assignment Falcons Complete Season Sweep Of Xtreme
Monday 9:30PM August 15th, 2016
Million Dollar Bill and Poutine had 4 RBI each as the Falcons completed the season sweep of the league's best overall team by the unlikely final score of 23-13. Xtreme had already used up their allotment of 20-15 games this month.

If you were betting on a great game for the home side, you got one! Unless you had Xtreme under 6.5 runs in the top of the first inning, that is. The visitor jumped out to a crushing 7-run lead after only half an inning, and the Falcons could have rolled over. But they didn't! In the "RACE TO EIGHT" (whatever that is), the Falcons attacked right back in the bottom of the first with 8 of their own to take a lead they wouldn't relinquish. G3, after re-jigging the line up to yield more runs, lead off the bottom of the first with an incredibly selfish Porter, his new line up immediately paying dividends. Two doubles, and SLF's short lived team leading third triple of the season later, and the Falcons sent 12 men to the plate in the first.

Teets dominated the top of the second, snagging a come back liner and striking out Xtreme's lead-off man to end the inning.

In the bottom half, the Falcons sent another 12 men to the plate, scoring 9 (thus boosting the Falcons OVER 10.5 runs for the game) and putting this game out of reach.

Odds are these two teams will meet again in the playoffs, where things don't bode well for the Falcons when they face Vice President's Division teams they've swept in the regular season.

Inside-the-park Home Run Watch: The last time a Falcon hit an inside-the-park home run was July 23, 2012.
Game Notes: Dinner: 4 total bases, which is UNDER 5.5... No moms in attendance for this one, but that didn't stop Pou from harassing the Falcons' lone season ticket holder... Would you pay $3000 for a scorekeeper?... Beaver must have been stuck in the Canadian Domain... Poutine made two attempts at an SLF impression from right centre, and on both attempts threw the ball into the soccer field. "It was wet," said Pou... Big, BIG double header coming up this Sunday, as the Falcons face two tough opponents in the Shifters and A's. So if you want to be the LIFE OF THE PARTY, come on out and support your favourite team!
