Game #5 Recap

Newbreed dug a hole in their opener by walking the first 4 batters prompting a pitching change.  And it was all 3rd Street early on as they had a 7-2 lead on a Tommie Melton homer and a Jason Matusick diving catch to hold Newbreed down.  In the 3rd the Street added 10 runs on a Bobby Noeth Jr double and a Matusik homer and a number of Newbreed miscues.  Newbreed came back though with homers by Victor Cordova and Adam Rockoff and a great catch in right field by Nick Mangannaro and after blanking 3rd Street in the top of the 6th Newbreed scored 6 runs in both the 6th and 7th inning but came up a swing short 26-24 with two runners on in the bottom of the 7th.

Jon Gastineau had 4 HR for Newbreed in the game

Game #19 Recap

Racks and Backman was a big winners bracket game and Racks had beaten Backman a couple times during the year.  But Backman got Racks to hit into a DP early in the game and Kennington, Stovall, and Kennington again homered in the bottom of the first and they led 12-1.  The homers continued especially from Kennington who had 3 HR and 9 RBI and Stovall who had 4 HR.  Stovall actually was hit by pop fly during the game and it knocked out his tooth and they found it and Doc the umpire who is a dentist apparently glued it back in and Ryan stayed in the game…

Game #20 Recap

Combat jumped out of the gate with homers by Greinert and Maggard and played solid ball offensively and defensively but Smash It Sports power was just too much.  Smash It hit homers from top to bottom in the lineup, 24 homers in all, a tournament high, and Kyle Pearson hit one estimated on Flight Scope at 492 feet!   The Smash It home run barrage led to a 36-21 win and Combat who played almost didn't even deserve to lose.  Helmer had 4 HR in the game.
