Dutchies in the Minor League playoffs

Only four Dutchies saw action yesterday.

Hainley Statia and Shawn Zarraga can pack their bags and head to Europe to join team Netherlands in it’s preparation for the upcoming European Cup. The Huntsville Stars fell 6-7 to the Chattanooga Lookouts in the decisive fifth game and is now eliminated. It would have been nice if Huntsville had advanced since 2014 is the final year that Huntsville will be home to the Stars. Next year the team will play in Biloxi, Mississippi.
Hainley Statia and Shawn Zarraga both got a pinch hit at bat and both struck out; Statia swining and Zarraga looking.
The Chattanooga Lookouts will face the Jacksonville Suns in the Southern League championship series. Jacksonville beat Mobile in the fourth game of the divison series by 9-1.

A Full Season
Last night’s game was one soon to forget for the Hagerstown Suns.
The Suns were out hit (12-23) and outscored (7-16) by the Asheville Tourists. Spencer Kieboom caught the game for five innings but still got an at bat in the sixth. Spencer didn’t collect a hit and struck out once in the three at bats that he got.

A Short Season
The Tri-City ValleyCats evened the the championship series of the New York – Penn League. The lineup of the State College Spikes was held in check by Joe Mushgrove (7 innings in which he allowed two hits and fanned eight), Ryan Thompson (1 perfect inning) and Derick Velazquez (1 inning in which he allowed one hit, walked one and struck out one). The Spikes collected three hits in total and Darren Seferina got one of them. In total Darren had four at bats. He was the centerpiece of a 6-4-3 double play. 

With Huntsville ousted, there are only four Dutchies left in the Minor League play offs:
-Darren Seferina
-Sicnarf Loopstok at A Full Season level. Loopstok is playing for the Lake County Captains who will take on the Kane County Cougars in game one of the Midwest League championship series coming Wednesday.
-Spencer Kieboom
-Randolph Oduber, who is playing for the Potomac Nationals of the A Advanced Carolina League.
