Opponents: Capitol Punishment

We were the home team (meaning we batted second).

Outcome: WIN
Final score: 11-10

Note: The Weasels went into this game happy to be playing softball after a break of a few weeks. Newton was back on the team after taking the previous season off, and Eric was playing his first game as an Ice Weasel. The good feeling carried over into the game, as the Weasels built up a 10-3 lead by the end of the 3rd inning. However, Capitol Punishment had not given up the fight. They scored 7 runs in the top of the 4th inning to tie the game, with very little time left on the clock. The Weasels stopped the bleeding after that, shutting the opposition down 1-2-3 in both the 5th and 6th innings. However, the Weasels were likewise unable to score runs. Time had already expired by the bottom of the 6th inning, when Christine led off with a single up the middle. Mitch hit a ground ball fielder's choice, with Christine out at second base. Carrie hit a ground ball that advanced Mitch to second base, but Carrie was out at first base for the second out of the inning. Neil stepped to the plate and dropped a hit into shallow right center field. Mitch was waved home by Newton (the third base coach), and scored the winning run as the weak-armed outfielder was not able to get the ball in fast enough. The defensive star of the game was Jerry, who caught numerous pop-ups, as well as making a spectacular play at the plate. A ball had been hit through to the outfield, and Neil took the cut-off throw. He saw one of the runners heading for home, and he threw the ball to Jerry. Just as the caught it and tagged the runner, he steamrolled into her and sent her sprawling. Despite being smashed by this big guy, she held on to the ball for the out and stayed in the game. The final score of the game was Ice Weasels 11, Capitol Punishment 10. Thanks to Jerry and Pam B for subbing, thanks to Rob for keeping score, and thanks to Nat and Sara for cheering us on.
