Thoughts and pictures of my local minor league baseball team the New York Penn League Connecticut Tigers; a Detriot farm team. We'll still be looking at former Navigators/Defenders players along the way....

FisherCats score in the 9th beat Defs 5-4...

after Connecticut had rallied with a pair of runs to tie it up in the top half of the ninth. Justin Hedrick, the fourth pitcher of the game for Connecticut takes the loss. Connecticut got its's runs on a two run double by Adam Witter in the top of the fourth. In the ninth Connecticut got a single from Olmo Rosario (2 for 4), a pitch hit double by Dayton Buller and a two run single from TI (2 for 5). dave maroul went two for four and had a sac bunt that set the stage for Witter's double knocking in two. On to Portland!

The last 3 losses have been by one run. The division is tightening up, the D's need to win these close ones.

I noticed Richardson had been popping up on bunt attempts a lot. Am I correct in saying the Defenders don't have a batting cage? A few reps might get him back on track. Either that or some conch fritters might do the trick.

I also noticed he squares around early on sac bunt tries. I can't stand watching that with a guy as quick as he is. I guess thats the style these days though. I think we got lucky with a good replacement for Velez in the leadoff spot. Antoan is fun to watch. I also learned he was picked as the SJ Giants season mvp in 2007.
