Dave Grubb got the start for the Beasts, and looked to set the hook early. Unfortunately for him, the Bass Holes were full of life, and ran with the line. GM Dave Sullivan and baby bass Mike Thompson each found themselves on base twice in the first, combining for 3 walks, a hit, 2 RBI’s, and 2 runs scored. Mike Houle who was the lone Bass Hole not to reach base in the first, proved that the Bass Hole team motto was a motto and not a myth; taking a ball directly to the head with the bases loaded, and refusing his base. Many applauded his act of “manliness”, while others laughed as he ended the inning by the end of the at-bat.
Luckily for Houle, Tim McGoewn and Dave Sullivan made sure that faux pas wouldn’t cost their team. Megow went the distance only allowing 3 base runners on 3 hits, and never giving anyone a free pass to first. Sullivan, showing his range and arm, made sure any ball that was hit to left field ended up as a recorded out.
This win capped a double header for the Bass Holes, but left many scratching their heads. The Bass Holes just beat the only undefeated team left in NEAWL, after losing to one of the few teams that were win-less going into the week. Where do they go from here?
Bass Holes - 2
