Live by the Sword, Die by Your Crummy Pitching

There were a lot of walks and a lot of hits in this game.  Altogether THE TEAM had 55 plate appearances.  That's a lot of running around.  Peter did a lot of running around.  He hit for the cycle going 6 for 6 on the day with 5 RBIs.  Peter really needs a nickname.  Of course Peter is a fine name, (Peter Parker, Saint Peter etc.) but shouldn't we be calling him "Tech" or "Dr. Badass" or something?


The game started with Hot Sunday hanging a couple runs in the top of the first.  Lou, Peter, and Doug hit Home Runs.  Natalia added an RBI and it was 8-2 THE TEAM.  After that Hot Sunday kept chipping away.  They took their walks (which must have been lots of fun), got some hits and took advantage of errors to eventually make a game out of it.

Hey you know who else may need to be called Dr. Technical Badass is Aerial.  She went 4 for 4 with a Walk and 4 RBIs.

Here are some other zesty numbers.  Ten players played.  Nine players had hits.  Ten players got on base.  Nine players got on base more than once.  Eight players had RBIs.  There were a total of 8 Walks and ZERO players struck out.

Nice Job!

In the end Doug took a Walk and Aerial came in to score the winning run in a 22-21 Victory.  It will be nice to get back to The Championship game but there was something anti-climactic about winning the game on a Walk.  It was certainly the right tactical move but it felt like the grandstand in the old Tom Slick cartoons.

ANY other team I would hate ending on a walk. But Shit Sundae deserved to walk in the winning run. Maybe between now and next season they might consider trying to win games by hitting.

I am very proud of the way The Team played. Now the doctor did say that the only way I will heal properly is if you guys win the championship game. True story....
