Station Casinos Runs the Table at Bud B

LAS VEGAS — Station Casinos/Mizuno (Las Vegas) used a torrid offensive weekend to roll through the 20-team USSSA Far West Budweiser B NIT with an undefeated 5-0 record March 31-April 1. With the win, Station Casinos earned its berth to the USSSA Mens B World Tournament in Blaine, Mich. in September.

Led by MVP Robert Martinez, Station Casinos/Mizuno averaged 34 runs a game and posted a collective team on-base percentage of .704 for the tournament. Martinez batted .962 for the weekend with four home runs and 27 RBI — and pitched the final five innings of the championship game against Ill Street/DeMarini (Arizona) — to earn his well-deserved MVP award.

Station Casinos’ toughest game of the weekend came straight out of the blocks against Plumbers and Pipefitters of Michigan in their first game of the tournament. In a game that featured six lead changes in the first four innings, Station Casinos finally pulled away with a 10-run fifth inning and rode that rally out to a 33-27 victory.

“We know the Michigan teams are always tough,” said Station Casinos manager Don Goldstein. “Larry (Quaney, co-manager) and I knew going in this wasn’t an easy draw. The lead changed every half inning until we turned a big double play in the bottom half of the fourth inning to shut them out and change the momentum of the game. We used that to get ourselves some breathing room in the next inning and took control of the game from there. But that one required maximum effort.”

The Mizuno team followed that up with a five inning, 37-5 demolition of Kopp Funds (Minnesota) and a six-inning, 41-23 run-rule win over Brown & Brown (Arizona) in subsequent games on Saturday.

“We had the Minnesota team overmatched right from the get-go,” said Goldstein. “Brown & Brown made us battle for what we got and that game was a lot closer than the final score indicates. We pulled away in the final two innings, but that game was a war for the first four innings. We ran late and didn’t get out of the park until 11 p.m., and with the daylight savings time change Saturday night it was really midnight to us. I was a bit concerned with how much energy we had spent on Saturday to get through those three games and with the guys getting enough rest for Sunday. But it worked out OK.”

In the other half of the winner’s bracket, Ill Street/DeMarini continued their impressive early season run by defeating two local Las Vegas teams — Mash, 29-7 and Big Daddy’s, 26-24. Ill St. advanced to Sunday’s undefeated game against Station Casinos by closing Saturday out with two run-rule wins over Team Alpha (Oregon), 28-12, and Team Reflex (Colorado), 32-17.

“I thought to myself, ‘Oh boy, here we go again,’” said Goldstein. “This was the third time we played Ill Street in the undefeated and championship games in three outings so far this year. We got them twice at the Gold Glove in Phoenix in February, but they got us twice at the first NIT in Lancaster two weeks ago. So this was sort of like a rubber match between us.Our guys knew we couldn’t afford to let them get us twice in a row in so short a time span and responded with a strong effort.”

In the undefeated game, Station Casinos pitcher Jeff White controlled Ill St. from the mound for the whole game as Station built up a double-digit lead in the top of the third inning and held that margin for the remainder of the game, earning a 25-13 victory.

Ill St. regrouped to defeat Drai’s, another Vegas team, in the loser’s bracket final to force a rematch with Station Casinos in the championship round. Drai’s finished third with a 6-2 record, rebounding admirably from a first-round loss.

The championship game saw Ill St. run out to a 22-16 lead after three-and-a-half innings, but a 13-run outburst by Station Casinos in the bottom of the fourth turned all of that around and staked the champions out to a 29-22 lead that would never be relinquished. In yet another hard-fought battle between the two teams, Station Casinos won by a final of 34-27.

In addition to MVP Robert Martinez, Station Casinos/Mizuno All-Tournament awards included Ronnie Salcedo (.800 obp), Dan Arevalos (.742), Curtis Horger (.758), Bart Hakeman (.677), Chris McDaniels (.688), and Tony “Rocket” Garay (.633). Dan Schneider also chipped in with a .733 on base percentage and pitcher Jeff White with a .640 obp. White also provided a strong effort from the mound.

“The offensive numbers this past weekend were way above our normal output,” said Goldstein. “Sometimes you just have to take the good when it happens and not ask any questions about it.”

Station Casinos/Mizuno runs its record out to 20-4 for the season (dating back to the Toys for Tots tournament in Palm Springs last December) with two first places and two second places in four outings.

“I’m getting a little sick of seeing Ill St. so much,” joked Goldstein. “Seriously though, the games between us so far this year have been what softball is supposed to be all about. Good, hard, clean, back-and-forth battles between two class outfits in games that have been a joy to see — win or lose. Neither team asks for any quarter and neither team gives one. We all know that any time we take the field against each other it’s going to be a tough game.

There hasn’t been one incident or any malice between the two teams yet in six hard-fought games. T’s nice to see that kind of mutual respect, brotherhood, and sportsmanship both on and off the field and it says a lot about the people involved in both programs. I tip my cap to everyone involved. The game could use a lot more of the example set by this type of player. The players on both sides are a credit to the game.”

  • Game 1 – W.W. Gay/Aubrey’s (Gainesville, FL) scored eight runs in the sixth inning to evoke the 15-run mercy rule and defeat Mountain Top/Advanced (Texarkana, TX) in the opening game of the Men’s Class A division of the Hooters Championship Series. Sean Snow went 5-for-5 with five singles and scored four times to lead W.W. Gay at the plate. John Thomas and Billy Eurice each connected for two home runs while Chad Carver and Ken Carlton hit the other two for W.W. Gay. Advanced/Mountain Top first baseman Vince Bisbee went three-for-three and scored three runs to provide a spark in the offense. Paul Sheppard provided the power for Advanced/Mountain Top going 2-for-2 with two home runs. W.W. Gay, who lost its long-time manager N.C. Ryals just a week ago to a sudden heart attack, are playing this tournament in his memory. These two teams meet again tomorrow at 10 a.m. in game two of the Hooters Championship Series.
  • Game 2 – In a see-saw battle in Men’s Class A in the Hooters Championship Series it came down to who would get the last at-bat. W.W. Gay/Aubrey’s ( Gainesville , FL ) won the toss in game two and capitalized with a walk-off home run by Billy Eurice in the bottom of the seventh inning to defeat Mountain Top/Advanced ( Texarkana , TX ) 28-26. Eurice remained perfect at the plate for the tournament going 4-four-4 with two home runs and five RBI. So far in the tournament, Eurice is 7-for-7 with four home runs and 13 RBI. Other standout performances for W.W. Gay came from Mike Thomas (3-for-4, six RBI), Chad Carver (2-for-4, five RBI) and Jose Santiago (4-for-4, three RBI). Mountain Top/Advanced looked strong at the plate full-filling its home run limit of nine in the sixth inning. Despite not having the long ball to rely on, Advanced was able to score seven runs in the seventh to extend its lead to 26-23 but the lead would not hold. Paul Sheppard went 3-for-5 with a home run and five RBI to pace Advanced at the plate. John Glidewell had three home runs in the game while Wade Casey finished with two. W.W.

Gay/ Aubrey’s (Gainesville, FL). Rickie Robbins came through in the clutch going 5-for-5 with five runs scored, two home runs and five RBI. Matt Arlett had two home runs and six RBI, while Wade Casey went 2-for-3 with four RBI. Shawn Snow hit a grand slam in the fourth and went 3-for-5 in the game with six RBI to lead W.W. Gay offensively. Billy Eurice, one of the most explosive offensive players in the tournament, once again went 3-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI.
  • Game 4 – Mountain Top/Advanced (Texarkana, TX) came back from an 0-2 deficit to win game four in just five innings, 31-19, over W.W.

Advanced defeated W.W. Gay/Aubrey’s of Gainesville , FL 36-31 in the final game to claim the title. After exhausting its allotment of home runs for the game in the fifth inning, Advanced had to rely on timely base hits to take the lead in the seventh inning. It managed to score 12 runs in the seventh without a home run to its credit. W.W. Gay mounted a charge in the final frame, scoring four runs but was unable to keep the ball in the park and were called out for going over its home run limit. Vince Bisbee was a popular choice for MVP after going 3-for-7 with four runs scored in the final game. Teammate Richie Robbins went 5-for-7 with seven RBI in the championship game, while Rob Gundry and Shawn Robinson both accounted for two home runs and five RBI for the winning team. Brett McDaniel starred for W.W. Gay in the finale going 4-for-6 with two home runs and seven RBI. Billy Eurice also had a good night at the plate going 4-for-6 with a home run and four RBI.
