Bob homered in his last five at-bats, tying the single-game record, as Questionable Outfit easily defeated Cookies & Cream 12-3.

Joey started Cookies & Cream, and Questionable Outfit battered him in what would be his worst outing of the 2015 season. He got off to a decent start, however, by pitching a scoreless first inning. Bob led off the game with a single, and Joey retired the next two batters to strand him.

Reilly started for Questionable Outfit, and he was near perfect for the first five innings of the game. Joey led off the bottom of the first with a double, but Reilly stranded him, retiring the next two batters to end the inning.

Questionable would jump out to a lead in the top of the second. Mike started the inning with a single, and two batters later, Tom hit a two-run blast to make the score 2-0. Reilly pitched a scoreless frame in the bottom of the second, maintaining the lead.

Bob hit the first of his homers in the top of the third, when he blasted a solo shot to left with one out, putting Questionable ahead 3-0. Reilly continued to roll in the bottom of the third, retiring the side in order.

Questionable continued to add to their lead in the top of the fourth. Reilly doubled to start the inning and moved to third on a Mike single. With no outs and runners on the corners, Bob hit his second homer, a three-run bomb to make the score 6-0. Tom followed with a single, but Joey retired the next two batters to strand him. Reilly pitched another scoreless inning in the bottom of the fourth, and Questionable remained ahead 6-0.

The wheels fell off for Joey and Cookies & Cream in the top of the fifth, as Questionable Outfit would continue their offensive barrage, putting the game away. Bob led off the inning with his third homer, a solo shot, to make the score 7-0. Tom and Reilly each also followed with solo home runs, and the back-to-back-to-back homers gave Questionable Outfit a 9-0 lead. Joey removed himself from the mound, and Cookies turned to their closer, Blose, who came in to pitch relief. He retired the first batter he faced, but Bob followed with his second homer of the inning and his fourth of the game, making the score 10-0. Tom then singled, but Blose got Reilly to fly out to end the inning.

Blose led off the bottom of the fifth with a single, but Reilly stranded him by retiring the next two batters to end the inning. Through five innings, Reilly had retired 10 of the 12 batters he faced with only one Cookies base runner getting past first base.

Questionable added two more runs in the top of the sixth, as Bob would etch his name into the record books yet again. Mike started the inning with a solo homer, making the score 11-0. Bob then came to the plate having homered in his past four at-bats. He continued his dominant and historic performance, crushing a solo homer to deep right field for his fifth home run of the game. The fifth blast tied the previous record held by Ivan, Joey, and Blose. The back-to-back homers put Questionable Outfit ahead 12-0.

Cookies & Cream got on the board in the bottom of the sixth, but it was far too little too late. Blose hit a one-out solo homer, and after a Dinger single, Vassallo hit a two-run bomb to make the score 12-3. Joey and Blose each followed with singles, but Reilly retired Dinger for the second out of the inning, ending the game and giving Questionable Outfit a 12-3 win.

The win moved Questionable into sole possession of first place at 9-5, and the loss dropped Cookies & Cream to .500 at 7-7.

W: Reilly (6-1)
L: Joey (4-2)
