Pirates Sink Sailors, Boxall Takes Shedden, Blues Over Maroons

The ninth set of games of the 2018 Port Stanley Senior Softball season were held Wednesday, June, 27th, 2018 in cloudy skies, with periods of rain, and temperatures rising to 23 degrees Celsius. The wind was from the southwest at 30 km/h, gusting to 50 km/h, and a UV index of 4 or moderate. Today many players decided to take a rain day but at the ball park the ones that showed up toughed it out and played rain or shine for more than one team.

In Game 1 the Pirates took the early lead in the first with four and never looked back, sending five around the bases in the fourth, one in the fifth, another five in the sixth, and only two in the eighth to end with 17. The Sailors finally got a break in the ninth getting two runs, just too little, too late to do much except hold back until the next game sending the Pirates into the winners circle with a final score of Pirates 17 - Sailors 2.

In Game 2 Boxall took the early lead with one run in the third, kept the momentum going with another two in the fifth, and ended with a single in the sixth, while Shedden remained scoreless. Another easy win today this time for the Boxall over Shedden with a final score of Boxall 4 - Shedden 0.

In Game 3 the Blues took the lead in the fifth sending five players around the bases, while the Maroons got on the scoreboard with a single run in the sixth. In the eighth the Maroons managed to pick up another two runs, while the Blues added another single to their lead to end with six. The Maroons came close in the ninth almost getting a tie, but fell one short making only two runs giving the Blues the win with a final score of Blues 6 - Maroons 5.
