Another Pitcher's Duel;Another Spirit Win

Joe never wrote a game recap fro last night....so,to keep the blog up-to-date, here's the game recap from the Spirit's website:

Jerson Perez belted a game winning ninth inning home run and Ryan Bicondoa pitched a superb complete game as the North Shore Spirit held off a late Sussex rally to defeat the Skyhawks 3-2 at Skylands Park in Augusta, NJ, in game two of their weekend series.

For the second straight night, the fans were treated to an outstanding pitchers duel, this time between Ryan Bicondoa (8-2) and Sussex righthander Matt Hirsh (0-2). The Spirit struck first in the second for a pair of runs. Luis Lopez led with a single to right, and after an Alex Trezza strikeout, Jerson Perez reached on a bunt single. Josue Lopez then singled to right to load up the bases. Allen Mottram then grounded to second to plate Lopez with the first run. BJ Weed then walked to re-load the bases setting the stage for Anton French, who drew another walk to force in a run and make it a 2-0 Spirit lead.

From there, the pitchers took over, with Bicondoa and Hirsh going toe to toe, tossing zeros after zeros. It remained 2-0 until the top of the ninth, when with one out Jerson Perez ripped his fifth homer of the season high over the left field wall to make it a 3-0 game. That insurance run would prove to be a critical one.

Sussex would rally in the bottom of the ninth. Bobby Gandolfo grounded one down to third, and with Luis Lopez in position to field the ball, the ball hit the third base bag and caromed into left field for a base hit. Larry Bethea then smoked a ground ball to third, at which point Luis' Lopez throw to second for the attempted force play sailed into right field for an error, putting runners on second and third with noone out. Larry Bethea then grounded out to second for an RBI, and then Jabe Bergeron did the same, scoring the second run. Scott Grimes then reached on an infield single to put the tying run on. After a conference with manager Vic Davilla, Bicondoa (8-2) convinced the skipper to allow him to stay in to pitch to Matt Ceriani, and the Spirit righthander rewarded his manager's faith, fanning Ceriani swinging to end the contest.

Bicondoa pitched his fourth complete game of the season, allowing two runs and six hits, walking noone and striking out seven.

The series concludes on Sunday, as Joey Siak takes the ball for the Spirit against the Skyhawks' Vince Davis . You can hear the game live right here on www.northshorespirit.com beginning at 2 PM, and the game will be aired on 1510 the Zone immediately following the NASCAR race at approximately 6 PM.

Boy, anon, that was almost clever. Kind of like when you're at your day job and you say "tree or petroleum byproduct?"

Nice to know I can be ALMOST clever... even when I'm not trying to be.
Don't you wish you could do the same?.
Doesn't being an asshat ever get tiring?.

Isn't time for you to go to your night job at the gas station, or is tonight your meeting of Bigoted Self-Loathing Homophobes Anonymous?

wooden said...

By the way, anon, check out your GED handbook's definition of sarcasm. Or did you leave that in the breakroom at Stop & Shop?

Only a bonafide asscatcher like yourself would talk like such a dandy. Now turn off that self-stimulator and get back on Match.com; I'm certain you can find a nice young fella for yourself.

Same as your father asks for from you?

Keep denying it, Roy Cohn - your bluster is fooling nobody.

And since when is writing like someone with two college degrees being a dandy? (Who but a latent homosexual uses the word "dandy?")

Oh, I forgot: You're a dropout from vocational high school...

If onlyyouknew how INCREDIBLY wrong you are; everyone else does.
You could inquire.......oh that's right, you already know everything.

Please tell us again how wonderful you are, there are no doubt a few readers that haven't caught on yet..... but they will.

The ONLY one being fooled is you.

Gotta go now, I'm about to piss myself laughing at your stupidity.

I KNEW you would outsmart yo' self sooner or later; suprised only that it took so long.

Oh, and by the way, I have noticed how many people have come to the defense of our favorite self-loathing, gas-pumping, grocery-bagging, bigoted homophobic vocational school dropout... I'll give you hint, since your GED handbook is AWOL, it's less than one.

BTW Anon.....nobody likes someone who hides behind an anonymous name and makes insults.

wooden said...

You're welcome, Dave. Always willing to provide a little entertainment in your defense -- not that you need my help, by any means.

Anon, "dare not tread?" -- Which comic book did you steal that from? If you'd been paying attention, which I do realize is taxing for your double-digit IQ, you'd know that I don't live in Lynn anymore.

But I've been back to visit a couple of times the past couple of years. I try to come for Brockton games, so just look for the 6'4" guy in the front row next year. You'll have on your hockey helmet, right?
