Game 1 - Misfits @ Sons of Pitches
Both teams would start slow going scoreless in the 1st. Misfits would string a series of singles together to plate 3 in the 2nd. Trevor Rice drove in 2 of those three. Sons of Pitches would get a run in the 3rd from a Bob Louderback single, and one more from Jason Dickerson off of a Kenny Huber single in the 4th. And that's all she wrote for SofP's. 2 runs. The Misfits would post 3 more in the 5th inning - runs by Rice, Chris Triolo, and Jim Carden.

Misfits defeats Sons of Pitches, 7-2.
Player of the Game - Trevor Rice - Misfits, 2/3, 1 run scored, 2 RBIs.

Game 2 - Dirty Dozen @ Kobra Kai
Justin O'Brien (D12) started the 1st inning with a bang - a two run bang, driving in himself and Roc Akers. Kobra Kai answered with a Jake Haber 3-run shot and a Jeremy Figueroa RBI single. The remainder of this game was less impressive, as a few runs trickled in here and there. D12 with get solo shots fromk Cody Nash and Ryan McGraw. But it wouldn't be enough. Figueroa and Steve Reed would each score 2 more times, heling KK tally 10 for the night.

Kobra Kai defeats Dirty Dozen, 10-6.

Mike Shutt would score in the 6th, giving the Misfits a 7-2 lead. But in the bottom of the 6th, American Legion would awake. Tony Casper would lead off the inning with a single that would start an incredible streak. 9 straight batters would score for AL, including back to back shots from Shawn Hines and Brian Wrigley.

American Legion defeats the Misfits, 11-7.
Player of the Game - Shawn Hines - American Legion - 2/3, 1 HR, 3 RBIs, 2 runs scored.

Shout out to scorekeeper, Fern. In the words of Billy Joel, "Life is a series of hellos and goodbyes." For now it's goodbye... until next week!
