Who's Buyin'? fights the Wenatchee heat, finishes 5th at PowerBall

All in all, a good tournament, I thought.  Playing through 100+ degree heat, we really only gave one game away (the first, against Line Drive, where we went from up 1 after 6 to down 10 a half-inning later).  The team that knocked us out on Sunday, Redneck Boys BBQ, ended up losing in the next round to the other team that beat us in the round-robin, Sharp Softball.  Then Sharp Softball (who hadn't lost a game yet to that point) lost the championship to the OTHER team that hadn't lost a game in the tournament, 2Xtreme.  So we ran into some tough teams that were way more accustomed to those conditions than we were, and we didn't gome out on top, it happens.  Bottom line is we had a great time, we played some good ball, and I don't think anyone suffered any serious ill-effects due to the weather, so it was a good trip.

Thanks a lot to Kale and Adam for coming to help out.  All-Star beer glasses went to Brandon Molina and Adam Flournoy, mostly for their consistent defense, but also for the clutch batting performances both put in late in the tournament.
