From Colonel Rhino...
Tweeners win in an 18 inning affair by a score of 3 to 2. smashed a bases-empty 'big-fly' and the Rhinos went down without a fight in the bottom of the 18th. Running out of relievers the Rhinos pitched Gonzalez for 8 innings; despite the HR in the 18th Gonzalez only gave up 3 hits and 2 walks.
Felix Hernandez tossed a and designated hitter Mark Reynolds lofted one into the 'cheap seats' beating the Rhinos 4 to 3. The Tweeners took the lead for good in the eighth by scoring 3 off the Rhinos vaunted bull pen.

The Fungoes win the NERDD with the Drillers coming in second. The Drillers will be the second wild card in the playoffs.
From our girl in Tulsa...
In a series reminiscent of previous year’s titanic struggles, the DVs and waged an epic series that took the entire 7 games to decide. (Not really – I couldn’t get these piece of crap games done fast enough!).
Drillers take 4 of 7- here’s a breakdown:
1 – Drillers win 12-4. Haren K’s 10, Longoria collects 3 hits and Drillers punish their former teammate (and now former DV) .
2 – DVs win 2-1 behind Cahill and 5 relievers that hold the Drillers to 6 hits
3 – DVs utilize the resurgent Derek Lowe to a 1-0 shoutout. DVs only have 3 hits off of former Polish Olympian Mark Rzepczynsk-ksnyzcpezR, but one of them is Ian Kinsler’s 36th home run. Kinsler remarked after the game: “This is better than winning the World Series with the Rangers in 2010”
4- Drillers win 7-4 as the Drillers hammer Roy Halladay for 6 runs in 4 IP. Jeter goes 3 for 3 and the Driller LaRoche has 2 HRs (the DV LaRoche has none)
5 – DVs hammer for 9 runs in 5 IP and win 9-4. Cahill completes his rookie season with another win to move his final record to 6-12
6 – Drillers prevail 2-0 as they only get to see Aaron Cook for 1 batter as the DVs quickly go to the bullpen while banishing Cook to detail Halladay’s car in the player’s parking lot for the remainder of the game. Hamell (Jason, not Dorothy), Wilson and Hoffman combine to limit the DVs to 5 hits
7 – Drillers continue their mastery with a 1-0 shutout. Mark Rzepczynsk-ksnyzcpezR (with his mother and potato farming father in the stands to see him play in person for the first time) combines with Wilson and Hoffman on a 4 hitter. hits a home run for the game’s only run. Todd Helton makes the final out in the DV season – (perhaps the last ever in a DV uniform?).
DVs end 72-90 – going 9-22 over the last month plus. Interesting that the team hit .252, but did not have anyone hit under .200.
Good luck to all in the playoffs – Stanton, Castro, Hellickson and Wallace look forward to their first post season appearances next fall.<<...>> <<...>> <<...>> <<...>> <<...>> <<...>> <<...>> <<...>> <<...>> <<...>> <<...>> <<...>> <<...>> <<...>>

The series ends the season for the Warpigs, who finish 69-93. In 24 years in NASOMA, the Warpigs have never ended a season with between 70 and 89 wins. Every year the win total has been in either the 60s, the 90s, or the 100s.

From the Fugnose...
Fungoes and Mavs got five in today with the Fungi winning 3 of 5. Here are the high (low?) lights:
Fungoes break open a close game in the 7th with a seven spot! Gallardo takes the loss while Price picks up the win. Three inning save for Feldman.
Mavs get to Wakefield for 6 in the first. Hard to believe but Wakefield goes the distance losing 13-1. Hochevar picks up the win. Chris Davis enjoyed a big evening at the plate. He slapped a base-hit in the
1st inning and emptied the bases with a Grand Slam homerun in the 8th inning.
TAD finished with 16 hits while DEREK ended up with 4.
Fungoes win game three 8-2. Bergeson picks up the Win for the Fungi and Okajima earns the three-inning save. The loss goes to Marquis. Fungoes simply wore out the Mav pitching staff, scoring in 6 different innings.
Yovani Gallardo and Tim Wakefield locked horns in a pitcher's duel
with Gallardo and the MAVS coming out on top of the FUNGOES 2 to
Mav's came up with 2 runs in the 4th inning when they had 3 base hits. They
would hold up as the winning runs. After the 4th inning, neither team was
able to score.
Jose Valverde earned the save.
Designated hitter Ryan Zimmerman homered and had 4 RBI at What the Fuck Field where
the WTF FUNGOES beat the MAVS by the score of 8 to 6.
Zimmerman made sure the WTF fans enjoyed themselves. He doubled scoring two
baserunners in the 3rd inning and smashed a two-run homer in the 7th inning.
Fungoes banged out 9 hits on the night.
David Price allowed 5 runs in 7 innings, and picked up the victory.
Jonathan Papelbon earned the save. Robinson Tejeda was the loser
Fungoes record now stands at 83-60.
I still remember where I was: sitting on the floor in front of our tv in Kettering, Ohio. Every day at school I was surrounded by Reds fans, but I liked Yaz and the Sox.
Makes me feel old.

Rhinos 2, VuvuZuckers 3
Rhinos 3, Sidewinders 7
Two biggest news flashes: Jair Jurrjens threw a no-hitter for the Bees, allowing only 3 walks in the 6-0 victory over the Rhinos.
The Snakes and VuvuZelas tied for the AWD title with records of 97-65. Per NASOMA tie-breaker rules, the Sidewinders and Vuvus will play a 1-game playoff to determine which team wins the division (and gets a bye in the first round), and which team has to turn around and play on the road the next day as a wild card. The home team for the 1-game playoff will be determined by a roll of the 20-sided die by the Commissioner.
Game details from Colonel Rhino...
Rhinos go 3-2 vs Bees
Jose - Bees take 3 of 5 at the Hive. Attached are the .html files. Somehow I must have deleted the game files and subsets for our series. I had a discrepancy in my record/stats within the game and in my spreadsheet (which I update periodically). In trying to find the errors, I think I deleted a few files by accident. Sorry, but I guess you will have to manually enter these stats.
(Editor's note: The above is NASOMAspeak for "Blow me. That's what you get for taking so long to play these games. Oh, and I have great calves.")

Congratulations to the Sidewinders for winning the extra reserve pick. Final standings of the contest will be posted on the website as soon as all games today are completed, but the Snakes have clinched thanks to the Braves' win over the Phillies and the Rockies' loss in St. Louis.
Here are the games to watch:
Phillies at Braves - If the Braves win, the Pigs are eliminated.
Yankees at Red Sox & Rays at Royals - Rhinos have the Rays; Snakes and Pigs have the Yankees.
Padres at Giants - Padres have put up a valiant effort to hang on; can they do it for one more day? The Snakes hope not.
Rockies (suck) at Cardinals - You watch, the Braves will win early and knock the Pigs out of this race, and then the Rockies will finally win another game just to tease the Piggies.
