Milwaukee County Parks have confirmed that this year's season will conclude with a playoff format. The nature of that format has yet to be determined, so stay posted for updates.
Milwaukee County's finest squared off Saturday at Zirkel Field in McCarty Park. The resulting split was predictable, but the games were not. The Nationals exploded for 15 hits in game 1, running their winning streak to 7 in a 14-4 mercy rule thumping of the previously undefeated Cubs. Jake Paige and James Herkowski led the way with three hits and Chris Marks added a three-run homer as the local nine put together their finest performance of the year to date. Game two afforded no such result. The Cubs jumped on the squad for three in the first and ten in the second en route to a 16-0 drubbing. The early deficit proved too much for the team's otherwise potent offense and the squad suffered its first mercy rule loss in history. The Nationals stand alone in second place, but face a stiff challenge this weekend. The third place White Sox hope to climb the ladder when the two squads square off on Sunday night at Kuenn Field in Rainbow Park.
The Nationals put together their finest performance of the season Sunday night, sweeping a pesky Cats squad by scores of 5-0 and 13-1. While the offense was not nearly as plentiful as in recent weeks, the team's pitching and defense made up for it. Jim Dettman held McGuire's hitless for 5 innings in game one before settling for a 3 hit shutout. When runners did reach base in the 5th and 7th innings, the team quickly eliminated the threats with double plays. On offense, a patient plate approach made the difference. Alex Franson set the tone with 3 walks and a single while James Herkowski added two walks and a single. Overall the team drew 10 free passes, three of which scored. Jake Koutnik set a team season record with his 6th triple, but was stranded during a botched rally. Game two was decided early. After starting pitcher Nick Kibler was dinged for one run on three hits, the offense woke and performed as it had in the previous weeks' doubleheader sweeps. Highlights of the team's seven run first inning included a RBI double by James Herkowski and a two run triple by Jake Paige. The mercy rule was applied after 5 innings.
