Shocked? Mildly Amused? Ligers Win 2-1 Updated.

March Madness took over the PAL fields this week with upsets happening left and right, but sadly there were no scantily clad cheerleaders for these games. The Ligers came into the game against the Shockers as a decided underdog. They only showed up in the picks 5 times and didn't even get an upset pick from the Gameday crew. But, like a mid-major full of kids that even the most skilled of admissions coordinators couldn't get in to a power-house, the Ligers were determined to get their "One Shining Moment".

The Ligers started the game off right with a chug-off win from David G. that would make the Dyson vacuum guy proud. The Shockers scored a run in the top of the first when I decided that, rather than have a close play at third, I would instead throw the ball somewhere in the vicinity of Pasco county. The Ligers answered in the bottom of the second when Mike H. lined a shot to right, dodged a throw that rolled deep into center field, and made it around the bases for a two run home run. No runs were scored by either team after the second. The Ligers kept a lid on the Shockers with great defense, highlighted by a two strikeout performance from Bull on the mound. The Ligers will miss his pitching next season when Bull will try to make it to "The Show" in the very competitive Korean league.

  • Rob popped out to first with runners on 1st and 2nd, this is not clutch.
  • Nate was our home plate ref. He is, in fact, better at this than Flo.
  • It doesn't make sense to have a bullet-point list with only two items, so here you go.

Hopefully the Ligers can carry the momentum from this upset victory into the flip-cup tourney on Saturday and pull off a repeat championship.
