Michelle made a diving catch to end the inning and scraped up her knees.  You can see why they call her the "Dirty Dozen". (Her number is 12)

When Michelle got into the batters box, the Umpiretold her that she had to get the blood cleaned up, because of the "Magic Johnson rule".

After Michelle got her wounds cleaned up, she ripped a line drive to the fence.

You can see the ball hitting the fence, just under the score board.

By the time they retrieved the ball, Michelle was on third.

We lost another tough one, so we will be facing elimination in our next game.  It is time to check for messages.  A quote from a Jimmy Buffett song, "Everybody's on the phone, we're so connected, we're all alone."
