Red Sox Sweep GPMABL Awards

The Red Sox continued their sweeping ways by capturing both the Cy Young and MVP honors for the 2010 GPMABL season.
Eric Guise, known for his funny and random pre-game pep talks, earned the 2010 GPMABL Cy Young Award. Eric was a perfect 12-0 on the season, with a 1.48 ERA and league leading 105 strikeouts in 75.2 innings.

Cleanup hitter Jason Williams took home the 2010 GPMABL MVP Honors with a career season. He lead the league in Batting Average (0.492), Doubles (10), Triples (5), Slugging Percentage (0.857) and OPS (1.385).

Congratulations to Eric and Jason!

The Red Sox are your 2010 GPMABL Champions. They swept the A's in a best of three series two games to none. The day started with the completion of last week's game that was suspended due to darkness. Brett Hiett finished what he started, and pitched a complete game to lead the Red Sox to a blowout 15-2 win.

Matt Altomare took the hill for game 2 and pitched six shutout innings despite intermittent rain showers. The Red Sox bats finally got going in the 6th inning, as they scored 5 runs to make it 6-0. Eric Guise came for the 7th inning to shut the door and preserve the shutout. The defense was solid during the playoffs, and helped bring home the championship.

Colts 2 - Red Sox 3

In game two of the semi-finals, the Red Sox couldn't get the bats going and were shut-out by Colt 45s' ace Ian Downes. With the series tied 1-1, the Red Sox carried a 3-0 lead into the 7th inning, but the Colt 45s wouldn't go quietly. The Colt 45s scored twice, but with the tying run in scoring position, Red Sox ace Eric Guise coaxed a routine fly ball for the third out to clinch the series.

In the other semi-final, the A's topped the Phillies two games to one. The two teams with the best regular season records met for Game 1 of the Finals which was the third game of the day for both teams.

The Red Sox showed now mercy on the A's depleted pitching staff. The Sox offense scored every inning and racked up 15 runs in 5 innings. The A's managed just two runs before the game was stopped due to darkness in the top of the 6th inning. Since this is a playoff game, the game must be finished and therefore will resume Sunday at 10am at Richie Asburn Field in FDR Park.

Don't Call It a Comeback

Once again the Red Sox needed a comeback to defeat the Colt 45's. This time, it was the second round of the playoffs.

The Red Sox earned a first round bye, and took on the Colt 45's who defeated the Comets earlier in the day. Today's game was the first in a best-of-three series.

After a rough 2nd and 3rd inning, the Red Sox found themselves down 4-0. After chipping away at the lead, the Sox eventually tied the game. In the bottom of the 7th, Jason Williams led off the inning with a single. Bill Johnson put down a sacrifice bunt to advance Williams to 2nd, but an errant throw allowed Johnson to advance to 2nd, and Williams to 3rd. Steve McDermet was intentionally walked to load the bases and set up a force play. Will Caton stepped up, and worked a long count. With 2 strikes, he lined a base hit up the middle to seal the come from behind 5-4 victory.

Final stats from the season and today's game have been uploaded.

The Red Sox return to Richie Asburn field for game 2 against the Colt 45's next Sunday. Game 3 will follow (if necessary).
