Tue, May 13, 2014

A few more teams experienced the “thrill” of getting blown out this week as our scoreboard is starting to look like that of a football league. I’m seriously starting to wonder if some of these outcomes are gambler influenced. If you see Turkey’s Teachers and Clem’s driving around with shiny new Maserati Ghiblis, you’ll have your answer.

Only thing missing this week were WSL girls and being able to keep your comments to yourself regarding blown umpire calls (Too soon?).

11 am

Field #1: Crown Vic 86ers vs. 3 Kings (Stache)

If you had the chance to read the preview for this matchup, you would recall the 2013 version of this game between the 86ers and 3 Kings. That one ended with a 3-1 final tally and more than a few refills on anti-depressant prescriptions. It’s 2014 now and the Kings came into the game leading the league in runs, while Crown Vic were coming off a 15 run output in week 4. Needless to say, the hits and runs flowed on Sunday morning and erased the memory of utter futility.

The 86ers really came out swinging in the top of the first, led by a mammoth moonshot homer from Mike Cue and a triple from Mayor Al. Before the Kings could wake up, they were staring down a 4-0 deficit. Despite some slick glovework from Mallory.V.P., the Mayor and 1B Barnes, 3Ks put up runs in all but 1 inning. Paced by 8 combined RBIs from the Tomeo Brothers and a majestic 3-run blast from Billy, the 3Ks squad was able to grind out a nice 16-9 win against the very capable 86ers.

Mad props to both lady shortstops in this game. Mallory and Francesca showed off their infield skills on numerous occasions Sunday. The boys of the WSL better put in some work if they want to get a hit by these 2!

(Crown Vic 86ers 9 / 3 Kings 16)

Field #2: R Bar vs. AT United (Stryker)

As I arose from my peaceful (drunken) slumber on this beautiful Sunday morning, two thoughts crossed my mind; one, I’m never making it to this game and two, god I hope RBAR hits more than 3 homeruns.  This game shaped up to be as good as it seemed on paper.  Both teams in the tops of their respective divisions, both hungry for the big W.  El Drunko Tanko got the mind games going early, practicing some anti HR voodoo on RBAR, trying to keep some unwanted hands out of his deep crevasse of refreshment.  RBAR would get things going early, scoring two in the top of the first, but AT responded. Petemo hit a would-be home run that stuck in a puddle allowing Adam to chase it down and hold him to a triple. R Bar went up 6-2 in the early middle innings, but United would come back with 6 of their own only to have the Bums respond with 5 more as AT threw the ball around.

At the end of the game, bottom of the ninth, R Bar leading by 2, AT had 2 runners on and the top of the order waiting when a base running miscue resulted in a rally-killing play.  It was the third base-running mistake of the morning for AT, which in Petemo’s opinion “was the difference of the game.”   

“It was an exciting game.  Too many errors, but also in a weird way, a well played game, that either team could have won.”  -Petemo.

Well said, sir.

RBAR would also not come through for me on the homerun bet with Tanko and instead of slipping my hand deep inside Drunko’s hole, I had to put on G-Black’s game jersey and cradle Mickey like a baby.

Field #1: Soft Spot vs. Brooklyn Bowl (Stache)

You could say that plan was a real gutterball, right Cesar?

Scrambling to fill out a lineup at game time, Pizza and company scraped a squad together and opened up the scoring in the top of the 1st with a big fly from Capt Toolan.  Brooklyn Bowl didn’t trail for long, scoring a huge 7-run rally in the bottom half of the inning.  Pat Snajder and Chad Ostrom both homered and it looked like the train was headed off the tracks for the Soft Spot.  Not deterred, the Yetis countered with another 3 quick runs and looked to be up to the challenge…

…then it happened.

The esteemed Joe Godsy stepped up to the plate with fellow Bowler Mike Olin on 2B. Joe launched a blast to center that Soft Spot manager Zak ran down to make a great catch. Unfortunately for the Yetis, it would up being a sac fly, as Olin pulled a heads up move and scored from 2B to plate the 9th run of the game for Brooklyn Bowl. As was stated in the preview, first team to 9 runs wins. Bowler Pete nailed it. The cardiac kids from Brooklyn Bowl held on for the win in their 4th game in a row decided by 1 run, while the Yetis stranded the tying run on second in the 9th.

Codeword: Fivel Mouskewitz was, apparently, an aborted mission for the Yetis. Back to the drawing board, Zak.

Field #2: Pete’s vs. Turkey’s Nest (Shortz)

This snooze of a game had two winners. Turkey’s Nest kept their undefeated season alive and Pete’s held Turkey’s Nest to a season low 7 runs (3Kings rejoice).

Megan and Mike led the Fireball’s solid defense in Coach Sam’s absence. Not so solid was their offense; they’d only have one run in the books, scored by Candyman Luke.

Marked down in the Nester’s book was a whole lotta Shafer.  Feeling a pang of sadness for not contributing to the Black Betty beat down of ’14, he smacked the shit of the ball to remind the masses of his existence.

First he hit a 2-run blast. Not to be outdone…by himself, he followed it up with a 3-run bomb in the latter of the game.

Any visions of…not even so much a Pete’s comeback as simply having more than a single run were dashed with a gorgeous diving catch by Mike Korny to end the game.

The victorious Turkey’s Nest would like to give a big shout out to Merhaut’s GF Anne for filling in at catcher in her WSL debut. Go on, gurl!

Field #1: Good Company vs. Clemerica (Stryker)

The last piece of the Clem’s new uniforms just came in

Not a good weekend for Clem’s. Not at all.
First they had a mystery pooper visit the bar Saturday night and leave a warm pile of his (or her) scent on the bathroom floor.  A bad omen for things to come.

Good Co. won by a lot, led by a lot the whole game, but played like they were down by 2 playing Spike Hill in the Championship. It would be easier to name who didnt hit a homerun.  There was a tightrope in right field for a while. A frisbee landed by third base.  We drank all of our beers early on.  Markow tried to play every position and was rewarded with two walks (one of which he swung at ball 4 to just try and extend his at bat).

It was warm outside.  Several good calls by Blue were challenged ferociously.  I bunted.  Enjoy the win Pink, we’ll see you at Good. Co, (its on Hope st. between Roebling and Havermayer).  Zimas on me.

I think its time for a new pitch.

–also if that loss and the ghost pooper weren’t enough, i was drowning my sorrows at Clems when coming out of the bathroom i spotted a sticker on the wall darning the face and name of the man who took 3/4’s of my manhood.  Icing on the cake.  Speaking of sweet- I saw JL, Jake and Shafer splitting a milk shake (one shake, 3 straws) at Kellog’s on my way home.

(Good Co 31 / Clemerica 8) 

Field #2: Black Betty vs. Gibson (Decker)

Betty takes team colors and team spirit to a whole new level

Black Betty eked out a victory against Gibson, 13-9, despite only dressing 9.  They dedicated the empty 10th spot in their lineup to all the mothers who let their sons and daughters play softball on their holiday.

Black Betty jumped all over the redshirts, scoring 10 runs across the first 2 innings, but got caught daydreaming about their mamas and let Gibson fight their way back into the game.  They managed to hold on and keep pace atop the Joe Fashion North Division, but not before they made it close enough to send the upset buzz through a throng of spectators.  The Betties were led by Steve “I’m an effin’ wall” Peralta, who went 5 for 5 and made a slew of solid plays at 3B and Jody “JKC” Camarra, who handled mama duty and also had a few timely knocks at the plate (seriously, give it up for Jody, folks).

Meanwhile, Gibson once again showed why everyone in the league thinks their futility streak will end soon.  Greg tallied 4 hits, including 2 HRs and 5 RBIs and Todd was back in form with 3 line drive hits and solid play in LF.  Boston flashed some leather as well with a diving catch in RF that left a 10 foot long skid mark on the turf.  Gibson was within 2 runs entering the 8th inning, but Black Betty, fearing a league-wide celebration at the Gibson, added a few more runs and clamped down on D to hold on for the W.

Field #1: Reel2Reel vs. Turkey’s Teachers (Shortz)

Many know the headline of this game as Turkey’s Teachers Forfeited the Game. But what many don’t know is the intriguing story behind their forfeit.

Fun fact, four years earlier, Haz (then going by the last name Bauer) fled from the U.S. and Russian authorities at the end of what many in the industry call “Day 8”. But Haz Bauer could no longer outrun his past when this past Sunday, he was forced to come out of hiding to prevent an assassination attempt against WSL Commissioner Holland Cowger.

The perpetrators, led by the kickball league bent on revenge for non-extended permits, manage to gain access to the controls of U.S. military drones and threaten to turn the weapons against Williamsburg in a symbolic retaliation.

To complicate matters, agents of the local CIA station (who already had the majority of the Teacher’s squad in captivity, including Mike “the angry man” sill and Shane “the Architect” Neufeld), were hot on the trail of both Bauer and Chloe O’Wulf, now a wanted criminal herself in league with an anti-government hacking organization.

So you see, “we couldn’t field a team” was simply renegade CIA code for “we’re on a badass mission to save our league and specifically our Commissioner from the depths of global destruction. You’re welcome, jerks.”

(Reel2Reel 10 / Turkey’s Teachers 0)

Field #2: Spike Hill vs. Loggers (Decker)

That’s a very friendly tag

Spike Hill kept pace with division rival RBar by demolishing the upstart Brooklyn Loggers 33-8 on Sunday.  With a little help from Ump Buttah and a lot of help from the Loggers shoddy defense, O’Malley and his cronies pushed their win streak to 4. The Loggers went into Sunday’s game hoping to go wild on the reigning champs, but without Ace Tony, the only wild they went was issuing seven walks to the persistently patient Spikes.

The Loggers still managed to generate some offense, including two first pitch home runs obliterated by 3B Crash and a steady stream of hits by Brains, Brenner and the other rowdy lumbermen. The Loggers also benefited from the presence of 13th man, Sgt. Andre, who heckled the heck out of Spike Hill and claimed responsibility for at least six outs with his self-proclaimed hysterical antics. Alas, they couldn’t pull off the upset this week, but they’ll be back next week trying to get back in the win column against the Bums in blue.

Spike Hill was all business on Sunday, taking pitches left and right (of the plate). They scored 16 runs through the first 3 innings, and didn’t stop there. Everyone contributed at the plate and their defense remained stellar, including a casual diving catch at third by Mo to quell the potential Loggers rally in the 9th. Bobby got hits from both sides of the plate and Powell, Leo and the Lovely Linda also raked. That’s enough Spike Hill praise out of me; I now know why they are the team everyone loves to hate. Go Loggers!
