Justin Cusimano really sizzled at the plate in today’s 17-0 win over (Jupiter) Boston Brawlers B. The (West Palm Beach) New York Minutemen B first baseman blistered Jupiter for 5 hits in 5 at-bats.
“Cusimano was too tough to get out today,” the Boston Brawlers B skipper said in the postgame interview. “No matter what we threw him, he hit it. And he hit some good pitches, too.”
Justin Cusimano hit a two-run home run off Ron Bayer in the 1st, singled in the 4th, hit a GRAND SLAM off Bayer again in the 4th, hit an RBI single in the 6th, hit an RBI single in the 7th and walked in the 9th.
