Bob added to his wiffle legacy, breaking his own record for home runs in a season with his 29th, 30th, and 31st blast in a 16-6 Questionable Outfit win over the Ham Slams

One season after setting the single-season record for home runs with 30 in 2014, two-time defending Wiffler of the Year Bob eclipsed his own record when he hit his 31st homer of the 2015 season in his final at-bat against the Ham Slams. The wettest and windiest game of 2015 kept some balls from flying over the fence, but Bob parked three home runs over the right field wall in the game, and the third one was the record setting blast. Questionable Outfit cruised to an easy 16-6 win over the Ham Slams, and they clinched the #1 seed in the playoffs for the third consecutive season.

The Ham Slams sent Tim to the mound to start, and he retired Bob to start the game, but the next hitter, Reilly, hit a solo homer to put Questionable up 1-0. Tim then retired Mike to end the inning.

The Slams bounced back against Questionable Outfit’s starter, Mike, in the bottom of the first and tied the game. Tim led off with a double and moved to third on an Adam single. With runners on the corners, Dan grounded out to left, but Tim scored on the play to tie the game at 1-1. Mike then retired Steve to strand Adam at second.

Questionable pulled ahead in the top of the second, starting when John McEnroe led off the inning with a solo homer to make the score 2-1. Bob followed with a double and moved to third on a Reilly single to put runners on the corners. Mike then hit an RBI double to score Bob, and John McEnroe followed with a two-RBI double that cleared the bases, putting Questionable ahead 5-1. Reilly later singled to put runners on the corners with one out, but Tim retired Mike to avoid a disastrous inning. Tim had reached his innings limit for week 9, and the Slams would call Adam from the bullpen in the third.

Adam hit a one-out solo homer in the bottom of the second that cut the Questionable Outfit lead to 5-2, but the Slams rally ended there as Mike retired Dan to end the inning.

With one out in the top of the third, Bob hit is 29th homer of the season, a solo shot that made the score 6-2. Mike retired the Slams in order in the bottom of the third, and Questionable led by four runs.

John McEnroe hit his second homer of the game in the top of the fourth, a solo homer with one out, and Questionable’s lead grew to 7-2. Mike sent Adam and Dan down in order in the bottom of the fourth.

Questionable Outfit blew the game open in the top of the fifth, scoring four runs as the rain continued to fall. McEnroe led off the inning with a double, and Bob followed with a two-run homer, his 30th of the season, tying his record-setting mark from 2014. Reilly then doubled, and Mike followed with an RBI triple to score him, making the score 10-2. McEnroe hit a deep fly to right, Mike tagged and scored on the play, and the sacrifice fly extended the Questionable lead to 11-2. Bob then doubled and moved to third on a Reilly double, but Tim retired Mike, stranding two runners.

The Slams showed some heart in the bottom of the fifth, narrowing the deficit with a few runs. With one out, Tim hit a solo homer, and the score was 11-3. Adam then singled, and Dan followed with a two-run homer to left-center, making the score 11-5. Steve followed with a double, but Mike cut the rally short, retiring Tim to end the inning.

Up six runs, Questionable piled on an additional five runs of insurance in the top of the sixth. McEnroe led off the inning with his third homer of the game, making the score 12-5. Bob doubled, and Reilly crushed his second home run of the game, a two-run bomb that put Questionable ahead 14-5. Mike followed with a double and scored from second on a McEnroe groundout to make the score 15-5. Sitting at 30 homers on the season, Bob came to the plate in what would likely be his final at-bat of the game (and perhaps the season). In dramatic fashion, as has come to be expected, Bob planted a pitch deep over the right-center field wall for his third homer of the game and 31st home run of the season, breaking his own record only a year after setting it. There was little fanfare or photography due to the driving rain, but Questionable celebrated at the plate as Bob etched his name into the record books yet again. Tim retired Reilly to end the inning, and Questionable had pulled ahead by eleven runs 16-5.

Adam led off the bottom of the sixth with a solo homer, his second of the game, and the Ham Slams pulled within ten runs. Mike then struck out Dan and retired Steve to end the inning and the game, as Questionable won 16-6.

The win moved Questionable Outfit to 13-5 on the season, and they clinched the #1 seed and home field advantage throughout the 2015 EWL playoffs. The Ham Slams dropped to 6-12 and will need help to reach the #3 seed in the playoffs.

W: Mike (5-4)
L: Tim (3-4)
