Atlantic's quest to defend its two year reign as Gotham Cup Champions looked good on Saturday as they swept their first two preliminary round games, putting away the Waterbury Connors, 16-5, and then the Elkton Eclipse, 13-2. In the first game, Atlantic put on a defensive display, highlighted by a back-handed one-handed catch of a sizzling line drive by Atlantic second baseman Hawk. Toothpick and Billy Goat led the Atlantic offensive attack with 3 hits apiece. Hawk, Dreambucket, Shakespeare, Hammy, and Wildhorse each had 2 hits. Pigtail stymied the Connor bats for the victory.
