Shedden Takes Pirates, Blues Tie Boxall, Maroons Take Sailors

The fifth set of games of the 2018 Port Stanley Senior Softball season were held Wednesday, June 6th in mainly cloudy skies, with temperatures rising over the day to 17 degrees Celsius which caused many of the players for the early games to wear extra clothing.

In Game 1 Shedden took the early lead with a single run in the first, got five around the bases in the fourth, and ended with two runs in the sixth for an eight point lead. All that time that Shedden was busy making runs, the Pirates seemed to be running in reverse because of missing players until the bottom of the sixth when they came on strong sending four around the bases. The Pirates made another single in the ninth but needed three more to tie giving an easy win to Shedden with a score of Shedden 8 - Pirates 5.

In Game 2 both the Blues and Boxall got off to a slow start and finally in the fifth got on the scoreboard with the Blues sending three around the bases, while Boxall only managed one. This game seemed to be evenly matched as both teams seemed to be having trouble getting the upper hand, but in the eighth Boxall began with a single, and in the ninth added the tying run. Trying to break the tie in the extra inning failed so the game ended in the tenth tied with a score of Blues 3 - Boxall 3.

In Game 3 the Maroons came on strong in the first taking the early lead sending five players around the bases, while the Sailors got on the scoreboard with only two in the second. The Maroons kept busy with a single in the third, four in the sixth, and another single in the seventh, while the Sailors sent another two around the bases in the bottom of the seventh keeping the Maroons in the lead 11-4. Both teams played great in the eighth managing five runs a piece but a seven run gap remained through the ninth giving the Maroons the win with a final score of Maroons 16 - Sailors 9.
