THE TEAM - The Moment it All Went Back to Hell

That was a tough loss. Our defense has been so strong all season but not last Sunday. We gave up 14 runs in two innings and couldn't make it back from that. It sucks a little extra because we found our groove and didn't allow any more runs after those 14 but we batted a season low .469 for the game so bitter defeat was ours to choke on.

That means we are 6-2 overall and 2-1 in the second half of the season. I tried to look and see what the Riverside Cafe 86ers record was but the Burbank website was showing us Women's Fastpitch standings from Fall 2009. What bunch of idiots. So we get to guess whether or not our post season championship fantasy went straight to hell on Sunday.

A scoop of ice cream in a Blue Milton Bradley mini-helmet goes to Chris who went 3 for 3 with 4 RBIs. In one game he added 156 points to his batting average. He also made two sweet plays for outs at home plate.

A scoop of ice cream in a Pink Milton Bradley mini-helmet goes to Kristin. She went 1 for 2 but found the patience to draw her first two walks of the season and had no strikeouts.

Overall it was a tough loss. And now we don't even know if anybody is going to turn in the enrollment package for fall season.

Lou you've got to be the all-time MVP for THE TEAM. Most of this blog is one giant love letter to you. I'm just trying to spread it around.
