MERCY MONDAY IN BOB OWENS ACTION

Mercy was the word Monday night in the Bob Owens Slowpitch Summer League as all the games lasted only five innings due to the 10-run "mercy" rule.
In the first game scheduled to go six innings at D.C. Canegata Ballpark, Dave Schjang's grand slam in the second inning helped put the game away as 40-Caliber won its second straight with a 16-2 win over Guidance.
Tony Perez (4-2) got the win while Dee King (2-2) picked up the loss, snapping Guidance's two-game winning streak. Schjang (2-3, 2 HR, 5 RBI) led 40-Caliber, which also got home runs from Luis Cintron (3-4, HR, 5 RBI) and Michael Schjang Jr. (2-4, HR). Alex Gonzalez (2-2, RBI) got half of Guidance's runs.
In the second game, the Stealers and Most High were tied 3-3 after one inning. In the top of the second, Ronald Schjang Jr.'s triple drove in Jose McGregor to give the Stealers the lead. The Stealers easily handed Most High its second straight loss 18-4.
With the win, Samuel Ramos (4-0) remained unbeaten. Gregory Francis (1-3) suffered the loss.
The Stealers got five home runs from five different people: Guido Schjang (2-3, HR, 3 RBI); Ronald Schjang Jr. (3-4, HR, 2 RBI); Dave Davis (2-3, HR, 2 RBI); Valentine Bridgewater (HR) and Jose McGregor (HR).
The bats for Most High belonged to Eddie Ogarro (2-3, HR) and Randy Rissing (1-1, RBI).
Meanwhile, Junior Antoine (3-3, 2 HR, 7 RBI) blasted a three-run home run in the second and a two-run dinger in the third, as Anchor Dive snapped a two-game slide and kept Xtreme Danger Too winless on the season with a 21-4 win.
Steve Nisky (2-2) was the winner and Clifton Haywood (0-2) was tagged with the loss. Foro Ortiz (3-4, HR, 4 RBI) had a grand slam in the fifth and Danny Rodriguez (3-3, 3 RBI) tripled in the winning cause.
