Couple a Hunks and Good Wood Split

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
