Game #5

Date: August 31, 2006
Start: 8:20pm
End: 9:15pm
Where: Havins Field #2
Opponents: Crestview Home Repair

We were the visiting team.

Outcome: WIN
Final score: 16-1

Note: The game did not begin well for the Weasels. Newton led off the game by lining out to the pitcher on the first pitch he saw. Azzy lined the first pitch she saw into shallow right-center field. However, the outfielder was playing very shallow and was able to play it on a short hop and throw her out at first base. Eric hit the first pitch he saw to deep right field, but the right fielder had him played perfectly and hauled it in for the last out. Three pitches, three outs. In the bottom of the inning, the leadoff hitter for Crestview hit an inside-the-park home run between right and right-center field. Despite this inauspicious beginning, however, the Weasels shut down Crestview the rest of the way. The Weasels were also shut out for 3 of the 5 innings, but scored 8 runs in the second inning and 8 runs in the fifth inning. The highlight of the Weasel offense was the only inside-the-park home run hit by the team -- a grand slam by Mike R in the 5th inning. A solid victory. Thanks a lot to Mike R for subbing.
