Unicorns, Writers Black Out

The Unicorns were hurt so much by the powers of the
Kraken that it continued to ail them a week later.
     All of the feel-good from the stellar "all-girl-and-Romeo" defense was put to rest two Mondays ago as the Unicorns raced the number two lead in the division, the Renegades.

Game 1
Top of the 1st: F1, 6-3, F7.
Mid 1st: "Wait, we already batted?" - Anonymous, heard from the dugout
Bottom 1st: First four batters score.

Top 2nd: Greaver scores on RBI single by Larry Strait.  Unicorns 1, Renegades 4.  Not bad.
Bottom 2nd: Four out of the first five batters score.  Bad.

Top 3rd: 1-2-3 with 2 strikeouts.  "Closest strike out of a side I'd ever seen in slow pitch softball," - The Skipper
Bottom 3rd: Three of the first four batters score.  Better than last inning.

Top 4th: Greaver bats in Edge on a fielder's choice.  2-11.  It's been worse.
Bottom 4th: Nine of the first ten score.  I wrote that out so that it would hide the numbers.

The game ends.  Everyone blacks out.

Game 2
     All of the Unicorns are blacked out except for Strait, who scores the only run on a huge solo shot homerun.  It's impressive that the 'corns only managed to strike out three times (one less than the game prior).  The Renegades win 27-1.  The details?  The writers blacked out, too.  The combined forces of a lingering Kraken and a band of Renegades was plenty to do everyone in.  'Nuff said.

Team Leaders, Week of 9/19
AVG/OBP/SLG: Two singles was all MagiCarp needed to rob the top spot.  His slash line is a monstrous .688/.722/1.125.  Those numbers top last year's best AVG/OBP (Nicholas "Hot Wheels" Wasilewski's .600/.684) and are contending for Ryan Cahill's peak of 1.258 SLG.

HR: All of the power-hitting males have now collected homeruns this season with Strait's blast in the second game against the Renegades.  Their respective SLG: Greaver - .722; B-Weave - .947; Strait - 1.000; MagiCarp - 1.125.

AVG/OBP/SLG: Despite hitting purely singles throughout the season, Edge went 3 for 4 against the Renegades and comes out ahead in everything with .409/.480/.409.
