Over the weekend of April 27th & 28th, the Jersey State Bombers 12 Blue went 2-1 in a Tag-Em Tournament held in Hamilton, NJ.
The bats were definitely alive most of the weekend as the team pounded 11 home runs in the three games.
Ryan Graham connected for three home runs on Friday night, along with a solo home run by Ryan Feig and a two run shot by Nate Liedtka. However Graham was not done as he bounced back on Sunday with two grand slams in one game against the Hamilton A’s. Offensively, Graham carries a .630 batting average with 6 home runs and 22 RBI’s through seven games.
The Team is 6-1 so far with 20 home runs and a .484 team batting average.
On the season, Nate Liedtka leads the team with a .682 batting average. He also has three home runs and 21 RBI’s in just seven games. Sean Dugan is next on the board with a .647 average with three doubles and a home run. Garrett Carella is hitting .556 with two doubles and a home run.
Matty Christopher has played an important role both offensively and defensively. Christopher has 5 home runs and 16 RBI’s in just 7 games. He has really been dominating on the mound with a much improved fast ball. His off speed keeps hitters off balance and the positive behind it is that he can throw it for a strike pretty often.
They look to continue their season this weekend playing in Flemington, NJ in a Diamond Nation Tournament.
