ROUND ONE

Bubba's 2 Subaba 1

Lazarus pitched a 1-hitter, giving up zero earned runs on a night where both pitchers silenced the bats of their opponents.

Lazarus and Subaba hurler David Samet matched pitch for pitch as Subaba was rendered impotent through 4 innings, and Bubba's having their only real threat erased by a double play with one out and runners on the corners.

Subaba got on the board first, turning 3 consecutive ground balls to 3rd in the top of the fifth into a run and what this writer feels was an ill advised out at home plate, but Bubba's struck right back in the bottom frame, as the comedy of errors continued with a pop up that was allowed to fall for a single and yet another infield error.
 
Bubba's took the‎ lead for good after once again getting runners on the corners with the help of an errant throw from third base (which really seemed to be the cold corner tonight) followed by a bloop single to drive in the run.

Subaba threatened in the top of the 7th, with a deep fly ball out to left followed by a SC Top-Ten catch by Avi Sofer in right field seeming to all but seal the deal, but consecutive walks had Subaba's tying run on 2nd. Lazarus then induced a routine fly ball to end the game, as Bubba's breathed a collective sigh of relief and expressed their gratitude to Lazarus for taking the team on their shoulders and picking up their limp bats.

Subaba now has to win Tuesday to stay alive, while Bubba's looks to finally get things going in anticipation of a series vs conglomerate NJAIM with a victory Tuesday and everything else going as expected.

 

Elchanan Tenembaum leads NJAIMto 10-2 win over Rockland Window Covering

Elchanan Tenembaum clubbed two home runs to carry NJAIM to a 10-2 win over Rockland Window Covering in seven innings.

Seven runs in the opening three innings allowed NJAIM to easily put away Rockland Window Covering. A three-run home run by Tenembaum during the first inning and an RBI single by Yaakov Bodner, , and an RBI single byNoam Block in the second inning helped NJAIM put some runs on the board early.

NJAIM hit three home runs in the win. Additional home runs for NJAIM came when Tenembaum homered in the first and third innings and Moshe Hans homered in the sixth inning.

NJAIM got one-run rallies in the third inning and the Sixth. In the third, NJAIM scored on a solo home run by Tenembaum.

NJAIM quickly matched Rockland Window Covering's strong inning with a two-run inning of its own in the fifth. NJAIM scored on An RBI single by Meir Stimmel and a sacrifice fly by Tenembaum.

 

Bubba's 11 Subaba 4

After an emotionally draining hard fought game Sunday night, brother faced brother in the second game of the first round playoffs last night with the stakes being particularly high for Subaba. Both pitchers started the game off hot, with Nesanel Moeller recording 3 strike outs for Bubba's in the first 3 innings, and David Samet inducing multiple ground balls, but after a couple of errors let Bubba's jump out to a 2 run lead. The left for dead Bubba's bats woke up, sparked by Yitzy Rosen's brief appearance (or the lack thereof) at the plate resulting in a booming triple in the LCF gap, and Bubba's took a 4-0 lead. More hits by Captain Katsoff and Rosen extended the lead to 8-0 in the 4th before Subaba came alive, with consecutive hits by Chaim Heinemann and David Samet culminating in 3 runs, cutting the lead to 5. Bubba's didn't stop there, plating another 3 runs with help from Yitzy Rosen's still free swinging stick (he would finish 3/3 on the night, and left with strict instructions regarding future wardrobe requirements). David Samet helped his own cause with a triple to right in the bottom of the 7th, coming around to score on the next batter, but it was too little too late as Bubba's completed the sweep and moved on to the next round.
 
Kudos to Kaption Kugelfresser, who led this team from the cellar of the league last year to 5th place this year, and really got the most out of this Subaba team missing 2 of their top hitters in this series due to injury. In the mind of this writer, he deserves serious Manager of the Year considerations, having not been helped with reinforcements during the season.
 
Bubba's will now await the results of the other 3 series to see who they will play, with even money being on a highly anticipated matchup with NJAIM although a Major Energy or Evergreen upset would change things.

Major Energy 6 Newday 0

Major Energy came out with a burst of energy tonight as Doni Katz blasted a home run to deep center to start off the bottom of the 1st inning.Jeff Astor added a hit and a big sacrifice fly,Mike Chasen had 2 hits, David Stimmel with a sacrifice fly, Avi Schwebel and Victor Fein with big hits to keep rallies going and Charlie Kleiner with a big infield hit to knock in a run. With a 4-0 lead after 2 innings, Major Energy relied on the Rabbi to lead them them home and that he did. I don't think a runner advanced to 3rd base all game long for Newday. A special mention to Aryeh Rudman who just got called up to the show and displayed spectacular defense as he started 2 double plays and  displayed his base running skills. So with the series tied, Wednesday will be the 3rd and deciding game to see which team advances to the semi-finals. It has been a very well played series and I'm sure the 3rd game will be a nail biter. Get your seats now as I heard there will be standing room only.

 

Major Energy 8 Newday 6

In the rubber game of the series, Major Energy squeaked out a win that looked like it was going to be a cakewalk for ME as they built up an 8-2 lead after 6 innings. Then everything started to go Newday's way, with hit after hit and a couple of errors by ME and all of a sudden Newday had the bases loaded, down by 3 runs and after a run scored Ezzy Katz lined a bullet up the middle that Vic Fein snared for the last out and secured a spot in the semi finals against NJAIM. ME was led by the superb pitching of Vic Fein (after Rabbi Runman was struck by a line drive pitching batting practice and all reports have him being ok). Me was led by the pitching of Vic Fein who looked like he hasn't missed a beat, the hitting of Doni Katz, 3hits and a booming triple, Avi Blumenfeld a double and a triple and a sac fly, a triple by Aryeh Rudman, 3 hits by Jeff Astor a hit by Davin Rosenblatt and the fielding play of the year by David Stimmel, who probably saved the game with a diving stop and a throw home to nail a runner trying to score. Next up is NJAIM and it will take a Buster Douglas type punch to win the next round. If I know Jason, he won't let any of his players sip the Kool Aid given to him by Major Energy. There are rumors out there that Major Energy is offering fully paid vacations for all players of NJAIM next week.
