Joey pitched a five hit shutout and Vassallo went 4-4 as the Fish Sticks topped the Vaginas 5-0, snapping a four game losing streak.

With Joey on the mound for the Gay Fish, Les and Morrison of the Caucasian Vaginas were retired in order in the top of the first. Les made the start for the Vaginas, and Joey led off the bottom of the first by flying out to left. Blose singled for the first hit of the game, but was stranded when Les retired Dinger ending the first.

Frosty led off the top of the second with a groundout to left, but Les got the Vaginas first hit by doubling to deep center field. However, he was left standing at second when Morrison grounded out to end the inning.

With the score tied at zero, Vassallo led off the bottom of the second with a solo homer making the score 1-0. Les minimized the damage by retiring Joey and Blose to end the second inning.

Joey retired Frosty and Les in order in the top of the third and the Fish Sticks got the bats out again in the bottom half of the inning, as Dinger led off with a single. Vassallo followed with a two run blast to left field, his second consecutive home run, extending the Fish Sticks lead to 3-0. For the second consecutive inning, Les prevented further damage by retiring Joey and Blose to end the third inning.

Morrison and Frosty were retired in order to keep the score 3-0 after three and a half innings, and Les got into a jam again in the bottom of the fourth. He gave up consecutive singles to Dinger and Vassallo putting runners at first and second with no outs. But for the third straight inning, he retired Joey and Blose, each stranding two runners, and the score remained 3-0.

Les led off the fifth with a single, and Morrison followed with another single to put runners on first and second. With no outs, Frosty grounded out to Blose, and as Les ran from second to third, he rounded third too hard, and was caught off the base with the ball at the mound, resulting in a double play to end the inning.

Up three runs, Dinger grounded out for the Fish Sticks to start the bottom of the fifth, but Vassallo followed with another solo homer, his third in the game and fourth hit in as many at-bats, extending the lead to 4-0. With one out and no runners on, Joey took Les deep to make back-to-back home runs, and pushing the score to 5-0. Les then retired Blose to end the fifth.

Down five runs and at their last at-bat, the Vaginas rallied. Les led off the inning with a single, but took a spill rounding first and fell hard to the pavement, cutting his hands, arms and legs. It was the most violent spill of the season so far. He brushed himself off though, and advanced to second on a Morrison single. With no outs, Frosty grounded out to left, but put two runners in scoring position for Les. But after a long at-bat with many foul balls, Les struck out to end the game, resulting in a 5-0 shutout for the Fish Sticks.
