Opponents: Hardhitters

We were the home team.

Outcome: WIN
Final score: 10-7

Note: This game featured two successful run-down plays performed by the Ice Weasels, perhaps a first in team history. For the first play, there were runners on first and third, and the batter hit a ground ball to the left side of the infield. Nicole fielded it, and when the runner on third broke for home, she threw the ball to Mitch at catcher. He ran the runner back toward third and then threw the ball to Phillip at third base, who applied the tag before the runner could get back in. On the second play, the bases were empty and the batter hit a ball deep to the outfield. He was approaching third as the throw was coming back in, and he chose to try and score. The ball was thrown to Carrie at catcher, who ran the runner back toward third and then threw the ball to Matt at third. Matt ran the runner back toward home. The runner slipped trying to change direction, and was tagged out by Matt. Thanks to Nicole and Kim for subbing. Special thanks to Jason and Burk for subbing on very short notice when Neil and Jim did not arrive before the game began.
