Kim’s Barrel Inn (2-2) 14 Team BAMF (0-3) 10.
Note: Game ended after six innings due to the time limit.
Kim’s Barrel Inn: Three hits: Jake Mortimer. Two hits: Kassie McGettigan, Megan Wiczek, Laura Bauer, Jack Mortimer, Dalton Wriedt.

Team BAMF: Three hits: Graham Edwardson. Two hits: Kerry Bretl, Steve Stroik, Christopher Ashland, Jake Bailey, Miranda Domask.
Doubles: Graham Edwardson, Lakyn Lloyd.
Triples: Graham Edwardson.
Home Runs: Graham Edwardson.
Note: Laura Bauer of KBI got a bump on her leg from sliding into third. The official scorer sold her an ice cube for a buck to help keep the swelling down.
Another Note: Kim’s Barrel Inn was short one girl player. Ordinarily, that spot in the batting order would then be an automatic out. However, Steve Stroik of BAMF brought his son Caleb to the game, and the teams agreed to let him play. Caleb played centerfield the entire game for KBI. At the plate, Caleb had a single, was safe on a fielder’s choice, and scored two runs. Caleb was voted “Player of the Week”.

Triples: Pat Scheele.
Home Runs: None.
Note: The Swats led 13-12 with Precision coming to bat in the bottom of the seventh. Bobby Sullivan led off with a double, Melissa Dombrowski moved him over to third, and Mike Mancl followed with the game-winning inside-the-park homer to end the epic battle.
Note: Christopher Ashland took some game photos for the Metro Wire.
