Stealers Batter Anchor Dive; Warriors Win

In the Bob Owens Slow-pitch Softball League, the Cartel forfeited Tuesday to Softball Inc. In the remaining two games, the Warriors outlasted Speak the Word, 11-9, and the Seaborne Stealers continued their assault on the league by crushing Anchor Dive 25-3 by way of the ten-run mercy rule.

The game-one forfeit by the Cartel shows how far one of the league’s former elite teams has fallen. Cartel remains the only winless team in the league and now faces the possibility of expulsion should they forfeit another game.

Warriors 11, Speak the Word 9

The Warriors won their third game in a row by outlasting Speak the Word, 11-9, in game two on Tueday. It was the Warriors with 11 runs on 15 hits and three errors, while Speak the Word finished with nine runs on 11 hits with four errors.

Luis Alexander got the win on the hill for the Warriors while Gabriel Jagrup too the loss. Top batters for the winners were David Pierre, 3 for 3 with a home run and two RBIs; and Juan Santana, 2 for 3 with a home run and two RBIs. For Speak the Word, Sylvester McIntosh was 3 for 3 with a home run and two RBIs, and Jagrup was 2 for 3 with a home run and two RBIs.

Stealers 25, Anchor Dive 3

The Stealers continue to bulldoze any team in their path as they thumped Anchor Dive 25-3 to remain undefeated.

The Stealers are scoring runs at a rate never before seen in the league and shows no sign of slowing down. They pummeled Anchor Dive pitching to the tune of 25 runs on 22 hits and two errors, while their ace pitcher, Sam Ramos, allowed Anchor Dive just three runs on nine hits.

Edwin Sankitts got the loss. The Stealers were led offensively by Ronald Schjang who was 4 for 4 with two home runs and four RBIs, and Owen Pimentel was 4 for 4 with a home run and six RBIs. For Anchor Dive, Carmelo Torres and Danny Rosa were both 2 for 2 with one RBI apiece.
