Sandlot baseball: Linglestown surges into second place

Linglestown player/coach Ken Connor smacked winning RBI Sunday

Our hometown team, Linglestown Twilight (11-7-1), jumped into second place in the East Shore Twilight League by going 3-1 last week. Technically, they were undefeated. (You'll have to read the rest of this post for the story.)

Last Wednesday, Twilight traveled to Dauphin and won 4-1. Pete Hayden was the winning pitcher and Sam Nott hit a solo homer.

The next night at Koons Park, Chris Nolan (2-0) had a good outing to lead Twilight to a 9-2 win over last-place Steelton. Shortstop Andrew Roman had a great game, going three-for-four with a homer and three runs scored. In the sixth inning, Sam Nott put the game away with a grand slam.

Palmyra tagged Twilight with their only loss of the week Friday in Lebanon County, but it took some questionable tactics by Palmyra's skipper to get the 8-7 win.

After giving up eight runs in the second inning, Twilight, trailing 8-7, rallied in the top of the seventh inning to take a 9-8 lead. Palmyra then slowed down play to delay recording the third out and the umpires eventually called the game because of darkness, negating Twilight's two runs scored in the seventh inning.

The week ended on a high note Sunday at Koons Park with Twilight scoring two runs in their final at-bat to down Dauphin 4-3. Right fielder Corey Ellsesser singled in one run and player/coach Ken Connor got the winning RBI. Continuing his stellar season on the mound, 35-year-old pitching ace Pete Hayden (7-1) recorded another complete-game win.

Twilight note — Linglestown hosts Lawnton tonight at Koons Park, 6 pm. As always, I need a volunteer to operate the electronic scoreboard.
