Enquiro Ligers Drop to 1-4 on the Season with Loss to Blue Jays
Tuesday, May 12, 2009
The Enquiro Ligers dropped their fourth ballgame of the season with a 30-7 loss to the Blue Jays. Tied after two innings, the Jays opened up with the bats as they produced a couple of seven run innings quickly running up the score. "They were a really good hitting team", said Ligers Center Fielder Streve Herrington, "... they were able to place their hits pretty much anywhere...".

Playing under the lights for the first time the season, many of the Ligers players said it took time to adjust to the lighting of the ball park. It didn't seem to affect the Blue Jays though as they were strong in the field and on the bases. Veteran first baseman Bill Barnes played in his first game of the year making some great catches at first base with some decent hitting to contribute, showing no signs of early season rust. "He looks lighter on his feet this year" quipped one of the fans, "he must be on a good off season program..."

The Ligers received some great batting from SS Ian Everdell and LF Jody Nimetz as both went 3-3 with a single, double and triple. "I was looking to get a chance to hit for the cycle" mentioned Nimetz when Ian added "... I was hoping to join you in hitting for the cycle.."

It looks like the Ligers still need to work on base running as they continued to strand runners on the bags. If you look at some of the other teams that we've played, they are very aggressive running the bags. They always turn a single into a double or triple." says Nimetz. It didn't help that the Ligers had a couple of overthrows and missed catches that contributed to a very fast running Jays team. In their only win of the season, the Ligers were more aggressive with their running game. Look for improvements as the Ligers hope to snap their current two game losing streak next Monday, May 18th.

A couple of the Ligers questioned why the Blue Jays were in this division as they are a little more competitive and skilled than most teams in the League. Ligers right fielder Jason Lane commented, "The Jays are probably the best team that we have faced in the past three years. They are a very good ball team." Some would suggest a little too good for this league.

The Ligers were without Ryan Wood, Doug Moore and Kate Gardam. Playing in her first game of the year was Liger newcomer Cindy Danielson. Cindy performed well in playing Rover for the Ligers. She's got a great arm and is a welcome addition to the team.

Late in the game the Jays third baseman completely overthrew a play to first base as he chucked the ball way over the Ligers dugout and into the stands, prompting the ever trash talking Nimetz to suggest "it's time to get off the juice" to the third baseman. A few members of the crowd chuckled over the comment. Nimetz was later overheard saying that "if I hit to him, he's probably going to throw it at my head if he gets the chance." Nimetz was a little frustrated withthe fact that the Jays were continuing to run up the score. "It's tough to be out in the field when these guys have a twenty run lead and they're running the bags like it's the World Series. This is just not the league for that. I was embarrassed for them."

The Ligers will be seeking a better outcome next game.
