The Falcons, who aren't a very good team (based on this game) barely managed to squeak out a win with the help of the WMSPL mandated time limit (the tying run was on 2nd!) to defeat Sports Illustrated Play 21-20 on Friday.
SI Play had only 8 of their own players, leaving them with only 3 outfielders per league rules. This can't be a coincidence, but it seems like every time the Falcons play against a team without a full outfield, they either lose, or only barely win. You'd think with all those gaps, they'd score 40. Nope.
Though the Falcons did manage a couple of big innings, SI's killer offence and the Falcons' spotty defence kept the home team in the game right to the very end.
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: Leon: emerging as a high-quality scorekeeper! Clean sheets every time!... Stevie B: no better at 1B than at SS, can you believe he's not 8'7"?... SLF had his second straight error-free inning at 2B, that guy's a superstar (*wanking motion*)... No rest for the crappy, the Falcons play a doubleheader on Sunday, hoping to extend their VP Division lead.

Hey, let's look on the bright side!
That was our third game in a row scoring 20 runs.
Any guesses, when was the last time that we scored 20 before these 3 games?
Middle of JUNE - 16 Games!!

We've got 6 games left, and we've already won more games this season than we did all of last season!
