    Summary

    Game 12 featured the As in an 8pm night cap against Ms. Perhaps it was the humidity, perhaps it was the late game time, perhaps it was pure exhaustion from a long season. Whatever the reason, the As were silent offensively.

    The reason for the As offensive woos were numerous. For starters, the As bats were silent, as the team struggled to produce hits. Both Dale and Jason were a combined 0 and 5. A poor job by the third base coach Harrison told Tony to lead the bag prematurely on a fly-ball out by A-WOL, leading to a double play. If that werent enough, some unclassy and untimely Casey Jones impersonations by Matt and John converted walks draw from the struggling Ms pitcher into strike-outs. In all, the As offense was shut-out in 4 innings of play.

    Defensively, the As were solid. Clare, the As starting pitching, yielded only 7 runs in 4 innings of work. However, the As bullpen couldnt make her performance, fielding 18 runs in 3 innings of work, which included 2 grand slams.

    A tense situation occurred in the 3rd inning as A-WOL injured his right hand fielding a ground ball at third. He left the field that inning and returned only to bat. Remarkably, he was able to make a hit later on in the game, regardless of the injured right hand.

    Despite the heroics, the As fell to the Ms 25-7 in a game they would rather forget.

  • Clara: 4 IP, 7 Runs
