Week 18- Recap

Tue, Aug 6, 2013

Looks as though the late start agreed with some of the teams, whereas it made others crash and burn. As the gorgeous day continued, we had two upsets and two blowouts, shaking up the potential playoff seeds. What’d you miss while playing hooky this week 3 Kings, Black Betty, duckduck, Spike Hill, and Turkey’s Nest??? Let’s find out!

12PM

Field #1: Soft Spot vs. Good Co. (Shortz)

Zak’s starting a skivvy fashion trend.

Soft Spot came out strong the 1st inning and didn’t let up, as they lead the whole game.  Zak “Skivvies” and Toolan both hit bombs over Cesar’s head.  Along with Toolan (a belated welcome back, buddy), Winston “DJ Sparks” and Pizza crushed extra base hits and continue to prove that there is softball life beyond 40. Steph “Baby Boy” played his first game ever not completely beat from the blacktop and looked like he was 17 again.

As for Good Company, Cap’n Calves couldn’t recall anyone’s offensive highlights EXCEPT….wait for it…himself. He went 4 for 5, with a double shy of the cycle.

It was a very close game despite some Pink throwing errors, and culminated with my good buddy (and Stacy “Death Rowe’s” roommate) Rafa, catching the last 2 innings for the Co. in his loafers.

Game ball to goes to Yeti Josh Newport, who blew off the game to get married. Congrats, Josh!

Field #2: Loggers vs. RBar (GBlack)

Loggers had their axes turned against them!

How can a team make themselves feel even worse after allowing 28 runs to a group of Teachers? By giving up 29 runs to a bunch of Bums! The RBar Bums that is. The Loggers dismal season continued on Sunday, as the Big Blue Machine had their best offensive showing of the season. RBar had 37 hits and every player scored at least one run. Bobby Knapp had a big day at the plate, with 5 hits (including two home runs) and collecting 6 RBI’s. The Loggers didn’t only have to contend with the Bums’ hot bats, but also with the leather that was flashed all game. Stellar play after stellar play was made on the left side of the infield, quelling any potential hope the Loggers could muster. RBar’s Nat the Bat had the day’s web gem with a diving catch in left field in the 7th inning. The lone offensive highlight for the Loggers was the play of Jenn “Mrs. X”  Davies who went 1 for 2 with both Loggers’ RBIs. RBar keeps their hope alive for the #1 seed while the short-handed Loggers and their “Summer of Weddings” limps towards the end of the season.

2PM

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

How Nat “the Bat” unwinds after a double-header.

With one victory under their belts, RBar was super hungry for Win #13. The Yetis were also brimming with confidence, coming off a solid victory over Good Co. in their first game of the day. This contest seesawed back and forth all game long. With RBar leading 4-1 entering the 5th inning, Captain James Toolan hit a 2-run homer to contribute to a 4 run inning. With a game on their hands, the Bums rolled up their sleeves and went to work in the 6th inning. Down 6-4 to start the frame, RBar’s Matt S. hit a 2-run homer of his own to knot it up. Sam and Mikey Black would drive in a run a piece to give the Big Blue Machine a 8-6 lead. Soft Spot chipped away to make it a one-run game, when Yeti Slayer Josh “I ain’t scared of no Bigfoot” Rodriguez smashed a 3-run bomb to extend the lead to 12-8.  Teddy Browne pitched a scoreless 8th and 9th to seal the deal. RBar showcased all facets of the game this Sunday improving to a record 13-3 and presently hold the best record in the league and the #1 seed in the playoffs. The Yeti’s stay at .500, splitting their double header.

Field #1: Pete’s vs. Turkey’s Teachers (Shortz)

Do the Shortz

Dressed as a lady (for once), and having no game on Sunday, I left my home fully intending to just be a spectator. With no Drunk Tank in sight, we set up shop by the Teacher’s dugout. Haz soon approached me, saying they only had 9 and asking if I would play. I said I’d need the following: A pair of shorts (ironically), cleats, socks and a left-handed glove. No sooner did I say that did all my requested items fall at my feet (including the shorts that Zak from the Yetis was wearing, leaving him only in his sliding shorts). As I joined the Teacher’s in their huddle (after not knowing a single one of them in the beginning of the season), I couldn’t help but think about how far I’ve come with my vision quest of having an insider scoop of this elusive team.

After the first inning, where Pete’s tacked on 7 runs, I thought, “this is going to be a long one”. But the Teachers, who’ve seemed to be hibernating this season, came alive by tacking on 10 runs, including two homeruns in the same inning by 3B Cesar Guzman. Going into the 8th inning with a tie score of 9-9, Jake “1/3 of the Trifecta of Awesome” smashed one into the street (or so I thought), so I started chatting about wedding stuff with Al. Imagine my surprise when I suddenly see Haz covering the plate to tag Jake out at home (great assist, trees). Pete’s came back with a few more runs in the 9th, but in the end it wasn’t enough.

The Teachers’ win was a total team effort, with highlights from Andre Rodriguez going 5/5 as leadoff, Judd “Angry Man” went 4-5 in his last game of the season as he preps for his wedding day, and Mike “the Studd” Sill smashing a homer of his own (nicknames were swapped at the Nest, post-game). I’ve never received a game ball AND MVP for going 0-4, but The Teachers gave it to me nonetheless, along with a new title: Muse.

( Turkey’s Teachers 19 / Pete’s 13 )

Field #2: Brooklyn Bowl vs. Gibson (GBlack)

You should have seen the other guy…i mean trash can

The tally was 4-3….no…not the final score, but the tally of Gibson’s HRs (3) to God-dy’s (4). But to the pleasant surprise of everyone, the score was tied 5-5 for 4 innings. But then, according to the Gibson’s Todd, “something happen” and they lost by 20 runs. Todd also suffered the seldom seen buttocks injury when he made the catch on a fly ball and landed on the trashcan in LF. Brooklyn Bowl lined up the Gibby like a set of pins all day, led by 4 HR’s and 2 doubles by the former Commish, Ben Webber was also 5-5 and Co-manager Ted Houghton was 4-5. BK Bowl wins the first of two games they would play on Sunday while poor Todd has a bruised ass and still cannot feel parts of his leg.

6PM

Field #1: AT AllStars vs. Clemerica (GBlack)

This final field 1 game of the day was a marathon, going 2-hr plus. With AT grilling dogs and burgers under the tent, they were all juiced up on protein to start the game. Like a band of David Lee Roths, they jumped on the Battleship early and often. Leading the charge was Jonathan “jon jon” Tuczynski who homered to help the Gold and Green build a 10-0 lead after 2 innings. Clemerica, who’ve been enjoying their best season in franchise history, flexed some pirate muscle and hammered some homers of their own. Clemerican Craig had a big opposite filed HR to get the scoring going. AT responded with home runs from Nate “Shortzy’s BFF” and D-Nasty only to have them answered back back-to-back bombs from Markow and Wiggins. The Allstars’ 1-2 pitching combo of GBlack and Jimmy “Two Strikes” Kanter were able to control most of the bearded line-up. Former Clems babe, Rebecca Hofherr, had a great a game at the plate, going 3-4 and 2 RBI’s, as did the other AT lady Debbie Wheatley. AT stays in the top portion of the seeding with the win while Clemerica stays a game above .500.

(AT AllStars 20 / Clemerica 10 )

Field #2: 2nd Chance vs. Brooklyn Bowl (Shortz)

Andre gets to 2nd Base at least once a week

Field two had themselves a ballgame.

With a last minute no-show from Jeff and a tardy Sgt. Andre, Mayor Al-Buttah was in an all too familiar softball conundrum. Lucky for him, the Bowlers took mercy and allowed Candyman Ian to fill the void to make 9. First play of the game, Mallory “MMVP” got the party started with an insane diving play at 3rd as the Bowler bench slowly dropped their jaws in unison. In what appeared to be a gift to the Bowlers offense, only Pete Hoffman was able to capitalize on the 86er’s depleted outfield with a homer in the 1st inning.

The Chancers defense was solid (as per the usu.) but the real game changer was when 2nd Chance finally got their bats going. Tesa went 3-5 with three runs scored, Mayor Buttah went 3-5 with 2 runs scored and MMVP was unconscious at the plate. Neck-to-neck all game, it came down to The Saloon being up 2 runs in the bottom of the 9th. The Bowlers got one run back, but couldn’t save themselves from a heartbreaking loss. According to Sgt. Andre (meaning this should be fact-checked), 2nd Chance has held their opponents to less than 10 runs the last 6 games…Looks like their offense finally caught up with their defense.
