Infamous filmmaker Todd Browning threw out the first pitch in this game between avant-garde filmmakers and freaks of nature. The freaks beat the poetic filmmakers primarily because of a seven single fourth inning. Poetics shortstop Ernie Gehr went 3 for 5 with a double, one run batted in and one run scored. B'Stormer reliver Charles Stratton (aka Tom Thumb) hit a solo homerun in the seventh inning; Stratton also served up three earned runs from the mound. The fielding errors by Dziga Vertov and Harry Smith of the Poetics didn't help matters. All in all the pitching was just fair on both sides. Both of these teams dwell near the basement of the Lowerleague. Both squads need to step up their game.
