Questionable Outfit were the betting favorites heading into their 2013 Wiffle Series matchup with Cookies & Cream after earning the #1 seed and cruising through the first round of the playoffs. However, they were shocked in a stunning four game sweep at the hands of Cookies & Cream, as Cookies celebrated their first title, drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon on the wiffle diamond in front of them.

Questionable have been on a mission all of 2014, hoping to redeem themselves and make up for the disappointing performance in the 2013 championship series. After sweeping Eastbound & Dahn in the first round, they watched Cookies & Cream narrowly escape the Ham Slams to force a rematch in the 2014 championship.

Questionable Outfit would once again enter the Wiffle Series as the heavy favorites. This year they added Morrison, a key cog for the 2013 Cookies & Cream team, while Cookies added Blose, the star of the 2011 and ’12 Fish Sticks’ teams. Cookies are looking to repeat as champions, while Questionable Outfit seek their first title and a spot in wiffleball history. The two best teams had once again earned their way to the final series, and Questionable Outfit would land the first blow in game 1.

Reilly, perhaps the best pitcher during the 2014 regular season, started on the mound for Questionable Outfit. Cookies & Cream would play without Guthrie, one of the best postseason performers in EWL history and the MVP of the 2012 and 2013 Wiffle Series.

Dinger led off the 2014 Wiffle Series with a bang, crushing a solo homer to left field, putting Cookies & Cream ahead 1-0 early. Reilly retired the next two batters to end the inning without allowing another run.

Dinger was named the starting pitcher for Cookies & Cream, and he breezed through the bottom of the first, retiring the side in order.

Reilly got back on track in the top of the second, pitching a scoreless inning. The score remained 1-0.

Questionable Outfit would even things up in the bottom of the second. Morrison led off the inning with a single, and he moved from first to third when Reilly followed with a single. Tom followed with a deep fly to center field, and Morrison tagged and scored to tie the game at 1-1. Dinger retired the next batter, Bob, to strand the runner and end the inning.

Cookies & Cream pulled back ahead in the top of the third. Blose led off the inning with a solo homer, making the score 2-1. Reilly then retired the next two batters to avoid further damage.

Morrison doubled to lead off the bottom of the third, but Dinger maintained the lead, retiring the next two hitters to strand the runner.

Cookies would add to their lead in the top of the fourth with another Blose homer. With one out, he crushed a solo shot to right-center, making the score 3-1. Cookies couldn’t extend their lead, as Reilly retired Joey to end the inning.

Down 3-1, Questionable had looked impotent halfway through the first game of the series. However, like they had all season, they found a way to explode for a big inning, and they would take the lead in the bottom of the fourth. Bob led off the inning with a solo homer, making the score 3-2. Morrison followed with a double, and Tom later singled to put runners on the corners with one out. Bob would then crush his second homer of the inning, a three-run blast, putting Questionable Outfit ahead 5-3. Morrison singled, and it looked as if Questionable would open up a huge lead, but Dinger retired Reilly, holding the deficit at two runs.
