Nine in a row!
And they've been doing it in thrilling fashion, thanks to things like:
- A 17-year old shortstop hitting .400
- A switch-hitting catcher belting home runs from both sides of the plate
- A fireballing closer striking out four batters in one inning
- A leadoff man who also leads the team in virtually every offensive category
- An All-Star pitcher who leads the league and set a new franchise record with almost 100 strikeouts
- A league-high 27 one-run games
School's back in session, and that means the kids need a pick-me-up. I can't think of a better way to hang onto the last days of summer than by bringing the family to see a pennant race that features great baseball and great entertainment. The way this season has been going, you may even be seeing a piece of history. It seems like something incredible happens, both on and off the field, at just about every game!
And who knows? This team just might keep on winning all the way to a championship! Stranger things have happened. Either way, you can be sure of one thing...it'll be a thrilling ride worthy of the team's namesake, and one you don't want to miss!
