Highland Glass took on Misfit Toys on Aug. 7 in the Marysville Recreational Men's Softball League.

Highland Glass started out strong in the first inning, racking up five quick runs and putting the pressure on Misfit Toys. Both teams responded back and forth as each team scored in the first three innings, with Highland Glass on top 17-11.

In the last four innings, runs trickled in as Misfit Toys tried to get back into it, but fell short of the production of Highland Glass. In the end, Highland Glass proved to be too consistent at the plate and walked away with the 24-17 victory.

"It's so much fun to play and to get out here with the guys. Most of the guys out here are coworkers and we all work together, so it's good to build that camaraderie and have a little fun in the process," said Highland Glass Manager Dave Hungerford.

Hungerford played a big role from the plate for Highland Glass as he went 4 for 4 at the plate with two runs, three RBIs and two doubles.

Neal McGrath, Colton Bell and Johny Derose all came up huge on the plate for Highland Glass. McGrath went 3 for 4 at the plate with two runs, a game-high four RBIs and an in-the-park homerun. Bell put together two hits, three runs, three RBIs and a triple. Derose had two hits, both of them being doubles, added on two runs and three RBIs.

"It's just good to come out here to do something physical, fun, hit, catch and not have too high of stakes with each and every game. Some people take it more seriously than others, but it's always good to goof around with the guys," said Misfit Toys third baseman Drew Yoos.

Yoos absolutely blew up from the plate for Misfit Toys as he had three hits, four runs, three RBIs, a double and a triple.

Sean Sullivan and Justin Snyder played key roles in keeping their team in the game as they combined for five hits, two runs, six RBIs, a triple and an in-the-park homerun.
