USFBL - 2011 - Colby Lewis takes one for the team!

Rod Barajas launched 2 homeruns and had 7 RBI as the Quebec City Saints really laid it on the Wisconsin Cheeseheads 27 to 8. Barajas was a one-man wrecking crew.  He launched a three-run homer in the 3rd inning, clubbed a three-run home run in the 6th inning and lined a base-hit resulting in a run in the 8th inning. Quebec City lit up the scoreboard in the 6th inning which saw them plate 8 runs on 8 hits, the 7th inning when they had 5 runs on 5 hits and the 8th inning when they had 5 runs on 5 hits. The Quebec City offense man-handled the Wisconsin pitching staff as they scored in 7 of the 9 innings. Daniel Hudson(9-6) picked up the victory, allowing 3 runs in 6 innings. Kevin Slowey recorded his 2nd save. Colby Lewis(3-12) ended up with the loss.  He allowed 7 homeruns in 7 innings of work. 

USFBL - 2011 - 24 Innings - July 4th Celebration!

Minnesota @ California, July 4th, 2011:

Joel Hanrahan had a strong outing and first baseman Lance Berkman had 5 hits and 4 RBI at Comerica Park as the very strong California Bees beat the Minnesota Mud Dogs in 24 innings by the count of 14 to 13.  The score was tied at 5 after nine. California came out on top in the 24th inning. The key offensive moment was provided by Scott Hairston who excited the crowd when he smacked a three-run homer. California lit up the scoreboard in the 24th inning when they had 9 runs on 7 hits. A wild and woolly affair, this game saw the lead change 6 times.  Josh Tomlin(5-9) got the win allowing 8 runs in 3 innings. Francisco Liriano(2-2) suffered the loss in relief. He was touched for 8 hits and 3 walks in 2 and 2/3 innings.
