SP-F 11s Make Cranford Playoffs
The Scotch Plains-Fanwood 11-yearold Raiders earned a berth in the Cranford playoffs with a 4-1 record in their flight, beating Metuchen, Garwood, Roselle Park, and Kenilworth while losing only to flight winner Cranford. The Raiders were to face either South Brunswick, Westfield or Plainfield in the first round of the double-elimination playoffs.
Leading the offense in the five games were Kyle Gates who batted .625 with three doubles, Jeff Bell with a double and a triple and eight RBI, Clayton Balch with five runs scored and a .600 on-basepercentage, Sean Young with a double and a triple and five runs scored and Matt Scibek and Danny Birnbaum each with big home runs.
Scibek and Brian Halpin won two games apiece on the mound, with Scibek turning in two complete games. The Raider defense was excellent throughout, featuring sparkling infield play. Chris Hambleton provided yeoman service in the catchers position in spite of the heat. Chris Cooper played well at third, with Dominique Price, Alex Fourre and Chris Nilsen all contributing with both the bat and defensively in the outfield.
