the inning. Then they got a single to score a run by Dan Berry to put
the Undies Worn Twice up two to zero before they got three outs to
end the inning. Sons of Pitches again went down in the bottom of the
second inning one two three.
It wasn't until the bottom of the third
inning before the Sons of Pitches got their first base runner, but

could not capitalize. The same was happening with Sons of Pitches,
getting player on base, but couldn't capitalize.
The game would
continue this way with great defense from both teams and the

Sons of Pitches had to
put their rally caps on if they want to put this game in extra innings
or even win the game for the championship. Sons of Pitches started
the tenth inning off with an out and then got a single and Undies
Worn Twice got an error that turned into another single to put the
tying run at first and the winning run at bat for the Sons of Pitches.
The Sons of Pitches batter popped up to the shortstop for an out and
the baserunner on first ran half way to second before realizing that
he/her did not tag up and the shortstop from Undies Worn Twice
threw him/her out for a double play to end the game and give
Undies Worn Twice the CO-REC softball Intramural Championship.
The final score again was Undies Worn Twice two and Sons of Pitches
