In the first round of games for the day, Division 1 teams, Jacksons Falcons - arguably the most improved team over the past 2-3 seasons - took on the reigning division champions, Dominion Niners. Both teams started off hitting strong, with the score 5-5 after the 1st innings, however the Niners tightened their field and at the same time continued to find gaps in the Falcons defense, hassling runs continually. At the end of the 4th innings the Niners had taken firm control 22-7, in large helped by 2 amazing home runs from Ronnie McAllister and 2 massive home runs from Dan De Oliviera. The Falcons rallied in the 5th innings, scoring 7 runs - including a home run from Gabriel Anzla – and although the teams were squarely matched for most of the game, the Niners closed the Falcons out 25 - 15 with a bat in hand. For the Niners - there were notable performances by Russell Wynn, who was forced play out of position at 3rd base, and Matt Satchell, who played as a "ringer" pitcher due to the Niners being one short and strong performances all round from the Niners females, Ronnie McAllister, Sam Duffy, Lynette Ferguson, Tammy Simpson and Harri Southern.
At the same time, Division 2 teams, DMS Jersey Flyers’ came up against newcomers to the league, Jacksons Eagles. The Flyers’ batting line-up began this game in good form by going half way around their order and scoring three runs in total. The Eagles, however, found the Flyers’ defence in a miserly mood and they shut-out the Eagles, with only four batters making an appearance at the Plate. The Flyers’ second innings was an improvement on their first and five runs were driven in. Although the Eagles managed more base-hits in their at-bat, they were still unable to pierce the iron cordon of their opponent’s infield, and no runs were scored. The Eagles’ defence then came to the fore in the Flyers’ third innings, as they shut them out for the first time in the game. However, their bats remained cold as the Flyers’ defence continued to keep a firm grip on their opponents’ batters, dispatching them for another shut-out of their own. The Flyers’ batting form returned in their fourth innings, with nearly every player in the line-up making an appearance at the Plate, and another six runs were scored. In contrast, the Eagles’ first three batters were out in order, for another scoreless innings. The defensive highlight of this innings for the Flyers was a double-play executed by Left Fielder, James Marshall, and Michelle Thomson at First Base. The fifth and sixth innings saw the Flyers’ batters continue to drive runs in, fifteen in total, going around the order in both. Although the Eagles threatened to score, the Flyers’ defence refused to let the ball pass the infield and executed the necessary plays. The Flyers’ scoring rate fell in their seventh and final innings, although Javier Gomez hit the first Home Run of the game. This achievement, along with his 6 for 6 batting performance, earned him the Flyers’ Player of the Match accolade. As a result, the Eagles went into their seventh innings thirty three runs in arrears. Determined to achieve a rare shut-out, the Flyers maintained their defensive form displayed throughout the game, dispatching the Eagles top order without a run scored, and they ran out 33 - 0 winners.
In the second round of games for the Corefocus Summer League, CPA Global Pirates came up against Jacksons Phoenix for a Division 1 clash. The Pirates started slowly against newly promoted Jacksons Phoenix and appeared to be deep in slumber, struggling to get their bats and gloves working. This allowed Phoenix to aggressively run the bases and take a 6-2 lead into the bottom of the 5th innings. The Jacksons team maintained a strong defense throughout the game, with left-fielder Jake O’Toole taking some vital catches, whilst also securing his first home-run of the season. For the Pirates though, a solo home run from Darren Hodges sparked them to life and this was then followed up with 6 runs in the 6th. The Pirates retired 6 consecutive Phoenix batters over the 6th and 7th innings to record a victory over the resilient Jacksons team, with the final score 10-6.
The final match of the day pitted the division 2 sides of the Tigers against the Corefocus Cubs. Both sides were evenly matched throughout the game, keeping the score close during each innings. The Cubs appeared to waiver at one point and made a quick decision to switch their fielding positions, but this did not deter them. The score was tied during the 7th and final innings, and after one last push from the Cubs during their at-bat, the Tigers were unable to follow suit and pierce the fielding armor of their opponents. Final score 17-13 to the Corefocus Cubs.
