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.
The champions lineup included team captain Luke Mulvaney at pitcher, J.S. Wells catching, Alex Halvorson at first base, Ross Orrock at second, Mario Brant at middle infield, Jared Orrock at shortstop, Trent Collins at third, and Charlie Burgin, Connor Edwards and Snyder from left to right in the outfield, plus Chris Nelson at designated hitter.
Herculift/Boondox repeated as league playoff champion.
The Monday Night league will start playoffs next week, having been delayed by several rainouts.
