Storm shut-out Mayhem

With Hurricane Irene off to the east of us, a strong wind was blowing in all game and kept this game honest, Bob gave it a try in the third but had no luck, the wind knocked his ball down well short of the right field fence. Good defense by both teams kept this game very close. The Storm manufactured a few runs on some timely hitting and good base running. Make the final 4 - 0.

Shutout's since 2004 - 2
last shutout victory - June 9th 2010 vs Greenthumb (12 - 0)

August Record Falls to 1-6

It started out well, with hits from the first 4 batters in the 1st and hits from 3 of the first 4 batters in the 2nd. After that it was ugly. We managed only 3 hits over the last 5 innings, including a 'don't catch the league president's can-of-corn' triple. Final score 10-4.

Another Statement Game for the Falcons

depleted lineup hit the field for the Storm, including a one-armed Danny coming off of the DL to give us 8 players. After questionable field conditions moved the game to K2, the Falcons rescinded their offer to catch for us when an early-arriving member of the A's jogged out join our outfield corps.
With only 3 outfielders the Falcons had no trouble getting hits. Although their 14-run 3rd inning wasn't quite good enough to match the 15-run inning Greenthumb got against us a few games ago. The Falcons also managed 6 HRs in the game, and were swinging for more. But after their 3rd home run with a 20+ run lead, we decided to call it a night. Final score 22-0.

Wins in August: 1!

The bats come alive for one night, briefly bringing back memories of better times for the Storm. Final score 28-3.

No Bat's again last night

The Storm played a pretty good game last night considering it was a very short bench with many walking wounded playing to avoid the forfeit. The bat's went silent for many players as we only had one inning with more than two hits in it. Defence was OK, however a few costly miscue's again bit us in the behind again. The Storm had a chance as they were only 2 runs down after 6 innings. But Direct scored 3 in the top of the seventh, and The Storm could not answer, make the final 10 to 5 for Direct Elevator.
