Note: A dominant game for the Weasels. Azzy and Phil each got in-the-park home runs, and Newton got two of them. The 23 run victory was a combination of good hitting and baserunning by the Weasels, and poor defense and pitching by the Hippos. Azzy warned all Weasels to wear green lest they be subjected to her fearsome pinch, and her warning was heeded, for every Weasel was wearing green. Matt (in Philadelphia) bemoaned his lost opportunity to receive a pinch from Azzy -- hopefully this will give him incentive to move back to town. The only unfortunate part of the game was that Phil hurt himself fielding a ball in the outfield, and had to leave the game. Thanks to Nicki for subbing, and thanks to Rob for subbing for Phil after he got hurt.

* - Phil started the game in LCF, and Mitch started the game at C. About two thirds of the way through the game, Phil hurt himself fielding a ball in the outfield. He stuck it out for a while, but during the top half of the next inning he left the game. Rob took his position in the lineup, and played C. Mitch moved to LCF. That was the configuration for the rest of the game.
