Dazzlers 32, Secret Agents 17 - Report

Dazzlers 8 7 1 4 0 12 = 32

Secret A 3 1 0 0 5 8  = 17

A batting master-class from the Dazzlers offense as we deservedly won our home opener at Fortress Finsbury. This Slugfest in the Sun was a thoroughly enjoyable evening for all present as the resurgent Dazzlers bounced back from the narrow Comers defeat to register our first victory in the Majors!

Batting records were being broken at regular intervals, and the stat that stands out most is that all 12 players got at least one RBI. That is amazing at any level of the game. It really shows the depth we have now and that we play as a team, first and foremost.

It was the Secret Agents that actually started the better, quickly registering 3 runs with no outs, but in a feat to be repeated a couple of times later in the game, our defence managed to retire 3 batters in a row when under pressure to limit the damage, and give our awesome hitters the confidence to relax and go for it. Despite a brief wobble near the end where the Secret Agents showed good grit and determination to bat their way back in to the game, Dazzlers ran out easy winners with a monster 12-run inning to enforce the Mercy rule.
