Kars wins two vs WC Electric

Two well-played games of fastpitch softball last night in Fitzroy Harbour as Kars was "home" to West Carleton Electric.

Kars Aces 4 West Carleton Electric 1

Corey Costello earned the win for Kars while "US American" guest Bill Sherman of Elkland threw well in a losing cause for West Carleton.

Fitzroy lead off the game with Andy Barber doubling, taking third on the fake bunt/steal and scoring on Neil Murphy's RBI single.

Kars scored two in the bottom of the second. Chad Milne ripped a double down the first base line then scored on Chad Costello's high flying homer to centre.

The Aces scored two more in the fifth when Chad Milne walked and scored on Cory Alkerton's two run homer over the monster in right field.

Fitzroy had chances to score but couldn't cash. Jeff Barber and Derek Barber walked with one out but Costello induced a pop up and got strikeout to end the inning. In the seventh, Dave Bahm hit a pinch hit single and Grant Sherman singled. With Trevor Barton and Charlie Ross in to run there were none out and men on first and second, but Costello s4truck out the next batter and then got a double play to end the game.

For his complete game win and 16K performance, Corey Costello was the Caveman's Choice as player of the game.

Kars Aces 4 West Carleton Electric 3

In a very tight game, Kars prevailed with some seventh inning dramatics. Corey Costello got the start and went for three innings before giving way to Brad Porter who took the win in relief. Steve Cavanagh threw very well taking the loss for Fitzroy.

Andy Barber started off the game with a well struck solo homer to stake out an early 1-0 lead for West Carleton.

Kars evened things in the second. Chad Costello singled. With Cory Alkerton in to run on the "two out catcher", he took second on a passed ball and scored on Dave Tubman's RBI single to tie it.

In the third, the Aces took the lead on a Corey Costello solo homer which essentially was a slap bunt hit with such power it went about 240 feet over the fence.

Fitzroy ralled in the fifth. Dave Bahm lead off with a walk. After two strikeouts, Charlie Ross came into run for Bahm on "two out catcher" and took second and third on wild pitches. Ross scored on Andy Barber's RBI single. The ball took a wild hop in the outfield and made it to the fence, putting Barber on third. He then scored from there on Jon Daley's infield single to put the 'Trics up 3-2.

Kars looked like the were going to rally in the sixth, after Chad Costello singled with one out, but an inning-ending 3-6-4 double play got Cavanagh out of the jam. Meanwhile, Porter was throwing well, striking out five batters in the last two innings.

The Aces won the game in the bottom of the seventh in dramatic fashion. Dave Tubman singled to lead off, but was put out at second as Nick Ellis reached on a fielder's choice. After a strikeout, Brad Pender hit a two run walk off homer to left field for the win and to earn Caveman's Choice as player of the game.
