Despite playing shorthanded, Questionable Outfit racked up 22 hits and Bob hit for the cycle in an 18-7 blowout win over Eastbound & Dahn. Kimble drove in 9 runs, Miller had 5 extra-base hits, and each Questionable Outfit player had at least 7 hits in the game.

Questionable Outfit jumped out to an early lead against Eastbound, and they never looked back. Bob led off the game with a double, and he scored from second when Tom hit an RBI single to make the score 1-0. Miller then hit an RBI single, scoring Tom from first to push the score to 2-0. Bob followed with a single, also scoring Miller from first, and the score was 3-0. Tom singled to put runners on first and third, and Miller drove in Tom with an RBI double to make the score 4-0. Christian, the Eastbound starter, finally recorded an out, but Tom followed with a two-RBI single that cleared the bases, putting Questionable ahead 6-0. Miller was retired for the second out of the inning, but Questionable had taken a huge lead.

Bob started for Questionable Outfit, and he avoided trouble in the top of the first. Christian tripled with one out, but Eastbound couldn’t get on the board, as Bob retired Dustin to strand the runner.

In a very rare occurrence, Christian struck out Bob for the first out of the inning in the top of the second. He then retired Tom for the second out in what would be the only perfect inning for Eastbound in the game.

With the score 6-0, Eastbound cut into the deficit in the bottom of the second. Mo Vaughn singled but was caught out trying to advance to second for a double. Nate followed with a single and moved from first to third on a Christian double. Dustin then emptied the bases with an RBI double, making the score 6-2. Bob then fanned Mo Vaughn for the second out of the inning, and Questionable led by four.

Questionable would make up some of the runs in the top of the third. Miller singled, and he moved from first to third when Bob followed with a double. Tom then drove in both runners with an RBI double, and the score was 8-2. Miller doubled to put runners on second and third, and Bob drove in a run when he grounded out to right for the first out of the inning. Christian then retired Tom to end the inning, and Questionable Outfit led 9-2.

Questionable then turned to the bullpen, bringing Miller to the mound. He retired the first two batters he faced, Nate and Christian.

Eastbound found themselves in a deeper hole after the top of the fourth. Miller doubled, and Bob followed with a two-run inside-the-park homer, putting Questionable ahead 11-2. Tom followed with a solo homer, and the back-to-back jacks made the score 12-2. Miller then tripled, and Bob drove him in with his second homer of the inning, another inside-the-park homer fueled by fielding errors. Christian then retired Tom and Miller to end the inning, and Eastbound trailed 14-2.

Miller pitched his second consecutive perfect frame in the bottom of the fourth, maintaining the twelve run Questionable lead.

Bob tripled to lead off the top of the fifth, but Christian stranded him, retiring Tom and Miller, and the score remained 14-2.

Questionable made another pitching change in the bottom of the fifth, bringing Tom to the mound. He retired Nate and Christian consecutively, and Questionable had sent down seven consecutive Eastbound hitters.

Questionable added insult to injury in the top of the sixth. Bob tripled to start the inning, and Tom drove him in with a two-run homer, his second blast of the game. Two batters later, Bob hit a one-out triple, and Tom drove him in with an RBI single that made the score 17-2. Miller then tripled, scoring Tom to push the lead to 18-2. Christian retired Bob for the second out of the inning, and Eastbound would head into their final at-bat trailing by sixteen runs.

Down 18-2, Eastbound showed heart in the bottom of the sixth. Dustin singled to lead off the inning, and Mo followed with a two-run inside the park homer that made the score 18-4. Nate then doubled, and Christian drove him in with an RBI single that cut the score to 18-5. Christian was called out on the play when he was caught between first and second. Dustin then followed with a solo shot to left-center, and the next batter, Mo, hit a solo homer to right. The back-to-back home runs made the score 18-7, and Eastbound had started a rally. Tom ended it there, however, getting Nate to groundout to left for the second out of the inning, ending the game and giving Questionable Outfit the win.

The win moved Questionable Outfit to 14-3 on the season, and Eastbound & Dahn dropped to 1-16.

W: Bob (3-1)
