Back to our old ways....

Giving the opponents 4 or more outs an inning is a bad recipe for a victory. Therefore Xtreme took full advantage of our sloppy defense scoring 7 unearned runs in the second inning on way to a 17 to 10 victory. The only good news for the Storm was a grand slam by AL and a triple turned into double by Colin.

Storm Bats keep rolling

The Storm had another good night at the plate scoring 17 runs. The big story of the day was made when the new team rep listening to his overeager rookie about wasting a courtesy runner, on an already competent courtesy runner. Well this move back fired as the Storm ran out of Courtesy runners with Colin on first base(Not a good thing, fortunately it doesn't happen that much). Cause of course Colin's base running gets Fred caught in a run down for the last out of the game, with who else but "Jeff & Bob" coming up to bat on a night that already see's Bob hit for the cycle. Hopefully the lessons has been learned, if not tonight's lineup should send a good message who is really running this team. Oh by the way the final was 17 to 8 for the Storm.

The Storm hit, as the rain fell

The Rain started to fall just as the game got started, Which turned out pretty good for the Storm as they had one of the better nights at the plate lashing out 26 hits. This allowed the Storm to even out the home and home series with the Falcons this week. The Final was 18 - 5 for the Storm.

"4 out" Innings Kill Storm

You just don't win many games when you continually give your opponent 4 or more outs per inning. The Storm did not bring their "A" game defensively last night in a 18 to 12 beating at the hands of Hanet. Let's see what the next game bring tonight against the Falcons.

Yet Another 1 Run Loss

This was Brad's game to forget, it was almost an exact duplicate of the previous game. Except this time it was Brad's turn to have a tuff game in the field. Which helped the Devils get 6 of their 12 runs in one inning. We tried to make this close as the Storm scored 5 runs in the bottom of the 6th inning. However a scoreless 7th means that we lost another one run game, our third one this year. Final 12 - 11.

Back and fourth affair ends with a tie

If only I played a better game this would have been a Storm much needed victory, however a couple of deep shots over my head in right centre in the 7th inning proved very costly as Coulas came back from a three run deficit to take a two run lead, fortunately the bottom of the Storm line-up was able to tie it up at 9 in the bottom half of the seventh inning. Two bad I flied out with the bases loaded to end the game in a 9 - 9 draw.

Greenthumb win it in a walkoff

The Storm had chances, and gave Greenthumb chances, unfortunately Greenthumb took advantage of there chances better than the Storm. In the top of sixth the Storm took the lead, but in the bottom of the seventh the bases full and two out, Todd cranks a belt to deep right field that hit the base of the wall. Final score Greenthumb 12, Storm 11

Falcons destroy Storm

The only good thing to happen in this game was Brad's inside the park Homerun. The rest is better left unsaid. Falcons 15 , Storm a very lucky 7.
