Hot weather and hot play dominates ECSA week
Hot weather and hot play dominates ECSA week
by Nick Bowen - Special to the SGN The weather got hot and turned up the heat in both open C and D Emerald City Softball Association divisional races this week. All four divisions saw action under sunny skies that brought out the fans and made for a great day of ball at North SeaTac Park, our home fields for the last four years.

On the field, in a game that came down to the final at-bat, the Maulers took a game from the Animals. In a defensive struggle, the lead changed hands several times in the game. The Maulers came to bat in the bottom of the last inning down two runs, but had just enough hitting to push three runs across, and win by a final of 8-7. The Maulers' second game was close as well, but they managed to hold on and beat the Alley Cats 12-10 to claim a share of the divisional lead. The idle Bulldogs and the Maulers have identical 9 - 2 records, having completed the round robin portion of the schedule and heading into bracket play.

The D division saw some great games as well. The unbeaten Rockets and Saints both saw action. The Saints started their day against the Drillers who had only one loss. The Drillers battled, but the Saints came out on top by scoring in the bottom of the last inning to take the game by a final of 13-12. The Saints then played the Rockets with both teams entering the game unbeaten. In a tight, well-played game, the Rockets prevailed to hand the Saints their first loss of the season by a final of 11-9.

Following that game the Rockets played the Drillers who, fresh off their loss to the Saints, rallied and showed some great offense to win the game and hand the Rockets their first loss by a final of 16-12. The Atomic also faced some tough competition from the surprising Wolves, who kept the game close through four innings, but saw the Atomic pull away late and notch a win with a five-run margin, 11-6.

The Atomic then took care of the Boys Next Door, to run their record to 10 wins and one loss. The Saints Rockets and Atomic all have a share of the lead with identical 10 - 1 records with one more week of round robin play in the division before heading to bracket play. The World Series "automatic berth" is likely to come down to the final week of play for these teams!

The open B division saw the Pilots extend their divisional lead with wins against both the Shock and the Vendetta. The Pilots vs. Shock game was a 13-12 affair and featured some great defense from both teams, while the Pilots managed an easier win vs. the Vendetta by a final of 12-9.
