Docksiders take A Division title
Docksiders claimed softball’s A Division title by taking three of four games against the Chubb Kings.
Two of those victories were walk-offs with Paulo Arruda delivering the game-winning hit in extra innings with a bloop single down the right-field line to bring home Brad Molitor who had gone 4-4 in the game.
Shaun Perry was 4-4 for Chubb in the loss.
Docksiders won the series with a 16 to 11 triumph. A seven-run second inning put the pub ahead, and they never looked back.
Greg Bell was 3-4 with five RBI in the big win. Team-mates Gary Adams (3-4) and Shawn Furlong (3-5) also had good turns at the plate while Adam Birch and Mike Sakata homered. Tory Richard and Dianne Blais were 3-3 in the loss for Chubb.
The C Division title was won by Super Express after Buffaloes defaulted games four and five after being up 2-1.
Angels retook the Women’s Division title by winning three of four from PHC Zebras. Angels took the deciding contest 27-3 thanks in part to 19 walks issued by PHC’s pitching.
Terry Paynter and Keisha Eve were 2-3 for the champions with team-mate Chelsea Ray (1-1) having three RBI. Jessica Furtado (2-2) had two of PHC’s three hits.
Beach Bums and Raggamuffins will play the decisive fifth game for the B Division title tomorrow at 7.30pm.
In the postseason tournament, Team Smokey beat Buffaloes 16 to 11. Paraquet Flyers reeled in Blue Wahoos 26-10, while Raggamuffins dimmed Outback Skylightz 14-2.
The only other contest saw Platano Power beat Wahoos 19-16. Both Stalin Lopez and Willy Flores were 4-5 in helping Platano to the win.
Lopez also had a homer and five RBI while Flores plated four runs. Albert Acevedo was 3-5 with a homer and three RBI for Platano.
Brett Farlow hit three homers in the loss while Robbie Bailey was 3-5 and Andrew Markus and Laura Murphy were both 3-4.
All games are played at the Michael Preece Softball Diamond at Bernard Park.
