Ranger Rap1

The Ger's limped into the playoffs with their season's first double dip loss.  In the opener the Gers had a short live 1st inning lead but trailed by 9 going into the 5th....Gers exploded for 8 and 1 more in the 6th to tie up the score.  The Nuts plated a walk off run in the bottom half to prevail 16-15 in a barn burner.  Great determination but a bit short when the game ended.  Many offensive highlights including HR's from Mendoza and a Slam by the Law. Scott Chaddick had a great day including 4 hits in the opener including a 2B and 3B. 

The second tilt the Ger's caught a red hot Grasshopper squad who exploded for 13 runs in top half of the first.  Once again the Gers showed some grit as they crawled back with crooked numbers of 5, 6, and 3 actually closing to  within 2 runs before the Hoppers had a large rally in the 4th inning to take control.  The Ger's did hit 6 2B's in the game including 3 from Law and 2 from Chuck Up.  Scott Chadwick continued to wield a hot bat with 3 more hits including a 2B and HR.  Rosey had a HR and 5 RBI's.  Just not enough offense for the very offensive Hoppers.

We look forward to the playoffs and a different Ranger team that will come out with full steam ahead!!!
