Champion – US Vinyl/Z-Wear/Meridian/Subway, Lafayette, Georgia
Runner Up – Kluever’s Snap-On/B&J Logging/Mizuno, Metamora, Illinois


Team Synergy and U.S. Vinyl advanced to Saturday’s winners’ bracket finals of the ASA Men’s Major Slow Pitch National Championship here at the Historic Sanford Memorial Stadium with a pair of wins Friday.

Team Synergy had to come-from-behind in both of its wins. It needed a dramatic two-run, two-out homer in the bottom of the seventh to edge Watanabe/New/K&G; of Cincinnati, OH in its opener, 13-11, then fell behind 14-2 against Benfield/Alesium before exploding for 14 runs on 15 hits in the fourth inning to take the lead and win 25-22.

Benfield/Alesium, which won its first game against defending champion Kluever’s Snap-On/B&J Logging, gave it a gallant effort in its loss to Team Synergy. It trailed by eight runs entering the seventh inning and scored five times to cut the game’s final margin to three.

Outfielder Ken Briggs’ three-run homer in the seventh reduced the game to its final margin and it was one of five homers he smashed in a perfect performance, driving in 12 runs. Benfield, which will play Saturday at 4 p.m., smashed nine homers, one more than Synergy. Catcher Brian Wooten paced the Synergy offense with eight runs batted in on a pair of three-run homers and a two-run single in four at-bats. Chad Durick went 4-for-5, driving in four runs on three singles and a two-run blast in the sixth inning.

While Synergy had to come-from-behind, U.S. Vinyl won both of its games in convincing fashion, run-ruling Westshore/T&R Stucco and Bell Corp/Doc’s in five innings each. In the two games. U.S. Vinyl smashed 18 homers and 42 hits. Catcher R. J. Howerton led the Vinyl offense in the second game hitting three homers in four at-bats to bring across six runs after driving in five runs in the first game.

Bell Corp/Doc’s, which will play the winner of the Watanabe-Kluever’s game at 2 p.m. Saturday, managed only six hits and failed to score in four of the five innings against U.S. Vinyl.

Other losers’ bracket games Saturday are at 10 a.m. (Armed Forces vs. Westshore/T&R Stucco), 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Each team has a 15 homer limit per game with 71 homers hit in the first six games. Vinyl and Benfield lead with 18 each followed by Synergy with 12.

Gulash was hitless in two previous at-bats with a walk prior to the seventh inning. Gulash’s homer was one of four hit by the winners.

Defending champ Kluever’s Snap-On/B&J Logging advanced to the championship game by eliminating Team Synergy of Orlando, FL Sunday morning in winning its fourth straight game after an opening game 16-9 loss to Benfield Alesium of Fairfax, VA. Kluever’s scored five runs to open the game but Synergy tied the game in the second inning on Dal Beggs’ two-run single up the middle, scoring Damon Marlette and Brian Wooten.

First baseman Bobby (Wally) Woldyk had only one hit in Sunday’s championship game of the ASA Men’s Major Slow Pitch National Championship at Historic Sanford Memorial Stadium. But it was the one U.S. Vinyl of Houston, TX needed for insurance to win its first ASA Major national title, beating defending champion Kluever’s Snap-On/BJ Logging of Metamora, Ill., 13-8, in eight innings. In four previous trips to the plate Woldyk, who was named tourney MVP, was hitless. Before entering the batter’s box in the eighth, he asked his teammates for some advice. “Guys, I am hitless. What should I do?” Woldyk said. They told him to do what he does best and “blow it out of here.” And he did, sending the ball over the left center field (370 feet plus) fence for a one-out grand slam to give his team a seven-run cushion entering the bottom of the eighth inning.

Before Woldyk unloaded for his sixth homer of the championship, three runs scored on RBI singles by Jeff McGavin, Chris Butler and Billy Barrett, giving Vinyl an 9-6 lead. In the bottom of the eighth, Kluever’s Snap-On, which had won four games in a row before losing for a second time, reduced the game to its final margin on Shaun Watson’s two-run homer with Wendell Rickard aboard. Rickard singled to open the inning against winning pitcher Billy Messina.

The next two batters, J.C. Phelps and Denny Crine, grounded out before Jeff Ott doubled to keep Kluever’s hopes alive of repeating as national champion. But Dean Schmidt flied out to left field to end the game, giving Vinyl its first ASA Major Slow Pitch Championship. Besides being the first ASA Major title for the team, it was the initial one for manager Bryant Grant.” We had 11 different guys all playing as one,” said Grant, who praised Vinyl sponsor Steve McCloud.” We certainly appreciated what he did for us this year. I just wish he could have been here to witness this.” Unfortunately, McCloud couldn’t attend because his daughter has some health problems and he needed to be with his family. The game was tied twice (five all and six all) before Vinyl broke the game open in the eighth in the tournament’s first extra inning game. After Vinyl scored a pair in the first on Andre Newhouse’s two-run homer, Kluever’s tallied five in the bottom of the first. Vinyl, however, tied the game at 5-all with three runs in the second inning on RBI singles by Butler and J.D. Genter and a sacrifice fly by Woldyk. But Vinyl broke the tie in the top of third on McGavin’s RBI single, scoring Newhouse who had singled to start the inning. Dean Schmidt of Kluever’s homered to lead off the bottom of the fourth to tie the game at 6-all. Vinyl didn’t score in the fourth and fifth innings. Kluever’s was blanked in the bottom of the fifth, sixth innings and seventh innings. Vinyl got a pinch runner to second base in the seventh inning, but he was picked off to end the inning. In the eighth, outfielder Newhouse doubled to left to start the inning. Catcher R.J. Howerton was intentionally walked and McGavin singled to right, scoring Newhouse. Butler singled to score Howerton before Scott Janak flew out to right field for the first out. Barrett’s RBI single brought home McGavin with the third run of the inning, setting the stage for Woldyk’s grand slam. Newhouse (3-for-4,single, double and homer, two RBI), and McGavin (3-for-4, two singles and a double) led the Vinyl offense. For Kluever’s, Troy Summerfield had a pair of singles and walked in his other at-bat. Watson also had a single to go along with his homer in the eighth inning and Rickard had two singles in four trips to the plate. Each team hit two homers in the championship game. Beside winning its first ASA national title, Vinyl received a $10,000 check from ASA President E.T. Colvin for first place. Second place was worth $6,000 to Kluever’s Snap-On/B&J; Loggging, which received the check also from President Colvin. Kenny Briggs of Benfield/Alesium/Reece/Easton led the tourney in homers (9) and will receive $500.00 from the ASA. Leading hitter was Alex Lavorico of Benfield/Alesium/Reece/Easton (.800).
