assignment Falcons Win Second Straight
Sunday 8:00PM July 30th, 2023In a blink-and-you-miss-it speed run through game one of Sunday’s double header, the Falcons emerged victorious over the Isotopes, 12-8.
The Falcons’ defence was on point, holding the Isotopes to one hit through the first four innings. The Isotopes were no defensive slouches themselves, holding the Falcons to only 4 runs through four. In slo pitch. As a familiar umpy announced the top of the fifth being the open inning, mouths were agape that we’d gone so far in so little time.
Grahambo provided the game winning runs in the top of the fifth with a majestic 3-run bomb, and the Isotopes answered in the bottom half, scoring 6 of their 8 runs to come to within one run with two innings to go.
Looking to extend their lead in the sixth, the Falcons went *fart noise*, *fart noise*, Flash two-bagger, *fart noise*, and scored exactly zero. The Isotopes didn’t fare any better in the bottom of the sixth, garnering only a single and matching the Falcons delicious doughnut for delicious doughnut.
In the seventh, the Falcons did manage to put the game out of reach, scoring 5 highlighted by Dunner’s triple. The Isotopes came out swinging in the bottom of seven. Justin singled, and Bill bombed his second dinger of the game, but the offence petered out after that.
Game notes: Bases on balls for SLF and Goliath preserved their on base streaks at 87 and 76, respectively… Dr J came THIS CLOSE to a panic attack. He did his best Junior impression arriving early to secure the coveted third-base dugout only to have to wait until 7:57 for the rest of the team to arrive from the parking lot… Cowboy, breaking the sound barrier to arrive on time was also surprised to find the whole team in the parking lot with less than 5 minutes to game time… The game was completed in only 65 minutes.
