5th MAVBBL Season Kicks Off

The MAVBBL started its 5th season this past weekend with the match of the week taking place between the Atlantic of Brooklyn and the Gotham of New York.  The clubs finished 1 and 2 in a tight Empire Conference race in 2012 and they opened the season this weekend in Smithtown.

Atlantic opened its 2013 season against the Gothams with a bang, banging out 68 hits to score 60 runs in a 35-6, 25-9 doubleheader sweep. After whitewashing Gotham in the first, Atlantic came to bat, scored 9 aces in its first, and just ran from there, scoring in every inning but the third. Dreambucket led the way, going 6 for 6 with a double and 2 triples. Shakespeare, with a double and triple, and Toothpick, with a double, each had 5 hits, while Wildhorse and Krawler (double, triple) each contributed 4 hits. Dirty Pirate and Blackjack added doubles, and Butcher had a triple. Hammy, between the lines, and the Atlantic defense held Gotham in check, as Hammy picked up the complete game victory.

The second game saw Gotham take a first inning lead with 3 runs off Tuna, but Atlantic scored 4 runs of its own in its half of the inning, then after holding Gotham scoreless in the 2nd, crossed the plate 11 times to surge ahead and coast to the victory, as Tuna and the Atlantic defense took control of the game. Dreambucket went 5 for 5 to complete a perfect 11 for 11 day at bat. Shakespeare had 4 more hits, and Toothpick, Dirty Pirate (double), Wildhorse (double), Butcher (triple), and Tuna (double) contributed 3 hits apiece to the Atlantic attack.
