Center For Discovery earns a win

By Lori Brown
LIBERTY — July 20, 2010 — The Center for Discovery Dodgers took on the Holiday Mountain Bears on Friday night in a Liberty Slo-Pitch Softball League “B” Division game at Liberty Elementary School.
The Holiday Mountain Bears play hard every game as they try to clench their first victory of the season. But they couldn’t defeat the Center for Discovery Dodgers, who recorded a 13-4 win.
In the bottom of the first, Donny Santiago hit a solo home run for Center For Discovery (9-5). Luis Pagan scored on Kevin Drown’s base hit and Deon Mendez doubled to bring home Chris Constant and Drown, which gave Center for Discovery a 4-0 lead.
Holiday Mountain’s Andrew Dworetsky hit a double to start off the top of the third and scored on a single by Anthony Dworetsky.
Holiday Mountain (0-14) came back to tie the game at 4-4 in the top of the fourth. Jerry Novobilski had a leadoff double and scored when Pete Dworetsky hit an inside-the-park home run. Joe Wilcox doubled and scored the tying run when Justin Wilcox slammed a double to right field.
Center for Discovery regained the lead with a seven-run fifth inning. The key hit was a single by Tom Drown that allowed Josh Mattingly and Sean Drown to score.
In the bottom of the sixth, Luis Pagan hit a two-run homer to give Center For Discovery a 13-4 advantage.
“I believe everybody has a big [hitting] inning but us,” Holiday Mountain Player/Coach Justin Wilcox said. “We are coming together defensively and the guys are having fun. I appreciate every guy that keeps showing up and playing.”
Center for Discovery Player/Coach Donny Santiago said, “We scored some in the first [inning] then we didn’t hit until a couple of innings at the end.
“Luis Pagan played a good game at third [base],” Santiago added. “And Tom Drown pitched well tonight.”
