Lumbermen sweep Lafayette Couriers

"After a rough start to the season, the Batesville Lumbermen got back on track with a double-header sweep of the Lafayette Couriers," said teammate Tim Fullenkamp. The two teams met June 22 at Craig Park, Greenwood.

The first game saw the pitching debut of Matthew "Pudge" Fullenkamp. Pudge pitched four shutout innings in the game and Scott "Shag" Weberding held the Couriers to only one ace (run). The Lumbermen, a vintage baseball team, jumped out to a 9-0 lead and went on to an 11-1 win.

"The second match was much of the same as the Lumbermen defense was very impressive," according to Tim Fullenkamp. Michael "Juice" Miller made an over-the-shoulder catch to stifle a Courier rally, Ashlee "Dottie" Masavage (the first female player for the Lumbermen) gunned down a runner at home with Mark "Spider" Stenger applying the tag.

A double play turned in by Pudge and Tim "Sparky" Fullenkamp also helped the Lumbermen to an 11-5 victory.

Other defensive gems were turned in by Chris "Quick Hands" Casablanca, Dan "Wheels" Schuman and Mark "Bubba Gimpy" Masavage.

Hitting totals for the two games: Casablanca went 6 for 7; Matthew "Pudge" Fullenkamp went 6 for 8; Schuman, Jacob "Shrugs" Koester and Miller each went 5 for 7; Paul "Zeus" Soos and Stenger each went 4 for 7; Mark Masavage and Weberding each went 3 for 7; Ashlee Masavage went 2 for 7; Tim "Sparky" Fullenkamp went 3 for 6; and Steve "Buzz" Shepherd went 3 for 3.

The Lumbermen are at home this Sunday, June 29, at Liberty Park for the first ever meeting with the Vevay White Stockings. The first pitch is at 1 p.m. "Hope to see you" at the free game, Fullenkamp said.
