Closson routs Lantzville Pub, teams meet again Thursday

The Gord Closson Forest Products Fastball Team got their ongoing home-andhome series against the Lantzville Pub off to an excellent start last Thursday with a 12-2 victory in Nanaimo.

Pitcher Craig Snyder gave up just three hits over the five-inning game, and wasn’t charged for either run as the men who scored both got to first base on dropped third strikes.

"The team gave up two runs, but Craig didn’t," manager Joe DiLalla said.

Kevin Hooper launched the lone home run of the game, a two-run blast in the second inning, part of a 3-for-4 outing in which Hooper compiled two runs and four RBIs. Snyder also had a solid outing at the plate, going 3-for-5 with two runs and one RBI.

Dave Devana was 2-for-5 with two runs and one RBI, Gord Alberg was 2-for-4 with two runs and two RBIs, Mitch Devana was 2-for-4 with a run and four RBIs, Dom Mansueti was 1-for-2 with three runs and two RBIs, and Mike Sexton was 1-for-4 with one run and one RBI. "It was a productive night for the offensive side," DiLalla said.

Closson Forest Products and Lantzville will play the other half of the home-andhome this Thursday at 7 p.m. at Waldon Park in Glenora.
