Flying Squirrels Open with a Win But Abort the Landing

By Boris Badenov, 03/25/23, 1:30PM CDT


       The TSSL Flying Squirrels overcame their captain's horrendous pitching and egregious Wildcard Rule malpractice to edge the Alexander the Great Woodpeckers 8-5 in the Opener.  The win gave the Squirrels their first winning streak of the year.  Tim "King" Jamieson chipped in a homer, double, walk and three RBI.  Zane "Grey" Belyea went 3 for 3 with a single, double and triple and 4 RBI (hitting for the 3 at-bat cycle?).  Omar O"Monument"valle went 3 for 3.

    The Nightcap was against the home standing Casper Wyoming Storm.  In the top of the first, the Squirrels took advantage of 7 walks, putting up a 6-spot, highlighted by a Tim"ber" Jamieson 3-run blast.  The Storm stormed back with 4 in the bottom of the inning, 3 more in the 3rd and 6 more in the 5th.  The Storm weathered a comeback by the Squirrels, led by Scott "Hanging" Chaddick's perfect game at the plate (2 for 2 with 2 walks), and hung on for the 13-12 victory.
