Last nightís baseball game was great! Both teams played very well with first one team, then the other in the lead. While both teams had many hits during the game, there were five that were particularly spectacular and which allowed their team to score runs. Oddly, each star hitter played a different defensive position, and each drove in runs with a different hit. Determine the full name of each batter, the defensive position each played, the total number of hits each had for the night (from 3 to 5), and what type of hit each got that allowed their team to score runs.
1. Dan, whose last name wasnít Kelly, didnít play center field. Mr. Payne, who didnít play first base, didnít get five hits for the night. Mr. Kelly was the catcher, but he didnít hit a home run.
2. The two players that got four hits were the player that hit the grand slam and Mr. Brass.
3. Rich White didnít hit a triple. Codyís last name wasnít Elliot. Dan hit a single.
4. The shortstop got five hits for the night but didnít hit the home run. The center field player hit a triple.
5. Mark, whose last name wasnít Elliot, played second base. Bill, whose last name wasn't Kelly, didn't hit a home run.
6. The player whose position was at first base hit a double, but he didnít get four hits for the night. Bill, who wasnít the shortstop, didnít get three hits.
