Coldwell Banker used a huge first inning to drop Quotations 19-7 on Sunday afternoon. Ryan Gauffreau made his pitching debut for Coldwell in the first.

Hoole grounded out to Gauffreau as well but picked up an RBI as Colin Heff came around to score. Colin Eckels singled and stole second, third, and home and it was 2-0 Quotes heading to the bottom half. But then the Realtors hung a crooked number on the board. Mike Phillips walked to start things off. Jack Gill singled to the right side. Sean Gorman then lined a single to left to score Phillips. Joe Arizin walked to load the bases. Then Matt Halpin (walk), Shawn Welsh (hit by pitch), Tristan McLean (walk), and Gauffreau (hit by pitch) all got free passes as four more runs crossed the plate. Theo Jauregui, an NL call-up, had an RBI single. Phillips drove in 2 with an RBI single. Gill drove in two more with another RBI single. Gorman doubled to drive in another run. Joe Arizin singled to drive in another. Halpin doubled to drive in yet another. And Anders Kristiansen hit a sacrifice grounder to first to score the inning’s final run. It was 13-2 Coldwell after one.

In the second, Shawn Welsh walked to the bump for the first time this season. He did not allow a hit but Quotes got 2 runs back in the inning. Gavin Martin and CJ Hasson both walked and stole three bases each. Kristiansen caught a pop-up at third, Phillips caught one at second, and Welsh recorded a K for the other out and it was 13-4 Coldwell heading to the bottom of the second. Big Blue added four more in the inning. Tristan McLean popped one up with the right side that was not corralled and he reached safely with a single. After the next two batters were put-out, CB made some 2-out noise. Phillips hit a hard liner to right to score McLean who had stolen second and third. Gill walked. Then Gorman tripled to drive in Phillips and Gill. Arizin walked. Halpin reached on an error and Gorman scored on the play. Coldwell took a 17-4 lead into the third.

Coldwell threw another first-time pitcher to the hill in the third in the person of Tristan McLean. Jonathan Hoole reached base on an error to start things off. He stole second, third, and home. Eckels walked. Jeffrey Cropper grounded out to Mike Phillips at shortstop as Eckels moved to second. Ryan Killeen notched an RBI single to drive in XL. Gavin Martin walked. Then Aiden Reh hit a grounder to third which scored Killeen. But Gill threw to Halpin at first for the second out and Halpin turned and fired to Kristiansen at home to nab Martin for the third out. It was 17-7 Coldwell heading to the bottom half. Big Blue added a couple more. After Shawn Welsh was thrown out at first on a great play by the Quotes’ third baseman, and Tristan McLean lined out to shortstop, CB was able to do some more 2-out damage. Gauffreau (walk) and Jauregui (hit by pitch) both scored. Phillips drove in Gauffreau with an RBI single. Gill walked. Then Gorman used his fourth hit of the day (single) to drive in his fifth run and it was 19-7 Coldwell after three.

In the fourth, Gorman did what Gorman usually does. After walking Hasson, he struck out the next two batters looking. Colin Heff grounded out to Phillips at shortstop for the final out as the 10-run rule was invoked and Coldwell Banker walked away with a 19-7 victory to improve to 11-3 on the season.
