If you’ve taken The A.V. Club’s advice and started watching Brockmire (and, again, if you didn’t, why not?), then you know this week’s episode of the IFC comedy stands to set up a showdown between comeback kid Jim Brockmire (Hank Azaria) and his primary competition for a shot at the big leagues: A likeable up-and-comer by the name of Raj (Utkarsh Ambudkar).

But thanks to the magic of statistical analysis, Brockmire has an ace up his sleeve, and in his drink: The infamously drunk play-by-play man is most popular with fans of the New Orleans CrawDaddys when he’s, well, drunk. This presents a problem when the team bans alcohol from the broadcast booth, but as seen in the exclusive sneak peek above, Brockmire’s trusty sidekick Charles (Tyrel Jackson Williams) has some creative ways around that ban.

Charles’ creative methods for camouflaging grain alcohol are on display Wednesday, May 9 at 10 p.m. Eastern on IFC.
