Interdivision Play Begins for ECSA
Interdivision Play Begins for ECSA
by Nick Bowen - Special to the SGN The Emerald City Softball Association Open C division finished their round robin schedule last week, and the division was split into upper and lower. The upper C divisional teams are now playing against the B division squads, in games that may determine divisional champs for both B and C divisions. The lower C division teams are still in action as well, as all teams continue to slug it out in hopes of representing Seattle at the Gay World Series hosted right here in Seattle in late August!

Interdivision action started early this weekend with the first-place B division Pilots taking on the first place C division Maulers. The first week of interdivisional play had the B division come out on top of every contest. In a lopsided affair, the Pilots showed their power at the plate and backed it up with a stingy defense to take the game by a final of 21 to 2. The second-place Bulldogs fared a little better but also lost to the Pilots 23 to 11. The B division Shock also beat both their C division opponents, taking the Thrusters with a final score of 18 to 6 and beating the Sin 16 to 6. The Vendetta ran away with their first game vs. the Sin as they racked up 25 runs to the Sin's 7. The closest game of the day came when the Vendetta met up with a tough Maulers squad, and came away with a three-run victory by a final of 9 to 6.

In all C division action, the Animals took on the Poco and played some of their best ball to date. Dave D. of the Animals had a standout performance as he went 3 for 4 at the plate and made several great plays at first base, including an inning-ending unassisted double-play to end a Thrusters rally. Dan C. of the Animals chipped in at the plate as well, going 4 for 4 and helping the Animals to an 18 to 11 victory. The Bulldogs and Thrusters played a tight game that saw the Thrusters take the game 9 to 8, and pull into a tie in the standing with the Bulldogs with identical 9-4 overall records.

The D division saw all the top teams in action against one another as they completed the round robin portion of the schedule. The day started with the Atomic, Rockets and Saints all with a share of the division lead with 10 wins and just one loss each. In the first D division game of the day the Atomic squared off against the Rockets and played fantastic defense and had all the timely hitting they needed to win by a final of 10 to 1. They followed that game up in their second game of the day against the Saints and, in a well played defensive game, the Atomic won 7 to 5, running their record to 12-1, and alone in the top spot in the division heading to bracket play next this coming Sunday.

The Rockets won their second game vs. the Throttle 13 to 3, to finish the day 11-2. The Drillers won their two games against the Rebels and the Rouges to stay with Rockets at 11-2 overall. The Saints needed a victory over the Wolves to keep a share of the second spot in the division, but, in an upset, lost to a hard-hitting Wolves squad 15 to 7 to slide into fourth place with a 10-3 record. The Buzz continued their winning ways with two wins on the day to run their record to 9-4 and fifth place overall in the division.
