The Vestal Virgins have been struggling again this season. The Paradise Pisces have been sitting atop the Overleague practically since day one. But this game made it look otherwise. The Virgins had defense and a lot of offense going for them and the Pisces looked like they were sound asleep.
Part of the problem was on the Pisces mound as Sigmund Freud pitched three solid innings and then fell apart at the seams. Inquiring minds want to know why Pisces manager Henry Miller kept Freud in the game for so long. Insiders indicate there is a growing tension between Miller and Freud. But that can't explain why in his last three starts Freud has lost almost all control after three or four innings. Of course pitching isn't everything. Two errors by Louis Farrakhan in the seventh inning didn't help matters. The good news is that the Pisces can afford a few slip ups and unless there is a catastrophe, it's likely they will be in the race for the pennant all season long. Lynn Behrendt continues her torrid hitting and she's the odds-on favorite for rookie of the year award. Caresse Crosby also has been sharp offensively and defensively.
The Virgins on the other hand and despite this victory are a team with a full menu of problems. Zelda Fitzgerald pitched a complete game (her first of the season) but the Virgin pitching staff is in the midst of a meltdown. Offensively this is only the third game this season that the Virgins have scored more than six runs. Vita Sackville-West committed her sixth error in six games. So, while it is always delightful to watch the Virgins win a game, it is doubtful that they will be near the top of the hill when the season concludes.
