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 theyâd go 5-5 in league action. Yeah, like all anybody needs is one winning lottery ticket.

Local softball players MaNeSe Braithwaite, 9, and Jazmyn Dondero, 9, have been playing U10 fast pitch softball with the Bloodlines of Gardnerville, Nev. since early June.
This past weekend, Bloodlines went 7-0 for the championship title at the All World Nevada State Nationals Championship Tournament.
Dondero pitches and plays third base; Braithwaite plays in right field and sits at the top of the batting order. Both battled it out with the rest of their teammates during the three-day, double-elimination tournament.
Friday night's finals of the California High School Rodeo Association offered up maybe a little too much suspense for area residents cheering on locals Kayla Inderbieten and Chase Bowen.
Both made it into the finals after the first two go's, Inderbieten in barrels, Bowen in bareback riding.
The prize at the end of Friday's finals was a trip to the National High School Rodeo Association's Finals held in Wyoming in July. Bowen is going, Inderbieten missed it by 0.135 seconds.
The Chuckawallees and Bad Company faced off Tuesday night in the C Coed Division of Bishopâs Adult Softball league. Bad Company came in undefeated with the Chuckawallees right behind them at 1-1.
Chuckawallee took a couple of innings to warm up, but when they did, Bad Company went reeling with a 3-8 deficit. Then it was Bad Companyâs turn to fight back, making the winning run in the bottom of the sixth for the 11-10 win.
Bad Company took out the top of Chuckawalleeâs batting order in short order in the top of the first, then put the offense to work.
Considering that the area just celebrated Mules Days, the fact that roughly 300 runners spent the previous weekend, (May 18), trotting from 20-62 miles up and down the Eastern Sierra, on foot, seems like cruel and unusual punishment.
In its 19th running, the Bishop High Sierra Ultramarathon is divided into four segments, each running simultaneously, a 100K, 50 miles, 50K and a 20-mile Fun Run.
Allison Inderbieten, a seventh grader at Home Street Middle School, is on her way to the National Junior High Rodeo Finals in Gallup, N.M. as part of the California team.
Inderieten will be competing in barrel racing and breakaway roping at the finals June 23-29.
The finals feature more than 1,000 contestants from 41 states andCanada and Australia vying for $75,000 in prize money and $100,000 in college scholarships. But the big prize is the title of NJHRF national champion.
