Split Wood

GARFIELD, NJ -- It seemed like it was gonna be a rough day for the Natty Boys, w/ Good Wood bringing "Great Wood" in 3 innings in game 1.  Good Wood scored 13 in the 1st, 3 in the 2nd & 7 in the 3rd.  Leading the way with RBI's, Runs & Homers was lead-off man Paul Maffei.  He was an absolute beast, scoring 4 runs, 2 homers (1 of which was a Grand Salami) & 7 total RBI's.  Mike G. added a 3 run homer & Bobby Spindler added 4 hits (2 of which were triples) & 5 RBI's.  Steven M. pitched a solid game, only letting up 6 runs, 1 walk & 3 K's. Good Wood gets the blowout win.

Game 1 Final:
Good Wood - 23
Natty Boys - 6

Game 2, the Natty Boys were determined to start strong, they made some position changes & "X" was able to play in game 2, a speedy shortstop who definitely added some much need juice to the team.  Natty Boys rallied for 10 runs in the bottom of the 1st.  Mootz had a 2 Run Homer which sailed over Paul Maffei's head.  Leading the way in RBI's was a tie between Garrett Lopez & Mootz!  The Natty Boys cheering section seemed to increase as the games went on, we had girlfriends, wives, kids, even 2 dogs!  They were clearly in good spirits!  Good Wood almost battled back, scoring 7 in the top of the 6th.  Kevin Ross added a 2 run Homer, but also had a strikeout in the game, which his teammates ripped him relentlessly on:).  John D clearly doesn't need to swing the bat to get on base with 5 Walks, Yes...  I said 5!  Congrats to Natty Boys w/ their 1st win!

Game 2 Final:
Natty Boys - 16
Good Wood - 14
