25 May

Brad and Gaurav of Pumice on Slow! celebrate Brad's second bomb of the game against the Caucasians

Holly came within one out of the league’s first shutout, as she and Pumice on Slow! handed the Caucasians their first loss of the season in a 5-1 victory.

Despite getting shelled in record setting fashion in week 3, Pumice on Slow! sent Holly back to the mound against the league’s best team in week 4. She gave up a single to Guthrie to start the game, but retired Les and Frosty to end the first unscathed. Morrison, the league’s only southpaw, went to the mound for the Vaginas and retired the Pumice! side in order in the bottom of the first to keep the game scoreless.

Holly retired Morrison and Guthrie in the top of the second, and Pumice got out their bats in the bottom of the inning. Luke hit his third homer of the season to lead off the inning, and for the second time in week 4, Brad made back-to-back homers when he hit a solo shot of Morrison. Gaurav grounded out for the first out of the inning, but Holly helped her own cause when she hit her third homer of the season, making the score 3-0. Morrison retired Luke to end the inning, but Pumice! had collected all the run support Holly would need.

Holly chopped down Les and Frosty in the top of the third, and Pumice added another run when Gaurav hit a solo homer with one out in the bottom of the third. Through three Pumice on Slow! had a 4-0 lead.

Morrison singled to start the fourth, but was stranded at first when Guthrie and Les were retired in order. Brad hit his fourth homer of the week and his seventh of the season with one out in the bottom of the fourth, and after four innings the score was 5-0.

Frosty singled to lead off the fifth, but the Vaginas stranded another runner when Holly retired Morrison and Guthrie in order. Holly and John flew out in the bottom of the fifth, and the Caucasians were down five with half an inning of play remaining.

Cruising through a shutout performance, Holly gave up a deep fly to Les to lead off the top of the sixth. The ball hit the fence and Les legged out a triple, the first Caucasian runner to advance beyond first base. The next batter, Frosty, grounded out, but the shutout was ruined as Les scored on the fielder’s choice. Up 5-1, Holly gave up a single to Morrison, but fanned Guthrie to end the game and give Pumice on Slow! their third consecutive victory, as the Caucasians suffered their first defeat of the season.

Game Notes:
– Pumice on Slow! had no baserunners the entire game; all five of their runs and hits were solo home runs

Guthrie and Ron duel again as Caucasians hang on to win 3-2

25 May

Frosty of Caucasian Vaginas takes a brushback pitch to the face from Ron of 4 out of 5 Dentists

Guthrie outdueled Ron 2-1 in an Opening Day win for the Caucasians, and he did it again in week 4 as he held 4 out of 5 Dentists to only 2 runs on 5 hits as the Vaginas moved to 7-0 on the season.

Ron pitched a great game, but it started rocky as he fell into a hole against the Caucasians immediately. Morrison, batting in the leadoff spot, singled to start the game, and scored on when Les hit a two run home run to left field putting the Vaginas up 2-0. Ron then got Frosty and Guthrie to fly out to end the top of the 1st.

Down two, Ron didn’t wait long to help himself out, hitting his fourth homer of the year, a solo shot to lead off the game for the Dentists. It looked as if the Dentists would rally early, as Chris and Mike each singled to put runners on first and second with no outs. But Guthrie retired Spads and Ron to end the threat and maintain a 2-1 lead.

Morrison led off the second inning with a solo homer, his eighth of the year, giving the Caucasians a two run lead. Les followed by flying out to the pitcher, but the Caucasians rallied with one out as Frosty single and was moved to third on a Guthrie single. With runners at the corners, Ron got Morrison to ground out, ending the rally and keeping the score at 3-1.

After giving up three hits in the first inning, Guthrie found his groove and was nearly unhittable for the next four innings. Guthrie retired eight of the next nine batters, giving up no runs in the second through fifth innings, yielding only a single to Spads in the third inning.

Ron also settled in after ending the Caucasian rally in the second. He also retired 8 of 9 batters from the third through sixth innings, giving up only a triple to Frosty in the top of the fifth. Frosty was stranded at third.

With both pitchers cruising, the Caucasians maintained the 3-1 lead heading into the bottom of the sixth. Down two runs with two outs to go, Mike led off the top of the sixth with a solo home run, the first of his career, cutting the deficit to 3-2. The Dentists came up short, however, as Guthrie buckled down and got Spads and Ron to groundout in order to end the game. The Caucasians remained undefeated at 7-0, and Guthrie moved to 3-0 on the season.

Dinger of Fish Sticks delivers a pitch to Luke of Pumice on Slow!


Brad was a perfect 3-3 with two home runs and 3 RBI as he led Pumice on Slow! to a 5-4 victory over the Fish Stick’s in the first game of week 4.

Each team sent their ace to the mound as Gaurav was throwing for Pumice and Dinger pitched for the Fish Sticks. Both hurlers got off to a good start, as Dinger retired the Pumice side in order in the top of the 1st and Gaurav retired Adam and Joey in the bottom of the 1st after giving up a leadoff single to Dinger.

Dinger continued to mow down Pumice hitters in the 2nd, retiring Gaurav and Luke consecutively, and Gaurav once again retired consecutive batters after giving up a leadoff single to start the bottom of the 2nd.

Tied at zero, Dinger sent John and Holly down in order to stay perfect through three innings. Gaurav gave up a leadoff triple to Joey to start the bottom of the third, and Blose drove in the first run of the game with a sac fly to deep right field. Gaurav retired Dinger to end the third and keep the score at 1-0.

Gaurav flew out to center field to start the fourth inning, but Dinger’s perfect game bid ended at 3.5 innings when Luke hit a fly ball in between all the Fish Sticks fielders. Joey tried to catch it but came up short and Luke was safe at first with a single. John immediately made the Gay Fish pay for the fielding error with a two-run bomb, his first of the year, putting Pumice on Slow! up 2-1. Brad was inserted into the game for Holly, and delivered back-to-back homers for Pumice when he crushed a homer to center off Dinger. Gaurav flied out to the pitcher to end the threat, but the damage had been done as Pumice was up 3-1 through four innings. Gaurav retired Adam and Joey in order in the fourth to maintain the Pumice lead.

Luke led off the top of the fifth with a single, and moved to second when John grounded out to left field. Brad singled to put runners on the corners, and Gaurav helped his own cause with a single, driving in Luke and extending the Pumice lead to 4-1. Pumice then batted out of order, as John grounded out to end the top of the fifth.

Down three runs, Blose doubled to start the fifth for the Fish Sticks. Dinger followed with a two-run homer, his third of the year, to cut the deficit to 4-3. Gaurav wasn’t shaken, however, as he retired Adam and Joey in order to end the inning.

Luke grounded out to start the top of the sixth, but Pumice added an insurance run when Brad hit a solo homer, his second of the game, to make the score 5-3. Gaurav grounded out to send the game to the final frame.

The insurance run was proven crucial, as Blose hit a solo blast to start off the sixth for the Fish Sticks, cutting the score to 5-4. Gaurav then got Dinger to ground out for the first out of the inning. Adam singled to keep Fish Sticks’ hope alive, but Joey grounded out to center to end the game, giving Pumice on Slow! the 5-4 victory.

Game Notes:
– 3.5 perfect innings by Dinger matches the furthest a game has gone perfect this season
