Shocker: Varks Lose!
UPDATE: The eighth-seeded Varks upset the number one-seeded Backwards K in the first game of the playoffs and then lost a 10-9 heartbreaker to the Cult of the Splendid Splinters. A second loss to Joe's Bar ended the season.
The Varks' Player Manager, who declined to be publicly identified, said he was proud of his players, especially his left-fielder Mike P. who left early from third base against the Splinters on a fly-out to left and took the team out of a big inning. He didn't make the same mistake last night at the bars.
"Though he was tagged out at home by his wife," said his coach, "it was a close play and showed terrific hustle."
