DPC SPLITS TWINBILL.....M, 5/13/13

    The Detroit Press Club team split its first doubleheader of the year
to go to 2-1 on the season.

M, 5/13/13...Game-1:

The Well       21-23-4, 9-LOB
DPC             22-28-6, 10-LOB

    After leading 15-7 & 17-11 early a series of errors caused the DPC to
fall behind twice by a single run and then tie it up twice before scoring
the winning run in their last at-bat.
    The Clubbers needed a single run in the B-6th to tie at 20-20-at the
time limit on an RBI basehit by rookie Danny Webb. Then, in an "extra"
inning, each team scored a run in the 7th-INN before the DPC continued
its last at-bat rally to win. An error by The Well let the Press Club re-tie
the contest at 21. With one run in, none out and a runner on third, two
Clubbers were intentionally walked to set up a possible force play. The Well
strategy backfired when Coach Kurt re-entered Brandon Proffer in hopes
of getting a sacrifice fly. Instead, Proffer delivered "the ugliest game-winning
hit" ever, an opposite field blooper just over 1Base that barely stayed fair
and brought home Joel Crawford for the walkoff victory.
    Webb was 4-for-4 with 1-R & 3-RBI, Joel Crawford 4-for-5 with three
doubles, 4-R & 2-RBI. Erik Schneider had a 3-for-4, two double, 2-R, 4-RBI
evening. Jimmy Walker went 3-for-5 with a triple and 4-R. Paul Mikula was
2-for-4 including a double, 2rHR and 3-RBI.

M, 5/13/13...Game-2:

Top Dog     25-28-1, 7-LOB
DPC           10-16-9, 10-LOB

    The enemy used their three homerun limit including a T-1st 3rHR to
lead all the way and continue their hex over the DPC.
    The Press Club closed within 14-9 before an 11-R/T-6th banked the
decision for Top Dog.
    Several of the many DPC errors were on throws the intended recipient
simply could not see on the poorly-lit diamond. The conditions were so bad
it caused a revision in the league schedule to prevent future second games
of doubleheaders from being played on Rotunda D#6 whenever possible.
    Rookie OFielder Mike Johnston went 3-for-4 including a 3-run triple and
Erik Schneider was 2-for-4 with a 2rHR for the Press Club.
