July 22, 2018 | 0 Comments

Any one of four teams could win the B Division as play comes down to the final two weeks of the regular season.

Platano Power went to the top of the division when they beat X-Bats 18 to 14. Platano has finished all its games and has a one-point lead over X-Bats, who has a game in hand. [A win is worth three points, a loss one point and a forfeit 0 points].

Albert Acevedo [4-4] hit a home run and drove in five in the victory. Teammate Ravi Gomez came off the bench to go 3-3, and both Juan Salas and Leonardo Silveira drove home four runs. Mark James [4-4] was perfect at the plate for X-Bats while his teammates Andrew Bonner, Brett Farlow and Robbie Bailey were all 3-4.

Hakuna Mata Charters also have a shot at the title after slipping past the Beach Bums 19 to 17. Hakuna is three points back with one game to play. In a back-and-forth contest, Hakuna kept their title hopes alive with two runs in the bottom of the sixth.

Multi-sports star Scott Barnes was 3-3 with a pair of homers and Shannon Raynor knocked home 6 RBI in the win. Eva Frazzoni [3-5] and Brian Hall [4-4] also had nice turns at the dish in the W.

Edward DeSilva got it done at the bottom of the lineup for Beach Bums with a hitting clinic at the plate as he was a perfect 3-3, with three homers and 6 RBI. Pitcher Chris Montgomery tried to help his own cause by going 3-4.

Hakuna Mata faces X-Bats at 7:30pm on Thursday. If X-Bats win, they take the division, if Hakuna wins they go into a tie for first with Platano and will have to wait for the outcome of the following week’s match between Chubb Kings and Team Smokey to see how the division spots fall out.

Chubb is the other team with title chances, and they beat Sunglass & Watch Shop 17 to 14 thanks to a dramatic walk-off homer by Les Dzwienka in the bottom of the seventh. Chubb is three points back with one game to play. It was Dzwienka’s second homer of the contest. Al Busby [3-4, 3 RBI], Kyle Smith [2-4, 5 RBI] and John Rolph [3-4, 2 RBI] all contributed to the triumph.

Adam Petty [3-4] and Steven Simons [3-4] did the bulk of the damage for Sunglass & Watch Shop as they plated four and six runs respectively. Sam Outerbridge [3-4] and Chris Sabean [3-3] also contributed to the Sunglass effort.

In A versus B Division games, Blue Wahoos reeled in a 32 to 8 triumph over the Corporation of Hamilton while Paraquet Flyers downed FIU Scared Hitless 21 to 12 and Docksiders extinguished Team Smokey 22 to 7.

Docksiders can complete their perfect season on Tuesday at 9 pm when they face winless Corporation of Hamilton.

Three clubs have a chance to lay claim to first place in the C Division.

Buffaloes slipped past Shooters 13 to 12 when Duncan Frith hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh. It was Frith’s second home run of the contest as he drove in six runs. Teammate Brent Giannone was 3-4, and Phil Froncioni was 2-3 with 2 RBI in the winning effort.

Shooters had scored three times in the top half of the seventh to give themselves an opportunity to win this match. Tyler Smith [3-3], Dylan DeSilva [4-5], and Jahrell Raynor [4-5] were the top bats for Shooters.

Buffaloes are 8-2 while Ragamuffins are 8-3 and Super Express is 7-4. Last week Raggamuffins beat Deloitte 28 to 22, and they also derailed Super Express 25 to 2 in a crucial match-up. None of the teams plays each other the rest of the way.

In the women’s division, Angels topped PHC Zebras 19 to 4. Angels are five points behind Hardknockz but will pick up a default victory against Outback Skylights. Angels and Hardknockz will face off for the division title on Wednesday at 9 pm. Harknockz won two of three previous meetings this season.

In the Corporate Division, Sea Venture Mini Me’s had a 26 to 11 mercy victory over Butterfield and Vallis Sliders. Sea Venture is 9-0 and needs one win its last three matches to take the division.

All games are played on Mondays through Thursday at Michael Preece Stadium at Bernard Park starting at 6pm.
