VOTING CLOSES AT 10 AM SUNDAY
1) Darryl Wilson Robs Greg Hudson – On a ball hit deep to left curving with the wind, Janitor’s outfielder Darryl Wilson makes a bobbling catch — while falling into the outfield fence — to rob Greg Hudson of an extra base hit.
2) McClintock’s Handy Play – Back to back outs for our next two nominees — Mooseknuckles vs the Gumballers. This is the first out in the 6th inning. Almost bare handing it, pitcher Don McClintock is able to sprint to the ball and pick it up just before Zarobila can reach first.
3) Nitto Saves the Day – Again, from our game of the week, the game on the line, Mooseknuckles’ hitter Andrew Flowers crushes a ball to deep center. Jeffrey Nitto of the Gumballers races back and makes an over the shoulder catch at the fence to save the game (and end it) at 1-0 Gumballers. Make sure to watch for Gagnon’s reaction on the side.
4) Gagnon Lays Out – From the other side of this game, we have pitcher Matt Gagnon displaying how crucial every out can be in a tight game like this. Laying out down the first base line, Gagnon makes the out (and saves a run in the process).
5) Crawford Gets Robbed – In a game where any hit was critical (#TwitsBall), Twits star Stephen Crawford hits a line drive (that MAYBE would go out?) – but is instead robbed by the Dupont Circle Jerks Andrew Hill.
