Royals 2015 Story "From Worst to First" click here (see story in menu)


41st RBRL World Series set as Royals down Angels 5-3 in "one for the ages" matchup. 

In another showcase playoff game in the Reading Babe Ruth playoffs, the Royals outlasted the Angels, 5-3, in the AL final at Symonds.
As a result the Royals franchise makes its way back to the World Series for the fourth time in seven seasons (winning in 2009/ 2010).
The Royals got off to a good start with single runs in the first, second and fourth as well as two in the third inning to take a 5-0 lead before the Angels put some heat on blue. RBI singles by rookies Matt Pepi and Chris Wheeler paved the way for veteran Mike Presho's two-run third inning single for a 4-0 lead. In the fourth the Royals tried to execute a first-and-third double steal. The Angels had it sniffed out but threw the ball away at third base to allow the fifth run to score.

Johnny DiMare was cruising through the first four innings on the mound for the Royals until an error allowed the Angels to get the leadoff man aboard in the bottom of the fifth. Pat Conroy laid down a perfect squeeze bunt to score a run while also reaching himself with a hit. DiMare was lifted for Presho but a wild pitch scored a second run and then a passed ball on a strikeout scored a third run before Presho pitched out of the jam.

That would be the only threat the Angels posed as Presho struck out the side in the sixth and rookie Matt Sannella gave up a harmless 2-out single in the seventh before getting the third out on a fly ball to Michael Miele in center field.

Royals: DiMare-5, Presho-2, Sannella-1.
Angels: Ehl-3, Sabatino-2, Galletta-2.

Royals: Sannella-2, Presho, Pepi, Fallon, Wheeler.
Angels: Galletta, Conroy, Geraghty (double). 
Editors note: The level of coaching, focus and intensity in this game was through the roof, borderline HS varsity level. The "moment" wasn't too big for any of these kids. A tribute to two organizations that have fun but still take the Spring League very seriously. -JP

  Padres make their third World Series in 6 years two in the Weatherbee Era

 Padres beat the Phillies 4 to 2.     Jack Walsh pitched the first two innings getting two strikeouts and allowed no runs.  The Padres scored one run off of two hits in the first inning by Cavazzoni and Bevere.  The Phillies were able to score 2 runs playing small ball in the second inning with Fiore and Fotino scoring.  These would be the only runs that the Phillies would get.  Nothing happened in the third inning however in the fourth inning The Padres were able to score a run off and hit and a few errors tying the game 2 -2.  The top of the Padres order came up to bat in the bottom of the sixth and with three straight walks and in with the help of the passed ball the Padres were able to put up 2 runs to take a 4-2 lead.  That would be it for the game as Fiscus shut down the Phillies with three K's.  All said and done the Padres pitchers got it done for the team today.  They had 11 strikeouts total and 1 allowed only two hits.  One to Bonnebeau and the other to Ucci.  Padres hits came from Cavazzoni, Bevere, Fiscus, Walsh, N. Gaudreault and TJ Kelly.  Jack Driscoll was a warrior behind the plate today taking a few lumps but sticking it out adding to the folklore that makes him "The Legend"!

The Presidents Pre-Playoff Power Rankings:

1.       Angels (11-5)   Odds on World Series Champion favorites when they are on their game they are head and shoulders the best team in RBRL.  When they sleep-walk through a game like with Friday nights 9-0 pasting by the Marlins they are beatable. Long arduous season playing with Roy’s required intensity can wear his teams down but they appear refreshed for another post season run.  Past three seasons for Angels (AL Final loss-AL Final loss- WS loss) predicting this is the year they break down the gate. Roy’s pre-season refrain of “no pitching” was quickly rectified on draft day getting a top 13 year old arm and with Connor Ehl’s breakout season on the mound.

2.       Astros (11-5)  In a rebuild year Chuck has turned some magic with less hitting but strong pitching and defense. Least runs allowed in the league by an 18 run margin. Often on the mound it is Petrillo and Gibbs and pray for rain but the formula is working and everyone “does their job”, players one through thirteen. Solid favorite here to return to the World Series for first time since they took El Prez’s team (Athletics) down in 2005.

3.       White Sox (8-6-3) Strange season for a team that should have opponents crying “uncle”. Finally peaking and at the right time, have gone 5-0 since the Memorial Day weekend meltdown versus the Royals.  Only the Angels have more firepower in their batting order and I am predicting that the schizo Sox advance past the Royals.

4.       Royals (10-4-2) Can’t take their record away from them with the least losses in the league but finished the regular season (2-4) and sensed some swagger lost during the final two weeks of the season.  Algeri’s post game speech on Sunday had a tinge of sadness in it (yes the man has emotions) as he departed for a short getaway knowing he may not be there for his teams last game. Team needs to improve from Sunday’s sloppy effort to see their coach back in the saddle for AL Final. Team is one year away from championship form in my judgment.

5.       Padres (10-5-1) Padres threw away “literally” their chance at the #1 NL seed in their Saturday showdown with Astros. They still have enough to advance to the Spring Classic.  The fun loving Pad’s are going to have to get more focused if they are to beat the hot Marlins on Tuesday, will be curious if there is any hangover effect from the late game collapse on Saturday.

 Barely on the outside: Marlins (9-7) Jack Malley’s three year plan  “man or myth” we will find out this post season. Regardless the “king slayers” are making Jamie Lannister proud these past couple of weeks.

Reading Babe Ruth players have a big hand in State Hockey title victory:

Dateline March 16, 2014 at the TD Banknorth Garden, current Pirate player Matt Thomson scored the game winning goal with a slap shot from the left point on the power play which proved to the difference maker in the Rockets 4-1 victory over Braintree.

Prior to that Jake Barbera from the Mariners 2011 class put Reading on the board 1-0 with a nice feed from Mike Thomson his former Mariner teammate. The back breaking goal was scored by former Angel Sean Verrier with a highlight reel marker after a nice rush and pass from former Blue Jay Mike Seibold.

Thomson left no doubt with his empty netter in the last minute for the final 4-1 count.

Congratulations to the many RBRL current and former players that are members of the 2014 D1 State Champs.
