The Beats, the Season 2006 owners of the best record in the Cosmic Baseball Association jumped off to a quick lead by shutting out their opponents, the Paradise Pisces. Speculation about a "sweep" is already in progress.|
Diane DiPrima, Game MCP
It was a Beat team effort: Bremser, Huncke, and Whalen all had a run batted in. But the star of the show and the game's most cosmic player is the Beat poet Diane DiPrima who pitched a complete game, 3-hit, shutout. It was a superb pitching masterpiece by a highly honored and respected poet.
Vanessa Williams sustained the loss for the Pisces Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes did not do much in his one inning of relief in the eighth except he did give up the third Beat run by offering up a double to Herbert Huncke and a single to Philip Whalen (scoring Joan Haverty who was pinch running for Huncke.)
In the wings are the enthusiasts who advocate the Dharma Beats are the CBA's true flagship team. But the official flagship team is still the Paradise Pisces by virtue of the fact that the Pisces were the first cosmic team created in 1981. Could a Beat sweep of the Pisces in the 2006 championship series bode well for a flagship team adjustment?
Game two tomorrow...On the mound in Dharma: American television/movie entertainer Kelsey Grammer vs. American poet William S. Burroughs...don't miss the game...
