The Paradise Pisces were last season's winner of the Universal Cosmic Series but since then the team has been completely overhauled and an awesome squad has been transmuted into something quite a bit less than awesome. It's doubtful the Fish will dominate the Overleague this season. The Bolex Poetics, on the other hand are an up and coming Middleleague team.

The Pisces scored one run in the second inning and that was it. Despite Poetics pitcher Jonas Mekas' lack of control (6 walks), the Pisces could find no way to capitalize on the free bases. The Pisces don't have much speed, but that's the least of their worries. There's no offensive power; they managed nothing more singles in only six hits.

The Poetics may be the best defensive team in all of cosmic baseball. They turned over three artful doubleplays and the outfield of rookie Bryan Frye, Harry Smith and Hollis Frampton represent some of the best arms throwing orbs in the league. And offensively they are showing some magic. Everyone in the lineup got a hit, including pitcher Mekas. His brother Adolfas, batting in the number eight spot smashed a wicked double in the fourth inning. Bruce Baillie is likely to have a career year both standing and squatting at home plate.

It's just pre-season exhibition baseball but some of the writing is already on the outfield walls.
