Well, at least it played baseball to a football score.
The DSL Yankees beat the DSL Pirates, 32-3, in Boca Chica. The Bombers only — only — led 12-3 after six innings. They scored 20 runs in the seventh and eighth innings — 10 in each frame. The glorious box score can be found here.

The craziest part: This is nothing for the Yankees’ DSL team. They posted a 38-2 win over the Twins’ DSL team in 2019.
Forty runs, 36 hits, five homers, six errors, three stolen bases, five wild pitches, two balks, 33 players used, 215 pitches thrown over three hours and 42 minutes — all culminated into a historic Dominican Summer League game on Wednesday.
Behind a four-hit, seven-RBI effort from Brayan Jimenez, the DSL Yankees clobbered the Twins, 38-2, at the Minnesota Twins Academy in Tierra Alta.
The Yanks are believed to have broken the all-time Minor League record for runs in a game, set by Rookie Advanced Ogden in a 33-10 Pioneer League romp over Helena on Aug. 27, 1995.
