Saints 0 – Diamondbacks 5:
The Diamondbacks came into this week salivating with the idea that they could start the week off with an early (9am) victory against the Saints. Unfortunately for the Saints, they could not put up enough of a fight to stop this from happening. I have to admit, being on the wrong side of results all of last season, I am pulling for the Saints (just not against my team). The Dbacks exploded for four runs in the bottom of the 3rd and that’s all they needed for a victory. Martin, back to playing stickball, started the scoring with a 2 run double. Joey and Anthony followed with 1 run doubles apiece to finish the scoring that inning. In the 5th, Joey drove in Martin to score the fifth and final run of the game. Jeremy was the highlight of the day for the Saints, going 2 for 2 in the game.
Saints: Jeremy (2-2, 2 Singles)
Diamondbacks: Martin (2-3, 1 Single, 1 Double, 2 RBIs) Joey (2-3, 2 Doubles, 2 RBIs)
Emperors 1 – Leland 4:
Leland was looking forward to this matchup on Field 3. Earlier this season when these teams faced off, Emps won by a run, on a few Leland miscues. Leland opened the scoring in the 3rd inning when Doug and Freddy singled in a run each to take a 2 run lead over the Champs. The Emperors answered right back when Forty drove in Mike from 3rd on a groundout. Leland made the game a 2 run difference again when Angel barreled around the bases for a solo Home Run in the 5th inning. Leland added another run in the 6th when Edwin took advantage of an argument and flew around the bases for the game’s final run. The Emperors uncharacteristically struck out a total of 5 times in the game and could not get a runner into scoring position since the 4th inning. In fact, that runner, which scored for the Emperors, was the only runner to reach scoring position for the Emperors throughout the entire game.
Emperors: Mike (1-3, 1 Tirple)
Leland Legends: Doug (1-3, 1 Double, 1 RBI) Angel (2-3, 1 Single, 1 Home-run, 1 RBI)
Gold 11 – Ravens 1:
The Gold is definitely one of this season’s highest scoring teams and they proved how good they still are by blowing out the Ravens in this one.

Four players had an RBI that inning, and Dusty obtained his 4th of the game. The Ravens got on the scoreboard in the 5th inning when Danny hit a sac fly for his team. In the 5th inning, Papo tripled in a run for The Gold. The Ravens had to say nevermore when the mercy rule was put into effect in the 5th inning.

Sugar Hill 7 – Saints 1:
Sugar Hill is making a strong case for being one of the NYESL’s best teams this season. The Saints were trying to get a win on the board when these two faced each other. Sugar Hill jumped out to an early lead when Eccy singled in a run in the 1st inning. They added two more in the 3rd when Cooks hit a 2 run HR. Another 2 runs were added on in the top of the 5th when Baez hit a 2 run, 2 out double. SugarHill’s final runs came in the 6th inning when Ralph hit a 2 run home run to put an exclamation mark on the day. The Saints scored their only run in the final inning when Pete Jr. hit an RBI triple. Hopefully The Saints can build around that and score more runs in the weeks to come.

Saints: Raul (1-3, 1 Double)
