2013 3CWL Week 2 Series Summaries
Week 2 of the 2013 3rd Capital Wiffle ball League again was truncated by rain, with 4 of the 5 scheduled
series being completed. On Thursday the league welcomed newcomer WTP in their inaugural series against
perennial Contenders powerhouse PVB. Friday night was highlined by two divisional clashes of epic proportions
and Sunday was a replay of the 2012 COWL World Series matchup.
The first series was played in heavy air and on a wet field as we had rain most of the day Thursday. With
PVB being home team on the only dry field - J&M, the game featured no score until the 3rd inning when PVB
finally broke the ice on a 2 run dinger by Dave. PVB was playing with 3, minus the services of Gabe and Brandon
who were on vacation. WTP got on the board with 1 in the 4th, but Dave responded with his 2nd 2 run dinger of the
game in the bottom of the inning. WTP could not mount a charge in the 5th and PVB took the opener 5-1 with
John Kepler picking up the win from the mound. Game 2 started out entirely differently as WTP held PVB to none
then exploded for 5 runs on their first franchise HR by Ryan H - a 3 run shot. PVB scored a lone run in the 2nd on
Jarren's 1st career HR and WTP blanked in the bottom. Dave hit a 2 runner in the 3rd and WTP again shot blanks.
The 4th was all PVB as both Dave and Jarren hit 3 run shots to take the lead at 9-5. WTP added a lone run in the
bottom, but Dave and Jarren again returned serve with solo HRs in the 5th. Ryan H. hit is 2nd HR in the game - a
2 run blast in the bottom of the 5th but it was not enough as WTP fell 12-8 against the pitching of Jerran. Undaunted
and seeking their first franchise win, WTP began game 3 as game 2, with 5 runs in the 1st as Ben D crushed his 1st
career HR. PVB responded with 1 in the bottom on a solo by Jarren. After holding WTP scoreless in the 2nd, PVB
evened the score with 4 in the 2nd by playing small ball. No score for either team happened in the 3rd. WTP broke
the tie with 3 in the 4th, off of Ben's 2nd HR of the game, another 3 run blast. PVB responded with 1 to narrow the
score to 8-6 heading into the 5th. After holding WTP scoreless PVB went to work, quickly getting 2 men on base with
just 1 out. With 2 chances to win the game with a walkoff, WTP pitcher Ben D managed to get Jarren to hit into a
ground ball force out - moving the tying run to 2nd. After an intense battle with slugger Dave Fisher, Ben managed
to get Dave to ground back to the pitcher, ending the game and giving WTP their first franchise victory.
For the series, Dave led all hitters with 5 HRs and 13 RBIs while Jarren added 4 and 8 in his first career series.
For WTP both Ryan H and Bend D had 2 HRs to accompany their 6 and 7 RBIs.
In another Contenders Division series North Fork & Chance laid siege to the Redlegs, with both teams being
fully accounted for on TLC field and the Redlegs being the home team. Game 1 was high on laughter by low on
scoring, with both teams thoroughly enjoying themselves in the process. NFC got on the board first via a solo shot
off the bat of Matt Cox. The Redlegs took the lead after a 3 run dinger by Brad Miller in the bottom of the 2nd.
NFC reclaimed the lead in the top of the 4th on a 4 run inning led by a 2 HR inning by Tyler "Laser Shots" Depugh
and 4 runs to go ahead 5-3. NFC carried this lead into the bottom of the 5th, setting up a wild comeback by the
Redlegs after HRs by Kyle Uhrig and the first of the year by iron man Blake Rinehart. This set the stage for a
dramatic 3 run walk off HR by Brad Miller to claim game 1 for pitcher Kyle Uhrig 6-5. Game 2 was a rout as the
Redlegs brutalized the pitching of Eric Cox to the tune of 20 runs, including 3 HRs and 7 RBIs by Kyle, and single
HRs by Blake, Brad and Travis Rinehart. Travis picked up the win from the mound. Seeking redemption in
game 3 NFC took an early lead after 1 on solo shots by Luke Detty and Matt Crawford. The Redlegs to 1 back
in the bottom on a Blake Rinehart dinger. Inning 2 was the reverse image with NFC getting 1 run on an Eric Cox
HR and the Redlegs tying the score with 2 more on a Brad Miller HR. After holding NFC scoreless in the 3rd,
the Redlegs claimed a 1 run lead on Kyle's 5th HR of the night. Facing a sweep, NFC retaliated, scoring 4 in
the top of the 4th on a monster HR by Luke. The Redlegs could not respond and trailed 8-5 heading into the
bottom of the 5th. They waisted no time loading the bases and had 3 chances to win the contest, eventually scoring
2, leaving runners on 2nd and 3rd with 2 out and the score 8-7. Brad Miller had a rare 2nd opportunity in the same
series to end a game with a walk off, but winning pitcher Luke managed to get Brad to hit a sharp ground ball down
the 1st base line that Matt Cox fielded deftly and stepped on the bag to secure the win for NFC.
For the series Kyle Uhrig led all hitters with 5 HRs and 9 RBIs. Brad Miller added 4 and 10, while Blake
Rinehart broke in his new flat tip with 3 hRs and 4 RBIs. Travis added 9 RBIs on a lone HR. For NFC, Tyler
Depugh had 3 HRs and 4 RBIs, while Matt Cox and Luke Detty had 2 HRs and 3 RBIs. Eric Cox had a lone HR.
In the first real series of the year between Champions Division foes perennial power house UMH squared
off against London power the Tigers. Neither team was at full strength as UMH played the series with just 3,
including a banged up Blake, and the Tigers had 2 new subs. Game 1 was a back and forth affair with the score
in home team UMH's favor 10-9 afgter 4. Ashley Flautt was nearly the entire story, crushing 6 HRs with all 10
RBIs to that point. After adding another 3 run HR in the 4th to provide insurance, Ashley closed the Tigers out
on the mound to win her 1st game of the year. All Tigers contributed with Kevin Flax leading via 3 HRs and 5
RBIs. Every other Tiger added 1 HR in the loss. For UMH, Dave Page added 2 HRs to Ashley's total in the win.
Game 2 was another nail biter as the lead changed in 3 of the first 4 innings. The Tigers laid claim to the game in
the 3rd as they pushed across 7 runs on 2 HRs in the inning by Chris. UMH made a valiant comeback with 5 in
the top of the 5th on the 3rd and 4th HRs by Ashley and Dave's 3rd of the game. With the go-ahead run at the
plate in Ashley and 2 men on base, winning pitcher Chris retired Ashley on a line drive to left field to secure the
win for the Tigers 13-11. Game 3 was typical of games played by teams with 3 players - they tend to run out of
juice and UMH was no exception on this night. Chris again put on a show at the plate, crushing 4 more HRs and
again every Tiger contributed at least 1 HR. In the end it was Aaron Flax getting the 17-7 victory on the mound.
For the series Ashley led all hitters with 13 HRs and 18 RBIs. Dave Page added a respectible 7 HRs to
accompany his 12 RBIs. With his bum wrist hindering him Blake Lansing was still able to hit 1 HR. For the
series winning Tigers Chris Garrard led with 8 HRs and 12 RBIs, Kevin Flax added 6 HRs and 13 RBIs while
newbies Dustin Fout and Aaron Flax added 4 and 3 HRs and 8 and 7 RBIs.
The last series scheduled for the week on Sunday was a replay of the 2012 COWL World Series between
the Legends and the Tralfamadorians. Alas, the weather again turned sour and the series was postponed due to
another 2" of rain falling on Sunday.
Upset Award of the Week
The surprise upset of the week belongs to the newest 3CWL team - WTP. In their 1st series
they were more than competitive, holding their own against 2012 Contenders Division champ PVB
losing 2 games by a total of 6 runs and earning their 1st franchise win in game 3 8-6.
Congratulations and welcome to WTP ! They will stir things up in the Contenders Division
and will get dramatically better in the weeks to come !

3CWL Wiffler of the Week Return to Top
UMH's Ashley Flautt
It seems only appropriate that the first lady to earn a place in the 3CWL record books
would also be the first lady to win 3CWL Wiffler of the Week. Ashley Flautt put on a dominate
performance in the UMH series against the powerful Tigers. Playing with only 3, Ashley nearly
single handedly lifted UMH to a series victory, crushing 13 HRs and 18 RBIs and gaining the
lone UMH win on the mound. Ashley is quickly becoming the most feared hitter in the league.
Congratulations to Ashley for being the Herbie Strange State Farm 3CWL Wiffler of the Week !
