The Good: Michael Hellman, who like Bruggman throws a complete game, while giving up only 2 hits and one run. Now fans of the Ninth understand when Theoldguy and others tried to tell you this CovCath team is deep, very deep in pitching.
The Bad and Ugly: Nothing at all, not even the weather.
Pee Wee's Place
Offensive play of the game
Bottom of the CovCath first. Siemer walks, steal second. No outs, man on second. Waringing puts dows a great SAC bunt 2-4 to move Siemer to third. Birthday Boy Matt Klein hits a SF to 8 to knock in the first CovCath run. CovCath then goes on to scored a run in the 2nd, 3rd and 5th innings.
Defensive play of the game:
This play was huge! In Campbell County top half of the 6th with CovCath leading 4-1, #8 gets a base hit and steals second. #3 goes U-3 for the second out while man on second moves to third. #27 then hits a ball to Schlagbaum at third who throws the ball home to "Birthday Boy Klein" as the runner goes home. Klein throws back to Schlagbaum and then to Hellman who tags the runner out for the second but then the Camels runner tries to move from first to second but Hellman throws a strike to Siemer who tags out the Camel runner sliding into second. 5-2-5-1-4 and if you were there you knew this game was over.

Theoldguy would like to tip his hat to Mr. Brennan Schlagbaum, as today Slag did just a great job playing third base. In the game vs Campbell County today, Slag had 2 PO and 4 assist. Great job young man! Remember to believe in yourself, because I and your teammates believe in you!
