Too bad the Arroyo Grande Suns didn't make the cut... I'd still love to live there and cheer on that team.

But I'll find a new team to cheer for out of the ones that survived.

I agree with you. I had to cut 36 teams from my original list of cities.

I just couldn't play out 30 games a day or administer that many teams.

24 teams and 12 games a day are hard enough and quite demanding.

Thanks for supporting the Islandian Pro Alliance.

Ruthlandian Baseball Union

RBU North Division

ZZ Zips Colfax 3-0
In a seemingly effortless performance Zarek Zalewski (2-0) of Valmara blanked Colfax 3-0 at Mountain View Stadium in the first game of a twinbill. ZZ shackled the Blasters on 4 hits, walked none and struck out 4 to gain his second victory of the season. He saw his ERA dropped to a very impressive 0.64. Colfax's Flash Guidry (1-2) had the misfortune of going up against him and suffered his second loss this year, despite his 1.38 ERA. Guidry went the distance, too, allowing only 3 runs and 7 hits with 7 Ks and 2 bases on balls. The Vipers got all the runs they needed in the fourth frame when center fielder Jan Szymanski jacked a 2-run homer, his 3rd this season. Shortstop Mike Ellefson doubled in the other run in the sixth.

Vipers Sweep Blasters
Valmara, the top team in the Ruthlandian Baseball Union North Division, got another fine pitching performance and swept two from the Colfax Blasters. A big 6-5 southpaw Gerry Bart (1-0) checked them on 8 hits in a 3-1 victory. Bart fanned 4 and issued only 2 walks. Jeff Cook did the only damage with a solo roundtripper in the fifth. Viper third sacker Matt Muzurek delivered the decisive blow in the fifth inning with a 2-run homer, his first of the year. That was enough to send Joe Andrews (1-1) down to his first defeat. Andrews went 7 innings and was touched for 6 hits and 2 runs.
With the double wins today Valmara (8-2) remains on top of the RBU North Division, while Colfax (4-6) is in the fourth spot, 4 games out of first place.

Redhawks Win Opener from A's
Far Mountain was outhit 12 to 7 by Glasco, but still won the game 4-2. Winning pitcher Sonny Elliott (2-1) was tough with men on base and weathered just about every threat until he ran out of gas in the ninth. Elliott walked only 2 and fanned 7 in a gutsy performance. He got good relief from Doc Rutledge, who got him out of a serious jam in the ninth. With one run in and the tying runs on first and second, Rutledge stuck out Jose Valenzuela and retired Lloyd Windham on a grounder to get his second save of the year. The Redhawks top batters were CF Hank Gallagher and 3B Al Nixon, who drove in 2 runs apiece. Four Athletics got all 12 hits - CF Chet Reynold was 4-5, RF Valenzuela 3-4, LF Ox Beauvais 2-3 and Zach Byorvik 3-4.
Jesse Balfour (2-1) suffered from shoddy defense as Glasco committed 3 errors and cost him 3 unearned runs. It was Balfour's first loss this season. He struck out 3, walked 2 and allowed 4 runs in 7 innings.

Glasco Gains Split with FM 6-3
Big 6-6 Ernie McCain rose to the occasion and gained a split of the twinbill with Far Mountain. He only allowed one earned run - two were unearned -- in the 6-3 triumph. In his first start of the season McCain (1-0) yielded 7 hits, whiffed 6 and issued only 2 free passes. Offensively 2B Barry McCord sparked the A's with 2 hits, including a 2-run homer. RF Jose Valenzuela drove in 3 runs and had 2 hits. Denny Arthur (0-1) got a rude awakening in his first start and was routed in the second inning after giving up 5 runs and 5 hits. He was the losing pitcher.
Glasco (7-3) fell into second place in the RBU North with the split. The Athletics are now one game behind the first place Valmara Vipers (8-2). The Redhawks (5-5) are in third place, three games off the pace.

Sandoval Stops All-Stars 5-1
Vigilante lefty Raul Sandoval hurled his club past Elnora in the opener of a doubleheader at State Fair Park. Sandoval (1-2) crafted an impressive 5-1 victory, stopping the All-Stars on 7 hits with 9 strikeouts and only 2 walks. Volusia's 12-hit attack was paced by catcher JoJo Nunez, who collected 3 hits in 5 tries and scored twice. 2B Alejandro Salazar was 2-for-5 with a homer and 2 RBIs. The losing pitcher was Ted Gray (1-2), who tossed another good game, but came up on the short end of the score. He gave up 3 runs on 9 hits in 6 innings.

V's Take Pair from Elnora
The Volusia Vigilantes humbled Elnora 12-5 in the second game to take both ends of the twinbill. The V's offense was sparked by 3B Bennie Anderson, who racked up 3 hits and batted in 6 runs and by backup catcher Jorge Rosado with a 3-run homer and a triple among his 3 hits. He drove in 5 runs. LF Alex Luna and 1B Alejandro Salazar scored 4 times each. Pee Wee Cruz (1-2) blanked the All-Stars for 6 frames, but caved in in the seventh and was raked for 4 runs. Cruz did get the win with the save going to Carlos Romero. Elnora's Carl Costas (1-2) picked up the loss. In 6 innings he allowed 5 runs and 6 hits.
With the split Volusia (3-7) and Elnora (3-7) remained deadlocked for last place in the RBU North Division. The clubs are 5 games behind the pace-setting Valmara Vipers (8-2).

RBU South Division

Benson Blanks BB in Opener
Sugar Valley's Ron Benson (2-1) really zeroed in on Belair Beach in the opening game of two at Farmers Memorial Park. The Rattler righthander blanked the Sunbirds 3-0 on a 6-hitter and struck out 10. In doing so Benson dealt Carl Thompson his first defeat of the season. Thompson worked 7 innings and gave up all 3 runs on 7 hits. He fanned 5 and walked 1. 2B Rudi Oliver tripled in the first run in the second inning, SS Flipper Bird doubled in the second score in the third and Benson singled in the last one in the seventh.

Rattlers Take Twinbill from Sunbirds
The Sugar Valley Rattlers won a close one from Belair Beach to win both ends of the Sunday doubleheader to take over the top spot in the RBU South race. Phil Howard (1-0) and Gregg Neal teamed up for the 4-3 victory. Howard tossed 8 good innings, struck out 8 batters, walked 3 and permitted only 3 runs and 7 hits. Neal came in and registered his 2nd save this year with a scoreless ninth. The Rattlers rattled the boards with 13 hits, but didn't do a lot of damage. Cy Bartz had a 2-run blast in the second inning. Rudi Oliver and Slingshot McFall drove in the other two runs. SS Danny Church was just about all the offense the Sunbirds could find. He went 3-4 with 2 solo homers. Dirk Garrett (0-3) lost his third staight start. He departed after 3 innings after allowing 4 runs on 7 hits.
The Rattlers (7-3) have won three in a row and climbed 1.5 games ahead of second place Marston (6-5), who have lost their last four. Belair Beach (5-5) is tied for third with Forest City (5-5).

Hutchinson Halts Marston 8-0 in First Game
Forest City's Buddy Hutchinson (1-1) copped the first game of a twinbill with Marston, blanking them 8-0. In a strong outing he checked them on 7 hits, struck out 4 and walked only 2. Backed up by 11 hits, the Lumberjacks had an easy time of it. SS Pops Keller slapped out 3-5, scored twice and homered. CF Ryan Morse drilled a pair of base hits and plated 2 runs to led Forest City. Nine starter Nick Pace (1-2) took it on the chin, took the loss and was gone in the third after surrendering 5 runs and 6 hits.

'Jacks Shutout Nine Twice in Twinbill
In the nightcap 22-year-old southpaw Brian Charles picked up right where Buddy Hutchinson left off and also shut out the Marston Nine -- and he did it by the same score 8-0. Charles (2-1) fanned 7 on the way to a 3-hit shutout. Forest City started the game with back-to-back homers by Ryan Morse and Benny Davis and got a 3-run shot by Chuck Hill in the second inning to go up 7-0 and never looked back. Losing pitcher Eric Vogler (0-1) lasted only one inning in his first start this season.
It was the Lumberjacks fourth consecutive victory over Marston. The Nine have now fallen out of first place in the RBU South with a a 6-5 record, 1.5 games behind Sugar Valley (7-3). Forest City moved up to a third place tie with Belair Beach, both are 5-5.

Claxton Clubs Waleska 9-5 in Opener
The Claxton Diamonds pounded out 15 hits on the road to whip Waleska 9-4 in the first game of a doubleheader. RF Dixie Baker led the attack with 3-5, including his 4th home run of the year, 3 RBIs and 3 runs. 2B Donny McCoy had a perfect 3-for-3 day with 3 RBIs and LF Winky Rush was 2-5 with 2 runs batted in. On the hill Tetsunori Nakashima (2-1) labored but went the distance, in spite of giving up a dozen hits. The 28-year-old righthander fanned 5 and walked just 2. Losing pitcher Joel Harrell (1-2) departed in the sixth, after he was ripped for 9 hits and 7 runs. 2B Yoshihide Nishida topped the Westerners at bat with 2 hits and 3 RBIs. He tagged his second roundtripper of the season in the ninth.

Westerners Gain Split with Diamonds
Waleska blew a 4-2 sixth-inning lead, but rebounded with 3 in the last of the eighth to gain a split of the doubleheader with Colfax. The Westerners won the game 7-5, belting out 11 hits and 2 home runs. RF Big Hoss Burkhalter and CF Milt Carlson delivered the homers and drove in a pair of runs each. 1B Timmy Ballard had 3 hits and 2 RBIs. The Diamonds also had 2 fourbaggers, one each by CF Wayne Wilson and RF Dixie Baker. It was Baker's 5th of the year. The only pitcher of note was Waleska's starter Gary Hill, who did a nice job in his six innings, only yielding 2 runs on 5 hits. Jack Wagner (1-0) picked up the win, despite blowing the save in eighth. Marv Chancellor came on in the ninth and got the save. He gave up a two-out single, but then finished off Claxton by striking out the dangerous Baker.
The Westerners (5-6) are in the fifth spot in the RBU South Division standings and trail first place Sugar Valley by 2.5 games. The Blasters (3-7) are stuck in the basement and are 4 games off the pace.

Tycobbian Baseball Union

TBU East Division

Ninjas Nab First Game from Stallions 6-5
Toshiharu Ito saved the day for the Ginza Ninjas in the opening game of a doubleheader. He protected Kazuhiro Nakayama's 6-4 lead and salvaged a narrow 6-5 triumph over South Fork. Ito hurled 3+ innings, permitted 2 hits and 1 run. 3B Glenn Holliday did the only damage with a solo shot in the top of the ninth. Nakayama (1-2) got credit for the win and surrendered 4 runs and 8 hits in 5+ innings. CF Takashi Fujimoto paced the Ninja attack with 3 hits in 4 tries, 4 RBIs and 2 runs scored. He hit a triple and home run. SS Shinjiro Aoki was 2-4 with an RBI and scored a pair of runs. For the Stallions 1B Alex Kesler tagged 2 hits and drove in 2.
Ken Olson (0-2) lost for the second time this year, yielding 5 runs in 4 innings.

Rousakis Blanks SF on 4 Hits, Ninjas Sweep
In a doubleheader sweep of South Fork Vic Rousakis was on target in the nightcap. The Ginza righthander shut them out 4-0 on just 4 hits for his first win this year. He fired 8 strikeouts and walked only 1 in a superlative outing. Southpaw Jerry Hairston (0-1) was the loser, allowing all 4 runs on 10 hits in his 7 innings of work. LF Earl Conley and 1B Kenshin Yamamoto clubbed solo roundtrippers for the Ninjas.
Ginza has now won four straight games and is tied with Cape Coral and Hartsdale for first place in the TBU East race. All of them are 6-4 this season. The Stallions have lost four straight and have fallen to sixth place with a 3-7 mark.

'Canes Robinson Ties K Mark
It wasn't a thing of beauty, but a win is a win -- Just ask Wally Robinson. In the first game of a doubleheader the chunky southpaw for Cape Coral went the distance in an 8-5 win over Ozarka. He was touched for 8 hits, but struck out 12 and walked only one. Robinson is now tied with Carl Thompson of the Belair Beach Sunbirds for the most strikeouts in a single game. RF Rod Kelly got his 3rd roundtripper this season and drove in 2 runs to led the Hurricanes, while LF James Middleton chipped in 2 more RBIs. Pacing the Naturals were C Billy Gibson and RF Ronnie Patterson, both had 2 hits each, including home runs. Luke Hatch (2-1) had a rough outing and lost for the first time this year. He was belted for 6 runs in 3 innings.

CC Sweeps Ozarka
The nightcap was no contest -- Cape Coral crushed Ozarka 13-3 to take both ends of a twinbill at Seaside Stadium and remained in a first place tie for the TBU East Division lead. RF Rod Kelly led the hit parade with 2-4 and 6 RBIs and backup catcher Rick Clark and 1B Rodger Wooten added 2 RBIs each. Lefthander Owen Pruitt (1-0) did a creditable job in his first start of the season. He scattered 8 hits and went all the way for the win. RF Roger Bradley and 1B Poochie Kramer did the most damage for the Naturals as each hit solo shots off Pruitt.
Donnie Young (0-1) took the loss, his first decision of the year. He was whacked for 5 runs in the fourth inning.
The Hurricanes picked up their third victory in a row over the Naturals and are on top of the division standings with Ginza and Hartsdale with 6-4 records. Ozarka is fifth at 4-6 and trail by two games.

Hartsdale Wallops Zorros 8-2 in Opener
Francisco Abreu supplied the hitting and Danny Griffin the pitching in Hartsdale's 8-2 romp over the Luxora Zorros at De la Vega Stadium. Second baseman Abreu smacked 2 home runs, scored 3 times and knocked in 6 in an impressive hitting display. Griffin improved his record to 2-1 with 7 innings of shutout ball, stopping the Z's on 7 hits. He tired in the eighth and needed bullpen help from Adam Falkenbach, who surrrendered a 2-run roundtripper to LF Pedro Vizquel in the last of the ninth. Hellcat CF Greg Reynolds had 3 hits and 2 RBIs. Starter Keith Callahan (0-1) suffered the defeat as he gave up 4 runs and 7 hits in 6 innings.

Montel Outduels Mann in Game Two
In the second game of the twinbill Luxora gained a split with a 2-1 triumph over Hartsdale. Johnny Montel (1-2), a 24-year-old lefty, went the distance and scattered 9 hits with 6 Ks and 2 BBs. It was a very tough defeat for Glenn Mann (1-1), who permitted only 3 hits and 1 earned run. Pedro Vizquel delivered the winning blow when he doubled in Claudio Ordonez from first base in the last of the eighth. Ordonez had gained life on an error by first sacker Todd Seals, who dropped a throw. Rico Vina homered in the fifth to tie the score at 1-1. Back-to-back doubles by Greg Reynolds and Jay Luna to start the game got the Hellcats their only run of the game.
There is now a three-way deadlock for the top spot in the RBU East. Hartsdale, Ginza and Cape Coral all have 6-4 records. Luxora is one game back at 5-5.

TBU West Division

Bucs Give Away Opener to Lynx 9-5
First place La Claire took advantage 7 errors by Bay St. Clair and took the opening game of a twinbill 9-5. The Lynx were gifted with 5 unearned runs. Val Krumholtz (2-0) threw a lot of pitches in his seven innings of work, but came out with his second victory of the season. He allowed 7 hits and 4 runs, struck out 5 and walked 4. Frank Lamoreaux tossed the last two innings and gave up the other run. LF Rich Hart led the La Claire offense with a 2-run homer and 3 RBIs. CF Lucky Collins helped out with a 2-run double. The Lynx only got 7 hits, but 5 walks and the record-setting 7 errors was enough to get the job done. 3B Bubba Tate committed 3 of the miscues. He is now tied with Far Mountain's catcher Dave Davis for the most errors in a game by a player. Far Mountain held the old team record with 6 errors, committed on April 27. The record for most errors by both teams is 8, held by Far Mountain and Glasco.
Tate and SS Chuck Hankins topped the Bucs at bat with 2 RBIs apiece.
Norm Gross (0-2) lost the game, yielding 6 runs, 3 hits and 3 walks in 1+ inning. He left with the score 6-2 in favor of La Claire. Only 2 runs were earned.

Lynx Takes Pair, Edges Bucs 5-4
The TBU West leader took both games of the twinbill. Closer Monoto Kishata of La Claire earned his money in game two with Bay St. Clair. He came in with the Lynx holding a scant 5-4 lead in the top of the eighth and runners on first and second with only one out. He proceeded to get the final two outs of the inning with no damage. In the ninth he struck out the side to nail down the verdict. Nickie Baumgartner (1-1) chalked up the victory, giving up 3 runs (2 earned), 5 hits, while walking nobody and fanning 3. Kishata got credit for his second save on the year.
Cleanup hitter for La Claire LF Rich Hart went 3-for-4 with an RBI. 3B Bubba Tate paced the Buccaneers with 2 RBIs.
The Lynx (9-1) have the best record in the IPA, having won nine games in a row, while Bay St. Clair (2-8) is down in the cellar, already 7 games behind in the race. The Bucs have dropped six consecutive games, which sets a record for the new pro league.

Frogs Squeeze by Champs in IPA's Longest Game
In the longest game in the short IPA history, Stan Cobb's walk-off double decided a 14-inning thriller in the opening game of a doubleheader between Fairfax and Arlon. Both clubs had fought back several times to tie the game up. Cobb's hit made the Frogs an 8-7 winner over the Champions. SS Warren Lee and 2B Greg Inman whacked out 3 hits apiece to spark Fairfax, while Cobb, RF Gregg Vincent and LF Gator Davis contributed 2 RBIs each.
The starting pitchers did well. Arlon's Ace Howe tossed 7 innings and gave up only 2 runs on 7 hits, while Robby Meredith went 8 for the Frogs, struck out 10 and allowed 4 runs and 4 hits. Johnny Schuessler and Takehida Takahashi tossed 5 shutout innings for Fairfax with the victory going to Takahashi. Jeff Nieman stood out for the Champions as he hurled 2-hit ball over 4 innings. The loss went to Erik Fitrakis (0-2), who came on in the fourteenth and was tagged for Cobb's game-winning hit.

Fairfax Wins Pair From Arlon
Game two was also a tight game and Fairfax took another one-run battle from the Arlon Champs. The Frogs were victorious in the nightcap 6-5 in a game played on their home grounds. Fairfax outhit Arlon 13 to 7 and was paced by 3B Stan Cobb with 2-5 and 2 RBIs, SS Warren Lee 2-5 with 2 runs scored and one batted in and RF Gregg Vincent 2-4, including a solo homer and a triple. CF Billy Echevarria went 3-4 and scored once, while 2B Greg Inman was 2-3 and scored once. 2B Karl Detwiler hit a 2-run roundtripper and had 3 RBIs in all to top the Champions.
Jackie Leslie (2-1) got the win by going 8 innings. He allowed 6 hits and 5 runs, only 3 of them earned, walked only one and fanned 8 batters. Nicky D'Artois pitched a scoreless ninth for his first save of the year. The loser was Ray Hunt (1-1), who suffered through a bad day, giving up 8 hits and 6 runs before he exited in the fourth. However, he only gave up 3 earned runs. Rod Kelley came in and blanked the Frogs the rest of the game.
With the twinbill sweep Fairfax (7-3) has now won their last four games and have moved up to second place in the TBU West, two games behind first place La Claire (9-1). Arlon slipped to 4-6 and now rests in a three-way tie for the third spot with Bayview and Blue Lake.

Blue Lake Bumps Off Bayview in Opener
Blue Lake's big, tall righthander Bennie West stopped Bayview 6-3 to capture the first game of the Sunday twinbill. West (2-1) checked the Vikings on 7 hits, fanned 2 and walked 3. RF Pete Lane was the Blue Sox top batter with a 2-for-4 day, 2 RBIs and a home run. LF Greg Boone and CF Donnie Frazier both had 2 hits and drove in one run. Bayview's 1B Dwayne Coleman clouted his 5th roundtripper this season and is tied for the IPA lead.
Paul Hood (0-1) caught the loss. He allowed 3 runs in less than an inning.

Blue Sox Win a Pair from Vikings
Blue Lake got good efforts from Jay Clay (1-0) and Russ Courtney on the hill to knock off Bayview 4-2 and win both ends of the doubleheader at Downtown Plaza Stadium. Clay (1-1) notched the victory, working into the seventh and permitted only 2 runs and six hits. Russ Courtney relieved him and held the Vikings runless the rest of the game to get his first save of the year. SS Speedy Warren belted a 2-run shot to put Blue Lake up 4-2 in the 6th. Adrian Strom got credit for the loss, yielding 4 runs and 6 hits in 6 innings. He fanned 6 and walked two.
Victories in the last two games of the 5-game series put the Blue Sox (4-6) in a three-way tie for third place in the TBU West race with Bayview (4-6) and Arlon (4-6). All of them trail first place La Claire (9-1) by 5 games.

Being able to do a write-up of each game in the game really is a great feature.

If you haven't used it yet, you should try it.

It also make your News Stories have some personality as your write-up is used in the Game News.

You might have to delete an occasional shutout story that the game generates on its own.

Ruthlandian Baseball Union

RBU North Division

McFalls Spins 5-Hit Shutout, A's Beat Redhawks
Glasco's Arnie McFalls (2-1) spread out 8 hits in a 5-0 shutout over Far Mountain. He went the distance, struck out 4 and walked only one batter in a fine performance. LF Ox Beauvais and Barry McCord backed him with home runs. Beauvais slugged his 4th of the year, a solo shot in the fourth frame. McCord's was good for 3 runs in the eighth inning. Pat Brown (0-1) started for the Redhawks and allowed only one run and one hit through 7 innings with 5 Ks and 6 BBs. Brown sustained the loss.
The Athletics ran their mark to 8-3 on the year, good enough for a first place tie in the RBU North with the Valmara Vipers (8-3). Far Mountain's record dipped to 5-6. The Redhawks are in a third place tie with Colfax (5-6).

All-Stars Jolt Valmara Vipers
The Elnora All-Stars went on a 17-hit rampage and jolted the Valmara Vipers 12-6 at War Memorial Stadium. LF Quincy Peterson led the assault with 2 hits and 4 RBIs and CF Harry Wright went 3-for-6 and drove in 3 runs. Southpaw Sean Sykes (2-0) tired badly after 8 innnings and left with a 12-1 lead. He gave up one run and 6 hits, but walked 7 in and up-and-down performance. The Vipers best batters were 3B Matt Mazurek, who banged out 2 hits and had 3 RBIs and LF Louis Sharp, who was 3-5 with 2 runs scored. Todd Turner (1-2) was victimized for 5 runs and 8 hits and made an early exit in the fifth.
With the defeat the Vipers now share first place with the Glasco A's. Both teams are 8-3 on the year. Elnora is 4-7 and in fifth place.

Blasters Blast Vigilantes 10-2
The Colfax Blasters lived up to their name today at Mountain View Stadium -- they blasted Volusia 10-2 behind an impressive outing by Alex Castille (2-0). The smooth-throwing southpaw throttled the V's on 6-hits, fanned 7 and issued only 2 free passes. He got plenty of run support from C Howie Peterson with 3 RBIs, 1B Dennis Cole with a 2-run homer, his 4th of the season and 3B Russ Ferrell, who had a perfect 3-for-3 day with a pair of RBIs. Castille even chipped in 2 RBIs himself. Not a good day at all for Volusia. Loser Gil Armand (0-1) allowed most of the damage, yielding 7 runs and 6 hits in 5 innings.
Colfax improved to a 5-6 record and are deadlocked with the Far Mountain Redhawks (5-6) for the third spot in the RBU North divisional race. The Volusia Vigilantes have last place all to themselves with a 3-8 mark.

I hope it is not a chronic problem, but I crashed when I just clicked a player to put in the game.

Sadly, this was an 18-inning game and would have been the longest ever in the short history of the IPA.

All I lost was this game and some changes in the lineups of a few teams.

I keep hearing that this a chronic problem with V2007.

I went 11 seasons in the Alltime Allstar Association and never had anything like this happen.

That was one of the plusses of V6.51.

I guess I will have to backup after every game just to be safe.

I have had 2 more crashes. It occurs when I am editing the depth charts.

When I drag a player to remove him from the depth chart, the game crashes and I lose all the games played that day and all of the changes I have made to the team lineups.

This seems to be a chronic problem.

I think it may be too much work replaying wiped-out games and having to back up after every single game. I play 12 games a day, sometimes as many as 24, when doubleheaders are scheduled.

Sorry, this league may have to be put on hold until this problem is solved.

I may go back to V6.51 where I don't have this problem.

V6.51 in nowhere near the game V2007 is -- but it is stable and works.

I disabled the debug mode that I use to proof the News Stories and PBP.

It probably had nothing to do with the problem, but at least it is one variable I don't have to worry about now.

I did a lot of work dragging players and clearing out the DH lineups and depth charts and I edited the lineups and depth charts of several teams.

I had no crashes.

Then I played out 3 games with no crashes.

One good thing has come out of this problem -- I now back up after every game.

Ruthlandian Baseball Union

RBU South Division

Diamonds Get a Gem from Castellani
Lefthander Pat Castellani of Claxton hurled a 5-0 shutout over first place Sugar Valley, stopping them on 7 hits. He fanned 4 and walked 3 in a strong outing. Castellani (2-1) even helped his cause with a 2-run triple in the second inning. CF Juan Barajas also had a home run for the Diamonds. The losing pitcher was Tony Michelet (1-1), who allowed 4 runs and 5 hits in 5 innings.
The Rattlers (7-4) are the top club in the RBU South, while Claxton (4-7) is in the sixth and last spot in the division.

FC Beats Marston 5-2 Behind Stuart
Lumberjack righthander Gene Stuart (1-0) won his first start of the year 5-2 over the Marston Nine. He yielded 10 hits, but walked no one. He was tough when men were on base and he struck out 7. Forest City piled up 11 hits in the game and were paced by RF Benny Davis' third roundtripper of the season and C Gerry Tucker who whacked his first. Marston's Casey Ledbetter (2-1) took the loss, permitting 4 runs and 7 hits in just 3 innings.
It was the Lumberjacks fifth successive win and the Nine's fifth loss in a row.
Forest City improved to 6-5 this season. Marston is now all even at 6-6. The Lumberjacks are in second place in the RBU South Division, one game off the pace of first place Sugar Valley. The Nine are tied with the Waleska Westerers (6-6) for the third spot.

Westerners Win 1-0 Over Sunbirds
It was a magnificent pitchers duel at Westerner Field between Rusty Kraft and Troy Wilson. Kraft (1-1) came close to shutting out the Belair Beach Sunbirds on a 2-hitter, but fell one out short. In the top of the ninth Waleska held a 1-0 lead. However, after he retired the first two batters, Kraft walked the next two. At that point McGraw Johnson yanked Kraft and summoned Andrei Marsiske from the bullpen to face a tough lefthanded hitter, Nicky Swift. Marsiske got the Sunbird clean-up hitter swinging on a 3-2 pitch to nail down the win. The only run of the game occurred in the last of the fifth, when SS Errol Eichhorn smacked a two-bagger to lead off the inning, moved to third on a ground out and came in when pitcher Kraft grounded out to short.
Kraft and Wilson were both superb. Kraft got the victory and allowed only 2 hits, both of them doubles. He fanned 5 and walked 3. Wilson (1-1) was just about as good as he surrendered just 4 hits, struck out 3 and walked nobody.
There were only 6 total hits in the game. This set a new IPA mark for the fewest hits in a game by one team (2) and the fewest hits in a game by two teams (6). The old mark was 9 by Volusia (4) and Elnora (5) on April 26. The old mark of fewest hits allowed by a pitcher belonged to Ray Hunt of Arlon, who restricted Bayview to just 3 hits on April 24 and Danny Griffin of Hartsdale, who held Cape Coral to just 3 hits on April 25. The record now belong to Kraft and Marsiske.
The Westerners evened their record to 6-6, good enough for a third place tie with Marston in the RBU South race, while Belair Beach dropped to 5-6 and are in fifth place.

Tycobbian Baseball Union

TBU West Division

Champs Smith Snaps Lynx 9-game Win Streak
Craig Smith (2-0) of Arlon didn't let Rich Hart's third-inning 3-run homer get to him. After that he blanked first place La Claire over the next six innings for a 7-3 triumph and ended their nine-game winning skein. Smith gave up 3 runs and 6 hits in all, while hurling a complete game. He whiffed 6 and issued only one walk. Smith was backed by 4 home runs and 11 hits. CF Jerry Keller evened the score at 3-3 with a three-run shot in the fourth frame, LF Matt Merrill made it 5-3 with a 2-run salvo in the fifth, RF Steve Barnett increased it 6-3 in the eighth and SS Bama Hartley finished it off with a solo home run in the ninth.
Pat Daniels (1-1) started for La Claire and was credited with the defeat. He was hit hard and allowed 9 hits and 5 runs in 7 innings.
The Lynx (9-2) suffered only their second loss this year and still are in first place in the TBU West Division. Arlon's record is now 5-6. The Champs are tied for third with the Blue Lake Blue Sox (5-6).

Bucs Beat Frogs in 13th
Fairfax and Bay St. Clair battled long and hard for 13 innings, when catcher Jake Singleton finally decided it with a two-out double that scored Tony Mann from second base to win it 3-2. It came off losing pitcher Johnny Schuessler (0-2), who had just come on in relief at the start of the thirteenth. Norm Gross (1-2) got the victory with a scoreless inning.
The Buccaneers Gary Robinson was magnificent in the game, working 11 innings and holding the Frogs to 2 runs and only 5 hits with 7 Ks and no walks. Jimmy Dalton, the Fairfax starter, also hurled a strong game, stopping Bay St. Clair on one run and 5 hits through seven frames with 5 strikeouts and 3 bases on balls. Gerry Fisher stood out for the Frogs, too. He held the Buccaneers without a run from the ninth through the twelfth.
2B Tony Mann sparked BSC at bat, going 4-for-6 with 2 doubles and 2 runs scored. Singleton was 3-7 with a pair of RBIs. RF Gregg Vincent was the only bright spot for the Frogs as he hit his IPA-leading 7th home run of the season.
Bay St. Clair (3-8) is still in last place in the TBU West, while the Fairfax Frogs (7-4) are in the number two slot, 2 games behind first place La Claire.

Blue Sox Sock It to Viks 7-2
Solid hitting and solid pitching is a hard combination to beat. Blue Lake banged out 10 hits in a 7-2 victory over Bayview at Harbor Stadium. The Blue Sox got a good outing from righthander Donnie Bullock, who restricted the Vikings to just 2 runs and 6 hits in 8 innings. He tired in the ninth and Russ Courtney got the final three outs. 1B Fred Taranto led Blue Lake with 3-4, including a pair of doubles and 3 RBIs. It was not a good day for Bayview starter Mike Jardoin (0-1). He left trailing in the fourth 5-0, after surrendering 5 hits and all the runs.
It was Blue Lake's (5-6) third consecutive win over the Buccaneers (4-7). The Blue Sox are tied for third with Arlon (5-6) in the TBU West.

Tycobbian Baseball Union

TBU East Division

'Canes Blow Past SF
Both clubs played loose with the baseball, but division leader Cape Coral came out the winner 6-4 over the South Fork Stallions despite 3 errors. It was their fourth victory in a row and the Stallions fifth straight defeat. Hurricane starter Gary Fountain (2-0) notched his second win of the young season. He took a 6-2 lead into the ninth and exited quickly after Paul Giles smashed a 2-run homer. Katsuyuki Nagashima gained his second save by getting the final two outs of the game. The Stallions also committed 3 miscues, but it cost them only one run. 2B Andy Anderson had the big bat with 2 hits, including a solo roundtripper and 3 RBIs. Teammate Erik Smith was a perfect 3-for-3 with 2 doubles and 2 RBIs. Giles paced South Fork with his home run and 3 RBIs. It was his fourth homer this season.
Fountain scattered 9 hits in the game with only 2 of the 4 runs earned, fanned 7 and walked 2 to pick up the victory, Flint Battle (2-1) lost it, while giving up 4 runs and 6 hits in 6 innings of work. He struck out 5 and walked only 1.
The Hurricanes improved to 7-4 this season and are a game in front of second place Hartsdale, Luxora and Ginza, who are all 6-5. South Fork is in last place in the TBU East Division at 3-8.

Fernandes Whitewashes Hellcats
Big 6-6 Francisco Fernandes of Luxora worked his magic on Hartsdale and shut them out 2-0 on a 6-hit job. The lanky lefty had his stuff today and finished with 4 strikeouts and 2 walks. 3B Rico Vina ripped a two-run double in the fifth inning for the game's only scores. Jim Sears (1-1) pitched very well in defeat, giving up only 2 runs and 7 hits in 7 innings. Vina (2-4), Pedro Vizquel (2-3) and Tom Fortunato (3-4) paced the Z's 10-hit attack.
The Hellcats and Zorros are 6-5 and tied with Ginza for second place.

Nats Nuke Ninjas 7-0
Two homers in the first got Ozarka off and running on the way to a 7-0 triumph over the Ginza Ninjas. LF Ronnie Patterson began the game with a lead-off homer, then 2B Duane Starr followed it up with a 2-run shot, putting the Naturals ahead to stay. A four-run seventh finished off Ginza. Not only did Ozarka shine with the bats, but Tony Didriksen (1-1) sparkled on the mound with a 7-hit shutout. He threw only 98 pitches, fanned 4 and walked only 1 in a super performance.
CF Teddy Braun led the Nats 11-hit attack with 3-for-5 and 2 runs, Starr was 2-for-4 and 3B Doug Cunningham went 2-4, drove in a run and scored once.
Ozarka (5-6) is in the fifth spot in the TBU East standings, while Ginza is in a three-way deadlock for second.

Thanks for checking out the IPA.

Glad you like the write-ups.

The game recap inside the game really is a great positive for dynasty writers and great for the news stories, too.

I cut and paste the game recaps here for then Dynasty report.

I will give monthly summaries of the league stats, individual and team.

I am still searching for the best way to write the Dynasty.

RBU North Division

A's Metcalf Blanks Redhawks on 5 Hits
The Athletics have taken over first place in the RBU North. Glasco's Kenny Metcalf (2-1) spun a nice 4-0 shutout over Far Mountain, allowing on 5 hits with 6 strikeouts and just one walk. The Athletics hammered 3 out of the park with RF Jose Valenzuela, 1B Francisco Robles and SS Zach Byorvik all providing the longball. Pat Brown (0-3) lost his third game of the year, being peppered for all three homers and all the runs. He was relieved in the sixth.

The victory gave Glasco (9-3) a one-game lead over Valmara (8-4). It was the A's third win in a row. Far Mountain (5-7) is now tied for fourth place with Elnora (5-7).

All-Stars Knock Vipers Out of First
The Elnora All-Stars whipped Valmara 6-2 behind lefthander John Tinker (1-1). The loss dropped the Vipers into second place in the RBU North Division, one game behind Glasco. Tinker was tagged for 9 hits, walked 3 and fanned 5, but rose to the occasion, when Valmara got into scoring position. 2B Gil Foster provided 3 hits, 2 runs and 2 RBIs for the winners, including his 4th homer of the season. RF Art Atkins also chipped in with 3 hits and scored 3 times.
Valmara starter Paul Schoenfeld (0-1) never got in the groove - in 6 innings he was tagged for 6 hits and 5 runs. Schoenfeld absorbed the loss.

The Vipers dropped the last two contests to Elnora.

Colfax Sneaks by Volusia 6-5
The Blasters won a close 6-5 decision from Volusia at Mountain View Stadium in Colfax today. Walt Sellers stopped a budding Vigilante rally in the ninth after he allowed them to cut the lead to just one run. After he surrendered a two-run homer to Jojo Nunez, Sellers settled down and retired the next three batters to get the save. SS Warren O'Reilly got the big blow of the ballgame, when he crashed a three-run blast in the 4-run fifth. The winning pitcher was Greg Forest (1-1), who almost went the route, but stumbled in the ninth and needed help. He tossed 8 innings, gave up 9 hits and 4 runs with 4 Ks and 1 BB. Leo Flores got the loss for Volusia as he yielded 5 runs and 7 hits in 6 innings.

The Blasters (6-6) have won two straight from Volusia (3-9) and pushed the Vigilantes deeper in the RBU North cellar. Colfax is now in third place and trail the division leader Glasco by three games.

RBU South Division

Rattlers Edge Diamonds 4-2
The Sugar Valley Rattlers were outhit on the road 11 to 9, but they were not outscored and came away with a 4-2 victory over the Claxton Diamonds at Avalon Stadium. Junkballer Harvey Hines (1-1) gives up a lot of hits, but not many runs. He hurled a complete game and struck out two batters and walked two in the win. He outpitched Dennis Scott (0-1), who was making his initial start this season. Scott gave up 9 hits, fanned 3 and walked 2 in the loss. Sugar Valley benefited from three solo home runs. LF Cy Bartz, RF Karl Dietz and 1B Ken Arnold all collected their second roundtrippers to spark the Rattlers.
Sugar Valley (8-4) is on top of the RBU South race, 1.5 games in front of second place Marston (7-6) and Waleska (7-6). Claxton (4-8) is four games back in last place.

Nine Nips 'Jacks in 13th
The Marston Nine kept coming back all day long against Forest City at Legends Field. They came back from 4-0 with a big 4-run frame in the sixth. And they came back in the bottom of the ninth to tie it again at 5-5. Then Marston won it in the last of the thirteenth 6-5. They won it off of reliever Herm Bahr (1-3) when Tommy Reinhold's grounder took a bad hop and bounced over second baseman Jesse Wolf's head into right field to score Lennie Torricelli from third base.
The winning pitcher was Ed Vogler (1-1), who didn't allow a run in his 4 innings of relief.
Marston center fielder Reinhold was the big hero of the day with 4 hits and 5 RBIs, including a grand slam in the sixth. LF Chuck Hill drilled 4 hits for the Lumberjacks, scored twice and sent 2 runs across. He hit a pair of home runs, giving him 7 for the season, tied for the best in the IPA.
This was the second longest game in IPA history. The record is 14 set by Arlon and Fairfax on April 29th, 2001.
Marston (7-6) is tied for the second spot in the RBU South standings with Waleska, while Forest City (6-6) is in the fourth spot in the division.

Westerners Edge Sunbirds 5-4 in 11 Innings
Waleska's 6-6 RF Big Hoss Burkhalter rapped a game-winning single to best Belair Beach 5-4 in 11 innings. That gave the loss to Lyndon Yarbrough (0-1) and the win to Andrei Marsiske (1-0), both had come on in the game's last inning. Burkhalter was the Westerners top gun with 2 RBIs, while SS Kip Sanders and 1B Freddie Shelton each went 2-for-5, scored one and drove in one. For the Sunbirds Matty McDermott and Nicky Swift did the most damage with home runs.
The Waleska Westeners (7-6) are tied for the third spot in the RBU South Division with the Marston Nine. The Sunbirds (5-7) are in fifth place.

Tycobbian Baseball Union

TBU East Division

Hellcats and 'Canes Tied for First
The Hartsdale Hellcats edged the Luxora Zorros 4-3 behind some outstanding pitching by Roger Graves (1-2). He stifled the Z's on just 2 hits until weakening in the ninth. With two outs and a 4-1 lead he gave up a single to Pedro Vizquel and a 2-run homer to Paul Hallenbeck, then gave way to Gene Young who closed it out. He retired the dangerous Roberto Vina on a routine grounder to get his second save. Vina had homered earlier in the game.
Eddie Castillo garnered the loss, permitting 4 runs and 8 hits in 7 innings. He had 4 strikeouts with just one walk.
The Hellcats are 7-5 and tied for first place in the TBU East with the Cape Coral Hurricanes, while the Luxora Zorros dipped to 6-6 and a second place tie with Ginza and Ozarka.

Stallions Stall Hurricanes in Extra Innings
Cape Coral manager Zoggy White was not too happy with his club's 6-4 loss in extra innings to the South Fork Stallions. The Hurricanes took a 3-1 margin into the top of the ninth and couldn't hold it, then lost it in the tenth. Pinchhitter Gene Woodruff wielded the big stick with a 3-run double to make 4-3 in favor of the Stallions. Cape Coral managed to tie it with the help of a crucial throwing error by center fielder Eddie Isaksen. Isaksen redeemed himself with single in the tenth. With one out he moved to second on a walk and then came around to score on catcher Ronnie Blair's bloop single. South Fork added an insurance run on Mac Stewart's ground out. Reliever Glenn Turnbull (2-0) pitched the last two frames for the win, while Scotty Lohmeyer was tagged with the loss.
In all the two clubs committed 8 errors, 4 apiece. This ties the IPA mark set by Glasco (2) and Far Mountain (6) on April 27, 2001. The Redhawks hold the record for the most by one team.
The Hurricanes are now 7-5 in the TBU East and deadlocked with Hartsdale for the top spot. The Stallions are still last in the division with a 4-8 mark.

Ozarka Nudges by Ninjas 7-5
Ozarka outdid Ginza 7-5 with late-inning rallies to move up into a tie for third place in the TBU East. Trailing 5-4 going into the last of the seventh, the Naturals put one run on the board to tie it and then followed it up with 2 in the eighth to win it. C Billy Gibson supplied the winning blow with a two-run homer off losing pitcher Toshiharu Ito (0-1), who failed to hold on to the lead. Yasuyuki Nakagawa (2-0) picked up the victory by retiring the side in order in the last two innings.
Ozarka is now 6-6 and in a three-way tie for the number two spot in the TBU East Division with Ginza and Luxora.

TBU West Division

Lynx Easily Beat Champions
Righthander Jerry Smith (3-0) notched his third successive win by dumping Arlon 8-1 in a game played at Capitol Park Stadium in La Claire. Smith dazzled the Champs on just 3 hits, fanned 6 and walked 4. Leading the Lynx attack was 2B Darrell Boyce, who went 3-4 with a homer, double and 5 RBIs. Pete Edgar (0-2) suffered the loss for Arlon, allowing 5 hits and 6 runs and departed in the fifth inning.
La Claire (10-2) is the top team in the TBU West, while Arlon (5-7) is in the third spot in the standings, tied with the Blue Lake Blue Sox and the Bayview Vikings.

Bucs Beat Frogs with 5-run 9th
Shoreline Park in Bay St. Claire was a hitter's paradise today as the homestanding Buccaneers rebounded in the late innings for an 11-9 victory over the Fairfax Frogs. After falling behind 9-3 in the sixth, the Bucs rallied for 3 in the seventh and 5 in the ninth to surprise the Frogs and delight their fans. C Jake Singleton delivered a dramatic 3-run walk-off smash off loser Johnny Schuessler (0-3) to win it. Bay St. Clair collected 10 hits in all, led by Singleton's 2-for-5 and 3 RBIs. 2B Tony Mann was 2-5 with a home run and 4 RBIs, 3B Bubba Tate had a 2-run roundtripper and LF Charley Moon rapped out 3-4 and scored 3 times. Denny Coulon and Johnny Nikolsky supplied good relief for skipper Guy Rondre as they held Fairfax hitless over the last three frames. Nikolsky (1-1) picked up the win.
The Frogs also had a good day at the plate with 13 hits. 3B Stan Cobb and RF Gregg Vincent both were 3-for-5 with 3 RBIs. Cobb (3rd), Vincent (8th) and LF Gator Brown (3rd) provided home runs. Vincent is the home run leader in the IPA.
With the defeat Fairfax (7-5) fell three games behind the TBU West leader, the La Claire Lynx (10-2). Bay St. Claire (4-8) is pulling up the rear in last place.

Vikings Rip Blue Sox
Bayview combined some good hitting with some decent pitching and finished off Blue Lake 8-4 at Harbor Stadium today. 1B Dwayne Coleman walloped his 6th homer of the campaign, collecting 3 hits in 4 at-bats with 3 RBIs, SS Shorty Richards chipped in with 3-for-5, 2 RBIs and scored twice and 2B Alan Hansen went 2-for 3 with a double, 2 runs and 2 RBIs. On the hill Charley Andrews (1-1) labored at times but still managed to get the win. Lewis exited with the score 6-4. He permitted 4 runs and 6 hits before he was relieved in the seventh by Buzzy Lewis. The save went to Lewis, who gave up no runs in 2+ innings. It was his second of the year.
Pete Henry (1-2) caught the loss. The Viks flailed him for 5 runs and 7 hits in just over 4 innings.
Bayview (5-7) moved up in the TBU West and is now tied for third with the Blue Sox and Arlon. All of them trail first place La Claire by 5 games.

Ruthlandian Baseball Union

RBU North Division

Redhawks Take Close One from A's 5-4
Trailing 4-3 going into the last of the eighth, Far Mountain won a tight victory 5-4 over first place Glasco. In all, the Redhawks rapped 4 homers with the last one by 3B Johnny Strickland deciding the outcome. It was his 6th one this season and came off losing pitcher Ray Cook (0-1), who had just come on in the eighth inning in relief of starter Charles Darby. RF Tommy Sonnier hit two of the roundtrippers and LF Joe Leroux got the other one.

Vic Vaux (2-0) registered the win with help from Doc Rutledge, who loaded the bases in the ninth, but got out of it with no damage done for his third save. Vaux tossed 8 innings, allowed 10 hits and 4 runs. He struck out 5 and walked 2. The A's got 11 hits in all, but could not come through in the clutch.

The Athletics still retain first place in the RBU Northern race with a 9-4 mark, one game up on the Valmara Vipers (8-5) and two in front of the Colfax Blasters (7-6). Far Mountain (6-7) is tied for fourth with Elnora (6-7).

Elnora Wins Rout, 18-8 over Valmara
It was the biggest offensive day in IPA history - most runs by two teams (26) - most runs in an inning (13) - and most hits by two teams (33). And when the balls stopped flying around War Memorial Stadium, Elnora had mauled Valmara 18-8. The All-Stars accounted for 19 hits and the Vipers 14 in the hitfest. Topping Elnora was C Todd Simons, who was 3-5 with 5 RBIs, SS Richie Franklin 2-4 and 4 RBIs, 3B Tomas Ventura 2-4 and 4 RBIs and 1B Will Jackson 1-4 with 3 RBIs. Ventura had a grand slammer, while Franklin and Jackson both blasted 3-run homers in the rout.

The pitchers took the day off. Ted Gray (1-2) got credit for the victory, but was knocked around for 11 hits and 6 runs in 6+ innings. Chuck Kowalczyk (1-2) started and lost it as he was ripped for 7 runs and 6 hits in 2 innings.

The old record for most runs by two teams was 22 in Valmara's 19-3 triumph over Elnora on April 24, hits by two clubs was 31 by Claxton (19) and Sugar Valley (12) in the Diamonds 14-6 win on April 22 and the biggest inning was 9 runs by Glasco in their 16-5 victory over Far Mountain on April 27.

The All-Stars improved to 6-7, tying them with Far Mountain for the fourth spot in the RBU North. Second place Valmara slumped to 8-5 and is one game behind the division leader Glasco (9-4).

Colfax Takes Tight 3-2 Game from V's
The Colfax Blasters didn't do too much blasting -- they were outhit 9 to 3 by Volusia -- but they still won the ballgame 3-2 over the Vigilantes.

Harry Manning (2-0) and Jim Dreyer combined for the victory. Manning was the winner as he went the first eight innings, permitted 9 hits and 2 runs. Dreyer picked up his first save with a scoreless ninth. Volusia's Hank Massey (1-2) pitched a strong game and surrendered only 1 earned run in a route-going performance. He whiffed 4 and walked just 2 in defeat.

RF Pat Lott of Colfax knocked in the winning score with a deep sacrifice fly in the sixth frame.

Colfax (7-6) is in the third spot in the RBU North standings and the Vigilantes (3-10) are deep in the division basement. The Blasters are two games behind Glasco (9-4) and one behind second place Valmara (8-5).

RBU South Division

Diamonds Nakashima Stops Rattlers
Tetsunori Nakashima (3-1) was in top form as the Colfax righthander checked first place Sugar Valley 3-2 on a four-hitter. In a fine outing he had 9 strikeouts and walked only 1. Ricky Fox (1-1) got nicked with the loss, allowing 3 runs and 10 hits in just 6 innings. LF Juan Barajas, SS Bobby Ritter and 3B Keith Olsen had two hits apiece to pace the Diamonds. 3B Jorge Vargas had his 3rd roundtripper of the year to lead the Rattlers.

Sugar Valley (8-5) retains the top position in the RBU South, while Colfax (5-8) is still last. The Diamonds are deadlocked with Belair Beach (5-8).

Marston Blanks FC 5-0
Nick Pace didn't give Forest City much to hit today at Legends Field in Marston. The Nine's wild and wooly righthander only allowed 2 hits in eight innings and blanked the Lumberjacks 5-0 with the help of reliever Kenny Bagby, who tossed a scoreless ninth. Pace (2-2) continued to be plagued by control problems as he walked 9 batters, but he is proving to be tough to hit. His manager, Johnny Walters, said Pace is trying to be too fine with his pitches. He said his stuff is good enough to get people out. He just needs to throw more strikes. Forest City's tough lefty Buddy Hutchinson (1-2) was the loser, yielding all 5 runs on 10 hits. A 4-run eight knocked him out of the box.

Marston was led at bat by 1B Chuck Barrett, who belted 2 hits in 4 tries and drove in 3 runs and C Eddie Allen, who contributed a two-run homer.
The Nine (8-6) crept to withing a half-game of the top spot in the RBU South Division with the win, while fourth place Forest City (6-7) fell below .500.

Westerners Win 4th Straight
Waleska is on a roll. The Westerners just won their fourth staight game to move into a tie for second place in the RBU South. 24-year-old Gary Hill (1-0) turned in a good performance to beat Belair Beach 4-2 at Westerner Field. Hill stayed around until two outs in the eighth. Up to then he had quelled the Sunbirds on 6 hits and had a 3-2 lead. Buddy Kennedy got the save by getting the last five outs. Waleska beat a tough customer in Carl Thompson (2-2), who was tagged for 3 runs in the second, but then put the Westerners down in the next 4 frames with no runs. Thompson allowed 4 hits and 3 runs in 6 innings. C Jordy Hill batted in one run for Waleska and Gary Hill doubled in two more in the second inning. RF Nicky Swift led Belair Beach at bat with a 2-run home run, his 5th this year.

Waleska (8-6) is now tied for second place with Marston (8-6), just a half-game back of first place Sugar Valley. Belair Beach (5-8) tumbled into a last place tie with the Claxton Diamonds (5-8). It was the Sunbirds fifth consecutive defeat.
