Juan Primo hit a walk-off 2 run double off Curt Henning giving Wonderboy a 5-4 win over Legendary.
The first 6 innings of this game were dominated by the starting pitchers as only Roy Hobbs solo HR in the bottom of the first inning was the only run scored. Chris Jericho for Legendary and Steve Nebraska for Wonderboy were both locked in and rolling.
In the top of the seventh inning, this game got interesting. Hulk Hogan had an RBI single scoring Andre The Giant and Randy Savage’s RBI single scored Hacksaw Jim Duggan to give Legendary their first lead of the game at 2-1. In the top of the eight inning after a Christain single, Andre hit his league-leading 11th HR to give Legendary a 4-1 lead.
Then the game really turned for Legendary. With Jericho cruising, he gave up a leadoff double to Rudy Suarez. He was pulled for Devon Dudley. Devon retired Tanner Boyle but Juan Primo hit a triple scoring Suarez. After walking Bennie The Jet Rodriguez Devon was pulled for the Perfect Closer, Curt Henning. Henning gets Hobbs to hit into an inning-ending double play.
We head to the bottom of the ninth and Henning gave up a leadoff single to Bobby Rayburn followed by a walk to Crash Davis. Jack Elliott hit into a fielders choice sending Rayburn to third. Davis Birch hit a sacrifice fly scoring Rayburn. Then Stan Ross pinch hit for Suarez who walked followed by T Rex Pennebaker pinch-hitting for Boyle who also walked setting the game up for Primo.
Much speculation will be on the pitching changes made by Michael Hayes and the change he didn’t make. We caught up with Hayes after the game. “I thought Jericho was gassed. He never told me he wasn’t gassed. Pitching changes aside. My money bullpen pitchers failed miserably today. That is my concern right now.”
Pop Fisher had this to say, “Big win. We came back against some really good pitching.”
Next up we have pitching for Roddy Piper(1-1) against Rigo Sanchez(1-1).
