Defeat Gladstone Brewery Athletics to win fifth title in six years

Happy’s Source for Sports Indians went from cellar to stellar en route to winning the 2015 Komoux Masters Real Baseball League championship – their fifth league title in the past six years.

The finals were played Sunday, Aug. 30 at Jake Plante Field in Comox. The rain did its job and held off for a great afternoon of baseball as the regular season’s last place team (#8 seed) Happy’s defeated the (#6 seed) Gladstone Brewery Athletics 5-2.

In the first inning the Indians’ offence started out red hot – led with singles by Tim McDonald (1-2, 1B, 1BB), Mike Caton (2-2, 2 1B, 1BB)  and Mike McPhee (2-3, 2 1B, 2RBI). The Indians were already up 1-0 when Darrell Ostgard (1-3, 1HR, 3RBI) proceeded to clear the bases with a three-run homer.

The Athletics got a run back in the third inning that was started by a Chris Janzen (1-4, 1B) single and was scored by a Kim Hazzard (4-4, 3 2B, 1B, 1 RBI) double to make the score a 4 -1 game going into the fourth inning.

The Indians tacked on one more run by a Mike McPhee RBI single to give them a 5-1 lead. In the bottom of the sixth inning, the A’s Kim Hazzard hit a two-out double and was later cashed in by a Jaimie Edwards’ (1-3, 1B, 1 RBI) single to bring the A’s within three runs.

The story of the finals came down to the veteran Indians’ pitching staff: Andy Marinus (5IP, 1ER, 5K, 0BB), Cory Marshall (2IP, 1ER) and Mike Caton (2IP, 0ER, 0BB, 1K) were able to get the outs they needed when it mattered the most.

The Indians and Athletics both thank their team sponsors, Happy’s Source for Sports and the Gladstone Brewery, for their support. Both teams would also like to say a final thank you to Jake Plante and Dale Greene for all their years of commitment to the league and welcome Tim Parsons as league president.
