The East Columbus Sweetees opened play with a 28-17 win over West Lincoln. East Jumped out to a 6-1 lead after the first and never looked back. They scored at least six runs in each inning except the fifth when play was stopped since West Lincoln could not mathematically catch East Columbus. Sweetees play five innings and send a maximum of 10 batters to the plate in an inning.
