Matt Enright Comes Thru In The Clutch, Powers A's To Come From Behind Victory
Jul 8, 2014, 11:47 pm

Move over Derek Jeter, there's a new clutch playoff performer, Matt Enright, put the A's on his back and powered the squad to a comeback victory.


The team from Rosalind travelled to Killam to take on the Braves in the 4 versus 5 match up in the first round of Battle River League playoffs.  Rosalind had beat Killam twice in league play, 13-1 at home at the beginging of the season, and 6-2 in Killam in a thrilling game late in the year.


Rosalind sent youngster, and resisdent Battle River Rail employee, Brayden Benson to the mound.  Benson was on the hill in the last game against Killam, shutting down the capable Killam bats.  However, the Killam bats were hotter than a pistol to start the game, stringing 6 straight baserunners in a row.  Reluctantly, the A's brought in Brett Yuha to try to shut the door, and get out the inning.  What can't The Terminator do!!  With the help of a bullet that Matt Enright threw from left field to gun down a runner at home, the A's held the Braves to only 4 runs in the bottom of the first.  From there Brett Yuha threw another strong 3 innings before injuring his shoulder while sliding back into first base.  On 7 days rest, the A's turned the ball over to Ryan Yuha to close out the game. 


Offensively, Rosalind was in for a battle up against the hard throwing righty, Barry Truss, from the Killam Braves.  After the A's had surrendered 4 runs in the bottom of the first, Rosalind was able to draw a few walks and string together a few hits to rally back with 4 runs of their own in the second.  The game had the makings of a football score after an inning and a half.  Going into the top of the seventh, after the Killam Braves had recently scored 3 runs to take a 7-4 lead, the A's rallied again with a few walks and soft singles. After a bases loaded walk to make it a 7-5 deficit for Rosalind, Matt Enright, armed with his new favorite bat, crushed a bases clearing double over the left fielders head to give the A's a 9-7 lead.


To recap, Matt Enright was the story, going 3 for 5 with a single, double and triple! Yes, the quadricep of Matt Enright held up to leg out a stand up triple.  Matt will be signing autographs before the game on Thursday in Rosalind as the A's host game 2 of the series at 7pm.

Errors Prove Costly as The A's Fall To Spring Lake in Regular Season Finale
Jul 6, 2014, 10:42 pm

The Spring Lake Lakers, sporting their brand new uniforms with white pants and black tops, travelled to Rosalind on a beautiful Sunday night to take on the Rosalind A's.  The game was a reschedule from the All Star game night, but proved to still have a lot on the line for both teams.  If Spring Lake won, they would capture the Battle River League pennant as the top team in the regular season.  The squad from Rosalind was trying to secure home field advantage in the first round of the playoffs versus the Killam Braves.


Ideally teams want to be going into playoffs on a high note; confident at the plate, pitching well, and playing tight defence.  Sounds great, doesn't it, however that wasn't the shape that Rosalind was putting themselves in in the season finale.


Rosalind sent youngster Matt Palmer to the mound in his third appearance of the season for the A's.  Errors took a beating on Palmer's pitching line, as possibly only 1 of his 6 runs was earned.  Matt Enright came into put a stop to the roll the Spring Lake hitters appeared to be on, finishing off the final 4 inningso off the game.


Rosalinds pop gun offence was at it again, never completely shut out, but never grabbing momentum and running with it.  Offensively, the A's were lead by Nic Ronsko and Ryan Yuha, both going 3 for 4 at the plate.


The A's begin the playoffs in the 4 versus 5 match up against the Killam Braves.  Rosalind is 2-0 versus the Braves this season.  Game one is scheduled for Tuesday night in Killam at 7pm, while the 2nd game is in Rosalind on Thursday.

With Two Games on The Line, A's Offence Struggles in Tie Game with Amisk
Jul 3, 2014, 12:45 am

With a make up game from a rainout earlier in the season, Amisk travelled to Rosalind to play the Athletics in a 2 games in one, in order to get all games completed before playoffs start on Tuesday.  It was the first game since all star Steve Enright had been put on the 15 day DL, so obviously the A's were missing some talent and offence.


The A's sent veteran Ryan Yuha to the hill to take on the Astros.  After having a few weeks off, Yuha was eager to get back in game action before playoffs.  Yuha pitched a complete game racking up 4 strikeouts with 5 hits, and 2 walks.  Defensively, the infield was on their toes, turning 3 double plays thanks to the ground balls that Yuha was inducing.


Offensively, however, the A's continued to struggle at the plate.  Even with the absence of Enright, Harbak and Burnstad, Rosalind had enough talent to put runs on the board, but the bats are starting to be squeezed a bit tighter as the slump continues.

The small offensively rally began as the Amisk pitcher took a no hitter into the top of the fifth; but A's veteran Nic Ronsko, fresh off what felt like a 3 week holiday, turned a routine single into an aggressive double.  This sparked the beleaguered Rosalind squad, as the Ronnie and the next two batters eventually scored to tie the game.


The Athletics have one more remaining rain out game to be played against Spring Lake.  At the time of writing, the game has be scheduled for Sunday night in Rosalind at 6pm.  The game has a lot on the line as Rosalind is batting for home field advantage in the first round, and Spring Lake has an opportunity to secure first place after the regular season's finale.
