Storm and Broadway played a tight back and forth game. Storm had the edge for most of the game leading 3-2 after the first, 4-2 after the second, 9-7 after the third, 11-9 after the fourth. 14-11 after the fifth and still 14-11 after the sixth. Then Broadway exploded for seven runs in the top of the seventh to take their first lead since the top of the third. Up 18-14, they retired the first two batters for outs. Rene then stepped up to the plate and worked the count full before watching ball four fall inches from the plate after sailing miles into the sky. Duran, Lance, and Joey all followed with singles. Joey was the tying run at first base. They pitched Craig carefully, and he walked, moving the tying run to second. Al then doubled, and Joey scored, tying the game. With runners on second and third and Jeff up, Broadway elected to intentionally walk Jeff, creating a force play at every base hoping to hold on to the tie. Dave then came up and, full of rage from two earlier calls from the umpire, smacked the ball over every fielder’s head, clearing the bases and giving Storm the win. All the damage was done with two outs. Two out walks always come back to haunt you.
Rene - 3 for 3, 4 runs, 3 RBI, HR, triple, 2 out walk to extend the game!
Duran - 4 for 4, 4 runs, RBI
Lance - 4 for 4, 2 runs, 2 RBI
Dave - 3 for 4, 4 RBI (game winning hit!)
Rene missed the double
