The Iron Law of Baseball's Theory of Relativity

Last night the Rivercats played the Las Vegas 51s and played well.   But as you get to the last month of the season you begin to hear about "magic numbers."  Sacramento is currently one game down behind the Fresno Grizzlies.  In order to change that situation we've got to continue to play like we did in July.  Last night we did.  At the same time, so does Fresno.   In other words they cannot play like they did early in the season, where they seemed to ease through games for most of the first two months. Last night, against the Colorado Sky Sox, the Grizzlies looked pretty good,too.  So we stayed in the same relative position.   Travis Buck's home run was great.  But all night we kept checking the score to see where Fresno was.
