assignment 🍻 FREE BEER! 🍻
Tuesday 9:30PM May 28th, 2024
After a 29-6 victory over the A's, the Falcons enjoyed free beer at the cooler. It was their sixth win in a row.

After dropping the season opener to Broadway, the Falcons haven't lost since. The 6-1 start to the season matches 2019, when the Falcons only lost one of their first nine games, including one tie. We know how that season ended.

Game Notes: After taking the Falcons' all time lead in triples on Sunday, Cowboy just keeps on running. THREE more three-baggers in this game widened his lead over Sr... Grahambo hit for the cycle, the first Falcon to do so since Poutine on August 2, 2023... Barry Guerrero Jr had a pretty good game as well, going 6-for-6, scoring 6 runs... Handsoff is breaking out the big, new stick, hitting three doubles... Sr has reached base 100 games in a row... The standings at the beginning of the season are suspect at best, due to multiple rain-outs and lots of missing scores, but the win put the Falcons in first place in the President's Division.

assignment Falcons Win Fifth Straight
Sunday 9:30PM May 26th, 2024
Only a Tuesday matchup with the A's stands between the Falcons and free beer after a terrific ballgame to close out Sunday's doubleheader that ended with the Falcons on top, 17-16.

The Falcons' D picked up where they left off after their game against The Crew, holding Triple Play to a doughnut and only one hit in the top of the first inning. The offence was also still clicking, except when there was a runner on third base. In the bottom of the first alone, the pizza fund collected $15 on three missed opportunities with a runner only 65 feet away. In total for the night, the team stranded that runner SEVEN TIMES. A record? Maybe? Anyway, Cowboy led off the game with a triple, and despite his best Riverdance routine, couldn't score on Barry Guerrero Jr's subsequent ground out. Dunner walked, though unintentionally because it's May. Jr doubled to cash a duck, and Shohei followed with his own RBI single. Million Dollar Bill accrued the second SR3B of the inning when he couldn't cash Jr from third despite reaching base successfully. Teets ended the inning with a $10 groundout, socking a hard grounder to first where the first baseman scooped it, tagged Billy and jumped on first for a SR3B-GIDP inning-ender.

In the second, Triple Play's bats arrived, and they scored three runs on four singles and a sac fly. Down one, the Falcons erased the deficit in short order with a MAX6. Dr J doubled, Hands off singled and Cowboy cashed them both with his second consecutive triple. Cowboy's 51st career three-bagger put him at #1 all-time for the Falcons. Sr is feeling very Sr. Dunner, Jr and Shohei followed with single and Million Dollar Bill closed off the inning with his [checks notes] 14th career triple.

After holding Triple Play to another doughnut in the third, the Falcon bats continued to rack up the hits. After Teets' groundout to open the frame, five straight singles and Dunner's double put up four runs. The inning ended on yet another SR3B when Jr hit what should have been a routine sac fly to centre, but Barry Guerrero Jr was gunned down at the plate on a tremendous throw. Kudos to all the cannons Triple Play has amassed in their outfield.

Triple Play responded in the fourth, scoring 3 to begin chipping away at the Falcons' lead. The Falcons could only put up a singleton in the bottom of the frame. Taking advantage, Triple Play put up five more in the top of the fifth, all with two out by stringing together six hits. Stranding a runner on third for the fifth time in the game with less than two out, the Falcons only managed a single run. Going into the sixth, the lead had narrowed to 14-11.

The visitors' bats cooled off for the sixth. The Falcons clutch offence put up three much needed insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth, despite stranding a runner on third twice more. Triple Play put a scare into the home side, scoring five of the six runs they needed to tie the game. The home fans exhaled.

Game Notes: Homie's notes: "New SS? Does Graham have some competition?"... The Pizza fund/uniform subsidy gathered a walloping $45 in this game... One win away from free beer... Without looking, who has a higher batting average: Cowboy, Jr or Dr J? Thanks to a red hot Sunday where he went eight-for-eight, Dr J is batting .778 (.810 OBP), matching Jr and seventy points higher than Cowboy... Shohei is batting .750, for those keeping track.

assignment Falcons Win Fourth Straight
Sunday 8:00PM May 26th, 2024
Sunday's late doubleheader began well for the home Falcons, notching a 21-5 victory over division rival The Crew.

Approaching game time, an ominous message appeared in the Falcons' What'sApp chat: "Where's Steve?". The team's longtime leadoff man had yet to appear with game time looming. Would an emergency line up shuffle be imminent? Would Jr (see game notes) finally be upgraded to the coveted lead off spot he's clearly been gunning for? Would such a change evolve into animosity between Cowboy and Jr and come to the inevitable end in a rap- or dance-battle to decide who would lead the team into battle going forward?

No.

Cowboy made a very Barry Guerrero Jr-esque entry with moments to spare, and you can forget you read that last paragraph, which I'm sure you'd already wished you could have.

Anyway.

The Crew began the game with a couple runs in the top of the first inning, thanks to a Sean RBI single and a sac fly from Scott "no one else on the scorecard is named Scott but Homie put his last name anyway" Sonley. Undaunted, the Falcons responded with four of their own highlighted by a Million Dollar Bill 2-run double, and in what was only the second weirdest thing to happen on the scorecard, a sac fly by Teets where the momentum of the first baseman catching a routine pop up barely clearing the infield cutout caused him to drift out of bounds and thus award each runner on base a free bag.

After exchanging doughnuts in the second (not LITERALLY, Liz), the Crew put up a run on three hits to narrow the gap to only a run. The first six Falcons up in the bottom of the third hit singles to score four. A two-bagger from Barry Guerrero Jr cashed another duck, and following a curious mid-May regular season IBB to Dunner, Jr finished off the MAX6 with a single. After three, the Falcons were up 10-3 and never looked back.

I'm only going to mention the goings on in the bottom of the fourth inning due to three significant happenings. The inning began with Shohei walking, though not intentionally. That was followed by four straight singles, and then the chaos. To begin, Sr and Teets ended up sharing 3B for a brief moment when Sr had his first "senior moment" and overdid the running thing and tried to advance to an already occupied base on a Dr J single. Then: Is it possible to be awarded a sac fly when the ball is never caught? Seems so: Handsoff, with the bases loaded and less than two out, popped a ball up on the infield. The umpire rightly called the infield fly, and Handsoff was out. The ball dropped, however, and two runs scored. Thus, you have a unicorn like event: a two-run sac fly where the ball neither left the infield, nor was caught at all. The inning ended the MAX6 when Dunner hit a 1-run solo home run with two runners on base. Only the mythical 5-run homer is rarer. It was the Falcons' first dinger of the season.

Game Notes: For those scoring at home, we have new nicknames to remember: Long time Skinny Little, uh, "Falcon" SLF is now simply Sr, and new candidate for leadoff hitter Skinner is now Jr... Homie's scorecard commentary on Sr's baserunning gaff: "WTF? Look!"... For The Crew, the only other notable batting order entry besides Scott "Two Names" Sonley was Kyle "Sweater"... An impressive day at the plate for rookie Hands off, going 2-for-3 with a sac fly and four ribbies... Always great to see new fans in the bleachers for the game.

assignment Falcons Win Third Straight
Tuesday 8:00PM May 21st, 2024
The Falcons remained undefeated on weekdays with a convincing 25-13 victory over Coulas on Tuesday evening.

Neither team seemed to have the defence going early. Coulas scored five of their first six batters in the top of the first, and stranded their MAX6 man on third. The Falcons sent eight men to the plate and scored the first six for what's as close to an immaculate offensive inning as you're going to see.

The teams exchanged doughnuts in the second, but not without Miner Leaguer hitting a double and trying this move, which "failed" for the first out of the inning.

Coulas struggled at the plate in third, scoring none, and the fourth and fifth innings, scoring only a single run in each. The Falcons fared a bit better, beginning the third inning with three consecutive doubles leading to a four-spot, and Billy Joel walked into the bar. In the fifth, the Falcons' bats really came alive. Six two-baggers with a few singles scattered about put up a 10-spot, and it was nine o'clock on a Saturday.

Game Notes: The Falcons have yet to hit a home run in 2024... At 3-1, the Falcons are tied for fourth in the President's Division... Yet-to-be-scheduled pizza night got a healthy fund injection, with the team totaling $25 in fines... The last Falcon with more RBI than hits in a season was Beatty in 2023. Seventy-one hits, 86 RBI... Every Falcons hit a double... Except Cowboy.

assignment Bad Hop Marrs Face, Mood
Wednesday 9:30PM May 15th, 2024
Reigning WMSPL MVP Richard Lee was taken to hospital after a bad hop on a terribly groomed infield hit him in the face in the bottom of the first inning in an eventual 23-8 Falcons victory.

The game was delayed for several minutes as Richard lay on the grass behind second base, not exactly motionless, but he wasn't doing cartwheels either. Barry Guerrero Jr, who hit the routine ground ball that should have resulted in a routine groundout, left the game to escort Richard to the Oshawa hospital ER, where he might actually still be waiting for treatment.

The injury occurred two batters into the bottom of the first inning, after Greenthumb had opened the scoring on a 3-run bomb by Slater. After Cowboy had somehow only singled to start the bottom half of the inning, Barry Guerrero Jr hit an innocent ground ball up the middle in a clear attempt to injure the pitcher, as Falcons do. The pitcher evaded the slow roller, and Richard ranged to his left to make the play. A really bad hop sent the ball straight up into his face with a sickening thump. Former WMSPL President Doom, officiating the game, immediately called time out, and Cowboy reluctantly decided not to take third on the play. Richard eventually walked off under his own power because it was a facial injury, not his legs. Barry missed a couple innings and a plate appearance because, as the scorecard describes it, "Barry gone for 2 innings for almost killing someone". On Greenthumb's side, Richard's absence was noted as "NEARLY DIED :(" (yes, including sad face emoticon).

After that, it doesn't seem appropriate to celebrate a well-played game by the home side. Briefly: 14 Falcons showed, for the first time in who-knows-how-long. Beatty hit a triple! Shohei is batting .833 after going 3-for-3, scoring three runs and driving in two. Skinner is knocking at the lead-off spot's door, and actually managed to pull a ball.

Game notes: The Falcons scored 23 runs without the benefit of a dinger... The dugout is oddly silent with no Poutine present, but Todd WAS there so you can't win 'em all... Homie to Poutine: "Sucker", for some reason... Greenthumb's roster has a "Rod" and a "Todd", so is only missing a "Ned" to complete the Flanders trifecta... Shohei's ERA skyrocketed in the top of the sixth inning likely due to confidence issues in the middle outfield backing him up. He switched to a proven strategy of "let them score so much we run out of time and have to revert".
