By Allz, 09/22/22, 1:45PM CDT


Game 1:  Aviators vs Storm Chasers     Field 3   8:00am

The visiting Aviators were ready for take-off, and sent their entire lineup to the plate in the 1st inning.  Scoring 7 runs on 8 hits, as everyone was involved.   7-0 Aviators after 1st inning.

The 2nd inning was much the same; 11 batters, 7 hits, 6 runs.  All of the Aviators were putting the ball into play.   The Storm Chasers fired back with a run of their own.  13-1 Aviators lead after 2.

Both teams were quiet in the 3rd inning, and the score remained unchanged.  13-1 Aviators after 3.

The 4th inning saw 3 Aviators cross the plate on 4 hits & a sacrifice fly.  Mercy rule in effect.

Game 2:  Leones vs. Aviators      Field 4    9:10am

Aviators score quickly on hits by Lee, Loiben, & Collincini.  0-3 Aviators after 1 inning.

No teams score in the 2nd, but the Leones plate 4 runs in the top of the 3rd.  Lee & Loiben both reach base with hits for the Aviators, and are each rewarded with Runs Scored.  4-5 Aviators after 3.

Neither team was able to change the score in the 4th inning, as only odd numbered innings will allow a score.  The 5th inning starts with 2 runs for the Leones, who temporarily take the lead for the 2nd time in this game.  Brian Lee gets on base with a 2B, and ends up leveling the score at 6-6 after 5.

6th inning was even.  No scores, but drama builds.  Score still tied 6-6, going into the 7th inning.

Aviator pitching & defense holds the Leones to zero runs in the 7th, and sends Aviator batters 10, 11, & 12 to the plate.  BB for TMac, Single for T. Barnes, and BB for B. Alvara to load the bases with 0 outs in the bottom of the 7th.  Brian Lee could have celebrated a Sacrifice Fly…but that’s not his style.  Lee singles up the middle to walk it off!

Great pitching.  Great defense.  Great all-around team effort to pull out the win.

Leones 6,    Aviators 7
