After being shutout for the first time in 129 games (and only the second time in franchise history), Questionable Outfit bounced back in game two of the Wiffle Series, taking an early lead and riding Bob’s arm and bat to victory, evening the series at one game each. Questionable Outfit had not been shutout since game three of the 2013 Wiffle Series before being blanked in game one, but got their bats out in game two, as Bob homered twice, and Tom and Miller each added homers. Bob was in control on the mound, allowing only two runs on five hits, both solo homers to Erich.

Bob took the mound for Questionable Outfit, and using a somewhat new delivery, he was in command early. He retired Joey and Erich in order in the top of the first, and he provided his own run support in the bottom half of the inning.

After struggling to plate runs in game one, Bob set the tone early for Questionable Outfit in game two. He led off the game with a solo homer to deep right-center, putting Questionable Outfit ahead 1-0. Later in the inning, Mike would double with one out, but Dinger limited the damage to a run, retiring Miller to strand the runner and end the inning.

Dinger singled with one out in the top of the second, but Bob stranded him, retiring Joey to end the inning with the score 1-0.

Questionable added to their lead in the bottom of the second. Bob led off the inning with a double, and Tom followed with a two-run homer to left, putting Questionable ahead 3-0. Mike followed with a single, but when Miller flew out to right, Mike was caught in between first and second, and the double play ended the inning with Questionable Outfit up three.

Cookies & Cream got on the board in the top of the third when Erich led off the inning with a solo homer, making the score 3-1. Bob retired Jordan and Dinger to end the inning, and Cookies had cut the deficit to two runs.

Questionable Outfit immediately made up the run in the bottom of the third. Bob started the inning with a solo homer, his second of the game, and Questionable led 4-1. Two batters later, Mike singled with one out. Miller followed with a hit off the fence, scoring Mike from first to make the score 5-1. Miller attempted to make an inside-the-park home run out of the hit, but was caught between third and home, ending the inning with Questionable Outfit leading by four runs.

Tom singled with one out in the bottom of the fourth, but Dinger stranded him, retiring Mike, and the score remained 5-2.

Bob cruised through the top of the fifth, sending Joey and Erich down consecutively.

Dinger doubled with one out in the top of the sixth, but Cookies & Cream, and especially Joey, couldn’t crack Bob. He retired Joey for the fifth consecutive time, stranding Dinger at second and ending the inning and the game.

The 6-2 Questionable win in game two evened the best-of-seven series at 1-1. Cookies & Cream will serve as the home team for games 3 and 4.
