Good Sportsmanship is so crucial to this game, yet it is constantly overlooked.  Good Wood didn't have enough players to start Game 1 vs the NJ Expos.  With permission from the umpire, Good Wood "borrowed" a catch from the Expos (to only catch & throw the pill back to the hurler) rather than forfeit Game 1.  Kudos to Matt K. for electing to make this decision.  This is a game we all love & respect/good sportsmanship goes a long way!

It's possible Matt regretted his decision shortly after when Good Wood rocked the 1st inning for 7 runs.  Kyle & Cody P added a 3 Run Homer each!  Expos responded by scoring 4, 1 & 2 in the first 3 innings to tie the game at 7.  Good Wood soon pulled away when they dropped another 7 runs in the top of the 6th.  Jeff P added a 3 Run Homer, while pitcher Mike added a 3 RBI triple!  

Final Score Game 1:
Good Wood - 20
Expos - 9

Game 2 finished rather quickly! Kevin & Mike added Home Runs.  Mike's GF, fiance or wife showed up & caught some of these moments on camera.  Every man wants to look good for his lady, that's normal.  Let's credit Pitcher Frank Guzman of the NJ Expos for a heads up play at the mound.  He lobbed a ball across home plate that Cody P from Good Wood smashed right back at Guzman who made the incredible catch!  I think i need to lay off attending Expos games, because I am not certain there isn't part of the body Mr. Guzman has not been struck!  Way to stand in there!  Good Wood remains 9-9 in the Will Clark Division!

Final Game 2:
Good Wood - 15
NJ Expos - 3
