M 8/10/09.....DPC              21-25-5, 12-LOB.....11-INN
                     Hit Squad     12-21-7, 11-LOB
    In an epic first place battle the Press Club won its rubber match of the 3-game season
series vs the Hit Squad and, in the process, captured the ESCA Mon Nite League title.
The DPC finished 14-1, the Hit Squad 13-2, each team's only defeats against each other.
    The Clubbers never led until the final frame, the fourth extra inning, after trailing
4-0/B-2nd, tying 4-all/Mid-4th, falling behind 10-4/B-5th and 11-6/B-6th.
    Defense started the comeback win with a 10-4-5 double play ending the Hit Squad's
big 6-R/B-5th.
    The DPC scored 5-R, all with 2-outs in the T-7th to deadlock the game 11-all. The
rally was capped by Pat Zajch's Grand Slam. The first two Hit Squad batters reached
base in the B-7th, but the defense held and bonus softball began.
    Each team scored a single run in the 9th-INN with Bob Blair scoring for our lads on
an enemy outfield error and the Hit Squad stroking a deep RField sac-fly.
    The Press Club then posted the game's best inning in the T-11th by putting a 9-spot
on the board. Greg Polisano led off the T-11th with a single and scored on Erik
Schneider's RBI-1B to snap the tie. Chuck Marentette's 2-out Grand Slam capped the
scoring. The DPC sent 12 men to the dish to get 9-R on 7-H & 2-W with a trio of Hit
Squad errors helping out. A pair of 2-out basehits in the B-11th did no damage as,
fittingly, Marentette caught the lazy flyball that ended the game.
    Harry Penczak got the relief win by going 7-IP to allow just 2-R/1-ER.
