Snappy title, eh?
BOMBERS - 19 Renegades - 1
BOMBERS - 19 Renegades - 8
We took care of business and positioned ourselves as we needed for the round robin seeding tournament next week. We move to 9 and 5, fourth place, which means we will play the one-two-three teams. Taking two, and having one other thing fall into place, will move us into second place and give us a first-round bye in the playoffs.
The Renegades are always fun to play. Win or lose, they comport themselves with class. They beat us in the playoffs in 2009, but lost a whole bunch of their players the following year, due to many of them having to transfer to another city with their jobs, and have been rebuilding since then. Dwayne Dahlbach, their coach, is an erudite gentleman and plays the game the right way.
We jumped on top with seven runs in the first inning of game one and never looked back. In game two, the Renegades held a 5 - 2 lead going into the third, but the Bombers scored 13 runs in the third and that was that for all intents and purposes.
And that's all for today. Back to work now, and I'll try to give you something more later in the week. It may be softball-related or it may not. You'll just have to take your chances. Sorry!
Soon, but with more better stuff is a crap shoot.
