Hogs continue undefeated season
"C Squared" leads the way
with monster moon shot

By Boe Hayward

November 16, 2005

The B.O.S Hogs were scheduled to play Salmon Nation on a balmy November evening, but the Fish failed to show, choosing to swim upstream rather than playing the fist place Board of Supes team, giving the Hogs their 4th win of the season.

"The word must be out," said Hogs utility star John Gavin. "The league knows our record and I think they may be scared."

The Hogs did get to play though, and dominated an overmatched Barclays Global team 17 to 4.

The Hogs did not miss MVP candidate Sean Elsbernd (on his honeymoon), John Avalos (tending to a sick child) or Amanda "Doozer" Kahn (resting her graduate school brain) and coasted to a big exhibition win.

Cassandra "C-Squared" Costello mashed a moon shot into the warm November air and cruised around the bases for the first female homer of the year. Squared also played stellar defense earning her the game ball and MVP honors for the night.

A modest Costello explained that she "could have hit the ball better. I am just pumped to get my first dong of the year and help the team continue our streak."

The Hogs pitched four players in the win. Boe Hayward earned got the win for his 4th of the year. Boris Delepine, John Gavin and Sarah Ballard, earning her first save of the season, relieved Hayward showing the teams depth on the mound.

Angella "V-Neck" Calvillo showed her toughness and dedication with a collision at first base. Calvillo slammed into the base runner during the 4th inning. "I want the out no matter what the situation is," exclaimed Calvillo. Calvillo and the baserunner did not suffer injuries, but the Global batter did seem to be despondent after the close play at first.

After coming up empty in the first two innings, the Hogs offense, as they have become accustomed to do, exploded for 17 runs in the next three innings. Costello's home run was all the team wanted to talk about after the game.

"Are we surprised? Hell no. After seeing that hit, I think that men are the ones that need Title IX programs," said power hitting Hog Frances Hsieh.

Rob Black played a solid game and was, as always, a contributor at the plate. Black drove in 3 runs on the night.

Judson True played a solid left field and may have found his natural position on the field. After catching a deep fly to left, True said that he knew that the ball was coming his way. "I knew he was going to hit it to me and I am just glad that I was positioned well. I have to thank Coach Elaine Forbes for telling me where to be."

Boris Delepine showed his power stroke with a triple, double and a single, driving in 4 runs. "I can't wait to tell Tolya what his daddy did tonight." Leaving the field, Delepine told reporters in his native tongue "bonne nuit et au revoir" as he headed home for quality time with his family.

All in all, the Hogs have to be pleased after their 3-week layoff. The Hogs haven't missed a beat and are ready for their final two games of the season. The Hogs have mathematically clinched a tie for first in the league, but the team is not looking ahead to the playoffs.

"We are taking this one game at a time and we want to finish the season strong. I hope the 1972 Miami Dolphins are paying attention," said Catcher Lisa Williams-Black referencing the last professional sports team that finished a season with an undefeated record.

The Hogs also featured star sub Jamie McGoldrick. Jamie played great defense and also smashed a triple to deep left. "I just wish I hit it as far as my lady," referencing his power hitting girlfriend who later drove him in with a sacrifice fly to center.

The Hogs plan on having Elsbernd, Avalos and Doozer Kahn for their next game.

Next game: Monday, November 21st at 8:30 versus the Master Batters (2-3)

Home Runs: Costello (1)

Win: Hayward (4-0-1)
Hold: Delepine (1), Gavin (1)
Save: Ballard (1)
