Game 1: Hounds win 5–1

It was a great night for softball as the Hounds took the field for the first time ever. There was some confusion getting the lineup together, but everything eventually worked out. We played a team called Who's On First, and when one of their sluggers launched a ball over the right field wall, it looked like it would be a long night. Thankfully though, that only counted as a ground rule double as per the rules of the field.

We fell behind 1–0 early and it stayed that way for a couple of innings. Then the bats came alive, with Mega, Nate, and Danny being at the heart of the rally. Eventually we put 5 on the board and the pitching and defense took care of the rest. Margaret pitched a gem, throwing nary a bad pitch. Juiena dazzled with her glove, you could literally hear the wind being knocked out of our opponents on one double play she turned. The game went by really quickly and we played all 7 innings. The final result: a 5–1 victory for the Hounds in the all–important first game.
