Oh no Corp hit a small speed bump but remain 1 game out of 1st place in the Palkowski Division with an 8-4 record (4 game losing streak). We went 1 for 3 against ITDB. The worst of my fears happened when we could not muster up much in the 1st 2 games against the ITDB Starters and the Pen came in and shut us down. Again we lost a game that we might have could have won. The first game of this Series we lost 3-1 in the 10th inning when our Set up man Dan Parker allowed 3 walks (1 was intentional) and 2 hits first being a single by CF Kirk and after striking out the second batter up came LF Daniel with a line drive Double scoring Kirk for the go ahead run and as it turns out winning run. Then after the Double Parker intentionally walked DH Moorthy and immediately caught Daniel stealing 3rd base. 1B Jim Thomas reached on an error by LF Miguel Aguirre (Whom usually picks the ball up well off the bat) sending Moorthy to 3rd. Parker finishes up by walking the next two batters allowing Moorthy to score the second run of the inning and then finally ends the misery by striking out the next batter. In the bottom of the tenth we went down 1-2-3. In the second loss (4-2) Corp's SP Jon Cates did not look right giving up 4 runs on 9 hits and 5 walks in 6.2 innings work. The positives here was Cates struck out 7 batters giving him 32 on the Season keeping him in the league lead in that category. Another positive is that RP Scott O'Farrell threw 2.1 innings of no hit and walks with 2 strike outs keeping his ERA at 0.00. Then it happened the 3rd game we finally got to ITDB Starter for 7 runs and our SP Dave Strong (2-0) threw 8 innings allowing 4 runs ending the 4 game slide. Strong had 10 strike outs giving him a total of 19 over 25 innings of work. Corp made the most of 8 hits driving in 7 runs without the use of a Home Run. Next up is an away 3 game Series against a 5-7 USoB team. USoB is a divisional rival so lets hope we can set them back 3 more games. More to come Thanks for listening. Maine Yank
