Opening Day Battle Between Behemoths

GARFIELD, NJ -- Opening Day was a showcase at Century Field #1, with 2 of the league's best on stage with Tainos & Legion of Boom. 

The 2 teams went head to head & split w/ 1 game a piece.  Truthfully, Legion of Boom had their chance in the bottom of the 7th with runners on 1st & 2nd (only 1 out) and could not drive in the 1 run they needed to put Tainos away.  You can't let a team like Tainos with firepower & attitude get a second chance.  They think they can beat you & sure enough they did in extra innings.  They scored 5 in the top of the 8th taking game 1 18 to 13.  In-game mentions below to Rey with 4 RBIs for Tainos,  and Edgar added a solo Homer in the beginning of the 6th that sparked the adrenaline Tainos needed!  Credit Left Fielder Dave for Legion of Boom with 2 outstanding catches in this game.  He covers a lot of ground & it showed Sunday!

Game 1 Final:
Tainos 18
Legion of Boom 13

Legion of Boom clearly was disappointed that they let one slip away in game 1.  They exploded for 20 runs in the top of the 1st & took Tainos' thunder completely away.  All 11 batters scored at least 1 run for LOB, James & Windell lead the way with 4 runs scored each. Kudos to Jarred on the mound for LOB, he only let up 10 hits, 5 runs & did strike out Dottie Henson (I mean Gee!).  Watch out for both of these teams moving forward as we know they will be there in the end!

Game 2 Final:
LOB - 26
 Tainos - 5
