- Paint Pasture Farms 23 - Hurricane 10
- Buzzards 19 - RTS 19
This is the 36th Year For Munster Leisure Lobball League
Week # 8
Week # 8 saw the pretenders disappear, and the cream rise to the top. With only four weeks left to go before playoffs, Slivers drew even with ENH for first overall, however they have one game in hand which could be a deciding factor later in the year. Only a 1/2 game behind them is the surprising Scrubbees who have seemingly come out of nowhere to lay claim to their first overall regular season title in years. Not to be outdone is In-Dex only 1 game behind and RTS only 1.5 games behind but with a ton of extra runs scored. With 5 teams still in the hunt for the bye, and all teams playing each other down the stretch, it still remains to be seen who will capture the regular season trophy.
Falling quickly in the standings this week was the Hurricanes, losing both ends of a double header. This was the Hurricanes third straight loss along with Paint Pasture Farms and SouthPaw. As well this week congrats to Danby's and new team captain Joey with their first win of the year. After hi-jacking the team leadership from Tom a week ago, Joey with his militant strategy for baserunning appears to have Danby's headed in the right direction. Don't look now but the Buzzards have won 2 and tied 1 in their last 4 games.
In week #9, we find the Fisher Tree playing their first double header of the year against two tough opponents Slivers and Scrubbees. This will be a huge test for Fisher as they look to get back on the winning track as they head towards the playoffs.
Game of the Week
In week # 9, the game of the week see's two old Munster rivals playing the early game on Friday night as the Buzzards take on RTS. On paper this shouldn't even be close with RTS scoring 155 runs to the Buzzards 107, however when you break down the numbers closer, the Buzzards have played one less game, Jay Alma has a 2.35 ERA, Dave Murray is batting .745 for the season and Dallas & Donnie Gray have turned 8 double plays. Vegas however has this game as a blowout with RTS favoured by 15 runs, with an over/under score of 32. The smart money is on the Buzzards to continue their winning ways, however Rob & Connor Brydges might have something to say about it, unless they go to the RedBlacks game.
