Treds shortstop Will Miner makes the play.
Scoring in every inning but the last, the Treds avenged a previous
loss to the Boilers with a 15-5 spanking in the Monday early game.
The longest blow was a fourth-inning home run by Pete Lambos.
The Wildcats seem to have the Makos number. They beat them 19-13 on
June 9, and overcame a 6-3 deficit in the final inning to beat them
again on Monday, 9-6.
Also Monday the unbeaten Brewhas were mismatched with the winless
Riptide in a mercifully shortened game.
Last Wednesday the Hurricanes blew by the Riptide and the Makos trod
on the Treds.
In Thursdays trifecta, the Brewhas had their way with the Sandogs,
the Wildcats chewed on the Treds, and the Makos mauled the Boilers.

doubles, one of your main concerns is to cover the middle of the court
as this is the easiest shot for your opponent. When your opponents
hit a wide shot to your partner, it is your responsibility to cover
the middle. When the ball is hit wide to you, your partner should
cover the middle. Also, during long rallies with one up and one back,
it is the net persons responsibility to move with the ball up
and back, thus protecting the middle of the court, just in case your
partner accidently hits it to the opposing net player.
