Lots of runs — many of the long ball variety — told the story in week two of the Sunshine Coast Men's Fastball League.

Long balls and lots of runs were two of the stories in week two action of the Sunshine Coast Men’s Fastball League.

Lon’s Gun Show put on a show in a 19-13 back-and-forth battle with the Jays on Friday, June 20.

The Jays took advantage of some defensive miscues from the Gun Show and jumped out to an early lead. Bolstered by some new youth, the Gun Show fought back, with Nolan Lewarne leading the charge with a home run and a double. This inspired old-timer Lonnie Allen to contribute to the comeback, going four for five.

Also last Friday, the Brewers remained unbeaten with a 14-3 win over Big Deals.

The timeless Bill Stockwell led the way for the Brewers as he was a single away from hitting for the cycle and pitched an excellent game.

On Monday, the Jays pulled out a 23-22 slugfest over the Big Deals. Steve Partrige hit in the game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh to give the Jays the victory.

In the other Monday contest, Custom Carpet blasted Gilligans 20-7.

Custom’s bats came out on fire as Rob McFarland, James Kennedy and Aaron Hately had two home runs each. Brennan Mayers pitched a strong game for Custom.  Randy Younghusband tried to get the Gilligans offence going with a three-run shot, but they couldn’t get anything started.
