This past weekend Team Sinister lost a beloved member of their softball family, Team Mangager Brian Basierbe. Everyone at the stadium stood up to honor the great life and contributions that Basierbe had on the softball community with a moment of Silence before the game. Brett Helmer lead off the the game with a stand up double and eventually got across the plate with a RBI fly-out to center by Wegman. Combat stayed strong in the field, not allowing Sinister to score any runs.
Combat returned to the plate with their bats hot. They strung together a series of hits, including 2 homeruns by Stephens and Wegman scoring 8 runs off 8 hits giving Comabt a 9-0 lead. Sinsister, not able to find a hole, ended the inning with no runs on the board. Beggs came up to bat for Combat and hit a beautiful shot into left field only to find the left fielder, Schulte, leapping up into the air having a true” ESPN Top 10 Plays” moment robbing Beggs of his homerun.
Sinister finally gets on the board in bottom of 4 when Pease leads off with a double, then scores off of Aleksandrowic’s triple. Kull then flys out to center field for an RBI to score Aleksandrowic to get Sinister their second run of the game. The momentum doesn’t last long for Sinsiter, while Combat got their bats alive again getting 11 runs in the top of the 6th inning giving them a 24-2 lead. Team Combat run rules Sinister in the 6th 24-2
