It was a bad night for the Leviathan to turn in their weakest performance of the season, as they fell to Oakwood Blue by a score of 17-7 on Tuesday night at Mission Field in Delafield. White Stone had a tough time generating any offense, and they had an even more difficult time making plays in the field.
Oakwood Blue keeps the Leviathan from their first ever Undefeated Season, handing them their first loss of the year. The Leviathan finish the regular season as League Champions at 8-1-1, while Oakwood Blue finish 3rd with a record of 8-2. The League playoffs begin next Tuesday and both teams wait to see who & where they will be playing as the Leviathan have earned the #1 overall seed and Blue have earned the #3 seed.
Trying to keep up their winning ways, the White Stone Leviathan pulled off a great 12-11 comeback versus Divine Redeemer on Tuesday night to stay undefeated on the season.
Entering the bottom of the 7th inning, the Leviathan were down 11-9, and things looked bad. After the first 2 batters were retired, the game looked to be as good as over. But this season the men in red have been fighting up to the last out in every game, and this game was no different. The next 3 batters got on base, and up walked Matthew Sell with the bases juiced. Matt then crushed a line drive over the left fielders head knocking in all 3 runs and winning the game in dramatic fashion! As Matt was being mobbed on the field, the fans could hear him yelling, “I’m going to Disney World!”
Matt Sell, was the offensive hero on the night, with 2 hits and 4 huge RBI. Adam Andrus and Brian Zastrow each had a HR, with Zastrow also totaling a team-high 3 hits.
The Leviathan improve their record to 6-0-1 on the season, and face their brothers from White Stone Behemoth in next week’s epic match-up!
After a historic win last week, the Leviathan were hoping that there would be no “let-down” verses Dr Martin Luther Church (DMLC) on Tuesday night at Legendary Legion Field in Delafield. Thankfully, there was no let-down and the bats were banging as White Stone Leviathan improved to 3-0-1 on the season with a 24-9 win. The guys started hot and jumped to a 7-0 lead in the first inning and then kept piling on. It was 11-0 after 2 innings, 14-0 after 3 innings, and 17-0 after 4 innings. DMLC tried there best to make a comeback and strung together a handful of walks and a couple hits to make it 18-6 after 5 innings, but it was all way-too-little, way-too-late. The White Stone men tallied 6 more in the top of the 7th and the final score was 24-9.
Caleb Kruse pitched a solid 4 shutout innings and was definitely one of the big stars on the night for the Leviathan. The WS defense also pulled off 2 double-plays on the night, which are a rarity in softball. Some of the offensive MVPs on the night were Brad Fraser (4-4, 2B, 3B, 3R, RBI), Max Cavaiani (4-4, 2 2B, HR, 3R, 3RBI), Luke Schweng (4-4, 2 2B, HR, 4R, 4RBI), Kirk Hansen (3-5, 3B, 2R), and Adam Andrus (3-5, 2B, HR, 2R, 4RBI).
Team leader Matt Sell had this to say about Tuesday’s win, “I’m proud of our guys tonight…we could’ve come out flat after last week’s big win, but instead we came out punching. And when I say punching, I’m not talking figuratively—I literally came out punching. I kind of got into a scuffle with the tiger mascot from the other team. Anyways, after I regained consciousness, I knew that we had the fight we needed to come out and play hard tonight. And I want that mascot to know that I’m sorry for fighting her…and I know I always say this, but that’s the last time I’ll ever fight a mascot.”
The Leviathan are now 3-0-1 and look forward to next week’s game vs @6pm at the YMCA at Pabst Farms.
In the first game of the 2017, Leviathan took on Holy Name of Jesus Church, and it ended in an 11-11 tie. Though it was the first game of the season for both teams, the game featured solid defense and good hitting. Because of darkness, the game was going to be called after the 6th inning. HNOJ scored a few runs in the top of the 6th, but the Leviathan stormed back to tie the game and had the bases loaded with one out. In a fluke play, Adam Andrus hit a fly ball well into the outfield, but the Leviathan runner came home and didn’t touch the plate…he touched the pitching mat behind the plate. When the Umpire saw what happened, the catcher put the tag on the runner and it was a double-play. The umpire then decided to extend the game by one more inning, but both teams were held off of the scoreboard, with White Stone stranding a man on third base.
After a long and cold/wet off-season, the 2017 Leviathan Softball Season is about to begin! The first game is at 7pm on Tuesday (May 9) @ Fish Hatchery Softball Field in Delafield. Make sure you contact Adam if you have any questions!
In a game where the Leviathan trailed 0-8 after the first couple innings, the guys from White Stone kept fighting to come back. Their comeback bid came up just short, as they lost to Oakwood Red by a score of 13-11 on a scorching hot night at Missions Field in Delafield.
The statistics for all games this season, the ’16 season stats, and the All-time Stats are back up and running. Sorry for the inability to update them the last 4 weeks. Hopefully things will go smoothly for the rest of the season. Thank you for your patience.
