Just a quick note to tide us over till the recaps: the Feesh fried the Fryers 8-6 tonight as the Iron Giant crushed a 462-foot two run bomb down his personal power alley onto the walkway between the left field scoreboard and the Budweiser Bar to put the Rainbow Warriors up 2-0 in the first, then dinked a second one just over the right field wall in the third to put them up 3-0. A couple of innings later he smacked a two out, two run double down the left field line. A few innings later the Fryers were having nothing more to do with him and walked him, whereupon he scored on Marcell the Damned’s three run 425 foot shot to the foot of Tommy. Here’s what it all looked like when the mist lifted: the Iron Giant’s batting .290 with 49 byebyes and 105 ribbies; Marcell the Damned is batting .311 with 30 tharshegoes and 101 ribbies. Nice heart-o-th’-order numbers. The Feesh find themselves at 64-63, first time they’ve gotten clear of the Strange Attractor since they were 10-9 on April 26, and they’re struggling against those gossamer reality waves as they claw their way back into the wild card picture.
