Casino 11, View Point 7

While the cheer "Let's show them who the real champions are" might light a fire under your team, it is also likely to incite a slow burn in your opponent, which was the case here. Casino came out hotter than a wet hornet, scoring four runs in the first to offset one by the Point. Both teams plated two in the second and it went tit-for-tat from there. Every time visiting View Point scored, Casino answered. It seems real champions do that. Casino (16 hits): Jerod Ball 3 hits (2 doubles), 1 run. Joe Reali 3 hits, 1 run. Jill Morse 1 hit, 1 run. Gretchen Wagner 1 hit, 1 run. View Point (12 hits): Matt Conover 3 hits (double), 2 runs. Jeff Sarchett 3 hits (double), 2 runs. Sue Mulcahy 2 hits. Wendy Hossman 2 runs.

CHAMPIONSHIP: Casino 9, View Point 4

Just like some of the patrons of the Casino, the bags were loaded late in the game. Trailing 4-1 in the fifth, the Casino busted loose, plating eight runs to lock up its first-ever championship. Casino (19 hits): Anthony Anderson 4-for-4 (2 doubles), 1 run. Mike Torres 3 hits (double), 1 run. Craig Morse 3 hits (double), 1 run. Lisa Valdamo 3 hits (2 doubles). Sarah Torres double, 1 run.

Kyle Rushton 3 hits (HR/2 triples), 2 runs. Nicole Buckwalter 3 hits (double), 3 runs. Wendy Speth 2 doubles, 2 runs. Kennedy (6 hits): Tom Sparks 2 hits. Jen S. 2 hits.

Lefty's 19, SV Associates 12

SV Associates carried the early momentum and the lead, but after bolting to a 12-2 advantage in the third fizzled like wet fireworks with only two hits in the remaining four frames. Lefty's (26 hits): Kyle Rushton 4 hits (HR/double), 4 runs. Dave Hausmann 4 hits (2 doubles), 2 runs. Michele Hampton 3 hits (triple), 3 runs. Jen Embree, Julie Bell, Levie Smith 2 hits each.

Firefighters 14, Lefty's 8

You could say Lefty's was flatter than last night's beer for the 9 a.m. game on Sunday morning, but the Firefighters were ready to go, scoring in every inning but one. Firefighters (20 hits): Linda McMahon 3 hits, 2 runs. Ed Binnie 3 hits, 2 runs. Keith Potter 3 hits (triple), 2 runs. Karly Maratea 2 hits, 2 runs. Lefty's (8 hits): Kyle Rushton 3 hits, 1 run. Dave Hausmann triple/double, 1 run. Wendy Speth 2 hits, 1 run. Michele Hampton 2 hits, 1 run.

Color Haus 23, Zenergy 5

Color Haus sent the Z-Team packing with a 10-hit, 10-run second, highlighted by Josh Jacobson's homerun and Kathy Seal's triple. Color Haus (23 hits): Jacobson 3-for-3. Seal 2 hits, 3 runs.

Gina Heidemann, Alley Brewer, Heather Lingbloom 1 hit each.

Color Haus 24, Firefighters 10

A 10-run, 9-hit first frame put the Haus in front for good. The 6-run, 7-hit fourth was just for good measure. Color Haus (28 hits): Bryan Burrell 3 hits (HR/triple/double), 4 runs. Josh Jacobson 3 hits (HR/double), 3 hits. M.J. Musselman 3 hits (double), 2 runs. Sarah Benson 3 hits, 2 runs. Zenergy (14 hits): Ken Edwards 4 hits, 2 runs. Keith Potter 2 hits, 2 runs. Linda McMahon 2 hits (double), 1 run. Gabby Diedrick 1 hit, 2 runs.

View Point 20, Color Haus 17

The closest game of the tournament seemed to have the most unlikely ending. With a trip to the championship on the line, Color Haus held an 8-2 lead after two, a 12-1 lead after three, and maintained a 14-5 edge after five. View Point chipped away, scoring 4 runs in the sixth and sent 11 over home plate in the top of the seventh for an improbable, but not impossible, comeback. After that, were the Point's players really wondering why Casino had such a big cheering section for the championship game? View Point (26 hits): Rod Watson 5-for5 (2 HR/3 doubles), 3 runs. Nelson Drewien 4 hits (HR/double), 2 runs. Sue Mulcahy 4 hits, 3 runs. Georgia Hutchinson 3 hits, 2 runs. Color Haus (25 hits): Josh Jacobson 4 hits (2 HR/double), 3 runs. Jeff Burrell 4 hits (2 doubles), 2 runs. M.J. Musselman 3 hits (double), 2 runs. Kathy Seal 3 hits (double), 1 run.
