Here are the scoring plays and a few defensive standouts from Game 1 of a double header. The Redbirds loaded the bases in the first two innings, but could get only one run across each inning. The Chaos tied it in the top of the 4th with a two run homer, then pulled ahead 2-3. In the bottom of the 5th, with bases loaded, the Redbirds got a run via base on balls, but no more scores. The Chaos moved ahead again in the top of the 6th.
The Redbirds faced the end of the game (a 7 inning double header game) in the bottom of the 7th, but a lead off double (plus extra base) by #3 Tyler Davis and single by #33 Cale Sumner tied the score 4-4. In the top of the 8th, the Chaos scored, again forcing the Redbirds to score in the bottom. #1 Tommy Reed got a lead off hit, and #25 Ben Brewer missed the walk-off by less than a foot, but scoring Reed to again tie the game (5-5).
The teams then faced what they had not seen since the 3rd inning: a scoreless inning. For the next 3 and a half innings, no score, held that way in part due to a throw by #8 Zach Hutton to get a runner out at the plate.
Finally in the bottom of the 12th, #13 Brett Mercurio gets a hit and #22 Casey Allison, on with a walk and advanced to second in a fielders choice, beats the throw to home. Final score, Redbirds 6, Chaos 5.
