12 Jun

Questionable Outfit celebrate at home after one of Miller’s two homers against Eastbound & Dahn

Miller allowed only three hits in a complete game win, and also went 3-for-6 with two homers and five RBI to lead Questionable Outfit to an easy victory over Eastbound & Dahn. Bob and Rairigh each added five hits, and Tom had three extra-base hits and drove him four runs as all four Questionable Outfit players turned in big games on offense.

Miller rolled through the top of the first inning, retiring Nate O and Christian in order. The Questionable offense scored big in the bottom of the first, giving Miller all of the run support that he would need.

Bob led off the bottom half of the inning with a single, and Tom immediately put Questionable Outfit ahead with a two-run blast to left off Eastbound & Dahn’s starter, Christian. Mike followed with a single, and although Miller then lined out for the first out of the inning, a series of throwing errors allowed Mike to score on the play, making the score 3-0. Bob then hit a solo homer, putting Questionable ahead 4-0. Christian finally escaped the inning, retiring Tom, who grounded out to left for the second out of the inning.

Miller retired Nate C and Stove (filling in for Eastbound) to make quick work in the top of the second.

Rairigh led off the bottom of the second with a double, but Christian avoided further damage, retiring Miller and Bob to end the inning and strand the runner.

Miller retired Nate O and Christian in the top of the third, and he had retired the first six batters of the game without allowing a hit.

Christian matched him in the bottom of the third, sending Tom and Rairigh down in order, and the score remained 4-0.

Eastbound would get their first hit in the top of the fourth, and they also got on the board. Stove doubled with one out, and Nate O drove him in with an RBI single, cutting the deficit to 4-1. Miller then retired Christian to end the inning.

Questionable immediately made up the run differential in the bottom of the fourth. Miller led off the inning with a solo shot to right-center, making the score 5-1. Bob followed with a single, but was caught trying to extend the hit into a double, making the first out of the inning. Tom then doubled, and he scored from second when Rairigh hit an RBI double to make the score 6-1. Miller then tripled, scoring Rairigh, and Questionable led 7-1. For the second consecutive time in the inning, Bob would single, but was pegged out by Nate trying to extend the hit into a double. Eastbound had become the first team in years to record two outfield assists in one inning.

Miller got back into a groove in the top of the fifth, retiring Nate C and Stove in order. He’d get more insurance runs from his offense in the bottom of the inning.

Rairigh tripled with one out, and Miller followed with his second homer of the game, a two-run shot that put Questionable Outfit ahead 9-1. Bob then doubled, and he scored from second on a Tom RBI double that made the score 10-1. Mike followed with an RBI double to score Tom, and Questionable led by ten runs. Christian retired Miller for the second out of the inning, and Questionable led 11-1 heading into the final frame.

Nate O led off the top of the sixth with a shot off the wall, but when he tried to make the hit an inside-the-park home run, Tom fired the ball into the mound, catching Nate between third and home for the first out of the inning. Miller then retired Christian for the second out, ending the inning and the game, as Questionable Outfit held on to win 11-1.

The win moved Questionable Outfit to 7-2 on the season, and the loss dropped Eastbound & Dahn to 2-7.

W: Miller (3-2)
L: Christian (1-3)
