Men’s senior baseball league

L’il Magill’s Giants 14, Pro Bats Yankees 7

Despite yielding a whopping 14 free passes, the Giants (3-7) used a crushing 6-run sixth inning to romp over the Yankees (9-2) in CMSBL action. The Yanks committed seven errors in the field resulting in eight unearned runs for the Giants. Nick Raynor (four hits, three runs, two doubles) was the hitting star for the winners. Josh Strzelac (two doubles, two runs) added three hits of his own, while Jordan Bennick added two singles. Bennick got the mound victory in relief of Alex Rexach. Despite their control problems, the pair only allowed three Yankee hits.

The bright spots for the Bombers were Evan Carmello (four runs, three BB’s) and Joe Polichetti (four BB’s) who both reached base safely all four times at the plate. Matt Eaker and Jason Howard shared mound duties in the loss, yielding 11 hits, walking two and striking out five Giant hitters.

Trailing 3-1 in the top of the 5th, the surging A’s (5-7) scored seven times and cruised to victory over the slumping (9-4) Yankees. Austin Spicer was a perfect 3 for 3 for the winners, while Zach Nykula singled twice and Brian Gunnell scored three times. Bob Bankoski legged out a key single to help aid the A’s win. Kevin Silk was the winning pitcher in relief of Spicer. Gunnell cleaned up the last inning, striking out two. The Yanks managed only six hits, two by Joe Polichetti (two runs). The Yanks’ Dennis “Waxy” Gawronski allowed only one run heading into the 5th, when the wheels fell off. Polichetti and Allan Carmello chewed up the remaining innings for the Bombers. The trio allowed 10 hits, while striking out five and walking three A’s hitters.

Pro-Bats Yankees 9, Kosciuszko Club Phillies 4

The (10-4) Yankees snapped a three game losing streak, banging out 13 hits, topping the “Dog House” Phillies (6-6) in the 2nd half of a double header for both teams Sunday.

Vara chalked up his third complete game victory of the season on the hill, allowing four hits, striking out 13 and walking three. Mark “Spleen” Zinni (2B) wrapped two hits and scored once for the Phils. Zinni also started and lost the game on the mound. He was relieved by Ryan Thompson. The pair allowed walked seven and struck out two. Marquel Ruiz flashed his cannon arm, throwing out a Yankee runner trying to score on a single to center, to end the second inning.
