Game #1

Date: February 23, 2006
Start: 8:20pm
End: 9:15pm
Where: Havins Field #3
Opponents: Hard Hitters

We were the home team.

Outcome: WIN
Final score: 16-3

Note: This was a dominant game by the Weasels, start to finish. Neil hit two inside-the-park home runs, Eric hit one, and Newton hit one or two, depending on your point of view. One of Newton's homers was undisputed. The other was a triple, but the throw to third base was bad and ended up in the visitor's dugout, resulting in Newton being awarded home base. In addition to the home runs, there were back-to-back triples hit by Azzy and Neil in the first inning. There were also some nice defensive plays. In the top of the first inning, the Hard Hitters had a runner on first base and two outs. Their batter hit a line drive into left-center field. Phil fielded it and threw it in, but the throw got past the cut-off and Eric caught it. Meanwhile, the runner from first was almost to third base. Eric didn't hesitate and gunned the ball to Angie at third base, who applied the tag just in time to the sliding runner for the third out of the inning. In the top of the final inning, Newton made a diving catch of a ball hit to the gap between him and Phil. He somersaulted after making the catch, but held on to the ball for the out. All in all, it was a very well-played game by the Weasels, both offensively and defensively. Thanks to Angie for subbing.
