Double Header SPLIT!!
Well the anticipation of the 1st DirtyDaler game was enough to kill someone. But finally the Dalerz were able to take the field and show off there stuff. We played the CANES who are a pretty good team, and already had a few games under there belts to begin with. Well the 1st game got off to a bad foot for the Dalerz allowing the Canes to get a 7 run lead in the top of the first inning. Tommy C who normally is a gold glover let up a key error in the first inning that prolonged the rally the Canes mounted. However the Dalerz never say die and came out at the bottom of the inning mounting 4 runs to cut into the 7 run lead, with Key doubles by Adam and Johnny. Then inning came to an end and the second inning the Canes’s bats were still mighty bringing in 2 more runs for there squad. The Dalers however are late bloomers and in the 5th inning the Dalers mounted 5 runs on the bats of Pops and Jay Duponte and with some key errors in favor of the Dalers. The Canes went on to score 3 more runs througout the duration of the game however the Dalers managed to have a 6 run inning in the 6th inning on a hit streak stemming from Stud all the way thru to the bottom of the lineup to BC who hit a triple for 2 RBI’s. Overall, the Dalers managed to hold off the Canes with a 15-12 score. The Key player in game one goes to: Adam who went *3-3 with a triple, double and single and 3 Rbi’s.
Now the second game was a different story, for the Dalerz. The game started off slow and by the end of the 3rd inning not much offense was mounted by either team with a score of 4-1 in favor of the canes. However in the second inning an impressive showing of power was displayed by none other than Timmy Truebig who had a solo blast of 290ft to left center. Now back to the game at hand the fourth and fifth inning were just a wash with both teams mounting no such offense. Then in the 6th inning the Canes came on strong with a 3 run inning and then the Dalers hopes were crushed….OR were they? In the top of the 7th the dalers needed 6 runs to tie with the Canes. The top of the lineup was up and everyone was still in it, Pops and Adam consecutively singled and then Tommy came on and singled and scored pops. Then stud came up and ripped a shot up the middle and scored adam and tommy. then charlie came up and ripped a single as well to score john thus making the game within reach. Then Dennis singled as well and the ducks were on the pond when Walter came up and killed are dreams with a hit back to the pitcher to end the game with the Canes wining 8-6…..The Key player in game two goes to: Timmy who went * 3-3 with a Homerun, and 2 singles and great outfield play.
