Joe's Pizza prevails over DJ's

Joe’s Pizza is the co-leader of the Shelbyville Mens Softball League and DJ’s Landscaping is winless. But on Wednesday night, it took a 5-run rally for Joe’s to take game 1, 13-8. Once they got the upper hand, Joe’s rolled in game 2, 16-2.

DJ’s got on the board right away on Wednesday with a 1-run 1st. Joe’s got on the board too, but rather understated, taking a 2-1 lead through the 1st. DJ’s got those two runs back and shut out Joe’s in the bottom of the inning. DJ’s added a pair of runs in the 3rd and was up 5-2. Joe’s got a run back in the bottom of the 3rd, but was still down 5-3.

DJ’s failed to score in the 4th. That left the door open for Joe’s and they burst through it with a 5-run rally. Joe’s led 8-5 and would not relinquish the lead the rest of the night.

DJ’s didn’t quit scoring a pair of runs in the 5th and made it a 1-run game, 8-7. Joe’s had the taste of blood and kept scoring. They had a 3-run 5th and a 2-run 6th to go up by six runs, 13-7. DJ’s couldn’t keep up, only getting a solo run in the 7th, and took the loss.

The Joe’s Pizza oven was warmed up and cookin’ in game 2, while DJ’s Landscaping’s mower blade needed to be sharpened.

Joe’s used a 4-run 2nd and a 7-run 4th to post a 13-0 lead, before DJ’s got on the board. DJ’s got a single run in the bottom of the 4th, but Joe’s got that back in the 5th. DJ’s last gasp was a 1-run 5th, capping the final score, 16-2.

After the double-dip win, Joe’s was alone atop the league at 9-1. Monical’s Pizza (formerly Legends Draft House) is 7-1 and tries to stay tied with Joe’s as they face a stiff challenge from #1 challenger B&R Marine (6-2) on Thursday.
