4 out of 5 Dentists busted out in the second inning for five runs. Bradyn drove in four of the five runs, including an inside-the-park three run home run, thanks in large part to fielding errors by Pumice on Slow! Down 5-0, Pumice was unable to score in the bottom of the second, when Chris retired the side in order, including a strikeout of Gaurav.

The Dentists added to their lead in the third, when Chris led off the inning with a solo homer. Brad retired Mike, but gave up back-to-back solo home runs to Bradyn and Ron, which extended the Dentist’s lead to 8-0. Brad retired Chris to end the third inning, the last batter he would face.

Pumice on Slow! finally got on the board in the bottom of the third. Luke led off the inning with a single, and Holly followed with a two-run bomb to right field, cutting the score to 8-2. Chris then retired Gaurav and Brad.

Pumice on Slow! made the call to the bullpen, bringing in Gaurav for his first appearance of the day. He retired the side in order in the top of the fourth.

With one out, Pumice on Slow! rallied in the bottom of the fourth with three consecutive homers off Chris. Holly started things off with her second consecutive home run, followed by Gaurav and Brad. The three runs cut the deficit to 8-5, but it was the closest Pumice would get, as Luke struck out to end the inning.
