Week 9 – Recap

Wed, May 25, 2011

The weather dudes were wrong again and some of us froze are butts off, but we all got our games in despite the constant, lingering threat of rain and a very soggy day over all. This weekend was like playing on an obstacle course with our teammates puddle leaping, swamp-sloshing and proving who have best mastered the handling of what Al Buttah has tagged the “Billysburg Bounce.”

11AM
Reel 2 Reel & Turkey’s Teachers had a slow start to the day over on Field one keeping it close for a good part of the game. But in the 6th, Reel 2 Reel woke-up and pulled away, handing the Teachers their third straight loss. After the game, bench coach Halling was quoted as saying, “I’m pretty sure Cesar’s Home Run project has convinced some of our bigger, less disciplined hitters to swing for the fences. We’ll see how those guys like 6AM practices.” He didn’t name names.

Clem’s gave Good Co. a nice friendly match for about half the game, as well. But then Good Co started to ding away single after single, walk after walk, and work the count in their normal fashion. Clem’s ran out of steam following lefty Sam T’s 3 run bomb into right and were shut down after that. Wally proved he’s much better on his knees at softball than he is at Jenga, doubling up a runner on a sweet snag and throw to first. Clem’s goes down by 8 and a star is born!

1PM
Are the 4D Loggers finally back on track? They steal a huge win here from Pete’s Candy store who are hanging out there in the top of a tough division. With some timely hitting in the late innings 4th down defined clutch and jumped up one giant spot in the North. Whew.

2nd Chance really gave the defending champs a run for their money on a sloppy field two. Nat confused even Bad-boy JB$ with his smooth pitching style and held all the Betties to just 9 runs, their lowest show of the season! The 86ers tied it up in the top of the 9th but the bottom of the line-up came through for Black Betty and they run away with it on a 5 game winning streak. (Editors Note: This game was actually won on a walk-off hit by our very own sports writer Carly!! Woo Hoo!!)

3PM
Yeti’s, Yetis, Yeti’s…what is up with this 3 in a row bulls#!t? The Turkey’s Nest is standing strong near the top of the North after a huge victory against Soft Spot this weekend. Dietz was back and you could cut through the competitiveness he brings with a knife. The Yeti’s had a chance to win it in the 9th with the bases loaded, but they fell short and down into the that three way tie business happening in the middle of the South.

Over on field one 3 Kings lead Mendoza heading into the ninth, but ‘Doza swung out a 6 run comeback and stopped the Kings to win it by one. A well played game on both sides with Jay Silver entering into the HR contest with his first dinger of the season. 3 Kings voted the favorites to win it all this year in our WSL poll, fall to a humble 2 and 5.

5PM
(SPIKE HILL LOST!) Wait, let’s talk about the other game first. AT crushed The Gibson. The Gibson just can’t seem to find their bats in the last couple weeks and with the Logger’s win they are now in last place in the North…losing to everyone except the Loggers. AT’s puddle playbook came through this Sunday. (Unlike Spike Hills coveted bats!)

Okay, so who else played at 5PM? Ummm…Oh right, RBar vs Spike Hill. Take it away Rich:

“There was a great deal of talk about the Rapture, which some Bums hoped for with 5 starters attending a rock festival in Ohio and absent for their biggest game so far on the season.

“R Bar jumped out to an early 5-2 lead as the Columbus Concert Crew followed the game via texts and phone calls from surprised spectators.  The R Bar extended their lead to 14-5 after 7 innings with the clutch hitting of Jerome “The Wall” Wallin who went 4 for 4 with 3 RBI’s and Marc “Freight Train” Kollerer who went 3-4 with 4 runs scored.  In Columbus, the rain would start to pour and in Brooklyn Spike Hill would start to heat up.  Spike Hill showed why they were undefeated to battle back and score 9 runs in the last 2 innings.

“However, RBar would not be deterred…Freight Train led off with his 3rd hit and then Nunz singled moving Freight Train to 3rd and then home on a throwing error and the Bums stormed the field in celebration.  They won 16 to 15 in a total team effort.

“The rain in Columbus would end and a double rainbow would soar over the stadium.

An appropriate sign to show that the bums did the unthinkable and leave the Columbus concert crew in shock and proud of their fellow BUMS………

– Rich!

I just want to end this by giving a big shout out to the WSL ladies who played 2 or 3 games a piece this week with everyone being short all over the place!! Have a fun-as-all-hell Memorial Day weekend and we’ll be back in two weeks! Hopefully, by then it will finally stop raining!
