Rockies Edge Giants in 'Walk-off' Fashion for 60+ Title in Sacramento

Sacramento Men’s Baseball League, 60+ Division 

Rockies 8, Giants 7


‘Burkitt Throws Complete Game for Victory’

(Pictures courtesy of Jane Burkitt) The Rockies scored four in the bottom of the first and one in the second.  The Giants scored one in the top of the third to make it 5-1.  Manager Tim Burkitt was on the mound for the Rockies and held the Giants without a hit until the fifth inning. 

The Giants scored another run in the top of the eighth to make it 5-2 but in the top of the ninth the wheels came off for the Rockies.  They gave up five runs in the frame to give the Giants a 7-5 lead, leading up to a do-or-die situation for the Rockies.  The Rockies started the bottom of the ninth quietly with a ground out to third.  Then Al Luger was able to single and Robert Stormont followed with a walk to get things ignited for the Rocks.  Tim Burkitt and Bruce Maiman both singled and then Roy VanKempen launched a double over the head of the center fielder to score the winning runs in walk-off fashion.

For the day, Billy Bowerman was 2 for 5 with a double, Al Luger went 3 for 5 including a double, Tim Burkitt chipped in a 2 for 5 day, Bruce Maiman was also 2 for 5 and walk-off hero Roy VanKempen was 3 for 5 with a double and three RBI, including the game winning hit

The Rockies winning pitcher was Tim Burkitt, who threw a complete game, surrendering eight hits, and notching two strikeouts while giving up one walk.
