31 Jul

Christian and Dinger combined to throw nine shutout innings, allowing only six hits and only one baserunner beyond second base, as Cheap Goats walked off with a 1-0 over win over Jack Shack when Jordan hit an RBI single to score Miller in the bottom of the ninth. Both team’s defenses played at an elite level, limiting hits and stranding runners, in one of the best games of the 2021 season. The teams will meet again in the first round of the playoffs in a rematch of the 2020 Wiffle Series.

Christian started for Cheap Goats, and he got out of trouble early. After retiring Adam for the first out of the inning, he allowed a double to Josh D and a single to Turbo, putting runners on the corners. Jack Shack couldn’t capitalize, however, as Christian retired Brian to strand both runners, ending the inning.

Christian led off the inning with a double, putting the winning run on second. Dinger followed with a single, and Christian moved to third, putting runners on the corners with no outs. Jack Shack intentionally walked Brett, loading the bases for Joey with no outs. Joey hit a shallow fly ball to right, which Turbo caught for an out.
