‘Frolander and Bill Take Charge at the Plate’
Submitted by Jim Tapper, Sharks manager
This summer’s scheduled playoffs got rain the first week, which forced the teams to play a doubleheader. The following week the first game for the Sharks was against the Angels, with the final score 15 to 10 with Charles Mayfield pitching a complete game victory.
In the second half of the double-header the Sharks faced the Mariners in the championship game. The Mariners led 4-3 going into the sixth inning. The Sharks scored three in the sixth, two more in the seventh and two in the eighth to pull out a 10-7 victory to take home the hardware.
Pete Frolander went 3 for 4 with a double and three runs scored. Chris Bill went 4 for 4 (7 for 8) for the day. Joe Flores pitched a solid 7 1/3 innings with Bandon Bogges pitching the final 1 2/3 innings to pick up the save. Without everyone’s contribution, big or small, we wouldn’t of achieved this Sharks championship!
