Championship game: Re-Entry vs. Los Gigantes boxscore

Re-Entry 400431012
Los Gigantes 030100913

For 6 1/2 innings, Re-Entry out-played and out-hustled the undefeated Los Giagntes, building a 12--4 lead going into the bottom of the seventh inning. But, in a thrilling (for Los Gigantes) and nightmarish (for Re-Entry) final inning, Los Gigantes found their strokes, and stormed back with a nine run rally to eke out a victory and seize the championship and the T-shirts. Normally, in such circumstances, the losing team folds under pressure. Not so today. Re-Entry played a superb game both on offense and on defense. The latter did not falter in that fateful seventh inning. Instead, Los Gigantes came up clutch with solid line drives and a number of flares that dropped in between the infield and outfield. All we can do is tip our caps to them for sustaining their impressive season ending drive.

In retrospect, it was a fabulous playoff run, with the Re-Entry team playing nearly flawless softball, only to come up short at the very end against an inspired opponent. Nevertheless, the nucleus is there for a repeat drive for a possible championship in the spring of 2007.

Next Game

The fall season has ended. Coed softball resumes in April, 2007 at the start of the spring quarter. Best wishes for the holidays and a happy 2007!!!

Highlights of the previous playoff games

Semi-finals: IRULEU vs. Re-Entry boxscore

IRULEU 010532011
Re-Entry 013016112

The semi-final game of Re-Entry vs. the Division II first place team, IRULEU, was a game that will be long remembered by our team. After a controversial start, in which the first run scored by Re-Entry was not recorded by the umpire (with runners on first and second, a two out run scoring single by yours truly), Re-Entry jumped to an early 4--1 lead. It was at this point that we learned that the score was not 5--1. Shaken from the news of a run not counted, we were not able to contain a strong offensive push by IRULEU highlighted by a bases clearing triple. By the sixth inning, IRULEU had built an 11--5 lead and looked like it was cruising into the final round of the playoffs. A leaping catch at shortstop ended the sixth inning IRULEU threat (saving two runs in the process). This seemed to light a spark, because in the bottom of the 6th inning, Re-Entry stormed back and scored six runs to tie up the contest. The top of the seventh saw another IRULEU threat (two outs and two men on) eliminated by a fine defensive play to end the inning.

The bottom of the seventh inning (with the light of day fading fast) started out with an unproductive out. But, timely hitting allowed the next three runners to reach base safely. Then, with the bases loaded, one out and our leading slugger Josh up at the plate, it looked like victory was in our grasp. But, Josh's hard ground ball to 3rd base was fielded cleanly, and the throw to the plate produced the second out of the inning (by a force play). Then, instead of holding on to the ball and getting ready for the next batter, the catcher threw the ball to third base (perhaps thinking that a double play was possible). But, this was Harrison who was running from second to third. There was no way he was not going to beat the throw easily. The ball nearly hit Harrison (who was already at third base) and he ducked. This surprised the third baseman, and the ball bounced off his glove and dribbled behind him. Harrison had an intuition of what had just happened, and he immediately took off for home. The third baseman retrieved the ball and threw home. Not a bad throw, which technically beat Harrison to the plate. But, Harrison was able to avoid the tag and score the winning run! It was a wild finish to a superb game, and propelled the Re-Entry Rockets into the finals!!

Quarter-finals: Manhammer IV vs. Re-Entry boxscore

Manhammer IV 10010507
Re-Entry 032810x14

Re-Entry combined timely hitting and solid defense to knock off the first place team of Division IV. The end result was a convincing 14--7 win against Manhammer IV. Highlights include two amazing throws by Josh to Allison at third base, resulting in one out and one extremely close play. A superb double play by Allison (tagging out the runner from second and then getting the force at second base) ended a threat in top of the fourth inning. An eight run burst in the bottom of the fourth inning by Re-Entry followed which essentially iced the game.
