On Star Wars night at The Ted, the Rebels used The Force and a couple of long balls to overcome the Empire’s stormtroopers 2-1.
Julio Skywalker continues to mystify, as he bullseyed womprats from his T16 to move to 5-0 on Tatooine with a 2.04 ERA. In other parts of the Imperium, he’s 1-4 with an ugly 7.40 ERA. Maybe it’s the gravitational influence of the twin suns that gets his slider moving. I don’t know, and I’m
sure he wishes he knew what was going on himself. He probably spends too much time on the road complaining about not getting to go hang out at Toshi Station with his friends, which affects his road performance.
The Rebels jumped out to an early lead in the bottom of the second inning, as Jonny-Wan Kenobi showed why he’s a perfectly cromulent player against southpaws by launching his 4th homer of the season off Morgan. He may only be a shadow of the warrior he was when he fought in The Clone Wars, but upon occasion he can still fight the good fight.
It stayed that way until the 7th, when a bit of nifty defense by Yoda Simmons showed why he’s the best shortstop in all of Space. Cameron the Hutt singled down the left field line, and Simmons
hustled over to the wall to grab the ball and threw out Hutt who was trying to stretch the hit to a double. Hutt was initially called safe, no doubt because as the criminal godfather of all Tatooine, he had bribed the second base umpire, but after a review, the call was overturned. Hutt immediately complained that the crew chief was fooled by a Jedi mind trick, but to no avail.
Juan Solo provided the final run in the bottom of the 7th, hitting another solo shot off Morgan, which got out of the park in a hurry. Like a Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs hurry.
