October 27th

World Series Report from Tempe, AZ

Rich Connor, and myself, played for Team Easton in the 35+ American wood bat division this past week in Phoenix in the MSBL World Series. We won our division, with a 8-1 record, winning our last 7 games. Rich had a complete game victory, and a save, while hitting over .300. I caught 4 games, was the DH in 3 games, and I pitched one game, which we won. (I left in the 8th with a 9-2 lead, we gave it up, and won in the bottom of the 9th), hit .461 for the tournament.  It was Rich's first Championship ring, and my 4th with this team. Overall a good week.--Eric Exner, Dodgers

Semi Finals:  Mets 8  Tigers 10

Semi Finals:  Old Style 3  Dodgers 14
The first game started a little slow for the Dodgers. Old Style opened up with 3 runs at the top of the first inning. The Dodgers responded by scoring 9 in the bottom of the inning. They had 7 hits, 2 walks, and a fielders choice in the inning. Everyone in the lineup scored in the first inning for the Dodgers. Scott Kring, the starting pitcher for the Dodgers, settled down after the first, and only allowed 2 hits after the first inning, with a complete game 14-3 victory. Offensively, the Dodgers were led by Jim Enneking, who went 3-3, scored 2 runs with a stolen base. Scott Kring went 2-3, with a triple, while Eric Exner, Matt McBeth, chipped in with 2 hits apiece as well. The Dodgers totaled 13 hits in the run rule shortened game.
Game 2 - Finals  Tigers 8  Dodgers 10
The Dodgers started game 2 by continuing their hot hitting. They used 5 hits, and one walk to score 5 runs in the bottom of the first to jump out to an early 5-0 lead. That seemed to take a little of the life out of the Dodgers as they were shut out for the next 2 innings as the Tigers battled back by scoring 3 in the second inning, and 2 more in the top of the 3rd to tie the game. Then the Tigers scored another 3 runs to take a 8-5 lead to the bottom of the 4th inning where the Dodgers regained their hitting stroke. Tim Srader led off the inning with a single, after a fly out by Troy Steiner, 5 out of the next 6 Dodgers had hits. This was highlighted by a triple that Don Prim was able to stretch into a double, to score Jim Enneking with the 4th run of the inning. The Dodgers were able to tack on another run in the fifth, to set the final score of 10-8.
The Dodgers were led offensively again by Jim Enneking who had 4 hits, with a pair of doubles, and 2 RBIs, Scott Kring, Troy Steiner, Zacc Arnold, and Eric Exner also collected a pair of hits each. The Dodgers totaled 15 hits during the game. Defensively, the Dodgers were led by Sam Steinberg with some stellar defense at 2nd base, and starting pitcher, Scott Kring, who went the distance again, for the Dodgers. Kring was named Tournament MVP for his 2 win performance on the day.--Eric Exner, Dodgers

Final:  White Sox 2  Cubs 7

The Cubs had been a strong contender all season long.  The White Sox began the season as a long shot to even make the playoffs having been a .500 team through mid-season.  The second half of the season saw the Sox surge behind solid pitching efforts and some timely hitting.  With nothing to lose, the Sox gave a valiant effort against the hard-hitting Cubs.  The game was tied 2-2 going into the 7th inning after a solid performance by White Sox pitcher, Evan Neiser, who struck out 11 Cub batters through 5 innings.  It looked as if the White Sox would actually have a chance in this game.  However, Evan had to leave his post to get to work on time, so he left things up to his normally capable bullpen of Mark Taylor and Tom Spaniol.  Taylor pitched well, but was victimized by a few untimely defensive errors by a few aging White Sox.  Spaniol relieved Taylor, but the Cubs punched in a few runs late in the bottom of the eighth to finish things up 7-2.  Davie Copeland gets the victory for the Cubs and earns the MVP honors.--Stephen Boudreaux, White Sox

White Sox 8  DBacks 1

In round one of the playoffs, the 2/3 seed matchup included the DBacks that were virtually tied for first place at the end of the regular season and the surging White Sox.  The DBacks are deep with solid hitting, excellent defense and pitching.  The game started off with the Sox at bat playing a little small-ball.  Anthony Osborne reached on an error by DBack 3B, Randy.  Tom Spaniol executed a perfect sac bunt to move Osborne over.  Dustin Wilson moved Osborne in on a rope single and Andy Miller followed him up with a 2-run homer to start the game off 3-0 White Sox.  Then the ball was given to White Sox hurler, Evan Neiser.  Evan proceeded to have "a day" on the mound striking out 15 DBacks in 7 complete innings allowing 5 scattered hits all late in the game and only one earned run.  Evan's location was perfect as he was placing pitches wherever Andy Miller placed his mitt.  The White Sox offense gave Evan all he needed in the first, but continued to plate runners led by Andy Miller's two home runs (2-3, 2HR, 3RBI), Dustin Wilson (3-4, RBI), Stephen Boudreaux (2-3), Robert Foshe (2-3, RBI), and a surprising Masashi! Yoshimoto (2-3, RBI, BB) who had a great defensive day ending the game with put out in right field.  The Sox have their work cut out for them next week with the seemingly undefeatable Cubs looming.--Stephen Boudreaux, White Sox

 

Brewers W  Marlins L

Brewers 4  Cubs 10

I only saw the Brewers/Marlins game from the other field, but it seemed to be over very quickly.  Not sure of the final score, but I hope to have that information back soon.  In the 4/1 seed matchup, I watched the entire game and it was a very solid performance by the initially short-handed Cubs.  As strong as the Brewers lineup is, it says a lot for the Cubs to constantly keep coming at them.  I won't be able to name names here, but I witnessed some web-gem defensive plays in the outfield and infield.  A nice grab by Jamie Thorton at 2B comes to mind on a line drive to kill a Brewer threat.  A towering home run by Cub, Justin Ledbetter.  Some fine relief pitching by Brewer, Matt Villines and Cub, Jerrell Walker.  Sit-in for the Cubs was DBacks skipper, Heath Robinson.  Heath went at least 2-3 on the day against strong Brewer pitching and played solid first base.  This all while he forwent his playing time with his own team in the early game to allow more for his rostered players.  Kudos to Heath for helping out when the Cubs had one of their players in the ER just prior to game time.  It should be an interesting matchup between the Cubs and White Sox.  Stay tuned...--Stephen Boudreaux, President

It was probably the most beautiful weekend of the year and we could only muster four teams on Sunday and four on Saturday.  Probably a sign of the season when football begins to dominate our thoughts.  That said, we still have some strong competition left as we get ready for the playoffs in both the 18+ and the 25+ divisions. 

 In 18+ action, two of the tightest games on the 2008 record came between the Cubs and the DBacks.  These two teams locked it up dead even in the Arklahoma Shootout back in August and today was no different.  Led by excellent pitching on both sides and some web-gem defensive efforts (saw a layout diving catch turned into a double-play by Dbacks center-fielder from just beyond the centerfield fence), both games ended in one-run victories.  From what I could see from the other field, there were a lot of runners left on base, so that attests to typically good hitting by both squads as well as step-up pitching and defense as an answer.

The other series was a different tale all together.  The surging White Sox held off the sometimes surprising Braves in a pair of routs.  In game one, Evan Neiser continued his excellence by throwing a 5-inning no-hitter with 10 strikeouts and only a pair of walks to blemish the perfect game chance.  Game two was Mark Taylor's chance.  Taylor finally got some offensive support that he has been lacking all season long.  And it came in droves.   He threw a 3-hitter with 9 strikeouts in only four innings before the game was called by field umpire Dennis Collier in a "mercy" effort.  Taylor's only blemish was a 325 foot home run over the 324 foot center-field fence.  Kudos to Tony Foshe, though, for hitting the fastball down the middle and making Taylor pay.  The White Sox offense took advantage of the pitcher-less Braves by going up 5-2 in the second inning.  In the third, Braves starter Caleb Smith quickly fell victim to some hot Sox bats and was pulled.  Matters worsened as the Sox scored 20 in the frame having gone one batter shy of three full rotations.  On the day, offensive standouts include Masashi Yoshimoto (2-5, 2BB, 3R, 3RBI),  Dave Battaglia (4-5, 5R, 3B, 1BB, 2RBI, SAC), Evan Neiser (2-4, 2R, 2RBI), Stephen Boudreaux (4-6, 3R, RBI, 1BB), and Andy Miller (3-5, 4R, 6RBI, 2K, GSHR). 

The playoffs start next week with the following four teams:  DBacks, Cubs, White Sox, and Marlins.  The format will be 1v4, 2v3 on both White River 1 and 2 respectively at noon on Sunday, October 5th.  The winners will face off at 3pmCST on White River field 1 for the title. 

Still awaiting the game report from the Dodgers/Tigers series, the Mets and Old Style slugged it out into extra innings during their game one action.  The second game wasn't as close, but I am sure both teams are ready to enter the post season.  The 25+ teams have one more week of regular season games and will play their championships on Saturday, October 11th at White River park in the same format as the 18+.--Stephen Boudreaux, President

The Braves and Marlins had heated battle as expected. The first game the Marlins took it to the Braves. 10-3. The Braves didn't play bad we just couldn't get runs on the board. The Braves didn't have a lot of trouble hitting the ball. Tony Foshe lead the Braves going 2-3 1HR double. Brian (Cubs) 1-2, Ronnie (Cubs) 0-1 HP and BB David (Cubs) 1-2 Barrett (River Valley) 1-3. We had a few pick up players from the Cubs who I appricate coming out to play ball with us. The second game was a different story. The Braves had no problems hitting the ball winning 11-3 with Brian (Cubs) hitting 2-3 with a grandslam and a double. The next batter David (Cubs) hitting 1-3 hitting a homerun. Ronnie (Cubs) 0-1 with 3 walks and 2 runs scored and Barrett (River Valley) going 0-2 with a walk.. So after all was said and done it was a great weekend for baseball. And once again I appreicate the Cubs for lending us some players. You guys were great. Anyway I hope every one had a great weekend and wish everyone the best of luck in the playoffs. --Tony Foshe, Braves

The Brewers and Cubs continue to mow down the competition during the first half thus far with the Spartans and Diamondbacks hot on their heels in 18+ league play.  Hopefully, we have seen the last of the forfeits this season and will start seeing full game-play going forward.  I expected challenges for high playoff seeds by the Lions and Marlins.  With those teams back on track, look for a little better parity in the second half.  The Arklahoma Shootout is set and ready to go in two weeks.  Strong teams from OKC, Memphis, LR, Jonesboro, and Tulsa are coming in to face NWAMSBL teams.  We look to be making a sizeable donation on behalf of the NWAMSBL to Pagnozzi Charities this year.  If your team is not involved in the Shootout, please come watch some games or help volunteer.  This tournament is a benefit to the charity, the community, and our local league so please help support this mid-season effort.--Stephen Boudreaux, President NWAMSBL

FINALLY A CLOSE GAME!  It seems that parity is off a bit this season.  Teams are either run-ruling opponents or teams are forfeiting their chances.  Not so at Reiff Park with the Strikers and White Sox.  On a beautifully warm afternoon, the struggling White Sox looked to find some chemistry heading into the mid-point of the season.  The White Sox had in the past week lost their two "ace" pitchers for the remainder of the season and are going to have to rely on some crafty veterans to pick up the pace.  In game one, lefty Mark Taylor took the hill against the still-up-and-coming Strikers.  The Strikers borrowed a couple of able bodies from the Cubs to help them field a competitive team and it showed.  While Taylor pitched a nice, complete game fanning 7 batters, things looked like they might be a little shaky having given up a dinger with the third pitch of the day.  The game seemed in hand, though with the Sox up 10-3 going into the 7th when a tired Taylor let four runs come across.  Coach Boudreaux made a nifty play on a slow roller to end the game showing distant signs of his former self.   Having turned 40 this year, it may be his last season in the 18+... Offensively, Andy Miller was 2-3 with 4RBI, Mike Lopez was 1-1 with 2BB, 3 Runs, 1RBI and a stolen base.

In game two, Tom Spaniol looked to douse any momentum the Strikers were building by striking out 11 batters and giving up only 5 meaningless hits in a complete game effort.  Tom's location was nearly perfect as he had a 2-hitter going into the 7th.  Anthony Osborne went 2-4 and scored 2 runs.  Coach Boudreaux was 3-4 with a run scored and 2RBI off borrowed pitching.  Highlights included an incredible infield base hit by Lyndall Bolinger whose hustle on a healing broken leg allowed him to beat the throw by sliding headlong into the bag.  Also, the game ended on a Travis Briggs laser beam throw down to second base to catch a runner off the bag.--Stephen Boudreaux, White Sox

Nelson was one for four.  McCater was the starting pitcher going the first three innings with three strike outs. Davis pitched the next three innings with one strike out. Nelson went one inning then Girdner finished the game by going the last two innings with two strike outs. Davis was the winning pitcher. The White Sox scored their runs in the final two inning for the final score of 13-3.

On Saturday the Tigers faced off against the Old Style on a great day for Baseball. Both teams were short a few players but we still had a great game with the Old Style coming out with the win. The tigers went with Greg on the hill and he pitched a complete game racking up 8 k's. The Old Style used three pitchers getting 5 k's. The game was back and forth all day until the 6th when the tigers pulled ahead with 4 runs off of a two run home run by Brian. The Old Style trailed by three into the bottom of the ninth were we stung a few hits together and came from behind to take the win with a final score of 11-10.--Aaron Hatfield, Old Style

Oklahoma Spartans Rout Arkansas Braves 28-1
Jimbo Harris, Peyton Nelson, Cody McCarter, and Seth Merrie all went 3-4 in the 28-1 win over the Arkansas Braves, Sunday.
Merrie's three-run homer scoring McCarter and Jarrett Tyler led the way in the six-run first inning. Nelson had the first RBI of the inning, sending Harris home on a double. The Spartans scored two more runs in the inning on Tyler's double, scoring McCarter and John Rozell.
The Spartans scored one run in the second inning as Jason Girdner's RBI single scored Miguel Ortiz. Ortiz had reached base on a hit by pitch. The Spartans then exploded for 11 runs in the third inning, sending 17 batters to the plate. Rozell started off with an RBI single scoring McCarter then Bucky Lamb scored Merrie on a single. Harris cleared the bases with a three run homer which cleared the right field fence, scoring Lamb and Rozell ahead of him. Girdner continued the hitting parade with a two RBI single that scored Nelson and Matt Maddox. The Spartans loaded the bases again when Rozell was hit by pitch, which forced David Stilwell home. Lamb followed with an RBI walk that scored McCarter. Ortiz scored Merrie with a single followed by a Maddox single that scored Lamb. Maddox scored on a fielder's choice for the final run of the inning and an 18-1 lead.

The Brewers took on the Spartans at Fayetteville High on a great day for baseball. The Brewers picked up right where they left off last year by beating the Spartans 11-4. There was a lot of hype going into the game as Spantan manager J D Higgins might have been a little over confident by promising a run rule on the defending champions. While it was an intense game, it was no where near the "real eye-opener for the league" as promised. Rick Elliott threw 7 strong innings and then turned it over to Cory Grist for the final 2 innings. Wayne Hrozek had a two run homerun and also an RBI single to lead the Brewers. Nick Makris had an RBI double off the wall in center to open the game up. The Spartans have many players with good sportsmanship and great talent, lead by Jason Girdner and Cody McCarter. We look forward to another match up against this good team in the future. Hopefully next time, Higgins is the one with his eyes open.--Rick Elliot, Brewers

The Oklahoma Spartans lost to the Fayettville Brewers 11-4 in the Northwest Arkansas Men's Senior Baseball League game Sunday at Fayettville.  The Spartans scored three runs in the third inning. Jimbo Harris of Tahlequah and Dave Stilwell and Payton Nelson both of Stilwell loaded the bases with three singes. Jason Girdner also from Tahlequah had an a two RBI double to score Harris ans Jarrett Tyler. Tyler the scored Nelson with a double.  Stilwell scored the fourth run of the game for the Spartans in the seventh inning on a balk. The starting pitcher for the Spartans was Bucky Lamb going the first four innings with five strike outs. Cody McCarter pitched the fifth and sixth innings with three strike outs. Girdner finished the game by pitching the seventh and eighth innings with three strike outs.  "We beat ourselves but I thought we played as well as expected since was our first game we played as a team. Our hitting was good, but right to someone. We just have to find the holes. When we do that we will score a lot of runs. Pitching wise we just need to find a set rotation, but all in all our pitching did good for our first game" said Coach J.D. Higgins Harris was the leading hitter for the Spartans with a 2-4 day at the plate. The next game for the Spartans will against the Arkansas Braves at White River Park in Fayettville Sunday June 22 at 3:00.--Lynn Womack, Tahlequah Daily Press

White Sox 5  Marlins 11

The opening day for the Marlins and White Sox looked to be a real tough battle  with the score 4-3 Sox into the top of the 6th and then 6-4 Marlins through the top of the 8th.  That's when things fell off for the Sox with the Marlins plating 5 in the bottom of the frame.  The Sox could only score one in the top of the 9th.  White Sox pitcher Evan Neiser pitched well through 6 to give the Sox a chance striking out 6 in the loss.   Mark Taylor relieved striking out 5.  Patterson for the Marlins struck out 7 White Sox batters in a strong effort to earn the win giving up only 4 scattered hits.--Stephen Boudreaux, White Sox
