assignment Falcons Take Game One
Friday 8:00PM August 25th, 2017The umpire didn't show up, and there weren't even any fistfights as the Falcons defeated a short Hanet squad that was missing almost all their best by a final score of 17-10.
Hanet was able to field 9 of their own men, but with one suffering from a severe knee injury they decided to play him at catcher and only 3 in the outfield. It says a lot of Hanet that they could play a 3-man outfield and limit the Falcons to only 17 runs. It's no wonder they're second overall.
The Falcons exploded for 6 in the top of the first, highlighted by Poutine's 3-run jack, to the excitement of the snack-sized Poutines in attendance as well as mamaPou and papaPou. Million Dollar Bill hit a 2-run triple in the third inning where the Falcons scored 5, including the eventual game-winning runs. Yet another jack by New Jeff in the fifth was the cherry on top.
Two Home Runs In One Inning Watch: The last time a Falcon hit two home runs in one inning was August 29, 2012.
Game Notes: Miner Leaguer, sick of stopping at first, had two doubles... Where was the umpire? Seriously?... There was no umpire... Pikachu is quitting his job as of Monday to go straight into umpiring school... Duran "This Way To The Beach" Spray did not hit a triple
