Burger King scored two in the third on singles by Julian Santos, Paul Ferguson, and Jason Pistorino.

In both games, Orlando Casserino has scored the winning run, but it seems to run in the family. His dad pitched in the 1965 title game for the victorious VFW. In 1970, his Uncle Larry was the winning pitcher for VFW in the City Championship Game.
Another great year for the 75ers from Middletown American Legion !
