5/21 Lee Hardware vs. Lenox Police - WIN 8-6 - What a game! After running out to a 6-0 lead thru three innings, some mental errors let Lenox back into the game (6 errors in the 4th&5th). The kids showed heart in the 6th & 7th to shut Lenox down. With the scored tied in the bottom of the 6th, Noah Johnson made a heads up play from left field. As the throw on a steal went past 3rd, the runner stayed up and rounded towards home.

In the 7th, Joe Free hussled out a bunt and made it to 3rd on 2 Lenox errors. He then scored the go ahead run.After his hit, Preston Webb added the insurance run on a double by Heamon.
