Article of the Week
Mar 26, 2012, 7:26 pm

As crafted by master article-writer, Larry Lachman.

"

Thanks to a pair of big first innings, two quality starts from pitcher Michael Barth, and stellar defense, the Royals swept their doubleheader over Tann’s Tigers and Hauf’s Giants on Sunday. Barth finished the doubleheader with a 4.0 ERA, scored 4 runs, and drove in 6.

The Royals defeated the Tigers 12 – 3 in the opener. In the top of the first, Barth was able to get out of a bases loaded jam, yielding only one run. In the bottom of the frame, Larry Lachman keyed a seven-run first inning with a two-run double.   Jett Serrett and Bill Walter led off the bottom of the first with back-to-back doubles. RBI singles by Jeremy Pease and Barth, and Joel Cerefice’s first of two RBI doubles capped the scoring.

With the Tigers threatening in the top of the second, Pease (who play outstanding at shortstop in the doubleheader) fielded a hard smash headed for center field, and turned a nifty 6 – 3 double play.

The Tigers scored two in the third to make it 7 – 3 game, and threatened again in the fourth. After crushing two extra base hits in his first two at-bats, the reigning Rookie of the Week, Sam Struthers, came to the plate in the top of the fourth with runners on first and third and two out. With a base open, the Royals had a conference on the mound to discuss whether to walk Struthers. They decided to pitch to him…carefully, and Barth escaped unscathed when Struthers lined a rocket to left center, but right at the Royals’ left centerfielder, Rob Sosebee.

Barth shut them down the rest of the way.

The Royals wrapped up their scoring in the game by plating one in the fourth (courtesy of Serrett’s lead off triple to left center), and four in the fifth. Lachman, Serrett, Cerefice, and Steve Gadol drove in one run apiece, with Lachman finishing the game with 3 RBIs to lead the Royals.

Game 1 offensive stars

Michael Barth 2 – 2, 2 Runs, 1 RBI, BB
Jett Serrett 3 – 4, 2 Runs, 1 RBI, 2B, 3B
Joel Cerefice 2 – 3, 2 Runs, 2 RBI, 2 2B
Larry Lachman 1 – 2, 3 RBI, 2B

The nightcap saw the Royals victorious, 14 – 5 over the Giants. As they did in the first game, the Royals started off strong. In what was almost a mirror image of the first inning of game 1, Serrett and Walter led off the bottom of the first with back-to-back doubles. RBI singles by Randy Ransom and Pease plated the first two runs. The big hit of the 6-run inning then came on Barth’s two-run single. Lachman and Cerefice drove in the final two runs. The Giants avoided further damage when their left center fielder, Justin Reed, made a spectacular catch, stretched out almost horizontally just inches off the ground, on a line shot into the gap by Doug Stayman.

Heading to the bottom of the second, still leading 6 – 0, Ransom crushed his first homerun of the year; a mammoth 2-run, fence clearing shot to left center field, to extend the lead to 8 – 0.

After being held scoreless for three innings, the Giants finally solved Barth and scored three runs in the top of the fourth. The Royals answered with three of their own in the bottom half, with the key hit coming on Barth’s huge 2-run triple. Barth capped his stellar day with one more RBI in the sixth, giving him five in the second game, and six for the day. Stayman paced the Royals attack with three hits in game 2.

Week 2 prewrap
Mar 23, 2012, 6:57 am

This week's game of the week features third year captain John Hauf's Giants against second year captain Scott Sulzer's Indians. After a rough weekend for the Giants, and a split for the Indians, their game should be a good metric for each team to gauge itself and figure out their expectations for the rest of the year.

"Second year as a captain means focusing more on team morale, camaraderie, enjoying my teammates and the regular season. Winning games and getting to the playoffs come along the way."
--Scott Sulzer, Indians

"I would walk through fire to play softball in this league; it is in my blood."
--Mark Biesman, Indians

"I am thoroughly enjoying the league as a rookie, and I hope our team is in many of the flex games as the summer approaches."
--Daniel Klevanosky

"We will be focusing on the basic softball fundamentals, defense and pitching. Our bats will come around."
--John Hauf, Giants

"I appreciate being expected to perform and this team should have a strong season by the end. I am extremely excited about the league."
--Justin Reed, Giants

"I am enthusiastic about the game of the week and the spotlight."
--Darren Kammer, Giants

We'll see if these teams can match the fire that was in last week's game of the week.

Article of the week, penned by esteemed veteran Larry Silverman:

Ranger Rap

 

The Rangers started the defense of their title in splendid fashion sweeping a dip at the hands of the Yanks and Cats. In the opener the Gers battled a determined Yank club to a 7-2 rather defensive encounter. The defense was quite stellar including a dazzling grab by Super -Sub Larry "Andy" Williams who song a beautiful tune with the catch and perfect throw to 1B to nab a startled runner. The offense was energized by "Man' of Troy Tennyson who had a double and triple and scored twice and drove in 1. JJ had his usual strong offensive performance plating two on 2 hits and a Sac fly. League newcomer "tiny" Tim Williams was golden at 3b and had a 4/4 day at the plate and driving home 2. Elf chipped in with two hits including a double.

The game of the week featured a barn burner extra inning nail biter with the Rangers eeking out a hard fought 13-12 victory over the Rivercats. The game featured several lead changes and lots of extra base knocks. The Cats were particularly charitable issuing 6 BB's as the Rangers Silver tongued hurler had a clean slate on the free pass ledger. Barry Hersh "y bar" was particularly sweet going 5/5 with a double, 3rbi's and 3 runs scored. JJ was again an RBI machine with 4 more on 3 hits including a two run clout over the RCF wall and possibly one or two more if he had remembered that extra innings are 1 pitch affairs!!! Yes the game went extras after the Cats hit two HR's and scored 4 runs in the bottom 7 to send us into more action. The Gers made 1 run stand up scored on a solo shot by BIG BAD Jason Murray in the top half. Troy kicked in two hits along with BUC Hauck and the Elf man. Sil had two BB's based on his reputation at age 24!!! Rookie Tim Williams was terrific at SS. What a great start!!!
