Game #3

Date: December 16, 2004
Start: 8:45pm
End: 9:30pm
Where: Krieg Field #2
Opponents: Crown & Anchor

We were the home team.

Outcome: WIN
Final score: 17-12

Note: A rollercoaster of a game. After the first few innings, the Weasels were up 12-0. Crown & Anchor responded with a 12-run inning, to tie the game, with 3 minutes left on the clock. Jesse led off the inning and fouled out. Joanna struck out, leaving the Weasels with 2 outs, facing the possibility of playing defense for another half-inning, after giving up 12 runs the last time. However, Neil managed a single. Carrie walked. Mitch hit a fly ball up the left field line that barely stayed fair. Neil was able to score the go-ahead run from second base, but Carrie had to hold at second. Karin followed with a walk, to load the bases. With 2 outs and less than a minute on the clock, Phil launched a ball over the head of their left-center fielder, and made it around the bases for an inside-the-park, walk-off grand slam (as time had expired before the next batter could appear). The final score was 17-12. The game also featured an in-the-park homer by Neil. This was the 100th regular-season victory by the Ice Weasels, so it was fitting that it was won in such dramatic fashion. Way to go, Weasels! Thanks to Karin and Don for subbing.
