PALISADES PARK, NJ -- Where will L.O.B's first win come from? 2 or 3 Guys made darn sure it wouldn't be from them!
Oddly enough, L.O.B had the lead twice in Game 1, scoring 4 in the top of the 1st and a game high "9" in the top of the 3rd. Home Runs were care of by Jared Koeppel & Pat Walsh, while Kevin Ramirez led the team in RBI's with 4. Let's not forget Alex Monte who had a perfect day with 4 hits, 2 runs scored & an RBI. Scott Morrissey gets the loss in the pitching dual.
Michael Arkus was a beast on Sunday. Definitely the team MVP for the day. He went 5 for 5, 3 Runs Scored, a Homer & lets not forget "8" RBI's?? Insane! Adding to the offensive onslaught was Jay Stanio, Frankin & Mike Taveras, as they all added Home Runs. Again, 2 or 3 guys were down in this game early, but rallied 7 runs in the 3rd, and 8 in both the bottom of the 4th & 5th!
Game 1 Final:
2 or 3 Guys - 29
L.O.B - 17
2 or 3 Guys carried the momentum into Game two. They scored 22 runs in 4 innings & thats all they needed. Raul Arias led the team in RBI's with 5 and Mike Akkus & Luzardo Arias tied with 4 runs scored each. Pitcher Miguel Taveras recorded 2 back to back wins!
L.O.B's emotions dragged them down after they coughed up 2 different leads in Game 1. The former champs scored 11 runs through 4, but were held to 0 runs the last 3 innings. Honorable mention goes to Scott Morrissey in losing effort. He went 3 for 3 with 1 run scored & 3 RBIs!
Final Score Game 2:
2 or 3 Guys - 22
L.O.B - 11
