Game Results - Wednesday, July 23, 2014

In a suffocating heat, nine doubleheaders were sweated out with these results:

Harford County nipped Carroll Gray 12-11 in the openner; but Gray came back to double nip Harford 13-11 in the afternoon cap. In the May 7 makeup game played today, Harford beat Gray 18-5.

Howard County took 2 from Catonsville: 9-2 and 7-0. And, Howard won the May 7 makeup game played earlier today by an 18-7 score.

Parkville edged Carroll Blue 7-6 in the first game, but lost 13-10 in the second game.

Dundalk got a scare from the Old Liners in the first game, but survived and beat them 9-8. In game 2, Dundalk won 20-12 to extend their unblemished record to 38-0.

Greenbelt swept their doubleheader with the Howard Shockers 7-4 and 18-8.

Glen Burnie trounced Bowie Bronze 14-4 and 19-4.

Bowie Gold surprised Bel Air twice: 14-12 and 10-7.

Glen Elg smothered Reisterstown 23-7 in game 1, but the Reisters won the second game 20-16.

Howard Hitters took 2 from the Shoremen 15-5 and 19-2.

Bowie Silver was off today.

 

Game Results - Monday, July 21, 2014

Reporting from Annapolis:

After playing only a limited number of games last week due to the weather, there was a forfeit, and 8 other doubleheaders were played today with the following results:

Bowie Silver squeezed by Harford County twice: 8-6 and 11-10.

Carroll Blue barely got by the Old Liners twice: 10-9 and 8-6.

Carroll Gray socked it to Greenbelt twice: 20-14 and 15-9

Catonsville ran over the Howard Shockers twice: 17-2 and 14-6.

Bel Air trounced Glen Burnie 17-11 in game 1, but guess what?, Glen Burnie trounced Bel Air 16-8 in game 2--so there!

Glen Elg forfeited its 2 games to undefeated Dundalk because it did not have enough healthy players. So now it seems, after acheiving an unblemished 36-0 record so far, that Dundalk doesn't even have to play to win. (Unlike the Maryland lotto!!)

Parkville outscored the Howard Hitters twice: 13-8 and 7-5.

In 2 closely contested games, Bowie Bronze scored the winning runs in their last at bats in both games to defeat their division rivals, Bowie Gold, twice: 7-6 and 17-16.

Reisterstown edged the Shoremen twice: 8-7 and 7-5.

Howard County drew the bye today.

 

Makeup Game Results - July 16, 2014

Reporting from Iceland:

In the only makeup game played today, Carroll Gray won a doubleheader from their County Cousins, Carroll Blue, 7-5 and 14-6.

BSSL Records and Standings

Over the past several seasons, Rich Costa, who plays for Glen Elg, has designed and prepared a very creative and useful document entitled BSSL Records and Standings. It includes the results of the scheduled games as to wins and losses, the number of times teams have beaten each other and the resulting standings by division. As I have in the past, I intend to included this report in this space throughout the season. To view it, click HERE.
