Week 12- Recap

Tue, Jun 25, 2013

Not one or two, not even three but FOUR teams scored just one f’ing run this on Sunday. Come on, you turds- you’re better than that! Certain Northern teams should thank Pete’s for their one-run scoring extravaganza because if not for them, the scoring drought would have just belonged to the North.  The South goes 5-3 on the last week of inter-league play and edges out the North 17-15 overall for bragging rights. But who were the master craftsmen on the mound pitching those one-run victories? Did Spike Hill snap their longest losing streak ever?! Did the Loggers turn their axes towards the The Battleship hull?

11AM

Field#1: Rbar vs. AT Allstars

That dog can drink AT under the table

Rbar sought out their second straight win vs. the other top team in the North, while AT tried to avoid a two game losing streak from happening. Both teams displayed top pitching form, notably Rbar’s Teddy and Allstars’ Gerald were not only battling each other, but a very interesting strike zone all day long. The Bum’s Bobby Knapp beat the AT shift and drilled a double down the left field line to contribute to their score. The AT bats just never really woke up, as they left the bases loaded twice. Perhaps they should start setting up the Drunk Tank behind home plate, fucking drunks! Rbar finished a impressive 4-0 against the North and now share the lead in their division, while AT split their inter-league schedule 2-2.

Field #2: Loggers vs. Clemerica 

Still with the logger spirit

Although Breeze and his fellow Clemericans were hoping to exact some revenge for his sidelining injury, the Loggers timely hitting and staunch defense were too much for the Battleship to handle. Whilst Cap’n Brenner sipped Mai Tai’s on the beaches of Fire Island, Loggers 3B Mike Saris and SS Mike “Brains” Brenes stepped it up, each going 5 for 5 and a combined contribution of 7 RBIs and 8 Runs Scored.

Seemingly down for the count, Clem’s made a dope-tacular comeback effort in the 9th inning, led by Stryker’s savvy base running and some, “favorable officiating”. Alas, it was not enough to tighten that double-digit gap, The Loggers closed out their inter-league play with a triumphant victory over the feisty Clemericans.

1PM

Field #1: duckduck vs. Black Betty

Thinker, Drinker, or Stinker?

Around 1:30, as we were driving home from a wedding, I joked, “Hey, so how many runs do you think we’re losing by?” By 3:30, I would find out just how bad my joke was as the grisly reports flooded in:

“Lost the battle and the war….”

“Got a Cosmic beatdown…”

“It was REEEEEEALLY bad…”

The only high point for the Reelers was in the 1st inning, when they scored their one and only run (by Lauck after two singles and a sac fly), while the born-again Betty played Betty-like ball. Camarra had a great day at the plate with another homer notch added to his belt, as did the one-footed CI and rookie Andrew “killing it” Killian, (a double short of the cycle, but made up for it with an additional triple). Rumors persist that duckduck had a little inter-team discord around the 4th or 5th inning, but I chalk that up to the heat, as we are notoriously crappy in 90-degree weather. Around dusk, I happened upon my team holding court outside the Gibson, where the mood was ominous. Case-loads of empty Budweisers were strewn around their table and heads were bowed (either from sadness or unconsciousness), while the passing afternoon rainstorm was reportedly concentrated directly above their heads. I’ve honestly seen children happier dropping their ice cream onto the street, three licks in.

Fear not, Reelers, Mama’s here this week and ready to bring the pride back!

Field #2: Turkey’s Nest vs. Soft Spot

Since at print time we received no news on this game from either manager,  we give you even more footage of the sashaying and very sexy Sasquatch.

3PM

Field #1: Brooklyn Bowl vs. Good Co

Maybe ask again next week?

Brooklyn Bowl jumped out to a commanding seven run lead with sharp hitting and by capitalizing on some throwing errors made by the Pinks. The Bowlers tacked on 2 more runs in the second, making Go. Co’s “outlook not so good” for a few innings. BUT they slowly dug themselves out of their deficit (including Allen who CRUSHED the ball) and eventually took the lead in the 7th 10-9. By the 8th inning the Bowlers were back in the driver’s seat, scoring three runs on a lead off double by Joel (who shined in this grudge match by going 3-3 with a sac fly), and by Godsy who pulled an “O’Malley(no, not by flying across the world to sit in an airport for two hours, then flying back to keep his airline status), but by going “oppo” for a 2-run homer.

Joe followed up his timely HR with an amazing running catch in the gap to rob Cesar of a homer of his own. Bowler Pat Snajder also made an improbable, through-the-crowd, diving catch in the 9th to lead off the bottom of the 9th, and ensuring the victory for his squad.

Field #2: Gibson vs. Turkey’s Teachers

Never let go, Haz

When you don’t want to lose for the eighth consecutive time, what is a team to do? How about you bring in your Ace who pitched your only win of the season so far. The Teachers did just that with Alan “AGGIE” Golgoski, who is now 2-0 on the mound as he led the battle against the hard-playing and very spirited Gibson. The Teacher’s Christina aka “CK” aka “UCLA” continued to impress with a great defensive game at SS and also homering for the second time this season. Judd ” The Studd” Winton also went deep.  After the game, a very happy and intoxicated Haz not only bought the first round of many beers at The Nest, but also led the entire bar in belting out the Titanic song “My heart will go on”. TNT is off the snide while the misery for the Gibson goes on.

 (Turkey’s Teachers 17 / Gibson 10)

5PM

Field #1: Pete’s vs. Spike Hill

Wrong sport you say? Eh, close enough

In a surprise to no one, the Mighty Spike Hillians bounced back from their losing streak by pulverizing the Orangiers. Trying a new winning formula of being viciously hung-over (a page out of the AT playbook), they scored 12 runs in the 4th inning alone, with some advancement on the HR leader board with blasts from Phil, Kane, Doug and Alex. Rebecca of AT was seen passed out on the sidelines (the game was that exciting) as her teammate Mickey Smiles predicted Spike Hill would win, and get trounced by AT the following week.  So far he’s half right…

Not to be outdone by Godsy’s earlier efforts, Rike RoRalley attempted to not “go oppo”, his usual M.O. It may not have moved him up on the HR leader board, but it did get him on base- good for you! Pete’s declined to send highlights, except to inform Spike Hill that Matt Abbott is still alive after taking that point blank range errant throw from Leo off the forehead as he innocently stood on second base. It’s worth noting that RoRalley was very impressed with Kirby’s arm, stating in his post-game conference held in his apartment before an audience of his 27 guitars, “I would pay to see him play” (Don’t worry- no one knows it’s you, O’Malley).

Field#2: 2nd Chance vs. 3 Kings

See Tommy, we don’t have to hit HRs EVERY time…

Holy shit…do The 3 Kings know how to play this game the right way! In what was the most competitive game of the day, the Crowned Ones played their most complete game of the season. Matty No Times gave up only 1 (unearned) run. He was so good that Sgt. Andre tried the lethal army-trained “decapitation comebacker”, only to have Matty just move his head to the side and say ” I needed a shave, Thanks!” 3K tried small ball for once this season, with timely hits by Matty, Jose and Stash and walks by Nick Tomeo, they pieced enough together in a very well-played defense game. The 86er’s season limps on despite a hard effort, while The Kings’ boombox is 3-0 on the year! #realamerican

Until next time,
