22/06/17 Drizzle

A game of two halves, Drizzle took a big lead half way through the 3rd but after that we came roaring back and won going away, only allowing 2 further runs in the last 4 innings whilst scoring consistently ourselves.

OBP leaders were Dan and Dave who each batted 1000. Home Run hero was Michael with TK having to settle for another triple as she again came oh so close to breaking her duck.

In the field Dave pitched well on his return from injury. TK and Jackie both looked good as they took turns on 1st. Michael looked very good at 3rd after moving there mid game. Sandra and Caroline both took nice outfield catches.

15/06/17 Pirates

We took a big early lead in this game, but the hard hitting Pirates came back well in the top of the 3rd and whilst we never lost the lead we could never really relax until the last out was recorded. The pirates hit half a dozen Home Runs to our two but our patience at the plate and willingness to take a walk won us the game.

People up and down the order got on base and whilst no one was perfect at the plate Tony, Emma, TK, Rob and guest Steve B. all went 4 for 5. The Home Run heroes were Dan and Michael with 1 apiece.

In the field Steve pitched well. Dan took some impressive catches at short. TK played well on 1st and Michael put in a fine performance in the outfield, though he picked up a rather large bruise along the way !

08/06/17 Bats

All good things come to an end and after 4 wins on the bounce at the start of the season we finally tasted defeat in game 5 against an experienced and efficient Bats team. We didn't do a bad job in the field but we struggled when batting, we didn't get enough runners on base and didn't get the hits to drive in the base runners we did get.

In the field, despite a few forced errors, we performed reasonably effectively as a team. Highlights included a couple of nice catches from JD at shortstop and some good work by Rob in left field.

OBP leaders were Dan (3 for 3) and Michael (2 for 2) who each batted 1000. Home Run hero was Dan with 2 solo dingers.

Along the way we chalked up a couple of firsts, Michael showed promise in his league pitching debut when he came on in relief, and Jen took to the field for the first time in what was her 3rd league appearance.

01/06/17 Rippers

An efficient performance against a Rippers side that never really got going until the 6th inning. Alyssa and JD made their first league appearances of the season and it was good to see them in action at last. Guest Steve Beddows pitched as Dave was out with a knee injury.

OBP leaders were JD and Caroline who each went 4 for 4 at the plate. Home Run Heroes were Dan and JD with 1 apiece. Everyone else got on base at least once and there were strong performances up and down the order.

Steve B. pitched really well and was perhaps unlucky to miss out on recording a shutout to go with the W. Michael looked good on 3rd, Alyssa took a couple of nice catches in left including the catch 'em out throw 'em out double play that ended the game. Rob took a good running catch in centre left and everyone else contributed to a good defensive display.

25/05/17 Storm

A high scoring, and fluctuating game, we were ahead for most of it but could never rest easy until the final run was scored on Michael's walk off Home Run. We conceded 6 Home Runs and only scored 3 of our own but a disciplined batting performance allowed us to keep getting on base and driving the runs in. We again had people playing out of position and players who were playing injured but we just did enough to secure the win.

TK (6 for 6), Michael (6 for 6) and Dave (5 for 5) were perfect at the plate, all batting 1000. Home Run heroes were Michael with 2 and Dan with 1. We struggled a bit at times in the outfield against a strong Storm batting line up but we kept our heads up and kept plugging away through the game. Dave pitched well, Dan was good at short and TK defied her bad back to put in a strong performance at 1st.

11/05/17 Drizzle

Week 2 of the league season and a slightly makeshift and battered Tigers team secured a hard fought victory against a Drizzle side who were unlucky to come out on the wrong end of a see saw game. We took a big lead early on, gave it away, fell behind, snuck back into the lead and just held on at the end with a fine catch by new girl Jackie at 3rd giving us the victory.

OBP leader was Dan who went 5 for 5, with Tony and Michael (each 4 for 5) close behind. Home Run Heroes were Michael, with 2, and Annie with her first ever homer. In the field, Jackie played well at 3rd, Emma was solid at 1st, Michael was the standout in the outfield and Dave pitched a good game.

Steve deserves a special mention for playing when he really wasn't fit, and other people went out and did a fine job in unfamiliar positions. We have done it tough on the injury front so far this season but with a rest week coming up we may have more bodies back on board before we play again.

04/05/17 Outlaws

We recorded a fine win to start our 2017 league season in a tight game played in an excellent spirit. The Outlaws were in the lead for the first half of the game, but we shut them out for the last four innings whilst gradually accumulating runs ourselves. Injuries and work commitments meant we had to use 2 guest players, the first guests we have included in the lineup since 2015, both Jonny and Jade played a full part in our victory but there were lots of other fine performances up and down the lineup.

In the field Dan was excellent at short stop, Michael impressed at 3. Dave pitched well, Emma recorded a large number of outs at 2nd and Sandra and Caroline both recorded important outs in the outfield. Annie took a nice catch on a pop up, and paid the price as she was cleaned out (accidentally) by the base runner. Guest Jade was impressive on 1st and Jonny Huck recorded an impressive sliding catch in right field.

OBP leaders were Dan and Rob, both 3 for 3, with Emma close behind, unfortunate to only go 2 for 3. Home Run Hero was Jonny with 2 homers, including a Grand Slam in the 4th that gave us the lead we held for the rest of the game.

Jennie made her debut for the team and had a successful time, getting her first hit and also scoring a run !
