Game 1:   Natty O's 15  (WP- Jay Walle 5-3)  Nationwide Bombers 8  (LP- Yoyo Strauss 3-1 )  

The Bombers and Natty O’s squared off this week and they split their doubleheader. The O’s took the first game 15-8 and the Bombers won game 2, 13-11. In game 1, Yoyo Strauss took the mound against former Bomber, Jay Walle. Walle outdueled Strauss although Strauss deserved better. He gave up 5 earned runs. The Bombers usually strong defense made 8 errors, all in the infield. You can’t do that and expect to win in this league when you’re playing a team, the caliber of the O’s. Highlights for the Bombers were an RBI double by Flamm, Yoyo’s 2 run HR, and Moshe Tuchman making his league debut RBI SF. Rabinowitz’s RBI single cut the lead to 12-8 in the 5th but the Bombers who were missing 5 regulars didn’t have enough fire power to pull out a win.

Game 2:  Nationwide Bombers 13  (WP- Yoyo Strauss 4-1 )  Natty O's 11  (LP- RJ Seabeck 2-5 )  

The Bombers came out more focused in game 2 and beat the O’s. The Bombers built an early 13-3 but the O’s wouldn’t go away. They battled but came up short. The Bombers took a quick lead in the 1st, by scoring 7 runs. Yakobovitch led off with a single and Yoyo’s RBI double made it 1-0. Yakobovitch and Yoyo are the most feared 1-2 batters in the league. Ben Gutman’s RBI single, Shulie Hochman’s RBI double, Chaim Finkelstein’s bases loaded walk. Max Cantor’s RBI single and an error completed the 1st inning scoring. Going into the 4th, the Bombers were ahead,9-3. Then the Bombers exploded for 4 more runs. Yakobovitch hit an infield single to Kap Gun at SS after he taunted the Bombers to hit it to him. Yakobovitch gladly obliged. Yoyo’s double and Ben’s walk loaded the bases. Then team owner, David Flamm hit a grand slam over the CF fence. Team manager, David Finkelstein who was walking out to pish for his team record 9th time in a game, retrieved the ball and gave it to Flamm. The O’s had a lot of fight in them but Yoyo held on for the victory. RJ took the loss.

Notes: The Bombers are in first place at 14-2. If the defending champions sweep the Kings on Sunday, they will win the title for a 2nd straight year.
