Opponents: Crayon Eaters

We were the home team (meaning we batted second).

Outcome: WIN
Final score: 11-6

Note: Going into this game, both teams owned a 2-1 record in the league. The outcome was very important, and the game was played with much intensity. For most of the game, the teams were within 2 runs of each other. The Crayon Eaters started the game off by scoring 2 runs in the top of the first inning. The Weasels struck back, racking up 4 runs in the bottom of the first. For the next few innings, each team made small gains, with the Weasels always maintaining a small lead. Late in the game, the Crayon Eaters brought the score to 7-6 (Weasels' favor). In the bottom half of the inning, with just over 4 minutes remaining in the game, the Crayon Eaters pitching unraveled. After a couple of walks, a sacrifice fly by Neil, and a beautiful line drive by Christine, the time ran out. The Ice Weasels won the game, 11-6. The offense came through when it needed to, including an in-the-park homerun by Matt and 2 RBI double by Cory. Newton helped with his excellent baserunning. There were also some very nice defensive plays. With a runner on first, Pete caught a low-hit ball and threw it to Nell at first before the runner could get back, for the double play. Brandy also made a very nice inning-ending catch of a ball hit well in front of her at third base. With timely offense, fine defense, and much hustle, the entire team contributed to this important victory.
