Game #6

Date: September 9, 2010
Start: 9:15pm
End: 10:10pm
Where: Havins Field #2
Opponents: Gang Bangs One Out

We were the home team.

Outcome: WIN
Final score: 7-6

Notes: An incredibly tense back-and-forth game featuring excellent defense by both teams -- of the 12 half-innings played, 7 of them were scoreless, and another 2 featured only a single run! There were a few defensive highlights of the game:

...and those are just the highlights! There were plenty of other solid defensive plays which contributed to this victory. There was some late-game drama when the opponents scored 5 runs in the top of the 6th inning to take a 6-4 lead over the Weasels. The Weasels did not panic, however. Patrick led off the inning by using his excellent speed to reach base on an infield single. Amanda managed to get to a full count and then work a crucial walk, putting the tying runs on base. Neil laced a double into right-center field, scoring Patrick and advancing Amanda to third base. Becky hit a hard line drive, but unfortunately it was right at the shortstop -- one out, and the runners were unable to advance. Newton hit a hard ground ball to the first baseman. She boxed it around, and was unable to make a clean play on it. Amanda had already scored, and Neil was waved around third base. The first baseman finally got control of the ball and made a throw to the plate, but it was offline and Neil scored the go-ahead run. Newton took second base on the throw. At this point there was less than a minute left on the clock. Lindsay took a pitch, and then drove a fly ball over the left-center fielder's head. Time expired after she had rounded first and Newton rounded third. Because the Weasels already had the lead, the game ended at this point, giving Lindsay only a single on her hit (even though she surely would have had extra bases) and not allowing Newton to score a run (even though he crossed the plate before they got the ball in). All in all a very exciting way to end the season! Thanks to our fans for coming out to cheer, including Ted, Becky, Tim, and others I'm surely forgetting. Great thanks to David for keeping score!
