Bonghitters lose close one

In a nailbiter, WNYC edged the Bonghitters, 6-5, on Monday night in Central Park. The Bonghitters took an early 5-0 lead, but saw it quickly evaporate as WNYC - New York's public-radio station - tied the game in the 3rd on a homerun. Both teams went scoreless until the bottom of the 7th, when WNYC knocked in the winning run with two outs and runners on 1st and 2nd. On-air host Brian Lehrer, who singled to lead off the inning, scored the run.

With the victory, WNYC snapped a 4-game losing streak to the Bonghitters, who beat them 9-2 on June 1. Since the two teams started playing each other in 2003, the Bonghitters are 7-2. Virtually every game has been low-scoring and hard fought. A rubber match - to decide who wins the season series - will be played on Aug. 28.

The 6-4 Bonghitters don't play again until Aug. 3 - a rematch against DC Comics, who they defeated, 17-12, on June 22.



Looks like the Bonghitters are having a down year...

Just like the Yankees!
The year is not over yet is it? I'm sure you will rise to the occasion.
Keep on keeping on.
