Round Two of the season is here! Teams got to square off with their opponent from Week One and had the chance to change the fortunes from their first encounters.
Over on Court One, we had Oracle take on Kickin Ain’t Easy. Oracle came in looking to rebound after suffering their first loss against Kickin Ain’t Easy. They got off to a hot start, bringing in two runs in the first two innings while holding KAE to one. They would add on two more in their final at-bat (kick?) and enter the bottom half of the last inning with a three-run advantage. Kickin Ain’t Easy were able to bring in three runs to tie it up in their final at bat! However, they were unable to find that winning run and this game would end in a tie by a score of 4 to 4.
