The softball action on May 22nd was Awesome

on both sides of the plate

as intensity was sky high

and every close pitch mattered

While chicks did the long ball

it was the pitchers who made their mark in this week’s highlights.

Happy Memorial Day!!!!!!!!!!

The Week 5 BMSL highlight doubleheader of the week clearly occurred between “The Spartans” and “D.D. Bandits”. The Spartans won the game 1 softball war in 13 innings 9-5, but the heroics of

“”Seasoned Veteran”" Billy Kosta (pitcher/1st baseball)

helped D.D earn a 6-5 game 2 victory and get out of dodge with a spilt. Billy did it all on Sunday as he pitched 13 innings in the game one loss, hit a double, sled in safely for a triple, and made a bare handed catch on a throw at first base to save a run in the game 2 victory. GO “BMSL Season veterans!!!!!!!!!! P.S. the home plate umpire out of character was cheering for Billy when he was rounding second hoping the “season vet” would be safe at third. Congrats Billy on your outstanding performance

In other BMSL action:

• Team NYL crushed the Bandits 10-6 & 16-3
• Bklyn Knights arrested the Outlaws for a 13-8 & 9-5 Sweep
• The Tribe retreated and gave Raw Deal a good discount by double forfeiting – ugh, brutal
• In a very good match-up the Bushwick Bombers outlasted the Brownsville Bumz 5-4 in 9 innings in game 1, only to have the loveable Bumz bounce back and win the night cap 9-4
• Sports Page blew out the Cardinals 15-5 in game 1, then won a hard fought 7-5 game 2
• Street Family and Talk is Cheap exchanged blowouts with the former winning 10-2 and the latter cruising to a 12-2 mercy win
• Tabu broke out the witch doctor hitting sticks and beat down the Hit Men 13-5 & 16-5
• The D Division A’s and C.I Warriors played a wild doubleheader. In game one, the A’s flexed their D Div muscles for a 11-9 win, but in the nightcap the Warriors showed C Division pride & skill by edging out a 4-3 victory
• The Syndicate inflicted some serious 12-1 damage on Bring the Pain in Game 1, Game 2 was a different story as they had to score 4 runs in the 6th to pull out a football score 18-13 win and complete the sweep
• Sick Fish ate up the Warlocks 13-3 & 14-5
• The Ball Busters castrated the C Division Athletics 13-3 &10-0 – ouch
• In a battle of teams with Brooklyn in their names, the South whipped Venom 20-10 & 15-5
• The Gallos improved to 7-1 overall and moved to sole possession of 1st place in the “D” North by rope a doping the Dunkey Punchers 16-3 & 12-4
• The Furies made the Pullout “PO’s” pull out for good by winning a kiss your sister type double forfeit win over the PO’s. More on PO below
• The Brew Crew could sit back and enjoy a brew after their 7-4 game 1 win over the Wild Bunch, but the sweet taste of that victory was wiped away in game 2 as the bunch smacked them for a 13-3 win.
• How could we forget the Gentlemen? Had to save the league best 10-0 Gentlemen for last. But I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that the Tianos gave the G-men all they could handle in game 1 by just missing the upset and falling 8-7. The Gentlemen took control in the nightcap and prevailed 12-6. Can anyone beat these guys?

The Bumz became kings and shocked the Cardinals by scoring 4 runs in 7th to earn a split.

Well on Sunday the GoodFellas were amused and got gangsta by scoring 3 runs in to 7th to create an instant softball classic and steal an 11-10 victory over Instant Classic.
