Zach with the weekly softball report:  Jose Hernandez didn't wake up Wednesday morning thinking that he would bring in the winning run in the bottom of the 7th inning that night.  He went to bed, however, knowing that he did just that.  Tight defense kept the JKR softball team in the game, and they were only down three runs when their last batters took to the plate.  Strong hits and smart running (aided by excellent base coaching) steadily marched the batters around the diamond, tying the game at 11 when Hernandez stepped into the box.  With one out and runners in scoring position, Jose only had to pop up deep or send a blooper over the heads of the infield to bring the winning run home.  He did neither.  A hard line drive tight to the third base line allowed the runners to advance and gave the JKR squad another win in their turnaround season.

Also worthy of note: an excellent home-brewed beer made an appearance on the JKR bench, marking the first time a keg has been tapped at a softball game.
