The Storm put up nine runs in the first inning, against an injury depleted Greenthumb team. After that the Storm easily powered their way to a 19 - 9 victory thanks to Homerun's from Joey and Bob, and some good pitching by all three Storm pitchers. This, the 20th win of the season marks the sixth consecutive season with 20 or more wins for the Storm. One more game against Bradley motors, then bring on the playoff's!

It wasn't a poorly played game by the Storm, but a few timely errors and a lack of power at the plate are hurting the Storm. The 22 - 6 final could easily have been reversed if some of the Storms' line drives were not hit directly at Direct Elevator players. Direct played well and hit well, but a few defensive miscues allowed innings to continue long past the third out.

The Storm had very little offense in the first 6 innings, but managed to score three runs in the top of the 7th. Those runs allowed the Storm to take a one run lead into the bottom of the 7th but Hanet had a lead-off double and a couple of batters later he scored to tie the game at 3. The defense was solid by both teams as there were few hits by both teams.

The Falcons have shown their sense of humor again. This picture is posted on their website. But at least our legs look good.

The game was close for 5 innings with it going back and forth between the two teams. But in the 6th inning the Storm sent 12 batters to the plate and produced 8 runs. That was just too much for Coulas to come back from. The final score was Storm 17 - Coulas 11

The dark storm clouds along with big drops of rain and the sheets of lightning and loud thunder claps were not enough to keep the Storm from recording their 18th win of the year. This was a game that had good defense by both teams, a few timely hits, and a lot of X's. it took less than an hour for the Storm to defeat the Rebels 6 to 5 in 7 innings. The Storm were down by one going into the top of the 7th but came out victorious thanks to some heads up base running and one errant throw home.
Once the pregame crying was over, the Falcons settled for the first base bench. The game started off with the Falcons getting a couple of hits and with the bases loaded who is up to bat, of course David! Al tries to be careful and give him very little to hit, but no luck he hammers his 27th or 47th or something like that to deep centre field. In the end David and Greg are intentionally walked 3 times each giving up 4 runs in the process, but it seemed worth it at the time. The 25 - 8 score wasn't great, but at least we'll still make the playoffs.

The Extreme team grabbed victory right out of the hand of the Storm, by scoring 5 runs on 8 hits in the bottom of the 6th. The Storm had no answer in the 7th which resulted in a 7 to 4 loss. Extreme Contracting wins the season series 3 games to 1.

With the help of a three run HR by Joey and a Grand Slam HR by Brad, the Storm overpowered Greenthumb by a 14 to 9 final. This was a well played game with few errors, one close call in centre field and some superb pitching by Al. The Storm scored early and offen then held on in the end as Greenthumb tried hard in the last few inning to come back.

It was a disappointing night, as Hanet came up a few players short last night and had to default the game. The good news was that the Storm was able to practice for a hour. It was a lot of fun for everyone to play the different positions all night. But in the end it was a 7 - 0 victory.
