7 Aug

Kyle of Eastbound & Dahn attempts to peg Bob with the ball as he approaches third base. Bob went 2-for-4 with two singles, a sac fly, and two runs scored in the game 2 Questionable Outfit victory.

Questionable Outfit moved one step closer to clinching a spot in the 2017 Wiffle Series with a 5-2 win over Eastbound & Dahn in game two of their best-of-five series. After getting beaten soundly in game on of the series, Eastbound showed life in game two, keeping the game close throughout. Ultimately, Questionable Outfit’s hitting and Eastbound & Dahn’s weak defense led to a second consecutive victory for Questionable, as Tom and Mike each went 3-for-5 to lead them on offense. Mike and Bob split the pitching duties, allowing only two runs in the victory. Questionable Outfit can close out the series in game 3 and advance to the Wiffle Series for the fifth consecutive year.
