Our Summer 2014 Monday softball season wrapped up last night with the number one seed In Scoring Position living up to their ranking and capturing the championship.
The night of playoff softball began with a semi final match featuring our eventual champions In Scoring Position taking on the number four seed Where My Pitches At in a rematch of the regular season finale played a week earlier. Despite a valliant effort from shorthanded Where My Pitches At, In Scoring Position proved too strong winning the game by score of 12-2. In the second semi-final, number two seed Backdoor Sliders edged out number three seed I'd Hit Those Blue Balls 4-0 in a well played defensive affair.
The championship game was a powerhouse matchup of the leagues top two teams. Backdoor Sliders jumped out to an early lead, hitting a home run in the bottom of the third. In the top of the fifth, In Scoring Position was finally able to string together some hits, and with some gutsy base running, plated 2 runs to take the lead. Backdoor Sliders tried to answer back but drew nothing in the bottom of the fifth. Then in the top of the sixth, In Scoring Position broke it open by plating 4 more runs. Their stingy defense and solid play did not allow a run or a hit in the 6th, and they capped a great season with the championship.
Congratulations to In Scoring Position and to all of the teams that competed in a great softball season.
