    Having finished first in regular season play, the GETdetroitsports.com
softballers earned a bye into the playoff semi-finals.


PLAYOFF SEMIS:

    The Gds.com team advanced by beating TLC 12-8 in a tight contest.
    Our lads led most of the way.  After taking a 2-0/B-1st lead the game
was tied 4-all by the Mid-4th.  Our heroes staged a 4-R/B-4th but TLC came
close again with a 3-R/T-5th that made it 8-7.  The difference proved to be
a 4-R/B-6th for a 12-7 bulge before the enemy scored once in their last at-bat
and a double play ended the game.
    Erik Schneider and Mike Newcomb both went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles.
MGR Erik had 5-RBI & 2-R while Nuke scored once with 3-RBI.

PLAYOFF FINAL:

    Our guys picked the absolute worst time to have our worse defensive game
of the year, committing 11 fielding errors plus a number of other miscues and
handing the playoff title to Dewalt 22-20 in a 6-INN time limit finale.
    The defensive and baserunning gaffes prevented our taking advantage of
a season-high 15 walks issued by the rival pitcher and we stranded an unlucky
13 men on base.
    The giveaway ended a streak of three consecutive spring/summer league
playoff championships in Sterling Hgts. for the GETdetroitsports.com team.
    After taking a 10-1 lead by the end of the 2nd-INN and with mercy on our
minds, eight errors gave Dewalt a 10-R/T-3rd.  The game stayed fairly close
the rest of the way and a 3-R/B-5th snapped a tie to put Gds.com on top
again 17-14.  However, two more errors in a disjointed T-6th helped Dewalt
score eight more runs.  Our B-6th response as the clock ran out only produced
3-R for the 22-20 final.
    Brandon Chappell and Kevin Vanderbeke both went 3-for-4 with Kev scoring
twice and collecting 3-RBI while BC had a double, a walk, 4-R & 2-RBI.  Mike
Newcomb was 3-for-5 with 1-R & 4-RBI.  Greg Hoobler totaled 3-RBI.

Dewalt                      22-19-3, 5-LOB.....{6-INN, T-Limit}
