Game #5

Date: January 3, 2008
Start: 6:30pm
End: 7:15pm
Where: Butler Field #2
Opponents: Crown & Anchor

We were the visiting team.

Outcome: LOSS
Final score: 17-15

Note: At game time, Crown & Anchor only had 8 players, and the Weasels only had 9 players (Ariel did not show up). Although the Weasels could have made their opponents forfeit, they instead agreed to allow them to start the game with 8 players. Within the first couple of innings the opponents got the 2 players they needed. In the 3rd inning the Weasels were able to pick up a sub, bringing them up to 10 players. The Weasels ended up taking one automatic out as a result of being short-handed. Matt was a slugging machine this game; in the 2nd inning he hit a 2-run home run, in the 4th inning he hit a 2-run home run, and in the 5th inning he hit a grand slam -- all of them out of the park. Special thanks to Marilee for subbing.
