Week 3 Preview – Cinco de Mayo Edicion

Game of the Week
Leland Vs Emperors – Leland is the league’s only unbeaten team at the moment. The Emperors will be looking to end Leland’s streak. Leland is currently allowing the least runs in the league, 5 runs in 4 games. Both teams are even in scoring runs and are currently 1 run behind The Gold in that category. The Emps will have to stop Dave and Izzy from driving in runs, both lead their team with 5 apiece. Leland will have to contain Caban, currently the league leader in RBIs with 9. This game could be seen on field #3 at Noon.

Other games
Bandits Vs Saints – Bandits picked up their first win last week versus the winless Dbacks and are looking to build off of that win. Saints have been very competitive and should not be looking past this game or they might be surprised by the Bandits.
DiamondBacks Vs Gold – Although winless up to now, the DBacks have been playing solid this season. They seem to be a few hits short of a rally, which would lead to victory. Martin leads the team with hits and will need help from his teammates. The Gold is already in mid-season form. Betances leads his team with 6 RBIs and is looking forward to adding to that total.
Stem Vs Ravens – Ravens at 1-3, have not played to their potential thus far. They have given up the most runs in the league. Stem is coming off a 2 loss week last week and would like to avoid a losing streak.
Emperors Vs DiamondBacks – The DBacks have their work cut out for them with this matchup. Their outfield and overall defense needs to step up and avoid cluttered bases or else, they will be in for a long game.
Leland Vs Royals – This is usually a good matchup between competitive teams. Royals are trailing Leland in the standings and would enjoy nothing more than to beat the league’s best squad.
Gold Vs Saints – Saints are playing well and will faceoff against one of the league’s top hitting teams. The outfield has been exceptional the past two weeks and will need more solid play in order to come out of this game with a win.
Stem Vs Royals – Stem has another tough matchup this week as they face the Royals. Royals are one of the league’s top hitting teams and will be a tough task for Stem to contain. If Stem can put several hits together, they can make a run to a “W”.
Ravens Vs Bandits – Ravens are expecting to fly high this week and Los Bandidos are standing in their way. Nothing better for the Bandits to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, with a win and a brew! I’m sure the Ravens won’t mind celebrating the day with the Bandits, as long as they have a victory after .
See you on the Blvd!
