Neither team was able to score in the 2nd inning. Dicks put five runs up in the top of the 3rd. Scott scored two with
a bases loaded single followed by a 3-run dinger over right center fence by Clint.
So OTN came to bat in the bottom of the 3rd behind 14-5. What followed was an OTN hit parade that pushed 14 runs
across the plate. OTN cranked out 15 hits in this rally including 7 extra base hits. Dee Davis started the rally and had two
doubles in the inning. Kenny Whitlow had a triple. Lenard"Lotto" Walker had a double and HR in the inning while
Shannon Howard and Leroy "Kilo" Thomas slammed the ball out of the park for Homeruns. When the dust cleared OTN
has a 19-14 lead.
Both team at this point had reached the 3 homerun limit used for the Mens 2A games. Dicks wings would need to adjust
their stroke for base hits if they were going to rebound. But it was not in the cards for them as over the next two innings
Dicks hit 3 balls over of the fence for outs. Dicks was able to get 3 runs in the top of the 5th to pull close at 19-17 but
ran out of time.
It turned out the big OTN inning was to be the death blow for Dicks Wings. Dicks had put up a noble effort
but in the end They were not able to answer the bell. OTN had asseted itself again as the premier Mens Softball team in Jacksonville
area. Five OTN batters collected 3 hits in the game: Terrance Hollance, Leroy Thomas, Mark Bender, Dee Davis and Darnell
Cummings. Every player in OTN lineup either scored or drove in a run in the complete team victory.
