Game 4 - 8:00 a.m. vs Woodland Hitting Club, Florida
Score - Florida 23 - Huff & Puff's 19
The first game of the day saw the H & Ps up against a very good hitting team but stuck with them the whole way except for the open inning where we came up short . The outfielders produced some very good defensive work against a tough sun. Some good hitting by Dave Shauf with a double driving in two runs and an inside the park homer for Keith. Gord D had a three run triple with Rod and Gord Nutley both having big RBI hits as well.
Our first playoff game saw us playing the Stingers again and we had our offence going. Honourable mention to the defence as well turning two double plays.
Game 6 - 10:30 a.m. vs Edmonton White Socks
Score - White Sox 19 - Huff & Puffs 12
Our third game of the day all back to back saw the H & Ps playing well but starting to feel the heat. Gord D had two triples with 5 RBIs and a triple to Lutz P as well. Some good fielding from Gord N. A good effort by the boys but the Sox are a real good hitting team that wore us down.
That is it for Mesquite this year and will now move to St George for the games. Stay tuned.
