Ridgewood Savings Bank Rockies vs. Gigi’s Pizzeria Brewers

The week off due to rain created a small setback for the Brewers bats in the early innings. Paul Depaulis put some runs on the board with a bases clearing triple. Justin Yang added to the run production with a RBI single and Daniel Goldberg added 2 more with a double to right center field. Anthony Devito added one more RBI in the fifth helping the Brewers get back into the game. The defense  kept the game close. Cenzo Montoni made 2 good plays at second, Abidin Dauti completed a 5 to 3 put out, Mathew Merolla made a great scoop of a ball in the dirt at first, Daniel Mattei hit the cutoff man preventing a run from scoring and Mathew Stroccha played well at first to complete a 4 to 3 put out.. The game came down to the bottom of the sixth with the Brewers down by two. Christian Zammora started the rally with a base hit. Paul Depaulis and Cenzo Montoni managed to get on base  setting it up for Darren Yang. With two strikes, he kept his cool and blasted a bases clearing triple. The Brewers showed their team spirit by celebrating with Darren and of course acknowledged the Rockies for a great game. Hats off to both teams for a great game!!
