Buckhorn racked up eight runs in the first inning and held off a late Club Buck rally to earn an 18-14 Over 30 Modified Softball League win Tuesday night at Betts Park. Reggie Rogers doubled, tripled, and homered for the Buckhorn offense, while Jim Greville and Josh King combined pitching efforts in the win.
Jim Newton allowed just one run in Accent Staffing's 12-1 win over Klenowski Law, and he fell a triple shy of the cycle in a 3-for-3 day at the plate. Scott Hall, Jay Kuzminski, and Quinton Miller each had two hits in the win.
Bob Mika drove in a pair of runs in the top of the seventh inning to lift Freddie's Bar and Grill to a 7-6 win over S&K Scope Mounts. Mika had three hits, while Tim Day and Bob Boyer added two hits each for Freddie's.

Bullpen’s Dave Persing records an out at second base and tries to turn the double play during Tuesday’s Over 30 Modified Softball League game against Mangione Beverage at Betts Park.
Mangione Beverage pounded out 19 hits in a 12-2 win over the Bullpen. Tim Munksgard went 4-for-4 with two doubles and a triple, Brad Johnson was 4-for-4 with three doubles, and Kenny Frank went 3-for-4 for Mangione.
A Division league-leaders CMFS/Bucket rolled to a five-inning 22-7 win over Crescent Beer. Dave Klemens had three doubles, Adam Eggleston had two doubles and a single, and Nick Martinelli had a double and two singles for The Bucket.
B Division first-place finisher Kwik Fill used big innings to hold off American Legion, 12-10, with special thanks to Troy Weissinger's monster night. Weissinger smacked two home runs, and was then intentionally walked the rest of the night. Rick Wagner was 2-for-3 in the win, and was winning pitcher.
The box scores were inadvertently left out of Wednesday's Times Observer, and will be published in Thursday's WTO.
