Reamstown AA Reds win playoff tune-up
By: TROY BOYER Special To The Review, Staff Writer
In their last regular season game, the Reamstown Athletic Association Reds traveled to Newmanstown to play a single, nine-inning game against the Astros in Berks County Senior Baseball League action. The game did not last nine innings, however, as the Reds pounded out a 16-hit, 12-0 mercy rule victory in six.
The day was filled with highlights for the Reds, who had 10 players deliver at least one base-hit and two other players who drove in runs. Shortstop Ed Flinton went 3-for-3 with a double and three RBI, catcher Mike Sensenig also went 3-for-3, scoring two and driving in two, leadoff hitter Drew Anthony collected two hits and a steal of home, and Todd Adair had two run-scoring hits.
On the mound, starter Thom Achey pitched four fine innngs of shoutout ball to pick up his first win, making some great pitches with runners on base to induce three ground-ball double plays. Bo Keck, making his first pitching appearance of the year, threw the last two innings and hardly needed the Reds’ errorless defense, as he struck out five of the six batters he faced.
The Reds finish the regular season at 9-9, six games behind the first-place Legends Royals. At press time, it was still undetermined as to just where the Reds will finish in the league standings, but they will be either fifth or sixth to end the regular season. Their final standing will determine the Reds’ seed for the league playoffs which begin on Saturday and Sunday, August 13-14 at Governor Mifflin High School.
The post-season playoffs will feature a field comprised of the league’s top eight teams in a double-elimination tournament that will end the following week on August 20-21. More REDS, page B-2
