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....

DEFS WIN!!! 2-0.......

in New Britain this afternoon and take the Divisional playoff over the RockCats three games to one.
Lefty Ari Ronick goes 5.1 IP in his EL debut giving up just 2 hits and two walks and getting 3 Ks. Mitch Lively, Alex Hinshaw and Joe Paterson shut out NB the rest of the way as Ct threw three lefties at the RockCats. JoePat comes up big going 3 IP, giving up just one hit and notching 2 Ks.
CT scored in the fourth as Bobby Felmy singled and then moved to second on a wild pitch. Jackson Williams singled in Bobby for a 1-0 lead. It stayed that way until the 7th inning. Brock Bond (2 or 3) walked and advanced on a Mike McBrdye ( 3 for 4) single. Brett Pill (2 for 4) then knocked in Bond with a single to close out the scoring at 2-0.

Misc fan notes: Ramon Castro in the lineup today as DH after being HBP in last night's game. Akron up next!

Was in Boston doing a card show this weekend and Steamer was a signer. Had a nice chat with him.
Some of his more interesting comments.. paraphrased.

1. About time the Giants sent Norwich some hitters.

2. He's working at an AAU facility in NH and loves it. More $ and home every night.

3. Giants told him they wanted Grimsley in Norwich to develop the young pitchers. Steamer's reply.."Didn'T I develop anyone in the past 6 years?

4. Giants let Alderson go because his mechanics are an arm injury waiting to happen.

5. He said to give everyone his best wishes.

Heard the last inning and a half on the radio coming home.

See you all Tuesday evening.
