Guthrie Named PBR Wiffler of the Week for Week 2 of First Round Playoffs

5 Aug

After pitching the first and only perfect game in the history of the EWL, Guthrie has been voted the Pabst Blue Ribbon Wiffler of the Week for the second week of the first round of the EWL playoffs. He joins Blose as the only two-time winners of the PBR Wiffler of the Week.

Guthrie’s historic performance finalized a three-game sweep by the Caucasian Vaginas of Pumice on Slow!, sending them to the first ever EWL Wiffle Series. Only a week prior, Guthrie threw a one-hitter in Game 1, baffling Pumice! hitters and giving his team an early lead in the series. One win away from clinching a title series berth, Guthrie had total command on the mound in the most dominant start in league history. He retired all 12 Pumice! batters in order. At the plate, he went 2-5 with a home run, a single, and an RBI. He also registered 4 put-outs. He received only a few more votes than Vassallo, who turned in one of the most clutch performances in league history, coming through for the Fish Sticks in key moments of games 4 and 5. Guthrie has now been named PBR Wiffler of the Week twice, he was selected as a member of the All-EWL team, and he was the 2011 Pitch King.
