The highest seeded team left in the Men's Slowpitch Tournament, Aftershock/Classic Wood Floors, played just four games in the Thursday league's tournament to go undefeated and win the summer title. Aftershock, the number two seeded team, won the crown with their 19-18 decision over number eight seed Hellman Chevrolet.
Play began last Thursday (July 26) with loser bracket games to determine who would face Aftershock in the finals. Big B's Produce and Hellman Chevrolet began the evening with Hellman's coming away with a 13-3 win to eliminated Big B's, the tournament's number six seed.
Aftershock was responsible for sending both Big B's and Balls Deep (the fifth seed) to the loser bracket earlier in the tournament on the same night.
Hellman's, after eliminating Big B's, took on Balls Deep to see who would face Aftershock in the title game. Hellman's had little problem with Balls Deep as they powered their way to a 14-3 win for the tournament's final championship berth.
In the championship game, it took an extra inning to determine the champion. Aftershock was the home team and managed to outscore Hellman's by one for a 19-18 come-from-behind victory and the tournament title.
Hellman's played seven games in the tournament with five wins against two losses. Aftershock had a 4-0 record in tournament action to stay in the winner's bracket all the way through the three weeks of play.blog comments powered by Disqus
