After a week hiatus, the OCWA returned to the field to play a few games. This week featured another no hitter and a ten inning game—all in the same series. Here’s a game-by-game recap:
SATURDAY, JUNE 14- Freaky Franchise at Lil Pens
Game 1: Freaky Franchise 12, Lil Pens 10
WP: Tomkins (5-0)LP: St. Ours (0-3)SV: R. Bush (1)
This game was a struggle right to the end. St. Ours matched Ryan Bush in homers in a walk fest, but Bush closed it down in the end.
Game 2: Freaky Franchise 21, Lil Pens 6
WP: Tomkins (6-0)LP: D. Bush (1-2)
Papa Bush got lit up in this one as Son Bush had 4 homers, while Nephew Tomkins had 1. St. Ours homered for the Pens in the first but Ryan Bush put on a show to end it.
SATURDAY, JUNE 14- Freaky Franchise at HTML
Game 1: HTML 11, Freaky Franchise 0
WP: Coykendall (2-0)LP: Tomkins (6-1)
Coyk threw a no hitter, and then he hit two bombs. Roeder also hit one out for HTML, but this was Coyk’s game.
Game 2: HTML 1, Freaky Franchise 0 (10 innings)
WP: Roeder (2-0)LP: R. Bush (3-2)
This game was destined to end on a random homer and it happened in the bottom of the 10th off of the bat of Coyk. Bush and Coyk both broke the batting strikeout record in the longest regular season game in OCWA history.
SATURDAY, JUNE 14- HTML at FOY Boys
Game 1: HTML 15, FOY Boys 0
WP: Turner (1-0)LP: Barber (0-1)
This game got ugly fast as the FOY Boys are still trying different pitchers. Two homers a piece for Roeder and Turner, but the Turner no-hitter was broken up by the return of Bacon.
Game 2: HTML 5, FOY Boys 0
WP: Coykendall (3-0)LP: Kloos (0-1)
A Coyk homer helped put HTML up by 5 in the second but that was the end of the scoring. HTML extended their scoreless inning streak to 30 innings.
HITTER OF THE WEEK: Tim Coykendall- 8/30, 4 HR, 13 RBI
PITCHER OF THE WEEK: Tim Coykendall- 8 IP, 2-0, 0 ER, 20 K, 1 no hitter
