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.
