As is only fitting, Team Blue wiped out the hated redcoats. The first shots were fired when Peterson and Cameron “Â€ÂœMinuteman” Maybin opened up on Kevin “Â€ÂœGeneral 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 “Â€ÂœIsrael Putnam”Â€Â Johnson, Juan “Â€ÂœWilliam Prescott”Â€Â Uribe and AJ “Â€ÂœTadeusz Kosciusko”Â€Â Pierzynski.
Our own side switching Jeff Francoeur”>Jeff “Benedict Arnold”Â€Â 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 “Â€ÂœGeorge Washington”Â€Â 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 “Â€ÂœCornwallis” Franco’s desperate breakout attempt was turned back to complete the victory. Tomorrow, Shelby “Andrew Jackson” Miller takes on Cole “Â€ÂœGeorge IV” Hamels for the sweep before heading out to Fort Shelby.
