League-leading Fire outlasted the Rebels 12-10 in the opener, while the lowly Education squad surprised the second-place Luis Hospital Injectables, 4-1, behind ace Gareth Knight.

Fire 12, Rebels 10
The league-leading Fire Department continues to blaze an unbeaten trail in the Governmental and Industrial Softball league after outlasting a game but outclassed Housing Parks and Recreation Rebels, 12-10. It was Fire with 12 runs on 13 hits and one error, while the Rebels finished with 10 runs on 13 hits and two errors. The winning pitcher was David Clarke Sr., and Josue Belardo got the loss.

Education 4, Injectables 1
In game two on Tuesday, the second-placed Injectables out-hit Education 7-6 but ended up on the short end of the stick against the league’s cellar dwellers, 4-1, mostly because of the pitching of Knight. However the Injectables, uncharacteristically committed three costly errors. Education finished with four runs on six hits and one error, while the Injectables scored one run on seven hits and three errors. Herminio Velasquez struck out four but still got the loss for the Injectables. Top batters for the winners were Kai Schjang and Nybo Rodgers, who were both 2 for 3 with one RBI.
