HOBOKEN, NJ -- Northern Soul started out pretty solid. Back to back singles to open up the 1st inning, followed by a fielders choice, then another single, pop out , then an RBI single. 1-0. Certain Leprechauns were "Angry" & responded with handful! Their entire batting order came to bat in the bottom of the 1st, scoring 7 runs altogether. RBI's went to Jon (2 Run Homer), Doug, Alex, Francese & Mickey!
Pitcher Steve (Angry Leps) was dominant, allowing only 1 run through 5 innings on only 4 base hits. The Angry Leps weren't done yet, they added another 3 runs in the 4th & added insult to injury when Steve crushed a 3 Run Homer to deep left in the 8th. The fat lady has sung!
Angry Leps - 15
Northern Soul - 3

CLIFTON, NJ -- Team Minotaur came into this game atop the Cal Ripken Jr. Division & they will remain there (tied for 1st), at least for another week! Minotaur had a strong showing on Sunday at Latteri Field in Clifton, NJ. They swept the West NY PD & the mercy rule was put into effect in both games.
Game 1, Minotaur had 6 Home Runs (1 of which was a Gland Salami). Home Runs came care of Brett, Sherwyn, Khalil (2) Rob Parker & Chris B with the Slammer! Chris B. & Khalil tied for the lead w/ RBI's with 4. Lead off man Brett was a beast with 4 runs scored & only a triple away from hitting for the cycle. Clean up man Jose had a difficult 1st game going 1 for 4. Don't worry, game 2 is coming! West NY PD just struggled with extra base hits. Out of their 13 hits, only 2 of which were extra base hits:( Thats just not gonna cut it! Lead off man Cris was solid going 3 for 3 with 2 RBI's & a Homer. Aristy went 3 for 3 as well w/ 3 RBI's.
Final Game 1:
Minotaur - 22
West NY PD - 9
Minotaur didn't put down the titanium in Game 2. All 10 guys in the lineup scored at least 1 run. Leading the way was Brett with 4. If you recall, Jose had a rough first game. He brought it in the 2nd contest with 6 RBI's & 2 Homers! The team was patient at the plate as well collecting 5 walks. Shout out to Rob Parker who flat out showed how it is done at home plate as catcher. Nearly every ball that bounced in front of him on a hop, dipped right into the glove. Beast mode!!
West NY PD looked deflated in game 2, some bickering on the bench. Some players made mental errors & it just looked like they were done. Tate hit a nice 3 RBI double in the 2nd that gave the team some life, but it seemed maybe too late due to the 13 runs Minotaur dropped in the 1st. Hang in there West NY PD, it's a long season! Meanwhile Minotaur remains tied for 1st place with the Warriors in the Cal Ripken Jr Division!
Final Game 2:
Minotaur - 24
West NY PD -11
