More on the Season

The Cats won a superb game on Sunday against the Reno Aces and went off to Omaha for the PCL series against the Atlantic Division title holders - the Omaha Stormchasers.   As I commented in an earlier post - Omaha swept us in the only series we played against them this season.  This is a five game playoff so every game counts.   In the first game we kept it close in score until Omaha picked up a run in the seventh.  But they outhit us 9-3.  Godfrey had one strikeout to Mendoza's 8 but the score looked close.

Last night we came out booming with three runs in the first with a Cardenas home run.  They added 1 each in the first and second and then 5 in the third.  And that was about it.  We added 1 more run in the sixth - but they added 2 in the sixth and 3 each in the seventh and eighth.  They collected 18 hits to our 9.

What that means is we come back to Raley field needing to do what we did last weekend with Reno - win every game.  Total attendance for both games was a bit over 8000 - I guess it is time to break out the thundersticks.
