On a hot Saturday afternoon the Tigers faced off against the Mariners in an exciting 6-4 win by the Mariners. The Tigers took the lead in the bottom of the 1st with a walk by Andrew Chaung, followed by Brent Kane with a 2 run blast. Peter LoDuca reached on an error & stole second; Ryan Gaitan scored Peter with an RBI single. The Mariners scored a run in the 2nd & 2 more in the 3rd tying the game at 3. In the bottom of the 3rd Peter LoDuca reached safely & stole 2nd base then Chris Ianiro drove Peter in with a single to center field. The Tigers had a 4-3 lead going into the 6th inning, but the Mariners did not quit scoring 3 runs to take a 6-4 lead to win the game.

Dr. Anthony Citriniti Surf (4) Vs.
Virgilio Chiropractic Expos (8)
The Surf fell short of going to the Championship Game on Saturday by a score of 4 to 8 to the Expos. The team took a 4-0 lead but were held scoreless the remainder of the game and could not stop the Expos bats. The team achieved more than I believed they could finishing 3rd and coming within 1 game of the Championship Game. I am proud of all the kids and wish them the best in future games. Surf players who gave 100 percent each game were Michael Aronov, Troy Barocas, Troy Driscoll, Domenick Fazzolari, Domenico Fazzolari, Ace Goldstein, Anthony Grimaldi, John Grzmalski, Alexander Katz, Adrian Kwan, Jonathon Livers & Paul Reo. Congrats Expos! Thanks to our sponsor Dr. Anthony Citriniti, Doc, we tried to bring home the trophy, maybe next year.

The Stutzmann Funeral Home
Road Warriors (6)
Vs. Hillside Beverage Cyclones (3)
The Warriors battled the division winning, well coached & talented Cyclones, holding on for the win. Once again Rob Scatorchio carried the team going 2 for 3 with a homerun & 4 RBI's and pitching a gem through the first 3 innings with 5 K's while surrendering only 1 run. David Luchino continues to hit the ball hard going 2 for 3 with a run scored & 1 RBI and kept the Cyclones off balance pitching the last 3 innings with 4 K's. Leadoff hitter Kevin Gagnon (2 for 3) scored twice while playing super defense in the outfield. Matt Dillon was solid behind the plate and smashed a RBI double. The play of the game (of the year) went to Nicky Clifford who made an all out dive of a hot grounder ending a Cyclone rally in the 3rd. Louis Simione (1 for 3) was solid at 3rd base, as was Matt Miller (OF), Pat McGonigle (walk, run scored) (OF), Harris Rivkin (OF) and handling the duties over at 1st base was steady Dan Spratt. Next up the Sharks! Hats off to the Cyclones for a terrific season! Go Warriors!

The Stutzmann Funeral Home
Vs. The Liebell Family River Sharks
Hats off to the "Champion River Sharks" who totally dominated the Warriors in this game. After defeating 2 extremely talented teams the Warriors seemed to be on a roll but the wheels fell off against the Sharks. However, on the bright side after finishing the season in 5th place what we were able to accomplish in the playoffs and being able to take the 2nd place trophy was a total team effort and nothing to be ashamed of. All of the Warriors contributed to the turn around and were; Robert Scatorchio, David Luchino, Matt Dillon, Louis Simione, Nicky Clifford, Danny Spratt, John Fitzgerald, Pat McGonigle, Kevin Gagnon, Matt Miller, Harris Rivkin and Johnny Mahon. Coaches Rich, Mike and I would like to thank the players and parents for a fantastic season and playoff run. Way to go Warriors!
