670 Babes stunned Sakude, 11-9, in Monday's Chamolinian Softball Association-2nd Budweiser Softball League women's division matchup held at the Capitol Hill Ballfield.
The win improved Babes' record to 5-3, while the reigning champions Sakude (7-3) fell to second place in the standings behind Check It Out (8-2) who cut up Enamo Meta (2-8), 17-2, last Friday.
The Rookies (1-7) make up the rest of the field.
In addition, Check It Out was leading Enamo Meta, 8-6 when rain caused a suspension of the game in the fourth inning back on June 20. The final men's pairing between Man Amigos (10-1) and Elias (5-6) was also rescheduled for a later date.
Over in the men's division, the Warriors barely made it past 6-Pack (2-8), 12-11, last Friday and evened its record to 6-6, while fourth ranked Ur Balls (7-3) downed X-clusive (4-7), 16-8, back on June 18.
Notably, men's Talu Fahn (2-12) endured a pair of forfeits to Berdax (7-5) and the G-Ballers (5-7) this past week, while Elias also absorbed a forfeiture to third place Gagu Eyez (9-2) last Friday.
Natibu (12-1) and Man Amigos remain ahead of the pack with Manelos (7-4), Saipal (6-6), Familia (4-8), and Managaha (0-10) rounding out the rest of the standings.
