Ron yielded only a single run in a 2-1 Dentists victory

4 out of 5 Dentists scored only two runs, but both came from Ron homers as he also shut down the Fish Sticks offense in a 2-1 win.

In an effort to snap a losing streak, the Fish Sticks switched their lineup, batting Blose leadoff in hopes to get the offense started. Ron, however, retired him to start the game, and after giving up a single to Vassallo, retired Joey to end the top of the first without giving up a run.

Dinger started for the Fish Sticks, and retired Braydn for the first out of the inning. But Ron followed with a solo home run, making the score 1-0. Chris was retired to end the first.

Ron retired Dinger to lead off the top of the second, but with one out, Blose hit a homer to right field, tying the game at one. The Fish Sticks couldn’t take the lead, as Vassallo grounded out to left field. Dinger maintained the tie in the bottom of the second, retiring Mike and Braydn in order.

Joey and Dinger were retired in order in the top of the third, and Ron reclaimed the Dentists lead when he hit another blast, his second solo home run of the game, moving the score to 2-1. Dinger quickly quieted the Dentists, howeve,r retiring Chris and Mike to end the third.

It looked as if the Gay Fish would rally in the top of the fourth, as Blose led off the inning with a triple. But Ron stranded Blose at third, retiring Vassallo and Joey and getting out of the inning unscathed.

Despite a lack of run support, Dinger fell into a groove starting in the fourth. He retired Chris and Mike in order, the first of six consecutive batters sent down. Dinger did not give up a hit in the fourth, fifth, or sixth innings.

The Dentists were shut down offensively, but the Fish Sticks couldn’t capitalize. Dinger led off the fifth with a single, but made a base running error on a Blose flyout, resulting in a double play to end the inning.

Joey doubled with one out in the top of the sixth, but was stranded at second when Ron retired Dinger to end the game, and give the Dentists a 2-1 win.
