Lazy Flamingo sacked by Bailey’s Baggers
It was a dual for the ages – a battle between “The Beaks” and “The Baggers.”
The Lazy Flamingo was all feathered up for the game, but they couldn’t quite recover from an early 9-2 deficit they fell into at the hands of Bailey’s Baggers.
Despair never clutched the Flamingo heart, though. The Lazy Flamingo picked up their beaks and began pecking away at the Bailey’s lead. By the last inning, the Lazy narrowed the score to a 2 run difference. Some great fielding made by the Baggers, however, stopped the Lazy Flamingo in mid-flight.
“Those first two innings really clipped our wings,” said Lazy Captain Tracy Brunner.
The final score was 15-13, with Bailey’s pulling out the victory.
For the Baggers, it was a must-win. Now with a .500 record, they are still in the hunt to make the post-season tournament. The odds are stacked against them, though, being two games behind the other teams and only four weeks left in the season.
The league is rampant with rumors of the return of Harold “The Hammer” Law. If true, such an event could be the tipping point in favor of the Baileys. “Beware of the Baggers,” warned veteran Scott Conway.
