Oct 03 2049: This week's double feature of "Biloxi does Baseball": Failing a play that would never be the right play in ANY circumstance and a total of 11 runs allowed post-8th inning
- by JV-Tosshin on April 7th, 2021
In a rare double feature of "Biloxi does Baseball", the Mississippi team was leading Bangor 5-4 heading into the 9th, when they let the Mainians tie the game.
In the bottom of the 9th, the Scorpions got men on the corners with 2 out. 90 feet away from a win with pinch hitter Herb Andrew up. Star 1st baseman Dirk Wahl, in what can only be described as a terrible lapse of judgment, and tried to steal 2nd base at a time when this would NEVER be the right move.
Caught stealing 2nd base, Biloxi proceeded to allow 4 runs in the 11th and lost 9-5.
In what critics are already calling "The most Biloxi thing to ever happen", the Scorpions then proceeded to allow 6 runs in the top of the 9th of the next game, losing 8-5.
Statistics are adamant the Scorpions will go 96-64 this season, which at this point would require a 12-1 finish. Not crossing fingers, but Biloxi has been the definition of streaky this season.
Sep 12 2049: In today's episode of "Wacky Biloxi baseball hijinks": A 20 inning game!
- by JV-Tosshin on April 1st, 2021
Today we learned what happens when the Scorpions are without both their leading position players, as Melvin and Wahl were both injured.
Wahl having been out for 8-9 games straight has already shown how 1st base turns into a revolving door, but without Melvin, what should have been a routine victory over the cellar-deep Fort Pierce Knights turned into a surreal, 20-inning slog where the Scorpions put a man on 2nd 5 times with no success, before reserve OF Herb Andrew hit a solo, walk-off homerun to end it in the bottom of the 20th.
Sep 05 2048: Y'all please close out your innings
- by JV-Tosshin on January 13th, 2021
For the 2nd series in a row, the Scorpions were faced with a 1 run lead, empty bases and 2 outs in an inning, and for the second series in a row, the Scorpions decided to just implode for a third of an inning and blow both games in embarrassing fashion, ruining two otherwise close, defensive games.
Coach McRae assures that this is purely happenstance, and that the rumors of the Scorpions pitching corps believing that 2 outs ends an inning are unfounded.
Jul 27 2048: The Bishop Enigma
- by JV-Tosshin on January 2nd, 2021
Here just halfway through the Scorpions' 1st season under new management, and the season so far is deemed as a success when looking at the team's previous seasons. The Scorpions need only 8 wins to match their total from last season and could, if they hold their current pace, get the team's first winning season in nearly a decade, with a top half finish not out of the question.
A total gutting of most of the batting and fielding corps has led the way in this improvement, with three hitters making the All-Star game, a proud moment for a long-battered club.
Pitching has remained somewhat erratic throughout the season, with management only belatedly starting to replace a corps which buckled far too often under pressure, and still do sometimes.
Chief among Coach McRae's concerns is the inability to get the team's ace, Ronald Bishop, to actually pitch well, with the pitcher having been ice-cold all season and only recently shifted to a bull-pen role where his struggles so far are continuing.
While Bishop's stats does not indicate he should be in as much trouble as he is, his 4-9 record speaks for itself, and new signing Ontivaros has been slotted in as a stop-gap while coaching tries to figure out what to do with a star who's clearly deeply rattled by the takeover.
Nevertheless, erratic pitching aside, morale and fan mood is up, as is the team's overall performance, and the Scorpions are optimistic for the latter half of the season. At the very least, they know that their erratic pitching at least makes for exciting viewing. Apart from when elite closer Ruben Diaz is on the mound, you can never be quite sure a game is over in Biloxi, no matter how big a lead the home team has.
Happy second half of 2048!
