Submitted by Joe Milcoun, Tigers manager

In the 55+ championship game of the 2021 season of the Houston Hardball League, the Tigers were facing tough competition from the Stars.  Lonnie Guest took the mounded and allowed the Stars two runs in the first inning on three hits and a walk. That would prove to be the Stars only runs of the game.

The Tigers answered back with two runs of their own in the bottom half of the first on a two-out, two-run single by Robert Schwartz. In the fourth inning, RBIs by Joe Milcoun, Les Guest, and Al Wall put the Tigers up 7-3. The Tigers added two more runs in the sixth to cement the win by a final score of 9-2.
