Texaco Pirates Claim Bahamas Invitational Title on Man-O-War Cay

May 27, 2007

Man-O-War Cay in the Bahamas


THREE MORE HOMERS FOR RHYS CASLEY TO LEAD THE WAY
(Six in the tournament)


The host Texaco Pirates from Man-O-War Cay in the Bahamas claimed the
first ever Bahamas Invitational Tournament title, with 10-1 and 5-2
wins over the Presidente team from Miami Florida. For the third day in
a row, Rhys Casley came up big, hitting three more homers on the day,
to give him six on the tournament. For the second day in a row,
teammate Barry Kahler went back-to-back with Casley, following
Casley's homer with one of his own, turning a 1-1 tie in the sixth
into a four run outburst, and cruised to a 5-2 win. Doug Sleep was the
winning pitcher, going the distance for the win, surrendering only a
pair of solo home runs, one in the second and one in the 7th with two
outs.

In the first game of the best of three championship series on
Saturday, Texaco ran away with things, behind the stellar pitching of
Rob Scheller and hitting of Rhys Casley. Casley entered the day with
three home runs in the first two days, and has become the player that
all of the local fans want to see hit. He did not disappoint them
today, with two home runs in the first game, running his total to five
on the tournament. (Casley added one more on the day, in the second
championship, for six in the tournament.
