While the weather heats up, so does the action on Linda Kissack Ballfield in Lake Isabella as the players of the Kern Valley Co-ed Softball League continue to battle it out this season.

The showdown between the Regulators and the Hot Shots was the Game of the Week this time around, with a close score of 23-22.

The Regulators came out swinging, scoring 16 runs the first inning with 12 RBIs and a solo homerun by Adam.

The Hot Shots had some ground to make up but only managed to pick up 2 runs in the first 2 innings. It wasn’t until the third inning that the Hot Shots picked up some steam, scoring 6 runs with 3 RBIs and a homerun by Wayne that brought in three additional runs.

The Regulators managed to hold onto the lead for the first four innings, only adding seven more runs to their score, topping off at 23.

But the Hot Shots weren’t going to be snuffed out so easily, swinging back with a 12 run rally in the fifth inning. Unfortunately, they would come up just short with a score of 22.
