LEGENDARY WINS ON LEAKY GIRL POWER BULLPEN
Legendary spotted Girl Power an early lead before unleashing the power in a 7-4 comeback win. This game had a combined six HR’s as Andre The Giant once again gave his team a lead late with a big HR.
Shawn Michaels led off the game with as HR of Alexa Bliss. Girl Power came back to take a 2-1 lead after Sarah Logan slugged her fourth HR of the season. Charlotte Flair’s sacrifice fly gave Girl Power a 3-1 lead after 3 innings.
In the bottom of the 5th inning there was another decision which Paige will surely get questioned about. The Rock walked Naomi and Sasha Banks leading off the inning. Next up was leadoff batter Mandy Rose. Would Paige have her sacrifice the runners over to second and third or let her swing away. Paige let Mandy swing away and she hit into a double play killing the inning.
Meanwhile Bliss took complete control of this game holding Legendary scoreless for the next 4 innings. In the top of the 6th Bliss ran into trouble. After walking Andre the Giant, Hacksaw Jim Duggan hit a single. Next up was Triple H who blasted a three run HR to give Legendary a 4-3 lead. In the bottom of the inning Charlotte tied the game up with a solo HR. This team never gives up.
Bliss was removed after 7 innings and Zelina Vega was brought in to pitch the top of the eight inning. Andre hit his league leading 10th HR to give Legendary a 5-4 lead. Three batters later Steve Austin hit a 2 run HR to extend the lead to 7-4. Girl Power did get the first two men on base in the bottom of the ninth off “The Perfect Closer” Curt Henning but pinch hitter Nikki Bella grounded into a double play and Naomi struck out to end the game.
Paige after the game was short and testy. “Yeah why did I not put the bunt on. The Rock was wild and thought he would groove a pitch to Mandy which he did and she hit it hard. Shit happens. Vega is good. But that is a tough part of their lineup to pitch to. Andre has been killing every team all year long.” When asked about the offense. “We get hits and men on base but at times we can’t string enough hits together.” When asked about always changing the lineup, “That is the first smart thing that was said to me all season long. No seriously. Maybe I need to keep one lineup for a few games.”
Meanwhile Michael Hayes still in awe of Andre. “Wow. He never ceases to amaze me.”
Tomorrow it will be Ric Flair vs Lana in yet another must win game for Girl Power.
