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
