6/12 – Tweeners 3, Drillers 1. 12 inning affair ends on a walk-off homer by Cliff Pennington, much to the embarrassment of Joe Beimel. Dr. Quackenabush gets credit for the victory.
6/13 – Drillers 6, Tweeners 2. Luke Gregerson had a strong outing as the SHAWN DRILLERS bested the NORM
TWEENERS 6 to 2 at The Hoover Dome.
Scott Kazmir(3-1) contributed a pedestrian performance to earn the win. He
went 5 and 2/3 innings allowing 5 hits and 1 walk and was touched for 2
homeruns. Overall SHAWN out-hit NORM 14 to 5.
Gregerson preserved the game for Kazmir, recording his his 1st save. The
losing pitcher was Madison Bumgarner(10-10). He gave up 11 hits and no walks
in 6 and 1/3 innings.
'Ahhh, that victory was surely needed. Man alive, things were getting awfully
grim,' noted SHAWN's manager. 'Now, we need to string a bunch of wins
together and turn things around!' Turns out he’s a fucking prophet.
8/19 – Drillers 2, Tweeners 1. Alex Cobb went 8 solid innings at The Hoover Dome where the SHAWN DRILLERS
beat the NORM TWEENERS 2 to 1.

runs on 3 base hits. That was all the runs Cobb(1-1) needed. NORM made it
exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across.
Cobb got relief help from Joakim Soria who gained credit for his 1st save.
Hisashi Iwakuma(6-7) ended up with the loss. 'Just one or two mistakes were

day at a time, but this one was hard to take.'
