Senior, Goliath, Tank and Don’t call me Dick all had perfect nights at the plate on an evening with decidedly NOT perfect weather as the waterlogged Falcons defeated the sopping A’s 16-4 on a rainy Wednesday night. Thirteen Dollar Bill led the way, leading the team with three runs scored and Dougothy had two doubles.
The night began with a team meeting to discuss if the game would be rescheduled, as we’ve seen games cancelled due to it being partly cloudy with a chance of awesome. But what’s a little rain? Rivers were forming from the dugouts toward the batters boxes, and the teams played on.
Maybe playing in the rain isn’t so bad, as the Falcons (19-8) jumped out to what turned out to be an insurmountable lead, scoring nine runs in the top of the first inning. Then the bats went on vacation until the fifth, where the team score six more. The Falcon defence didn’t seem to mind playing with wet balls, as there was none of the clownosity we’ve seen previously, even in perfect conditions.
Game Notes: Papa Bear left the game in the top of the seventh with a lower body injury (soaker)… Some old guy was building an ark in the parking lot… Did I mention it was raining?... Watch out for flying bats…

Hey Jimmy "The Greek"
I've made some great bankroll betting the sides and totals on Whitby Men's Slo-Pitch this season. I've used some of your tips...
Have you got any thoughts on the Week 1 NFL lines? They are already posted at many off-shore sites. PS: I dont need Sideline Reporter Timmy telling me to go "All-In" on his Denver Broncos. I think this Peyton Manning guy might just be a one year "flash in the pan".
