Sunday marked our glorious return to the softball field at Irving Park, and the schedule gurus at Underdog did not disappoint, arranging a marquee matchup of Jerry Jones Landscaping and Sons of Pitches on the slate. The two longtime Underdog teams didn't appear to have much rust to shake off, as the game progressed quickly through the first four innings. In the top of the fifth, the Landscapers tacked on 5 extra runs to open up a 9-1 deficit, seemingly putting the game out of reach.

Undaunted, Sons of Pitches scored 11 runs over the next two innings to take a 12-9 lead. When JJL rallied for 4 of their own in the top of the 7th, Pitches was staring defeat in the face. Fortunately, they had longtime outfield stalwart Dan step up to the plate with 2 outs in the 7th and the tying run at second. He proceeded to launch a game-tying single to left, securing the tie.

Sunday wasn't the first time the Landscapers and the Pitches did battle on the softball diamond, and it certainly won't be the last. Here's to another fun-filled season!
