Code 9 Runs by Cross Tech 10-0 in Five Innings

Oct. 10, 2007 — Danny Rosa scattered eight hits in pitching Code 9 to a 10-0 shutout of Cross Tech Tuesday night in the Hovensa slow-pitch softball league.
Although they had eight hits, Cross Tech just couldn't put enough of them together to get a run home. Code 9, on the other hand, only scored in two innings but both times they plated five runs, with the last scoring binge coming in the bottom of the fifth to enforce the 10-run mercy rule.
After Cross Tech failed to score in the top of the first inning, Code 9 got on the board right away with five runs on a two-run double by Angel Guzman and RBI singles by Rosa, Carmelo Torres and Dexter Skepple.
The score would stay that way until the bottom of the fifth, when Code 9 scored five more runs for a 10-0 lead that ended the game. They scored 10 runs on a two-run single by Rosa, an RBI double off the bat of Sylvester McIntosh, and RBI singles by Torres and Guzman.
Rosa got the win on the hill for Code 9, while Bill Harris got the loss for Cross Tech. Top hitters for Code 9 were Rosa and Guzman, both 2 for 3 with three RBIs, while Torres went 3 for 3 with two RBIs. For Cross Tech, Richard Sola went 2 for 3, Neal Davis 2 for 2 and Efrain Marcial 1 for 1.
In the night’s early games, game one went to the league-leading Wyatt Heat by a score of 19-6 over the Suns. It was the Heat with 19 runs on 11 hits with one error, while the Suns had six runs on 12 hits, but committed three errors. David Oetken pitched the win for the Heat, while Dale Harris got the loss for the Suns. Top hitters for the Heat were David Gonzalez, 4 for 4 with two home runs and four RBIs, and Kennedy Feist, who went 4 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs. For the Suns, Patrick Northrop went 3 for 3 with one RBI and Orlando Benetez went 2 for 3 with one RBI.
In game two, Softball Inc. blasted Master Batters 13-6. Softball Inc. had 13 runs on 11 hits with three errors, while Master Batters had six runs on 10 hits with two errors. The winning pitcher was Timothy Nelson, while Matt Loya got the loss. Top hitters for Softball Inc. were Aaron Smith, 4 for 4 with two home runs and five RBIs, and Scott Coward, 2 for 3 with a home run and one RBI.
