The buzz in the Bumblebee dugout was that the WebAssign Blue Dolphins’ hitting and fielding was amazing. Sarah Freeman had two strong hits and an unassisted out at third playing shortstop. Cami Restagno also had two big hits and, while playing pitcher in the second inning, saw a lot of direct action that required attention and skill. The mighty Blue Dolphins played strong and played well.

The Angels showed the true meaning of teamwork and hustle and everyone had a great game!

Alexis Cantley, Chloe McMann Chapman and Katie Cheung all had hits, but the pitching from the Royal Dragons did not allow more runs.
Coast Guard Chiefs Firecrackers 3, Harbor Bay Realty Blue Dynamite 2
A last minute rally wasn’t enough to put the Blue Dynamite on top in this well-matched game. The Firecrackers led 3-0 going into the last inning, when the Blue Dynamite decided it was time to get serious. Elizabeth Ekern and Katherine Legg got the rally going with back-to-back singles and were batted in by Lauren Gaughan and Madeline Roorda. Defensively, the Dynamite were impressive, with Fiona Rogers and Sydney Watt making fantastic catches for the out.

Casey Stoddard had three amazing plays; she caught a fly ball then threw to first base for a double play. As catcher, Casey threw out two Black Magic players as they were trying to steal, once at second base and once at third base. Bea Levy had an impressive fifth inning, striking out all three batters. In an overall great defensive game by both teams, pitchers Mariah Moore, Sophia and Mira Piamonte offered nine combined strikeouts between five fantastic defensive plays, one of which was a pick-off of an attempted steal from second, with the runner thrown out by catcher Lauren Lum at third. Amy Grimm and Cheyanne Rios each drove in an RBI.
Dr. Johnson and Jolley Royal Dragons 3, Citizen Canine Black Magic 0

The Alameda Orthopedic & Sports Therapy Green Energy 9, Coast Guard Cutter Aspen Blue Nose Pit Bulls 3
The Green Energy was on fire today. Kimble Helms’ first inning double set up Lizzy Avery’s RBI triple. In the second, Naomi Ladenburg got things started with a lead-off walk, her first of three.

Law Office of Paul Mahler/McDonald’s Shoreline Hot Ice 15, Piedmont Titans 1
The Hot Ice started off by putting four runs on the board. Tatiana Kelly smacked a ball out to left field for her first home run of the season. Samantha Shaffer had a double play followed by a tremendous throw down from Meida Tautalatasi to catcher Sally Parsons, holding the Titans to one run and end the inning. Dominique Barrs, Tatiana Kelly, Meida Tautalatasi and Valerie Sheridan offered great pitching, with a total of seven strikeouts.
Winzler & Kelly Kryptonite 5, Linda Avery Ph.D. Flaming Cheetos 0
The Flames repeatedly got runners to third, but great Kryptonite defense prevented them from scoring. The Flames also played outstanding defense, with Mikayla Wong throwing out a runner at third from center field, a great catch in right field by Hannah George, and Jackie Smith ending the sixth inning by catching a fly in right field and doubling off the runner at first. Lily Wilmot pitched a terrific game, with six strikeouts and four scoreless innings.
Piedmont Semi-Aggressive Dinosaurs 12, Linda Avery Ph.D. Flaming Cheetos 1
The Flames were overmatched by Piedmont’s 12U tournament team in Rec League play, despite a strong team effort. Victoria Avery belted a triple and scored, but the Dinos sealed off the plate after that. Helen Montell-Weiland stole a pair of bases after working a walk, and Lily Wilmot and Maura Willow pulled off a perfect double steal – all sadly for naught.
