The Falcons welcomed Beardo back and watched him hit the ball all over the field in a 19-7 win over Direct Elevator on Tuesday night.
The Falcons jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first, but quickly gave that back by allowing Direct a three-spot in the bottom of the second. Four of their own in the top of the third gave them the lead back, but it quickly dissipated when Direct put up four in the bottom of the fourth.
Trailing 7-6 going into the top of the fifth, the team summoned their mettle, and sent 15 men to the plate. They scored ten and took the lead for good. Solid defence held Direct to no runs for the remainder of the game, and the team put up another blip in the seventh to complete the twelve-run victory.
Game Notes: Good crowd for a Tuesday… Brief appearance by Mrs. Dinner, who didn’t say anything controversial enough to merit mention in the recap… Fo’ Shizzle, bringing his own cheering section… SLF, Beardo love new bats… Does the team play more relaxed without the threat of pizza fines?...
