Pennant Races Tightening!!!
Joey D. Going Berzerk at the Plate!!!
Spiders, Bitters Tied. 30 Left to Play!!!
The Blues went 4-4 in their last eight games, while Tri-Town went 6-2 and the Arsenals went 5-3, setting up a three team race for the Division One flag. The Blues are showing they are not letting up, however, as they drubbed the Lecheros in their last four game set, outscoring them 40-14, including a 22-2 slaughter in which Lecheros reliever Jess Dobernic (0.00 ERA in 7.2 IP) took a big one for the team, giving up fifteen earned runs in one inning of relief, pushing his ERA to 15.57...Ouch! The Blues batted around twice in the sixth inning of that one. The Blues continue their long road trip, heading over to play four each with the Red Kegs and the B's before returning home to face Stan "The Man" and his Tri-Town gang. The Bitters and Spiders are tied for first in the Division Two pennant race, and those clubs are down to their final thirty games of the season. They lock horns right away with a three game set in Bittertown, while the Sun Kings and Mutuals slug it out for third place, and let me tell you- don't count the Sun Kings out yet...They are all set to play the spoiler role as the season winds down. Blues outstanding star outfielder Joe DiMaggio has enough juice left for a couple of games, and lately he has just been ripping it up, as if to make a clear statement to watch out for him next season. In his last seven games, he's hit .379, with two HR and five RBI, giving him a breakdown to this point of .442/27/89! Ralph Kiner is right behind him with 26 jacks and 75 RBI. Hot stuff, boys!! Need to put some cold ones on ice while we watch things develop! So come on in, the press box is open, and the games are about to roll on!!!
