Game 3 - Trying to Suck

If records were kept for sloppy defensive wins this one would be for the books.  There were errors and break downs in communication and dogshit throws and walks and all that.

It didn't matter though.

THE TEAM hit .692 and scored 23 runs.  Sloppy is inexpensive when THE TEAM hits like that.  It was another one of those proud moments with 12 players playing and 10 players having RBIs.  Peter went 4 for 4 with a Double, a Triple and 3 RBIs.  Dave went 3 for 3 with a Double and 3 RBIs.  Lou went wild going 3 for 4 with 2 Home Runs, a Double and 7 RBIs.  Victor the swear jar millionaire drove in 2 on a Triple.

The ladies were neck deep in bad assery.  Dora went 3 for 3 with an RBI.  Natasha went 2 for 3 with a Double and 2 RBIs.  Natalia went 2 for 2 with a walk and 2 RBIs.  Aerial went 4 for 4  with an RBI.

There were a couple of two out rallies that also need to be acknowledged.  Those really show that THE TEAM is through screwing around.

The Google image search was part of an effort to get a Weird Al joke in there but that went into the tank just like the Ivan Drago joke last week.

Game 2 - What?

We could call it Game 1 since it is the first game of the season because of the rainout but that doesn't matter.  The important thing is that THE TEAM won 17-11.

Even though it is the same as last season, let's look at the roster anyway

1 Aerial
3 Lou
8 Maddie
10 Melody
12 Natasha
15 Natalia
18 Rick
19 Doug
24 Peter
25 Dora
27 Victor
30 Kelly
38 Dave


Twelve of those players played in Game 2 or 1 or whatever.  All 12 had hits and 8 players had RBIs.  When everybody contributes THE TEAM is tough to beat.  There were Home Runs by Lou, Peter, Victor and Doug.  These were legitimate Homers too not some clumsy outfielder rolling around in the grass.  Doug had 5 RBIs.  Victor almost had 5 RBIs but got hosed up on a bad call.  Come on Blue!  Melody knows to tag up on a fly ball!

Dora went 3 for 4 with an RBI.  Natasha went 2 for 3 with 3 RBIs.  Maddie collected her first hit in a League Game.  Aerial ended it all with a great shoe string catch.

I was doing Google Image searches of Dolph Lundgren because there was going to be an Ivan Drago joke in there somewhere that didn't really come together.  They can't all be Home Runs
