After the fields dried on Saturday, it was time to play ball. Pemberton Jumped out to a quick lead with three runs in the first. But poise and strong pitching from Jimmy Guida shut down the drive. Solid catching by P.T. Ranier helped Jimmy control the next two innings. To end the first inning, with a man on first Jimmy tossed a clean three strike "K". He then forced the final out with a ground ball to second to end the inning. In the second inning he faced four batters. Guida put away a high high high infield ball for the first out. With a runner on first, he nailed the lead runner in a fielder's choice, leaving the third out to Right fielder Kevin Kempton who caught a long high drive. Strong fielding followed in the third inning by Ryan McGowan, Scott Lattimer, Kevin Kempton and Anthony Montefusco.
Kevin Kempton threw three near perfect innings with Kevin McDowell behind the plate providing strong support. Again, flawless fielding by Anthony Montefusco, Kevin McDowell, Kevin Wagner and Michael Kempton kept Pemberton to only one more run.
The play of the day came in the fifth inning. With a man on first, a line drive was hit to center field. Matt Rosenfield ran the ball down like it had just stollen his wallet, coming up with a huge catch. Still moving, Matt saw that the runner at first had taken a few too many steps. Matt threw a bullet to first baseman Anthony Montefusco. The "pop" in Anthony's glove echoed in the park. Anthony didn't have to move his glove for the double play. The crowd went wild.
In the sixth inning, Matt Troost ran down a ball in right field and making a strong throw to second, preventing runners from advancing.
Offensively, Pro-Computer put up 7 runs. Good solid base running kept Pemberton guessing as only four men were left on base for the entire game.
To close off the game, Anthony Montefusco tossed one inning with two strike-outs. The final out of the game came on a pop-up just in foul, maybe fair, territory. Ryan McGowan charged and made a diving catch to end the game.
