As is only fitting, Team Blue wiped out the hated redcoats. The first shots were fired when Peterson and Cameron “Minuteman” Maybin opened up on Kevin “General Gage” Correia. The real damage was done when the Phil charged uphill into a few volleys right into the whites of their eyes from Kelly “Israel Putnam” Johnson, Juan “William Prescott” Uribe and AJ “Tadeusz Kosciusko” Pierzynski.
Our own side switching Jeff Francoeur”>Jeff “Benedict Arnold” Francoeur apparently turned over our secret plans for crappy defense over to the Phils as he overthrew a cutoff man to go with two Phillies errors on the night. Maybin swamp-foxed one from here to Athens in the southern half of the second. In the fourth Alex “George Washington” Wood crossed the Delaware to surprise Odubel “Hessian” Herrera. Maybin, Markakis and Johnson saratoga’ed Correia into surrender to make it 9-1. Darin “Guy Carleton” Ruf put one over the walls of Quebec for three runs, and Herrera homered a few innings later to cut the lead to four.
Jason “Rochambeaux” Grilli blockaded the Phils in the ninth and Maikel “Cornwallis” Franco’s desperate breakout attempt was turned back to complete the victory. Tomorrow, Shelby “Andrew Jackson” Miller takes on Cole “George IV” Hamels for the sweep before heading out to Fort Shelby.
