The men's softball league was back in action on Tuesday, Sept. 12 for their second week of games. The runs kept flying as most of the games ended in blowouts.
Futures started the night at Morgan field by mashing their way past Extreme Accessories. Futures smacked in four home runs, including dingers from Brendan Wild and Nick Woolsey on their way to a 22-9 victory. Extreme Accessories came back with a lot of pop in their second game against Dirty MO Posse. They had three homers in the third inning from Dalton Friend, Brett Gresham and Tim Gamblin, before adding a fourth by Aaron Gideon in the fifth on their way to a 19-10 win.
Dirty MO Posse was buried by the home run ball all night, as the Naturals knocked three balls over the wall against them. The Naturals cruised to an 11-1 win thanks to those three home runs and a five run third inning.
The Naturals had a much tougher time in other game on Tuesday when they faced off against Line 2 Line. The Naturals opened things up with a dominant first inning where they knocked in eight runs after a two-run bottom of the first by Line 2 Line. They added to that lead with a pair of runs in the second to build a 10-2 lead. After trading a few runs, the Naturals pushed their lead to 15-4 in the fifth inning, but after that, Line 2 Line kicked it into overdrive. They scored 12 runs in the sixth inning for a come from behind 16-15 win.
The second game on the second field of games was between On the Run and Huffman Lawn. On the Run had the early advantage with a 5-0 lead through the first three innings.
