Offensive production continued to be no problem for the Deltaville Deltas last weekend, but a defensive lapse in the final inning of Sunday’s game doomed the Deltas to their first regular season league loss in two years.

Deltaville stands at 6-1 in league play, and 7-2 overall. Deltaville, Team Woody, and the Richmond Smokies all sit atop the standings, each with one league loss.
