Hounds Win Again

For the third game of the season, it was back to Riverbank State Park, site of our heart-breaking playoff loss last season. Our opponents were a team called Cheetahs, and the weather was gorgeous. We got an ump who looked a lot like Patrick Swayze, and except for one blown call at home plate, he did a pretty good job.
We jumped out to an 11-0 lead in the first couple of innings, and the result was never really in doubt after that. The offense did what it had to do, although we were helped by some Cheetah miscues. Cindy was again at the forefront going 2 for 3. Juiena went 3 for 4 and scored 3 runs. Mega hit a solo HR, George got a couple of HRs that were pure folly. We had a lot of fun on the basepaths.
Margaret was starting pitcher and she pitched a gem despite the other team's attempts to rattle her by knocking her over on first base. The defense behind her was solid. In the middle innings we gave up some runs, but we also added to our own tally. Overall, we played well and were able to impose our will. Final score Hounds 15, Cheetahs 7.
*Still No Ruling from the League on Game 2. As soon as a ruling comes down, I'll post it on the site.
