As the Bashers have learned over the years, it’s not enough to simply show up for a game. The twist and turns of the City Stars Softball League are much more surprising than your average trip to the deli. But just like any deli, if you don’t save your spot in line, you’re the one ending up hungry.
The Bashers are not a nice group when they are ‘hangry’.
After a(nother) mix up with the schedule by the League, the Bashers were set to paint the town under the skyline of New York, with Central Park as the easel. Coming off a big BBQ’d-powered win, team-rookie, Sean Marchesault took it upon himself to provide sustenance for the Mel’s Burger ballers in the form of Familia pizza. Fueled by pepperoni, the Bashers quickly jumped out to a lead behind returning veteran, Dylan Murphy.
By the 3rd inning the Crew had jumped out to a 6 - 0 lead and showed promise. Defensively, the Mel’s Monsters muffled any attempts by the Vh1 squad tried to put together. Solid plays by roomies Mack-tastic and Cook (formerly Alix Awesome) stifled the music-channel moguls’ chance to find a rhythm or rhyme. But their music truly died when Dylan Marshall stepped to the plate, who led the Bashers in RBIs and HRs - unleashing two bombs to right field. When the beat stopped the Mel’s mammoths had munched down their first mercy meal of the season… And it wasn’t the pizza.
Congrats to the whole team for a complete win. Record now stands at 5-2. Special thanks to WallE and Lil’E for dropping by. And to Laura, for attempting to make her season debut (it lurks on the horizon). Extra large thanks to Sean for providing the pizza nourishment.
Until next time…
