In a game of two teams tied for second place in the league, Oakwood Red used a five-run 6th inning to beat White Stone by a score of 16-11. The lost ended the Leviathan winning streak at four games. Oakwood jumped out to an early 5-0 lead in the 1st inning, as their first two hitters hit homers to left field. White Stone used back-to-back homers in the 3rd to tie the game at 6. Josh Watson got things going with a grand slam—a towering homerun to left field. Jake Andrus followed that up with a solo homer to left. The score was actually tied 10-10 after the top of the 5th, but then both teams added a run and then Red tallied 5 big runs in the bottom of the 6th and never looked back. It was a hard fought game for both teams, and White Stone will be looking for redemption if they meet Red in the league playoffs.
The defense was solid for White Stone—only make a handful of errors, and again turning a double-play. The Leviathan were led offensively by: Josh Watson (2 hits, BB, 2runs, 4rbi, Grand Slam HR), Jake Andrus (3 hits, double, solo HR, 2runs, 3rbi), Brad Fraser (2 hits, 2runs, rbi), and Tigh Kemnitz (2 hits, double, rbi).
