It looked like another one of those Pitch Slap games: off to a strong start, then fade to another notch in the lost column.
This time Pitch was matched up with Reds, who might not have a great win/loss record, but come with a dugout full of strong athletes and power hitters. Pitch took the early advantage, then the Reds powered back to a 5-14 lead going into the open sixth inning. Pitch had one last shot at pulling off a come-from-behind; all they needed was 10 runs and theyâ€™d go 5-5 in league action. Yeah, like all anybody needs is one winning lottery ticket.

This past weekend, Bloodlines went 7-0 for the championship title at the All World Nevada State Nationals Championship Tournament.
