The bats didn't come alive until the 3rd inning Saturday night at Hibbs-Hooten. One big reason, HEAT pitcher Sam Curtis who struck out 12 Daubers, keeping them in check early on. Knotted at 1 after 3 innings of play, the HEAT would start their trek towards victory, leading 4-1 after 4, 6-2 after 5, 10-2 after 6 and 12-4 after 7. The Daubers had a big 8th inning rally, with 5 runs and closed the gap to 4, 9-13 heading into the 9th. The HEAT would hold on for the W, final score VC 11 HEAT 13. Alex Lyon and Luis Amaro had HR's, the latter a 3 run HR! An RBI Triple in the 5th by Cody Robinson scored Caleb Dubler and Cade Carter. An RBI Double by Alex Lyon in the 4th added to the cause, scoring Cade Carter and Itchy Burts. An RBI Single in the 8th by Cade Carter provided an insurance run for the HEAT who held on for the 2 run win after a strong comeback attempt by the Daubers.
