BROKER SOFTBALL WEEKLY ROUNDUP
Want to get a jump-start on upcoming deals? Meet the major Chicago players at one of our upcoming events!
|Player of the Week: UGL Services' Rob Tamillo accounted for about seven of the 21 outs in defense at short and was no slouch when it came to hitting, either.|
|Off the field: Rob's a tenant advisor for local and national companies, with the main focus on industrial, which he says is keeping him extremely busy.|
|Postgame Schmooze: As always, it was a packed night at Gamekeepers, where mass quantities were consumed. The Karaoke Korral, hosted by Bill Barry of Draper & Kramer, was jumping. A tip of the hat to sponsors ICG Contractors, Gibson Electric, and Desks Inc. Also, a reminder: July 23 will be the first annual DRESL Idol Karaoke competition.|
|FIELD 1: JLL ONE 11, JLL TWO 5
The first JLL-on-JLL game was in the balance until the end, but Team One was ultimately able to take advantage of a error by the young Team Two squad. Bill Rogers went 2-2 with four RBI and two runs scored, a walk and a SAC at the top of the order. Scotty Baum went 3-4 with two RBI and one run scored. Josh Vervack went 3-3 with two runs and an RBI.
|FIELD 2: GOLUB 9, CBRE 3
After both teams got first and second inning runs, it was a 4-3 Golub lead in the top of fourth, and they took it from there. The Golub substitute pitcher was serving grapefruits all night, but the CBRE hitters didn’t take advantage.
|FIELD 3: COLLIERS 16, J.F. McKINNEY 11
The Cocky Colliers Cowboys managed another victory, this time over last year’s regular season best-record team, to remain undefeated. But it was a close-fought game until the flood gates opened for Colliers in the bottom of the fifth.
|FIELD 4: TRANSWESTERN 16, BRADFORD ALLEN 3
Transwestern took a big step toward making the playoffs by taking care of bid'ness against the hapless BAs. TW’s Anthony Wentzell was the big hitter with a 4-5 night, including four dooblays.
|FIELD 5: INLAND 16, MID AMERICA 7
The retailers were handed a stunning defeat by Inland. It seems defense was the big component in the surprise, including an impressive outing on the hill from Jake Meilach and right fielder Jeff Anderson, who made some circus-like catches with 4.6 difficulty.
|FIELD 6: UGL SERVICES 17, TISHMAN SPEYER 8
After a poor start, the UGL bats came around, with the team plating three runs in the fourth, fifth, and sixth innings and four in the seventh to put the game out of reach, as TSP could only muster one run the rest of the game. Matt Kapusta, Greg Moy, Scott Rasley, and Player of the Week Rob Tamillo each had three hits.
|FIELD 7: CUSHMAN & WAKEFIELD 8, CTK PARTNERS 4|
CW bested CTK, but not before some anxious moments as the Kritters exploded for four early runs. The momentum changed when CW third baseman John Kinsella started a 5-3 double play from his knees, firing a strike to first after stepping on third.
