South Oakland Ducks of the North Side (3-1)
Bauerstown Grizzlies (3-0)
The Ducks can take sole possession of first place with a win at home tonight against the undefeated Grizzlies.
Bauerstown picked up a catcher/pitcher from Pitt Johnstown who’s hitting .800, throws 95 mph, runs a 5.8, 60 yard dash, and hits 500 foot home runs. I hear he also has a solid low post game.
The Grizzlies have some solid guys and are young. They swept the Bandidos over the weekend, and beat the Devils to open the season. They are scoring 8 runs a game. Last season, they eliminated us from the playoffs in the losers bracket final, after our exhausting, ten-inning win against the Devils. Historically, we play these guys close, including a tie a couple years ago. In that game Lonnie threw out the go-ahead run at the plate in the top of the seventh. This game will probably also be close.
A win tonight will go a long way towards keeping us out of the losers bracket in this year’s playoffs. This will be another good test for us. I like our chances at home.
