New Milford @ Salem

Blazers take a road trip to face the rival Cowtippers.


Game 1:  Kershaw @ Hutchinson

A Jack Elmore HR to lead off the bottom of the first and back to back doubles by Shaw and Zimmerman give Salem a 2-0 lead.

Top 3, a Choo 2 RBI double, Peralta RBI double, and Johnson 2 RBI double give New Milford a 5-2 lead.

Bottom half, Salem matches the 5 spot, off of Kershaw, highlighted by a Maldonado HR (he was terrible for us and we dropped him). 7-5 Salem.

Bottom 4, Salem scores 2 more, off of Kershaw, for a 9-5 advantage.  Absolutely stupid.

Top 7, Robinson launces a 2 run bomb to pull NM within 2 runs, 9-7.

But again, Salem matches that 2 spot in the bottom half on some more bull shit.

Top 9, with no outs, Robinson again goes yard for a 2 run bomb, making it 11-9, but Street gets the next three Blazers after than for a Salem 11-9 win.

Choo takes over the OL RBI lead in this game, with 101 in his quest for a 5th Blazer MVP trophy.


Game 2:  Tanaka @ Shoemaker

An Upton RBI single and Shaw 2 run bomb give Salem a 3-0 first inning lead, as they again jump all over a great Blazer starter early.

Top 2, Blazers bat around highlighted by a Choo bases clearing double for a 6-3 advantage.

Salem gets single runs in the 5th, 6th and 7th to tie the game.

Bottom 8, Zimmerman leads off with a double and is sac bunted over to third.  Ramirez is walked intentionally but steals second.  Castro walks unintentionally and Treinen throws a WP to give up the lead run.  A sav fly to left made it 8-6 Salem.
