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

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.
