"On the plains of hesitation lie the blackened bones of countless millions who at the dawn of victory lay down to rest, and in resting died." - Adlai E. Stevenson.
Hesitation cost the Falcons a tie in this game, as SLF waited a hair too long to pull the trigger in an attempt to cut down the runner tagging from third in the fourth inning, resulting in a 7-6 loss to 2012 WMSPL League Champion Hanet on Sunday night.
The Falcons (2-2) were coming off an emotional nail-biting victory vs. Xtreme in the finale of the Mid-season tournament, a game that ended with a spectacular mouth-open catch by Beaver to rob Xtreme's Drew of a walk-off game winning home run in the bottom of the seventh. Perhaps drained from playing 5 games in a 24-hour period, the Falcons came out flat and allowed a big inning to Hanet (2-1) who played solid defence in the win.
Thus the Falcons begin their four-game road swing 0-2. With no time to rest, they take on the A’s on Wednesday evening.
Game Notes: Dinner remains merely tied for first in triples… With the amount of moaning and groaning coming out of the Falcons dugout, you’d think they were running a brothel in there… Papa Bear was rocking the Iron Mike Murphy memorial gray pants again… The Falcons are .500 for the first time this season… Senior was spotted in the parking lot at 2:00 in the morning, surrounded by empty Doritos bags…
