Game #2

Date: 8/2/01
Start: 9:15pm
End: 10:10pm
Where: Krieg Field #5
Opponents: Sting

We were the visiting team (meaning we batted first).

Outcome: LOSS
Final score: 15-10

Note: This was the second game for the Ice Weasels at the low intermediate level, and it started off encouragingly. The Weasels scored runs steadily in the first few innings, while holding the opposition in check. Sting scored a few runs, but the Weasels maintained the lead. Sting narrowed the Weasels lead to 8-7, but the Weasels added a couple runs to make it 10-7. There were 10 minutes left and Sting was coming up to bat. Due to some timely hitting and defensive errors, Sting was able to score 8 runs before the inning (and the game) ended. The Weasels did not play their best game, offensively or defensively. Pete pitched well (as always), Newton was a solid presence in left field, Tammy recorded a number of key outs at second base, Neil played good defense at shortstop, and the team managed to put together some runs. The top of the batting order (Newton, Kari, Neil) did particularly well. This game was both positive and negative for the Weasels. On the negative side, of course, is the loss and sub-par playing. But on the positive side, despite the problems, the game was close -- another indication that Ice Weasels are not out of their league at the low intermediate level.
