C&P club for Easton matches

Great game today.  Even we lost the first one 12-1, the second was a very spirited match.  We were winning 18-17 going into the top of the ninth. Easton scored 4 in their half of the ninth.  We could only muster 2 aces in our half, falling 21-20.  Everyone signed the game ball, which Surf will deliver to Bucket's daughter Madison, who we hope gets better soon.

Commodore, Irish and Rockhead

  Hats off to Commodore and Rhubarb who "hurled" very well.  Rock and Surf (who also had 6 hits in the finally) for manning the corner tenders and doing a superb job.  Zag tended the garden very well as usual and legged out our first recorded triple (Had to break out some vintage oxygen).  Shazam had a couple of key hits and a timely walk.  The Professor got 3 hits in the second game and his first runs batted in.  "Irish" Andy McDonald was a welcome addition, striking the ball well and adding some much needed speed, welcome "Irish"!  Even though it was not properly recorded , we actually turned a triple play.  There will be some argument over it but Zag, Rhubarb and I decided on the ride home that it truly was a triple play!!  Hope to see everyone on the 21st. I know "Irish" and "Zag" will not be there but they are the only two I know that won't be there.
