In Women’s Division action, Western Stars Angels won a nail-bitter over Rainbows 9 – 8. Their big inning came in the bottom of the third where they scored five runs including a three-run triple by Terry Ewart to go ahead 6 – 3. Rainbows scored three runs in the fifth to tie the score, highlighted by Stephanie Arango’s two-run double and they scored two additional runs in the top of the sixth inning to take a two-run lead. Angels’ Nikita Trott and Keisha Eve both drove in a run in the bottom of the sixth inning to tie the score. Rainbows’ offence sputtered in the seventh and it was Ewart again providing the critical hit as she drove in the speedy Tameisha Manders from second base to score the winning run. Ewart [2 for 4 – 1d, 4rbi] and Trott [2 for 4 – 2d, 2rbi] topped the balanced hitting attack of Angels. Arango [2 for 4 – 1d, 3rbi] was the standout for Rainbows.

Rainbows quickly put their early week loss in their rear view mirror as they rebounded to defeat PHC Zebras 12 – 10. A pair of two-run doubles by Danielle Gibbons and Rebecca Schoeler in the first and second innings respectively assisted Rainbows in amassing an 8 – 3 lead over PHC. However, PHC scored five runs off five hits in the top of the third inning to even the score at eight. Rainbows’ Natasha Lambert hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning and two more runs in the fifth, including an rbi single by Goretti Clementine, driving in Ashley Borges from third base, turned out to be the winning run with the score at 11 – 10. An insurance run was added in the sixth inning giving Rainbows some breathing room and the win. Gibbons [2 for 3 – 1d, 3rbi] and 2rbi from each of Schoeler, Clementine and Borges did the bulk of the damage for Rainbows. PHC Zebras were led by Taznae Fubler, Ria Grenardo and Chanae Burgess each with 2rbi in a losing effort.

In A Division action, The Hit Factory outscored Platano Power 21 – 20 but their victory may have been gifted when Platano Power, who scored fifteen runs in the first inning and led 18 – 7 after the fifth inning, made wholesale substitutions at the end of the fifth inning and could only muster two additional runs from an offence that grinded to a halt. The Hit Factory took full advantage scoring twelve runs in the sixth and two more in the top of the seventh inning. Platano showed some life in the bottom of the seventh inning when Yefer Vinicio blasted a two-run shot to pull within a run but it turned out to be too little, too late. Steven Simons [4 for 5 – 2hr, 5rbi], Shaquille Trott and Rakeem DeShields with 3rbi each, led the assault for The Hit Factory while Vinicio [5 for 5 – 3hr, 10rbi], Lewis Reynoso and Edison Tavarez with 2rbi each were the standouts for Platano Power.

Moongate Brewers behind Kyle Steineman [1hr, 5rbi], Gary Adams [1hr, 3rbi] and Mike Sakata [1hr, 3rbi] defeated Bermuda Bananas 19 – 13. Brewers trailed 9 – 11 after four innings but they plated four runs in the fifth inning including a two-run shot by Sakata to lead 13 – 11. Bananas tied the score in the top of the sixth inning on a Mark James two-run homer. However, Brewers responded in the bottom of the inning scoring their final six runs highlighted by Steineman’s grandslam. Pitcher, Danny Cook, set them down in order in the top of the seventh inning to nullify the threat.

In B Division action, former A Division team, King Beaches, outlasted another former A Division team, Paraquet Flyers 15 – 13. Going into the top of the seventh inning and trailing 9 – 13, King Beaches rallied scoring six runs including a three-run blast by John Rolph and Paraquet could not reciprocate. Lead-off batter, Les Dziwenka [4 for 5 – 2d, 1hr, 7rbi] and Rolph [3 for 5 – 2hr, 5rbi] did most of the damage for the victors while Andrew Simpson [3 for 5 – 1hr, 4rbi] and Leonardo Silvera [4 for 5 – 1d, 3rbi] topped Flyers offensive output.

Hakuna Mata Lions devoured Hosers 22 – 2 in a four inning mercy-rule affair. New team, Hosers, may be questioning their decision to play B Division ball, given the fact that they had four total team hits with Brad Koperdraad [2 for 2 – 1rbi] offering the only resistance. Lions, in comparison, had twenty-one total team hits and were led by Rohann Simons [4 for 4 – 2d, 2t, 5rbi], Stephen Smith [3 for 3 – 1d, 1hr, 5rbi] and Scott Barnes [3 for 4 – 1d, 1hr, 3rbi].

In C Division action, Killawhat defeated Corporation of Hamilton 20 – 17. An explosion of runs by Killawhat in the fifth inning, where they scored five runs, including a three-run blast by Mike Sinclair, and a further six runs in the top of the sixth inning, helped them to secure the victory. Corporation of Hamilton scored nine runs in the fifth inning including a Quinn Simmons solo homer and a two-run single by Rico Smith. However, they could only manage one final run in the seventh. Sinclair [2 for 4 – 1 hr, 1sf, 4rbi], Troy Hall [4 for 4 – 4rbi], Khimo Harrison [3 for 4 – 2d, 3rbi] and Tawana Lee [3rbi] provided most of the firepower for Killawhat while Quinn Simmons [4 for 5 – 2d, 1hr, 5rbi] and Smith [3 for 4 – 2d, 3rbi] were respectable offensively for Corporation of Hamilton.

Reach Bums made short work of Raggamuffins brushing them aside 16 – 0 in five innings. We did a double-take as we found it hard to believe that Raggamuffins could muster only one hit in the game! Justin Corday [3 for 3 – 2hr, 6rbi] and Katie Masters [2 for 3 – 1d, 3rbi] topped all batters in this lopsided affair.

In E Division action, Home None made light work of Deloitte as they won via the fifteen-run mercy rule, 21 – 4. Evan Hughes belted a grand-slam in the first inning to make the score 5 – 0, which turned out to be all the runs they would need to secure the win. Home None were paced by Hughes [2 for 4 – 2hr, 6rbi] and Jesse Marshall [4 for 5 – 1t, 5rbi]. Alje Richardson [2 for 3 – 1hr, 2rbi] was Deloitte’s top batter.
