Last night’s game was... something. Drake “Safari Planet” Fellows was hot garbage and allowed a last place team to plate 8 runs on him. He didn’t even get through the fourth inning. No matter—our offense has the ability to bludgeon other teams to death.
Case in point: our 9 hole hitter, Julian “Chinfante” Infante, went 3-4 with a Grand Salami and 6 RBI.

It wasn’t just Chinfante, of course. Every one of our 9 starters recorded at least one hit.
Oh, and some records were set:

However, it could be argued this play summed up the game much more succinctly.

That’s 9 wins in a row. 10 is a much nicer number. Kumar, you’ve got your marching orders.
