ML Game 39


Moppert Brothers    5

Baker    3




Moppert and Baker squared off for the second time this year.  Baker was victorious in the 1st encounter in early April.   Moppert came in feeling a little snake bit having also lost all 3 games to Baker in 2007. 


Bakers first at bat was eventless with Donovan Davis making all three outs defensively (a strike out, a ground out and a pop out).  Moppert struck in the bottom of the first on a Timmy Quinn HR followed by a couple of hits Pete Mamola & Will Manganiello) leading to anohter run.  Baker went ahead inthe 3rd inning on 3 runs resulting from hits by Mike Newman, Nate Engleka, Nolan Derienzi and Matt Divis.  Moppert responded in their half of the 3rd with a run on 2 hits (Donovan Davis and Will Manganiello).  It would stay that way until the bottom of the 5th inning when Moppert struck for 2 runs on hits by Pete Mamola and Will Manganiello. 


Obviously a big offensive night by Will Manganiello and solid pitching by Donovan Davis were the keys to success for Moppert.  Bakers' Danny Healey also pitched a nice game going all 5 innings.
