After falling under .500 for the first time in 4 years, the Al Thomas Club has overcome a barrage of injuries to win 5 of its last 6 and creep back into the playoff hunt.

On Tuesday, July 18, the A's trounced Savin Hill 11-3 behind the 3-hit complete game pitching of John Kostas. Greg Lovely led the offense with a 4-4 night as the A's scored double-digit runs for the 4th consecutive game. Chris Malloy scored 4 runs and Chris Bucci added 2 hits in the 12-hit attack.

The team welcomed back Scott Jamieson, recently back from his honeymoon.

On Sunday, July 16, the A's thumped South Boston 12-2 and celebrated with a cookout at the Milton American Legion Post 114 following the game. Over 100 people attended the gathering, including many of Al Thomas' Kiwanis brothers.

Aidan Powers threw 6 solid innings to pick up his 5th win of the year and added 3 hits, while Greg Lovely, Chuck Killens and Jim Flavin each ripped 3 hits to pace the offense.
