Fish Sticks Superb in Field as they Defeat 4 out of 5 Dentists 3-2

6 May

Ron's three singles weren't enough for 4 out of 5 Dentists

4 out of 5 Dentists got a solid pitching performance and a homer from Geoff, but were unable to give him the run support needed to clinch their first victory of the year.

Geoff retired the first two Fish Sticks batters for a scoreless first, and his pitching counterpart, Joey, retired the Dentists in order in the bottom of the first.

The Fish Sticks took the lead in the top of the 2nd with a string of singles. Joey led off the inning with a single and Dinger put two runners on base for Vassallo after he singled. Vassallo plated Joey with a third consecutive single to put the Fish Sticks up 1-0. Geoff then got out of the jam retiring Joey.

4 out of 5 Dentists immediately evened up the score when Geoff led off the bottom of the second with a moonshot to left, tying the game at 1-1. The Dentists followed with two consecutive singles from Spads and Braydn, but Joey got out of the inning without any further damage after retiring Ron.

Both pitchers worked held the opposition scoreless in the third and fourth innings. Blose turned a double play in the third retiring Geoff, and then Ron trying to advance to second base.

With the game tied, Dinger led off the top of the fifth with a single off Geoff. Geoff got Vassallo to fly out to left for the first out, but Joey hit a two run homer to right-center field, driving in Dinger to put the Fish Sticks up 3-1. Blose followed the home run with a triple, but was stranded at third as Dinger grounded out to left field.

Down two runs, the Dentists rallied in the bottom of the fifth to draw closer to the Fish Sticks. Spads started off the inning by grounding out to left field, but three Dentists in a row reached base safely with one out. Braydn singled, followed by a Ron single, and with runners on first and second, Geoff drove in Braydn with a single of his own. With the tying run on second and the go-ahead run on first, Spads grounded out to left field and Joey got out of the jam with the lead.

Geoff retired the side in order in the top of the 6th, and the Dentists came to the plate down a run for their last at-bat. The Fish Sticks made the call to the bullpen in the sixth, bringing in Blose for the save opportunity. Blose got Braydn to fly out to the pitchers mound, but gave up a single to Ron, putting the tying runner on base. But Blose buckled down and got Geoff to fly out for the second out, ending the game, and giving the Fish Sticks the 3-2 win.

Game Notes:
– Blose earned the first save in league history in his first career pitching appearance
– Geoff had three potential home runs hit the tree in left field. Two were caught for fly outs, the third bounced off the tree’s trunk, beyond the fence, and bounced back onto the field for a single.
– Ron had a deep fly ball bounce off the top rail of the fence and bounce back into play for a single.
