Glen Cairn Men's Fastball League playoff update

from Matt Medaglia

The Glen Cairn Men’s Fastball League playoffs kicked off this week at A.Y Jackson ball diamond with all four top seeds winning their opening games.

Regular season points leader Taggart’s Welding defeated East Side Mario’s in the playoff opener on Monday night by a score 5-1. Trevor Watta led off the game with an inside the park home-run to take an early 1-0 lead, but that was all that East Side Mario’s would get. After taking the lead in the second inning, Taggart’s Welding strung together three runs in the bottom of the 5th to take a 5-1 lead. That was all that Taggart’s Welding pitcher, Shawn Ryan, would need as he cruised to the victory.

In Monday’s late game, Mattamy Homes defeated Don Cherry's 2-1. Mattamy Homes went up 1-0 in the bottom of the 2nd. Don Cherry’s tied it in the top of the 7th. Then with one out in the bottom of the 7th, Darryl Doxsee blooped a 3-2 pitch into right field to knock in the winning run for Mattamy Homes. Mattamy homes pitcher Darren Featherstone was able to keep the Glen Cairn’s highest scoring offence at bay.

Glen Division leading Broadways opened their series with Laurysen's Kitchen’s with a 4-3 victory. Laurysen's Kitchens jumped out to an early lead plating a run in the second inning off Broadway’s hurler Neil Cooke. Two innings later, Broadways capitalized on a few defensive lapses to score four runs to take a 4-1 lead. That was all Cooke would need as he held off a late charge to secure the victory. Laurysen's Kitchens lead-off hitter Aaron Amo continued to rip the cover off the ball and reached base in all four at bats.

The late game on Wednesday was highlighted by the pitching duel between ASAP’s Billy Gerber and Ottawa Home Services Trevor Scott. As expected, the two were nearly untouchable. ASAP prevailed with a 1-0 victory to take the series lead.
