Joel Snyder’s bases-loaded double capped a seventh-inning rally as Herculift/Boondox softball snagged the Tuesday Night League softball playoff championship with 14-13 victory over McPete’s/Al’s Sheds.

Herculift/Boondox needed two wins over McPete’s/Al’s in the finals and pulled it off. They won the first game 27-15 despite trailing 10-2 after one inning. Previously this summer, they were 0-4 against McPete’s/Al’s, the regular-season champion.

Herculift/Boondox trailed 13-10 with two outs in the seventh but rapped five straight hits, capped by Snyder’s double to left-center that knocked in the last three runs.
