Game 3: Holding Hands with Hookers vs. Billy Goats
Ramping it up quickly in the top of the first, HHWH get a walk, a pair of singles, a sac fly, doubles from Gary Brooks and Jeff Sywulak and a triple from Dan Curran en route to four runs. Billy Goats respond with three in the bottom of the first thanks to three singles and George Osti ripping a double. Gary Brooks and Jeff Sywulak stroked back to back triples in the top of the second to help HHWH plate three. In the third, they plate four more thanks to doubles from Mike Washeleski and Gary Brooks plus a three run dinger from Dan Curran. Billy Goats respond in the bottom of the third with a pair of runs both driven in by Kevin Vawter on a base knock. HHWH add to their lead with a Mike Washeleski RBI double to score one in the fourth and in the fifth, tack on two thanks to a triple from Dan Curran and a solo bomb from Gary Brooks. In the bottom of the sixth, Billy Goats get a run on a sac fly and end the inning down eight. They keep their opponents off the board in the top of the seventh (although a single from Gary Brooks complete his cycle!), and in the bottom, they get to work. They load the bases on walks, Kevin Vawtes smacks a two run double, then Chris Vost drives in two more on a single, but flyouts would do them in and they’d come up short. Holding Hands with Hookers outlast Billy Goats and win 14-10.

In the top of the third, Dirty Dozen hit four singles, a sac fly, and Kyle Hutter doubled as four cross the dish. Tropics try to keep pace by pushing in three runs after back to back triples to start the frame from Adam Schwartz and Sean Rizzo. The fourth through sixth innings are silent as defense prevails for a little while. In the top of the seventh, Dirty Dozen add three more runs to their lead highlighted by Ben Vitelli’s two run double. Down 10 runs, Tropics have their work cut out for them. A pair of singles to start the inning followed by a one out walk load the bases for Rick Brauning. Brauning steps up with a triple and scores on a sac fly, but the magic would stop there as Tropics come up short. Dirty Dozen defeat Tropics 15-9.
Man of the Match: Ben Vitelli (2-3, R, 2 SF, 2B, 3B, 4 RBI)
