Round 2 of the League Playoffs (Aug 2, 7pm) saw the top 2 White Stone teams face off in a battle between Regular Season Champion White Stone Behemoth vs the White Stone Leviathan. In their previous 2016 match-up, the Behemoth destroyed the Leviathan by a score of 21-7…and the score makes the game appear closer than it really was! But Tuesday night was different. The Leviathan just came off their 10-7 1st Round win and had momentum on their side.
The 1st inning saw the visiting Leviathan jump out to a 4-1 early lead—and it was a lead they would never relinquish. With a 7-spot in the 3rd inning, the score was suddenly 12-2. The Behemoth mounted a small comeback by putting up 4 runs in the 6th inning, but it wasn’t enough. The final score was Leviathan 14, Behemoth 7. Adam Andrus pitched another fantastic game, actually striking out more batters than he walked. Josh Watson blasted 2 homers, while 3rd Baseman Brian Wiemer belted a home run of his own. Some of the offensive leaders for the game were Josh Watson (3-3, 2 HR, 2R, 4RBI), Brian Wiemer (2-3, 3B, HR, R, 4RBI), Brian Zastrow (2-2, 2R, 2RBI), Jake Andrus (3-4, 2 doubles, 2R, 2RBI), and Luke Schweng (2-3).
The Leviathan improve their season record to 6-6, while the Behemoth fall for only the 2nd time all season (9-2). Congrats to the Behemoth for an amazing season, where they were definitely the most talented team in the league. 9-2 and a regular season championship is certainly something to be proud of! The Leviathan now move on to the 3rd Round of the League Playoffs for the 4th time in their history, and they will face Holy Name on Tuesday, August 9th @ 6:30pm @ The YMCA at Pabst Farms. Please come on out and support the guys! So far, our fans have undoubtedly been the best fans in the league!!! You guys rock!!
