Game #5

Date: March 30, 2006
Start: 8:20pm
End: 9:15pm
Where: Havins Field #3
Opponents: Hard Hitters

We were the visiting team.

Outcome: WIN
Final score: 16-5

Note: An impressive win by the Weasels, including an inside-the-park home run by Dan and an inside-the-park grand slam by Neil. There was some impressive defense as well, including three double plays. The first was a hit to Eric, who tossed the ball to Angie at third for the first out, who whipped the ball to Julienne at first. The other two double plays started differently (one was fielded by Eric and the other by Neil) but ended the same -- with a throw to Maki at second for the first out, and a throw to Julienne at first for the second out. Great job, Weasels! Thanks a lot to Dan and Angie for subbing. Special thanks to Christine for subbing on extremely short notice. And special thanks also to Jaime, Mike, and Carmen for filling in for tardy Weasels.

* - At the start of the game, Julienne, Angie, and Neil had not yet arrived. Three players from the previous game (Jaime, Mike, and Carmen) generously agreed to sub until they arrived. The three subs only played for the top of the first inning, getting one plate appearance each. Thus, the three subs did not actually play any defensive positions. However, if the three tardy Weasels had not arrived by the bottom of the first, the plan was for Jaime to play SS, Mike to play 1B, and Carmen to play 3B. That did not come to pass. Defensively, Julienne played the entire game at 1B, Neil played the entire game at SS, and Angie played the entire game at 3B.

** - Carrie and Christine each played half of the game at RF and C.
