|The Reds responsed from their loss to Moorestown by soundly thumping the
Pennsboro Phillies 12-3. George Lovett continued his excellent season by going 5-6 with two
doubles and a triple. Mark Kraus returned to action and went 3-4 with a pair of doubles while Bob
McGeehan contributed four RBI's on the afternoon. Brad Zerbe picked up the win with five innings
of work (3 ER, 3 K, 0 BB). The win sets up a showdown with Margate next week, in a rematch of last
season's South Finals, followed by a season ending doubleheader versus Moorestown in two weeks.

|August 8, 2004
|The Reds used a four-run first inning, highlighted by Christian Banfer's
two-run triple, to defeat the first place Wolfpack 5-2 in the first game of a doubleheader.
George Lovett pitched a complete game to run his record to 6-0. He struck out six. In the nightcap,
the Reds appeared ready to take over sole possession of first place, taking a 7-2 lead after just
two innings. Banfer banged another two-run triple while Pete DiLorenzo (2-3, 3 RBI) and Lovett
(2-4, 3 runs) paced the offense. But Moorestown battled back to salvage a split and remain in
first place in USOTB Southwest. The final week of the regular season will have the Reds
making up their July 18 rain out versus UTEK. A win clinches at least fourth place overall in the
South and a first round bye.
