Spirits made their mark right from the start, with Becky leaping from 2B for a great catch off the first hit of the game from Cliff. They took the first inning 8-0, but Tigers got their fielding together in the second, stopping Spirits after 1 run, then got their batting going in the third, ramping up to 7 (very nearly 8) runs in the fifth, including a home run from Clint. But Spirits kept pushing, with home runs of their own, quick relays from the outfield and some terrific work across the infield, especially at shortstop by Daniel, to keep the lead. In the field for Tigers, Cliff got his revenge with 3 catches in left field, Dustin had a great catch and an assist in his League debut at left centre field, and Abii took a catch or two and impressed at 3B despite only playing catcher before.
