It’s playoff Sunday at Havins Field and boy did we see some awesome action en route to the Championship Game! Teams were eager, hot, hungry and thirsty for their shot at the playoffs. Here’s how it all played out:
Tickle Monsters racked up 13 runs to The Dustin Cookes’ 6, to take the night’s first win right out of the gate.
In their second game, The Dustin Cookes couldn’t seem to score more than 6 runs….again! Final score: Swinging & Swigging 7, The Dustin Cookes 6!
Beer Sox had a field day up against Hit Squad dropping them by a 12-2 score. Ouch!
Brew Crew split their 2 games with a win and a loss both. They were on the short side of the stick in their first game, falling 4-11 to Pitches Be Crazy. On a bright note, they blanked Chixson Dix 7-0. Nice comeback win!
Win’r’ Lose We Booze had a nice night with 2 decisive victories. First, they blanked Statoil Sluggers 7-0 then they rolled over Two Gens 8-2. Nice night at the ballpark!
Two Gens were able to bounce back in their second game taking the 6-2 win over Blood, Sweat and Beers. Nice turnaround!
Hamvengers wound up on the short side of the bat, falling 4-9 to DuggouTGuzzlers. Then Smoking Bases took it to Hard Drives 7-0 in an uneven match up.
In the first semi final game of the night, Pitches be Hatin’ took on undefeated Muskrats for a thriller! This is what playoffs are all about! This game had 4 lead changes in 4 innings! When the dust settled…..literally……Muskrats 10 with Pitches be Hatin 8! OMG, what a game!
In the other half of the draw, and another close game, Tickle Monsters went up against Rule 34. This game was also close with some timely base running and crucial double plays. After it was all over, Rule 34 barely edged Tickle Monster 6-5 to head to the finals! Can you say awesome!!
Once again Muskrats were undefeated and made it to the final! The game was competitive but social and a blast to watch, since both teams knew each other well. Rule 34 came prepared and was dominating the first three innings. Muskrats tried to keep it competitive but Rule 34’s offense was just too strong. Rule 34 fought hard and pulled the ultimate upset with a 13-8! Champions!
It was a great night at the Little Woodrow’s Tech Ridge for happy hour after the games. As the Championship team entered the door, the other teams showed their respect with lots of cheers and even a standing ovation! Now that is how we do it in ASSC leagues! Come give us a try this next season and see what you’ve been missing!
