Greg Luzinski cracked 3 homeruns and had 6 RBI and Pedro Martinez whiffed 13
batters as the Parma Yetts destroyed the Boston Santana’s Knees by a score of
16 to 6 at Connie Mack Stdm
Luzinski enjoyed a great day at the plate. He lofted a three-run ‘big-fly’ in
the 4th inning, delivered a solo blast in the 6th inning and cleared the
fences for a two-run home run (his 49th of the season) in the 8th inning.
Parma lit up the scoreboard in the 4th inning when they had 8 runs on 7 hits
and the 6th inning which saw them plate 4 runs on 3 hits. Parma finished

mound. Kapalua rapped out 7 hits for the afternoon.
Dallas Braden(3-4) ended up with the loss. It took a while to pry Stauffer
way from his teammates as they all wanted to show their appreciation and joy.
Finally, however, The Big Kahuna got to offer his own congratulations with a
big bear hug and the comment, ‘That was one of the best pitched games I have
