Cosmic Game: Beats Beat Virgins, 6-1
June 14, 2004
Philip Whalen- Link to Game Report
The boys of the Beat Generation have a reputation for not being very considerate of their women folk. Literary history intruded on the cosmic baseball field during this game as the Dharma Beats pretty well disrespected the Vestal Virgins. In a game that saw Virgin secondbasewoman Hilary Clinton commit three errors (leading to three unearned runs), the Beats had a field day. Beat starter David Kammerer pitched eight strong innings, giving up one run and serving up ten strikeouts. Virgin pitcher Sylvia Plath didn't make it through four innings as she continues to struggle to get on track this season. Philip Whalen shined at the plate going 4 for 5 with two doubles and three runs batted in.

Reagan Beats Pisces
June 5, 2004
Link to Game Report
Coincidentally, while the corporeal Ronald Reagan passed on, Ronald Reagan the cosmic baseball player was pitching in LaFayette Park. And he earned his sixth win of the season to even up his won-loss record (6-6). Reagan pitched seven innings and yielded just one run as the Washington Presidents beat the Pisces, 3-1. Reagan came to bat twice. He struck out in the second inning and earned an RBI in the fifth inning when he hit into a 4-6 force out with Gerald Ford on third base and Martin Van Buren on first base (thanks to Spike Lee's fielding error.)






Cosmic Game: Pisces @ Warriors
May 31, 2004
Link to Game Report
This was a pitching duel, all the way until the top of the tenth inning when Pisces rightfielder and notorious organized crime mobster Bugsy Siegel smacked a William Calley fastball into the left field seats. One run would have been sufficient to win the game, as it turns out. However, three other Fish were perched on the bases when Siegel hit his homerun. It was a glorious grandslam and it gave the Pisces the win over the Warriors.

Cosmic Game: Poetics @ B'Stormers
May 24, 2004
Link to Game Report
Infamous filmmaker Todd Browning threw out the first pitch in this game between avant-garde filmmakers and freaks of nature. The freaks beat the poetic filmmakers primarily because of a seven single fourth inning. Poetics shortstop Ernie Gehr went 3 for 5 with a double, one run batted in and one run scored. B'Stormers reliever Charles Stratton (aka Tom Thumb) hit a solo homerun in the seventh inning; Stratton also served up three earned runs from the mound. The fielding errors by Dziga Vertov and Harry Smith of the Poetics didn't help matters. All in all the pitching was just fair on both sides. Both of these teams dwell near the basement of the Lowerleague. Both squads need to step up their game.
