The Holy Bs improved their record to 6 – 2 with a rain shortened 11 – 7 victory over Beth David (it may have actually been an 11 – 5 victory; we are in the process of discussing the rain out rules with the league commissioner but we do know it was a win). We barely got the necessary 4 ½ innings under our belts before the skies opened up on us.
The Bs came out with the hot bats in the first inning today as our first 5 batters scored, the last one being knocked in by Joe Cass who went 2 for 2 as did Richard Banks. Nate Charach, Randy Cass and Richie were each 3 for 3 including Randy’s two run home run over the left field fence in our four run third inning.
The outfield of David Rosenberg, Jon Burton, Nate Charach and Ryan Abrahamson tracked down every fly ball hit to them taking the steam out of our Beth David opponents. While there were no exceptional defensive plays that stand out, we did make a number of very good plays. Josh Silver made an almost spectacular play at 2nd base but the runner was safe by a step.
The competition gets a little tougher for our game next Sunday August 14 at 9:30 am when we play the Beth Tzedec team.
