Go figure. In the year that the Spirit break the crazy hex of Campanelli Stadium, going 7-2 in Brockton, the Rox go 4-0 at Fraser Field. Thus, in a year when the Spirit have been magnificent and the Rox have been pitiful, the season series ends up 7-6.
And people wonder why I get more nervous when the Spirit play against the Rox than anyone else - no matter what the records are. What is it about those ugly brown and teal uniforms that casts a spell on the Spirit?
Tonight's victim was Dennis Robinson, who got smacked around for six runs in the Spirit's 8-1 loss. Rolando Viera improved to 9-5, giving up one run on six innings to secure the win.
John Allen homered for the fourth time this season. 2 out of his 4 homers have come against North Shore.
The good news?
Barring a ridiculous run into postseason contention, we won't see the Rox again this season.
Bring on the Grays!
