Spirit win 4-1!
Because of the Spirit-Brockton pseudorivalry, everything feels a tad bigger, but let's not lose sight of the fact that Brockton is a BAD TEAM. Worse than the Grays, even. We should win 3 out of 4 in this series - no question.
Tonight was a great bounceback after yesterday's trouncing at Campanelli. Joey Siak and Mike McTamney battled it out in a tremendous pitchers duel, keeping the score 1-1 until the 7th inning when Josue "Of All People" Lopez ripped a 2-run homer to give the Spirit a 3-1 lead. They added an insurance run in the top of the 9th and Derek Drage closed out the Rox in the bottom half to earn the save.
After giving up a leadoff HR to Joe Hough, Siak retired the next 13 men consecutively. An excellent performance all around.
The scene shifts to Fraser tomorrow night - be there or be square.
