Honours even as Twojans split opening day battle with Manchester Torrent.

Prior to the games starting both teams joined in a minutes silence to remember BBF Hall of Famers, Norman Wells and Ted Gerard-Thesingh.

Game 1 (Twojans 7 – Torrent 31)

Twojans wallow in the Mud, while the Torrent adapt

As you may have seen from the live stream, game one got off to a rough start for the Twojans. The newly placed dirt on the field was still muddy from rain earlier in the week, especially on the mound and behind home plate and starting pitcher Jeff Ocenasek had troubles adjusting to the soft landing spot for his front foot, causing him slip,slide and ultimately walk quite a few batters. The fielders also had troubling adjusting to the conditions as some errors prolonged the inning even further. As a result the Torrent plated 8 runs in the first inning to put the Twojans under a heap of pressure.

To the credit of the Torrent, they seemed unaffected by the conditions and were able to shut down Twojan bats in the bottom half of the inning.

Troubles continued in the second inning, but with a little less damage as Torrent were able to add another 5 runs, with the Twojans once again unable to reply in the bottom half of the inning.

In the third inning, Ocenasek was able to adjust and began to find his footing, this meant he was able to limit the Torrent to 3 runs at the top of the inning. In the bottom half of the inning the Twojan bats finally woke up with Tom Wrightson, Liam Harris, Chris Pittard, and Tommy Orton all driving in runs. Was an unlikely comeback on the cards?

After pitching over 110 pitches, giving up 16 runs (9 earned), with 11 walks and 6 strikeouts, Ocenasek did not come out to pitch for the fourth, and was relieved by Scott Gray.

Unfortunately Gray also had troubles in what lead to an extremely long inning.  In 2/3rds of an inning Gray gave up 14 runs (earned), walking 9 and with one strikeout with 13 wild pitches. Tommy Orton then come on to relieve Gray, and after walking 3 batters and giving up another run he was able to finish off the inning - much to the relief of veteran catcher Dan Groves. In the bottom half of the inning the Twojans were able to plate a couple more runs thanks again to Tom Writghtson and Chris Pittard, but it was clearly not enough as Torrent ran out convincing winners.

Despite the loss, the Twojans manage to collect 9 hits with both Ed Wrightson and Tom Wrightson picking up multi-hit games, with Tom Wrightson adding a couple of stellar plays in Centre Field for good measure. 

Game 2 (Twojans 23 – Torrent 15)

In the second game the Twojans showed their mental toughness by completely forgetting the first game and playing to form.

With lefty Chris Pittard on the mound and with the mud drying up in the sun, hopes here high of a positive result. Out of the gate Pittard gave up 3 runs, but he helped himself by picking off a runner. In the bottom of the innings the Twojan bats were alive with multiple hits down the lineup, with rookies Brett Czokomodiak and Michael Hughes both getting singles and RBI’s in their debuts.

In the second inning Pittard settled down and started to dominate, shutting down the Torrent and adding yet another pick off for good measure. In the bottom of the inning the bats continued to thump, plating another 6 runs.  The third inning was a repeat of the second with another shut down inning by Pittard coupled with another 6 runs by the Twojans bats in the bottom of the inning. In the fourth inning Pittard continued to be on form, but the Torrent were able to plate 2 runs, only for the Twojans to continue their hitting storm by plating another 6 runs in the bottom of the inning. In the end Alirio Meledez Romero and Tom Wrightson each drove in 4 RBI’s, Scott Gray and Jeff Ocenasek drove in 3 RBI’s each, and Ed Wrightson going 3-3 with 2 walks and 2 RBI’s getting on base every at bat to lead the offensive storm.

In what should have been a big blowout, things changed a bit. In the fifth inning the Twojans decided that with a big lead they would not over work Pittard in his first start of the year, as he had thrown 90 pitches (with 6 walks, 3 strikeouts and 5 earned runs), so they gave the ball to Liam Harris. Harris struggled to find the strike zone and in 2/3rds of an inning he walked 10 and gave up 10 earned runs before the Twojans had to give the ball to game 1 starter Jeff Ocenasek to come in and face one batter to close out the inning and seal the Twojans victory.

All in all the Twojans looked to be back to their normal selves in the second game, showing that even after a difficult first game they are able to turn the page and move forward. 

Next week, the Twojans are on the road to face the Harrogate Tigers, but there is still baseball in Bootle as the Trojans host their local rivals, Halton Jaguars. First pitch is scheduled for 12pm and the weather is looking great, so why not come along and enjoy the show!
