Moby Drugs and Lockie and Nowachek Family Chiropractors ended the Over the Hill Gang regular season with a fantastic game. Moby took a quick 4-0 lead, but L&N answered and each team had the lead throughout the game.
L&N took a 16-10 lead into the last inning when Moby struck back for 6 runs to tie the game 16-16. L&N had the top of their order in the bottom of the 9th but their first two batters lined out.
With two outs, Mike Quigley hit a single. Rich Apollo followed with a double putting runners on 2nd and 3rd. Moby then intentionally walked Butch Flecker to load the bases.
Next up was Tim Jones, L&N’s player/manager, who ran the count to 3-2. Jones then lined a single to center to win the game.
In addition to Jones’ heroics, L&N got a home run from Tommy Joseph. Quigley also went the distance for the win after limited pitching appearances during the season.

For the game, Fischer had 3 hits. Mazza, Hernandez, and Dittmeier had 2 each. In the field, 3rd baseman Sean O’Flynn and 2nd baseman Rich D’Amico handled everything hit their way to support winning pitcher Brian Tinney
