"H" League as in "H"ome - Game 5

We finished the first round of H League 4-1. Naturally that means we are in 3rd place. Salem Heat took first place so they are on their way to playing the second half of their season in G League. Yes we just beat them up 17-6 but there is some kind of weird tie breaker in place that I am not going to bother to understand. It looks like this:

Salem Heat (4-1) beat the Jensen Warriors - lost to THE TEAM
Jensen Warriors (4-1) beat THE TEAM - lost to Salem Heat
THE TEAM (4-1) beat Salem Heat - lost to Jensen Warriors

It feels a little like we got screwed but I guess somebody was going to have to be Texas and somebody was going to have to be Oklahoma. (That probably only made sense to three people on THE TEAM but it has to do with the Big XXII championship... who cares)

THE TEAM batted only .484 with 9 walks in game five. That is by far our worst collective effort at the plate this year. Lucky for THE TEAM the players that were hitting were really hitting.

That means a scoop of ice cream in a Pink Milton Bradley mini-helmet goes to Destanie. She went 4 for 5 with 5 RBIs. Clearly she is hitting for two.

Lou went 4 for 4 with 3 doubles and 3 RBIs but he already had a scoop of ice cream and this award needs to be spread around so screw you Lou. (Maybe that was too rough, all I'm saying is that it was a great game but once you get the award you cannot win it again. Although CJ split one and was awarded another one but... you know what I'm going to stick with screw you Lou)

Chris gets the scoop if ice cream in the Blue Milton Bradley mini-helmet. He had a rough inning right toward the end but he is Mr. Reliable when he is pitching.

It looks like the tie-breaker was the number of runs allowed in the games the three teams played against each other.

I also thought it was really weird that we were in 3rd place after we were doing so well.

Their ranking system is bogus!!!
