In a game of importance, the Colts patiently stood by and waited to see who their opponent would be from the 8 am game. would it be the power Padres or vibrant-colored Mint Julips? well, I tell you shalom fans, the .45s drew the card of playing the Padres!
coming off an impressive hard-fought game by the Padres the Colts drew the home team and huddled around Captain & team manager the one and only Mr. John Hauff. The objective was clear.. have fun, play hard and play Colt .45s softball. The first inning saw Andy Holscher; sub-Greg Ritter and Heath Jones all draw 3 straight walks for Sean "Big Daddy" Greely to hit a single RBI followed up by Mr. Rookie of the year Brad Stanford with another Single RBI and Freddy "clutch" Barraez with Sac fly RBI to tie the game up to 3-3 ending the first inning. The second inning was quiet with the stellar defense on both ends to draw a 0-0 going into the 3rd inning. The Colts would put on an additional 4 runs in the bottom of the 3rd with our top 4 hitters scoring in runs to hold the Padres yet again to a goose egg. The game would settle in with strong defense provided by the Colts to hold the Padres scoreless for the remaining of the game. With stellar pitching and an amazing second base play by sub- Greg Ritter the .45s would close out the game 8-3 to advance to the next round facing the Might Rangers.
The defensive highlight of the game goes to Sean Greely for holding the Padres to 3 runs in the first inning than zero for the remaining game until a couple last inning meaningless runs. Mr Greely was phenomenal holding the Padres in check. In addition amazing effort by both our Outfield Infield for great plays every inning.
