That was Close

We knew the Burbank Chills were going to improve. They were certainly having a good time. They are, without a doubt, the loudest opponent THE TEAM has ever faced. When we win they seem like a zany bunch that is having a good time. If we had lost then they would have seemed like a bunch of loud-mouthed a**holes. The 13-12 win means they are officially zany although I would guess Lou hates them.

Just a guess

The game started slow until Lou broke it open with a Grand Slam. The Burbank Chills managed to tie the game after a tough 3rd inning. THE TEAM came right back with a 3 run Homer by Peter and an RBI Double by Amy. Lou added another Home Run and it was Hello Sweet Sweet Victory. There was a double play in there too.

THE TEAM batted .607 with 3 Home Runs, 8 Doubles, 3 walks and 3 Strikeouts.

The Lou and Peter Award goes to Lou. He went 3 for 3 with a Walk, 2 Home Runs and 6 RBIs. That sounds kind of weird. This week we are calling it the Peter and Chris Award. Lou gets the Peter and Chris Award.

The Dora Award has to go to Dora for going 3 for 4 with a double. OK Lou gets the Peter Criss Award and Dora gets the Ace Frehley Award. Amy gets the Paul Stanley Award for taking the lead back with the RBI double and Sema gets the Gene Simmons Award...

... Wait a minute

The Randy

That was one of those great games where we get to play a good team but they never really threaten. It's fun and it feels competitive but The Bombers never got close to THE TEAM.

THE TEAM batted .594 with 1 Home Run, 8 Doubles, 8 Walks and 3 Strikeouts. THE TEAM managed to hit that magic mark and score 16 runs. That seems to be the key to victory. Holding The Bombers to 7 runs helps too.

Sema did a good job leading off for the ladies. Beth did a good job at Second Base. The Dora Award goes to Jad who went 2 for 3 with a walk and an RBI.

Really though this game was all about Randy. He hurt himself early but played through the pain. He held down third base as best he could and then did the only thing he could do when it was time to bat. He walked when they gave it to him and he hit perfect line drives that wouldn't require a hard run to get to first. Randy finished 2 for 2 with 2 walk and 5 RBIs. Powerful good!

THE TEAM was shorthanded going into the game but everybody contributed and everybody played hard. That's a great way to spend a Sunday.

THE TEAM - Crashin' and Burnin'

THE TEAM must have been devastated by the loss of Whitney Houston or something. THE TEAM is much better than that. The Fockers scored 11 runs in the first inning. THE TEAM scored zero. It's hard to bounce back from that but we tried. The Swingers were a good team. Either way THE TEAM is now 3-2 and looking Z League.
