When I went to sleep last night, I expected to wake up and find that Jeremy Bleich had indeed taken the loss for the Waikiki Beach Boys. Bleich lasted only 3.1 innings giving up 3 earned runs on 6 hits. When I "checked out" the Beach Boys were down 5-2 late in the game.
So, I was very surprised to find that the Beach Boys actually came back like teams often do in wacky minor league games. They scored 4 in the top of the ninth to go up 6-5 over the Honu, taking Bleich off the hook for the loss.
The story doesn't end there, as Gameday shows. The Beach Boys ended up losing 7-6.
Damon Sublett was the DH and started the night with a golden sombrero before finishing 1 for 5.
