This week marked the halfway mark of the BBBL South Fall season and just 1 week left in Divisional play before our ‘crossover’ schedule begins after the bye week. Let’s get to the action…..
BB Busters vs Dynamites…The high octane Dynamites were shooting blanks in Game 1 as the BB Busters took advantage and handed them their first loss of the season, Busters win 4-1. The Busters tried to keep it close in Game 2, but the Dynamites scored in every inning on their way to a 10-6 victory to get the split.
Bag Ladies vs Firecrackers…The Firecrackers blanked our beloved Bag Ladies 6-0 in the opener with the Ladies unable to get anything going. Game 2 saw the Bag Ladies come alive and surprise the National co-leaders 8-7 thanks to a 3 run rally in the bottom of the 6th inning.
WS Express vs BB Burners…Despite falling behind 4-2 early in Game 1, the Express bounce back and grab the opening game 8-5 over the Burners. The late game saw nothing happen until the top of the 6th with the BB Burners finally bringing 2 runs across and taking a 2-0 win.
Grasshoppers vs Toss Ups…The American leading Grasshoppers continue their winning ways sweeping the defending champs. Game 1 saw the Grasshoppers use the middle innings to play catch up before pulling ahead and holding on for a 7-5 victory. The Toss Ups struck early and often in Game 2 just to see the game slip away, Grasshoppers rally and win 12-11 and get the nod for ‘Game Of The Week’.
Patriots vs Somebodies…This matchup had fireworks. The surprising Patriots move into second place in the American by blasting the Somebodies 18-9 which featured a 10 run mercy rule in Game 1. Game 2 had both teams show their power and despite a 4 run 6th inning rally by the Patriots, the Somebodies held on 17-16 for a well deserved split.
Lightning vs Pioneers…Well now, guess who has a 3 game winning streak??? After being the last team in the BBBL to win a game, the Pioneers grounded the Lightning 8-3 and 7-3 sweeping the series, extend their win streak to 3 and climb into 5th place. The Lightning are struggling as of late with runs, but they will make some noise moving forward.
