Beaver Results, July 16-17, 2005

Posted by John D'Angelo on Jul 24 2005 at 05:00PM PDT

In Saturday's first game at the Beaver Bash, a sluggish Hurricane start resulted in a 5-2 loss to Power (Hanlon).  Pool game #2 was a nine-hit Hurricane performance, an 8-2 win over the Fairview Flames.  Hurricane game #3 was a 13-hit attack on the Washington Wildfire for a 6-1 victory.  Another Hurricane first-place pool finish!  

Elimination round:  A 12-hit Hurricane performance allowed a seventh-inning comeback to tie the Vipers, but the Hurricane gave up one run to the Vipers as the rain-soaked ball affected play at the start of the international tiebreaker. 

Then the rain stopped for the Hurricane batters - giving a lift to the Viper defense.  As the bases were loaded with Hurricane runners, the final out of the game came at home on a tag-up scoring attempt.  Final score:  Vipers 4, Hurricane 3. 

2 wins vs. 2 losses left the team disappointed, but the Hurricane bats came alive - a fine hitting performance to go along with the tough Hurricane defense!
