Game 2, the Natty Boys were determined to start strong, they made some position changes & "X" was able to play in game 2, a speedy shortstop who definitely added some much need juice to the team. Natty Boys rallied for 10 runs in the bottom of the 1st. Mootz had a 2 Run Homer which sailed over Paul Maffei's head. Leading the way in RBI's was a tie between Garrett Lopez & Mootz! The Natty Boys cheering section seemed to increase as the games went on, we had girlfriends, wives, kids, even 2 dogs! They were clearly in good spirits! Good Wood almost battled back, scoring 7 in the top of the 6th. Kevin Ross added a 2 run Homer, but also had a strikeout in the game, which his teammates ripped him relentlessly on:).
