Tier 1 and 3 of Comox Valley Mixed Slo-Pitch had the year’s first rainout last Tuesday so not many games were played in those divisions.

The only unbeaten team in the league was finally stopped as the Angels knocked off the Wild 14-13. The Wrecks pounded Berard’s Plumbing 24-1 and Nissan Titans were 27-11 winners over Applebee’s Average Joes.

The Wild rebounded from their only loss of the year with a convincing 18-4 victory over Berard’s Plumbing. Nissan Titans kept Berard’s winless this season with a 17-9 win. Peanut Gallery got by the Angels 6-5 while Mission Possible Shockers stopped the Wrecks 12-8.

Tier 3

The Steamers nipped the VIIC Vikings 6-5 to take over first place in Tier 3. In another close game the Dirty Birds squeaked by Applesauced 10-9. The Wankees beat the Elks Zombies 14-10 while the Brew Jays were 11-7 winners against the Oyster River Rats.

Tier 4

Billy D’s Dodgers continue to lead Tier 4 with a convincing 27-3 win over the Coco Loco’s. G & G Instigators had their winning streak stopped as they fell 7-5 to Merit Home Furniture Cruisers. The Instigators had another close one against the C.V. Marine Misfits but prevailed 12-11. The Cruisers easily beat the Loco’s 19-4. Komox Grind surprised RPM Electric Blue Thunder 12-7.  The Grind also split a doubleheader winning 26-3 over the Pacers but falling 20-17 to the Misfits.

Tier 5

The Malfunctions continue to lead Tier 5 as they recorded a pair of wins, 13-10 over the T-Birds and 16-12 against the Major Ballers. Cory Kozier banged out two homers and Simon Pinfield 1 as the EZ Ryders were 14-10 winners over the Ballers.

Jordan Laverdure hit a two-run homer while Simon Pinfield and Josh Maurice banged out triples as the Ryders dropped the TULS 11-2. TULS beat the Swingers 13-7.  Slippery Kittens dropped both ends of a doubleheader, losing 12-5 to the Swingers and falling 13-10 to the Contenders.
