Big Ballers & Hot Pitches
With one last week to make or break a season, teams took to the fields one last time with a chance to squeeze into next week’s playoffs. Some teams locked up their spots and just took the night easy with their games but others went all out to make that last ditch effort. Though these two particular teams playoff hopes were dashed weeks ago, they played a very entertaining final game of the season against each other and in the spirit of the league didn’t care who won or loss but were enjoying the cold ones.
Lil Lebowski’s Bourbon Achievers and Big Ballers & Hot Pitches both struggled to get to find a rhythm in the first inning, but once the top of the second inning came, Lil Lebowski’s broke through for a pair of runs as they went American Ninja Warrior on the base paths to take the early lead, but the warrior spirit was not with them on the mound as some pitching jitters allowed Big Ballers & Hot Pitches numerous opportunities to get runs across the plate. They took advantage of it mounting five runs on the board to grab the lead. Lil Lebowski’s responded with three runs in the top of the third only to be matched with three from B.B.H.P. in the bottom half and the lead stayed at three. With time stating to become a factor Lil Lebowski’s got together from one last run at the scoreboard. This time they were able to match their run total from the previous evening with three runs to erase the deficit with three runs and the game stood at eight all. Big Ballers & Hot Pitches as the home team took to the batter’s box in the bottom half of the last inning as time expired. It was now or never for this team just itching for a win. They showed patience at the plate as the pitching from Lil Lebowski’s was still suspect and Big Ballers’ patience was rewarded as they pushed the winning run across the plate to end their season on a high note. Despite the loss, Lil Lebowski’s fired up the ‘que and went all out to celebrate a birthday.
It all comes to a climatic end next week as the playoffs will finally be here and a championship banner will be raised. Until then social clubbers…cheers!
