Game 3 - Thin

THE TEAM recovered nicely from the bizzarro loss last week.  Overall THE TEAM is playing well.  There are no clustered errors.  Dave and Natasha are doing a fantastic job pitching.  Everybody is hitting.  In three games THE TEAM is hitting .640 with 11 Doubles, 6 Triples, 3 Home Runs, 8 Walks and only 3 Strikeouts.  The last couple of seasons have been rough so it's nice to get away from Kill Bill horseshit and back to Pulp Fiction.

A League of Their Own was spread thin with only 8 players in the field but in the past THE TEAM has found a way to still lose in that setup.  Sometimes it is distracting to see all that open space.

Not this time.

Eleven players played and eleven players had hits.  Eight players had RBIs.  Doug hit a 3 run Home Run.  Lou had 2 Triples and 2 RBIs.  Aerial went 4 for 4 with an RBI.  The game ended on a nice Double Play.  Peter stomped on third for one out and threw it to Kelly at first who had to leave the bag to make the catch but still managed to tag the runner.

Ball Game!

Right?  That's it right?  I want to leave off Victor's Grand Slam because he gets so tense if his caboose is not properly smooched.  There was a meeting with Roger Goodell and he thinks everything Victor does is fine.  Well OK then.

It was a genuine power shot into left so Victor gets a Sacramento RiverCats souvenir helmet full of nachos and steroids.

Natasha had a steroid-worthy game going 2 for 3 with an RBI.  She let her kindness and freakin' humanity get the best of her and coached up one of the players from the other team.  Kelly drove in two runs and did a great job at first base.  Let's give Kelly the steroids this week.  They are just straight steroids that Kelly herself can bake into exquisite cupcakes.  Save one for Jimmy.  He has been a big help even if he doesn't talk to anybody.

THE TEAM gets the third out and reaches for the bats and this lanky specter wearing #33 materializes in the coaching box.  He is like Bigfoot or something.

Well, it is working
