assignment Falcons Undefeated In Nine
Sunday 5:00PM August 20th, 2023The Falcons increased their unbeaten streak to nine games with a 21-15 win over division rival The Crew to open Sunday's doubleheader.
Stop me if you've heard this one before: The Falcons only had 9 players. Here's another joke: an outfielder had to play first base, and boy, did it ever look like an outfielder was playing first base. Unlike when Dunner played in the infield in July, SLF really looked out of place. Fortunately his forgotten assignment on the grounder to Flash didn't end up costing the team any runs. But this isn't a trend anyone would like to see continue.
As usual for an SLF tainted line up, the Falcons had a hard time getting going offensively. Through three innings, they could only put up 4 runs, which left them trailing by one. A three-spot by The Crew in the top of the fourth had the Falcons down 8-4.
Fortunately, the SLF taint fizzled out at that point. Pizzaco led off the inning with a single to turn the line up over, and the offence went to work maxing out in the inning to take a 10-8 lead. The Crew responded, tying the game at 10s in the top of the fifth. But a three-run fifth gave the Falcons a lead they would not relinquish, and a very impressive eight-run sixth (where every hit seemed to find a hole) put the game away.
Game Notes: The victory officially gives the Falcons six wins in a row... In a rare complete game pitching performance, Million Dollar Bill threw almost 30% strikes.
