Heat Wave

Tainos/Ad Rush Split, Tainos right on Waka's Tail!

CENTURY PARK, GARFIELD, NJ -- With temperatures hovering around 95 degrees, the veteran softball teams Tainos and Adrenaline Rush met for a Sunday double-dip at Garfield's Century Park.

The heat didn't seem to bother the Adrenaline Rush in Game 1.  Ad Rush has played Tainos 12+ times over the past couple of seasons & were winless coming into today!  Was it the heat?  July 4th weekend?  Whatever it was, Kevin pitched a great game, only allowing 4 runs on 7 hits, while Ad Rush's bats were outstanding, finding the holes in a field that doesn't carry the ball well. 

Three players tied for the lead in RBI's with 3 apiece; Craig, Joe S & Steve!  Several players batted 1.000 (Mike, Tyrell, & Steve).  Things got heated when Jon popped out with bases loaded, kicking over a garbage can!  (He was given a verbal warning). However, more importantly, Ad Rush not only beat Tainos, but beat them by 13 after 4 innings? WOW!  A Let-down game for Tainos!

Final Game 1:
Ad Rush - 17
Tainos - 4

In Game 2, the tables were turned!  Tainos brought their bats, scoring 15 runs.  Carmine rocked a 2 Run Homer, Sims went 4 for 4 with 4 runs scored. Ray contributed 2 extra base hits.  Slim had 2 RBI's off of 3 hits.  Bud had 3 RBI's!  The 1st 5 batters scored 12 of the 15 runs!

Ad Rush had their shot to keep this a game in the 4th, but John popped out with bases juiced (no garbage cans this time!).  Ad Rush is basically a .500 Team, they win, they lose, they crush someone, then they shoot themselves in the foot!  Very difficult to figure them out! 

Tainos (12-6) is still chasing Waka Cooper (14-4) for the Pete Rose division.  Watch OUT!!  Muy Buen!
