Checchio Chiropractic Stops Jolly Trolley in Seventh, 4-3

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9

Mattress Factory Bounces Back; Pounces A. J. Jersey, 11-4

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 9

A. J. Jersey's metal bats did make a ding in the fourth with singles from Price, Ray Hurtt and Dave Rizzo but no runs were scored. The silencing factor in that inning was a smooth pitcher-to-second-to-first double play.

Now bouncing with ease, the Mattress Factory added two more runs in the fifth. Rowland sliced a leadoff single over short and sped to second when the ball was bobbled. Zippler punched a single to left and Rowland headed for home, but the throw home

from Price in left field was on the money and Rowland was ruled out on an extremely close call.

Next, Tim Walsh drew a walk, then Tom Perotta ricocheted a single

the second with a leadoff single past second. Keith Johnson followed with a walk, then Bobby Jones gave the Jolly men a 1-0 lead with an RBI sacrifice fly to right field.

Checchio Chiropractic also cracked into the scoring column in the second when Jason Geary hammered a leadoff home run over the left fielder's head. Later in the inning, Corey Hayes punched a single to center then scored from first on Mondelli's looping single over first.

Steve Walsh banged a leadoff single to right in the third for the Trolley, but a quick pitcher-to-second-to-first double play cleared the bases. In the bottom of the inning, the catch of the day occurred when Jones, the Trolley left fielder, skid several feet on his chest to snag a sagging fly ball off the bat of Dasti.

With Checchio's clinging to a 2-1 lead, the Jolly Trolley did some rattling in the fourth. Tom Jogis hopped

a single past the diving second baseman and Jason Swain singled, putting runners on first and second with no outs. Ruta hit into a fielder's choice, then Checchio first baseman Gary Ruban snared a pop-up and quickly tagged the bag in time to catch the runner lingering.

Oddly enough, Ruban led off the fourth and ripped a single to left. Jason Scavalla spread Checchio's lead to 3-1 when he smashed an RBI triple down the left field line.

Great fielding plays and gallant fielding attempts highlighted the top of the fifth inning but the Jolly Trolley managed to salvage a run to narrow the score to 3-2. Deacon Lottmann drilled a single past the outstretched arms of Checchio third baseman Geary, Jones dribbled a single between the gloves of Geary and Malta at short, then Erik Berger wiggled an infield single despite after a nice grab by Malta. With the bases loaded and no outs, Malta grabbed a sizzling grounder, stepped on second for a force play and fired to first to complete a double play. In the meantime, Lottman scored. Malta ended the inning with a brilliant diving snag of a grounder, combined with an on the money toss to first.

The score knotted at 3-3 after the Jolly Trolley clanged out a run in the sixth. Lee Marks hit a looper to shallow right which skid beneath the right fielder's glove, resulting in a triple. Phil Lottmann then launched an RBI sacrifice fly to right.

Checchio's went down quietly in the sixth and the Trolley went down in order in the seventh. Once again, Malta showed his range by making a dazzling play at short.

Leading off the bottom of the seventh, Malta beat out an infield single, Geary put runners on first and second by scribbling another infield single. Scavalla was intentionally walked, then Meyer gave Checchio's the victory with his single to center.

Checchio Chiropractic has been slated to face the Mattress Factory men who defeated A. J. Jersey in the semifinals to determine the championship.

off pitcher Sal Vella's leg. Up stepped mighty Scott Johnson. An extreme overshift was on but Johnson lofted a shot to remote right field. The ball was caught by Novy; however, both Zippler and Walsh tagged up and scored before the throw made it back to the infield.

Manzi's mastery quieted the Jersey bats in the fifth and sixth innings. In the meantime, the Mattress Factory added a run in the sixth. Joe Walsh walked, Masterson ripped a single to

left-center and Walsh alertly flew to third when the ball was bobbled momentarily. Fearing the effectiveness of his "thunder stick", A. J. Jersey intentionally walked Lombardi. Then, Manzi made the score 10-4 with an RBI single to center.

In the seventh, with Tim Walsh on first, the left handed, powerful, pullhitting Johnson fooled everybody and curled a double over third. Next, Clint Factor lofted an RBI sacrifice fly to center, boosting the score to 11-4.

Unable to shift the momentum, A. J. Jersey went down in order in the seventh.
