Principal Recruiting 13, Lefty's Bar & Grill 12
Avenging a 16-1 run-rule loss to Lefty's back on June 9, Principal tightened up the league standings with its narrow victory on the upper field. It was nip-and-tuck all the way, but Lefty's pulled ahead 12-11 with a 4-run, 5-hit seventh. Sparking the rally was a leadoff double by Buffalo Rixon (3 hits, 2 runs), a single by Wendy Speth (2 hits) and an RBI single by Anthony Anderson (3 hits, HR, 3 runs, 3 RBI) followed by a one-out, 2-run double by Dave Hausmann (4 hits, 2 runs) and a two-out run-scoring single by Jeff Burrell (3 hits, 3 RBI). In the home half, Jamie Claiborn (3 hits, 2 runs) opened with a double and scored on a one-out single by Kevin Garceau. Garceau was forced at second by his daughter, Monica Garceau, but Monica ended up scoring the winning run after three straight singles by Geoff Gardner (4 hits), Sue Mulcahy (2 hits, 2 runs) and Tom Moreland (4 hits, 3 RBI). Principal: Jim Carlsen 2 hits (double) and 4 RBI). Lefty's: Kyle Rushton 2 hits (double) and Levie Smith 2 RBI.

But Lefty's hung around and pulled ahead 12-10 with a 5-run, 7-hit third as Jeff Burrell delivered a 2-run single and Tony Mallane (2 hits, 2 runs) drove home a pair with a sacrifice fly. Nevertheless, KECH (22 hits) chipped away with single runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth frames for a 13-13 deadlock. Lefty's finally scored the decisive run in the home sixth as Mallane cranked out a leadoff single, advanced on Levie Smith single and scored on the game winner by Buffalo Rixon (3 hits, double, triple, 2 runs, 2 RBI).
