VivaTaq/Zou 15, Marketron 8

It was Prom Night for Viva Taq players, who came to the ball wearing a variety of costumes—something of a tradition for Viva Taq. Comments like, "Come on, show 'em what a cross-dresser can do," were common from the fired-up crowd, who rooted for the Marketron Mudhens to take their first victory of the season. Alas, the Mudhens kept their perfect record. Brent Anderson (2 hits, HR, 2 runs) ripped an RBI double in Viva Taq's 6-run first, and the winners tacked on 4 runs in the fourth for a 13-2 cushion as Mary Jo Musselman delivered an RBI double. Viva Taq: Ben Talmadge 3 runs, Dan Gearhart 3 hits (2 doubles) and 3 runs. Marketron: Jeff Gear 4 hits (2 doubles, triple) and 2 runs, Cory Wolfley 2 hits.

Evans Plumbing 16, Power Engineers 7

Turning on the power and looking for the upset, the engineers led 5-4 after four frames but managed to score only two times the rest of the way. Lights out. Evans unclogged its offense and flowed freely with 4 runs in the fifth, 5 runs in the sixth and 3 runs in the seventh. Evans Plumbing: Nate Rasmussen 3 hits (HR, triple) and 4 runs, Steve Hendrix 3 hits and 2 runs, Starr Olsen 2 hits (double), Amanda Steed 3 hits and 2 runs. Power Engineers: Rob 4 hits.

Bud/Oak/LDE Electric 13, Hailey Hotel 8

Slugger Sean Harrington got Bud off the mark with a 3-run HR in the first. It was the first of two round-trippers for Harrington (3 hits and 2 runs), who finished Bud's 5-run rally in the sixth for a 13-3 lead with an RBI double. Budweiser: Bobbie Edwards 2 hits and 2 runs, Lindsey Woodcock triple. Hailey Hotel: Tony St. George 2 hits (double) and 2 runs, Ryan Bronson and Steve England 2 hits and 2 runs apiece.

VivaTaq/Zou 16, Hailey Hotel 15

Things didn't look bright for Viva Taq, trailing 15-5 in the fifth. But the winners tallied 11 unanswered runs to pull off the miracle victory. They scored 6 runs in the home fifth as Brent Anderson drilled a 2-run HR and crushed the ball with the decisive 4 runs on 6 hits in the home seventh. The outcome evened a splendid two-game season series between the t wo teams—Hailey Hotel having taken the post-Fourth fireworks game 16-14. And they tied for fourth place in the Upper Division standings, but it didn't affect the tournament match-ups because the two squads were going to play each other anyway in the first round Friday night at 7 p.m. Viva Taq: Davin Hanson 5 hits (3 doubles, triple) and 4 runs, Mary Jo Musselman 3 hits (triple) and 2 runs, Brent Anderson 5 hits (double, HR) and 2 runs, Dan Gearhart 3 hits (triple) and 2 runs. Hailey Hotel: Kellen Chatterton 3 hits and 3 runs, Eric Palmer 3 hits (3 HRs including 2 grand slams) and 3 runs, Steve England 2 hits and 2 runs, Traci Ireland 3 hits.
