Flyers would find the going tough as their highly explosive and much lauded offense could not manage a single homer in the game! Jorgito Castellanos [3 for 4 – 2rbi], Manuel Flores [2 for 4 – 2d, 3rbi] and Josh Bang [3 for 5] were the standouts for Flyers.

Team Smokey dropped to second place with a record of 4 – 2 after suffering their second consecutive defeat to The Kings. Neither team played much long ball as The Kings’ Les Dziwenka homered in the bottom of the 2nd inning, a solo shot that proved to be the only homer in the game.

The Kings led 2 – 1 at the end of the 1st inning, 6 – 4 after the 2nd and Team Smokey managed to tie the score at 6 – 6 in the 3rd inning. However, The Kings played excellent defense in the 4th, 5th and 6th innings to prevent Team Smokey scoring any runs. Meanwhile, The Kings added 2 runs in the 4th inning on a 2-run single off the bat of Rebecca Schoeler and four runs in the bottom of the 6th inning including a 2-run double by Scott Coppinger to increase their lead to 12 – 6.

Rebecca Schoeler [3 for 4 – 1d, 4rbi], Tory Richard [4 for 4 – 2d, 2rbi] and Scott Coppinger [2 for 4 – 1d, 2rbi] accounted for the majority of the run scoring opportunities for The Kings. Team Smokey was led by Douglas [3 for 4 – 1d, 2rbi] and Jason Ming [2 for 4 – 2rbi] and Sarah Robinson [4 for 4 – 1rbi].

In D Division action, Killawhat put an old-fashioned beat-down on Five O’s as they totally outclassed them 22 – 2 with the game being called in the 5th inning by way of the 15-Run Mercy Rule. Five O’s could only manage six total team hits with Jeana Jones [2 for 3] and Daischon Chin [1 for 3 – 1rbi] offering the only resistance of consequence for Five O’s. Killawhat scored all the runs they would need to secure victory in the bottom of the first inning as they led 4 – 0 including a 2-run single by Mike Smith.

Seven more runs in the 2nd inning highlighted by Mike Madeiros’ 2-run homer pushed the score to 11 – 1 after Five O’s plated an unearned run in the top of the inning. Chin drove in Jones from third base scoring Five O’s only other run while Troy Hall’s grand-slam contributed to a six run 3rd inning to stretch the score to 17 – 2. Pitcher, Rasheen Durrant, helped her own cause when she doubled-in two of Killawhat’s five runs in the bottom of the 4th inning. Troy Hall [3 for 4 – 2d, 1hr, 6rbi], Mike Sinclair [4 for 4 – 2hr, 3rbi], Christopher Medrano [4 for 4 – 1d, 2rbi], Mike Madeiros [2 for 2 – 1hr, 2rbi] and Rasheen Durrant [2 for 3 – 2d, 2rbi] all had notable performances at the plate for the victors. Killawhat now find themselves in a three-way tie for first place with Five O’s and Oddballs with identical 3 – 2 records.

In Women’s Division action, the game between Rainbows and PHC Zebras was called at the end of the 3rd inning due to the deteriorating weather conditions with the score tied at six apiece. This game will not be replayed as its result will have no bearing on the placement of the teams in the division. Therefore, Rainbows will maintain their second place position and shall face division leader, Western Stars Angels, in the double-elimination championship segment of the tournament. They will need to beat Angels twice to win the tournament whereas Angels, by virtue of the fact that they are undefeated, are only required to defeat Rainbows once to secure the championship.
