Call to Arms

12 Jun 2022

Once position players take the mound, it's a sure sign the game is out of hand. First baseman Frank Schwindel pitched the eighth inning for the Cubs and gave up two hits, including a homer to Kyle Higashioka (on the slowest pitch in MLB history--35 mph) that mercifully ended the scoring in the Yankees 18-4 romp over Chicago on Sunday. It was Higashioka's second home run of the game and the fourth of the day for New York who also got a pair of dingers from third baseman Matt Carpenter. Jameson Taillon pitched five innings for his seventh win against just one loss. The Yankees have 44 wins, the most in the majors this year.

GB55 (36) and MMc (36) both earned King of the Mountain. GB55 won his third KOTM this year, his second in as many weeks. MMc also won for the third time. Eight other players posted Qualifying Scores: Annabelle (34), MrNickJC (34), JeepCreeper (33), kjh98 (32), Mr. Jake 50 (31), jocko (31), Ricco1947 (29), and Jkloo (29).

In Team GridCard action, MMc (36) led the PGT to a win over Team Detwiler 127-117. The OG got a much-needed 114-99 win over TMac behind kjh98 (32). Team Collins rallied past VBar 112-97, MrNickJC (34) leading the way.
