Bada Bings’ Bats Too Much for Pew’s Your Daddy

Microsoft’s search engine might be a distant second to Google, but the company has got softball down.
The software giant’s Bada Bings (4-0) came out firing Thursday night and never looked back, cruising to a 20-11 victory over Pew’s Your Daddy (0-2) in Congressional Softball League action at Monument Field No. 4.
“We repeatedly failed in the field at catching and throwing the ball,” Pew captain Aaron Smith said.
Microsoft started strong, ripping off eight runs in the first three innings and taking a commanding seven-run lead into the fourth. The Daddies didn’t go down quietly, though, responding with some impressive hitting of their own — Ivan Sciupac, Richard Auxier and Mike “Bones” Bolinder all knocked in homers in the top of the fifth.
“Our defense played really well, except the one inning when we had a hiccup,” Bada Bings captain Chris Winnyk said. “The defense is really starting to gel as people get to know each other.”
Pew’s rally would ultimately fall short, however, as solid fielding from Microsoft’s improving defense kept the underdogs at bay in the late innings. The loss came as no surprise to the Daddies, who have historically struggled against the Bada Bings.
“They usually beat the s— out of us,” Smith said.
The win kept Microsoft undefeated and at the top of the league rankings. Pew remains winless and hopes to end its cold streak next Thursday against Team AFP.
