Royals take Major 60 championship (June 15)
After starting the season slowly with two straight losses, the Gingerbread Construction Co Royals gelled to have a stellar season. They fashioned an impressive winning streak of 13-1-1 ultimately clinching the Major 60 Championship by defeating the Saltmarsh Insurance Giants 13-8.
It started out in the first inning for the # 2 Seed Royals with perfect starting pitching from Edward Roake, who threw only three pitches that turned into three outs. The Royals then went up quickly 4-0 in the first with timely hitting from Jack Collins, Gibbie Ketterer, Nick Rotondi, Oscar Lock, Shaun Garrett and Alex Fuller.
The Giants fought back in the 3rd to tie the game 5-5. But the Royals answered in the bottom of the 3rd with 4 more runs starting with key walks earned by Sean Boyd and Gus Gustafson followed by a big bases loaded triple from Edward Roake.
In the fifth and six, the game was capped off by some solid pitching from lefty Nick Rotondi, a big 2 RBI at bat by William Richardson, and some good pressure cooker defense from Liam Strachan and a final out infield play from second basemen Jack Collins to clinch the championship!
