Three Falcons had perfect nights at the plate, Goliath and Papa Bear crushed dingers, and Senior hit a triple (!) as the Falcons achieved the free beer milestone in an 18-11 defeat over 2012 WMSPL Playoff Champions Hanet Plastics in the second game of a Friday night doubleheader.
It was a test of wills in the beginning, as Hanet jumped out to a big early lead, scoring five in the top of the first inning. The Falcons (18-7) came back with two of their own in the bottom half to close the gap slightly, but Hanet kept pouring it on putting up their own deuce in the top of the second to lead 7-2.
At this point, the Falcon offence had had enough of the shenanigans. They scored six in the second, two in the third, one each in the fourth and fifth and put up six in the bottom of the sixth. The Falcon defence held Hanet to only four more runs after the second inning to close this one out.
Game Notes: Mama Bear and Doggy Bear were in attendance… The Falcons scored in every inning… Papa Bear’s jack was OppoTaco (barely)… Big Cat, flashing the leather at first base, got his uniform dirty in a diving catch of a liner… NO rhymes with GO… Free beer was deferred until pizza night on Sunday by an executive decision by the sponsor, who was tired of the Falcons waffling… Waffling is some kind of cooking term, right?... Fo’ Shizzle continues to sacrifice the body at short… Papa Bear should consult Tank regarding specs…
