assignment Falcons Lose Third Straight
Sunday 6:30PM July 18th, 2021The A's completed the sweep of the Falcons with a walk-off 11-10 victory in game two of Sunday afternoon's doubleheader.
The Falcons continue to allow SLF to apply his taint to the batting order, and in game 2, the SLF-tainted line up did what an SLF-tainted line up do: The Falcons put up doughnuts in the first 4 innings. A late surge grabbed the lead, but it wasn't enough.
The A's weren't able to score in the bottom of the first, but managed a four-spot in the second. A doughnut in the third, then one in the fourth. A doughnut in the fifth, then four more in the sixth. A pattern had developed! Would it hold?
In the fifth, the Falcons offence finally arrived. They scored the first 6 batters of the inning, put up 7 in total, and took the lead. As noted previously, the A's couldn't score in the bottom of the fifth, and in the top of the sixth the Falcons two-spot put them up 9-5.
The A's were not giving up, however. They scored four, and tied the game at nines going into the seventh.
With two on, and two out, the Mattural's single scored Grahambo to take back the lead. The Falcons would take the slimmest of leads into the bottom of the seventh inning.
The bottom of the A's line up were the stars of this game. Doug, Justin, Larry and George accounted for 8 of the A's runs, including the tying, and winnings runs.
Game notes: With the loss, the Falcons drop below the .500 mark for the first time in over two years... The A's sent 41 batters to the plate in both games... Levi's batting average appears to be tied to the length of his hair. He's hitting .529, ahead of perennial .600 hitters such as Miner Leaguer, Cowboy, SLF and Barry Guerrero Jr... The Falcons have scored 69 runs on the season. Nice.
