Game #1

Date: October 3, 2002
Start: 9:15pm
End: 10:10pm
Where: Krieg Field #9
Opponents: Bat Now - Beer Later

We were the visiting team (meaning we batted first).

Outcome: LOSS
Final score: 16-15

Note: When the game was supposed to begin, the opposing team was short several players. The home plate umpire asked Mitch if he wanted to make the other team forfeit, or if he wanted to give them 5 minutes to look for players. Mitch agreed to let the other team look for players, and they eventually found enough subs to begin the game. The game itself was close for almost the entire time. The Weasels would score a few runs in the top half of the inning, only to give those runs right back in the bottom half (mainly due to errors and bad throws). There was some drama late in the game, however. In the top of the 6th inning, time had expired, and the opposing team was leading 15-11. Christine grounded out to start the inning. Mitch singled, and then Megan struck out. Two outs, four runs down, and the Weasels went to work. Newton singled, advancing Mitch to second. Brandy hit the ball to the third baseman, but he bobbled the ball and Mitch was able to slide in safely, just ahead of the play. The bases were loaded, and Neil singled, scoring Mitch and Newton. Trisha singled, re-loading the bases. Eric doubled, scoring Brandy and Neil, tying the game. Carrie got out to end the inning, but the game was tied, and went to the bottom of the 6th inning. Sadly, the Weasels defense floundered, and the opponents scored the winning run before the Weasels were able to record a single out. The only consolation is that a great deal of the opponents best players were subs, so the next time the Weasels face them, they may not be as good. Thanks to Rob for keeping score and Trisha and Sherrie for subbing after already having played in a previous game.
