2050 Pickles Dominate on Future Night

The year was 2050 and the 23 time WCL Portland Pickles were back taking on their long time rivals the Corvallis Knights. These two teams have had many great games in the past but tonight was the Pickles night. In a game full of wacky futuristic rules, the Portland Pickles eventually won the 7 inning game by a score of 11-3. Despite Corvallis having the advantage with the power balls, the Pickles were able to turn a conventional 6-4-5 double play, with the batter having to run to third base after putting the ball in play. Daniel Naughton got the win on the mound, while the combo of Alex Lambeau and Gabe Skoro nailed down the win in the 7th. Johnathan Kelly, despite the crowd chanting for him to utilize the new bunt rule, unloaded on a ball and sent it back to 2019 to lead the Pickles on offense. The Pickles will return to the year 2019 tomorrow night as they begin a WCL series against the Yakima Valley Pippins, first pitch at 7:05
