Storm answer back and tie Direct Elevator

It took a 7th inning comeback, but we finally reached double digits in the scorebook again. Good thing too because the Storm almost blew this one. The Storm had a commanding 8 to 1 lead then the basts fell silent and Direct Elevator kept chipping their way back and finally taking a two run lead in the bottom of the sixth. But some clutch hitting from the heart of the Storm order the deficit was erased. In the end it was a 10 to 10 draw.

A Win in only 47min's

In what might have been the quickest Slo-pitch game ever played, the Storm beat Hanet 6 to 3 in only 47 minutes. The Storm Defense had a great night, and although the Storm offense only had 13 hits, 4 were home runs (only 2 counted as such) and three were doubles. Let's hope that the bats come back to play shortly, as you will not win many games scoring only 6 runs.

Also... Thanks to Danny and Mike for a fun party, it appeared everyone had a great time, and the extra time because of the short game made it that much more enjoyable.

No Hits......means another loss

Having only nine hits in a slopitch game will not win you many games, and thus the Storm earned their 5th loss of the season scoring only 5 runs on 9 spread-out hits. Al did his best to make this game close with a HR in the top of the 7th to tie it, but then nothing. The Storm could not hold Xtreme off the board for a fourth srtaight inning and they got their winning run in the bottom of the 7th. We could not take advantage of the five walks we received either. Hopefully the bats show up for the next game against Hanet. Final Score Xtreme 6 - Storm 5.

Don't forget Pool Party at Danny's place after Sunday's game.

Bat's go silent against Greenthumb

13 Hit's just aren't enough to beat any team in this league. As a result the Storm suffered their fourth loss of the season. Final score was 10 to 4.

Storm Squeeze out victory in the bottom of the 7th

In a game that had the Storm down 6 nothing after a half inning, we were lucky to stay in this game. Mayhem had their own up's and downs, with one of those ups being a mammoth HR to deep deep centre field( Cleared the light pole in Centre field). Good news for the Storm was a missed play by Mayhem in the 7th that allowed us to score the winning run. We'll take it, god knows we give enough of those away. Make the final 12 - 11.

No hit's means no runs....

The Storm could not get the bats going at all last night, Joey's 7th HR of the year was the only high-lite of the night, which was full of plenty of low-lites. The 9 to 3 score could have been worse or slightly better with a few timely hits.

Storm even the season series against Coulas

The weather was perfect for this game, Storm had 10 players for this game, and everyone came to play, good fielding, great hitting and superb pitching ensured that the Storm was taking this game. The final was Storm 14 and Coulas Bone Crushers 8.

Storm over power Rebels

The Rebels had one good inning, problem for them was they were shut-out in all the other 6 innings. Mike and Al both had good outings this day. One bad inning in the middle was all the Rebels could muster. Make the final Storm 18 Rebels 6.

Crushed by an Elevator

Storm came out strong, but Direct Elevator finished stronger, and in the end out scored us by 8 runs. Final score Diect Elevator 19 - Storm 11
