Matchups of Week 13
Dirt Dawgs vs. Bulldogs
This is an interesting matchup as the Dawgs and Dogs are tied for 2nd place at 18-6.  Because of tiebreakers, it is unlikely for either team to fall to 4th so this is most likely a preview of a possible semi-final matchup on August 10th.  So how does Pat Dunn and Mike Fein, the managers for the Dawgs and Dogs, respectively, approach this series Sunday?  Do you play to win and try to get home field advantage in the semis?  Or do you not tip your hand at all for a likely playoff series?  It'll be interesting to see how this one plays out Sunday.

Gottfried did it all for the Tigers on Sunday.  In game one, he threw a complete game 5-hitter against the Dirt Dawgs in a 6-3 win and also went 3-for-3 at the plate with 2 runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base.  In game two, Gottfried batted leadoff and played 2nd base, going 2-for-2 with 2 runs scored, an RBI, a walk and a stolen base, leading the Tigers to a 7-2 win.  Gottfried also made every play hit his way at 2nd to cap off a great all-around day at Eastern University.

Pitcher(s) of the Week
