Honkers Drop Game Against Merchants 6-4: Brock Bueno Continues to Rake

The game at Everett Memorial Stadium was a close one against the first place Everett Merchants, whom the Honkers were looking to inch a game closer in the standings with a win. The Merchants ended up breaking a tie game up late to give them yet another win.

The game got its scoring started in the top of the second inning, where Paul Brynairski drove in Kendall Yackley with an RBI single, and then was followed Braydon Torre-Moore doubling down the line to score both Josh Snider and Paul Bryniarski to put the Honkers on top 3-0 early. But the Merchants don’t go down easy, and responded fairly quickly with runs of their own in the bottom of the third, where they loaded the bases and got a bases clearing double. With another run in that inning the Merchants now had the lead at 4-3, and it stood this way until the sixth inning, where Chaz Lopez grounded into a fielders choice with the bases loaded to tie the Honkers with the Merchants at four. The Merchants then put up three hits, and two runs on some clutch doubles to put them up 6-4 late in the eight inning. The Honkers reliever Evan Mckay was effective all night and was able to limit the damage with runners on base all game, but couldn’t escape that jam. The game then saw one more ups for the Honkers, but they went down in order to end the game.

The Honkers couldn’t get this one against the Merchants, but Brock Bueno still turned in an outstanding performance. Brock has continued to show why he is one of the best pure hitter on the team, as he once again went 2-3 out of the leadoff spot. He also walked twice, so was on base for a total of four times, making him a threat for the Merchants the entire game. Bueno continues to be the ideal leadoff man for head coach Martin Lawrence, as he knows that he can count on Brock out of that spot to always get on base.

The Honkers get day off before a doubleheader again the Redmond Dudes.
