Bandits came into the week reeling from 4 straight losses looking to right the ship.  Game 1 against the top of the division Iron Pigs the Bandits came out strong batting around in the 1st, plating 6. Knowing the Pigs would never quit the Bandits did it again in the second sending 14 to the plate, scoring 9 more.  The good guys added 2 more in both the 4th and 5th for a total of 19 and get the win. Highlight of the game...every Bandit scored and reached base at least twice

Top Bandits:

Sean Greeley 3-3 1 BB, 3 run 2 RBI
Jeremy Wagner 3-4 3 runs, 1 HR 3 RBI
Steven Shiller 3-4 3 runs

Game 2 against tough Rangers the Bandits jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead and never looked back.  This games was more about the stellar defense of the whole team and the big stick of Ryan Driggers blasting 2 HR.  The bandit plated 4 in the 1st, 2 in the 3rd and 2 in the 6th to ice the game away.  The game had several great plays with Jeremy Wagner making a great diving play and the game ending on an outstanding diving play by Driggers.

Top Bandits:

Ryan Driggers 3-3 2 HR 4 RBI 2 runs
Jeremy Wagner 2-3 2 RBI 1 run

POW: Jeremy Wagner 5-7, 4 runs, 1 HR, 5 RBI and outstanding defense with a diving play and covering a lot of ground on the right side of the OF when we went to a 5 man infield.
