Goliath hit his 99th career home run as a Falcon and Cashley had 5 RBI as the Falcons pulled both their heads and a victory out of their asses in game two of a Sunday night doubleheader, defeating the Storm 10-9.
After an emotionally charged win in game one over Xtreme, the Falcons (23-9) exploded in the bottom of the first inning, putting up a five-spot on Dougothy’s measly Porter, and a grand salami by Proven Clutch Hitter Cashley. “Thumb still works!” said Cashley after the game, “I was worried, because lately I hadn’t been able to put much pressure on shaft-like objects, and that has made me sad and frustrated. But this homer proves I’m ready to jack just like before!”
The solid Falcon defence held the President’s Division leaders to just four runs over the first six innings, but then went limp in the seventh. Two singles led to a two-run triple by leadoff hitter Jeff, which was narrowly missed by a diving SLF in right. With Jeff on third and two out, the decision was made to walk perpetual fly-in-the-Falcon-ointment Joey. This was immediately followed by a three-run shot by Lance to put the Storm ahead.
The Falcons got out of the inning without allowing another run, setting the stage for an epic comeback. Facing the meat of the Falcons batting order, the Storm didn’t stand much of a chance. Goliath led off with home run number 99 for his career, followed by three straight singles to load the bases by Papa Bear, Beaver, and Cashley.
Having already spent half a week’s pay on pizza fines on the night, up came Dinner. The Storm outfield was drawn in. The Falcon bench was on the edge of their seats. I wish I could have taken a photo of Mrs. Dinner, because her expression was priceless. Dinner fouled one off. Strike one. The tension was as thick as poutine, and twice as tasty. A swing and a belt! Right field! Way back! Falcons win it! Gatorade baths for everybody!
Game Notes: Dramatic wins are fun… Dewey grass makes for an excellent slip ‘n’ slide… Dougothy made up with Suzy Salvo, and they made beautiful love in the first… “When someone says ‘You’re due!’, it means you suck” – “Coach” Cashley… Half way to free beer…

So let me get this straight. Are you saying that if Ashley's team is down by a goal with under a minute play he will be "pulling his goalie"

Let me be perfectly clear: If this summer hadn't been so unseasonably cold, Ash would have been sitting by himself on one end of the bench, while the rest of the team vomited uncontrolably at the other end.

So let me get this straight. Are you saying. If you bought live poultry from Cash, he would "choke the chicken"
