LOTS OF SCORING IN SOFTBALL ACTION

Innovative Communications Corp. beat Cruise Ship Excursions 9-2 in the Government and Industrial Co-ed Slowpitch Softball League Monday night while Tropical/Crowley Shipping blasted Senate 15-8.
In the first game of the evening ICC pitcher Bernard Douglas allowed Cruise Ship Excursions to just five hits. Ian Byrne had two of them. However, Cruise Ship Excursions pitcher Mike Dunston gave up ten hits. Antonio Lewis and Athniel "Bobby" Thomas had two hits each to lead their team to victory.
In the nightcap, the Senate Sluggers jumped out to a three-run lead but the Tropical/Crowley Shipping Shipwreckers answered with three runs of their own in the bottom of the first inning. Fernando Leger hit a two-run homerun for the Shipwreckers.
The game was a seesaw contest as the Shipwreckers tied the game at six in the third inning. The Sluggers took an 8-6 lead after batting in the top of the fifth inning. However, the Shipwreckers blew the game open with seven runs in the bottom of the inning.
Both teams hit the ball well as they combined for 27 hits. Vancito Hedrington, Michelle Vanterpool, Maurice Foy and Kenneth "Cusu" Joseph each had two hits for the Sluggers. Sandino Brito and Wayne Creque had three and two hits respectively for the Shipwreckers.
Mario Del La Cruz got the win for the Shipwreckers as Cecil Farrel absorbed the lost.
