Zog: Hounds Squish the Spiders

It was a crucial game for the Hounds coming off their first loss of the season in the prior game.  It was another trek to Randall’s Island, this time a balmy 88 degrees.  After introductions and welcoming the newest Hound to the squad, Lisa, the team was ready to get down to business.

Wink did his job as Lead-off getting the Hounds off to a great start, and contributed to 1 of 3 runs scored in the first inning.  In the bottom of the first, once again, Juiena took the mound in her 4th consecutive start.  The Hounds defense was a bit shaky in the first couple of innings, but they were able to keep the damage to only 4 runs.   After the bottom of the 2nd, the Hounds stellar defense and consistent pitching from Juiena kept the Spiders scoreless.

The offensive stars were Wink, Iain, and Dave, combined hitting .833 and generating 10 RBIs.  Murph drove in the 11th RBI with his triple. Final Score: Hounds 11, Spiders 4.

This was a critical win for our team. Massive props to Juiena for taking over and leading us to victory. We redeemed ourselves after coughing one up on Randall's a couple of weeks ago. Now we have some momentum heading into our next game.
