Well... I’m still packed with adrenaline from last night. First, last night’s pitching performance was the moment when all of 17 year-old freshman phenom pitcher Christian “The Answer” Little’s potential became kinetic.

Of course, the next inning, Little scared the ever-loving crap out of us by flexing his hand and grimacing after a curve, turning all of us (me included) into tinfoil hat wearing MDs going full Zapruder film on the slow-mo of his final pitch.

Then, Big Fish came in mid-AB, couldn’t find the plate, and then lost the human/animal hybrid battle to some Elk with no knee ligaments. He would give up 3 runs on that Elko big fly in the 6th to tie the game. Murphy came in after, and was dominant except for one pitch to that same elk, who hit a solo shot this time to give Ole Piss the one run lead, prompting this:

Of course, the boys were not about to let any of that stop them—Chi Chi led off the 9th with a single (Vaz then pinch ran for him), Shockwave walked, and I.T. and Dom took care of the rest:
