Sunday 6:30PM July 9th, 2017The Mattural was only a double short of the cycle, and 4 Falcons went deep to secure a victory over President's Division rival Storm on Sunday evening by a score of 23-10.
The original headline on the Storm website was apt: A Tale Of Two Games. After the second inning, it looked like this game would be more of the same when these two teams meet: Storm scoring 20+ runs, and the Falcons throwing it around defensively and an eventual Falcons loss. SLF lead off the first inning with his 29th career triple, tying him with Beaver for the all-time Falcons lead. He wasn't on third base very long, as Yeah Teets scored him with a sacrifice fly. Storm put up a 5-spot in the bottom half. Another sac fly in the top of 2 for the Falcons, and another 6 for Storm in the bottom of the second, and the rout was on.
Except it wasn't. And that's the thing about baseball. Bad teams can have great games, and great teams can fall off a proverbial cliff. A month ago, Storm beat the Falcons by a nearly identical score. Maybe the Storm recap will enlighten us as to why, but the Falcons defence held for the rest of the game, allowing not a single run.
Poutine will tell you it was the pitching. He'll tell you that because he came on in relief in the bottom of the third and shut the door.
Million Dollar Bill crushed a Porter, and that was followed up later by 3-run blasts by the Mattural and Yeah Teets and a grand slam by Poutine. L-Paq contributed with two solid singles late to extend innings.
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: SLF's second triple of the game gave him the Falcons' all time lead, which will surely be bested by the Mattural or Poutine any day now... Hope Duran is OK after that relay by Pikachu... WMSPL home run leader Joey hit a 3-run homer of his own, shouldn't we have walked him?... Things aren't all bad for the Falcons, the overall team OBP is .610

If the Storm scored 5 in the first and 6 in the second - how did they end up with 10 runs?
I know that WMSPL has some stupid rules...did they institute a negative run rule?
Let me guess - WMSPL Rule 32.4 "If a team hits 3 HR's in a game (using the same bat) that team is automatically assessed a penalty of minus one-run. Before every game, each team is responsible for naming every bat the team might use. Each player is responsible for shouting out the name of the bat before the first pitch can be thrown in the at-bat. If a specific bat is responsible for 3 HR in a single game, the team is penalized."
Here is my list of suggested names for bats:

That should forgive any typos.
And who are you, anyway? My wife?
