"It's not worth winning if you can't win big!"

Hooks Falter in 9th to Lose 7-5

The ninth inning turned out to be a disaster for the Hooks and ultimately lead to them facing an elimination game today. Heading into the bottom of the ninth, CC lead 5-2. Leading the series 2-1 seemed like a real possibility. However, the inning started off with an Antonio Nunez throwing error and the rest of the inning followed suit. A single point runners on the corners. A groundout scored the first run and put a runner on second. Then Jacon Dorris hit a batter for runners on first and second. He then followed that HBP up with a strikeout. Two outs. Then comes the bases loading walk and the hook. In comes Ryan Deemes. Bases juiced with two outs in the bottom of the ninth with a 5-3 lead.

Grand slam....

Comical 21-6 Win for Lancaster

Let's dig into classic sports movies for a quote.

"It's not worth winning if you can't win big!"

Pointless and meaningless bonus points for who can name that movie.

It's hard to point to a hero when you win by 15 because there's not one. That's a collective team performance. But, you can highlight a guy who hit two home runs and seven RBI's. It helps that one of those home runs was a grand slam. That was Jason Martin. He drove in a third of the runs. So....game ball to Jason Martin.

Lancaster wins the series and moves on. They start their next series tonight against High Desert.

This box score is just silly.
