In an historic and record setting night, the Caucasians exploded for the biggest offensive performance in the history of the EWL, scoring 15 runs in one inning en route to beating Downtown Bobby Brown 22-4.

The Caucasians looked impressive with the bat against the Ham Slams earlier in week 3, but no one could have predicted the orgy of offense that would come in the third inning against Bobby Brown. They came into the game on a 2-game winning streak, and sent Ron to the mound to start. After Brad singled to lead off the game, Ron retired Helal and Mark in order to strand the runner at first and end the inning.

Holly started on the mound for Downtown, and she got off to a fine start when she retired Morrison and Frosty consecutively in the bottom of the first. It would be the only inning in the game in which the Caucasians failed to score.

Ron rolled through the top of the second, as Gaurav and Holly were sent down in order to keep the score at 0-0.

Holly got Ron to fly out to the mound for the first out in the bottom of the second, and then the Caucasians gave a sneak preview of what was to come. With one down, Guthrie hit a solo shot, putting the Caucasians up 1-0. Morrison followed with a single on a fielding error, and Frosty took advantage, blasting a two-run bomb, moving the score to 3-0. Holly stopped the bleeding, temporarily, by getting Ron to fly out to the mound for the second time in the inning for the second out.

Brad grounded out to left for the first out of the inning, but Bobby Brown responded with one out when Helal hit a solo homer to center, his third of the day, cutting the score to 3-1. Mark grounded out to right for the second out, and Ron escaped the inning with minimal damage.

The bottom of the third inning will go down in history as one of the most impressive displays of wiffleball ever seen. A combination of wiffle bats destroying the ball and poor fielding led to a record-breaking inning. Guthrie led off the inning with a solo blast, his second of the game, moving the score to 4-1. Morrison followed with a home run, making back-to-back homers, and the lead was 5 runs for the Caucasians. Frosty followed with a double, and then Ron drove him in with a two-run blast, the Caucasians’ third of the inning, making the score 8-1. With no one on and no outs, Guthrie singled, and moved to second when Morrison singled, putting two runners on. The next batter, Frosty, crushed a three-run homer to deep left field, and the score was 11-1. All four Caucasian players had homered in the inning, and there was still no one out. After giving up 10 runs on 10 hits, Downtown removed Holly from the mound and went to Brad. His luck was no better. The first batter he face, Ron, singled for his second hit of the inning, and scored when Guthrie hit his second homer of the inning, making the Caucasians lead 12 runs. Morrison followed with a single, his third hit of the inning, and moved to third when Frosty doubled. With two runners in scoring position, Brad finally recorded the first out of the inning when Ron flew out to the mound. Prior to the out, the Caucasians had reached base safely 11 consecutive times, shattering the record of 8 that they tied in their previous game. All 11 base-runners also scored. Although an out was recorded, two runners remained on base, and Guthrie drove them both in with a single, making the score 15-1. With Guthrie on first, Morrison followed with a two-run home run, his second homer and fourth hit of the inning. With the score 17-1, Brad was pulled from the game for staff ace Gaurav, who had two innings of eligibility left. With the bases empty, the first batter he faced was Frosty, who singled for his fourth hit of the inning. Ron followed with a triple, scoring Frosty from first and making the score 18-1. Guthrie then doubled, his fifth hit of the inning, scoring Ron from third and giving the Caucasians an 18 run lead. With Guthrie on second and one out, Morrison grounded out to Brad in left field, and the most prolific offensive inning in the history of the EWL had come to an end. The Caucasians totaled 15 runs on 16 hits in the inning, with 11 hits and 11 runs coming before a single out was recorded.

With the score 18-1, Downtown was way behind, but had not given up. Gaurav was retired for the first out of the inning, but Bobby Brown finally got some hits off of Ron. Holly singled, and moved to second when Brad followed with a single. With one out and runners on first and second, Helal singled, and Holly scored from second base to cut the score to 18-2. Runners remained on first and second, but Ron got Mark to ground out to Frosty in right for the second out of the inning, stranding two.

Gaurav remained on the mound in the bottom of the fourth, and the Caucasians continued to pile it on. Ron led off the inning with a single, and moved from first to third when Guthrie followed with a single. The next batter, Morrison grounded out to left for the first out, but Ron scored on the play, making the score 19-2. With Guthrie on second and one out, Ron hit a two-run bomb, pushing the score to 21-2. Guthrie followed with a double, but Gaurav stranded him at second when he got Morrison to ground out to left for the second out of the inning.

Down 19 runs, Bobby Brown was quiet in the top of the fifth. Ron retired Gaurav and Holly in order for a scoreless inning.

There was no need for insurance runs, but the Caucasians managed to manufacture one in the bottom of the fifth. Downtown put Helal on the mound in his first pitching appearance in the EWL, and the first batter he face, Ron, flew out to left field for the first out. The next batter, Guthrie, singled with one out. The hit was Guthrie’s ninth hit in nine plate appearances. Morrison followed with a triple, scoring Guthrie from third and making the score 22-2. Ron singled on a fielding error, and the Caucasians had runners on the corners with one out. But Helal avoided another disastrous inning, as Guthrie flew out to right, failing to go a perfect 10 for 10 in the game.

Downtown Bobby Brown would need to score 20 runs in the top of the sixth to extend the game, and they tried hard to get them. Brad led off the inning with a solo homer, and the score was 22-3. Helal followed with a single, but was caught out when he tried to go from first to third when the next batter, Mark, doubled. With one out and a runner on second, Gaurav doubled, scoring Mark, and cutting the score to 22-4. Bobby Brown had scored multiple runs in an inning for the first time in the game, but the rally would stop there. Ron retired Holly, who flew out to Guthrie in center, to end the game.

The Causasians 18-run victory was littered with record-breaking performances, and the win moved them into sole possession of first place in the EWL standings at 4-2. The loss dropped Downtown Bobby Brown to last in the league at 2-4.

W: Ron (1-1)
