Week 3 Game Summaries - 2015



The undefeated Nashoba Valley Veterinarian Mustangs (5-0) moved into first place, exchanging places with Drew Farms (5-1), a team that appears to be a strong contender for the coveted top two spots in the standings, while Floral Arts (4-1) sits in third place. Through four games, the Mustangs had only allowed five runs, but in its fifth game against the slugging Shortcut Landscaping (3-3), the reigning champs gave up 14 runs. The 19 runs that teams have scored against the Mustangs this season equals only half the amount that the next stingiest team (Floral Arts) has allowed. Pro Sports Therapy, a team battling injuries, won its first game of the season, and now all nine teams in the league have earned at least one victory.

Willis Tent 18 – Gutcheck 5 Willis Tent came roaring back from a recent loss with a mercy-rule win over Gutcheck on Sunday. Glenn Harding was unstoppable all evening, going 3-for-3 with a sixth-inning leadoff game-ending home run. Dennis Kane answered the call going 3-for-3 too. Rob Swinamer, Brian Gallardo and John Hunter kept the offensive machine running, each contributing with a home run. Willis pitcher Rob Swinamer was stellar on the mound. Dave Guthrie and Kevin Borselli laced them up for the first time this season and each contributed a hit for Gutcheck. Jim DeMarco was 2-for-2.

Floral Arts 8 – Burtons Grill 7 Mark Chambers homered in his third-consecutive game and added another hit in a close win for Floral Art over Burtons. Simon Tripp hit two homers for the winners. Burtons staged a late 4-run rally in the seventh inning that fell short with the tying run on third. Burtons’ Tim Scott went 3-for-3, Dave Batchelder went deep for his first home run of the season, and Rick Waldron and Jeff Kott helped close the gap with key hits in the seventh. Jerod Colley aided a fine effort on the mound with a pair of RBI.

Nashoba Valley Veterinarian Mustangs 21 – Pro Sports Therapy 0 Nashoba Valley Veterinary Mustangs hurler Paul Liguouri pitched a three hitter for the Mustangs third consecutive shutout victory. Ligouri added two hits and an RBI to help his cause. Don Cusano led the Mustang offense with two home runs and 8 RBI. Mark Cusano chipped in with three hits, including a homer and 4 RBIs. Other Mustangs with three hits included Paul Selfrige, Jim Ward, and Jack Erickson. Bill Knute, Dan Crogan (3 RBI), and Jay Dolan all contributed two hits for the winners. Solid all around defense by the Mustangs helped keep their shutout streak alive.

Pro Sports Therapy 14 – Healy Oil 11 On Tuesday, Pro Sports Therapy and Healy Oil engaged in another of their classic battles, with PST earning their first win of the season, 14-11. PST jumped out to a 9-2 lead, riding their most consistent offensive showing of the young season, only to see the Oilers put up a six-spot in the top of the fourth. From that point on, the game remained a back-and-forth battle. PST received offensive contributions up and down the lineup. Dave Chirokas led the team with a defensive effort reminiscent of the championship years as well as a 4-for-4 night at the plate. PST also got a 3 hit/3 RBI nights from Mark Urlage. Gary Royal, Rich Morin, Jeff Fuller, and John Bodi also chipped in 3 hits and Ben Armstrong drove in another 3.

Gutcheck 16 – Burtons Grill 4 GutCheck scattered 27 hits en route to a convincing victory over Burtons. Matt Sepe led the way with three home runs, two of which were 3-run shots. Rey Vienneau had one home run and another hit that struck the top of the fence and fell into the center field gate opening, deemed a ground rule double. Jeff Stabach and Jim DeMarco each had five hits and four runs scored. Tim Piwowar and Rob Rohlfs added three hits apiece, and Gary Lavelle pitched a strong game to keep the Burtons bats at bay.

Nashoba Valley Veterinarian Mustangs 27 – Shortcut Landscaping 14 The Mustangs withstood five Shortcut home run blasts by scoring in every inning to outscore their powerful opponents, 27-14, on Wednesday. Every Mustang had at least one hit and one run scored in the high scoring affair. Bill Knute (3-4, HR, 6 RBI) struck the big blow for the Mustangs with a grand slam after teammate Don Cusano (3-4, HR, 5 RBI) was intentionally walked with the bases loaded. Jim Ward also had a bases-clearing 3-run triple to go along with his 3 hits and 4 RBI. Paul Selfrige (4 runs scored, 2 RBI) and Jay Lincoln contributed four hits apiece for the Mustangs. Jack Erickson added 3 hits, 3 runs scored and 2 RBI. The Mustangs infield defense (Selfrige, Dan Crogan, Cormac Bordes) turned two big double plays to snuff out Shortcut rallies.

Drew Farms 21 – Willis Tent 19 With 27 years in the Westford slow pitch league, Drew Farms utility man Bill Faherty made his pitching debut against Willis Tent. A 7-run top half of the first inning gave Bill Faherty a good start to his debut and nice cushion to work with. Willis had a decent first inning, bringing seven men to plate and getting two runs back. But Willis Tent walked their way back into the game, patiently taking an impressive 11 walks. The third inning produced some more action as Drew Farms put up four and Willis put three more on the board. As the Drew Farm bats went silent, Willis put up three three-run innings to tie it in the bottom of the fifth. Willis took a very comfortable lead to the top of the seventh, but Drews came back, earning two walks and 10 runs. Willis scored two more runs, but stalled in the seventh. John Mangiaratti of Willis Tent hit a 2-run home run.

Week 2 Game Summaries - 2015



Drew Farms (4-1) sits in first place after two weeks of softball. But the reigning champs Nashoba Valley Veterinarian Mustangs (3-0) are eager to reclaim that top position in the standings. It’s a perch they’re used to. The Mustangs have started the season in a way, even considering the fact that they’ve won four championships in the past six years, which outshines previous starts. The Mustangs have scored 55 runs in their first three games and only allowed 5 runs! There is no team in the league that comes close to their runs-scored to runs-allowed differential of + 50 runs.

Willis Tent 17 – Burtons Grill 9 Willis jumped out to an early 11-0 lead on Tueaday night, but Burton's fought back to close within three before Brian Gallardo (2 HRs) and Mike Ellis hit homers in top of 7th to pull away. Jeff Briggs added 3 hits for Willis. Jerry Breen and rookie Steve Sawyer, both hitting their first home runs of the season, led Burtons offensively. Kieran Murray had a 3-hit night and Tim Scott's aggressive speed on the base paths continued to result in run scoring opportunities.

Floral Arts 11 – Shortcut Landscaping 9 Strong pitching and good defense were the key ingredients in Floral’s win on Tuesday night. Jim Peloquin threw seven strong innings and Mike Alonardo, Rob Beaudette, and Ken Delaney homered in support. Chad Kirby made a great diving catch in left field for Floral. Dave Sullivan, Jason Humphries and Chris Clark provided strong offense for Shortcuts and Steve Jacobsmeier made some excellent plays at first base.

Drew Farms 16 – Pro Sports Therapy 14 Drew Farms continues to roll as they edged out PST, 16-14, on Wednesday night. Drews laced 19 hits from 11 of 12 players which resulted in Drews scoring in 6 of 7 innings.  PST fielded an undermanned squad that went down big early, came back to tie it up at 14-all in the sixth inning, only to see Drews win it in the seventh. Pat Pawlak hit a key home run in the 6th inning for Drews, who scored the majority of their runs with 2 outs. Alex Lelchook went 3-3 with a walk, while 6 other batters produced 2 hits apiece (Pawlak, Jason Goldthwaite, Tom Milanette, Rob O’Neal, Scott Cole and Joe Welch).  For PST, Ben Armstrong hit a homer and notched 3 RBI, Andrew Fletcher had 3 hits (including two doubles), and Ryan Steele was 3-for-3 with a HR before being injured.

Shortcut Landscaping 18 – Gutcheck 3 GutCheck spotted SCL a quick and unlucky 13 runs in the first inning, and never managed to climb back from the deficit. Despite the l;oss, there were some highlights for Gutcheck, including Rob Rohlfs’ over-the-shoulder running catch in center field and a two-run home run by Darren Wiszt.

Floral Arts 18 – Willis Tent 4 On Friday night, Larry Mardany pitched a gem, holding the potent Willis bats to one home run, while Floral offense pounded out five long balls en route to 18 runs. Mark Chambers led the way, going 3-for-3 with a home run. Greg Marchand, Jim Peloquin, Ken Delaney, and Rob Beaudette also went deep. Willis’ Andrew Metters went 2-for-2 with Steve Damiani contributing with a two-run homer.

Nashoba Valley Veterinarian Mustangs 22 – Healy Oil 0 The Mustangs continued their hot start with their third-straight mercy-rule win to begin the season and second consecutive shutout. Pitcher Don Cusano threw a two hitter for his second shutout of the early season. He added a home run and three RBI at the plate. Jim Ward set the table with four hits and three runs scored. Mike Kennedy added three hits, including a long home run and four RBI. He was also outstanding defensively at third base. Lefties Jack Erickson and Bill Knute contributed home runs for the Mustangs as well.

Drew Farms 14 – Shortcut Landscaping 9  Outstanding defense, solid pitching and timely hitting up and down the lineup resulted in a key win for Drews. Despite starting the game with only 9 players and giving up 3 first inning runs, Drews never quit scoring in all but the first. The ageless Scott Cole continued his torrid start to the year, while Jason Goldthwaite hit a key home run. Once again, Drews scored often with 2 outs.
