Reese Leads Way Over W Philly for Lopsided 19-1 Win

Ethan Reese dominated the normally lively W Philly bats, and got it done on at the plate as well in the lead-off role. After surrendering a couple of singles and walking in a run, thanks to a super-stingy strike zone, Reese shut the door on W Philly and limited the damage to 1 run.

Reese followed with a scorching single after a battle of an at bat and The Rocket erased the brief deficit with 12 runs in the 1st. He would finish up the day going 3-3 with 4 runs scored and 1 RBI. The usual suspects were at it again mashing anything close to the strike zone. Abe Musselman continues to impress in the 2-spot going 2-2 with 3 runs scored and a pair of RBIs in 4 plate appearances. Captain Jeff Schwartz, who continues to lead the team in nearly every offensive category, went 3-3 with a triple and notched 7 more RBIs in 4 trips to the plate. While nearly every team in the league has a top 5 that can inflict damage, SLA stands out with a lineup that consistently bats around. Nearly half of the runs scored for The Rocket came from the 6-9 hitters who showed W Philly hurlers no mercy. 

SLA moved to 5-1 on the season with the lopsided win, and is geared up for a showdown with undefeated Randolph. But first thing is first, as The Rocket looks to remain perfect at home against a rejuvenated Simon Gratz squad on 4/22.
