The Spirit swept the Pride @ Nashua!!! Well, sort of ;)
Tonight was an epic beatdown by the Spirit - it was getting painful by the end of the game. The Pride's Jose Gonzales knocked in an RBI single in the first to give Nashua the 1-0 lead, but from there, the Spirit went on an itty-bitty 12-0 run.
As much as it pains me to say it, Josue Jesus del Cristo Savior El Stiffton Lopez is tonight's player of the game, by far. He went 4-for-f*cking-5 with 4 RBI. I was not in Nashua, so I don't know for sure, but according to reports, this is the same Lopez guy from before. Maybe it's the other Josue.
Alex Trezza gets an honorable mention: a homer (his third in as many nights), two doubles, and a walk.
Chris Farley was iffy but effective enough to win the game tonight, going 5 2/3 innings and giving up just the 1 run in the first. He worked his way into many jams, but he was able to wriggle out of them.
Derek Drage and Shawn McNamara finished the job for the Spirit.
Humorously, the Pride brought in a position player to pitch in the 9th, Brian Duplissie, as the Spirit ran up the score with 4 more runs in the final frame.
Japanese import Eiji Yano, making his debut for Nashua, got smacked around by the Spirit in 4 innings. Can we start calling Nashua "Japan West?"
Fun is good.
