Another week is in the books at Skipper, and teams are starting to gear up for their playoff pushes. A few teams however were forced to forfeit and threw the top of the standings in massive confusion. Two undefeated teams could not field a team and that may end up costing them in the end.
Bomb Squad was able to greatly improve their chances at a playoff spot when they played Off In The Woods. They pounced on them early and often but more importantly they managed to play fantastic defense. While runs are always the key to winning a game, Bomb Squad was able to pitch a shut out. You can’t lose if the other team can not score. An 11-0 victory saw them even their record at 2-2 and gives them a chance in the final 2 weeks.
After a trying season so far Orange Crush was able to pick up a glimmer of hope against Tits and Sticks. Orange Crush was able to jump out to an early lead thanks to a 5 run second inning. However after that their batters couldn’t find the open spots and they were left to depend on their defense. It held up for 2 innings before Tits and Sticks started to piece some hits together. After a 3 run inning they piled on with 2 additional in the final inning. However that would only be enough for the teams to tie 5-5, a first point for Orange Crush this season.
