Game 3: Blue Wins Series 1

After two weeks of rainouts, the first Red versus Blue series concluded on Saturday with Blue taking both the game and the series, behind strong pitching performances by Heather and Sofi and the entire team at the plate.

The Red team jumped out to an early lead, scoring 2 in the top of the first. Blue answered with 1 in their half, then kept answering, as they knocked in two dozen more runs over the next six innings. Red had runners on base every inning, but none crossed the plate again until the sixth. Red scored 6 more runs over the last three innings, but it was not enough to overcome Blue’s big lead, for a final of 25-9.

Blue’s offense was led by leadoff hitter Annie, who was 5-6 on the day with three doubles and Heather who went 3-4 with a bases-clearing double. Minda, Maria and Kim all had two hits. Kim was robbed of a third by Kelly S, who ran down a well-struck hit down the left field line. The bottom half of Blue’s lineup played a big role in their victory, scoring 16 of the the team’s runs. On the mound, Heather and Sofi combined to hold the Red team to just 4 hits and 3 runs over six innings.

Red’s offense was once again led by Christine, who went 2-4 wth 2 doubles and 2 walks. Amy and Tracy each had two hits while Val and Penny smacked doubles.
