Rockland Window 7 Westrock-Refuahs.org
It was a beautiful night at Orchard hill park for baseball that saw a match up of a RCW team that had lost their first 2 games and was looking for there first win against a undefeated west rock team that was missing there captain steve and a couple of their players but still fielded a solid team. RCW took a quick 1-0 lead that vanished fast and found themselves down 4-1 to westrock on some solid pitching by D Berman and timely hitting.It did not look good for the shades but thanks to a bomb double to the right field fence by Nemtov that ended a few plays later with a belly flop on home plate and the red hot Avi Cohen who is batting over 800 and some outstanding pitching by Samet the stage was set in the 7th with the game tied 5-5 a man on third when RWC cleanup hitter Bradley the Wolf-set smoked a 2 Run homer over the fence in left field that is still going and RWC held on to win on great hustle by david samet to cover first base to seal the win in the 9th with the tying runs on base....Shout out to Josh B for playing solid left field and being on base all night and the rook Pinny L for making huge catch in right and Chaim R for solid play at third and Sunny smoking the ball all night.
7 Ticket Professor 17
Lotto games, or the result of today's matchup between Ticket Professor and Aer8? TP made the mistake of thinking that today's game would be a cakewalk and their opponents would fall apart like shoddy, off-brand TP...well the new kids on the block sure proved them wrong. Aer8 scored three runs in the top of the first inning, punctuated by a walkoff celebration after the third score. It was as if the runner knew what was coming - the TP attack began.
Although continuously frustrated by Aer8's pitcher inducing them into popups, the TP hitters managed to get it together enough to score in every inning, using well placed hits and alert baserunning. The attack was led by Aron Schwartz (2-3, RBI, 3 runs scored), Yossi Rosenberg (3-4 with an RBI in each at bat), Pinny Kahana (3-4, 2 doubles, a triple, 2 RBI and 3 runs scored) and Yosef Silber (2-3, 2 doubles and 2 RBI). Aer8 made it close in the top of the sixth with three runs, including a bomb by Mr. Laufer, but TP hung up 7 runs in the 7th to turn the game into a "laufer" (oish - think it's time to retire from writing these), with Meir Baum reaching the fence on a one-hopper.
Credit must go to the Aer8 team, who fought hard and gave the first place Professors a real scare. Next up for TP is a matchup Tuesday night with fellow undefeated team Westrock in a battle for first place in this early season. #RollTP

Thunder K takes it away!
15 Aer 0
Realty Teams came focused to the game not wanting to overlook the Aer8 team who gave TP a run for their money the day before. Realty Teams jumped out to a 5-0 first inning lead and never looked back. Led by a solid pitching performance by Zevi Simonovitz and a solid game at the plate and in the field by Ali , Realty Teams kept it going all night for a 15-0 win. Eli Gelb had a big night at the plate as well with 3 big hits and an all around solid game.
Chefman 6 Bagel D'Lox 3
The field was as dirty as the jerseys on a wet night at the ballpark, as Chefman jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead and never looked back. Led by Eli Nagel's 4 hits and Mutty Friedman continuing his torrid hitting, launching a huge 2 RBI double - when that bat hits the ball, watch out. Bagel D staged a fierce comeback in the bottom of the 6th, but a 1-4 double play eliminated the Mann at 2nd and the threat.
Chefman looks to continue its hot start and keep its grip on 1st place vs Westrock next Sunday morning, while Bagel D looks to stop it's slide vs undefeated Ticket Pro.
Bubba's11 Rockland Window 5
After what seemed to an eternity, Bubbas who only has played 2 games and lost both on unearned runs and tough bounces finally got a game in after with the rain in the morning almost didn't happen. Pitching his 3rd game of the season, Laz pitched another gem. Spotless infield and solid outfield play along with an offensive barrage of 21 hits Bubbas scored 11 runs and got their 1st win of the season. A nice wake up call for a team that plans on making some noise this season.
Next up is a Sunday night matchup vs. Aer 8.
5 Westrock-Refuahs.org 4
Avi Kagan and Levi Rosenberg squared off in a battle between two top-tier teams Tuesday night, as Ticket Pro took on Westrock-Refuah.org. TP struck early in the top of the first, bringing three men home on RBI by Yossi Rosenberg and Jeremy Doberman, and Avi's pitching and flawless fielding made it look like that would be enough. Westrock's hitters couldn't get a runner beyond first base for the first five innings. But Levi shut the door down on the talented TP lineup as well, mowing through the lineup with ease.
Westrock pushed one across in the bottom of the 5th, but TP responded in the next inning. Yossi Rosenberg walked, followed by a booming Meir Baum double to the wall, and the Professors used small ball (Ezzy Katz sac fly culminating in a brilliant slide by Yossi, then Jeremy Doberman bringing in another run on a ground ball) to build a seemingly insurmountable 5-1 lead.
Westrock's veteran leader Steve Romer refused to let his team crumble, however, and the Appraisers responded with three in the bottom of the frame (all with two outs, as they tenaciously extended the inning). But a hot ground ball to third left the bases loaded, and TP escaped the inning with the lead, closing out Westrock in the 7th to hold on for a nail-biting 5-4 victory to remain undefeated a quarter of the way through the season. Game balls to Avi for another well pitched game, Pinny for controlling the defense in centerfield in addition to a sparkling assist, and Ezzy for his overall leadership behind the plate.Ticket Pro next heads to "the great equalizer" Orchard Hill Park to face family and friends with Bagel D'Lox next Sunday. As Jeremy says, 5/26. #RollTP.
