Sooke men’s fastball playoffs underway

Next game takes place 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Art Morris Park

The Sooke Men’s Fastball playoffs are in full swing, and here’s how things are going so far:

On July 10, Fenway, which placed second in league play, took on the third-place Pirates.

The game remained scoreless until the top of the seventh inning, when Pirates’ centre-fielder Jesse Grieve hit a home run.

After this, Fenway’s right-fielder Duncan Grey was the first up to bat and hit a double, followed by catcher Darren Koster who hit a walk-off home run to end the game.

Fenway defeated Pirates with a final score of 2-1.

“There was a bigger crowd than usual at the Art Morris ballpark that night. Everyone was anticipating a great game, and they were not disappointed,” said Fastball official Georgia Medwedrich.

The next game was on Thursday, when the Hammers, who entered playoffs in first place, took on the fourth-place Compass.

Compass defeated Hammers 4 -2.

“ It was a great day, great crowd, and great food cooked up by the Harbourside Lions,” said Medwedrich.

Next week the playoffs will continue, with Pirates taking on the Hammers on Tuesday, and Fenway playing Compass on Thursday. Both games take place at Art Morris Park with start times of 6:30 p.m.
