MLB'S, The BIG TEAM

Energy Bars before the game. They're magic!

Rain delays, vision-impaired umpires, games that aren't even close

We share an enthusiasm and love of BC BazeBol!!

Cap's got to be on just right.

Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday's success or put its failures behind and start over again. That's the way life is, with a new game every day, and that's the way baseball is. ~ Bob Feller, MLB pitcher 1936-1956

  Thank you MAJOR LEAGUE BEAKS
This concludes the 2013 BazeBol Season for the MAJOR LEAGUE BEAKS.

We went out with a *#BANG#* when we won our game against the C-2 White Hawks which left us with a 6 win, 6 loss record for the year. Not bad for a rookie season!

I want to thank you, each one, for signing on to play baseball with the MLBs. It couldn't have been done without you. Thank you for your enthusiasm and participation where possible. It's been a joy getting to know you over the summer and meet up at the baseball field almost weekly. Here's wishing you a pleasant conclusion to the summer season and fine finish to the year.

THANKS FOR THE BASEBALL MEMORIES.

Most sincerely,
Your coach and friend,

  THE MAJOR LEAGUE BEAK TEAM
arrive en masse for an early morning field practice session.

Okay BEAKS, for today's practice session, I'd like to see the ball thrown between three players after being caught before it's returned to the pitcher's mound.

With that, the team take their field positions; Tia on the mound, Blue behind the plate, Cori on first, Mackenzie on second, Reba at third, Simon covering short stop, Ruby out in left field, Rio in the center, Jasper over in right field, Ziggy up at short field.

Reserve Zeena selects a bat, steps to the plate and readies for Tia's first pitch of the day. Her swing produces a hit that burns it's way past second, just out of reach of Mackenzie's glove. Rio comes up to the meet the bouncing ball, catches it, whips it Reba who burns it across to Cori who then returns it to Tia on the mound.

"Nice hit, Zeena!"

Tia quickly sends in another pitch which Zeena slugs out to left field where Ruby is there to greet it. She whizzes the ball to Mackie on 2nd who drills it into to Blue at home. Blue returns it to Tia.

This routine continues until Zeena has had ten turns at batting. Peppy steps to the plate to take a crack at batting. Zeena heads out to left field and Ruby comes in to warm up for a turn at bat.

The plays are quick and smooth, fast and on-the-mark. Teammates call out encouragement and compliments to each other as a great catch is made or a nice connect is accomplished.


The MLB'S practice session shows a team that's confidently working towards being ready for Friday's game.

After each team member has had a turn at bat, the MLBs clear the field, gather up their gear and head for the exit, talking amongst themselves about how good that session felt.

On an interesting note, I believe we were being watching by a lone dark feathered figure up in the stands. For all the details, visit our TEAM PAGE.

[… Well, as dark as bright Blue and Gold feathers can be camouflaged to be in the bright sunshine of a day at a Ball Park where it never rains.]

His BazeBol Cap is pulled low over his nares and he has what would seem to be a pair of binoculars in his wing that raise to his eyes and lower long enough for him to scratch out some notes on his observations … [ “WAY over confident on fieldin’ abilities. Know how t’ counter TeamMates hits, throw th’ ball b’twixt each other, an’ hit th’ pitches aimed right at ‘em. BUT THEY AIN’T SEEN US COMIN’ AT ‘EM YET!!!” ]

Please cast your vote (only ONE vote PER PLAYER OR FAN, PER POSITION) for Starters and Reserves on either the Beak League Team or the Talon League Team. (In other words, you may vote for each of 9 Starting Positions and 2 Reserves in either of the two Leagues, a total of 11 Votes. But you may NOT vote for any one position in BOTH Leagues—with the eggsception, of course, of Reserves for which you may vote for one in each league if you wish. Voting for any other Position in both Leagues will void your vote for that Position completely.) Teams in each League are listed in the “My motto:” section on the KEVLAR Memorial Stadium Page (No. 239836).

Only current PLAYERS or RESERVES may vote for the Position of PITCHER.

Starting Positions are:
Pitcher
Catcher
1st BaseBird
2nd BaseBird
3rd BaseBird
Short Stop
Left Field
Center Field
Right Field and
Short Field

If you do not know the Players on a Team, most Teams have established a Team Page which you can find by visiting that Team’s Captain’s Page. Team Captains and their Page Numbers are listed on The Office of the Birdie BazeBol Commissioner’s Page (No. 249453) in the “How we met:” section. If there is no Team Page, I’m sure the Team Captains would be happy to share their Team Roster with you!


SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS:

In order to avoid anybirdy’s votes being accidentally overlooked in the huge amount of activity on The Stadium Page, please be sure to LEAVE YOUR VOTES ON THE COMMISSIONER’S PAGE.


I sincerely hope that you have all been enjoying the 2013 Season so far. The All*Star Break marks the halfway point in the Season. We are scheduled to bring the regular Season to its conclusion at the end of August. And then we have the Championship Series to look forward to. But at this point, it is time to recognize and acknowledge the great playing that we have already seen on the Field at KEVLAR Stadium and have a Special Day of FUN with Fans and Players alike!

So get your Votes in NOW! The sooner the better. And let’s all have ourselves a Great All*Star Game!

  @@@ 1st Inning @@@
The game gets under way with co-captain PICO. She connects for a beauty-of-a-hit but it’s headed straight for center field where MLB Rio catches it for the 1st OUT.

PEEKABOO gets t’first on a walk. ROCKET moves him t’second when he snags a single.

It’s a pop fly off BOO BOO’s bat and MLB catcher Blue is scramblin’ t’be underneath of it. Yup, there’s OUT #2.

GUS’s slams one out with the intent t’bring the runners on home but hit’s brought down by MLB Jasper in right field for the 3rd OUT.



~~ ~~ The WonderWings come in, the Beaks head out. ~~


Pitcher TIA knows what a good pitch should look like and since she don’t see one, she gets the walk t’first.

Up next, BLUE, and he drills the first pitch. It’s out there! And he’s around t‘3rd before the ball’s under control and Tia of course is across home plate. (+1) The Beaks are on the board.

A huge hit from CORI becomes the MLB’s 1st OUT when WW SuziQ gets under the ball for the easy catch. 1 OUT, 1 bird on third.

MACKENZIE’s double is enough t’score Blue. (+1) REBA’s single makes it runner on 3/1.

Up next, SIMON. Looks like he’s givin’ the runner on first a wink and a smile. And WHAM-O! He’s cracked the bat on that hit! Mackenzie’s across home plate, Reba’s touched it too. Simon’s held up at third but he’s put (+2) on the board for the Beaks.

RUBY’s two-bagger scores Simon. (+1) RIO single puts birds on 3 /1. ONE OUT still.

It’s a fly ball for JASPER and a second OUT against the MLB’s when WW Patty gets under the ball for the catch.

ZIGGY’s up next. It’s 2 OUTs, birds on 3 / 1... Zig singles and Ruby touches home plate! (+1)

With runners on 2 /1, TIA comes up to the plate again, ready t’bring her teammates home. But her line drive’s stopped dead by WW short stop Rudy. That’s 3 OUTs —

RUDY gets himself walked t’first for starters in this inning.

INDY SAM’s hit bounces itself right t’MLB short fielder Ziggy for an easy OUT at first, but Rudy, he had a good lead and makes it t‘2nd safe.

PATTY takes four balls for the walk. That puts birds on 2nd and 1st.

SUZI~Q approaches the plate and takes a huge swing! It’s sailin’... Rudy and Patty cross home plate and Suzi, she’s made it around t’third. (+2) The Wings are on the board!

Up next, LARS. He crushes out a double, scoring Suzi~Q (+1)

A grounder for both PICO and PEEKABOO leave Lars out in the middle of nowhere though. The Wings have 3 on the board.



~~ WINGS in — BEAKS OUT ~~


It’s a single for BLUE at the start of the bottom of the 2nd.

Up next, CORI; that bat’s lookin’ mighty big in that little bird’s grasp, but apparently she knows what t’do with a big stick — she just put that ball over the fence!!!! HOME RUN for Cori!! Blue and Cori add (+2) for the MLBs.

MACKENZIE grounds out, REBA gets the first strike out of the game. 2 OUTS...

SIMON gets himself t’second on a solid hit but RUBY’s three empty swings make it 3 OUTs for the big birds. They’re up 2 more runs though.

ROCKET opens for the Wings with a gigantic HOME RUN!!! (+1) They don’t call that guy “Rocket” for nothin’!

BOO BOO’s grounder’s an easy first OUT.

GUS, he gets on base with a snazzy little single. RUDY falls prey t’MLB Tia’s pitching prowess. He’s struck OUT.

It’s INDIANA SAM t’the plate and he puts all his Sennie power into the swing and gets himself a HOME RUN!! Gus and Sam put (+2) up for the Wonder Birds.

PATTY~Duck starts the base suppling again with a sweet triple but SUZI~Q’s fly out is the 3rd OUT of the inning. The Wings have added three more to their score.


~~ Wings In, Beaks Out ~~


It’s a double for RIO, then a single for JASPER which puts Beaks on 3rd / 1st.

ZIGGY falls prey t’pitcher Pico’s cut-fastball with three strikes and we’ve got the 1st OUT in the bottom of the 3rd.

When TIA gets a free pass t’first, it’s BASES LOADED with BIG BEAKS!

BLUE looks like he wants t’bring his teammates in on a big hit but he keeps missin’ the ball. 3 strikes makes it 2 OUTs... BASES STILL LOADED.

CORI’s line drive into right field moves all the runners one base which scores Rio. (+1)

MACKENZIE’s triple nearly clears the bases! Jasper, Tia and Cori score on that wallop of hit. (+3)

A grounder off Coach REBA’s bat is an easy out which means Mackie’s left on third and this inning’s over! The MLBs added 4 t’their score.

It’s LARS to the plate t’get things started for the WonderWings and Man! does he get things started; it’s a HOME RUN for the Senegal! (+1)

PICO’s up next. She’s gettin’ picky about the in-comin’ pitches. None of them must look good ‘cause she ain’t swingin’ at none of’em. It’s a walk for PEEX.

PEEKABOO, he must like the look of all of’em ‘cause he swingin’ at all of’em but missin’ too. STEEEE—RIKE OUT!

A double from ROCKET puts Pico on 3rd.

BOO BOO slams one towards the fences and gets all the way around t‘3rd base before the ball’s back to the mound. Pico and Rocket have touched the 4th base for a (+2).

Three strikes for GUS makes it 2 OUTS against the Wings.

RUDY’s at the plate now. He clobbers the ball and gets a three base trip. Boo Boo’s crossed home plate in the process. (+1)

INDY SAM crushes out a double, scoring Rudy (+1) but he’s left on 2nd when three strikes for PATTY makes it 3 OUTS.

The Wings have 11 runs at this point. That puts them one shy of the big birds...


~~
All t’gether now... “WINGS IN, BEAKS OUT!!”

SIMON’s gets on base with a single.

RUBY’s approaching the plate. She’s sizin’ up the field, the fences, the breeze, the sun, the get-up-and-go in her bat. KaBLAMMO — she puts it OVER the fence! HOME RUN for Ruby! Simon and Ruby add (+2) more to the board.

RIO singles but it’s OUT, OUT and OUT for JASPER, ZIGGY and TIA.

SUZI~Q’s got a sharp eye; she’s not goin’ after any of the pitches that aren’t over the plate. She earns a free pass t’first for that.

It’s a high flyin’ hit for LARS but MLB Rio’s under it for the OUT. {-1}

Co-Captain PICO’s got herself a single. That moves Suzi~Q t‘2nd.

PEEKABOO puts everything he’s got in that little parrolet body into the swing and WHAM-O — he’s sent Suzi~Q and Pico over home plate and made it around t’third himself. (+2) more go on the board for the WonderBirds.

But it’s a fly ball for ROCKET that becomes a 2nd OUT and a grounder for BOO BOO that brings the top of the 5th to a close.



~~You know the drill.... “WINGS in, BEAKS out!” ~~



BLUE’s grounder is OUT #1 against the MLBs.

CORI’s long distance hit... it’s ... it’s OUTTA HERE! Say so long t’that ball! (+1)

MACKENZIE, she’s swingin’ like she’d like t’do the same but WW Pico’s pitches are just goin’ all over the place before they zero in di-rectly over the plate. Three strikes and it’s 2 OUTS .

REBA gets the same treatment: serious pitchin’ with no connect. 3 OUTS makes it the end of the inning.

A walk for GUS and a single for INDY SAM is it for the WonderWings in the top of the 6th.

SIMON shows why he’s in the Majors with a power house SOLO HOME RUN!! (+1)

RUBY’s t’first then onto second when RIO gets himself a walk t’the bases. JASPER’s grounder puts an OUT on the counter but moves Ruby and Rio t‘3rd and 2nd respectfully.

ZIGGY, he’s lookin’ for the perfect pitch but that narrow strike zone’s hard t’hit so he talks the walk which makes it BASES LOADED with MLBs!

It’s pitcher TIA t’the plate. She’s wantin’ the one she can send over the wall but it’s four balls and a free pass t’first. This walks Ruby on in home, easy as pie. (+1)

BLUE’s comin’ t’the plate. He’s brought with’em the biggest bat I think the team has in its equipment collection! He’s got plans for the ball, I’d say. AND THERE IT IS, FOLKS, A GRAND SLAM for BLUE!!!! Rio, Ziggy, and Tia have touched home plate and are now waitin’ to welcome the big slugger home. (+4)

A strike OUT for CORI and a fly OUT for Mackenzie finish up the inning for the BEAKS.

LARS aims t’get things goin’ for the Wings but his grounder’s scooped up by MLB Reba and whipped t’ first for the 1st OUT.

Three empty swings for PICO and we’ve got 2 OUTs.

PEEKABOO gets on base though with a solid smack up the middle.

ROCKET, he’s trompin’ to the plate. Looks like he’s a mission. SURE ENOUGH!! That ball he just hit is LONG GONE!!! HOME RUN for Rocket! The second one for him in this game. Peekaboo and the Grey guy put (+2) up for the Wings.


BOO BOO snags a nice single but GUS’s strike out makes it 3 OUTS at the half way point of the 7th.


The score stands at 15/21 ... Beaks.

... for the bottom of the 7th. The Beaks send their coach out t’get the action started. REBA opts for the walk option. She rolls her bat towards the dugout as she strolls t’first.

Wait a sec... Indy Sam’s comin’ to the mound. Looks like he’s wants a word with Pico. Catcher Peekaboo’s headin’ out to join the conference. It’s lookin’ like a serious conversation. Ya know somethin’s up when a Caique gets an expression like that!

Okay, they’re headed back t’their positions. Peekaboo’s given the signal.

SIMON steps into the batter’s box. His hit’s pulled down by WW Lars at the short field position. 1st OUT.

Next up, RUBY. Her grounder’s stopped by WW Boo Boo and rocketed t’first for the 2nd OUT.

RIO has a beaut of a hit but it too is swiped from the sky, this time by WW Scion.

The Wings have just kept the Beaks scoreless in the bottom of the 7th!

RUDY’s swingin’ like he plans on sendin’ the ball into the next county but he’s just not connectin’ and three strikes makes it 1st OUT.

INDY SAM connects on his first swing and manages to race all the way around t’third before he’s held up.

PATTY~Duck, she smathers the ball for a double which is plenty t’get Indy Sam on in home. (+1)

But a bounding grounder off Suzi~Q’s bat is a quick play between MLB Reba on third t’first base bird Cori for the OUT. {-2}
LARS fly ball lands sweetly in MLB Jasper’s right field mitt for the 3rd OUT.

The Wings put just one on the board this inning.



~~ Wings in... Beaks out! ~~



I’m sure the WonderWings would’ve love t’hold these Beaks to a zero for this inning.

A strike out for JASPER gets the first step towards that wish.

ZIGGY’s fly ball becomes the 2nd OUT when WW Gus instinctively puts his mitt in the path of the hard-hit ball.

TIA lays into the swing like a girl on a mission; it’s a HOME RUN of the SOLO kind for Tia!! (+1)

Next up, Grand Slam BLUE. WW pitcher Pico is mighty careful about what she puts in over the plate. It’s definitely not anything Blue can get ahold of and he knows that. His discretion gets him a walk t’first.

It’s 2 OUTs, one bird on base.

CORI connects for a sweet two-bagger. Blue’s made it t’third. Two outs....

MACKENZIE waits through a series of pitches that end up as a full count but the last one falls in her favor and she’s walked. It’s BASES LOADED with MACAWS.

REBA’s got the chance of a life time t’put the Beaks just a little further out of reach. She takes the first pitch and it’s a HUGE hit!! But it’s a huge catch by INDY SAM in left field. Those loaded bases are safely unloaded by the WonderWings with a 3rd OUT.

The Beaks have put one run on the board as well for this inning.

It’s now or never, WonderWings!

PICO approaches the plate; her grounder burns past the pitcher and pops up into MLB Mackenzie’s mitt. A quick throw t’Cori on first and it’s FIRST OUT.

PEEKABOO’s up next. He’s smacked one right through the infield defense and out between center and right... He’s around t’second before he’s stopped.

ROCKET clobbers his pitch of choice and takes off runnin’. He’s around t’first and on t’second before the balls even touched. Peekaboo’s crossed home plate t’make the Wing’s score 17...

And it’s BOO BOO. How does that little bird hold that big of a bat? She’s got it up there, ready to go t’work for her team. And sure enough, it’s a job well done!! HOME RUN for Boo Boo!! Rocket’s touched the fourth plate and waits for Boo Boo t’do the same. The Wings now have an “19” on the scoreboard!

GUS earns a single base with his line drive. It’s ONE OUT, 1 Bird on base...

Up next, RUDY. The bat’s just made that awesome “TING” sound as the ball rebounds off it but it’s a grounder that’s whipped from short stop Simon to Cori on first for the 2nd OUT. Gus makes it to 2nd safely.

INDY SAM, he’s put Sennie power in his swing but the ball’s drilled right t’the pitcher who whips it t’first ahead of the runner and it’s GAME OVER.

This one belongs to the Major League Beaks!!

  Reba arrives back at the MLB Clubhouse
... to post the unfortunate outcome of today's game. It pains her to put up a third loss for the team. At this point, a coach has to really resist the urge to worry about what's she's doing wrong in guiding the team forward. But then, considering this is only the middle of June and there are still many games yet to play, there's lots of reason for HOPE.

And since this is a fine team she's a part of, there's no reason why things can't turn around for the MAJOR LEAGUE BEAKS... starting next week!

  GOOD MORNING MAJOR LEAGUE BEAK!
Yes, that would be you.


It's a THURSDAY in June so you know what that means; we're live at Kevlar Memorial Stadium this afternoon! Today we're hosting those little CrackerJack Conures. We can't let their size lull us into thinking this could be an easy win. On the contrary, if you know conures like I know conures, they're a feisty bunch who have no fear of larger birds, something I'm sure they'll be bringing to the field in full force today. So be sure to pack your MAJOR LEAGUE confidence in with your cap and glove today when you prepare to head for the ball diamond this afternoon.

See you at the stadium!!

Coach Reba, ready to win one!

  LET'S PLAY BALL!! (June 6 MLB vs the Raiders)
@@@ 1st Inning @@@

The Beaks start out this game by sending TIA to the plate. The Raiders start out this game by walking the first batter.

A grounder off BLUE’s bat to RR Elvis on 3rd becomes the first OUT when he gets the ball to Scooby on first ahead of the runner.

CORI’s fly ball deep into right is caught by RR Ethyl for a 2nd OUT.

Next up, MACKENZIE, who punches one through and makes it to second. Tia’s touched home plate for the MLB’s first run. (+1)

Coach Reba, well, she’s out there swattin’ flies apparently, and that’s three strikes for her, 3 OUTS for the MLBs.

~~~~ ~~~~ ~~~~

For the Raider’s, it’s Jenny Lynn. She takes the first pitch and puts it out there. WAY OUT THERE!! We’ve got our first homer of the day, sports fans! (+1)

MAXIE’s smack bounces right up into MM Mackenzie’s mitt and becomes the Raider’s first OUT when the ball’s whipped to MLB Cori at first for the OUT.

Awe man, SCOOBY, he just strike OUT. And then ALFIE, he goes and does the same. 3 OUTS, and that’s the end of the first inning.

The 3rd opens with a pop fly that lands in RR Echo’s glove. 1st OUT.

BLUE singles on a beamer right past the pitcher’s head.

CORI’s beauty of a hit drops into the waiting mitt of short fielder Pedro. 2nd OUT.

MACKENZIE, she clubs the ball for a one baser, moving Blue t‘2nd.

REBA, she brings’em all home on a hit OVER THE WALL!! (+3)

It’s a nice double for Simon but RUBY’s ground out ends it for the Beaks.

~~ ~~ ~~ ~~

Raider RIO drills the ball in MLB Reba’s direction. She wipes it across to Cori on first for the 1st OUT.

It’s a repeat performance for ECHO; a grounder that’s snagged and sent t’first before he can get there himself. 2 OUTs.

ETHYL, she don’t want nobirdie touchin’ the ball she’s about t’hit. She puts it way out in center field, up against the wall which gives her plenty of time t’tap all the bases. HOME RUN for Ethyl!! (+1)
But another grounder for PEDRO means the Zons are all done.

A double for MLB RIO puts him halfway t’home base.

A BEEE-U-TIFUL HOME RUN by the lovely Miss ZEENA brings Rio on home and puts a (+2) on the board for the Beaks.

It’s three swings and three misses for PEPPY though. 1st OUT.

A walk for TIA becomes a run when BLUE hits a HUMDINGER of a HOME RUN! (+2)

CORI gets t’first on a punch just out of short stop Sugar’s reach. She moves on t‘2nd on MACKENZIE’s grounder that ends up as the 2nd OUT.

REBA’s triple brings Cori on in home though which ties up the game!! (+1) Reba’s left on base when her beau gets three strikes against’em. Bummer there, Dude.


~~ ~~ ~~ ~~

The Zons are quick t’send their next batter out. JENNY makes the connect but MLB left fielder Ruby takes it down for a 1st OUT.

Pitcher Tia’s in grove and gets three strikes on ARR MAXIE. 2nd OUT.

SCOOBY triples but Alfie gets himself struck out so it’s inning over here at the bottom of the fourth.

The macaws add 5, the zons, none.

But there’s no gettin’ ahead allowed for the Beaks; it’s a fly OUT, a strike OUT, and another fly OUT.

The Zon’s take the field...

~~ ~~ ~~ ~~

A fly OUT and a strike OUT make it look like this inning’s gonna be a ditto for the Zons but the RIO slugs one OVER AND OUT OF THE PARK!! HOME RUN for RIO!! (+1)

ECHO buries one up agains the center field wall which gives him plenty of time to make it to third.

ETHYL gives Echo all the time he wants by sluggin’ a HOME RUN of her own!! (+2)

It’s PEDRO to the plate and .... I’m not believin’ this, it’s ANOTHER HOME RUN for the Raiders!!!! (+1)

The MLB’s pitcher shuts this home run spree down with three snazzy little splitters t’get three strikes on Jenny Lynn.

It’s PEPPY to the plate but his crack of the bat puts the ball smack-dab in the middle of ARR Alfie’s mitt for a 1st OUT.

TIA, she puts the ball where nobirdie can touch it; OVER THE FENCE!!! HOME RUN for Tia!! (+1)

BLUE’s single becomes an RBI for MACKENZIE when she belts out a HOMER of her own! (+2)
But a caught fly ball and REBA’s grounder right t’first base make it 3 OUTS for the top of the 6th.

~~ ~~ ~~ ~~

MAXIE the WonderBird gets things rollin’ for the Raiders with a whopper of a HOME RUN! (+1) Is there any doubt why we call her the WonderBird!

Grand Slam SCOOBY’s hit bounds towards 2nd base where MLB Mackenzie stops it and sends it t’Cori on first for the 1st OUT.

ALFIE’s really nice fly ball become the 2nd OUT when Zeena in right field catches it, no problem.

It’s a single for ELVIS.

SUGAR, she looks ready for a little piece of the action. Well, I guess so!! BABY, that one’s LONG GONE!!! HOME RUN for SUGAR!!!! Elvis and Shugs make it a (+2) more for the Raiders!

Three strikes for RIO and 6th inning’s concluded.

Alright, the Beaks are gonna have t’make their move in here somewhere. Now would be a good time.

A fly OUT and a strike OUT aren’t a good way t’open an inning though ain’t gonna do it.

RIO (the Blue & Gold) gets t’first on four balls. He moves t’second when ZEENA drills out a single. BASES ARE LOADED whehn PEPPY pops another base-worthy plug.

It’s 2 OUTS...

TIA has the chance of a lifetime here though. Her first swing and Oh! It’s a strike. RR Jenny’s gotta be happy with that. But then it’s a ball, and another ball.... And Tia ends up only gettin’ to walk to first. Rio adds one to the board. (+1)

2 OUTS still....

BLUE goes for broke and wails away on the pitch — it’s out there! It’s, it’s, it’s in RR Echo’s mitt for the 3rd OUT.

  BOTTOM OF THE 7th...
The RAIDERS are up
A fly ball off ECHO’s bat starts this show with an OUT.
ETHYL whammies a sweet one deep into right field and earns herself a triple.
PEDRO’s fly ball is an easy catch for MLB Ruby in left field. 2nd OUT.
With a runner on third, JENNY’s sweet little single gets the RBI. Ethyl adds (+1).
MAXIE’s walk moves Jen t’second. SCOOBY’s single makes it BASES LOADED!! The Zon have yet another opportunity here t’put some real comfort in the point spread!
It’s ALFIE t’the plate. He’s got that bat up and ready. He swings, connects. The ball’s out there. It’s headed towards the fence.... but WHOA!! MLB Zeena leaps for the catch and pulls the ball down for the final OUT of the inning. Those loaded bases go t’waste.

The Beaks have gotta be feelin’ the pressure at this point. Down four, they need this t’be a big inning for’em. But REBA’s walk t’first is the only base action they see. That ain’t gonna do it, Rebz.

The Big Birds take their field positions again.

~~ ~~ ~~ ~~

In an effort t’hold the Raiders, MLB pitcher is puttin’ in some real beauties over the plate. Raider ELVIS is goin’ for it but it’s 3 strikes, 1st OUT.

SUGAR snags a hit but MLB teamwork gets the ball t’their first base bird Cori ahead of Sugar for a 2nd OUT.

Next up, RIO the Zon. He doubles on the hit. ECHO’s single makes it birds on 3rd/1st. ETHYL’s walk makes it BASES LOADED.

PEDRO clobbers the pitch, the ball’s burned out t’right field but Rio and Echo cross home plate (+2) and Pedro makes it around t‘2nd before the runners are stopped. Ethyl’s on 3rd.

2 OUTS still...

JEN~LYNN gets herself walked which again makes it BASES LOADED!!
2 OUTs on the counter...

MAXIE snags a single, scoring Ethyl.(+1) BASES ARE STILL LOADED.

Strike ONE for SCOOBY... strike TWO... and strike THREE — inning over. The MLBs have kept those bases from emptying over the home dish. But the Zons, they added 3 to their side of the board.

This is the Beak’s last stand.

RUBY opens with a triple which raises the hopes of the team, I’d bet.

A fly ball to right field becomes the 1st OUT though.

Three strikes at the plate and it’s 2 OUTs.

PEPPY manages t’get himself walked t’first puttin’ birds on 3/1 but a fly ball, caught by a confident Raider makes it 3 OUTs, GAME OVER.

This one goes t’the RAIDERS!! Congrats Zons on your win!
