Powered by two four-run innings featuring back-to-back homers by Gilchrist and Major, North Salem defeated the Mount Kisco Chiefs 10-6 Tuesday evening, July 19, in an 11U contest. The strong pitching of Schoenberg and Eberhardt held the Chiefs in check.

After Mt. Kisco scored four unearned runs in the top of the third to take a two-run lead, the Tigers erupted for four of their own in the bottom of the inning, highlighted by blasts over the left-field fence by Gilchrist and Major. When the Chiefs tied the game with two more in the next inning, North Salem answered with four more in their half, with Baer and Viebrock each collecting two RBI to complete the scoring.

Viebrock led the way with three RBI, Gilchrist and Baer had two apiece, and Major and Weigle each had one. Schoenberg pitched an effective first four innings, giving up no earned runs while fanning six. Eberhardt needed only 18 pitches to record the final six outs and seal the victory for the Tigers.

The Tigers enter the playoffs as the top seed and finished the regular season with a 13-2 record.

We have enough of those already.”

Cross My Legs and Hope to Die

One morning, I had a big cup of coffee as I usually do, and then I got in the car and drove 40 minutes to a clothing store I had been curious to check out. I don’t normally drive 40 minutes to go shopping, but since I am a stay-at-home mom and everyone knows we stay-at-home moms just spend our time shopping and eating bonbons, I figured, “What the hey.”
