Week 11 of the Mavericks League provided some firsts for the league and season. The first walk-off win of the season, the first player to record a home run and be credited with the win, season debuts from a few players, and it all ended with standings still looking crowded.

Volcanoes Stadium had a special guest last weekend, Rally the Mascot.
Jeff Disla accomplished something very few can claim in a league with a designated hitter. On Sunday, Disla homered and recorded the win on the mound for the Senators against the Volcanoes in a 12-11 12-inning saga.
His day started in centerfield, as it normally does. In the fourth inning, Disla’s two-run shot put the Senators up 5-3. But there was plenty of game left.
The Senators were finally able to snap their seven-game losing streak on Saturday against the Volcanoes.
Two runs in the first put them up early, and the Senators never looked back in the 7-2 win, their first since July 3 against the Volcanoes.
Chris Bessard may have only had two at-bats on Saturday, but he made the most of them.
Bessard was 2-for-2 with three RBIs in the Mavericks 6-4 win against the Campesinos, breaking the ‘Sinos five-game win streak.
The defending champion Campesinos are on the upswing, winning their fifth game in a row on Friday.
Thanks to three home runs, the ‘Sinos opened their week with a 9-5 win over the Mavericks.
