Gatorade vs. Butterfield

Gatorade started the game off with six straight hits before they got their first out then they went on to get 11 straight hits before their last batter got out. Butterfield also batted very well as they had couple of homeruns but Gatorade defense came up with the some crucial outs when it was most needed. On the second inning Gatorade had the lead after one inning by two runs, Butterfield played a much better defensive game as they got five outs with their key pitcher and first base man. Butterfield now needed to score 17 runs for the win but Gatorade also knew they had their key players at pitcher and first base. Albertini who had a average day with the bat made up as pitcher as he and Ethan Watler at first got four of the five outs to steal the game. Ethan also had three home runs during the game; Gatorade also got a homerun from Chadwick Bush.

Butterfield vs. Gatorade

The Butterfield team took the field first. Sean made an impressive effort as pitcher, hustling after the ball and fielding very well, setting the pace and displaying the spirit that all the players felt that day – the desire to play ball and play their best. After several good efforts and some close calls, Sean and Marcos got one out at 1st base. The Gatorade team batted well, and the Butterfield team was alert and ready to play and showed excellent teamwork in fielding the ball. On Gatorade’s last batter, Justin made a great stop in left field and tossed the ball to Megan at 2nd base, who then ran just as fast as she could to home plate to get the batter out.

Butterfield team went up to bat it was clear that our batting and base running were excellent and continuing to improve. Six batters on base before Gatorade got their first out. Gatorade got out at 2nd base, then after four more batters Gatorade got an out at 1st base. There was another out at 2nd base, then Kaylee went up to bat with the bases loaded and brought all 3 runners in home safe.

Going in to the 2nd inning, Gatorade had 2 outs more than Butterfield. Kaylee and Kristopher got 2 outs at 1st base. Matthew Hydes did a lot of hustling at Left Short Stop and he and Justin made some close plays trying to get an out at 3rd. Justin did field one of the hits that came right by 3rd base and got the runner out coming from 2nd base. And finally, Kaylee got the last batter out, for a total of 5 outs – a very good effort against good batting and base running.

So Butterfield went to bat last with 7 outs to Gatorade’s 4. They got our 2nd batter out, then we saw Elias hit a home run to clear the bases. Justin hit a Double, but then Gatorade got the next 2 batters out to tie the game. The pressure was on Butterfield to get the 12 remaining batters home safe. It looked like me might do it as 4 more batters made it around the bases, but then Gatorade got another out at 1st, then another. The Butterfield team remained determined to play their best and the last 5 batters made it home safe, including a nice home run hit by Kaylee as last batter.

Players of the Match: Kaylee, Kristohper, Justin, Megan, Matthew, Elias, Sean and Marcos

Final Score: 31 to 29 Gatorade

The offense struggled in the bottom of the inning when Bodden Beverage allowed just three batters to come to the plate. The third inning brought out the pitching machine. It is used to give the batters a more consistent pitch to hit. The Esso defense held again, getting three of five batters out. Two outs came via a double play off a caught pop fly and tagging a runner that left the base to soon.

In the bottom of the third Esso got two more runs, one of which came off a line drive hit by Alex Harris. Bodden Beverage got two more runs in the top of the forth, closing out the scoring for the game. Nicholas Leonard also got a hit in the game.

In the bottom of the first, they allowed 12 batters to come to the plate with 6 of them scoring. Four of the runs were scored by batters who got to first by being walked. Add to that a couple of hits and it was looking like Dart would have a blow out. It wasn’t much better in the second. Coldwell banker got one run back when Ben Drummond scored but that was it with two of the next three batters striking out and the third being thrown out at first. In the bottom of the inning, Dart scored another three runs making the score 9 to 2. That is where the game made a turn for the better for Coldwell Banker. The defense stiffened and didn’t allow Dart to score another run.

Jesse Parham (the third) and Carlos Whittaker (the 4th and 5th) were on the mound, keeping the batters hitting to the defense. Ian Dilbert made two great catches (his first of the season) in right field and Tanner Hatch made an inning ending grab at second. Cody Miller helped on offense with a triple in the third and double in the fifth. Tanner Hatch and Paul Westin, both from the 10-12 division, made plays to help Coldwell win the game. Paul, made the play of the game when he hit a ball through the right side of the infield that went to the fence allowing the go-ahead runs to score. He scored a few plays later on an infield grounder.

Players of the Match: Ian Dilbert and Paul Westin.
