, Larry Stewart, 
Stan Silvernan and Ed Bergamini 
each went 3 - 4:
Larry Stewart  2B, 3 RBI  2 runs;
Stan Silverman 3B, 3 RBI  2 runs:
Ed Bergamini   2 RBI  2 runs.

Bob "Woody" Wood batted 2 for 4

George Hammer, Rick Lyons, 
Jack Whyte and Steve Lynch 
each batted 2 for 3.

Sammy Duke batted 1 for 3 
with a 2B, plus a Sac. 
Fly for 2 RBIs.

Sammy was the Winning Pitcher - 
and caught two hard-hit line 
drives to his left . . . 
IN HIS GLOVE !   
One was in the bottom of the 8th Inning - 
which probably saved two runs from scoring! 

Woody made a great defensive catch in 
Left-Centerfield with the strong winds 
playing havoc with the fly ball, 
and 3rd Baseman Ed Bergamini made 
a great shoe-string catch of a hard-hit 
line drive, and threw to Larry Stewart 
at 1st Base to double-up the runner!   

Greenbaum's defense was 
"Almost Perfect" - 
just two or three errors.

one play - with bases-loaded threw 
Home to Catcher Frank Gohl for a 
force-out to save a run from scoring.    
(Greenbaums held Sunburst to 4 RUNS that inn).  
First Baseman Larry Stewart made a great 
catch of a hard-hit grounder down the 
first base line for the final out in one 
inning to prevent the runners from 2nd and 
3rd Base from scoring.       
And, with runners on 1st and 3rd with one out, 
Shortstop Roger Simon fielded a grounder 
and threw to Lou Dimeo at 2nd Base for one 
out who then threw a strike to Rick Lyons 
at 1st Base for a 
nice inning-ending double play.   

BUT Sunburst batters kept hitting the 
ball in between our defensive players 
to out-hit and out-score Greenbaums.
