CUP O' JO: Sunday, May 31st

Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. 
 A few of PTowns ballplayers drove through a locust storm yesterday.  Sam Banister's University of Arizona Wildcat Softball team, the nation's most potent offense was blown out 14-0 by Georgia in an elimination game.  And the season is over for DJ Gentile's Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Mustangs.  They were also defeated in a close game by Kent State.  Jonny Gomes finally got a pinch hit appearance in a miserable game versus the Milwaukee Brewers.  And he flew out.  Surprised I heard the call.  Last night's game was a steady stream of tornado warnings punctuated with intermittent baseball.  Hope everyone in Ohio is OK.

Rather than second guess Dusty's moves (believe me, there's plenty of that going on), I thought I would lighten things up with this pearlacious recap of Tommy Everidge's Thursday game.  Originally written in French by a blogger and Royals fan named Dan Cortez, the delightful Reverse Googlator gives us a unique perspective. I have only paraphrased here. If you have a few minutes to read the entire blog, you'll enjoy a bonus chuckle or two as Dan shares his flu riddled trek to his daughter's softball game.
AA - NW Arkansas: Midland 12, Naturals 8 (Thu.):
Both teams pounded completely 11 hits but a glue Naturals errors helped the RockHounds victory and home up a understandable about at a 3-game flexure. Jordan Parraz collide a 2-out RBI fasten on in the 3rd to frame it 2-0 but Kniginyzky ran into exert oneself in the 4th. DH Tommy Everidge went crave, while, by despite his 7th of the edible to clear the fashion bad the 5th bad Nicoll and frame it 4-2 Midland. He allowed 3 runs on a 2-run triple and RBI imitation to descend pulled by despite Chris Nicoll, who got completely of the inning without more distant rile. A Kurt Mertins sac coast in the 5th motivation the clear the fashion distant to 1 but Nicoll was pulled by despite Aaron Hartsock to frame his ‘09 AA first night with the bases overloaded and 0 completely in at bottom the 7th. The RockHounds scored 3 runs in the inning without a collide bad Hartsock as a unrestrained erect, run-scoring fallacious and sac coast made it 7-3. Corey Smith took a bases-loaded pony in the 7th to motivation it to 7-4 but the Naturals anarchist the bases directly. Chris McConnell collide an RBI fasten on and with the bases overloaded and 2 completely in the 8th, Parraz came by with a bases-clearing triple to motivation the clear the fashion to 10-8. Midland responded with 3 runs in the 8th bad Hartsock and Dan Cevette to frame it 10-4 but the Naturals weren’t directly in time to come. Midland picked up 2 surety runs in the 9th, to whatever amenities, and the Naturals stranded 1 in the 9th as RP Sam Demel picked up his 8th come to someone’s rescue. Starter Carlos Hernandez got the victory with 3 ER allowed on 6 hits and 4 walks with 2 Ks during the course of 6 IP to amend to 2-0 with a 4.09 ERA. Four ‘Hounds had 2 hits and 1B Chris Carter drove in 3 runs (38) and collide his 18th imitation. Everidge was 2-5 with his HR, 43rd RBI, a pony, K and 2 RS to move away to at bottom .306.
Well done Tommy.  I think.

Give PTownFan a shout. It will make her day to know there is someone out there ;-) Don't worry. She doesn't always talk about herself in the third person like The Rickey.
