assignment Falcons Get Back On Horse
Sunday 9:30PM August 20th, 2017For the second time this season, the Falcons played Xtreme. For the second time this season, the Falcons scored 20 or more runs against Xtreme. For the second time this season, SLF hit an inside-the-park home run against Xtreme. For the second time this season, the Falcons played a complete game, offensively and defensively (if not inning-ly), coming away with a 26-11 victory to close out their Sunday night doubleheader.
Xtreme played some VERY interesting defensive shifts against the Falcons offence, but none of them seemed to be effective. The Falcons hits seemed to be constantly landing in the gaps. They scored in every inning, highlighted by an 11-run second that ate a lot of the 85-minute clock, and included superstar-in-the-making Jeff with a chance to end the two-home-runs-in-one-inning watch. Xtreme did what Xtreme does, and scored 6 in the fourth to make things interesting, but lady luck was on the Falcons' side in this one. The tables could easily turn in the next meeting.
Two Home Runs In One Inning Watch: The last time a Falcon hit two home runs in one inning was August 29, 2012.

Coming up for the Falcons: Coulas on Wednesday, then a doubleheader against Hanet, then Xtreme two days later. Is it me, or did the Matrix change something?...
