Clowns Take Title
Tuesday, November 11th, 2064
Sometimes the winner is the one who got the lucky bounces and the lucky calls, and sometimes the winner is just the one who played better.
It was the latter case in 2064, as the Helsinki Clowns topped the Chitown Hooligans 9-4 tonight at Destruction Yard to win the Solecismic Series. It was the 3rd title in franchise history.
"When you play for championships, you have to play better than the team in the other dugout. We did that in this series, and all year. Now we're the best team in baseball," said Helsinki starting pitcher Dave Banning, who was named series MVP.
The Clowns took the series 4-2. The new titleholders completed the regular season with a first-place finish in the Gindin League Skates Division and a 93-69 record.
Helsinki manager grinned and nodded when asked to comment on Banning's words.
"Dave said it best -- we played better than the other team," he said.
Hometown officials announced they were already planning a "grand celebration" for the winners in the days to come.
