Kiwanis v Hastie Fence:
The rain finally stopped, the clouds parted, and once again Westfield Little League was able to resume playing games. But for poor ol’Kiwanis, the sun may have been out, but the rain continued…. Hastie Fence was on top of its game right from the get go with Josh Mayo on the hill. Anthony Schabowski led off the game with a ringing single for Kiwanis. Jimmy Cloutier followed up with a shot to shortstop Cody Collins who made a terrific play and was able to turn the ever rare, 6-3 double play. Collins then almost made a fantastic diving catch into shallow left field off a Dylan Arooth’s Texas Leaguer. Collins would continue to kill Kiwanis all evening long. Collins recorded not 1, but 2 Home Runs over the right field fence, the last being a Grand Slam. It was a very long day for Kiwanis…
Kiwanis had some great relief pitching from Colin Cusack, Bryce Alaconis, and Cam Cusack. It was eerily similar to Tim Wakefield’s relief appearance in Game 3 of the 2004 ALCS. Coach Cloutier was forever grateful for their contribution. Defensively, the lone bright spot was Ryan Goyette who made two outstanding catches in the outfield during what became an incredibly windy day. Kiwanis took the 18-1 loss and there record fell to 3-5 on the season.
