New Berlin Athletic Association
Braves, Padres: The Padres started off the season with a fun game against the Braves. Both teams had some good hits and defensive plays in the field. Many of the Padres hits came without using the tee and a few even caught the pitcher off-guard.
Diamondbacks, Padres: The Padres batted through the lineup a couple innings and several players made good stops on grounders in the infield.
Braves, Astros: The Astros Sela Proctor, Emily Diodati, Jessica Kemstra and Rebecca Jegier were among the group of players with multiple hits. The defensive highlight was a great unassisted play at third base by Rose Reichert.
Cubs, Astros: In the first game of the season, the Astros appeared to be in midseason form offensively by batting the entire lineup in two of three innings. Kayla Kane went 3-for-3 including a smash off the pitcher, Coach Ron. Rose Reichert and Sydney Travers were among the many Astros to reach base multiple times. Great plays were made by Sela Proctor, Isabella Doucas and Maddie Schultz.
Rays 6, Mariners 5: The Rays played a solid game. Skylar Berens and Emily Siegel did an excellent job pitching. Good fielding was shown by Kaitlin Tadlock at first base. At the start of the fourth inning the Rays were down, 5-2. Sally Dettlaff kick-started the team with a two-run hit and the team scored twice more in the inning for the win.
Padres 3, Phillies 5: Samantha Lundin pitched two scoreless innings in her Girls Minors debut. Charolette Ropas crushed a pitch to left-center field for a two-run home run.
Angels 7, Mets 6: It was a well played game on both sides of the ball, with the Angels winning in the bottom of the seventh. Leading the way for the Angels were Dan Western, who went 2-for-2 with a walk, and Clayton Nelson and John Dougherty, who both went 2-for-3.
