Pirates Now Leading Series

The fifteenth set of games of the 2017 Port Stanley Senior Softball season were held Friday, July 21st in mostly cloudy skies, with temperatures rising over the day to 28 degrees Celsius, a Humidex of 34 and the wind from the Northwest at 12 km/h.

In Game 1 the Maroons finally took the early lead in the fourth with two runs, while Boxall got on the scoreboard in the eighth with two runs to tie the game. The Maroons added another run in the ninth to take the win with a final score of Maroons 3 - Boxall 2.

In Game 2 Shedden got off to an excellent start with four runs in the first, while the Pirates managed two. The Pirates added another two runs in the third to tie the game, then another in the fifth to take the lead, and made the last run of the game in the sixth to take the win with a final score of Pirates 6 - Shedden 4.

In Game 3 the Sailors took the early lead in the first with two runs, only to have the Blues tie the game in the top of the second. The Sailors came back in the bottom of the second to retake the lead, and with some great playing, and a little luck managed five big runs. After the second inning the Sailors were leading with a score of 7-2, but like all good things, that was about to change, because the Blues really needed a win. The change started in the fourth with just one, then after a great fifth, the Blues managed another five runs to steel that lead, only to settle with a tie after the Sailors came back with one in the bottom of the fifth. Now after the fifth the game was tied, you could feel the tension in the air as each player came up to bat. The Blues got the lead with one in the sixth, but that didn't last as the Sailors managed a run in the eighth to tie the game again. The Blues managed to regain the lead in the ninth to finally take the win with a final score of Blues 10 - Sailors 9.
