Tournament Winner!Fred Stibor wins NetPlay May Tournament!

June 7, 2021

Lance Shull and Fred Stibor squared off in the May Netplay championship, both teams having advanced over their semifinal opponents (John Hoagland and the Koysto Bunch) in 5 games. The teams split the first two games at Lance’s Circus Maximus (20/20 design park), with the series tied heading to PNC Park for game 3. Lance jumped out to an early 5 – 0 lead in gm 3. Fred came back to tie it 6 – 6 in the 6th capped by a pinch-hit 2-run HR by Teoscar vs. Skubal on the 5 – 9. The bullpens were dominant and held it at 6 – 6 through the top of 14th inning, when Fred tallied the winning run with a 3 – 9 Chris Taylor triple and 6 – 8 Goldschmidt single off of Archie Bradley. Fred took game 4 by a score of 8 – 2 setting up a potential game 5 series clincher at PNC in front of the home fans. Maeda threw 7 scoreless as Fred clung to the 1-0 lead through 7. Lance tied it in the top 8th with back to back doubles from Moore and Mondesi off Antone, and took a 2 – 1 lead in the top 9th with an Arenado sac fly. With the bullpen burned, Lance was forced to turn to a fatigued Jarlin Garcia to close it out. Yan Gomes led off with a ph double followed by an Iglesias single to tie it in the 9th. With a fatigued Garcia still in the game in the bottom of 11, Fred got a 3 -3 HBP from Dickerson to lead it off, followed by a 5 -5 weakness dot single by Iglesias and the series clincher 2-10 ballpark single by Grisham! Very tight series with Fred dodging Lance’s massive home run power just enough to win the two extra-inning games.
