Morrison’s 3 Home Run Game Launches Caucasians Past Fish Sticks

6 May

Morrison hit 3 home runs in a win for the Caucasians

Nursing an Achilles injury, Morrison blasted three home runs as he led the Caucasian Vaginas to a 7-1 win over the Fish Sticks in the week 2 opener.

The Fish Sticks put their ace Dinger on the mound as the two undefeated teams took the field in the first game of the week. The Vaginas immediately opened up on Dinger, as newly acquired Jim and alternate captain Les got on base with singles in the top of the first. Then Morrison strode to the plate and crushed a mammoth blast to left to put the Caucasians up 3-0 early. Dinger then retired Frosty to end the inning.

With team captain Guthrie out for the week with a wedding (see Wifflecast), Frosty took the mound for the Caucasians. Frosty retired the first two Fish Sticks batters for a scoreless first.

The Caucasians picked up where they left off in the second inning, as Les knocked another single and scored on Morrison’s second bomb in as many at-bats, putting the Vaginas up 5-0 through two innings.

Frosty shut-down the Fish Sticks in the bottom of the second, and the Caucasians added an insurance run in the top of the third when Les hit his first home run of the season, extending the lead to 6-0.

The Fish Sticks finally got on the board with a solo blast from Vassallo to lead off the bottom of the third. Blose was stranded at second after hitting a double, and the Fish Sticks went into the 4th trailing 6-1.

After giving up a single to Frosty to start the 4th inning, Dinger got into a groove, retiring five of the next six batters. Unfortunately for the Fish Sticks, Frosty got into a groove on the mound for the Vaginas as well. After Vassallo’s home run in the third, Frosty yielded only two hits the rest of the game, as the Fish Sticks were unable to match their week 1 output. The Sticks managed only one run on five hits as Frosty notched the complete game win.

The Caucasians added one additional run when Morrison slammed his third homer of the day, a solo shot in the sixth. Frosty struck out Blose to end the game, giving the Vaginas a 7-1 win and moving them to 3-0 on the year.
