Game One was no ordinary quiet 11 AM early start half asleep softball affair.
It was an intense SB WAR!!!! and as the saying goes War is Hell!
WC ace Franny Donovan
was on his game both on the mound and at the plate. Franny not only limited HK to 3 runs on the hill but also drove in 2 key runs with long sacrifice flies. However, HK fought back admirably from an early 4-1 deficit to get the tying and winning runs on base in the 6th and 7th, but Fran got the tough outs when he needed to to preserve the victory.
Game Two wasn't a war but rather a minor scurmmage as HK's Jimmy Meyers, who pitched a fine game one, also threw the second end of the double header and was brilliant. Jimmy threw a one hit shutout and gave HK a much needed spilt. The offense in game two was a team wide effort highlighted by a bases clearing triple by HK right center fielder Arron Fernandez.
Edgar Jr. sat out both games with an undisclosed injury but to his credit stayed their all day to support his team, John Sheppard left after game one b/c of sickness, Jimmy Meters return to the rotation bodes well for HK in the 2nd half, HK needed more guys to show up on time for the early 11AM start, everyone loves to see Ricky run it makes even the most grumpiest HK player laugh, Gubi is a clown but he is playing very hard, Dino is playing a solid shortstop and rebounding nicely from a shoulder injury, flying quietly under the radar is Eddie "Chino" Colon who is having a solid season, HK overall has done a better job getting enough guys to show up this year than last but now its time to step it up a notch.
Game 2 was an after thought as all the note worthy action occured in game 1.
