Seasoned Players

Another beautiful evening for week No. 2 of the Seasoned Players matching Village Pharm and Mueller Builders.

Village Pharm ripped out 25 hits with Greg Streit going four for four and scoring four times. Zach Paul was four for four and he scored three times. Dave “Meat Man” Smith, Tyler “The New Sheriff in Town” Geske went three for four scoring thrice. John Peterlik batted three for five with three doubles.

“Dizz where are you!!” No stats turned in for Mueller Builders. Final score Village Pharm 15 and Mueller Builders 4.

Next Edgar Lanes played Bean’s Evergreen Disposal on the new diamond.

Lead Off Man Dan started the game for the Lanes with a single. Tom and Bob the Vet also hit singles to score Dan for the Lanes first lead of the 2020 season. Beans came back in the bottom of the first scoring seven runs.

Beans scored two more runs in the second and another two in the fourth making the score Beans 11, Edgar Lanes 1 going into the top of the fifth. Crazy Legs Chuck scored for the Lanes in the fifth but that was the end of the scoring for the Lanes. Final score Bean’s 14, Edgar Lanes 2.

The Lanes had six hits and left four on base. Dan the Man, Tom, Adam, Bob the Vet, Crazy Legs Chuck and Whitey had hits for the Lanes.

No stats turned by Bean’s Evergreen Disposal. Those stat sheets must have been “disposed of.”

Werner Insurance and Landmark Bar were next on the dia- mond in what turned out to be a very interesting game.

Not sure how it all happened but it wasn’t a good ending of a pretty good game for Werner Insurance. Dave led the team with four hits and two runs scored. Werner’s scored 10 runs in the third to have a comfortable lead but that slipped away in the seventh giving up seven runs. By the second inning Werners had a comfortable lead at 11-0.

In the fourth, Landmark got things rolling. After two outs the Gobbler got things going with a hit. It led to nine more consecutive hits and nine runs.

Werners got three in the sixth and Landmark one, score 14-9. With one out Landmark got it rolling again, nine hits in a row and six runs. Rich drove in the winner when the throw to home was late with Darrell hustling all the way.

Landmark had 29 hits which might be a league record. The five thru 11 batters were on base 23 out of 28 at bats. Fleabag and Roy led the way going four for four. Gobbler, Andy, John and Shanny went three for four. John and Roy scored three runs each. Final score Landmark 15 and Werner Insurance 14. Next matched up two perennial power houses, Strobes Garage and Louie/Werner.

It was great to see Jerry Werner give moral support to his team. The stats turned in were as depressing as the actual stats. Louie/Werner scored two runs in the first and only had nine stinking hits. “We Lost.”

No stats turned in for Strobes Garage and yet another case of writer’s block. Final score Strobes Garage 5 and Louie/Werner 2.

The night cap was Round of Mulligans and Chad’s Auto.

In a quest for a undefeated season, the Mullies gave it a stellar effort. The Mullies managed only 11 hits and stranded eight. The defense played another excellent game by only allowing Chads to score in only two innings. Some bad hops and a few solid hits were the downfall.

John “The knee brace man” and Heath “Fruit of my loins” both went two for three with Heath ripping a triple only to be stranded on third. Bean had triple, Chewy and Terry “El Presdientee” had a double.

For Chads, Rick opened the inning with a single. Chads took the lead and held off a seventh inning threat when the Mullies had one out with runners on first and second but pulled off a double play to end the game. Final score Chad’s Auto 6 and Round of Mulligans 4.

A few more names to be added to the pioneers of the Seasoned Players: Marvelous Marv Knetter who played for the Firemen and was one of the best left handed hitters on the team, Randy Hoenisch, Chucky “Margolis” Krebsbach and Steve Hack. Sorry for the memory lapse.

There are no games being played this Thursday, July 2.
