Taking a page out of the Teabagger's book, we beat Stride of Pride last week... if you ignore their 4-run fifth inning.
For a team that considered the game "a lock," I think we surprised them by taking an
early lead and them going into the final inning down by 2 runs - so
much so that they had lost track of their line-up and were incredibly
insistent that it was only the 4th inning. That being said, they
played like a Capital team and came through when it mattered most,
while we decided to take a mental break and commit a handful of bad
I swear once we stop trying to peg base-runners, we'll start to be a
more defensively solid team. As is, we've never been more thankful for
the one-extra-base over-throw rule.
This week we play Balls Against Humanity, a team we're completely
unfamiliar with. They're not getting much love in the official
standings or in the power rankings, but Pitches B Trippin was in dead
last when we lost to them, so we're not looking to take this week
lightly. Hopefully we end this two-week losing skid in time for the
SXSW break, setting us up for a grudge-match, two-years in the making, against Suck My Kick.
