Bishop softball action heats up for the summer

June 22, 2011

The game may not have counted, but that didn’t stop Bad Company and Red Thunder from going at it Tuesday night in the City of Bishop Softball League, Co-ed B Division.
Red Thunder forfeited the game for lack of enough women in the line-up. According to protocol, there was no winner. But, unofficially, Thunder rained on Bad Company’s parade with a strong comeback in the open seventh inning.
Bad Company jumped out to an early lead when Mike McDonald hit a 2 RBI single off Red Thunder pitcher Rodney Barlow.
