The Batter's Box – Episode Seven Capsule

Posted by on

First round action continued this week as West Roxbury's Bill squared off against former Fenway employee Mike from East Boston (aka Ebo). In the first inning, Bill loaded the bases with singles in the first, and worked the count in a key spot to figure out a difficult question and jump out to a commanding 3-0 lead. Mike used his pinch hitter and worked the count early in the game but left two runners in scoring position. Not much doing in the second inning. Hard to believe that the Sox have had four players hit two grand slams in one game. Also difficult to believe that Yaz did not hold every Red Sox record when he retired, but according to their question he only had seven. Did not expect a Chiang Kai-shek reference, but the Batter’s Box will surprise you now and then. Bill upped his lead to 5-1 in the third and much like all game, Mike was not able to get anything started in his rally. Mike was a character to say the least; Steve would have had some fun with this guy had he advanced.
