We made a valliant effort to get in the swing of things so we wouldn't be in our usual first game coma. We came to town 1 day early and made it the Namioli Complex about noon on Wednesday January 19th. BUT...the Nextel Heroes (Korean minor league team) and the Nor'easters and everybody else just had use of the batting cages. The intense rain had made the grass to soggy for use. So, it's on to an important Division game with the Black Sheep.

First Blood

We set the Black Sheep down in the top of the first without any damage courtesy of a nice 6-4-3 DP dousing a small threat.
We were the home team, and "Mike" led off with a walk. Grass SAC'd him to second and Supe drew another walk. Ice was hit by a pitch, and we had the bases loaded...nice opening opportunity.The Black Sheep hurler settled down and induced force outs from Ricky Bobby and Bullet. Nor'easters 1, Rebels 0 after 1.

The Black Sheep Don't Suck

The second time thru the Black Sheep batting order it was pretty obvious that their first six hitters were dangerous. With two outs in the 3rd, they laced Ricky Bobby for 5 straight hits and 3 runs. The top of their order nicked Grass for 3 more in the 6th and Buck for one in the 8th. We were still sleeping.

Black Sheep 8, Nor'easters 4

Game 1 Box Score 1-20-11
