Bonghitters subdued

It was the best of games, it was the worst of games. A Bonghitters' 4-0 lead quickly turned into a 12-4 rout by Business Week on their astroturf field in New York's Riverside Park last night.

The High Times softballers scored 2 runs in the 1st and 2 more in the 3rd, and were playing a near perfect game through 3 innings, allowing just 1 infield hit. But BW's lefty slugger clouted a 2-run HR high over the rightfield wall in the 4th, starting their comeback. Sun glare created problems for the Bonghitters' fielders in the 5th when BW took the lead, 6-4. A 6th-inning 6-run bat-around by BW put the game out of reach.

It was the Bonghitters' 3rd loss in a row, a rarity in High Times softball history. (The last time that happened was in 1999.) The Bonghitters split their 2006 series with Business Week, winning on April 27, 12-8.

The 6-3 Bonghitters face WNYC on Monday, August 17 in Central Park. Earlier in the season, they defeated the pesky public-radio team in a rain-shortened game, 9-2.
