Pat's Liquor ends weekend with two wins
By Misty Volaski
It's summertime in Ojai - and
with it comes lots and lots of softball games at Sarzotti Park.
The Ojai Valley Men's Softball Association accounts for a large
portion of those games.
The following are the results of the OVMSA games for last week:
Team Transit, 9, Outlaws, 5
Gary Jones led the Outlaws with a two-for-four performance, giving
the Outlaws two singles on the day. Transit standout Dan Allen
tore up the field, with two RBIs, two singles and a perfect three
for three at the plate.
Silver Bullets, 18, Diamond
Though the Dogs scored three times as many runs as the Bullets,
the Dogs protestedthe game, alleging that the Silver Bullets
had illegal players on their bench.
Pat's Liquor, 9, Ojai Sports,
Doug Colborn's three for three came in handy big-time against
the normally-strong Ojai Sports. Rick Vogel's two for two at
the plate was no match for Pat's Liquor, which nearly doubled
its score in the sixth with four runs in that inning.
Silver Bullets, 11, Valley
After receiving a beating by the Diamond Dogs, the Silver Bullets
rallied back again for a convincing win later in the day, keeping
the Valley Builders scoreless for the whole game, except in the
fourth, when the Builders drove in all of their five runs in
Diamond Dogs, 0, Valley Builders, 15
The mercy rule was called in this game, where, after four innings,
the Builders had amassed 15 runs to the Dogs' 0.
Ojai Sports, 12, T.A.C.T.,
Sportster Bob Lang commanded the field, going four for four with
a double. Jason Stitler countered with two doubles for T.A.C.T.,
which came close in the third with seven runs to Ojai Sports's
nine. However, Ojai Sports pulled ahead, scoring one run in the
fifth, one in the sixth and one in the seventh inning.
Pat's Liquor, 17, T.A.C.T.,
Though they were blown out of the water by Pat's, T.A.C.T made
a commendable effort in the seventh, when the team came together
to double their score to six runs.
OST, 19, Head Trip, 1
OST allowed just one run against them in the second inning before
driving in 12 players in the fifth to end the game in the mercy
Head Trip, 8, Joe's Quick
Head Trip fought hard against Joe's, who were in the lead in
the fifth and sixth innings. However, the Trippers scored three
in the seventh to pull one run ahead for the win.
OST, 11, Joe's Quick Stop,
OST pulled itself out of a three-inning tie in the fourth inning
with four runs. Though Joe's drove home three players in the
seventh, it wasn't enough to top OST, who nabbed 11 runs to Joes'three.
