The A.L. Thompson Hammers still have a chance of causing postseason havoc.
The division one squad registered a 15-8 win over KPMG A last Monday at the Field of Dreams in George Town. The contest is part of the Cayman Islands Little League 2012 Winter Adult Co-Ed Softball League.
With the victory, A.L. Thompson’s are a respectable 4-4 in their group. Behind veteran players like Simon Rivers, the side has scored 90 runs (second in their division) while allowing 87 runs. In spite of talent like volleyball star Richard Campbell, KPMG A are 3-5 in division two, tied for last place with the Maples Sluggers.
Both sides saw their division frontrunners register big wins. Home Gas, 7-0, are now four games clear of the Hammers in the loss column with a 16-9 win over the Kirk Freeport Coconuts (who are in the cellar at 2-6). Behind Home Gas are the 5-2 Butterfield Legion of Boom, 4-2 Island Taste Hot Stuff and reigning champions KM Ltd with a 3-4 record.
KPMG A saw Maples lose to the 3-4 Walkers Warriors. Master Batters are also 3-4 in division two while the 3-4 BritCay Premiums had a big 11-6 victory over division leaders Coors Light Chuggers (5-2). The ClubHouse Crabbies are keeping pace at 4-4.
Division three is dominated by the 7-1 Deloitte Tigers, who beat the 3-4 KPMG Bounty Hunters last Thursday. Starfish Sports are second at 6-1 after beating the 3-4 UBS Aces. The Security Centre Safes are third at 4-4 after downing 0-8 Dolphin Cove. Dart got a forfeit win over PWC B to put both sides level at 3-5.
HSBC are 7-0 atop division four after beating the 2-4-1 G-Force. The 2-4-1 PWC Scorpions revived their playoff hopes with a 14-13 win over the 2-5 Harbour House Marina Whalers.
