I think I can answer one question. Otis made a great run on a ball in Centerfield and caught it on his shoestrings and then threw Dave peirce out at second for a double play. If that ball drops could have been a different outcome. (Green vs Red)

Larry,

The game was an excellent game between two equally good teams. Glenn Coombs pitched out of trouble inning after inning . Glen had trouble with his control but, managed to work out of at least two bases loaded jams with one run scoring . Bo McMinn came in and pitched good as usual but, allowed an inside the park homerun to Corey Pratt in the bottom of the sixth inning. This run turned out to be the winning run,The score was 4-1 going into the top of the seventh inning .The Blue team scored 2 runs in the top of the seventh inning to come within one run of tying the game . The game was well played and low- scoring which is unusual for the HDL.

Jodie Wolfe pitched an outstanding game and allowed only one run until the top of the seventh inning and the Blue team staged a big comeback . Jodie struck out Jeff Combs for the last out of a great hard fought game. Both teams played good defense when they needed to. This series between the Blue and Green teams is now tied at 2-2 .
