Larry Greenwich Jr. was just one of the many players who came up big at the plate Sunday to help the Top Lumber Expos top the Media Mustangs twice, 13-10 and 10-0, to advance to the Delco MSBL championship series.
Greenwich had two hits and two RBIs in Game 2 to help even the best-of-3 series and then belted three doubles and drove in three runs to give the Expos a 2-1 series victory.
Gabe Encarnacion, Andrew DeGaetano and Ed Bahamonde also had two hits and two RBIs in the opener. Kyle Gaffney belted a homer and drove in two runs and Matt Nelso added a two-run double. Gaffney and Ben Mutz teamed up to handle the pitching duties.
Mutz and David Dragone combined on a one-hitter in Game 3. Mutz also had a hit and an RBI, as did Bahamonde, DeGaetano, Champ Sanchez and Anthony DiGregorio. Kevin Archer added two hits and two RBIs.
The Expos will take on the winner of the series between the Glen Mills Rays and Wrong Crowd Beer Company in the finals.
Tommy “Hit Man” Nardelli lived up to his moniker for Behmke Construction Sunday. Brian Gross and Ernie Manna could have been given that handle, too.
Nardelli belted a three-run dinger, and Gross and Manna both went yard in Game 3 to lead Behmke to the Millennium Sunday League B Division title with a victory over Opendaker Trash Removal.
Behmke won Games 1 and 3, 17-7 and 17-6, and dropped Game 2, 9-7.
Behmke scored nine times in the third inning to break the deciding game open. Jon Kearney picked up his second win of the day. In Game 1, Dan Santosusso, Jay Gravatt and Mark Ioannidis went 3-for-3 to pace the offense.
