Season rolls on in to summer

The Kern Valley Co-ed Softball League despite the hot weather is heating up.

Most teams have played at least six games and the standings remain close. There are just six and one-half games seperating the teams from top to bottom.

The league will be taking a break next week as they celebrate the Fourth of July holiday.

This past week of action saw one team stay undefeated and half the league playing .500 ball.

In a battle for the top spot the Blasters (6-0) stayed undefeated as they escaped the Mixed Nuts (4-2). The final score favored the Blasters 13-11.

The see-saw battle had four lead changes and one tie at 11-11 after the top of the sixth inning.

The Blasters scored twice in the bottom of the sixth to regain the lead and then the Mixed Nuts went 1-2-3 in the seventh to end the game and keep the Blasters unbeaten on the year.
