Down seven going into the last inning, the Falcons felt something in their loins. Lacey described it as "a sneeze, only better", and Million Dollar Bill mentioned something about a dead donkey. In the end though, no amount of will was enough on this glorious Sunday afternoon, as the Falcons dropped a heartbreaker to arch-Sean's-Division-Rival Xtreme 9-6.
This game turned into a pitcher's duel early. Runs were only scored in three innings, the boxscore showing so many doughnuts SLF thought he'd died and gone to Krispy Kreme. The Falcons didn't score in the top of the first, causing the ever-predictable Senior to begin griping about the top of the order's run production. Xtreme plated three.
The Falcons came within one in the top of the third, scoring two batters from the bottom of the order. That was as close as the Falcons would come. Xtreme put up six in the bottom half, and ran away wih this one to the back corner of their moms' basement, from which they write the recaps for their site.
