Well, well, well. The Giants upped their record to 3-0 with an impressive showing against Medford Lakes Team# 2. When a team pitches and hits well, victories are imminent. Chris Rabbutino threw three innings giving up 2 hits, 1 walk, and no runs. Oh, by the way, did I mention he struck out 9 batters? Chris throws the ball so hard, catchers Ryan Barbera and Kristoffer Parker said they needed extra padding in their glove.
Rabbutino was backed up by another solid pitcher, Robbie Hanold. Hanold pitched two innings and racked up 6 strikeouts, and one walk. Hanold gave up an RBI to Lakes slugger Healy. Healy drove a ball hard into left center field and scored his teammate all the way from first base. Thanks to the speedster Nathan Cohen, he held Healy to only two bases.
The Giants offense yielded runs when Ryan Dooley led off the first inning with a line drive single. Nick Santangello smacked a single to move Dooley over to second base. Up stepped Rabbutino who drove a ball deep into center field to score Dooley. In the second inning it was all about Anthony Maladra. Maladra had team mates Trevor Gulledge and Ed Moody on base when he ripped a line drive single into center field for the RBI.
Coaches Gary Barbera, Scott Donnelly, and Rob Dirscherl challenged the boys to a running duel after the game. If one of the boys beats the coaches time around the bases, it's ice cream all around. Sorry boys, no trip to Coneheads just yet - better work on those wheels. Looks like the old geezers won this one. Well, there's always next time.
The Giants next game is against another tough team, the Medford Police Officers Association on Wednesday 5:30 field #2. Go Giants.
