Week 2 recaps
June 12th, 2006: Lamb Field 5:30pm
25 Cheesey Poof's 7 (3 inn)
The high powered offense of the Cyclones overwhelmed
the Poof's, notching out an amazing 25 runs in just 3 innings of play. The game was called short due to the Poof's captain
(Jenny "Pancake" Lamb) having to leave for a board meeting. The one thing that was impressive in the Poof's 25-7 loss, was
their ability to hit off of southpaw Kyle LeClair. Torin Neilson of the Poof's hit a couple of dingers over the 'Big Stinky'.
Courtney Weller was also impressive because of her ability to put the ball in play and to get into the head of the opposing
team. Courtney is the leading canidate for 'most ridiculous wiffler on the field' award for her insane antics. Props.

Khans 21 Bombers 39
What has been called the Home Run derby by
many. This game featured a combined 60 runs between both teams. Jay Rozell took to the mound for the Bombers. Jay pitched
a gem for the first 3 innings while not allowing a run. It wasn't until the 4th inning when things fell apart for him. Rozell
surrendered a Grandslam to Andy Fassett, which eventually led to a mercy inning. The Khan's big inning wasn't enough to win
the game as Nick Sutter came up big again for the Bombers. Sutter had 15 RBI's and 3 longballs to help the Bombers to their
second straight win.
June 14th, 2006: Hess Field 5:30pm
Shapoopies 7 Yankees 19
The Shapoopies looked to try and pick up their first win of the
season, but wasn't able to get any clutch hits with men on base. Yankee pitcher Joe Capobianco was brilliant. He worked in
risers and sliders to keep batters off balance. The only bright spot in the Shapoopie line was Marc Palmiotto, as he went
5 for 5 with a pair of RBI's. Yankee Brandon Denoyer hit an insane 5 longballs en route to a 19-7 win.
June 14th, 2006: Hess Field 7:30pm
Circumcisers 2 Canada 25
What was supposed to be game of the week, turned
into rape of the week. Dustin Quay was not able to find the strike zone, or even the backstop as he walked a career high 19
batters. If it wasn't for the Circumcisers middle relief the game would have been even more of a blow out. Dave Wolf and Ryan
Mugits combined were lights out going 2.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 K. On the other side of the ball, Cy Young Chris Hess pitched great
going 5.2 IP and striking out 13 en route to his first win of the season. Ashley Luongo came in and pitched for one out
in the 6th. The only time these two teams could meet again would the be finals.
2006: Lamb Field 5:30pm
Cheesey Poof's 11 Bombers
This game resembled more of a 5 K marathon then a
wiffleball game. The matchup included an insane 29 combined walks. The game went about 2 hours long before finally ending.
Neilson picked up his second loss of the season, but at times did show some great stuff. Torin had a career high 8 K's on
the mound. Courtney Weller was doing the same old same old, getting into the Bombers heads. Her on the field humor has made
all of the Cheesey Poof's the most fun to watch. On another surprising note: the Poof's put up 11 runs against a respectable
pitcher. Nick surrendered a hit by everysingle Cheesey Poof. Not bad for a team that no one things much of. Watch
out, these Poof's are bound for an upset sometime in the season.
June 14th, 2006: Lamb
Khans 5 Canada 13
The Khans put up one heck of a fight against Team
Canada, as they had the lead for most of the game. Matt Swasey took to the mound for the Khans pitching a great game. His
slider had some good movement, as he had many batters ducking out of the way only to watch the ball hit the strikezone. Trailing
4-3 in the bottom of the 4th, Ashley Luongo opened the game up by hitting her second dinger of the season, a grand slam, over
the LF wall. Hess also hit a 2 HR tater over the CF wall to give Canada a 9-4 lead. That was all Stegmann needed. George picked
up his second straight win as a Canadian. Key highlights of the game: Andy Fassett turning a triple play. Here's the scenario,
Hess is up to bat. Elisa at third, Ashley at second and George at first. Hess hits a rocket to CF only to be robbed by a diving
Andy Fassett. Andy then dives to tag out Ashley, then sprints and dives to tag third base before Elisa gets back. Unbelievable.
The Khans gave Canada a fight to the very end, but it wasn't enough.
