Game 1: Throwdown vs Irish Car Bombs
Jon Poore helped Throwdown get on the board first with a 2-run dinger in the top of the 1st. A Matt Hatch RBI triple was part of a 3 run bottom half for ICB. Irish Car Bombs would add 6 more runs over the next three innings to build a 9-2 lead heading into the 5th. Half of the damage was done by a Matt Hatch 3-run homer. Throwdown wakes up in the 5th, scoring four runs, 2 of which came from a Bryan Peterman triple. That would be all the damage they did for the rest of the night. ICB then lit it up, scoring 11 ion the bottom half of the 5th. A 3-run homer by John Erb got the party started and they never looked back. ICB wins 21-6
Game 2: In Place Cabinetry vs Chico's Bail Bonds
This game was much more competitive than the first. After Chico's stormed out to a 4 run lead after the first all bats went silent until the 4th. That was when In Place would tie it up scoring four runs of their own. The game really started in the 6th when both teams came alive. In Place would platre 7 runs in the frame which included an RBI double by Mike Downey. Chico's would not be outdone, scoring 9 of their own to take a 2 run lead into the last inning. Bill Shipe was a key contributor in the inning with a 2-run laser into the woods. However, In Place would have the last laugh. A 2-run Vito Nigro single tied it up. The very next batter would sac fly in what would be the winning run. In Place takes it 14-13.
Game 3: In Place Cabinetry vs phillyjunk.com
In Place had no time for rest as they knew they would need to keep the sticks going against a potent phillyjunk.com squad. Tom Rider struggled to get going as he walked 3 of the first 4 batters he saw (I assumed he pitched). In Cabinet brought home 4 runs in the first to keep their momentum going. Mike Bitterlich would get 3 runs back off his bomb that went to Doylestown. In Cabinet's bats went to sleep for a few innings while Philly Junk kept churning, scoring 9 more runs across the 2nd and 3rd innings. Andy May, Tom Rider and Chris Johnson all chipped in with extra base hits and Shane Hanna had a solo dinger. In Cabinet came back by scoring 11 runs across the 4th and 5th innings. Shawn Ortman and Mike Downey both had doubles to lead the way. Due to time the 5th would be the last inning. Philly Junk trailed by 2 heading into the home half of the inning.

Philly Junk brought home 12 more runs over the next 4 innings which included a homer by Craig Richards and extra base hits by Andy May, Tom Rider and Nick Mancini.
