Mike Lowrey was the starting and winning pitcher in game one. Lowrey allowed two runs in the first inning, and then shut out the Chiefs in innings two through five. John Massa pitched the sixth inning and retired the side in order.
With the Wanderers down 2-0 in the second inning, George Zorrilla cracked a two-out, two-run triple to tie the score. The Wanderers took the lead in the third when Massa smacked a two-out triple that scored Nick Lamonica. Lowrey followed with a double to make it a 4-2 lead.
Nick Zavattieri led off the fourth with a long double, went to third on Joey Deppermans single and scored on Mike Dinotos ground out.
Massa put the game out of reach in the fifth with a two-run homer and catcher Brandon Rosenthal threw four base-runners out in the win.
In game two, the Wanderers scored eight times in the first inning and six in the second. Vincent Florido, Zorrilla, Depperman, Rosenthal and Zavattieri all hit doubles and had multiple RBIs, with Floridos and Zavattieris pitching limiting Brentwood to only four hits.
Web gems: Rightfielder Lamonica scooped up what looked like a line-drive single and threw a dart to first base to get the out. Shortstop Florido made a diving stop of a hard-hit ball up the middle and then scrambled to second base to get a force out. Johnny Liquori was great at second base.
Tough guy: Zorrilla stayed in the game despite being hit so hard you could see the imprint of the ball above his eye.
