South Oakland returns from the bye week to face the Bombers at home tonight.

The Ducks (5-2) have won two straight, and need a win to keep pace with the WOLFPACK! (6-2)

Unexpectedly, the Bombers (3-3) have lost two straight. Allegheny  dropped a 3-2 heartbreaker to the seventh place Ted Kennedy’s Sunday night in Brookline and lost 5-2 to the ColonialsMatadors, Sharks, WOLFPACK! on Saturday. The Wolfpack are so intense! is so intense? Whatever. WOLFPACK!!!

I still think the Bombers are the team to beat and will be a tough out come playoff time. And that Joe Graff is a beast. It’s also likely Allegheny didn’t throw their best pitcher over the weekend so we will probably face him tonight.


Below are the standings as of May 19th. A lot has happened since we last played. So much rain.

I’m surprised the Monsters are under .500. they’ve gone 2-6 after starting 3-0, and had some trouble with the Titans. Their season is almost half over.

The Warriors are struggling to score runs, but have between 4 and 7 games at hand over several teams.

The Lioins and Bombers run differential.

You can get a weekend where you have three games and some key guys missing and  drop a few. In such a relatively short season, you just hope it doesn’t mean the difference between making the playoffs and not.

At 5-2 we’re in good shape.

A win puts us back in first place.

We’ve got our attorney on the hill tonight.


 Bad News for the Bombers.
