Game 3: Hounds lose 17–14, 1st loss of the season

Back at Colonel Charles Young field for Game 3, the Hounds took on Nice Assets. This would be the Hounds' first game as the "home" team. Unfortunately, things did not go that well. Right from the 1st inning, Nice Assets jumped out to a big lead. The Hounds were just not playing very well defensively and their bats were sleeping. Give credit to Nice Assets too, who had a well–rounded team. In the 3rd inning, the score was 12–1, and it looked like this game would be a whitewash.

Then the Hounds came alive. Mounting a comeback of epic proportions, the team rallied to make it a 3–run game with the tying run at the plate and two outs in the bottom of the last inning. Unfortunately, that would be as far as it goes as a fly out to right ended the game and dashed the Hounds' hopes of winning. The team was left wondering what might have been had they only played better in the early innings. Final result: Hounds lose 17–14.
