squared off in a tense pitching duel, the NADS finally emerged victorious
over the FUNGOES, 2 to 1.

first plating an isolated run on 2 base hits. The Fungoes had a chance to come
back in the 9th but they came up short.
Grant Balfour preserved the game for Wilson, recording his 1st save. 'We
didn't get the key hits when we needed them' Kaline said. 'We did
what we could, we just didn't pull out the win. What can you say?' Answering his own question,
Kaline said "Shit-Fuck!"

Fungoes played four at FFTland today winning all four. Christmas in July?
Here are the high(low)-lights.
Nelson Cruz ripped 2 (ballpark) homeruns (1-3) and had 4 RBI at Qualcomm Stadium as the
FUNGOES beat the FFT'S 9 to 5.
Cruz was unconscious all evening. The FFT faithful hated to see him approaching
the batter's box as he just kept delivering base hits! He doubled in the 2nd
inning, bombed a two-run dinger in the 5th inning and cleared the fences for
a two-run home run in the 9th inning. The FUNGOES kept the pressure on throughout
the contest as they scored in 6 different innings.

Stauffer gained credit for his 5th save. Jered Weaver was the loser.
He was knocked around pretty good, giving up 6 runs in 4 and 2/3 innings.

differently, it's the same way I always approach the game.'
The FUNGOES got by the FFT'S at Qualcomm Stadium. The final score
was 9 to 7.
Lance Berkman was a thorn in the side of the hometown fans as he enjoyed a
fine day at their team's expense. He tripled with all three baserunners
touching home in the 3rd inning and smashed a solo-shot out of the park in
the 7th inning. Ernesto Frieri was perfect in relief and got the save, his
David Robertson went 1 inning allowing no runs for the victory. Matt
Belisle was hit with the loss in relief. He surrendered 4 hits and no
walks in 2 innings.
In a good matchup it was the FUNGOES 7, the FFT'S 4 at Qualcomm
In the top of the 5th inning the Fungoes scored 4 runs when they came up with 3 base
hits. The big moment was provided by Ryan Zimmerman who disappointed the
partisan crowd when he doubled which was good for two runs. The Fungoes had 11
hits for the game while the FFTs had 8.
Jon Garland was the winner allowing 4 runs in 6 and 2/3 innings. Joel
Zumaya was credited with his 1st save. James McDonald absorbed the
loss. The Fungoes knocked him around a bit, as he gave up 5 runs in 4 and 2/3
Shortstop Ramon Santiago slammed a homerun and had 5 RBI at Qualcomm Stadium
where the FUNGOES beat the FFT'S 12 to 6.
Santiago had a big day against the FFTs. He cleared the fences for a two-run
home run in the 2nd inning, laced a base-hit resulting in a run in the 5th
inning and lined a single scoring two baserunners in the 9th inning.
The FFTs were out-hit by the Fungi, 16 hits to 12.
Rick Porcello got the win allowing 6 runs in 6 innings. David Robertson
was credited with his 1st save. Stephen Strasburg was given the loss.
He allowed 8 hits and 5 walks in 4 and 1/3 innings.

Nads 5, Inmates 2
All games at Nadville.
Nads 8 – Inmates 5: Francisco comes on to pitch for the Inmates in the 6th with score 4-4 and gets the first two batters out. Then walk, walk, tater, tater, and we lose.
Nads 5 – LDMF 0: Dumpster pitches a three-hitter for the Nads. ‘Nuf said.
Nads 2 – LDMF 0: Wilson/Saito/Lyons two-hit the LDMF. Here are the LDMF hi-lights:
1st inning: Johnson walks with one out; Beltre singles him to 3rd one out later. Both are stranded by Howard.
2nd inning: Francisco walks; Jones walks with one out, Francisco to 2nd; Susuckme hits into 6-4-3 DP.
5th inning: Jones walks, then steals 2nd with one out; Scrotumo and Johnson both K.
7th inning: With one out, Gonzalez, Fukudome, and Colvin all walk to load the bases; Scrotumo hits into a 5-2-3 DP.
8th inning: Johnson walks and steals 2nd; Pena pinch-hits into a 8-4 DP (?!?); Beltre singles and is left stranded.
Inmates 3 – Nads 0: It takes 14 Inmate hits to score three runs, two of which were solo HRs by Gonzalez and Howard. Billingsley is sharp.
Nads 10 – LDMF 3: Nads score 6 in the 2nd as Wood throws batting practice. Inmate one-game winning streak is snapped.
Inmates 9 – Nads 3: Anderson twirls a complete-game 10-hitter for the Inmates; Wilson throws a complete-game 14-hitter for the Nads.
Nads 5 – Inmates 3: A b-flat game with not much of interest happening. Inmates/LDMF suck.

Aug 25 Kevin Slowey slaps a pie in the face of Grienke as he goes 6 shutout innings for a 7 – 1 Driller win. Brandon League sucked shit.
This series was played at the start of April, but not reported. Thanks to the Zapper for getting it to me.
Mavs 4, Zaps 1
Well I don't know what to make of this. We've been getting killed and all of a sudden I've won 7 out of ten. The strange thing is I've been resting players and starters. The first score is the Mavs.

Pigs 2, Hoos 0
A summer afternoon with cards and dice... just like the old days.
Gm 1 - Pigs win 3-2 - Going into the bottom of the 9th, the Wahoos led 2-1 thanks to plating triples in both the 3rd and 4th innings. The Pigs had done nothing against Fausto Carmona except a solo shot from Jim Thome way back in the 2nd. But Albert Pujols led off with a single, bringing on Brian Fuentes. Pinch hitter Donnie Murphy drew a walk, and Geovanny Soto ended the game with a double, scoring Pujols and pinch-runner Clayton Richard. Heath Bell, in relief of Trevor Cahill, got the win.
Gm 2 - Pigs win 4-1 - Cliff Lee and four relievers kept the Wahoos at bay, and homers from Pujols and Magglio Ordonez did the damage in the win.

Some notes from the Nashville trip...
Last year I made the trip to Nashville alone and never made a wrong turn. This year, with the Pigs, Fungoes, and Rhinos traveling together... there were at least 5 wrong turns, taking us miles and miles out of the way. At one point on some Arkansas backroad, I swear we could hear banjos... so we paddled faster.
The lady who reserved our room at the hotel said it had 2 queen size beds and a "sleeper sofa". I guess one person's opinion of a sleeper sofa differs from another person's, but the Rhinos slept on what was basically a window sill. About 5 feet long and a foot and a half wide, with a small, slightly soiled, padding. Oh, and it was directly above the air conditioner. The things we will do to make sure we never share a bed with another grown man.
The Pigs and Tweeners completed their series in a various variety of variations. We played 3 games with a CM, 1 game on NetPlay, 1 game face to face with dice, and 5 games shoulder to shoulder on the computer. That has to be some kind of record, doesn't it?
Although the Pigs, Rhinos, and Fungoes actually made TWO trips to the Loveless Cafe for breakfast, next time I want to try lunch there.
The Sidewinder batters struck out 19 times in one 9-inning game against the Warpigs, but still won.
The Bees and Pigs played a 14-inning game that featured 35 strikeouts.
At one point the BeeBoy entered the room, turning on the bright lights and just seconds later emitting a rousing, draft-worthy fart, proving that light does travel faster than sound. The Snakeman figured if we counted the seconds between the light and the sound, we could determine how far away the storm was.
And I'm not sure what this means, but the Rhinos and Bees were reportedly "smoking each other" in the kitchen.
Speaking of smoking each other, the Pigs kicked the Fungoes' ass, and the Fungoes kicked the Snakes' ass, and the Snakes kicked the Pigs' ass. A virtual circle jerk of Strat.

DVs 3, Inmates 0
All played in DVville (read: FuckMe Stadium).
DVs 4 – LDMF 3 (10): Good well-played game until the 10th, when normal LDMF curse takes over. Pena hits HR in 10th the give LDMF the lead, but Helton HRs (on a 1-4/fly), then Perez implodes for the DV win. LDMF now 1-12 in extra innings.
DVs 9 – LDMF 3: Ramirez hits two 3-run HRs before the LDMF can find the dugout. Beltre hits “clutch” 3-run tater in 9th to keep LDMF from being shut out.
DVs 8 – LDMF 0: Ramirez homers again, Helton HRs on another 1-4/fly, and fuck shit fuck fuck shit!^&$#&@*(&!^*@#@!

FFTs 3, Inmates 2
Visiting teams win every game. Inmates keep sucking in extra-inning affairs and are now 1-11.
INMATES 10 – FFTS 7 (FFTville): FFTs jump all over Billingsley and lead 4-0 after three, but Inmates’ cancer-bats go into remission as the Beakless Chicken Gang collects 20 hits, batting around in both 5th and 6th innings.
INMATES 5 – FFTS 4 (FFTville): Pennington’s glove of shit makes two errors, giving FFTs 4-3 lead going into the 9th. Pena hits 2-out 2-run pinch tater to win game for Inmates.
FFTS 12 – INMATES 5 (Baptist Bowl): Lee taters twice for the FFTs who get revenge for last two losses.
FFTS 7 – INMATES 6 (14)(Baptist Bowl): Inmates battle back from 6-0 hole, only to lose in typical fashion in the 14th inning. Both bullpens are severely over-used, with Chacin, Perez, and Belisle all throwing 5+ innings.
FFTS 6 – INMATES 4 (13)(Baptist Bowl): With no bullpen help available, the natural result was another extra-inning game.makes his 5th (!!!) error of the series, while three FFT relievers keep the LDMF from scoring after the 5th.

Buckeyes 4, Inmates 3 (again)
Five well-played games and two total pieces of shit.
INMATES 5 – BUCKEYES 4 (BuckeyeDome): Lead changes several times but two-run homers by Gonzo and Howard carry the Inmates.
BUCKEYES 5 – INMATES 4 (BuckeyeDome): Suzuki hits the first of four homers on the day, but Buckeyes are too much for the Inmates.
BUCKEYES 4 – INMATES 3 (BuckeyeDome): Beltre hits into three DPs, including the game-ender with two runners on. Another one-run nail-biter.
BUCKEYES 11 – INMATES 8 (Baptist Bowl): Buckeyes jump out to a 7-0, including an ugly error-ridden 4-0 lead befor the LDMF even got to hit. Three Inmate HRs couldn’t make up the difference.
INMATES 1 – BUCKEYES 0 (Baptist Bowl): Everything the last game wasn’t. Five Inmate pitchers face four Buckeye pitchers in a great pitching duel. A sacfly by Adam Jones in the 2nd is all the scoring.
BUCKEYES 11 – INMATES 6 (Baptist Bowl): Six HRs in the game (three by each team); the Buckeyes jump out to a 6-0 lead before the Inmates got off the shitter.
INMATES 4 – BUCKEYES 3 (Baptist Bowl): Another great game made greater by an Inmate win. A walk-off 2B by Pena ices the win.
