Burgess bats rocked and rolled to an 8-2 win behind strength of 3 ballpark HRs. Two of these were courtesy the card of Phil Hughes (L,1-1, 5.01), specifically both were 6-11 rolls. Delgado and Lofton were the benefactors of such largesse.Jeremy Hermida played longball off his own card. All took advantage of the beautiful weather and Bruton Parish Commons short right field wall. Conversely, the Greenheads had an all right handed lineup enfeebled by the long distance to the left field wall. Correia goes to 4-0, 3.03.

Anthony Reyes* was faithful to his butcher card but nevertheless kept the Burgesses close through 6 yielding 5 runs in 6 IP as Woody Williams had his own set of problems. Woody though is a 6N hitter and this paid off big when Reyes served up one of his HR chances and Woody converted for a 2 out 2 run HR. The Burgess bullpen has been one of the best with a stellar ERA tarnished only some dismal outings by Dallas L7L Braden who often plays our mop-up man. In this game, it was close in the 9th when he was brought in to face two LHBs, Pie and Church. He got neither out and then Braden was left in to mop-up. Mike Wuertz took the loss (L, 0-1, 2.54) while David Riske was a perfect foil for the Burgess lineup and he picked up the win with 2 stellar IP (W, 2-1, 2.81).
