Game #7

Date: April 10, 2003
Start: 6:30pm
End: 7:25pm
Where: Krieg Field #6
Opponents: Hidden Talent

We were the visiting team.

Outcome: WIN
Final score: 15-8*

* - The actual score at the game was 16-8, but it was reported incorrectly to the league office. There's really no way to get it corrected, so the official score is going to be 15-8 as far as the league is concerned.

Note: The game looked to be very low scoring for the first couple of innings -- going into the top of the third inning, the Weasels trailed Hidden Talent 2-1. In the top of the third, the Weasels took advantage of some bad pitching and also exhibited some timely hitting, scoring 9 runs and staking themselves to a 10-2 lead. For the remainder of the game Hidden Talent tried to play catchup, but the Weasels also added some runs, and ultimately the opponents were unable to close the gap. Eric pitched an excellent game and hit a triple. Neil hit the only in-the-park homerun for the Weasels, hitting the ball to the fence in right field. Carrie (who replaced Nancy in LCF after she left the game with a pulled muscle) was on fire defensively in the outfield, making some nice catches of non-routine hits. John played third base like a man on a mission, and other than one throw to get out a phantom runner at second base, he performed excellently. His most impressive play took place early in the game, when Neil made a hurried throw to him at third base, and John managed to apply the tag on the sliding runner just in time. All in all it was an excellent team effort, and was a generally well-played game. Way to go Weasels! Thanks to Azzy, Nancy, Maria, and Dayna for subbing.

* - Nancy began the game in LCF, with Carrie DHing. Early in the game Nancy pulled muscles in both of her legs while running out a hit, so she left the game. Carrie moved from DH to LCF, and the Weasels took an automatic out in the 4th position in the batting order for the remainder of the game (it happened twice).
