Monday 9:30PM July 2nd, 2018The Falcons avenged their earlier loss to Coulas with a 15-8 win on Monday which saw both teams short on the bench.
Even with the rearranged line up, the Falcons failed, for the 9th time this season, to score in the top of the first inning. Four Falcons came to the plate in the first, and zero runs were scored.
Poutine, who was at Woolco buying the shirt pictured at right, didn't sign out for this game and was charged a full pizza. The Falcons appreciate your contribution to the team fund. Sources close to Poutine report that he was upset that one time each season the team has to play on the Monday of a long weekend.
Coulas scored two in the bottom of the first inning, and again, the Falcons came to the plate for their second at-bats while trailing. The middle of the order, which was supposed to be the top of the order, answered the bell and pounded eight straight hits before recording an out and when they took the field to defend in the bottom of the second, they lead 6-2.
Clay scored for Coulas in the bottom of two, and we had a nail-biter on our hands. A Bruce Banner double in the top of 3 highlighted a 2-run effort. Banner, it should be noted, is already counting consecutive wins toward that 6-win Free Beer milestone (never mind that coming into this game, the Falcons had won a whopping ZERO in a row).
The Falcons D (where has this been all season?) held Coulas to delicious doughnuts in the third, fourth and sixth innings. A six-spot for the visitors in the top of the seventh added some much needed insurance to close this one out.
Two Home Runs In One Inning Watch: The last time a Falcon hit two home runs in one inning was August 29, 2012.
Free Beer Watch: It's been since June 7, 2016.
(The Falcons' Free Beer Watch is brought to you by Bruce Banner)
Game Notes: Broadway's Ryan pitched an inning for Coulas to ready himself for Nationals... Coulas, with eight of their own players, used two call ups... Looking forward to seeing some photos from this game up on the League's Instagram account... The Mattural, who came out to watch, is now 1-1 in games observed.
The Hot (Take) Corner: Wanna know who the real winners are after John Tavares signed with the Leafs for 7 years and $77 million? Rogers and Bell. The two telecom giants, who own Sportsnet and TSN, respectively, now have every excuse to produce a 10-hour "Free Agency Frenzy" show for July 1 every year, pointing to 2018 as proof that "SOMETHING MIGHT HAPPEN!" Now if only Tavares is traded on deadline day 2021, it'll be Hockey Watch 24-7 on both networks.
Things Poutine meant when he texted to say "I didn't realize we actually had a game on a long weekend which is just stupid", Ranked:
1. I forgot to look at the website to see we had a game.
2. I didn't add the Falcons schedule to my phone's calendar.
3. Legally, I'm not allowed to drive myself to the park tonight.
4. Since Ash isn't signed out, I'm not coming. I hate that guy.
5. I'm at a baby shower and can't be there tonight.
6. The Admirals scheduled a surprise practice tonight.
7. Carly-Rae Jeppsen concert.

Nice win Falcons!
So there’s a fox that patrols the neighborhood, presumably eating bunnies and squirrels that are otherwise much friendlier to humans. Wife and I saw the fox hunting in the K1 outfield Mon afternoon... was going to mention prior to game time but didn’t want to distract an already unpredictable Falcons D. Good job not getting eaten!
