Rained out at Rotary

    The Slammers/Sox game scheduled for Tuesday, June 30 has been postponed due to rain.

Howell under construction through 7/9

    Please check out the league schedule for a few location changes that were needed to facilitate switching some of the games that were scheduled at Howell Field between 6/11 and 7/9. Howell is getting some additional upgrades and will not allow for play on the diamond in the midst of construction. The City of Dayton would also like to extend an invitation to the league to the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new and improved Howell Field on July 8, 2015 at 3pm.

Brothers go back-to-back in Slammers sweep

    The Machine and Royals split a DH at Howell Field on Sunday, June 7. The Royals pulled out the secret weapon to snap a 5-game losing streak, bringing out former UNC pitcher Taylore Cherry, a potential 2015 MLB draft pick, to blank the Machine 1-0 in game one. Cherry allowed 4 hits and struck out 13. The Machine rebounded in the nightcap, winning 12-2. Pat Beyerle smashed a three-run HR and Collin Vinson added a 2-run triple to go along with his complete game win.
    The Rangers defeated the Marlins 20-1 at MUM. Ben Schubert homered and doubled for the Rangers and Schubert, Robert Riley and Joe Staten drove in 3 runs each. Staten's 2-run double in the sixth was his 200th RBI, becoming just the 7th player in MVABL history to reach that milestone.
    The A's swept the Wild Boars 20-4 and 17-2 at Belmont high school. Fairborn HS grad Kyle Keeton got his 1st MVABL win striking out 8 in game one. Shawn Haffner smacked two HRs and Joey Watson launched another to highlight a 16-hit attack for the A's. In game 2, Garrett Copas had a grand slam and 5 RBIs and Chris Musick added a home run, while PJ Dobbins tallied 3 hits and Matt Addis had 2 doubles. Andrew Madlinger scattered 7 hits to get the win. The Wild Boars' Eric Nelson doubled in both games to add to his 5-game hit streak.
    The Redlegs swept the Thunder 11-1 and 14-12 at Franklin Park. Redlegs second baseman Brandon Howard drilled his 4th HR of the season.
    The Slammers rebounded from a loss to the Knights on Thursday night by manufacturing a sweep of the Knights, 9-0 and 10-1, at Bellbrook high school. Brothers Dan and Todd Barhorst belted back-to-back HRs for the Slammers. Todd finished with 2 longballs on the day, scored 6 runs, and drove in 4. Deane Grandfield and Matt Owens had 4 hits each. Nate Stevens struck out 12 in a game 1 victory. Mark Hadaya got the win in game 2 with Jake Dodson earning the save.

Howard homers twice, Glass hits 4th HR

    The Machine and Rangers split a DH at Kettering Fields on Sunday, May 31. Jon Webb's checkswing blooper with two outs plated the tying and winning runs in the bottom of the seventh as the Machine won game one 9-8. Rangers' lefty Shawn Schmitt fired a 5-hitter and Brennen Glass hit his fourth HR as the Rangers take the nightcap 3-1.
    The Redlegs swept a split DH at Belmont high school, knocking off the Wild Boars 15-4 before rallying to defeat the Marlins 18-11. Jack Millard smacked a two-run homer to back up Kevin Campbell's complete game victory in game one. Brandon Howard played longball in both contests. Howard and Millard finished with 6 RBIs on the day. Campbell got the win in both games, tossing all 9 innings in game one, and following that up with 6 innings of relief in game two.
    The Slammers defeated the Thunder 13-5 at Howell Field. Slammers' Jack Zaborowski broke open an 8-5 lead in the eighth with a pinch-hit three-run double.
    The Knights swept the Royals 5-2 and 4-2. And the A's and Sox were washed out at Rotary park.
