A Quick Note about Game Scores
Game scores cannot be changed in the system after Monday. That means managers or coaches have one day to enter scores or to dispute entered scores before they become official and permanent. Please make sure that any score issues are resolved before the teams leave the field on game day. The home team has traditionally kept and entered the official score into the website.

They came out blazing guns with many hits and 25 runs in the first game and showed great defense and composure in the second game including a great game ending double play from 3B to 1B. Both games were hard fought until the very end. Kudos to them all!"

The D Division Team of the Week was the Buzz.
"The Seattle Buzz won both their games this weekend. In their first game, against the Wolves, the Buzz never lost heart, never hung their heads, as the Wolves scored 8 unanswered runs through the top of the 4th inning. In the bottom of the 4th, the Buzz managed a 17-run rally on two outs. The Wolves fought back with another 4 runs but couldn't match the Buzz's rally. In their second game, with the Throttle, the Buzz played solid defense and maintained a lead throughout the game. In both games, the Buzz demonstrated their constant good sportsmanship, too. Go Buzz!"
"After being held scoreless for the first few innings this weekend, the Buzz bounced back hard-core with a whopper 17-run inning -- and carried the momentum through the next game for a 2-0 weekend. Great job, Buzz! The Seattle Buzz won both their games this weekend. In their first game, against the Wolves, the Buzz never lost heart, never hung their heads, as the Wolves scored 8 unanswered runs through the top of the 4th inning. In the bottom of the 4th, the Buzz managed a 17-run rally on two outs. The Wolves fought back with another 4 runs but couldn't match the Buzz's rally. In their second game, with the Throttle, the Buzz played solid defense and maintained a lead throughout the game. In both games, the Buzz demonstrated their constant good sportsmanship, too.
