Game Notes: The nightcap would not be so kind. After an output for the ages, the bats took a nap. Starting hurler Marc Grenon(0-2) kept the Bad Boys in it. Grenon had 6 strike outs in 4 1/3. In two starts at Heritage Field this year Grenon has struck out 12 in 9 1/3 innings. He was lifted in the 5th down only 2-0, but he had worked himself into a bases loaded jam. With the slugging Black Sox catcher making his way to the batter's box, the move was made to the Bad Boy's stopper, Brian Airey(0-2). Airey would strike out the Black Sox bopper, but it was sandwitched between a run scoring passed ball and an RBI single leaving the Orange Hats with a 4 run deficit. Your Bad Boys would not quit though. After Rhoads walked, Acree singled. They were plated by a single from Hoke and a sacrifice fly from Carlson. Airey then shut down the Black Sox, giving the Bad Boys a chance in the 7th still down only two. Breedlove reached on a walk, but it would seem all hope was lost as Aukland struck out on a ball in the dirt with two down. He looked down in disappointment, but decided to run anyway. The catcher threw the ball away to score the Muscle and give the Bad Boys new life down one. Moments later, Aukland was off with the pitch. Thomas laced a single to right center scoring the speedy Aukland. Yes, he scored from first on a single. As the tardy throw went home, Travis alertly ended up in scoring position at second. Rhoads then scorched a groundball that found its way directly into the third baseman's glove who threw across for the third out. In the bottom of the seventh, Hoke would erase a leadoff hit by rifling him out attempting to steal. Then a hit batter followed by a fielders' choice and the Bad Boys had 2 outs with a runner on first. A single and a dying quail over second baseman Russell Breedlove ended it. For the fourth time this year the Bad Boys lose in the final at bat. The Bad Boys record now stands at 1-8 and they're still in the cellar. Cascades this Wednesday night in Auburn. It's being billed as the battle for eighth place. The team now boasts a batting average over .300, and 8 players are hitting .280 or better, including four over .390.
