The Dr. Barbaro Podiatry Padres took on Dominick’s Deli Braves on a sun-drenched Sunday afternoon. Hunter Dunn, Jake Gruosso, and Julian Dewitte laced three straight singles to start the home first for the well-oiled Dr. Barbaro Podiatry Padre machine. Solid hits were contributed by Thomas Vieni, Trevor Boshnack, and Ben Harnick. Michael O’Grady clobbered the second Padre double of 2013 into left center. In the field Stephen Coffey, Chris Erxelben, and Stephen Lopez provided amazing glove work.
The Dr. Barbaro Podiatry Padres had a spirited rematch against the Virgilio Chiropractic Dodgers. Both teams were much improved from their initial matchup on opening day. The Padres were led by Jake Gruosso, Christian Thomas, Chris Erxleben, and Harekam Singh with three hits apiece. Hunter Dunn chipped in with 3 RBI. Anthony Strocchia and Ben Harnick showed great smarts on the base paths and Trevor Boshnack and Michael O’Grady made great stops on defense. It was “Stephen Night” at the ballpark, as the two Dr. Barbaro Podiatry Padre Stephens turned in bobblehead-day-worthy performances. On defense Stephen Coffey turned an unassisted double play and offensively Stephen Lopez crushed two doubles and drove in three runs.
Halfway through the season and the Cardinals are proving to be great ball players. Good teamwork and hustling on the field were displayed by Bella Morales, Sara Guira, Kaylin Beckmann, Noelani Maund, Prescilla Ferri and Alexa Stec with Lauren Zamora playing first base.
