Casino 13, Lefty's Bar & Grill 10
The closest game of the night was like a form-fitting skirt worn to a buffet. It was tight until the very end. Tied 10-all in the seventh, the Casino's Anthony Anderson (4-for-4) jacked a 3-run homer and then the D sent Lefty's down 1-2-3 in the home seventh to win the game.

Firefighters 28, Group Six 11
No one was going to put out this fire. The Firefighters served notice by finishing third in last year's post-season tournament, and did not look like they missed a beat judging by their powerful performance Wednesday. The Firefighters opened with a 7-hit, 7 run first and tacked on another 4 runs off 5 hits in the second. Group Six hung tough and trailed 15-10 in the fifth, but KFD put them on ice with an 11-run outburst in the sixth. Firefighters (31 hits): Matt Christian 5 hits (HR/triple), 4 runs. Karlee Maratua 5 hits, 3 runs. Keith Potter 4 hits, 3 runs. Ken Edwards 4 hits, 4 runs. Alysia Heyer & Pam Rudolph 2 hits, 2 runs each. Group Six (16 hits): Andy Konigsmaier 3 hits (triple/double), 2 runs. Jim Carlson 2 hits (triple/double), 2 runs. Erin Resko 2 hits, 1 run.

Wendy Hossman 3 hits (triple/double), 2 runs. Rod Watson 3 hits (2 doubles), 2 runs. Sue Mulcahy 2 hits, 2 runs. Zenergy (8 hits): Warren Christiansen 3 HR, 5 RBI. Mike Belliard HR. S.Zolac single, run.
SV Associates 17, Kennedy Mortgage 1
The trouble with having radio personalities on your team is that they are all talk. Plus, if they do a morning show by the time the game rolls around it is waaaay tooooo laaaate. Sun Valley played a little bingo belting 19 hits to Kennedy's 4. Why does the musical group the Dead Kennedy's come to mind? SV (19 hits): Tyler Wheeler 3 hits (HR), 2 runs. Tom Harnig 2 hits, 3 runs. Shannon Bakkar 2 hits, 2 runs. Kennedy (4 hits): Tom Sparks double, run. Kate Mahoney 1 hit. Tyler Knore double. Shannon Flavin double.
