2017 – Week Two Recap

Fri, Apr 21, 2017

Week Two is done and as always with this league we are finding people to step up and make this all work. Danny Rash and G Black chipped in with some write-ups and we are opening the floor for anyone who is interested. As I mentioned before, check with your Manager and start writing. It doesn’t matter if someone else is doing a write-up of the game from the other team. Some of the write-ups are still missing because people didn’t have time or books weren’t available but we are working this out and will be in good shape in the near future. For now, enjoy what we have…

 

11AM

Field #1: 86ers @ Spike Hill

From the pen of Lou G…..  (Because Dubin failed us… And now we cry the loss of Dubin)

The first six 86er batters got on base via singles and walks. No doubles, triples or HRs…. Just Single, Single, Walk, Walk, Single, Single, Ground Out RBI, Single, Single… The 86ers ended up sending 11 batters to the plate in the first and led 6-0. Spike answered with two in the bottom of the 1st but the 86ers stretched the lead to 6 again with two of their own in the top of the 2nd thanks to their “Singles Only” approach to the game. This time it was Single, Single, Fly out, Single, Single. 10 singles in two innings and no other hits… But it didn’t stop there.  Their next 7 hits were singles… It was a Singles Club until the 6th inning when Josh finally gave the 86ers their first extra base hit with a HR an then Jim dropped a 2 RBI triple followed by a 3 RBI HR in the 8th.

This game was never close and 86ers controlled it for all 9 innings. At one point the 86ers were up 17-4 but Spike Hill showed some life in the 6th and 7th tacking on four runs in each to close the gap to 17-12. 86ers quickly answered with 6 spot in the top of the 8th to ensure the victory.

1pm

Field #1: St. Anselm @ AT All-Stars
From the pen of Lou G…..

This game was fucking crazy. It took a 9 run 9th inning from St. Anselm to win by 1….. Seriously…. I’m not sure how far back you have to go to find a bigger rally than this. The score was 13-7 in favor of AT going into the the top of the 9th and St. Anselm sent up 8 hitters before an out was even made and that out was a SAC FLY. Hit after Hit and 13 batters later, the Saints were up 16-13…. But the game wasn’t over… AT put two more runs on the board in the bottom of the 9th but couldn’t finish the comeback.

From the pen of G Black…..
Wow what a historical collapse… Not the top of the 9th, but how easy it is to pack up the new awesome tent!!!

That top of the 9th was a perfect storm of shit. Legit base hits by St. Anselm mixed in with lack of concentration by AT. Done … Over with… We cannot take away their victory but we can learn…. Like learning how to pack up the new tent.

AT played 8 solid, amazing and above all, FUN innings. We completely fixed our problem from Game 1, which was not showing up at the beginning of the game. Our entire defense was as good as I have seen it in a long time, especially our OF!!! My lord! Our hitting came around in the clutch. We just have to carry that full concentration until the 27th out is recorded

Kudos time! And there is plenty…. Soda Pop and Danger! My goodness… Navigating those very tough corner outfield positions. Dan danced with that light pole all game and had a sliding catch to boot! Soda made multiple pretty catches including one where he leaped and petted a dog on the way down. Nate making difficult catches look routine and Billy Jeanz had a ole trap for the ages while nursing bruised ribs! Jimbo!!! Showed why retirement is no where in the horizon, Three hits and if I remember correctly A Fucking Triple! Our new lovely and amazing ladies, Kelly and Cheryl, hitting and being in the right spots defensively all day! Metzl, was again the star hitter of the game. Lost count how many hits but I can sure he will remind me. Eddie Baby!!!! You are the defensive general out there. Ersin for being Ersin and I think most of us know what I am talking about…

Field #2: Clems @ R Bar

From the pen of Nat the Bat…..

After coming off a strong start in Week 1, the Clemerican’s were feeling hopeful against the power house that is R Bar.  R Bar showed up fresh and ready to play, fully recovered from their hangovers post Richie and Katie’s wedding on Friday (the second husband/wife duo the team boasts! Congrats guys!).  Both teams showed up with a handful of new faces looking to strengthen their rosters.  Clemerica welcomes the newest deck swabbers: Other Jim, Other Danny, and Kahala aka “New Markow” (who rounds out the fiercest group of girls around!).  As for R Bar, they felt like they needed some more lefties so they added Chad (not to be confused with ChABS), Felix, and Billy (formerly of the 3 kings, but NOT a lefty, i know right?).  There were a few all too familiar faces as well…Bobby Knapp came out of retirement for the third year in a row (you’re never leaving Big Guy!).

Clemerica got on the board early, and led the game through the 8th inning, 5-4. R Bar kept chipping away, but left runners stranded with bases loaded twice.  Looked like their bats were no match for the Battleship defense…that is until the bottom of the 8th inning.  R Bar strung together a number of hits, with 9 batters reaching base, and 5 runs scoring making the score 5-9 in favor of the bums.  In a leap of faith, Battleship called up their reserves and brought in veteran Mike “Markow” Markowski who was said to be on the disabled list for the first half of the season.  Despite his maimed hand, Markow chipped one in for a single.  Alas, not enough to get Clem’s on the board.  R Bar emerged victorious in what was a very tight game for the majority.  One day it will go the other way, it’s only a matter of time right?

If you’re gearing up to face R Bar, be prepared to face off against a lineup stacked with some powerhouse Lefty’s and sneaky, yet strategic hitting.  And whatever you do, do NOT hit it to RC, that John Rocchio doesn’t let anything get passed him. If you’re getting ready to face Clem’s, be prepared.  Just because we drink, a LOT, and generally give zero F*cks, we still come to play, and our fearless leader Breezy has some tricks up his sleeve (primarily making himself the EH as well as stepping up his BBQ game this season).

Field #1: Yetis @ 3 Kings

(Yetis 5 / 3 Kings 18)

 

Field #2: Turkey’s Nest @ Gibson

From the pen of Lou G…..

Turkey’s nest got on the board first in the top of the second inning LK drew a bases loaded walk after three straight singles but that was all the Nest could muster in that inning. In the top of the 3rd, the Nest scored 4 more runs off RBI hits from Karl, Chuck and Maddie. Turkey’s Nest held Gibson scoreless through the first 3 innings and only allowed Gibson to send up 10 batters in those 3 innings. The Gibson bats woke up in the 4th with their own 4 run inning started off with a double from Pequeno, Single from AK, Double from Todd and a Single from Dolphin. Jay added a triple and A-Dos added a single to close the score to 5-4. It looked like the game was heating up but the Nest quickly tacked on three more runs in the 5th thanks to a Sean T 3 RBI HR to open the lead to 4 and the Nest never looked back. Another 4 run outburst by the nest in the 7th put the game away for good. Chuck had a 2 RBI single in that inning.

Gibson scored one run in the 7th, 8th and 9th but couldn’t string together a big rally. They had an impressive performance from SS Jay who had 3 extra base hits and a few others in the top of the line-up who got on base a few times but they never brought more than 5 hitters to the plate except for their big rally in the 4th and the 7th.

5pm

Field #1: Kilo Bravo @ Loggers

From the pen of Craig Heitczman…..

After a tough loss at the hands of the Runaways, the Loggers were optimistic about getting a W this week.  That was just before remembering which division they ended up in this season. As it turns out, it might just be the toughest in the league.  Many of the Logger regulars were back in the lineup after missing Week 1, except for one Logger Stalwart who will be out the entire season. Kilo as usual had their full talented squad, minus Q, and came out swinging–putting up 8 runs in the first two innings. The Loggers kept it close, adding three of their own. Cesar came out slugging, adding a HR in the 4th, and Kilo plated another 4, giving them 12 runs.  Not to be out done by the former Logger, Tony B launched a shot of his own into the street and cut the lead to 12 – 6.  Each team exchanged zeros for a few innings, but Kilo would tack on 3 and then another 5 in the 8th and 9th innings thanks to another HR from Cesar who was 4-5 on the day with 4 runs scored and a ton of RBIs.  Newest Logger, Mark K, powered a 3-run shot in the 9th, but it just wasn’t enough.  When all was said and done, Kilo plated 21, thanks to big days from Danny “Layers” Rash who was 4-5 with 4 runs scored and Ronnie who was also 4-5 with three runs scored.   For the Loggers, Condon was 3-4 and Moria had a great catch and tag on a play at the plate.  The Loggers look to right the ship against Black Betty (I mean, really this division was drawn out of a hat?) while Kilo looks to stop The Runaways from running away with the North Division lead.

From the pen of Danny Rash…..

In short: The Pinks (a.k.a. “The Bro-jobs”) spanked the adorable green plaid Loggers (a.k.a….. The Loggers) in a battle that will undoubtedly go down as one of the more forgettable games this season. The Pinkies slugged a face melting 25 hits and walloped 4 homers cementing the theory that those loveable gender fluid softballers can in fact, rake.  (Don’t assume Q’s gender, bro)

Murder in the first: The WSL’s most likeable personality, Shirtless Sam, started things off with a double- albeit fully clothed.  Tommy ‘Too-Hotty’ Talty, Danny “It’s Probably Contagious” Rash, Cesar “Micro Calves” , Allen Can’t Stop Won’t Stop”, “Shy” Ronnie, Stacy (the girl who’s probably better than you), and Herm “Hermdog Millionaire” all followed suit with line drive base hits. Shit was getting ugly—-like Tara Reid naked on a beach, ugly. Kevin “Comfy” hit a donger in the second inning with Tommy and Rash back-to-backing base hits. The Loggers regained consciousness and retired the side shortly thereafter. After a scoreless 3rd inning, it seemed perhaps the Loggers were going to right the ship…. But, the fourth inning saw the Pinks return to gang banging clinchers in their tight poop shoots with their Dudley bats; Shirtless Sam and Comfy led off by each smacking base hits which set the stage for a 3 run HR by Danny Rash. Captain Calves immediately followed the ‘Rash Splash’ with a solo HR.  Cesar looks better in pink (he had 2 HR’s in the game). The Logger’s left handed beardsman, Tony “I can’t believe it’s not Basile” Basile, managed to poke a Homer Simpson into the right field trees somewhere in the middle innings. Wally “Pluff Daddy” Sprinkles hit a few opposite field frozen rope singles in the 5th and 6th innings consecutively and ultimately the Pinks were able to sneak in 8 more runs.

With the extra inning nail biter Black Betty game 1 and the demolition of the bearded Log Masters, The Pinks are looking prettttay pretttayyyyyy good. They’re back in action against the Runaways after the Holiday break: LET’S FUCKING GO. FUN FACT: The Pinks managed to drink two igloos full of tasty beer in honor of Craig Heitczman’s ACL that has been missing since last Sunday. Heal up buddy.

Field #2: Runaways @ Black Betty

From the pen of Graham Gaston…..

Did you guys know that it’s been FIVE years since Black Betty won the WSL Championship?  Seems like just yesterday, right?

Did you know the last time they were shut out? Seems like just last week. It was, actually.

The Commish left strict instructions to not touch ANYTHING while he was away, and we all know that Holland’s is a reign of terror, so his team obeyed. The Black and Yellers avoided all balls, bases, opposing runners, and most especially home plate. That’s right, the Oranges from A-Bar took their 27-1 week one victory and came up with another beauty, crushing all hopes and dreams that the Betties had of .500 ball. A Shutout. Shutout. Mike Camara said he’s never been shutout, and that’s enough research for us to say that the 2017 A-Bar Runaways have the first ever shutout in WSL history!  Well, Betty ‘owns’ it, but the Oranges gave it to them…

Hitless Hank Falconi (ERA 0.50) pitched his face off–gave up seven hits in hitter’s league softball. Any it wasn’t even really that close. One guy got to third. In the eighth inning!! I mean, wow.  This guy got the game ball, the game trophy, the game hooker, everything. On the offensive side, you have Black Betty’s offense.  Get it?  HA! But the Runaways managed to put up eight on what is admittedly a very stout Betty D. Chad went 4-4–as he does.  So did New Kid On The Block Zak Haviland–he was always my favorite, Joey fans are out they damn minds. Both James Skidmore and Captain Sam Rio continued their hot streaks out of the gate to start the season with a nice 3-4 day, and Gambecki came through with some big RBIs. But the real story of the day, along with Henri’s lights out slow pitch pitching, was the Runaways’ D. Just lights out.  We’re not sure if we’ve seen a fielding error all year.

The Runaways are for real, folks–we’ll all see what they got after the break vs. Kilo’s mashers. Black Betty probably isn’t as bad as we all hope and pray they are, but we don’t think we’re the only ones who will be pulling for the Loggers next time we’re all out there next Sunday.
