13 Jun

Bob retired eleven of the first thirteen Cookies & Cream batters he faced, earning the complete game win for Questionable Outfit. He also had three extra-base hits in the game.

Questionable Outfit tightened their grip on first place in the EWL standings with a 7-2 win over Cookies & Cream in week 5. Bob pitched the complete game win, allowing only two runs on four hits, and also went 3-for-6 with a double, a triple, and a home run. Tom and Miller also homered for Questionable Outfit, and the loss pushed Cookies & Cream back to .500 and into a tie for second with the Ham Slams.

Jordan took the mound for Cookies & Cream, and the very first batter he faced, Bob, blasted a solo homer to right, putting Questionable Outfit ahead 1-0. Jordan wasn’t phased, however, as he then retired Tom and Rairigh to end the inning without allowing further damage.

Bob allowed a one-out double to Guthrie in the bottom of the first, but Cookies couldn’t tie the game, as Erich was retired for the second out of the inning, stranding the runner at second.

Jordan rolled through the top of the second, retiring Miller and Bob in order. Bob matched him in the bottom half of the inning, as he sent down Joey and Jordan consecutively.

Questionable would add a run to their lead in the top of the third. Rairigh doubled with one out, and he scored from second on a Miller RBI single that put Questionable ahead 2-0. Bob followed with a double, putting runners on second and third with one out, but Jordan retired Tom, stranding two runners and ending the inning.

Bob continued to mow through Cookies in the bottom of the third, retiring Guthrie and Erich in order.

Jordan pitched another solid frame in the top of the fourth, retiring Rairigh and Miller consecutively. Bob did the same in the bottom of the fourth, retiring Joey and Jordan, making it eight out of the first nine hitters that he had faced.

Up 2-0, Questionable added another insurance run in the top of the fifth. With one out, Tom crushed a solo homer to left, and Questionable had pulled ahead 3-0. Jordan then retired Rairigh to end the inning.

Rairigh makes a leaping catch in left field. He had seven putouts in addition to two doubles and two runs scored.

Erich would single with one out in the bottom of the fifth, but Cookies couldn’t advance him, as Bob retired Joey to strand the runner at first and end the inning.

Up 3-0, Questionable would take a commanding lead in the top of the sixth. Bob tripled with one out, and he scored when Tom followed with an RBI double, making the score 4-0. Rairigh then doubled to score Tom, and Questionable led 5-0. Miller followed with a two-run home run, and Questionable had pulled ahead 7-0. Jordan ended the inning by retiring Bob, and Cookies trailed by seven runs heading into their final at-bat.

Cookies had only reached base safely twice through the first five innings, but they showed some life in the bottom of the sixth. Guthrie homered with one out to make the score 7-1, and Erich followed with a solo shot, so that the back-to-back homers had cut the Questionable lead to 7-2. The rally would end short of a miracle, however, as Bob buckled down, retiring Joey for the second out of the inning, ending the game.

The win moved Questionable Outfit to 8-2 on the year, and the loss dropped Cookies & Cream to 5-5.

W: Bob (3-0)
