Despite the absence of Captain Chris, Josie and Nadine the Pirates were able to put together an impressive display to smash the Tigers 23-0 at the end of the 5th innings. We were able to welcome back Bola after 4 weeks following his injury at the first tournament of the season and also Miya from the Parrots was able to play up a division as we were a few girls short (for a change).
It’s fair to say that the Tigers were more of a recreational work team but they did have some decent fielders and an excellent short stop as Alice found out when he made a great diving catch off her line line. Batting wise just about everyone hit over 0.60 during the game with Shaz riding high on 1000 (2 hits, 2 walks) and Sohan, Shorty and Lucy on 0.8. Unlike our performance against the Heat our fielding was also much more cohesive and organised as shown by a complete shut out! Let’s hope we can keep this up against the Cubs!
MVP: Lucy (4 runs, 2 RBIs, 0.8)
Defensive award: Gids (shut out and amazing throw to first)
