  1. The Hot Rods trailed the whole game but rallied for 5 runs in the top of the 9th to take a 5 to 3 lead. Enter closer extraordinaire Scott Shuman. He walks the first batter, the second batter, the third batter, the fourth batter forcing in a run, the fifth batter forcing in the tying run and to top it off he hits the sixth batter to force in the winning run. How about them Hot Rods !!!!!
