GARFIELD, NJ -- A Couple of Hunks came into this 2-game series with a chance to take sole possession of 1st place in the Will Clark Division. In game 1, they took care of business. It wasn't pretty, but bottom line, "a win is a win".
Ironically, it was bottom of the order that really came through for the Hunks. Mick went 2 for 3 with 3 RBIs in the 9th spot & Jimmy (catcher) went 2 for 3 with a Homer & lead the squad in RBIs with 4. Worth noting that Pitcher Tyler Sanchez added a 2 Run Dinger in the bottom of the 2nd! Good Wood rallied by scoring 4 in the 7th, but too little too late. You can't score 1 run through 4 innings in slow pitch softball, it just doesn't cut it!
Game 1 Final:
Couple of Hunks - 13
Good Wood - 8
Game 2 was "hopefully" a wake-up call to the Couple of Hunks. They were cruising, up 13-5 through 5 innings. Home Runs came courtesy of Kyle D., Rick, Danny & Kyle L. Good Wood was struggling through 4. When the bottom of the 4th inning concluded, Good Wood was a combined 5 for 18, with 2 runs scored. Maybe it was their cheering section that got them rattled! Maybe the cocky swagger by their opponent? Whatever it was, the fire was lit! Good Wood turned in a 10 Run 6th inning to go ahead by 1! Home Runs by Mike & Kevin really gave them a boost. Everyone was getting in on the hitting action, Tom, John, Mike, Paul, Kevin, Bobby, Mike G & Kyle Matt all had runs scored!
You could see frustration had mounted in the dugout of a Couple of Hunks (10-4). They simply let one get away! They got complacent & paid for it. Credit to Good Wood (7-9) who stayed composed & resilient! They earned that win 100%.
Game 2 Final:
Good Wood - 14
Couple of Hunks - 13
