The Grilled Cheese Sandwiches came out kickin' last night, scoring nine runs in the first two innings and holding on for a 9-6 win over Kickin' It Old School.
The Sammies' first five kickers all reached base, including Sierra Navarra, who started the scoring onslaught with a two-run triple out of the cleanup spot. Kern followed with an RKI double and later scored on a single by Yuval, sliding into home and cutting up her leg. She is listed as probable for next week's game.
"She was pussing," Kern's roommate Squints reported this morning, in a probable HIPAA violation. The league is investigating.
Big added a first-inning RKI as well, then he and Yuval shared a really awkward post-game moment involving a french fry.
"Sweet mother of mercy this just ruined my morning," said co-captain Ray after viewing photographic evidence of said event.
The Grilled Cheeses added four runs in the next inning, including a two-run blast by Rob, who cemented his status as game MVP by stopping a fourth-inning KIOS blast that was bound to be a home run, thus preserving the lead.
"There were a lot of things that contributed to our win, but I think the key factor was that we scored more runs than the other team," said Tristan, who made his own contribution by purchasing an authentic Oktoberfest stein to be used as the team MVP trophy this season.
Asian, Seamus, Erin, Lindsey, J.P., Marshall, Marisa and Phil also played a part on offense for the Sammies, who improved to 2-0 on the year. Their next game is Monday against the Bootleggers, whose team motto is, "Some teams have kickball references in their names. Others have alcohol references. We have both."
