The first game - could have been better. NAFCU struggled to get the bats going early and ended up losing the first game 15-3. The second game was a much better game and the Diamond Cutters were given a run for their money. NAFCU got behind 2-7 early but chipped away with 2 runs in the top of the 4th inning making it 4-7. After three straight outs, the NAFCU bats caught fire in the top of the 5th with every batter hitting in the inning - the end result being an 8 run inning and a 12-7 NAFCU lead. However, the Diamond Cutters proved why they were leading the league and came through with 6 runs in the bottom of the 5th for a 12-13 victory. Despite the loss, the 2nd game was the best the NAFCU Nationals have played as a team and bodes well for the rest of the season.
The current record is 3-7 with a late season push needed to make the playoffs. We can do it.
