The much delayed season of kickball has finally come to an end and, what an end it was. Tallest Midgets and Got the Runs would meet in the finals, but it was a tough road for each team to get there.
For Got the Runs, the night started out with a close game against TQL that would go into extra innings. Neither team was able to put up much when it came to the offensive side of the ball, but their defense more than made up for it. Tied at three runs a piece, the teams went to extra innings and one pitch rules. After shutting out TQL again, the Runs were able to find the run they needed to advance.
In the next round, they were able to avenge their narrow Week Six loss to One Kick Wonders. The Runs were able to jump out to a big lead early and were able to hold off a valiant comeback attempt by the Wonders to win 14-6, and find their way into the finals.
They would meet the Tallest Midgets in the finals. But first the Midgets had some work to do to get around Hotline Bling. Bling had won the previous game against New Kicks on the Block, and were in the right mindset to steal the semifinals. However, while they were able to get runners on base, they couldn’t turn them into many runs as they fell to the Midgets 7-3.
The Final was a classic kickball match-up between two unbelievable teams. Each team was able to score in the opening innings. However, the game drew into a stalemate as the teams remained tied at four for several innings. The Runs broke the deadlock in the fifth only to see themselves fall instantly behind in the bottom of the inning. Got the Runs was able to tie it again in the sixth, but the Tallest Midgets again found the offense when they needed. They answered back with three more of their own and with time running out, it was all they would need to win the finals 9-6. Congratulations Tallest Midgets!
A big thank you to all of our great teams and spectators this season, everyone truly made it an awesome and memorable season! We look forward to doing it all again soon!
