Bob and Morrison had big games at the plate as Questionable Outfit took a big lead early and earned an easy 19-0 win over the Ham Slams, who were playing with only one player from their regular starting lineup.

The Slams sent Riley to the mound, leaving holes throughout the outfield that Questionable Outfit would take advantage of early and often. Questionable Outfit started the top of the first with four consecutive singles from Reilly, Bob, Morrison, and Reilly Jr., which resulted in a 3-0 lead. After a Reilly triple, a Bob double, and a Morrison two-run homer, the lead was 6-0. The next two batters singled, which Bob followed with a 3-run jack, and Questionable Outfit had pulled ahead 9-0. Reilly Jr. pelted a two-run blast after a Morrison single, making the score 11-0, and after Reilly and Bob hit back-to-back doubles, the score was 12-0. Morrison, hitting left-handed, struck out for the second out of the inning, ending a barrage that gave Questionable Outfit a 12-run lead after the top of the first.

Bob started for Questionable Outfit, and after allowing a single to Riley with one out in the bottom of the first, he retired the side without permitting a run.

Following the disastrous first inning, the Ham Slams enlisted the reclusive Mo Vaughn, making his first EWL appearance in years. His fielding prowess helped to minimize the damage throughout the rest of the contest. Questionable Outfit would tally three singles from Reilly Jr., Reilly, and Bob in the top of the second, but the Ham Slams escaped without allowing more runs, maintaining the 12-0 deficit. Bob would retired the side in order in the bottom of the second, including a strikeout.

Riley pitched a perfect top of the third, with Mo Vaughn recording both putouts. Unfortunately for the Ham Slams, Bob did the same in the bottom half, as the Slams couldn’t generate a hit.

The flood gates opened once again in the top of the fourth as Questionable Outfit would add to their lead. Bob doubled, followed by a Morrison two-run bomb, making the score 14-0. After the Reilly brothers each singled, Bob crushed a three-run shot, extending the score to 17-0. Morrison followed with a single, and Reilly Jr. hit his second homer of the game, and the score was 19-0. Questionable would tally two more singles in the inning, but with the help of Mo Vaughn, the Ham Slams avoided falling behind by twenty runs.

The Slams couldn’t cut into the Questionable Outfit lead in the bottom of the fourth, as Bob retired the side in order.

Questionable Outfit collected four hits in the top of the fifth, but they were unable to add any runs to their total due to poor base-running and the fielding of Mo Vaughn. The Slams continued to struggle at the plate in the bottom half of the inning, and the score remained 19-0.
