CLIFFSIDE PARK, NJ -- Sunday was a hot one in Cliffside Park, and many players felt dehydrated. But that didn't stop the Bad Hombres from taking it to Team Leonia.
The Hombres brought their bats to this one! Game 1, they had 6 Home Runs (including a Grand Salami courtesy of Clean Up Hitter Diego). Jake went on a streak with back-to-back-to-back HR's in his last 3 at-bats! Every player for Hombres had at least 1 hit in Game 1. They scored 18 total runs off of 14 Extra base hits, pretty impressive!
Leonia kept it close for most of Game 1 until the 7th inning. Batter 5 Danny was a beast, crushing 2 solo Home Runs in the 2nd & 5th inning. They just needed more from clean up hitter Josh, who only went 1 for 4 with a RBI. Matt had the only "K" of the game, as soon as he swung, he wanted that pitch back! Mate was solid, short only a Home Run from hitting the cycle!
Final Score Game 1
Bad Hombres 18
Team Leonia looked tired after keeping relatively good pace in Game 1 until the crumble in the 7th inning. Ivan had a nice eye in his at-bats, going by the old "Billy Bean" strategy of just getting on base (smart!) Lead off man Sean went 0 for 3 which hurt. Go figure that Nick who was batting at the very bottom of the order went 2 for 2 & led the team in RBIs w/ 3. They scored in 3 consecutive innings (1,2 & 4 runs in the first 3 innings).
Bad Hombres were just getting warmed up in Game 1. This one was over after 4 innings. They scored 4 in the 1st, 6 in the 2nd & 3rd & topped it off with a 2 run Homer to end the game in the 4th. Again, the bottom of order batter was solid (Ross) went 2 for 2 with a walk, 2 Homers with RBIs. Adding Homers were Diego with 2, Steve & Nick! Batters Jordan/Michael/Charlie went a combined 9 for 9 with 6 RBIS, insane production!
