Playoffs Hopes Dashed...

CENTURY PARK, GARFIELD, NJ -- Heading into Sunday's doubleheader in Garfield, The Expos were just one game ahead of the Sons of Pitches.  In Game 1, they came out gangbusters but saw an early 12 - 2 lead evaporate,  as they gave up 15 runs in the final 4 innings & only scored 2! 

They had their chance to put The Sons of Pitches away, but due to inconsistencies (story of their season) they flopped losing 17-14. 

For SOP, John K. hit a Grand Salami in the 5th (he led the team with 4 RBIs).  Jesse added a solo homer in the 6th!  Adding to the RBIs for the Sons of Pitches were Kyle (1), Eric (2), John Z.(3) Mark Z (1), Terry (3 & a pulled hamstring), Sweverin (1) and Jeff (1).

Final Score Game 1:
Sons of Pitches - 17
Expos - 14

Game 2 was a real barnburner, and the game was tied at 8 through 5 innings.  Rich Shenton was 3 for 3 with 4 RBIs & a Homer.  Finders fee offered for his #67 Jersey that has mysteriously disappeared!  His brother Rob Shenton ended the game with an RBI single in the bottom of the 7th!   

Final Score Game 2 :
Expos - 9
Sons of Pitches - 8
