Tycobbian Baseball Union - West Division

Lynx Lambast Blue Sox, 14-5
The game was never in doubt -- La Claire wrapped it up early with 5 runs in the third and 4 in the fourth -- totally destroying the Blue Lake Blue Sox 14-5. Leading the Lynx attack were Rich Hart with 3 hits, 2 homers and 5 RBIs and Dennis Weiss with 3 hits, a home run and 3 RBIs. Donnie Bullock was pinned with the loss, ripped for 9 runs in just 4 innings. Only 5 were earned. Winner Pat Daniels labored, but finished the game, although he surrendered 5 runs and 10 hits.

Vikings Win 11-Inning Thriller
The Bayview Vikings jumped on Rod Kelley for 3 runs in the eleventh to knock off Arlon 8-5. Kelley retired the first two batters, but then surrendered a double, single and 2 walks to force in a run. At that point Jeff Nieman relieved Kelley and Skip Daniels promptly drove in two more insurance runs with a single.
Good relief work by Manny Tettelbach and Fred Snow got the victory. They shut out the Champions over the last three innings. Kelley was nailed with the defeat. He gave up 3 runs in less than two innings. Snow was the winner.
Offensively the Vikings shelled Arlon for 14 hits with 5 players collecting 2 hits each. Arlon was led by Jerry Keller and Kris Gervais, each had 3-for-5. Dwayne Coleman rapped a solo shot for Bayview, while the Champs smacked 3 out of the park. Archie Berry, Smoke Zakharov and Jerry Keller each collected one. It was Keller's second of the season.
The two clubs combined for the most doubles in an IPA game with 7. Bayview had 5 and Arlon hit 2.

Frogs Leslie Halts Bucs, 5-1
Fairfax lefty Jack Leslie cruised to a 5-1 triumph over Bay St. Clair at the Frog Pond. He checked them on 7 hits, while fanning 5 and walking 3. Stan Cobb headed up the hitters with 2 hits and 2 RBIs. Ted Jorgerson copped the loss, giving up 4 runs and 5 hits in 5 innings. Only one of the runs was earned.

Ruthlandian Baseball Union

North Division

Vipers Edge All-Stars in 12 Innings
It took twelve long innings, but Valmara finally did in Elnora, 6-4. A one-out double by Louis Sharp and a triple by Jet Kazmarek won it for the Vipers. Kazmarek got an additional run, when he scored on Jan Szymanski's sac fly. Danny Blauser got the win, going 4 scoreless innings in relief of starting pitcher Paul Schoenfeld. Alonso Herrera was tagged with the loss.
Valmara is unbeaten in 3 games this season.
The game's top batsmen were Szymanski 2-3 with 3 RBIs and Sharp and Kazmarek, each with three hits and two runs scored. For the All-Stars, Gil Foster led the way with three hits and three RBIs, including a home run and Art Atkins had a perfect 4-for-4 day.

Howard and Salazar Homers Beat Glasco
Two 2-run homers paved the way for Volusia to power past the Glasco Athletics 5-3. Alejandro Salazar parked one in the first inning off losing pitcher Kenny Metcalf and Lonnie Howard did it again in the third. That was all Hank Massey needed. He scattered 8 hits in a route-going performance, struck out one and walked one to gain the win. Lloyd Windham was his only nemesis with 3 hits, including a 2-run home run. Metcalf permitted 5 runs in 5 innings, but only 3 of them were earned. Glasco relievers Jeremiah McDonald and Ray Cook held the Vigilantes scoreless over the last four innings.
Volusia is 1-2 on the season, while Glasco drops to 2-1.

Moore Saves the Day for Redhawks
Far Mountain's Vincent Moore bailed out starter Denny Arthur in the eighth inning as the Redhawks held on to beat the Colfax Blasters, 6-4. It was Moore's first save of the year. Arthur got credit for the win, but struggled thoughout the game with his control -- he walked 6.
So far, Far Mountain has taken the first three games of the series and is unbeaten this season.
Johnny Stickland and Shirai Kobayashi continued their longball assault on IPA pitchers. Both homered again for the Redhawks and accounted for 3 runs between them. Strickland now has hit 3 for the season and Kobayashi has walloped 2.
Greg Forrest absorbed the loss for the Blasters, yielding 8 hits and 6 runs in 5 innings.

South Division

Marston Nine Mauls Westerners
It was a big day for Marston. The Nine pounded out 18 hits in a recording-setting day for them in the 15-2 romp over Waleska. That is the most runs ever in the young history of the Islandian Pro Alliance. Marston has won all four games with the Westerners this season. Tommy Reinhold was 3-for-6 with a homer and 5 RBIs, Ken Green 3-for-6 with 3 RBIs and Sam Dixon 3-for-6 with an RBI. The Nine also set a league record for most doubles in a game with 6.
Righthander Bob Lowe tossed a solid game, putting down the Westerners on a six-hitter. He struck out four and walked two in a complete game. Rudy Kraft was the losing pitcher.
The old record for the most runs was set April 22, 2001 by the Claxton Diamonds, when they plastered Sugar Valley 14-2.

Sunbirds Nip 'Jacks in 9th, 10-9
Shortstop Danny Church of the Belair Beach tied the game with a solo homer in the eighth and won it 10-9 in the bottom of the ninth with a sacrifice fly. In all the Sunbirds cracked 4 bases-empty home runs off Forest City pitching to come back from a 7-2 deficit. Right fielder Nicky Swift had a pair for Belair Beach and catcher Denny Everhart one. Everhart also smacked a two-run double and drove in 3 runs. Third baseman Dom Corbelli was 3-for-4 and knocked in 2 runs for the winners. First baseman J. T. Edmonds led the Lumberjacks with a home run and a triple and 4 RBIs.
Lou Zanelli picked up the victory with a scoreless 2-innings of relief, while Herm Bahr gained the loss, giving up 2 runs in the last 2 innings.

3 Rattlers Shutout Diamonds
Sugar Valley vanquished Claxton 9-0 as three hurlers combined on a 4-hit shutout. Rattler starter Harvey Hines went the first three innings, but his arm stiffened up and he needed relief. Nicky Lynn went the next four frames and Gregg Neal finished off the Diamonds the last two innings. Lynn only gave up 1 hit in the outing and he notched the win.
The Sugar Valley attack was led by Rudi Oliver and Ken Arnold with roundtrippers. Oliver had a 3-run homer and Arnold belted 2 hits and drove in 2 runs.
The Rattlers have won two the the three games in the series so far.

North Division

Vipers Set IPA Records
The Valmara Vipers completely destroyed the Elnora All-Stars at State Fair Park, breaking the IPA marks for most runs and most hits in the 19-3 massacre. Chuck Kowalczyk fanned 8 in a route-going performance for the club's fourth victory in a row. Jan Kazmarek, Floyd Vinson and Jan Szymanski were the Vipers big guns with 3 RBIs apiece. Even backup shortstop Mike Ellefsen got into the act with a grand slam in the ninth in his only at-bat.
Valmara set records for 22 hits and 19 runs, breaking the old marks held by Claxton (19) and Marston (15). The Vipers and All-Stars also combined to set a new mark with 22 total runs between them. Claxton and Sugar Valley held the old record with 20 runs in a game.
Valmara is still unbeaten this year and the Diamonds are winless in four games.

Glasco's Darby Blanks Volusia
The Glasco Athletics got an outstanding game out of 21-year-old righthander Charles Darby, who whitewashed Volusia 1-0 on 5 hits with 9 strikeouts. Shortstop Zach Byorvik delivered the winning blow with a second-inning homer. Leo Flores almost matched Darby except for the roundtripper. Flores went 7 strong innings and yielded only 5 hits.
The A's have won three of the four games in the series at Athletics Field.

Blasters Barely Beat Redhawks
Colfax got its first win of the season, but it wasn't easy. The Blasters took a 7-1 lead after seven innings and almost didn't survive. Far Mountain mounted a 6-run explosion in the eighth and came close to pulling it out, but Robbie Smith set them down in order in the ninth for the save and the 8-7 win. Pat Lott and Vic Boldt led the Blasters attack. Lott had 2 hits and 3 RBIs, while Boldt had 2 hits and 2 RBIs. Dennis Cole drilled his 2nd home run of the year for Colfax.
The Redhawks roughed up Blaster pitchers for 18 hits, but wasted too many of them, especially in the first seven frames. Johnny Strickland was 3-5 with 3 RBIs and his 4th home run, Gerald Davis added 3-6 and 3 RBIs, including a roundtripper and Al Nixon chipped in 3 more hits -- but to no avail.
Far Mountain's record fell to 3-1 on the year with Colfax improving to 1-3.

South Division

Unbeaten Marston Wins 5th Straight
The Marston Nine are making it look easy so far in the Islandian Pro Alliance. They have registered five successive wins and are in first place in the Ruthlandian South Region. Cody Hill won his second game of the young season by whipping Waleska 8-2. Hill lasted into the eighth when he weakened and needed help from the bullpen. Jorge Bonilla got the last four outs for him. Smokey Joe Carter lost for the second time to Hill, allowing 4 runs and 9 hits in 6 innings.
The top Nine hitters were Ken Green 3-for-5 with a homer and 2 RBIs and Johnny Berthold with a double and triple and a pair of RBIs.
The Westerners have now lost all five games this season.

BB Smacks 'Jacks 9-8
First baseman Nickie Gulino smashed a pair of home runs and drove in 5 runs to spark Belair Beach to a 9-8 victory over Forest City. The Sunbirds jumped out to an 8-0 lead and just managed to win it. Closer Lou Zanelli came in with the tying run on first and no outs and retired the Lumberjacks 1-2-3 to nail down the verdict and chalk up his first save of the year. Ricky Mitchell had quite a game for the 'Jacks with 4 RBIs and 3-for-4 at the plate. Neither starter was effective. 6'10" Slim Mosley was the winner, while Ernie Hill took the loss.
The Sunbirds improved to a 3-1 record, while Forest City dipped to 1-3.

SV Slaughters Claxton 15-6
All went well for the Sugar Valley Rattlers today at Farmers Memorial Park. They took the shine off of the Claxton Diamonds by overwhelming them 15-6, setting a new IPA mark for most runs in a game. A 13-hit rampage and nice pitching by southpaw Tony Michelet insured the victory. Karl Dietz and Jorge Vargas both drove in 3 runs to pace the offense with Freddie Vaux tossing in a two-run roundtripper and 2 RBIs. Michelet fired 8 innings and allowed only two runs and claimed the win.
The two-team total of 21 runs also set a new league record.
It was the Rattlers third win in four games against Claxton.

It was South Fork's third triumph in four tries against the Luxora.

Ninjas Hart 6 Scoreless Innings Top Naturals
The game at Ninja Stadium started off like a slugfest, but excellent relief work put a stop to it after three innings. Ginza's Buddy Hart took over from troubled Toshiya Tamura in the fourth frame with the score 6-4 and completedly stopped the Ozarka Naturals on just 2 hits in 6 outstanding innings. Hart was credited with the 7-4 victory. The Naturals relief corps, Donnie Young and Yasuyuki Nakagawa also stood out, allowing only one run after the third. The loser was starter Emile Leduc, who was blasted for 6 runs and 5 hits in the first three innings.
Charlie Campbell and Kenshin Yamamoto were the offensive stars for the Ninjas with a homer each. Campbell drove in 3 runs and Yamamoto 2. Doug Cunningham hit a 3-run shot to pace Ozarka.

Valmara Sweeps Series from Elnora
3 runs in the twelfth inning enabled Valmara to eke past the Elnora All-Stars at State Fair Park 4-1 and take all five games of the series. The game was marked by fine pitching by both teams with Zarek Zalewski combining with Danny Blauser to fend off Elnora. Zalewski scattered 9 hits in 9 innings with 3 walks and 3 strikeouts, permitting only run run. Blauser came on in the tenth and twirled three scoreless frames and got his second win of the year. The All-Stars Tyrone Gray was sharp as a tack, tossing the first nine frames, allowed only one run and 6 hits with 6 Ks and 2 BBs. Troy Hudson was the victim of the twelfth-inning uprising and was the loser in the game. Mike Ellefson singled in the lead run, Louis Sharp chipped in some insurance with a 2-run single.

Not only did the Blasters get the pitching, they backed it well with a 13-hit barrage to easily rout Far Mountain.

Hellcats Griffin Tops 'Canes 6-2
Hartsdale took the opening series of the IPA first season with a 6-2 decision over Cape Coral. The Hellcats won the series at Pioneer Park three games to two with a fine outing by righthander Danny Griffin, who posted his first win of the year. He limited the Hurricanes to only 3 hits, struck out 9, while walking 4. Griffin lost on opening day 5-2, but he got plenty of run support today from catcher Nickie Griffin, who went 4-4 with 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored, including his first homer of the season. Left fielder Mel Poe chipped in 3-4 and first baseman Walt Long delivered 2 hits in 4 tries and scored twice. Left fielder Eric Smith pace Cape Coral with 2-for-4 and a home run.
Wally Robinson (1-1), who had beaten the Hellcats on opening day, succumbed the second time around. They slammed him for 11 hits and 4 runs in 5 innings. In all, Hillsdale rapped out 14 hits, including a new IPA record for doubles with 7.
The Hellcats are tied for first with Luxora and Ozarka, all with 3-2 marks this year.

Zorros Give Game to Stallions in 13th
Shoddy defense ruined a splendid 13-inning battle. Two botched flyballs gave the South Fork Stallions a 4-3 victory over Luxora. Paul Giles led off the inning with a base on balls off losing pitcher Eddie Castillo (0-1), scampered to second on a sacrifice, moved to third when left fielder Pedro Vizquel dropped an easy pop fly and scored when third sacker Roberto Vina muffed a simple infield fly. Jerry Harrison (1-0) picked up the win with a scoreless thirteenth.
Mack Stewart and Ken Robbins led the South Fork hitters, each banging out a homer. Eric Richter lashed out 3 hits for the losing Zorros, who committed 4 errors for the day.
Nontheless, Luxora grabbed 3 of the 5 games in the series. South Fork is tied for last place with Ginza and Cape Coral in the TBU East, but only one game off the pace.

Nats Hatch Wins 2nd, Stops Ginza 8-2
Luther Hatch of Ozarka throws a lot of pitches and walks a lot of hitters, but he doesn't give up many runs. The little 5'9" righty won his second straight complete game, dumping the Ginza Ninjas on their home turf 8-2. Hatch throttled them on just 5 hits, fanned only 2 and walked 6. The Naturals backed him up with 4 roundtrippers - Duane Starr and Doug Cunningham each had 2-run blasts, while solo shots were hit by Rickey Simmons and Ronnie Patterson.
Kazahiro Nakayama in a decent effort suffered his second loss to Hatch. He allowed 4 runs and 7 hits in 7 innings and had 7 strikeouts. It was 4-1 when he left the game.
Ozarka won the series 3-2 on the road at Ninja Stadium.

Ruthlandian Baseball Union

North Division

Colfax Gives Vipers 1st Loss
The Blasters got strong pitching from Alex Castille (1-0) and closer Pat Langlais to nip the Valmara Vipers 4-3 at Mountain View Stadium in Colfax. It was the Vipers first loss this season after five wins. Castille stopped them on 4 hits and 3 runs, but needed help from Langlais in the eighth to get the final five outs. Valmara had cut the score to 4-3 with a two-run rally, when Langlais snuffed it out.
Starter Todd Turner (1-1) of the Vipers deserved a better fate, he gave up all 4 runs, but only one was earned. He fanned 4 and walked no one in 6+ innings. A 3-run seventh did him in. Catcher Howie Peterson make it 2-1 with an RBI-single and left fielder Sammie Hawkins upped to 4-1 with a 2-run single.
The Blasters are now even for the year with a 3-3 mark.

FM Redhawks Dump Athletics 5-2
Far Mountain's Vic Vaux and Doc Rutledge teamed up to whip Glasco 5-2 at Athletics Field today, stopping them on 8 hits. Vaux (1-0) went the first 7.1 innings and checked the A's on 6 hits, then Rutledge came on and closed it out, holding them scoreless in the eighth and ninth to get his first save this season. The Redhawks banged out 13 hits in all to improve to a 4-2 record, 11 of them off loser Arnie McFalls (1-1), who gave up 5 runs in 6 innings.
Far Mountain was paced by 1B Royce Benson with 3-4 and three players with a pair of hits each, C Dave Davis, SS Johnny Strickland and LF Joe Leroux.
Glasco dipped to 4-and-2 on the year with the loss.

Elnora Breaks 5-Game Losing Streak
It took an outstanding mound performance by a tall and lanky lefthander to put an end to Elnora's 5-game losing streak. 6'6" Carl Costas (1-1) limited Volusia to just 4 singles in his 3-1 victory at State Fair Park. Costas walked 2 and fanned 4 to pick up the All-Stars first win ever in the IPA. He outdueled little 5'6" Pee Wee Cruz (0-2), who tossed 7 innings and gave up only 3 hits and 2 runs.
Elnora only got 5 hits in all, but made the most of them. In the third, Will Jackson doubled to lead off the inning, advanced to third on a fly ball, then scored the first run of the game, when Costas grounded out to third base. Three walks by Cruz put him in hot water with one out. Richie Franklin hit into a force out at second and pushed across the second run. The Vigilantes failed to complete the double play.
Volusia cut the margin to 2-1 in the seventh when right fielder Art Atkins threw badly in an attempt to get Alejandro Salazar at home. A good throw would have gotten him.
In the eighth Quincey Peterson's one-out single plated Harry Wright with the final run, making it 3-1.
Both clubs are now 1-5 this season.

South Division

Marston Edges FC 6-5
It wasn't a thing of beauty, but Marston's Casey Ledbetter went the route and beat Forest City 6-5 at Riverside Stadium. He scattered 9 hits, walked none and fanned 3 to run his record to 2-0. Second baseman Ken Green led the Nine with 3-5, 2 runs scored and 1 RBI. Shortstop Lenny Torricelli added 2 hits and 2 RBIs. Catcher Eddie Allen and right fielder Chris Deangelo chipped in solo home runs. Marston ran up a 6-3 lead in the seventh and withstood a Lumberjacks rally in the eighth.
Brian Charles (1-1) suffered the defeat, rendering 7 hits and 6 runs in 7 innings. Charles had control problems and walked 7. Forest City left fielder Chuck Hill and third baseman J. T. Edmonds both slugged homers and drove in a pair of runs.
It was the Nine's 6th victory in 7 games this year. Forest City dropped to 1-5.

Oliver's 3-Run Smash Propels SV
Timely hitting and excellent relief work sparked Sugar Valley to an 8-5 triumph over Belair Beach at Farmers Memorial Park. It was Rudi Oliver's 3-run roundtripper in the seventh that put the Rattlers ahead to stay. Gregg Neal (1-0) sparkling 3-innings of shutout ball played a very big part as well. Dan Garrett (0-2) took the loss for the Sunbirds as he yielded 7 runs and 7 hits in 6 innings.
Sugar Valley won despite allowing three homers, two by Matty McDermott and one by Denny Everhart, his fourth of the season. McDermott had 3 hits and 3 RBIs, while Everhart was 3-3 with 2 RBIs. Jorge Vargas also homered for the Rattlers. He had 2 hits and 2 RBIs.
Sugar Valley improved their season record to 4-2, while Belair Beach fell to 4-2.

Westerners Whip Diamonds 6-4
A big 4-run fifth ignited a 6-4 Waleska win at Westerner Field over the visiting Claxton Diamonds, highlighted by SS Wiz Taylor with an RBI single, a 2-run base hit by RF Big Hoss Burkhalter and run-scoring single by CF Rick Vaughn. Closer Jack Wagner came on in relief of starter Marv Chancellor in the seventh and proceeded to nail down the verdict, allowing only 1 run and 1 hit for the save. Chancellor (1-1) got credit for the win, going 6 frames and permitting 3 runs and 4 hits with 6 strikeouts, while walking 5. Burkhalter and Taylor both went 2-for-4 to pace Waleska. CF Vern Jennings was the Diamonds top hitter with a double and a homer in 3 at-bats and 2 RBIs.
Pete Castellani (1-1) suffered the loss, surrendering 6 runs and 7 hits in 6 innings.
On the year Claxton is 2 and 4 in the won-lost department, while Waleska is now is 2 and 5, having won their last two games.

I want to make 90% of the substitutions in the games
I love that idea...I've hedged on fictional leagues before, but I think this may be a workaround. Plus it will let me know everybody a bit better.

Well done. I look forward to following.

Tycobbian Baseball Union

East Division
Hellcats Outhit Zorros 10-6, Top Division
The pitchers had a rough day at De la Vega Stadium in Luxora today as Hartsdale hammered the Zorros 10-6. The Hellcats smacked 14 hits in the hit-fest, paced by Walt Long, Jesus Guzman, Francisco Abreu and Steve Ward, all of them bashed out 3 hits. Hartsdale blasted 4 homers, one each by Guzman, Abreu, Mel Poe and Nickie Griffin. 3 runs in the eighth and 2 in the ninth put away Luxora. Tom Fortunato went 2-for-5, including a 3-run home run for the Zorros.
In a rocky outing Glenn Mann (1-0) garnered the win for the Hellcats with an inning of help from Gene Young. Luxora starter Johnny Montel (0-2) lost for the second time this season, allowing 5 runs and 10 hits in six innings.
Hartdale upped their record to 4-2, good enough for the top spot in the Tycobbian Baseball Union East race. With the loss the Zorros are now even at 3-3.

'Canes Wooten Homer Twice, Beat Naturals
Roger Wooten, first sacker for Cape Coral cracked 2 homers in the Hurricanes 5-4 win over Ozarka, but it was shortstop Andy Anderson who delivered the death blow, a 2-run homer in the fifth inning. Wooten was 3-4 with 3 RBIs in the game. The Naturals CF Teddy Braun topped his club with 3 hits and 2 runs scored.
Righthander Gary Fountain (1-0) got the victory in a creditable start. He went 8 innings, gave up 4 runs on 5 hits and struck out 5. Lefthanded closer Katsuyuki Nagashima gained his first save this season with a runless ninth. Tony Didriksen (0-1) got the loss. The 'Canes whacked him for 5 runs in 6 innings.
Both clubs are now even for the year with 3 wins and 3 losses. They are tied for second place in the TBU East and trail Hartsdale by a game.

SF Stallions Grand Slam Ginza
The hitters had it their way in the game today at Ninja Stadium in Ginza -- but the visiting Stallions from South Fork got the best of it. They did it in grand style, too, with 2 grand slams and a 10-7 victory. 2B Ken Robbins nailed one in the opening frame to send South Fork off to a 5-0 lead. The Ninjas closed the score to 6-5 with a 5-run fourth, but then LF Paul Giles drilled the eventual game-winner with the bases loaded in the sixth, giving the Stallions a 10-5 margin. Both Giles and Robbins tied the mark for most RBIs in a game with 5 and now share it with Nickie Gulino of Belair Beach. 2B Hirokazu Kobayashi paced Ginza with 3 RBIs.
8 pitchers were used in the runfest, 6 by Ginza. SF starter Flint Battle (2-0) labored through 7 innings, but got the win with help from Kyle Moss. Vic Rousakis (0-1) was the losing pitcher, lasting only one inning.
In the TBU East standings South Fork is tied for second with a 3-3 record and Ginza is 2-4 and in last place.

West Division

LC Lynx Win Opener Over BSC Bucs
La Claire won their fifth game in six tries this season with a 3-run uprising in the last of the eighth inning to subdue Bay St. Clair 7-4 at Capitol Park Stadium. Darrell Boyce broke the 4-4 tie with a double and Al Tisak singled across two more to clinch it. In relief Frank Lamoreaux (2-0) chalked up his second win by getting the last eight outs of the game. Bucs closer Denny Coulon (0-2) was the victim in the eighth and absorbed the defeat. He was rapped for 3 runs and 3 hits in less than two innings. The Lynx outhit Bay St. Clair 12 to 8 in the game. Boyce was a perfect 3-for-3 in the game with 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored, Artie Scott was 2-3 with 2 runs and Tisak was 1-4 and drove in 3. Charley Moon led the Buccaneers with 2 hits in 5 at-bats and 2 RBIs.
La Claire remains atop the TBU West with a 5-1 mark, while Bay St. Clair slips to 2-4 on the year.

Champs Smith Puts Away Frogs
He ran of gas right at the end, but Craig Smith (1-0) of the Arlon Champions still managed to whip Fairfax at the Frog Pond 7-3. He was relieved in the ninth after checking the Frogs on 3 runs and 6 hits. Smith fanned 7 and walked 3 in a good outing. Jim Davis got the final three outs for him. Jackie Leslie (1-1) sustained his first loss of the season, permitting 5 runs and 6 hits in 5 innings.
4 runs in the first frame and 3 more in the sixth was all the scoring the Champs needed. CF Jerry Keller led Arlon with 2 hits and 2 RBIs and 1B George Lyons provided a solo home run. Fairfax center fielder Gregg Vincent had a 2-run roundtripper and left fielder Gator Davis slapped a solo shot.
The Champions rung up victory number four this year. They have lost twice, a record good enough for second place in the TBU West. Arlon is now one game off the pace of first place La Claire. Fairfax is 3-3 and two games behind.

Bayview Bombs Blue Sox
The Bayview Vikings tore into Blue Lake pitching to the tune of 16 hits and waltz off with an easy 14-5 victory before a delighted crowd at Downtown Plaza Stadium. Left fielder Gerry Mason had quite a day at the plate with 3-for-3 with a homer, double and 6 RBIs, a new IPA mark. There were many other hitting stars -- 2B Skip Daniels was 3-5 with 3 runs scored, RF Glenn Burns 2-4 with 3 RBIs and 3 runs and 3B Alan Hansen 2-2 with 3 runs and an RBI.
On the mound relievers Fred Snow and Buzzy Lewis protected the huge lead by blanking the Blue Sox over the last 5 frames. Paul Hood (1-0), in relief of starter Mike Jardoin, benefited from the great run support, pitched one inning and got credit for the win, in spite of allowing a run. Jardoin couldn't stand the prosperity, lasted only 3 innings and gave up 4 runs and 4 hits, leaving with score 5-4 in his favor.
The Vikings closed out the day at 3 wins and 3 losses in the TBU West, while Blue Lake continues to stumble with a dismal 1-5 mark.

Thanks for checking it out.

Let me know how I can improve the coverage.

I hope to add some personality to the league with comments and stories about the players, managers and owners.

A dynasty needs more than just stats.

After the first week of play in my first league ever with OOTPB 2007, I really am enjoying it.

I have only run test leagues up to now, just to proof news and check out statistical results -- never for fun.

It really is a great game...far better than I expected.

I have even seen players dropping throws for the first time in my OOTPB history.

I also saw an infielder drop a pop fly for the first time ever in my OOTPB history.

Now if only the LF, RF, SS and 2B catch some foul balls, that will just about give the game all of the basic plays in baseball.

Ruthlandian Baseball Union

North Division

All-Stars Best Vigilantes
At State Fair Park Stevie Howard strolled in from the bullpen in the seventh with Elnora on top of Volusia 7-5. He proceeded to strike out 5 of the 9 batters he faced to get his first save this year. The All-Stars knocked off the Vigilantes 8-5 with the victory going to Sean Sykes (1-0), who struggled through 6 innings, allowing 5 runs and 8 hits. Volusia's Hank Massey (1-1) was pinned with the loss as he was banged around for 7 runs and 11 hits in 6 innings of work.
2B Gil Foster put Elnora over the top with a 2-run homer in the sixth, making the score 7-5. CF Harry Wright finished the scoring with a solo shot in the eighth.
All total the All-Stars belted out 14 hits with Foster and LF Quincy Peterson getting 3 each. 1B Alejandro Salazar slugged one out of the park for the V's.
Elnora raised their season record to 2-5 and are in fifth place and Volusia fell to 1-6 and last in the Ruthlandian Baseball Union North race.

Glasco Massacres Far Mountain
Glasco got the biggest inning in IPA history today at Athletics Field. They scored 9 runs in the eighth inning to rout the Far Mountain Redhawks 16-5. They had the benefit of 15 hits and a recording-setting 10 walks and 6 errors by Far Mountain. The A's attack was led by Ox Beauvais with 3-4 and 4 RBIs, Lee McDougall 3-6 and Scotty McPherson 3-4. McDougald and Beauvais each homered in the game. Glasco led only 7-5 going into the record-setting inning.
Kenny Metcalf evened his record on the year at 1-1 as he worked into the seventh before being relieved by Ray Cook. Metcalf was tagged for 5 runs and 7 hits, while Cook stopped the Redhawks cold in his 2+ innings. He struck out 4 batters and got his first save.
Far Mountain took an early lead and led 4-3 going into the bottom of the sixth. The Athletics jumped on reliever Vincent Moore for 4 runs and were never headed again.
With the victory Glasco moves up to second place with a 5-2 seasonal mark. The Redhawks are now 4-3 and in the third place spot.

Vipers Win in 10 over Blasters
It was an up-and-down game for Valmara on the road at Coldfax's Mountain View Stadium. The Vipers leaped ahead 6-1 in the first four frames, only to see the Blasters deadlock it at 6-6 after six. Valmara cashed in on Robby Smith's 3 walks in the top of the tenth to win 7-6. The winning run came in on a passed ball by catcher Howie Peterson.
In relief Andre Trepanier (1-0) fired 2-hit ball over 3 innings for the win with help from Zarek Zalewski in the ninth. Zalewski is a regular starter, but was called into duty by Viper manager J. Jackson Samuel. Smith (0-1) caught the loss for Colfax.
Valmara's offense was provided by first baseman Rickey O'Reilly, shortstop Mike Ellefson and catcher Yoshi Motsuzuki. All of them homered and had 2 RBIs apiece.
The Vipers are in first place in the RBU North with a 6-1 record. Colfax is now 3-4 and in fourth place in the division standings.

South Division

Morse and 'Jacks Stun Marston with Walk-Off HR
Bob Lowe (1-1) was cruising along into the ninth with a 4-3 lead, but then the roof caved in. The Marston hurler gave up two homers and fell to Forest City 6-4. With one away first baseman Ricky Mitchell tied it with a solo shot. Lowe got the second out, but gave up a single to pinchhitter Karl Labrie. Then lead-off hitter, Ryan Morse stunned everybody at Riverside Stadium with a 2-run walk-off homer to win the game.
After giving up 3 runs to the Lumberjacks in the first inning on a Chuck Hill homer, Lowe shut them out over the next seven. It was his first loss this season. The winning pitcher was Herm Bahr, who relieved starter Gene Stuart with one out in the seventh, trailing 4-3. He stopped the Nine the rest of the way. Bahr is now 1-2 on the season. Catcher Mo Chappell led the Marston attack with a double and single in 3 at-bats and 3 RBIs.
First place Marston's record dipped to 6-2, while last place Forest City improved to 2-5.

Wilson, Zanelli Combine to Beat Rattlers
Sunbird skipper Marty Pedrosa was proud of his pitchers today as Troy Wilson (1-0) and Lou Zanelli combined to scatter 8 hits in the 4-1 decision over Sugar Valley. Wilson tossed 7 innings and checked the Rattlers on 1 run and 7 hits with no walks and 4 strikeouts. Zanelli got his second save with two scoreless innings. Loser Harvey Hines (0-1) went the distance for Sugar Valley and yielded a dozen hits, but only 3 earned runs.
In the 2-run fifth Denny Everhart tied the game at 1-1 with a double and Marty McDermott put Belair Beach in front for good with an RBI-single. Erik Kesler finished out the scoring with a 2-run double in the eighth. Sugar Valley only run came on a lead-off homer by Jorge Vargas in the first frame.
The second place Sunbirds have won 5 and dropped 2 this season. The Rattlers stand at 4-3 and hold the number three spot in the RBU South division.

Westerners Rally Late, Whip Diamonds 8-7
Two of the best managers in the IPA matched wits today at Westerner Field and McGraw Johnson's Westerners staged a late-inning comeback to beat Stacy Engel's Claxton Diamonds 8-7. Waleska tied it up at 7-7 with a 4-run eighth, then won it in the last of the ninth, when losing pitcher Chris Gallagher (0-1) couldn't handle an easy toss at first. Johnson used one of his starting rotation in relief. Smokey Joe Carter (1-2) pitched a scoreless ninth to get the victory.
Both clubs swatted 12 hits each in the game. LF Charley Williamson got his 3rd homer of the season and paced the Westerners with 4-for-5 and 2 RBIs. He scored 3 times. RF Dixie Baker clubbed his 3rd home run and drove in 2 for the Diamonds.
Johnson's Westerners are fourth so far with a 3-5 record and Engel's Claxton club is tied for the basement and has a 2-5 mark.

Agreed, but the stats, discussing who's hot and cold and kind of going into more stat/trend detail or background about big games so far, etc., let you get to that point, I think.

Regardless, you've got my interest and I'll be watching. Good luck!

Good stuff Eugene. I was wondering about the standings and league leaders. If maybe you could update those every two weeks in the schedule. At the least, the end of the month. Outside of that, I'm enjoying this.

I intend to post standings and league leaders every two weeks or so.

I just have learn how to post screenshots from the game to do it.

That would make it much easier.

Tycobbian Baseball Union

East Division

Ninjas Matsumoto Masters SF 4-1
Ginza manager Huroko Uchiyama thinks he has a jewel in 25-year old Kojiro Matsumoto. The little 5'7" righthander chalked up his second straight win this season by stopping South Fork 4-1 on a 6-hitter. The junkballer walked 5 and fanned only 2 as he finessed his way past the Stallions. The Ninjas were sparked offensively by shortstop Shinjiro Aoki with 2 hits in 5 tries, including a 2-run triple. Right fielder Charley Campbell and left fielder Earl Conley drove in the other two runs.
Both teams find themselves in the division basement at 3-4, two games behind the TBU East leader, the Hartsdale Hellcats.

Hellcats Roar Back on Abreu's 3-Run HR
Francisco Abreu's 3-run blast in the top of the eighth put Hartsdale ahead 6-3, but his skipper Zim Donner had to endure some shaky relief pitching before the Hellcats managed to hold off the plucky Luxora Zorros 6-5 at De la Vega Stadium. The Z's had a lot of opportunities to break the game open as they left 13 runners on base. In the late innings Phil Reed tried hard to give them the game, permitting 3 hits and 2 walks in 1+ inning. Reed (2-0) was the winning pitcher, while starter Francisco Fernandes (0-1) went down to defeat. The 6'6" southpaw allowed 6 runs in 7 innings. Gene Young labored, but survived several serious threats in the last two frames. It was his first save this season.
Luxora outhit the Hellcats 12 to 8 with Tom Fortunato and Eric Richter bashing 3 hits each. Abreu was Hartsdale's most productive batter with 2-for-3 with 2 runs scored and 3 batted in.
With the victory Hartdale held on to the TBU East top position with a 5-2 mark, one game ahead of Ozarka, while Luxora falls to last place at 3-4 and into a four-way tie.

Nats Hang On, Get By 'Canes 8-6
Ozarka won the game at Seaside Stadium in Cape Coral, but the Hurricanes made them sweat a little bit with a 5-run rally in the bottom of the ninth. Until then Louie Ray (1-1) seemed headed to an easy win. The Naturals had given him an 8-1 lead going into Cape Coral's last at-bat. 4 hits and an error quickly closed the gap to 8-6 with one out. At that point, closer Jackie Cunningham relieved Ray and retired the last two batters to end the uprising.
Ozarka was led by C Billy Gibson with 3-5 and 2 RBIs, 2B Duane Starr 2-4, CF Teddy Braun 2-3 and Ray, who went 2-4 with a double and a homer and 2 RbIs.
The Hurricanes big hitter was LF Eric Smith with a double, homer and 3 RBIs.
Ozarka's victory moved them up into second place with a 4-3 record, one game off the pace of first place Hartsdale in the TBU East. Cape Coral slipped to 3-4 and are in a four-way tie for last place.

West Division

Lynx Pounce On Bucs 9-4
Hitting was the order of the day for La Claire as the Lynx lashed out 13 hits in a 9-4 romp over Bay St. Clair. 3B Luis Marquez and 2B Darrell Boyce hammered 2-run homers to pace the La Claire attack. 1B Al Tisak also drove in 2 runs. On the mound Jerry Smith (2-0) was adequate, going the distance, while allowing 9 hits. It was his second successive victory. Gary Robinson (1-1) toiled in defeat for the Buccaneers and was belted for 5 runs and 6 hits in 4 innings, but only 2 were earned.
The Lynx kicked their season mark up 6-1 and hold the top spot by two games in the TBU West race. Bay St. Clair's record is 2-5 and the Bucs are in last place.

Dalton Twirls 5-Hitter, Frogs Beat Arlon
Young Jimmy Dalton (1-0) was the whole show at the Frog Pond in Fairfax as he tamed Arlon 4-2 for his first IPA victory. The 23-year-old lefty stopped the Champs on just 5 hits, fanned 4 and walked nobody in a very impressive outing. Center fielder Gregg Vincent provided all the runs he needed with a 3-run blast in the first inning. Shortstop Warren Lee added a solo roundtripper for the Frogs in the fifth. Both of them came off losing pitcher Erik Fitrakis (0-1), who was tagged for 5 hits and 4 runs in 5 innings.
Both clubs have compiled identical 4-3 records in the Tycobbian Baseball Union West this season and are in second place, two games off the pace of the first place La Claire Lynx.

Blue Sox Bomb Viks with 5 HRs
5 homers and 15 hits made it easy for Blue Lake as they bombed Bayview 10-4. The Blue Sox were led by 1B Fred Taranto with 3 hits, including a pair of home runs and LF Donnie Frazier with a home run among his 3 hits. 2B Ken Bennett and 3B Timmy Smith also hit roundtrippers. Pete Henry (1-1) went 5 innings for his first win this season. He gave up 2 runs and 6 hits and left because of a rain delay. Jesus Carvajal (0-1) lost it, being shelled for 4 runs in 2 innings.
It was Blue Lake's second win this year against 5 losses. Bayview is 3-4. The Blue Sox are in last place in the TBU West division and trail the La Claire Lynx by four games and the Vikings are in the third spot, 3 games out .

Ruthlandian Baseball Union

RBU North Division

Darby Fires Another Shutout
Young lefthander Charles Darby (2-0) of the Glasco Athletics fired his second successive shutout and blanked Far Mountain 3-0 on 5 hits, struck out 7 and walked just 1 in another superlative outing. A's skipper McDuffie Hughes say the stocky 21-year-old pitcher is pure magic on the mound. "I've never seen such poise in a youngster in all my years in baseball." The Redhawks got a good start from John Luzzatti (0-1), who yielded only 2 runs and 7 hits in 7 innings. Luzzatti allowed no earned runs in the defeat. Glasco's first sacker Lou McCarley banged out 3 hits in 4 at-bats and drove in 2 runs. Second baseman Barry McCord went 2-for-4 with an RBI.
Glasco improved to 6-2 on the year, while Far Mountain dropped to 4-4 in the RBU North race. The A's are tied for first in the RBU North with the Valmara Vipers. The Redhawks are in third place tie with the Colfax Blasters.

Vipers Manning Stops Blasters
Valmara's stylish lefty Harry Manning fashioned a fine 5-3 victory over Colfax at the Diamonds home field at Mountain View Stadium. He tossed a 4-hitter for his first win of the season. A 4-run outburst in the fourth, highlighted by Pat Lott's base-clearing bases-loaded double, put the Vipers in the winner's circle.
Chuck Kowalczyk (1-1) sustained the loss, allowing 4 runs and 5 hits in 4 innings. Manning (1-0) gave up only 1 earned run, struck out 3 and issued 5 bases on balls.
Valmara pushed their record to 6-2 to tie the Glasco Athletics for the top position in the RBU North. Colfax dipped to 4-4 and remained in the third spot, tied with the Far Mountain Redhawks.

All-Stars Sneak by Vigilantes 4-3
For the second day in a row Stevie Howard got the call from the bullpen and for the second straight day he did his job -- he saved the game for Elnora. The All-Stars sneaked by Volusia at home 4-3. Quincy Peterson and Art Atkins both belted 2-run homers to account for the scoring and manager Zoggy White got some excellent relief pitching from Wally Tidwell and Howard. They held the Vigilantes scoreless over the last 3 innings. The victory went to starter Troy Hudson (1-1), who hurled 6 innings, gave up 5 hits and 3 runs. Lee Flores (0-2) went the route for Volusia and lost another game. He allowed 7 hits, 4 runs, fanned 3 and walked 2. The V's center fielder Domingo DeLeon went 2-for-5, including a home run.
Fifth place Elnora ran their record to 3-5 on the year in the RBU North Division, while cellar-dwelling Volusia continued to struggle at 1-7.

RBU South Division

FC Pounds Marston Nine
The Forest City Lumberjacks made the Riverside Stadium crowd happy today with an easy 10-4 triumph over the first place Marston Nine. The 'Jacks unleashed a 14-hit barrage with Pops Keller, Chuck Hill, Ryan Morse and Jesse Wolf leading the attack. Keller drove in 4 runs, Hill 3 and Wolf 2. Morse slammed a homer, had 4 hits in 5 tries and scored 4 times. Forest City got decent pitching, too, from Ernie Hill (1-1). The young 21-year-old southpaw pitched a complete game, scattering 9 hits, permitting 4 runs, fanning 4 and walking 3. Only 3 runs were earned.
For the season first place Marston falls to 6-3 in the RBU North Division and fifth place Forest City improved to 3-5.

Rattlers Rip Sunbirds 14-7
Sugar Valley didn't outhit Belair Beach, but they certainly made the most of their hits to win in a runaway 14-7. The Rattlers had 14 hits to the Sunbirds 15, but they had 7 extra base hits to only 2 for Belair Beach. LF Paul Winston headed the list of hitters with 3-3, including 2 doubles, 3 RBIs and 3 runs scored, RF Karl Dietz had 3 doubles, a new IPA record, and 2 RBIs and 3B Jorge Vargas went 3-for-5, scored 4 and drove in one. Top batters for the Sunbirds were CF Marty McDermott 3-5 and 3 runs scored, 2B Rick Sullivan 3-5, 2 RBIs and 2 runs and Danny Church 2-5 with 2 RBIs.
Ricky Fox(1-0) got the win, but it was a struggle. He gave up 7 runs on 14 hits before being relieved with two outs in the ninth by Jay Washington. Belair Beach got to him for 5 runs in the final three frames. Slim Mosley (1-1) took the loss and was gone by the second inning, being ripped for 6 runs.
Both clubs are tied for the number two spot in the RBU South standings with 5-3 records.

Westerners Carter Blanks Claxton
Waleska's Smokey Joe Carter had his stuff working well today and he crafted a 3-0 shutout victory over the Claxton Diamonds at Westerner Field. Carter (2-2) blanked them on 7 hits, while fanning 3 and walking 2. Home runs accounted for all of the Westerners runs. SS Wiz Taylor hit a one-run shot in the third and 2B Yoshihide Nishida smacked a 2-run job in the fifth, both off losing pitcher Terry Kuznetzov (0-2).
In the RBU South race Waleska is now 4-5 and Claxton is 2-6. The Westerners are in fouth place, while the Diamonds are in the basement.

Tycobbian Baseball Union

TBU East Division

3 HR for Betancourt, CC Slugs Nats 13-7
What a game Roberto Betancourt had at Seaside Stadium in Cape Coral. The hard-hitting Hurricane second basement had a record-setting day with 3 home runs and 8 RBIs, both new IPA marks. That made it easy for Cape Coral to defeat the Ozarka Naturals 13-7. Kaz Hayagawa (2-0) ran out of gas at the end, but manage to get credit for the win, although surrendering 7 runs on 10 hits. Only 4 of the runs were earned. Scotty Lohmeyer got the final two outs of the game. Loser Emile Leduc (0-2) continues to struggle as he gave up 8 runs in less than 4 innings.
Both teams are 4-4 for the season. They are tied with Ginza and Luxora for second place in the TBU East, one game behind first place Hartsdale.

Zorros Zap Hellcats 7-4
Luxora got a good effort from Chris Pierce to get the best of the Hartsdale Hellcats 7-4. Pierce worked 6 innings and held the Hellcats to 2 runs and 4 hits before being removed for a pinchhitter with the score 7-2. Shaky relief from Roberto Martinez narrowed it to 7-4 in the eighth inning. Luis Gomez came in and got out of a bases-loaded jam, then retired Hartsdale 1-2-3 in the ninth. Three solo roundtrippers from Paul Hallenbeck, Claudio Ordonez and Eric Richter sparked the Zorros victory. Richter has a perfect 4-4 day. Roger Graves (0-2) caught the loss as he was rapped for 4 runs and 6 hits in just two innings.
The Hellcats hold the top spot in the TBU East race with a record of 5-3 and Luxora is tied for second with Cape Coral, Ozarka and Ginza. All are 4-4 and trail Hartsdale by a game.

Ninjas Win Pitcher's Duel 2-1 Over Stallions
Ginza only got 4 hits in the game, but they made the most of them with a 2-1 decision over South Fork. Southpaw Toshiya Tamura (1-0) outpitched a trio of Stallion pitchers. He was touched for 9 hits, but spread them out enough to whip them. Tamura had 7 strikeouts and 3 walks in the win. Jamie Kelly started and gave up only 3 hits and a run in 6 innings. He departed for a pinchhitter in the seventh with the score tied a 1-all. Billy Joe Gordon lost it in the last of the seventh when the first batter he faced, Takashi Fujimoto cranked it into the stands for the deciding run. The Ninja first baseman also drove in a run in the fourth.
Ginza evened its season mark at 4-4 and is tied for second in the TBU East standings with Ozarka, Luxora and Cape Coral. South Fork plummeled to 3-5 and rests last in the division, 2 games behind leading Hartsdale.

TBU West Division

5 Runs in 7th Wins It for Lynx
La Claire broke open a 2-2 ballgame with 5 runs in the eighth to dump Bay St. Clair 7-2. Wildness on the part of reliever Johnny Nikolsky led to the Buccaneers demise. A hit-batsman and 2 walks filled the bases with no outs to set the stage for Darrell Boyce to clear the bases with a double. The Lynx added two more scores before Ken Kazak could get them out. Portsider Andy Murray (1-0) secured the win with two scoreless frames. La Claire starter Nick Pilsner allowed 11 hits in 7 innings, but pretty much kept Bay St. Clair off the scoreboard. Bucs starter Ben Crowley pitched well with 7 Ks in 7 innings, 8 hits and only 2 runs. Nikolsky (0-1) got the loss.
The La Claire Lynx are on top of the TBU West Division with 7 wins in 8 games thus far this season. The Bucs are 2-6 and in a last place tie with Blue Lake.

Frogs Hang On to Beat Champs 6-5
Fairfax bent, but didn't break as they edged Arlon 6-5 at the Frog Pond. Winning pitcher Mel Murray (1-1) was sailing along with a 6-2 lead going into the ninth, when he wavered badly and gave up 3 runs. But closer Takehide Takahashi put a stop to the rally and got his second save of the season. The Frogs were led by CF Gregg Vincent, who hammered a homer and a triple to drive in 3 runs. He now has 5 home runs for the year, the most in the IPA. 1B Stan Cobb also chipped in a solo shot. The Champions had 3 homers, one each by CF Jerry Keller, LF Matt Murrill and 1B George Lyons. Keller has hit 4 into the stands this year.
Lefthander Pete Edgar (0-1) hurled 5 innings and allowed 5 hits and 4 runs to get the defeat.
Fairfax is in the second spot in the TBU West with a mark of 5-3, two games behind La Claire. Arlon has put up 4-4 record and is in third place with Bayview.

Viks Wells Whips Blue Sox 5-3
Righthander Frank Wells of the Bayview Vikings whipped Blue Lake 5-3 today at a full house at Downtown Plaza Stadium. Wells (2-0) went the distance and checked the Blue Sox on 7 hits, while he whiffed 2 and walked 4. Losing pitcher Travis Gallagher (0-1) also pitched the entire game and gave up a dozen hits. 1B Dwayne Coleman was a big thorn for Gallagher as he slammed a pair of homers and drove in 3 runs for the Viks. Coleman has belted 4 out of the park this season so far. SS Shorty Richards went 3-4 and got the other 2 RBIs.
In the TBU West Division race Bayview is all even at 4-4 and Blue Lake is now 2-6. The Vikings are tied for fourth with Arlon, 3 games back of first place La Claire. The Blue Sox are stuck in the cellar with Bay St. Clair, 5 games behind.
