Game #3

Date: 8/9/01
Start: 6:30pm
End: 7:25pm
Where: Krieg Field #1
Opponents: Felix & The Cats

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

Outcome: LOSS
Final score: 17-15

Note: The Ice Weasels had beaten Felix & The Cats twice before (Winter 2000-2001), so this victory was within reach. The game was close the entire time, with both team scoring about the same number of runs during each inning. Both teams had consistent offense, partly due to defensive blunders by each team. However, Felix managed to pull ahead late in the game. Going into the bottom half of the 5th inning, Felix was winning by 6 points (17-11). The Weasels began their rally, and got the tying run to second base before Nathan lined out to the shortstop, to end the game. Nathan's hit was a rocket, but unfortunately the shortstop was in exactly the right place. Had it gotten through, the game would have easily been tied. Once again, the Weasels lost a close game at the low intermediate level. Despite the 0-3 record so far this season, the Ice Weasels are not outmatched. Thanks a lot to Lupe for subbing for us, and to Pete for pitching for us.
