Momars Week 4 2012
May 17, 2011. Week 4.
up just a couple runs short in week three, Momars were eager to get on the
field and show that last week was a fluke. A few Momars
met at JJ's Clubhouse
for a little pre-game warm up. Knowing that the theme for the
late night contest was Poncho Deano Tequila Revisited Night, Dean "Poncho" Heller came
well prepared to celebrate.
As fate would have it, the Thursday night dinner special at JJ's Clubhouse
just so happened to
be tacos. This surely must have been a good sign for Momars.
There was some concern that playing in a poncho and sombrero might impede Ponchos
ability to play the game at his full potential.
Cory "Pappy" Sommer was concerned that "the hat might slow Dean down".
Rachel "Rach" Kissiah
was quick to point out that Momars has no cause to worry because
"Dean runs like a ballerina" anyway.
Poncho was not going to let any of those
smart-ass comments stop him, for he was determined to take the field in his
"Shmedium Can Cun" poncho.
It was apparent that Poncho had acquired
his snappy cover when he was a slightly smaller softball player.

Deano Tequila Revisited Night"
Twin" Norton and Lisa
"USA" Norton managed to
find an ice machine this week and had the "Big Red" Momars
beverage cooler cleaned and full of ice cold beverages.
LaVern "Sailor" Hericks
wasted no time on the mound and struck out the first Heavy Hitter batter.
After a lone single, Rick "Rookie" Williamson
shuffled a grounder to Cheri "Moonshine" Anderson and Matt "Clutch" Welage
ran down an infield popup and Momars quickly were going to
step up to the plate and start taking their own hacks.
Rachel started the
night off with a solid single to left but was doubled off when the Heavy
Hitter second base person made a great catch on a sharply hit ball
"New Guy" Riley.
Julie "Southpaw" Hanken started things back up with
a nice single to right and Poncho whacked a nice double to
left, but to third and second was as close as Momars was going
to get to scoring in their first inning at the dish.
After a quick couple outs,
Heavy Hitters managed to get a ball past all the Momars
fielders and scratch out two runs. Moonshine seemed to be
so disgusted with Momars play that she called off Poncho
on the next fly ball for the third out of the inning.
Rookie started the Momars
half of the second with a three pitch walk. Usa moved Rookie
to third and Clutch punched a ball toward second that proved too
much to handle collecting the first RBI of the night for Momars.
Momars managed to load the bases but sadly a popup to the
pitcher ended the threat and a big inning.
defense was solid in the third in inning. After a high fly ball to Rach
for the first out, Momars shortstop Rookie scooped up a couple
ground balls and forced out two Heavy Hitter base runners
unassisted in a row to get the Momars fielders of the field and
their bats back in the batter's box.
slapped a single to left to lead off the Momars half of the
fourth inning. Southpaw walked her way on to first base
and Poncho punched in New Guy with a hard knock to left
for the game tying run. Rookie then lofted one high and
deep and was able to circle and clear the bases. Usa, Clutch
"Willa" Aitchison all hit singles to load the bases. Sailor
grounded into a force out but managed to push a run across. After Rach
took a free pass to first, New Guy poked one to right allowing
two more Momars base runners to reach home safely. Momars
totaled seven runs in inning and batted around for the first time this
young season. Could this be Poncho Corona maraca magic?
But Heavy Hitters were not going to go away silently.
They managed to score four runs before Sailor finally got a Heavy
Hitter to foul out for the first out of the inning. The next
batter managed to reach on shaky Momars fielding to load the
bases. A very fortuitous infield fly rule out and a sweet Sailor
strike out managed to hold back the flood gates and limit the damage.
But Momars first
two batters in the bottom of the fourth did little. Rookie
doubled and shoddy Heavy Hitter fielding allowed Usa and
Clutch to make it possible for Rookie to score the lone
run in the Momar fourth.
Mattox decided it was time to get the amigos sitting on
the bench sucking down the cervezas into the game and on to the
field. Whether this was a good idea or not is debatable. Heavy
Hitters connected on back to back singles in the top of the fifth
before flying out twice to Rach in left. But one more
single, meant one more run to the Heavy Hitter total. But
Sailor wanted more too and managed to strike out the next
batter for the third out of the inning.
Sailor started the
inning with a walk and decided he did not need a runner. Rach
followed and singled placing runners on the corners. Sparky
slapped a shot to short that the Heavy Hitter fielder bobbled
and made Sparky run out down to first to be called out. Southpaw
followed with another shot to short but the runners were able to
advance and score. Then Poncho started the hit parade
with a two out double. Alan "Books" Cochran
did not know, but he was about to get busy. Moonshine
reached. Rookie and Usa singled. The Twin
drove a double. Jilla singled in another couple Momars.
Seven more to the Momars tally.
Then the Heavy Hitters awoke
and lived up to their name. Hit, hit, hit, hit, hit, hit, before
the first out. Heavy Hitters kept on hitting and kept Momars
fielders running around and Books pencil getting shorter and
shorter. But a sharp grounder to Pappy and an on target
toss to The Twin created the second out of the inning.
And the Hitters kept coming. Hit, hit, hit,
HOMERUN! With the bases clear, Pappy and The Twin connected
again to get Momars out of the inning. But Heavy
Hitters had scored eleven more runs and now were leading by two.
||If there ever was a time for a little Poncho Power now was the time.
Rach started things off with
a walk. Sparky doubled to put the tying run at
second. Southpaw connected with a double of her own
collecting two RBI and tying the game.
| TEQUILA! Matt, Tom, Mark, Cheri, Dean, Lisa, Jerel, Cory, Rachel and
And now it was Poncho
Power time and Poncho delivered with a hit to the outfield
that allowed Southpaw, running all the way, to score on a close play at
Ah yes... another Momars
victory. Oh how sweet it is..

was quoted as saying, "Always trust your cape." TEQUILA!
