Wide Construction / TD Custom Construction: 9-4-1 in 2004, 2nd place
team. We lost twice to them.
CIT: 3-8-2 in 2004, last place team, we split with them.
23-7. We killed them with 10 runs in the
bottom of the 5th inning. We hit great - singles all night long and
even mixed in the occasional homer and warning tracking shots. Our
defense was solid and we turned a couple double plays. Our pitching
was terrific - nice work Brian and Jupe! It made all the difference
at the plate.
W 20-8. This was a very back and forth game, low scoring up to the 8th inning. In the 8th, we padded the score with 12 runs and won by mercy rule.

Meats: 7-5-1 in 2004, 4th place team, we beat them and tied them.
Power Hour: new team.
11-22. We we up 11-7 in the 5th, but our hitting and defense went
sour and they poured in on in the 9th inning to score 11 and made some
great defensive plays.
W 26-6. This one was never in question. They had very poor pitching, which resulted in poor hitting. They also only had 3 outfielders, which didn't help their situation. They struggled in the field.

Family Chiropractic: 10-3-1 in 2004, 1st place team, we lost both times.
Detlefsen Insurance: 4-9 in 2004, 6th place team, we split with them.
14-10. We only had 8 guys and started out the first inning by
shutting them down and hitting a string of singles to score 6. That
set the tone of the game. We played solid defense and hit singles
all night long. We gave up 3 runs in the 9th inning and game ended
14-10. The defending champs started complaining about the pitches
and were out of their element.
W 16-3. Nash showed up for game 2 and we started hitting the ball deep. Once again we played great defense, but our hitting was a mix of singles and long balls.

Edge Countertops: 4-9 in 2004, 7th place team, we split with them.
They can really hit the ball well.
CIT: 1 lefty hits fly balls to RF. Tall thin SS slaps the ball to RF. One tall guy in all black hit a deep foul to LF and everyone else hit short. They gave us the RF line all night.
18-7. This team didn't hit the ball very deep but they had speed on
the bases. A few slides for no reason - even one head first into
third. Their bigger 1B hit everything shallow and they had a couple
lefties. We hit a ton of singles and they couldn't do anything about
it. They tried playing short and we would burn them deep.
W 21-5. Very bad defense on this team. They gave us about 8-10 bases on error. 1-2 guys who could hit the ball long and the rest were weak grounders and shallow fly balls. Gave us the right field line all night. Their ringers from the first time we played them were not playing (SS, tallest guy).

Hour: poor pitching, poor fielding and struggle at the plate. Only
one guy hit deep - everything else on the ground or shallow
outfield. SS struggled quite a bit in the field.
Metro Wide Construction / TD Custom Construction: Nash is on this team. He likes to hit deep and likes to try the right side. #33 hits hard line shots to LF. Quite a few guys could hit deep.
15-13. We had a 6 run comeback in the 8th inning. They
only had 3 outfielders. They hit almost everything to the left side.
They had 1 lefty who hit short weak stuff to RF. We had a little
trouble in the field and also didn't string together enough singles
until the 8th inning. Their outfielders were not that quick and
didn't steal too many from us. Tom hit his first over the fence shot
of the year.
L 13-14. They wanted it more than we did - that was sure. We got a couple calls to go our way and it only made them more angry. They all hit the ball really well - hard line drives. They got one homer on the night. They played 5 infielders and that worked a little better than their strategy last time. Their 3B was great, but the middle three guys struggled with the grounders. But playing 5 infielders didn't hurt their outfield much because they were quick and didn't make any errors. We had a 3 run comeback in the 9th, but it wasn't enough.

Insurance: They didn't hit very many deep balls. They had one
guy with a white hat who loved to pull the ball down the 3B line.
They struggled at the plate.
Ingebretsen's Meats: everyone but the older 2B can hit the ball deep. 1 slow lefty plays 1B. Muscle shirt outfield, tallest outfield and older bald guy outfield all can hit homers to both sides. Orange shirt outfielder likes to go opposite field. Good range at SS - likes to hit back up the middle.
18-5. We put together a few nice inning at the plate and basically
played solid defense. They had trouble at the plate. They had
a few strike outs and quite a few pop outs. We turned 3 double
L 7-12. The game was tied 7-7 for about 4 innings. They got 5 runs in the 8th inning with 2 homers. They hit the ball really well. They had about 5-6 guys who could get to the fence. 2 lefties. Their outfield didn't miss anything and their SS had a great game. We hit too many pop ups - especially to the right side. We were in the one, but we just couldn't answer when they got their big inning.

Edge Countertops: like to run the bases hard and a few guys will dive head
first even without a play. 2 lefties. Bigger 1B hits shallow
Burnsville Family Chiropractic: struggled with pitches, they couldn't pull it together once we got an early lead.
