Week 2 of the Tanglewood Cornhole Baseball Fall Fun League is in the books. This past Wednesday saw the action heat up with teams in great form, and if I might add noticeably more boisterous. In fact one particular court, oh let’s say…..Court 1 even had a cheering section. Did I mention this is a fun league? Great to see.
Let’s get to the National Division action……
Court 1….The high flying Sandbaggers took both games from the Bag Ladies….despite their coordinated cheers. Those Sandbaggers built up a 14-2 lead by the end of the 2nd inning and went on to win 17-6 in the first game. Completing the sweep the Sandbaggers edged out our Bag Ladies 10-9 in a much tighter second game. So close!
Court 2…. Keeping pace in the race for first in the National Division, the Firecrackers blasted the Squids 13-5 in their first match. The Squids did hold a brief 5-3 lead after 2 innings, but the Firecrackers took care of business scoring 10 unanswered runs for the win. Game 2 saw the Firecrackers explode for 7 runs in the first inning as they breezed to an 8-2 win over the Squids.
Court 3…. The Twisters were no match for the Pioneers on this night as the Pioneers took both games of the doubleheader. In Game 1 the Pioneers scored in every inning except the 6th on their way to an easy 12-2 drubbing of the Twisters. Game 2 saw the Pioneers take a 7-0 lead into the last inning where the Twisters churned out 2 runs avoiding the shutout. Pioneers 7 Twisters 2.
American Division Results……
Court 4…. Moving into a tie for 1st place in the American Division, the Toss Ups took both ends of their doubleheader against the Patriots. Game 1 saw the Toss Ups blank the Patriots 7-0, while the nightcap was a more contested game but eventually went 8-6 to the Toss Ups.
Court 5…. The fireworks definately were on display as the Somebodies and Grasshoppers combined for 61 runs in their meeting. Game 1 saw the Somebodies score 5 runs in the 6th to take it 18-13. On the flipside the Grasshoppers returned the favor scoring in every inning on their way to a 17-13 victory. The win moves the Grasshoppers into a first place tie with the Toss Ups in the American Division.
Court 6…. The Impossibles surprised some around the league as they took both games from the previous first place Dynamites, 4-3 and 9-8. Both games had chances for a Dynamites rally but in the end the Impossibles walked off with the spoils and create a log jam in the American Division standings with their 2-2 record.
