Zog: Hounds Cancel The Kenny Show

Looking to secure their playoff destiny, the Hounds headed over to Riverbank Park where we have generally had much success. The quick turf field is conducive to our style of hitting and defense. Ahead of us lay Kenny Show, a team that is also battling to get in the playoffs. As the game was about to start, we realized they only had 8 players so we were eager to start the game and pound the ball.
As the away team, we were hitting first, and we were able to score 5 runs in the top of the first. Margaret took the mound and continued her recent run of dominance. She walked no one and forced their hitters to put the ball in play. Offensively, the standout was Mega in the cleanup spot, going 3 for 4 with 5 RBIs. Dave, George, and Braden also went 3 for 4. Jason hit our team's lone home run in the game, a solo shot.
On defense, we continued our excellent recent form and Kenny Show struggled to score. We shut them out for the first 3 innings and the result of the game was never really in doubt. They tacked on some runs in the later innings but it would not be enough, Final Score: Hounds 15, Kenny Show 7.
At 7 and 2 with only 3 games left, we have to like our playoff chances. Our focus should now be on getting one of the top two seeds and securing a first-round bye in the playoffs. Onward to glory, Hounds...
