Hummers, Stealers Win Big in Bob Owens Action

April 11, 2008 — Three games were scheduled in the Bob Owens Slow Pitch Softball League Thursday night at the D.C. Canegata Ballpark, but only two were played, as 40 Caliber forfeited to Cross Tech.
The two games played were both one-sided affairs, as the National Guard Hummers and the league-leading Seaborne Stealers both crushed their opponents.
Hummers 20, Divi Carina Dolphins 7
In the night's early game the National Guard Hummers — led by shortstop Kai Schjang's three home runs and nine RBIs — crushed the Dolphins 20-7. The Hummers had 20 runs on 21 hits with two errors, while the Dolphins had seven runs on 10 hits and committed three errors. Jerry Vialet, the Hummers' ace just back from the Middle East, picked up the win on the hill, while Jeffrey Naar got the loss for the Dolphins. Top hitters for the hummers were Schjang, 3 for 3 with three home runs and nine RBIs; Arthur Canaii, 3 for 3 with a home run and four RBIs; and Dennis Carter, 3 for 4 with a home run and one RBI.
Stealers 23, the Cartel 13
The league-leading Seaborne Stealers did not have one of their best games Thursday, but what they had was still enough for them to storm pass the Cartel 23-13. The Stealers had 23 runs on 22 hits while committing two errors, and the Cartel had 13 runs on 12 hits while committing three errors. Stealers ace Sam Ramos picked up the win on the mound for the Stealers, while James Smith got the loss for the Cartel. Ramos helped his own cause by going 3 for 4 at the plate with a home run and three RBIs.
Other contributors to the Stealers' offensive outburst were Guido Schjang, 4 for 4 with two home runs and seven RBIs, and Freddie Pimentel, 3 for 4 with two home runs and five RBIs. For the Cartel, Darren Lewis went 3 for 4 with a home run and five RBIs, Wayne Scotland went 2 for 3 with two home runs and three RBIs, and Chad Alexander went 2 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs.
