Most Cosmic Player (MCP)
Camille Paglia


Camille Paglia pitched her first cosmic career shutout as the visiting Virgins beat the Pisces 2-0 in one of the better pitching duels of the young season. Paglia kept the Pisces to six hits, all singles, dished up two walks, two strikeouts and relied on some decent defense behind her to close down the usually powerful Pisces hitters.

Not only did Paglia pitch a beautiful game, she knocked in the game-winning RBI in the fifth inning. Isadora Duncan doubled to open the fifth and after Emily Dickinson hit a long ball to deep right which was just snagged by Pisces rightfielder Robert goddard, Paglia bounced a single over the head of Pisces firstbaseman Allen Ginsberg to score Duncan and the only run needed by the Virgins.

Caresse Crosby, the rookie Virgin firstbasewoman went four-for-four spraying four singles into left, center, right and left again. It looks like the Virgins might be climbing out of the hole they appeared to be digging for themselves in April.

Meanwhile, Pisces manager Henry Miller must be scratching his bald head trying to figure out how to re-ignite his offense which after a scorching start have lately been no more than a flickering spark. Miller has juggled around the lineup but that hasn't helped as the Pisces have lost their last three games while scoring a total of 2 runs. On the other hand, Miller's got to be pleased with the pitching performce of his wife, June, who pitched a decent game allowing only 2 runs in her first complete game of the season.
