Firefighters erased an early 3-0 deficit with a 7-hit, 7-run second, then stretched their lead with 9 runs on 11 hits in their final three at-bats. With spot starter Steve McCoy on the mound throwing deceptively, Firefighters held the hard-hitting Main St. attack to 3 hits and just 2 runs in the final four innings.

Main St./Starbucks/B&B 14. Elevate 13

Once-beaten Main St./Starbucks needed a dramatic late rally to hold off upset-minded Elevate. Sean Harrington (4 hits, 3 doubles, 3 runs) slammed a grand slam HR in the home seventh capping a 6-hit, 7-run explosion that rallied Main St. from a 13-7 deficit. It looked like Elevate's game early on. Elevate ripped 9 hits for 7 runs in the first four frames, then added 4 runs on 6 hits in the visitor fifth for a comfortable 11-1 lead. Limited to just 7 hits and 1 run in the first four stanzas, Main St. came alive in the home fifth on a Joe LaManna 3-run HR. The eventual winners added 3 runs in the home sixth cutting their deficit to 11-7 on back-to-back triples by Ryan Stavros (3 hits, 2 runs) and Wendy Hosman (2 hits, 2 runs). For Elevate, Cooper Minnis (3 hits, 2 doubles) provided insurance in the visitor seventh with a 2-run triple for a 13-7 lead. That's when Main St. put together its final rally. Main St.: Alysia May 2 hits, Natalie Spenser 3 hits (double), Neil Bradshaw 3 hits (triple). Elevate: Dirk Zondag 3 hits (double) and 4 runs, Matt Siegel 3 hits (HR) and 2 runs, Brian Shea 2 hits (double).
