On May 23, the T-Storms were on the North Shore, yet there were a hurricane of runs as Changing Times Pub improved to 4-1 beating a very tough and gritty La Corte Family Auto 26-9. The first few innings started as a pitcher’s duel with very few runs scored. But the 6th inning is when Hurricane CT began to take shape by scoring 8 runs led by Dave Thorburn (6-6) 2 RBI’s and Jimmy Cullen (4-5) with 5 runs scored. But that’s wasn’t all as the eye of the storm came through with another 4 runs in the 7th and another 8 runs in the 8th. Thanks to Joe Stephan (4-4) and our SS Larry Ortolani making diving stops and going (4-6) 3 RBI’s. But the game ball goes to Dave Chametzky for coming out of the bullpen and going (3-5) 1 RBI and holding a very offensive team like La Corte to only 9 runs.
