“The Equalizer” to the mound on a hot steamy night !!

Post One Right Hand Pitcher Jack Burns takes the hill for the 1st time since his last start in High School for the Spartans of St. Mark’s and brings his change -up back to top form once again –

It was a hitters night for most, if not all of the Post One line-up Thursday night and they got to Post 10 Generals SP Hauser in his 3 inns of work ( 5 hits and 8 runs charged to his line ) before going to the pen and bringing in Bovankoci in the bottom of the 3rd .  That was all Mr. Burns needed to let his FB and Change-up do their own damage to the Post 10 line-up of – Jack went 5 inns for Post 1 giving up 4 runs on 4 hits ( 2 of them to Post 10 starting SS Hollaway w/ a double and single 2 rbi night ).

The Post One team won in 5 inns by 10 run rule when a bases loaded double off the bat of Tyler Satterfield scored  all 3 men on base as Christian Colmery was running like a receiver for the end zone scoring from 1st base on the centerfield gap shot off Satterfields bat … It truly was an all hands on deck W for Post One as plethora of hitters contributed on the 9 hit 14 run night !

Brelick , Hauser and Hollpway all had hits for the Post 10 Generals … Burns get his 1st win for Post One and Bovankoci takes the loss for the Generals  

Stahl Wins a tough game

Both teams had lost part of their Family

It was a heavy hearted game at Wilson field between Del Vets and Stahl Post. Del Vets jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in top of the first inning. Stahl Post put up 2 runs in the bottom of the first and settled in to get the win 8-3. 
Last week, Delvets manager Mike Buono lost his mother after a long battle with cancer. Her funeral was Wednesday.
Then last Friday came word that long time Stahl Post 30 manager Robert "Bob" Anderson had died suddenly. Anderson had been involved with Stahl Post 30 and our league for decades. His funeral is today, Thursday July 8th at the Spicer-Mulikin Funeral Home, 1000 N. Dupont Parkway, Wilmington Manor. Stahl Post 30's game with the Post 10 Generals has been postponed so the team can attend.
