Here's to a Donkey Kong run that I can rest on for a while!

The early stages of this run were honestly not great- the Mario match was slightly faster than my average 5-inning fielding-focused games, but this was largely because my batting goals were nearly all duds, DK Kong Home Run excepted. Then the Yoshi match had a 2nd try Diddy strike out Baby Mario that mandated an underwhelming 5-inning game redeemed only by the DK 2 Home Runs I managed to belt.

And then it all turned around. The Toads blessed my Wall Ball, meaning I only had to play it once- and I nailed the victory by dodging an ominous first-wall. The Peach, while 2 innings, was pretty quick and accomplished a few necessary goals. Wario's match was a slaughter and locked in 2 of my then-remaining 4 goals, leaving only Goomba 2 Steals and Koopa 3 Hits going into Bowser.

Taking goals into Bowser, other than the ones you are required to, is for chumps. I was a double chump on the best pace I've ever had for a DK run by FAR. Could I clutch things out and get the two Goomba steals and three Koopa hits in an otherwise fast Bowser match?

You bet I goddamn did. And it could have been a first-inning Mercy if I hadn't let my nerves goof up an awkward baserunning situation. Still, this was a solid Bowser and I'm far from upset about it. This run can be beaten, but whoever beats it will have to get lucky AND play very very well.

I return to the Wario Greats next...
