Week 12 – Recap

Tue, Jun 14, 2011

Baby Boy's baby daddy, Winston!

Well, we made it through another Craft Fair without injuring anyone antiquing and with minimal obscenities shouted to oblivious hipsters rushing through the middle of our games desperately seeking out original handmade doilies. Thank God none of us take that personal *wink*…but let that Zombie Parade become an annual McCarren thing and we’ve got problems…I’m just sayin’.

Black Betty and 4th Down Loggers. Both teams seemed to kind of sleepwalk through the game due to the early start. JB$ finally got on board the HR Train with his first one of the season. Fortunately for The Betty they held Cesar to no home runs which was quite a feat considering he was aiming for the handmade ascots booth next to the light pole (heard him & Merhaut picked up a his and his matching pair for $29.99 per). The game was close, the Loggers had the tying run on 2nd in the 9th when Mike Camarra (of Violet Camarra fame) made a diving catch and doubled up Mark Brenner on 2nd to end it all. Last we heard, as of 11pm last night Brenner was still on 2nd base

The Last Out...

The Last Out...

and he wanted to let the Loggers know he’s warm, he can still text, and he’ll be there until Sunday for your match up against Rbar. (For more images of the game, check out the pictures by Erik Pendzich on Flickr.)

3 Kings came right out the gate hot from their week #11 victory, feeling the importance of this contest. Apparently, there isn’t a craft lover on the entire squad, so the tents were pure motivation. In the first inning they came out and scored 5 runs and Soft Spot scored 2, but then 3 Kings tacked on another six. Soft Spot, never say die, came back with another 7 runs in the early innings, but The Kings answered those with a few more in the later innings. With the score at 14-12 heading into the eighth Three Kings finished the Yeti’s off blasting in 4 more runs. Matty No Times is a proud manager: “We had Grand Slams, solo homers, we were all over the place!!!” Well, now after two big weekends they settle into 5th place in the North!

The official ruling of the umps was: “If it rolls into the tents on Field One it’s an automatic single, Field Two automatic double.” With only one tiny adjustment after a certain Turkey “accidentally” allowed a grounder to roll into CraftLand and bring back a runner already rounding 2nd to hold him for the single. “You gotta at least make an attempt at the play if possible,” was added to the WSL Official Craft Fair Rules. Anyway, despite a huge bomb from John Louis that nailed the AT 1st base coach in the noggin on the opposite field, Mendoza ends the Nest’s 4 game streak in this match-up and are tied for 1st place in the South with a three win stretch of their own.

AT & Reel 2 Reel proved me wrong and played the real Game of the Week, and guest recapper Andrew Millard of R@R wants to tell you all about it:

“We were down 8 runs in the 5th.  AT was cruising and Reel to Reel seemed doomed!! But our bats finally woke up in the top of  the 7th when we eked out a run. Then in the 8th we tacked on 7 more to tie it up – 13 to 13. Jones had 2 clutch home runs and Greg Todd hit a 3 run homer to even it up.

“On to the tenth!!  We score one in the top of the inning, but in the bottom frame, AT gets a run to tie it up again! Then they dramatically load the bases with one out. Jonsey, our right center fielder, runs to the pitchers mound and suggests we bring in our right fielder, Greg Todd, to play catcher in case there’s a close play at the plate.” (lame.) “Low and behold, AT’s batter grounds it back to the pitcher,  Mark, who throws it to Greg Todd–BUT HE FORGETS THE BASES ARE LOADED. Instead he runs up the 3rd base line and tags the runner coming from 3rd. He then tosses it to Dave Babkow @ 3B, who then tagged a very confused Gerald–WHO FORGOT TO RUN ON BASES LOADED. No one knew what the hell happened but, when the dust settled [there actually was quite a bit of it], we were, miraculously, out of very bad situation.

“Needless to say, we were beginning to feel like it was our lucky day. A pumped up Matt Opalack gathered the team around our bench and declared that he had the winning hit on his bat.  He was right.  He blasted a HR to right center, scoring what would be the winning 2 runs.

It was a win that will go down as one of the most exciting in Reel to Reel history!”

Congrats’s on a great win guys!!

Clems does it again!!! They came through on Breeze’s guaranteed victory over the 2nd Chance 86ers and move to a 3-6 record and are sorta tied for 3rd place in the South…sorta. The Clem’s really seem to be coming together mid-season, so let’s see what they got next week against the leaders of the North!!

TnT vs. Gibson

Over on Field B the Turkey’s Teachers took care of the Gibson for their first W since Week #4. It was good times all around on the softball block for post game boozin’. These two teams might not make the play-offs, but they sure know how to make it a good Sunday, and isn’t that what it’s really all about?!

RBar pulls off a big upset against Good Co in their favorite slot of the day. This was a very low scoring affair in which both teams played solid defense and pitched one hell of a game. Rbar jumped out to an early lead behind Bobby “Slappy” Napp’s seventh homer of the season, (I dropped the ball last week and did not send to Cesar – Bobby’s 2 HR’s from week #11…which TIED him with Godsy for 1st in the HR contest. I can’t apologize enough! Also, I would like to mention here that if the contest ends in a tie between these two, I’m officially calling an arm wrestling match as the tie breaker…you’re welcome, ladies.) Not to be outdone, Good Co would take the lead in the bottom of the fifth on a slicing two-run triple by 2B Stacy, but Slappy would show-up once more in the 6th and smack another long ball for number eight on the season.  The Pinkies yet again would come back and tie it in the eighth on a clutch two-out single by Wally but Rbar would push across one last run created by the speed and hustle of LC Josh Rodriguez to extend the Bums 3 game steak!!

Jake is very surprised Spike Hill is trailing.

Meanwhile, over on Field one Pete’s and Spike Hill slowly drew a crowd as the Candy Store stayed on top with a one run lead for most of the game. All tied up in the bottom of the 8th, Spike Hill scored on a two out hit by Jake to go up 5 to 4 for their fist lead of the day. They held Pete’s in the 9th and squeaked out the win but wanted to give the Candy store this shout out, “Hats off to Pete’s – they deserved to win that game as much as we did.  Two great defensive teams and not a lot of hitting on either side; I actually think Pete’s outhit us.  We should all expect Pete’s to compete for the title this year – that team is solid…” They then finished it off with some complaints about the tents…blah, blah, blah.

Stay tuned for next week’s preview as we finish off our cross-division play.


Editor’s Note: There’s been a few questions in regards to the standings and their accuracy. These are now 100% updated and accurate. If season ended today, this would be your standing. Per the Commish: On the standings when there is a tie in terms of the record, the team with the fewest Runs Allowed gets the lead.
