Atlantics Upend Neshanock in Chester

The Atlantics traveled to the territory of Western New Jersey to take on the Flemington Neshanock in a town called Chester.  The town was having an anniversary celebration and as their guests the Neshanock and Atlantics paraded down Main Street through the town to Boro Field.

The crafty Neshanock borrowed Charles ‘Bugs’ Klasman from the New York Gothams to pitch against the Atlantics but while he pitched valiantly he would receive no support from their bats.
Ed ‘Pigtail’ Elmore tossed the sphere for the Atlantics and was backed by some fine defensive efforts behind him.  Matt ‘Krawler’ Kouyoumdjian was on his toes behind the dish making some nice diving grabs of foul balls.  The rare vintage double play happened on a fly ball to center caught by Sean ‘Toothpick’ Ness who relayed to Dean ‘Dreambucket’ Emma who short-hopped Krawler just in time to place the tag on a Flemington runner and seal the shutout.

The Atlantic offense went on a tear as Richer ‘Finger’ Effinger, Anthony ‘Willy Mo’ Stelmach, and Pigtail all had three hits each while Anthony ‘Dirty Pirate’ Cannino, Dreambucket, Krawler and Vincent ‘Tuna’ Aurora all had two hits as well.
The final tally showed the Atlantics leading by the score of 14 aces to none.

The second match began much the same way, this time with Illinois of the Neshanock facing off against Tuna of the Atlantics.
The Neshanock offense was again no match for the sure hands of the gentlemen from Brooklyn, holding the men from Jersey scoreless into the last inning.
With a nine run lead by Brooklyn and the final inning approaching a Neshanock rounded the bases.

  The small victory was short lived as with a runner on third base, the next batter hit a grounder to Willy Mo near the bag who quickly tossed the sphere across the diamond to Kevin ‘Flash’ Harrison at first, who then relayed the ball home to Krawler just in time to tag the last Neshanock out.  A double-play to end the game!

Dreambucket led the Atlantics with three hits, while Greg ‘Hawk’ Dengel, Toothpick, and Fingers each had two hits.
Rookie Richard ‘Cuz’ Baruso roped a triple and scored his ace as well as finely patroling the grass in rightfield.
