Another Doubleheader, Another Sweep

Once again THE TEAM sweeps a doubleheader.  Here are a few things that help make it all extra-spectacular:

THE TEAM is now 6-2 which means we officially have a winning season so let's all get a taste of Crippler Chris heroin to celebrate. 

THE TEAM is undefeated in the second round so the dream of another championship is very much alive.


Game 1 was a snug 11-6 victory over The Goon Squad.  They were nice and we all took our walks (THE TEAM walked 11 times) but we really should have pounded those clowns.  Perhaps we were saving it for The Dancing Homers.

The Dancing Homers don't suck but they sure don't win that much either.  The two times we have played them we have taken a giant s**t when its time to hit.  When THE TEAM played them last season there were only 3 extra base hits in a 23-13 loss.  THE TEAM played them in Game 2 this season and batted .500 and scored only 8 runs.  Well THE TEAM finally punched through with 1 Home Run, 3 Doubles, 2 Triples and  .710 average.  It ended with a sweet 5 run rally and Jeff driving in the winning run for a 19-18 win.

Steroid tacos for Natasha who went 3 for 4 with 3 RBIs and steroid tacos for Jeff who also drove in 3 including the game winner in the clutch.  Go get a contact high at the Hollywood Bowl you two.

Very few errors, solid base running, capitalized on the Dancin' Homers' fielding mistakes, many extra base hits, strong first inning, clutch last inning, solid pitching, we took our walks, had big defensive plays (Summer, that's two weeks in a row)...Now we just gotta keep the bats hot and the errors down and we'll be in the Championship.

I must say I love Natasha's bat. Doug was awesome at third and Rick did a fantastic job on first. I still think there's a magnet in his glove. What a great double header!

Oh, and by the way, I have set a record that will never be broken: 3 pitches, 3 outs. Your move, Natasha ;-)
