Zog: Hounds Thrash the Sliders

For our penultimate game of the regular season, it was over to Colonel Charles Young Field in Harlem to take on the Sliders. We came into this game sitting pretty at 3 and 1, knowing that 4 wins would probably be enough to get us in the playoffs. It was a perfect night for a ballgame, and after a brief delay, it was time to play ball.

Juiena got the nod at starting pitcher looking to build on the success of her previous outing. She pitched magnificently, walking no one and allowing only 2 runs all game. Behind her, our defense really stepped up and looked like a well-oiled machine.

Our offense was also outstanding on the night. Everyone had a part to play, but the star of the show was Jason T. who hit 3 home runs, all well-hit shots. He and George were a strong 1-2 combo, going a combined 7 for 8 with 4 home runs and 11 RBIs. Mega went 2 for 3 with an opposite field solo home run. Push and Cindy combined to go 5 for 5 with 4 runs scored and 4 RBIs. Alan had a great game too going 3 for 3 with 2 RBIs. All in all, it was a great effort by everyone and our opponents seemed relieved when the game was finally over. Final Score: Hounds 21, Sliders 2.

With 4 wins sewn up, we can go into our final regular season game nice and relaxed. Let's keep the pedal down and continue this momentum all the way to the playoffs.
