End: 7:25pm
Where: Havins Field #2
Opponents: The Stingers

We were the home team.

Outcome: LOSS
Final score: 24-9

Note: A game in which the Weasels did almost nothing right, both offensively and defensively. There were four highlights, however. First, Nathan came out to play, nearly three years after his last Weasel appearance. And he was responsible for the second highlight of the game, an inside-the-park home run. The third highlight was an attempted defensive play. The Weasels were playing in a shift for one of the batters, which had Neil positioned behind second base, and Azzy playing deep behind first base. A ground ball was hit to Neil, who timed his throw perfectly to lead Azzy to the bag. Unfortunately the throw was just slightly off, and the umpire ruled that Azzy's foot was pulled off the bag just before the out was recorded. Despite the lack of an out, it was a beautiful play. The final highlight was also on defense. A ground ball was hit to Cory at third base. He threw to Maki at second base to record a force-out there, and she whipped the ball to Julienne at first to complete the double play. Sadly, these four highlights were overshadowed by an underwhelming Weasels performance, as the final score reflects. Thanks to Justin, Cory, and Nathan for subbing.
