ROUND 13

DIVISION ONE     

Twilight v Nth District 10.01.23 at Don Klaebe Field     

WON 11-7

The boys from the North brought their best game with them and posted four runs courtesy of a couple of fence clearing hits to claim the early ascendancy.  It wasn't until the fifth that we got going, and we poured on six runs to hit the front, but those pesky Reds got two more to equal.  In these twilight games of only seven innings, it doesn't pay to go to sleep, so the guys got cracking and five runs proved to be the clinchers, including a home run to Troy Nicholson.  These runs proved to be enough, as only one run was forthcoming from the Reds' last at bat.  New dad Joel went five and Cesar finished.  Hits  :  Troy Nicholson (HR) 3, Cesar Perez, Daniel Chapman, Wade Moore, Troy Weinert 1.


DIVISION ONE     

Away v GGCD  14.01.23   

 Lost 2-4

This was one of those heat shortened games - seven digs and ninety minutes - so you have to be on your mettle. So we got a run in the first due to some wayward pitching and a heap of errors, but we had duckeggs for the next five innings, and the opposition batters were not faring any better because Drew was having a great day on the hill.  Our defence was superb at this stage, highlighted by a great outfield catch from Joel, and some really classy double plays.  They got lucky in the sixth and really broke open the game with four runs which was to be the back breaker, and we got one in the last which proved to be not good enough.  Major disappointment.  I asked the scorers at the end of the game to give me a list of hitters as I always do, and they handed me a blank piece of paper.  Long time since I've seen that.  Hits  :  zip, zip and zip.


DIVISION TWO     

Away v GGCD  14.01.23 

WON 6-4

We started on red-hot pace, knocking in four after a Muggs'y double got Armando home and Racker's single scored another two.  Sorry, no more references to the Muggleton name, I promised.  They put the cat among the pigeons with a two run homer and a further two to equal but DChap put us in front with an RBI an we followed up with another.  All plain sailing really, with Joe  and Troy Nicho doing a number on them.  Hits  :  No 25, Andrew Chapman 2, Armando Ramirez, Luke Rackerbrandt, Rhys Owen 1


DIVISION THREE   

Away v GGCD  14.01.23     

Lost 5-6

A bit stiff here really - got in front after Doggy scored Lodgy and Jimmy got home due to a hit and errors, they replied with one, but we took the lead again after pitcher Tyson, in a relatively rare at bat, hit a fine  double, followed up by a Jose double.  But, the Dodger boys were not finished and rallied to score five to put them in front by two, and Pappsy came on to stem the flow. They were two in front, and with these heat shortened games, we were only able to get another one before time ran out in controversial circumstances.   Hits  :  Shane Brown 2, Jose Ramirez, Kieran Pett, David Lodge, Jimmy Chu, Tyson Hancock 1.


DIVISION SIX     

Away v Port  14.01.23     

Lost 2-6

Josh Mignone pitched the entire game.  No other details.


DIVISION SEVEN     

Home v Port 14.01.23     

WON 6-1

Casey went the distance from the hill aided by an errorless defence in this heat shortened game, and Watto hit Cuz superbly on the chest from second to complete a faultless double play.  Hitters in this game were  :  Sully, Nicko,Casey and Dorny - one each.  Sticking to the top spot.


DIVISION EIGHT     

WON 13-3 

The arduous trip to Southern Districts for a 9am start proved no problems for our intrepid Divvie eighters and Judy.  She had no scorer to sit alongside, and at one stage there was no umpire to be seen.  However this is when the tough get going.  Hits  :  Aaron Petros, Greg Oxenham 3, David Brooks 2, Shane Nicholson, Tony Tuttle, Matt Davey, Shane Lodge, Kim Soung 1.


WOMAN'S LEAGUE


DIVISION ONE     

Away v East Torrens 15.01.23     

WON 17-0

First dig, and Carly, Darna, Smack, Alyssa and Amara all hit to post four good ones.  Followed up with the maximum five in the next, then a three run inning and the maximum five again in the fourth with a Taylor treble being a highlight. She had been waiting for one all game to be in her wheelhouse, and she made the most of it.  Amara (15 years old) produced a terrific effort from the middle, pitching superbly in her first Div One start, going the distance and striking out six in a shutout.  Fine display all round, and the scene is now set for the next five games at home base on Sunday afternoons at 4.00pm.  Go girls!  Hits  :  Carly Moore 4, Darna BoersVeen, Sarah McMahon 3, Alyssa Lasscock, Catie Berry 2, Ash George, Amara Quinn, Taylor McKay, Megan BoersVeen, Skye Tasiopolous 1. 


DIVISION TWO   

At Don Klaebe Field 13.01 23 v Sth Districts   

WON 11-7

What a delight to see Friday night baseball back on our home deck in front of a bumper and appreciative crowd.  The girls loved it, we all loved it and surely that is the way forward.  Our two pitchers namely Dakota (13 years old) with four strikeouts and Alice (12 years old) with five strikeouts did their Coach, Carly, proud.  The Hawks' girls got two to start, we got three, they got four, we got another five.  We really dried them up and went on our winning way.  Hits  :  Toni Ansell 2, Di Barry, Molly Brown, Dakota Ding 1.


Juniors all back next week      -     GODANATS!
