On a near-perfect morning, sunny and not too warm, there were two sweeps and one split. PJ’s Sports took two from the Eagles to take sole possession of first place. Senior Moments beat the CoStars by three with the hammer in reserve, and led 12-4 after 4 1/2 innings in the second game. CS scored nine runs over the next two innings and came into the hammer down 17-13. They loaded the bases with no outs, but the SM defense held, and CS scored none.
The handicaps finally came into play, as the Hawks nipped Athletic House in the opener. AH, down 10 entering the 7th, scored eight to make it close, then blitzed the Hawks in six innings with a 5-run 6th.

On the first very warm day of the season, the handicaps again played little or no role, but in very different fashion. Senior Moments blitzed Athletic House before they could get untracked, and AH roared back in the second game, scoring eight in the upper 7th to ice the game.
PJ’s Sports made quick work of the CoStars in the opener, but the CoStars, scoring in every inning, brought a 10-run lead to the 7th. PJ’s scored five, but CoStars SS Digger Chapman made an amazing play, corraling a ball that hit the 2B bag and bounced almost in his face for the final out.
The Hawks completed the only sweep, which included the only close game all morning.

AH and PJ’s both brushed aside the handicappped innings and made short work of their opponents.
The Hawks posted four out of five 4-run innings to lead the CoStars 16-6, then added three insurance runs in the upper 7th. But in the second game, a lunging catch by 3B Ed Macias and a leaping catch by SS Digger Chapman, both on hard line drives, resulted in inning-killing double plays as the CoStars came back to earn the split.Athletic House 18, Eagles 6 (5 in.)
