Finally the Tuesday night season has begun. The long walk out to the fields is back, but no one minds as its time for another great season!
Week One started out a little rough for a few teams as a pair of forfeits gave both New Kicks on the Block and One Kick wonders free wins. However, they were able to use their time wisely as they got in some scrimmage games.
The first real game of the night was a nail-biter. Got the runs and Hotline Bling played a scoreless game for the three-and-a-half innings. That deadlock was broken by Hotline Bling as they were able to score three runs in the bottom of the 4th. Not to be outdone, Got The Runs followed that up with three runs of their own in the top of the 5th. Neither team was able to produce anymore offense as they had to settle for a tie.
New Kicks on the Block got a first game forfeit for the night, so they were well rested and prepared for their second game of the evening. Though their opponent forfeited the first match, they were able to get some valuable practice in before thy played Tallest Midgets. While each team was able to get a few base runners on in the early innings, the opposing defenses seemed to be too much as we headed into the 5th inning tied at 0. The Tallest Midgets were able to score in the bottom of the inning, but their lead was short lived as New Kids were able to score two runs in the 6th after loading the bases. Tallest Midgets would not be denied their first win of the season, however, as they answered right back with a four run outburst to win 5-2.
It feels great to be back again, and if this week was any indication of what we can expect this season, we know it will be a blast! Let’s look forward to all doing it over again next week!
