The Westbrook Eagles moved into first place by winning three games during this past week. Although the weather was lousy, the pitching and defense was brilliant, as the Eagles allowed only five runs in three games while playing the top three contenders in the league.

The Eagles began the week by defeating Kiwanis, 4-3, in seven innings. Trailing 3-2 in the bottom of the fifth, the Eagles tied the game on a line drive home run by Matt Moody that ultimately sent the game into extra innings.

In the bottom of the seventh Joe Quinlan walked to lead off the inning and scored the winning run on a two out base hit by Adam Begos. The Eagles were led by Begos with three hits and Craig Dibiase with two. Jake Limanni and Joe Dvilinsky pitched well for Kiwanis, while Matt Moody picked up the win for the Eagles.

The Eagles continued their fine play when they bested Tickets, 5-0. Paul Patrotti and Adam Begos combined for a three-hit shutout facing only five men over the limit. Offensively, the Eagles were led by Matt Moody and Brendan Richardson, who had two hits apiece. Mike Pena had two hits for Tickets.

In their third game of the week, the Eagles won another close contest, 3-2, over Phoenix Welding. The Eagles scored twice in the second inning thanks to base hits by Adam Begos and Dylan Dale. The Eagles scored what proved to be the winning run in the fifth inning on a triple by Matt Moody.

While Joe Quinlan and Cale Bollig shut out Phoenix for the first four innings, the Phoenix rose from the ashes in the fifth to make it a close game. Klye Bourassa singled to lead off the that inning and scored on a base hit by Arthur Plaisted. In the sixth, Mike LeCourse singled and scored to make it a one run game. However, the Eagles used the old “catcher to pitcher to shortstop” play to gun down an attempted steal at second base and quell the rally.

Westbrook Kiwanis continued to play well despite losing their first game of the season to the Eagles. Kiwanis showed their powerful offense by scoring 14 runs against Tickets and winning, 14-6. Andrew McCarthy started the game for Tickets with a leadoff double off the base of the fence and eventually scored. It was downhill from there, however, as W.K. came back in their half of the inning with five runs themselves. They did it with four hits sandwiched between three walks. Jake Limanni led the way for W.K. with three hits and two innings of relief pitching.

In addition, Kiwanis blew open a very close game with Phoenix Welding and went on to win, 10-4. In their their third win of the week, Kiwanis won easily over Dairy Queen, 23-3, with a strong display of offense. Despite the loss, John O’Hara hit a long home run for the ice cream team.

Tickets Unlimited started the week with a nice win against Phoenix Welding. Tickets swung the bat well as a team, winning 7-3. Brandon Steele and Mike Pena pitched well for Tickets, striking out 11 batters between them. Steele had three hits as well. Terry Webber had two good hits for Phoenix.

In other games this week, Sappi won all three games to move from last place to fifth in the standings. Sappi began the week by edging the Lions, 2-0. Trevor Bates and Jim Beahm combined for a no-hitter, each pitching three innings. Offensively, Kaleb Kent, Keenan Lowe and Zack Boucher led the way. In their second game, Sappi defeated the Dairy Queen, 10-3, behind the pitching of Lowe and Josh Ames. Repeat hitters for the mill team were Alex Hazlewood, Kent and Lowe.

In their third game, Sappi defeated Prompto in a close game, 6-4. Trevor Bates pitched three hitless innings, running his steak to seventeen innings of no-hit ball. In addition, Bates hit a two-run blast and Cam McLain roped a bases-loaded double in the fifth to help Sappi come from behind for the victory.

Action continues this week with two games slated nightly beginning at 5:30.
