The Plano Knights took multiple lumps in an 11-0 thumping at the hands of the Expos on Tuesday evening at Carpenter Field. The Expos played Eddie Haskell to the Knights' proverbial Beaver, and Ward was definitely worried about "The Beaver". The Knights continued to struggle offensively, managing only five hits in the ball game, and recording their third shutout in the last four games. The defense was even worse, allowing six unearned runs, while committing seven fielding errors. Starting pitcher Stacy "The Grill Master" Scott was the victim of his defense's abuse, and somehow worked a complete game on the mound without ending his own life or the life of one of his team mates. Scott survived two infield errors in the top of the first inning and got two pop ups and a strikeout to post a scoreless half. Tim "Braveheart" Wallace reached on a strikeout, wild pitch with one out in the bottom of the inning, but his mates were unable to move him into scoring position. Two fielding errors in the top of the Expo second gifted the visitors five unearned, and seven total runs in the inning. Rodger "The Poet" Battani led off the Knights second with a single to left field, but was erased, when Chris "Elvis" Taylor grounded into a 4-6-3 double play. Tim Trout grounded out to end the Knights turn, and the Expos plated two more runs in the top of the third, stretching the margin to 9-0. Scott took matters into his own hands, singling to lead off the home half. The crafty mound general scampered to second base, when Richard "Trip" Somers singled one out later. Wallace threatened to get the Knights into the scoring column, with a drive to left field, but a nice running catch by the fielder denied the Blue & Orange. Michael "Deuce" Kubik, who celebrated his birthday this evening, grounded out to the shortstop to end the rally, and the Knights still trailed by nine runs. Scott worked around a fielding error in the Expo fourth, to post a scoreless inning. The Knights fourth started promisingly, when Wes "The Gambler" Willaert led off with a single through the middle of the infield. Battani lined out sharply to the perfectly placed left fielder, when he made a snow cone stab on the drive, to record the first out of the inning. A strikeout and a come-backer to the mound left "The Gambler" stranded, and the Expos increased the margin, with two more in the top of the fifth. The Knights took their last at bat needing two runs to avoid the ten run mercy rule. Scott legged out an infield single leading off the inning, and advanced to second on a wild pitch. Somers liner toward left field one out later, was just low enough to find the glove of the shortstop for the second out. Kubik's fielder's choice ground ball to the second baseman ended the ball game, when the fielder stepped on the bag to record the final out unassisted. The Knights take on the Rebels, Tuesday, October 16, for a 6:15 P.M. start on Carpenter Field #8.
