Game 1 - Gothams 21 - Hartford Homestead Greys 14

Game 2 - Gothams 21 - Hartford Homestead Greys 3

Gentlemen: What a day! for those of you not present- you missed a doozie!  Gotham wins both ends of doube header, doubling their win total for the season. I'll dispense wth the flowery writing and go straight to the goods. First of all steady defense for most of the day. Just really solid. Jitters says anybody would have been hard pressed to beat us and I have to agree. Booth strikes out one. Bones strikes out three. But even better...

Tremendous offense!!! Gotham put up 21 runs in the first game to win 21-14.

The Stats: Buster- 2 for six, three times on base, 2 runs, 2 SB. Walker- 2 for 6, 3 times on base,Triple, 1 run. Booth- 2 for 6, 3 times on base, 3 runs, 1sb. Bones 2 for 5, 3 times on base 2 runs, 3 sb. Trolley 1 for 5 , 2 times on base 1 run. Our newest player John "Stacks" Hyslop played a solid 2nd base, went 3 for 5 with 2 runs. Also, a relative (Uncle?) of Buster's joined us for the day at first base. "Birdie" went 3 for 5, four times on base and two runs. He also expressed a desire to join us next season! Huzzah for the new recruits! Finally the Stars of the game were clearly Jitters and Spike. Jitters went 5 for 6, Tripled, Doubled scored 4 runs and 4 sb. Spike went 4 for 7, five times on base, doubled and hit TWO HOME RUNS! Looks like you two have found your strokes. Well done! Gotham batted around in the 5th inning scoring 7 runs.

Game 2

Game 2 was equally as exciting. a 6 inning affair, Gotham takes it 21-3. The same line up batted around three times: in the 1st inning the first seven hitters plated aces. Inthe thrd we scored 6 and in the 5th we scored 6.  Buste 2 for 5, 3 times on base, 3 runs, 1 sb. Jitters 3 for 5, triple, double, 3 runs. Walker 3 for 4, 5 times on base (1 BB), 3 runs, 4 sb.
