My Office Finishes Regular Season with FFT Win
     July 12th, 2007 @ 8:45 PM
With so many records on the line tonight many players were disappointed when the other Palouse MS was only able to get seven people to come to the game. My Office finished out the season with a .500 record.

Scotty Anderson needed one double and one walk to tie both records. Michael Bryant already had tied the doubles record and was going for one more double to own the record. Bill Cole needed a 2 for 2 or better night to own the batting average title. But because the game was no played none of these players had a chance to pick up those records.
Two Weeks Off Does Not Hurt My Office
     July 10th, 2007 @ 6:15 PM
Taking nearly two weeks since their last game, My Office still played sharp. Both on offense and defense we played well. With one exception person, everyone on the team got a basehit. With the end of the season looming several players were getting close to tying or breaking team records. The team is also on a comeback trail. Having won three straight games with only one more in the regular season.

Taj Mahon-Haft, Nick Barry, and Bill Cole each had at least three hits in the game. With Barry and Cole each hitting two doubles. Scotty Anderson was part of a great defensive play where Mahon-Haft's throw from third was in the dirt coming to first base. Anderson scooped it up for an out and threw home to Brian Mitzel to complete a double play.
My Office Cruises to Victory
     June 26th, 2007 @ 7:30 PM
Starting the game out with only nine players Gropps was at a disadvantage to the bats of My Office. But after the first inning the scored was knotted up at three runs each. My Office then started to pour it on in the third inning scoring eight runs and batting around. My Office put four additional runners across the plate in the fourth inning to coast onto a ten run victory.

In the second inning My Office's pitcher Dave Meddish only had to throw three pitches and recorded three outs. The first out was a foul-ball pop-up on the first base side. The second out was a easy grounder. The third out was a fly ball.
My Office Gets Rare Win
     June 19th, 2007 @ 6:15 PM
For the first time in several years My Office has not been in the battle for first place in the B-League. You would have to go back to the 2000 season when after eleven games My Office Tavern had a record of 5 and 6. This year, though we have talent, we cannot string together the hits when necessary. Today when we were worried about a forefeit happening because guys were coming late. But we had nine, enough to play a game. In the last meeting Tubbs scored seven runs in the sixth inning to win the game. With only nine players would My Office be able to hold off Tubbs?

My Office went out on Defense and set the tone. Even with nine players My Office was able to stop any kind of real rally from starting. Coincidentially Tubbs again scored seven runs in the sixth inning, but this time it was not enough. My Office had the bats going every inning making hits left and right which lead My Office to a victory. Four players for My Office each had four hits. Nick Barry had four hits with two doubles, a homerun, and five RBI.
Kimmel's Comeback Criples My Office
     June 12th, 2007 @ 8:45 PM
No one would believe the score of the Kimmel/My Office game would be two to nothing after four innings, but it was. That was too much for My Office and Kimmel to believe. My Office went out in the fifth inning to score four runs. But Kimmel was not about to be outdone. They hit around putting up eleven runs. My Office went back to work scoring five runs to tie it up in the top half of the 6th inning. But in the bottom half Kimmel scored two runs to seal the victory.

The top three batters, Brandon Koe, Michael Bryant, and Nick Barry each had three hits and each had one double. They each had at least two RBI. But it was not enough for the team to win the game.
Zeppoz Shows Off Power
     June 6th, 2007 @ 7:30 PM
Zeppoz started off their half of the inning by scoring 11 runs in the bottom of the first to start a lead they would never lose. My Office battled back through out the game, never giving up, but were unable to make up the difference.

Zeppoz was sitting on an 18 to 2 lead after two innings of play. My Office went to work scoring another 11 runs, but it was not enough to make up the gap. Joe Fairbanks kept hit hot hitting going three for three with a homerun and three RBI.
Walkoff Homerun Ends My Office Comeback Bid
     May 31st, 2007 @ 7:30 PM
Playing against Bomb Squad for the second time this season My Office knew they could win. My Office allowed a huge lead last game get away from them and lose, so today there wasn't going to be that chance for Bomb Squad. It didn't happen that way because the Bomb Squad held on to a lead most of the game.

Bomb Squad did good work by scoring in every inning by one. Each time putting up "crooked numbers". But while Bomb Squad is putting up runs, My Office is getting shut down. Defensively we held our own and that is why Bomb Squad never got a huge lead. We would stop them quickly before a lot of runs were on the board. The most Bomb Squad scored in any inning was three. One such play was Michael Bryant diving to his right. While on the ground, on his back he made a toss to second base for the out.

My Office had one chance to do something. The sticks came alive. My Office hit the ball well enough to make up the run deficit and had one to spare. That did not sit well with Bomb Squads strong part of the order coming up. The first two batters hit homeruns, and won the game with no outs being recorded.
My Office is Back in the Win Column
     May 29th, 2007 @ 8:45 PM
My Office came out flat spending the first three innings to get through the line up scoring no runs. But on the defense side of the ball we were able to keep Gropps from getting a big lead. Gropps has a one run lead until Bill Cole hit a two run homerun. Then My Office did not look back. Today the bottom half of the line up did their job. They were 13 of 20 with five doubles. Ryan Broyles and Dave Meddish both were three for four with a couble and seven RBI between the two.

Michael Bryant was four for five with three doubls and a homerun for an out. He also had caught a hard line drive for an out late in the game to help stop Gropps from mounting a come back.
Palouse Multiple Services Hits Consistently
     May 24th, 2007 @ 7:30 PM
My Office trying to come back from scoring only one run last game was trying to break out in this game. That break out happened in the third inning when they scored 14 runs. But that was not enough to keep pace with PMS who was scoring five runs almost every inning. Each inning PMS has two men left on base showing their hitting output was strong.

Five player for My Office had at least three hit in the game. Joe Fairbanks went four for four and hit for the cycle. He had four RBI during this run.
Palouse Tavern Dominates
     May 24th, 2007 @ 6:15 PM
In a game where each team only had nine men playing, Palouse Tavern came out on top. Palouse Tavern jumped out to a quick five run lead and never looked back. My Office could not get their bats awake. With only four hits spread out among four innings of softball, there was no way that My Office could even have a chance to surpass Palouse Tavern's five run lead.

Palouse Tavern put the game out of reach by the third inning when they scored 12 runs to go with the eight runs scored in the first two innings. My Office could not answer back. My Office finally did score one run on a solo homerun, this was not a good game for My Office. Unlike last season when My Office and Palouse Tavern battled back and forth, this game was anything but an even match.
Strong Start Fizzles
     May 17th, 2007 @ 6:15 PM
After the first inning My Office only allowed two runs to come across the plate in the next four innings. The only problem was allowing seven runs to score in the sixth inning which did them in. After taking a lead into the bottom of the sixth Tubbs went to work scoring seven runs. My Office only had two scoreless innings in the first six innings thanks to the bat of Nick Barry and Scotty Anderson.

Many of the other members on My Office also posted good days at the plate, but we were not able to string them all together. Finally in the seventh inning, My Office had the bases loaded with a chance to get back into the game, but they also had two outs. The last batter hit to an infielder who made the easy play, knocking My Office to a two and two start in the regular season.
The Sun Set Early
     May 15th, 2007 @ 6:15 PM
Unlike last week where we hit the ball well and beat the other teams, today we did hit the ball well, but the other team hit it even better than us. They had two grand-slams. Nick Barry had three homeruns tonight leading My Office. The hot hitting continued overall for the team, scoring 17 runs in 7 innings.

Nate Villabol made an outstanding play in right-center coming in hard and fast on a liner to the outfield. With a man on firstbase, no one on the field thought Nate would come up with it. The baserunner was so sure of it dropping that he was already rounding second when Nate made a catch on the ball. He came up off balance and threw a perfect shot to first base for the double play. But that was not enough. Bomb Squad went on to win the game by one run.
Incredible Defense
     May 10th, 2007 @ 6:15 PM
The story in todays game was defense. Not to say that Phil Gruen going 3 for 3 with a double and two homeruns and 5 RBI did hurt. Scotty Anderson added to the offense with three hits, two of which were doubles.

But once again the story was defense. Playing against a tough Chipman-Taylor/Gormen's Plumbing/Kimmel Athletics team, My Office had to have its A-Game going. Brandon Koe had a defensive gem making a sliding catch at left-center. But what was more amazing was the three double-plays turned by My Office. Including one double-play that was a mere inches from being a triple-play. Right-fielder Phil Gruen was part of one double-play. He caught a fly-ball. It was dropped on the transfer and he threw it in time for a tag to be placed by the infield.

My Office went on to win by six runs.
Starting Off on the Right Foot
     May 8th, 2007 @ 6:15 PM
Reloaded with a lot of new players this 2007 My Office team is looking to have a great season. Our first challenge was against PSPT, a team that has been in the league for a lot of years and always fields a good team. The game was unusual with eight walks being issued to My Office.

My Office jumped out to a quick 6-2 lead after the first inning and never looked back. Many of the My Office players were getting solid contact and showing will on the plate. Solid defense was played by those on the field, except for a couple silly errors in the 4th inning which allowed a couple PSPT runs.

Two new players for My Office lead the way at the plate. Bill Cole went 4 for 4 with a homerun and 6 RBI. Nate Villabol added in three hits of his own with a double and four RBI.
