Nikolas Rodriguez and George Papazahariou received game balls for Pee Wee Folks for their work at the plate and in the field.

Turano Contracting vs. Lee Miles Hollis. In the first meeting between the teams Sunday, defense was the name of the game. In the second inning, second baseman Nicholas Sanso and third baseman Max Mastrototaro each handled tough hops to force runners and end a threat by Lee Miles.

In the third inning, second baseman Matthew Curcio did the same with a nice backhander on a short hop to get a force at second. The play of the inning was made by first baseman Tyler Hartman when he went to his right to snare a rocket and get an unassisted put out at first.

On the very next pitch he made an almost identical play and recorded another unassisted put out for the third out of the inning. In the final inning, third baseman Theo Pigis made the play of the game for Turano Contracting by ranging back and making a spectacular over the shoulder catch and doubling up the runner at first to end the inning and keep Turano in the game.

In the bottom of the fifth, Chandler Lee walked and eventually scored the winning run as his brother, Jeffery Lee, stroked a RBI single that started a five-run rally for FY Lifestyle. Thomas Cercena came on in relief and preserved the win. Both teams deserve a round of applause for playing an exciting game, not giving up when their team was down and continuing to focus on the fundamentals they learned in practice.
