Dishwashers Clean a Path to Title
Overcome Rain, Cold, Eagle Bait to Win

For awhile the story on Championship Sunday appeared to be the rain and how it was going to postpone the climax of Fall Woodlands another week. The rain fell in earnest on the 3:00 PM game between We Love Dishwashers and The Crows, but the field held up and the Dishwashers laid on the boom with a 30-run explosion of offense to punch a ticket to the finals.

They'd have to wait to see their opponent, however, and on the other side of the bracket Eagle Bait became the story line, picking off the Hitmen and then the number 1 seed Stranger Danger by large double-digit margins.

So the final featured Dishwashers and Eagle Bait, the 2 seed doing their job and the upstarts trying to climb the ladder. The deciding game was close on the scoreboard but felt even closer, the teams trading leads a few times before Dishwashers began to pull away for good in the 5th inning. It still took Raj's clutch pitching performance and a defensive lockdown (5 runs allowed in 3 innings) for Dishwashers to complete their victory and earn the trophy. Eagle Bait had plenty to hold their head up a bit and had an impressive run, but Dishwashers were able get it done.

The Seattle Seattle Mariners overcome long day, win 3 games en route to title
Offensive and Defensive powerhouse powers through

Talk about a long day. After winning the 12pm game, the Seattle Seattle Mariners weren't sure if the later games would even happen, with the rain just starting to pick up. Luckily for everyone, the field held up in the rain and no games had to be postponed.
Upon returning to the field at 4:30, the SSM were facing a tough, veteran team in the Arbornauts. Just a week ago the Arbornauts had defeated the SSM 14-5 in a close, defensive matchup. SSM turned the bats loose for this semifinal matchup, scoring in every inning en route to a 23-15 victory, assisted by 9 runs in the final two innings. SSM didn't have long to celebrate, as they were facing their nemesis, Bottom of the Fifths, in the title game. BOTF had beaten SSM earlier in the season pretty handily, and after a first inning where BOTF hit all 3 of their HR's (totaling 4 runs), SSM knew they needed to step it up. Step it up they did, as they slowly bit into the 4-0 lead inning by inning, and in the top of the 6th finally tied up the game 5-5. Pitching and defense was the name of this championship game, as BOTF were held scoreless for the 2nd through 5th innings. With the score tied at 5-5 in the top of the 7th, Jesse (who had pitched all 3 games) came to the plate with a runner in scoring position and drove home the go-ahead run. All they needed to do was have a blemish-free bottom of the 7th and championship glory was theirs. All BOTF could do was get a runner to second before hitting into the final out as the SSM celebrated in the middle of the diamond on a well-earned victory.

This won't be the last time these two face off against each other in the playoffs, this is quite the rivalry developing. A well-played game by both teams, and a great season!
