Game 1 - Elizabeth Resolutes 24 - Gothams 6

Game 2 - Elizabeth Resolutes 22 - Gothams 12

Sorry for the delay, but I've been wandering all over the country trying to figure out how to write up this summary. I went from being stuck in the left lane when I should have been in the right lane, then I went around a traffic circle 7 times before exiting, made 6 U-turns, backed up a few blocks, and then just screamed out "Fiddlesticks! I'm not following Shoeless ever again!". So now that I'm back on track, here's the summary from our last doubleheader vs. the Elizabeth Resolutes on September 12, 2004 in NJ:

Game 1: 1873 rules:

A mighty tough outing for the beloved Gothams. Although we got off to a quick start with 2 runs in the 1st inning on a Slider walk, a single by Stacks, a fielder's choice by Shoeless, a single by Spike, and a flurry of Stolen Bases, the Resolutes pounded out hit after hit for a final tally of 24-6 in 6 innings. The Gothams only managed to Chicago the Resolutes in the 4th inning as they scored 4 in the 1st, 6 in the 2nd, 2 in the 3rd, and 6 more in both the 5th and 6th innings. In the process, the Resolutes succeeded in reconfiguring the defensive alignment by reconfiguring the digits of both Digits and Trolley with line drives. he Gothams teamed up to make sure the Resolutes at 5-6 out an inning being the generous team that we are. Trolley even laid down on his back after fielding a ground ball and was unable to crawl to 3rd base for the out. The Gothams did however tally 2 aces in the 4th on a single by Digits, a double by Kid and an error by the Resolutes on Rugs grounder. The final 2 aces came in the 6th on a double by Trolley, a walk to Stacks, and singles by Shoeless and Spike. Unfortunately, the Gothams were Chicagoed in the other 3 innings.

Game 2: 1864 Rules:

The Gothams played much better this games, but the result was similar as the Resolutes defeated the mighty Gotham by a tally of 22-12. Both teams were Chicagoed in the 1st inning. The Resolutes took a 2-0 lead in the top of the 2nd, but the Gothams came right back in their half of the inning. Kid led off with a single and 2 stolen bases, Rugs singled in a run and stole 2nd, Stacks singled in a run and stole 2nd, Slider reached on a strikeout and a wild pitch. Digits reached on a fielder's choice (Stacks was thrown out at the plate), and Shoeless and Spike closed things out with 2 more singles to give the Gothams a 4-2 lead after 2 innings. This was followed by the infamous Gotham inning as the Resolutes tallied 9 times in the 3rd to go ahead for good. The Gothams were Chicagoed the next 2 innings while the Resolutes tallied 3 more times in the 4th and 5 more times in the 5th. The Gothams added 3 in the 5th on a double by Shoeless and singles by Spike and Trolley. The Gothams did not score again until the 8th when Stacks and Slider singled and Shoeless cleared the bases with a triple (piano on his back and all). Down 22-9 entering the 9th the Gothams attempted a mighty comeback on singles and stolen bases by Trolley, Kid, Mixer and Stacks, but ultimately were only able to tally 3 times to end the game at 22-12. Notable performances by Shoeless, who went 4-5 and missed the cycle by a home run and Stacks who went 5-5. Best defensive play goes to Digits and Mixer for combining to catch a fly ball that first went off Digits digits and into Mixer's hands.
