ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – As the Berth “Big Man” Fast Pitch Softball Men’s and Women’s Championships continued last weekend, the Pythons completed a sweep over the Hawks, but the Pirates beat Power Outage twice to take their series to Game 6.

On Friday August 15, 2014, in games that started well beyond the advertised times and for no obvious reason other than a lack of discipline, a lack of respect for the sport and no concern for fans, The Pythons duly completed their series sweep, 4-0 over the Hawks.

The final score was 19-9, with the Pythons having 9 hits, 3 errors and leaving 5 runners on base. The Hawks had 8 hits, 7 errors and left 8 runners on base. The winning pitcher was Sheniqua Fahie and the loser was Laura Isaac.

Tafara Phillip of Pythons went 2-4 with 4 runs scored and Valissia Brathwaite went 2-3 with 2 home runs, 2 runs scored and 7 runs batted in. Jheane Niles of Hawks went 3-4 with 2 runs scored and a run batted in and Khiayah Doward went 2-4 with a run scored and 2 runs batted in. Pythons win the series four games to none.

The Pirates then faced a do or die game against Power Outage, having already lost the first three games. The game itself started around midnight and went on until around 2.00am with the Pirates winning, 1-0.

The Pirates had 3 hits, 2 errors and left 5 runners on base. Power Outage had 0 runs, 2 hits, 1 error and left 6 runners on base. The winning pitcher was Allen Smith and the loser was Neville Smith. Travis Malone of Pirates went 2-3 with a run batted in.

Still 3-1 down in the best of seven series, the Pirates were still looking down the barrel of a smoking gun on Sunday when once again they pulled a rabbit out of a baseball cap to win 8-5.

The Pirates had 9 hits, 4 errors and left 6 runners on base. Power Outage had 5 runs, 9 hits, 9 errors and left 5 runners on base. The winning pitcher was Allen Smith and the loser was Neville Smith.
