“You Know This Kid is Butter, Cause He’s On A Roll”

It only took one game in to the fall season for Ryan Graham to jump on the board. Home Run numero uno came for the stellar ten year old who can pretty much play any position on Saturday afternoon. Graham was 2 for 4 on the day with 3 RBI’s. The 10-0 win over GVAA in a league game put the Jersey State Bombers 11-U squad at 1-0 on the season.

As always the offense came ready to go. Matt Christopher and Cooper Quigley both brought their bats to the game as they combined for 7 hits with Quigley having four and Christopher with three. Carella added a two for three day with a bomb of a double that nearly went out. Nick Dziuba and EJ Mangione were also 2 for 4 on the day. Sean Dugan and Tim Heslin also added singles in the contest. The team put up a total of 17 hits with four doubles, one home run, seven walks and nine total RBI’s on the day.

Everyone is starting to get used to the bats pounding the ball every game but one thing that sparked a great fall season opener is the way the defense executed plays. With exception to the last inning on defense, the Bombers looked great. There was an excellent run down play on a runner going to 2nd between 2nd basemen Garrett Carella and 1st basemen Sean Dugan to get the second out in the 2nd inning.

Graham also had a nice pick-off play to SS Matt Christopher to nail a base runner with a big lead. Graham pitched three innings while only throwing 23 pitches. He only let up two hits and struck out three. Nick Dziuba pitched two innings with 16 pitches, no hits and two strikeouts. Cooper Quigley and Sean Dugan combined their efforts on the hill in the sixth to finish off the game.
