Softball dog days

Posted: Tuesday, May 18, 2010

There may have been some sore muscles following the One-Pitch Softball Tournament last weekend, but that didn't stop anybody from getting back out on the diamond.

As usual, there were many really close games.

Men's C Division: Taku Oil picked up where they left off last season with a 22-6 drilling of the SE Mine Supply Miners, while the Parts Plus ratcheted it up on the Timberwolves 17-9. The SE Miners were also able to pull off an 8-7 victory over the Timberwolves, while Team Imperial got by Parts Plus 17-14 in a high-scoring affair.

Men's D/E Division: The Rounders, namesakes of the first era of softball players, shellacked the Home Depot 22-3, and also knocked Kappler Computers out with an 18-7 drubbing. Home Depot did manage a weekly split, though, with an 11-8 victory over the Island Pubsters. It was not the week of the Pubsters, as K&L Distributors poured it on the Island Pub 11-4. Not to be outdone, Kappler Computer dispersed of K&L Distributors 18-12.

Men's F Division: The James Gang held up Lynden Transport 20-12, but then Lynden came back and blew away FilCom 21-2. The First National Caps put two wins in the bank with a 17-3 drubbing of Double Ugly. They then pulled off a 9-8 squeaker over the Mudstingers before the Mudstingers beat the Northern Hot Spots 9-7 in another close game. The UAS Flukes dropped Haight Pak Unicorns 15-10, but got burned by the Northern Hot Spots 17-15.

Women's C Division: The bars were battling this week, and Team Imperial's women poured it on Pat's Douglas Inn (Louie's) 10-5, but the women from Louie's came back to wipe out the ladies from GW Teal 10-4. It was a bruising week for GW Teal as Sticks N Stones rocked them in a 15-13 struggle. Sticks N Stones made it a perfect twofer as they also defeated the Lynden Ladies 12-4 and stayed at the top of the leader board. But not to be outdone, those understudies of swing, The Replacements, won the weekly Ping of the Bat Award with a 29-4 lambasting of the Lynden Ladies, and they followed with an 11-10 win over the Imperial Women.

Women's D Division: The First National Angels wrestled past the T & ★ Sandbar LunaChicks 10-7, but even divine intervention couldn't stand up to higher education as the UAS Women brought the Angels back to Earth 12-3. UAS finished up the commencement night on top of the standings, knocking the LunaChicks out of their orbit 18-12. Sunny Side Up beat up the Merchant's Wharf 11-1, but lost 10-9 to the Parts Plus Women in an extra-innings battle. Chicks with Sticks got through the first week unscathed, shopping Merchant's Wharf 6-2 and crushing the Parts Plus Women 12-3.

Coed D Division: Wee Fishies Shoppe got behind the eight ball as Kappler Computers downed them 10-8. Nizich Dental got the best of them as well with a 9-8 victory.

Coed E Division: Auke Bay Electric Wired took down Team America 10-7, and they shocked Off the Cuff 12-6. And, in an evening finale, Off the Cuff restrained the Fam Dams 16-15. In an earlier duel of titans, Team America took out the AML Hooliguns 9-5.

Coed F North Division: In the Northern part of the Division, Valley Liquor Crown Royals got fumigated by HAZ GAS 22-4. Later, HAZ GAS ran out of just that when an 11-run, last-inning rally fell short of State Farm's 13 run lead in a 13-11 game. The Party Fouls party was crashed by the Bad News Bears 16-3, and were then stung by the Killer Bees in a 12-3 loss. Earlier, the Killer Bees took it out on State Farm 18-4.

Coed F South Division: In the southern hemisphere of the F Division world, T&H Mad Batters were downed by Alaska Towing 8-7, while Alaska Marine Trucking greased Reliable Oil 13-2. It wasn't a hurricane, but SeaBreeze wafted past the Pirates' sails 5-4, while Air Excursion was taken out 7-4 by Willis-Hayward State Farm Insurance.

Coed G Division: In the biggest division, ASEA Local 52 Summertime Fun was drubbed by Bartlett Too by a score of 17-7, and then in the hospital showdown, Bartlett Too sent Bartlett Bruisers home with a 25-5 loss.
