The Mariners dropped their final game 11-7 to the Heaters but still captured first place in Tier 1 of the Men’s Slo-Pitch League over the hard-charging Watson & Ash Grabbers.

In action last week, the Grabbers got by Seeco Slammers 6-5 and won easily 13-3 over Fishers Island Adventures to fall one point behind the Mariners.  The Heaters played to a 17-17 tie with Supreme Convenience Holdups to take third place.

Applesauced lost 9-7 to the Mariners and were surprised 13-12 by the Holdups. Smokin Woodys downed the Slammers 13-8.

In Tier 2, the Outlaws and the West Coast Grinders both finished the season in first place with identical records but the Outlaws, by virtue of a pair of wins over the Grinders during the season, captured the title.

The Outlaws finished their season with a 19-15 victory over the Coco Loco’s and just squeaked by Merit Home Furniture Cruisers 23-22. The Grinders took down Madman Mckay Jays 17-10 and destroyed the Ballers 20-7 in their final games.

 

Cleveland Steamers bounced the Ballers 18-6 and stopped the Jays 13-10 to finish in third spot. Slippery Mitts never did get a win as they lost 23-3 to the Cruisers and 21-12 to the Coco Loco’s.
