Week 15- Recap

Tue, Jul 16, 2013
Holy shit was it hot on Sunday!!! How hot was it? So hot that Shirtless Sam shaved his werewolf chest and Cesar’s calves lost all their water weight. Some teams remained cool while others wilted. Did Rbar’s WSL reign continue? Who doubled their pleasure- Loggers, duckduck or 3 Kings? And what the hell was Commish Holland searching for in his shorts?? Might want to back up a little there, Kev. All these questions and the rest of the mysteries of the universe will be revealed in this week’s recap! Here we go!

10AM

Field #1: Loggers vs. 3 Kings (GBlack)

They’re sexy and they know it

The MVP Boom Box worked its winning magic once again! The Loggers were looking good on their plan to avenge their Week 13 loss by taking a 4-1 lead heading to the bottom of the 4th. But that is when the Tattooed Terrors pumped up the volume and fighting back to 6-4. Undeterred by how much ink 3K displayed, The Logged Ones fought back and made a game of it. Sensing that the game was slipping away, Manager McNelis knew exactly what his team needed…a good dose of girl power. With the boom box blasting “Who’s That Girl” 3K SS Francesca Romano answered the call with a solo shot to put the 3 Kings up 9-8 in the 6th, a lead they would not relinquish. A Logger comeback came up short in the top of the 9th when rookie 1B Dan Decker, doing his best A-Rod impression, was called for runner’s interference when he “unintentionally” batted down 3 King’s double play attempt, effectively ending the game.

Field #2: duckduck @ Turkey’s Nest (Shortz)

Silly Nice Ducks

Feeling rested and confident, the Ducks took the field and even offered to catch for an inning while the rest of the Turkey’s squad finished up their blacktop game. We soon learned that nice guys finish last. JL got the re-match party started on the bump, playing through the pain of a torn ligament in his left wrist (and an undetermined “something painful” in his right wrist) to pitch a beauty.

The Ducks put forth a great effort. PeteMo, Tyler and duckduck newbie Tiff each went 3-4, while Andrew and Coach Jake each added a notch to their HR belts. Speaking of Jakes, TN’s Jake was on point at shortstop, robbing many a duck of on-base glory. His offensive efforts were equally matched, as he hit a shot at some point (it was so hot, details are hazy).

The Turkey’s subs “filled in admirably”…and by admirably I mean a new lefty (I will call him Jim because that is his name) who crushed it every at bat. I guess they didn’t need droves- they just needed that guy.

12PM

Field #1: Loggers vs. Soft Spot (GBlack)

The Yeti’s pony up at high noon

With the unforgiving heat beating down on an already defeated Logger organization, they faced the Yetis at high noon. Even more unforgiving was Soft Spot’s offense, putting 15 runs in the first four innings. Logger pitcher Tony Basile was his usual badass-knuckleballing self on the mound. But his defense, dreaming of shade and spiked lemonade, decided to take most of the game off and gave him very little support. That, combined with Yetis’ pitcher Anthony Pizza vexing the Logger’s bats all game long, the outcome was pretty clear early on. Lone highlight for The Logged Ones was Mike Saris’ monstrous home run in the 7th inning. The Yetis not only won it with the stick, but defensively as well, having a infield’s wet dream turning a 6-3-2 triple play! The BK Loggers drop to 3-10 on the season while Soft Spot moves to 4th place in the South with a 7-5 record.

Field #2: duckduck @ Gibson (Shortz)

Almost a winner…

If there was one thing the Ducks were not feeling going into their second game of the day, it was “super groovy”. After enduring two hours in the blistering, humid heat, “tired as hell” didn’t begin to cover how we felt. But we hosed ourselves down, reapplied our SPF 100 and commenced act II vs. The Gibson. (Side note: I heard Zak from Yetis make a comment on the heat during their one game, and I snapped “you bite your tongue, young man!” sorry friend) Did I mention Yetis? Well move over guys, because there’s a new sheriff in town who almost lost to The Gibson. They came 3 runs shy of capturing their first “W” of the season.

Despite the Gibson’s great hitting, the ducks fired back. All our lefties had 3 hits each, with Lauck  hitting a sweet homer. Coach Jake implemented 3 outfielders and a rover, giving me a fun new position of “Short(z) Field”. Unfortunately, The Gibson couldn’t capitalize enough on the worn out Ducks. And even more unfortunate, Grambo did NOT sport his mesh camo-shorts. However, he did offer me some ice-cold water before one of my at bats, as I looked like I was about to burst into flames (ginger problems). As both team filed in to the Gibson post-match, our opponents called out triumphantly to tenders Aimee and Russell, “We almost won!”

True story, Gibson… And great game.

Field #1: Spike Hill @ Turkey’s Nest (Shortz)

Osama Bin Backerman

The Week 6 Rematch commences with a gracious O’Malley allowing the Nesters to pick up Spar Markowski, as TN offered to bat him last and left handed. On Turkey’s bench, an animated Shafer hit two in the trees, Christie “The Big Hurt” Louis had a couple key hits, Terrance had an awesome diving catch, and former Hillian Jake gave everyone a visual treat by turning his t-shirt into a Sheik Hat. New dad Kevin Kane (congrats buddy) kept most of the Turkey’s players in check (except Shafer), and homers were hit by Phil, Alex and Kelly, who once more received the game ball, prompting O’Malley to nickname him “game ball”. I’d be worried Powell, sounds like O’Malley has a new twinkle in his eye. I’m not sure if we’ve mentioned it yet that IT WAS SO HOT OUT, but the heat was vicious and hit some harder than others.  Ms. Mo got legit heat exhaustion and later barfed up what appeared to be bits of a sandwich and Turkey’s Marg. Although a couple of Spike Hill defensive errors (that happens?!) kept the Nesters in it, in the end the mighty Spike Hillians could not let the “terrorists” win.

Field #2: 3 Kings vs. Good Co. (GBlack)

Too hot to handle

In what turned out to be most exciting game of the day, Good Co. faced a tired, but willing 3 Kings team. After Pink’s pitcher Cesar snagged a laser smacked up the middle that almost took his head off (or would have hit any one else in the nuts), 3Ks retaliated by putting a curse on him to make him walk Matty No Times twice in a row.

Mike “5B” V made his firemen brotherhood proud with a 2-run double. And to match the Crowned Ones non-cup wearing shortstop Francesca (who had a dope over-the-shoulder catch), Good Co’s Stacey Rowe killed it at SS and also at the plate by going 4-4. As the Duracell’s dwindled in the Boom Box, 3K stretched it to extra innings. Good Co.’s Sam Turner came through with an EPIC walk off homer to left field in the 10th. 3K split their double header and are a game above .500 and with the thrilling victory, Good Co. does the same at 6-5.

4PM

Field #1: AT vs. 2nd Chance (GBlack)

Vinny blows…hard

With the temperature still hot as balls in the late afternoon, these two squads met for the second and possiby last time this season. AT was the away team for the first time all season and they took advantage, jumping on the Saloon like a deranged baboon at the drive-thru safari.

AT’s Justin “The Stick” Moench had a solid game at the plate and paced the offense, scoring on his first three at-bats. The true story of this game was the Allstar’s defense, with 3rd basemen Daniel “DNasty” Chaupis flawless outfield play, Second Chance got very little…well second chances. One of the few 86’er highlights was 2nd basemen Mallory Nomack’s stellar game in the field. The same could not be said for SS Hot Hand Luke, who took a nasty Mccarren hop to the throat. The last time I saw some one take a shot in the throat like that was on YouPorn. Fear not ladies (and Andre), his face is still intact. AT (9-3) gets back on the winning side of things and keeps up with Spike Hill in the North, while 2nd Chance strives to solidify their bottom bracket playoff seed.

Field #2: Clemerica @ Brooklyn Bowl (Shortz)

“WE DRANK ALL THE BEERS”

When you can barely remember playing your own games, let alone watching others, you feel exceedingly grateful to have guest WSL pirate columnist, Stryker, on the scene. Spoiler alert: no cats make a cameo in this recap.

(To be recited in sad pirate voice) T’was a beautiful 125 degree day out as these two teams hit the field. Clems was pumped and looking for revenge after an early season loss to the Holy Rollers. Breeze, the southern gentleman he is, made good on his bet, and served up two half trays of delicious brisket (napkins almost not included) to the KingPins pregame.  Unfortunately, the Bowlers refused to fulfill Clem’s request for them to finish the trays before the game started.  The Battleship struck first after finally getting a slight handle on Pete’s very nonchalant, but effective pitching style and went up one.  It would be a back and forth battle from there as both teams showed what they were made of: Craig’s aggressive base running and aggressive fielding, Markow’s 3 “Willie Mays” style catches, and Stryker’s really long triple (should have been a homerun, but according to Stryker, “someone” was in his base path). As Clemerica went up by a couple, Godsy tried to get the Pin Pushers going by doing 87 pushups during one of Strykes pauses (I wanted you to hit a homerun so bad).  As the game sped by and Clems beer supply ran low, the Pirates (not butt this week) found themselves up by a narrow margin. Stryker attempted to thwart whispers of a Bowler rally by beaning Palma. Without flinching, she creamed one of her 10 hits on the day.  As Team Ebowla kept the hits coming (and Clems kept the overthrows to third base coming), the Bowlers found themselves up by 5 going into the top of the 9th.  Then shit got “real” when The Battleship made the grizzly discovery they had no beers left. The mainsails were raised and the cannons loaded as The Clemericans set their Marine Chronometer to comeback!  The hits came and Clems scored 4 to cut the lead to one, but alas t’was not meant to be.  Pete overcame the “Clem-versity” and got the side out and the win.  Arrrrrggghhhhhhhh.

Field #1: Black Betty @ Turkey’s Teachers (Shortz)

Welcome back, Mama x2

What a difference new jerseys make! The Betty were able to bounce back from their prior loss, thanks in large part to their jersey make-over and of course, to the return of WSL lady favorite, Jody Camarra!

Holland pitched a gem with 7 scoreless innings, only giving up a total of 3 runs to a thin teachers team. As for the Teachers, had it not been for drunken Allstar subs, GBlack, Bill and Nate (my best friend), they would’ve had to forfeit.

Even with a full squad, the Teachers were no match against the Betty and their outburst of home runs (Mike Camarra had two, Andrew got one, and even the Commish himself snagged a homer of his very own. Reports confirm an un-eventful game for the most part and when the dust settled, Betty emerged victorious.

(Black Betty 20 / Turkey’s Teachers 3)

Field #2: RBar vs. Pete’s Candy Store (GBlack)

Pete’s got the best candy!

The late game saw the team with the top record in the league face off against a very feisty and stacked Pete’s team. Coach “Blues Clues” Sam tried his hand at pitching against The Big Blue Machine and held the Bums to 6 runs, half of their per game average. Matching Sam’s pitching performance was Rbar’s Teddy, who also pitched a hell of game. Candystore’s Jake Levine broke a tight one run game in the 8th with a grand slam. Outfield sensations Scott Kirby and Ian Fenger played solid D to help corral Rbar’s offense. D-Lo was unmatchable at the plate, going something like 17-4 (it’s not the first time Sam could not figure out a pretty woman). RBar dropped only their 3rd game of the season, while Pete’s shows off their muscle and staying power in the tough South.

(Pete’s 13 / RBar 6)

 

Until next time…

Toodles!
