Lugnuts Notes: Series at Home against the Clinton LumberKings

April 30 thru May 3

  • Lugnuts 2 games, Lumber Kings 2 games
  • One rainout (Tuesday) rescheduled and played as a double header (Thursday).
  • Lugnuts are 14-13 (.519)
  • Third place, 2 games behind the Battle Cats. The division’s spread has reached 4.5 games, largely because Michigan beat up on Fort Wayne during this series.

Our team’s winning about half its games because that’s the way it plays; they have excellent days, then have terrible days. No single player’s playing particularly badly, except for the relief staff, but nearly everyone’s managed to make serious errors of one sort or another.

There’s a good side to this team, too: They fight back when they get behind. Don’t leave early, because the last inning’s often real exciting.

Let’s talk about the position players.

Finally some good weather. The garden’s doing nicely, thank you; tulips and daffodils. Glorious!
