On Saturday, the Softballers completed the Twitter Baseball gauntlet of a playoff tree. There were three Twitter Baseball playoff games, and the Softballers won them all.
After losing their regular season finale to the Mongos, falling to third place in the final standings, they immediately had to play the fourth place Bros in the 3/4 seed playoff game. The Softballers won to advance to the stadium game.
On Championship Saturday, the Softballers capitalized on Schmoozer miscues to take an early 3-0 lead in the top of the first, leading to a comfortable 11-1 victory.
In a Championship game that will not be soon forgotten, the Softballers and Mongos traded zeros off the backs of the ace starters Angelo Rodriguez and Scott Schachter before the Softballers broke the ice with an unearned run in the 5th inning. The Softballers extended their lead to 4-0 in the top of the 7th, with the Mongos gaining a run back in the bottom of the 7th, followed by a 3-run rally in the bottom of the eighth. Lenny Neslin and Derron Simpson traded zeroes in the 9th, 10th and 11th before the Softballers scored four runs in the top of the 12th, the deciding runs in a 8-4 victory.
One hell of a way to end one hell of a season.
We hope we see you for fall ball!
