33 runs = Gabriel moving family to Brazil

4 06 2008

The Men of Stone bats were alive on Tuesday night, as they put together the most runs in a single-game in their brief 2 year history. The MOS defeated the Divine Redeemer Crusaders by a score of 33-13. The excitement soon died down, as players and fans alike realized that Gabriel and Rachel Nunez would have to move their family to Brazil based on the league softball rules, which states…

“If a team scores more than 30 runs in a game, they must randomly select a player on the team to move down to South America to do missions work. The selected player must move within 2 weeks, otherwise the team will forfeit the game.”

So, after hugs and tears were shared, the team waived farewell to their good friends, Gabriel and Rachel.

Anyways, the game started off great for the MOS as they scored 14 runs in the first inning, highlighted by a Jake Andrus homer over the right field wall. The bats were definitely alive for the Men of Stone, but the the fielding was less than perfect. A few mental mistakes and a few hustle errors, and the DR Crusaders nearly crept back into the game. Another large inning by the Men of Stone had Josh Watson nearly hitting a Grand Slam, but the fence got in the way…but next batter Jake Andrus knocked him and Doug Harper (*whose hitting streak came to an end on Tuesday night) in on an inside-the-park homerun. Matt Sell also continued his good hitting, as he knocked in a few runs…pretty much the whole team hit great on Tuesday night—great work, men!

The 33 runs was, by far, the most runs ever scored by White Stone, topping last years mark of 20 runs last year vs. Westbrook Omega. The MOS now have won 3 straight, and look to improve their 3-1-1 record as they take on a tough Westbrook Alpha squad next Tuesday @ the Fish Hatchery (6pm). Please come out and support the Men of Stone—it’s Dave Fisher Athletic Supporter day at the park.
