Leviathan take 2013 Season Opener

8 05 2013


The 2013 softball season started out on the right foot for the White Stone Leviathan as they defeated Oakwood Blue by a score of 7-4. It was an absolutely beautiful day at the ballpark (YMCA), and the fans saw a very competitive game by the two teams.

The game started with good defense by both teams, as White Stone took a 1-0 lead in the 2nd inning. Blue soon answered and tied the game up at one apiece in the bottom of the 3rd. The game remained tied until the Leviathan put up 2 runs in the 5th to make the score 3-1. White Stone’s good defense and the stellar pitching of veteran Richard LaTour was keeping Oakwood from putting together anything substantial, offensively. The game was still 3-1 until the bottom of the 6th inning, when Oakwood hit 2 solo homers to tie the game at 3. That is when the bats started to come alive for the good guys in white, as White Stone put up 4 runs to take a 7-3 lead! The inning really got going when Michael Javornik hit a 2-run homer, driving in Jake Andrus. Great base running and some good hits put White Stone in command of the game, and LaTour would only allow one run in the bottom of the 7th, for the final score to be 7-4 in favor of the Leviathan.

There were many stars of the game for the Leviathan, but the players of the game would have to have been pitcher Richard LaTour (7 innings pitched, 4 runs allowed) and 3rd Baseman and BIRTHDAY BOY Michael Javornik (3-3, double, 2-run HR, 2RBI). Even though the bats really didn’t come alive until the 7th, the Leviathan defense looked like it was in mid-season form. Other notables from the game: Rookie  Brandon Kane (2-3, 3 runs scored), 1B Terry Andrus (2-2, BB, run, RBI), catcher Luke Dye (2-3, 2 RBI), and 2nd baseman Luke Schweng (2-3, RBI).

Birthday boy Michael Javornik had this to say after the game,
“Tonight before the game I only had 2 birthday wishes—to get a homerun…and for our team to win! And wouldn’t you know it, they both came true!! What an amazing day!”

The Leviathan are now 1-0 on the season, as Oakwood Blue drops to 0-1. Next Tuesday the boys take on Westbrook Alpha at 7pm @Legion Field in Delafield. Hope you will be able to join us, as the first 10,000 in attendance get a Michael Javornik maple-leaf pin.
