Today another overview of Dutch and Netherlands Antillian players in the playoffs of the various minor leagues.
The Potomac Nationals tied the championship series of the Carolina League at one game a piece. At bat, Randolph Oduber had a hell of a game for the Nationals. In five at bats he collected two singels and a double. He scored one run and struck out once. Oduber and Shawn Pleffner were the only players with three basehits, but the impact of Pleffners’ at bats was bigger because he drove in a run and scored twice. The Nationals beat up the Pelicans 12-7.
A Full Season
In the Midwest League, the championship series will start tonight with a “Battle of the Counties” when Lake County (with Sicnarf Loopstok) will take on Kane County. Did you know that Sicnarf is an anagram of Francis?
In the championship series of the Sally League (South Atlantic League), the Hagerstown Suns beat the Asheville Tourists 4-3 to tie the series at one a piece. Catcher Spencer Kieboom went 0 for 4 and struck out twice.
A Short Season
If there were any doubts about who was the strongest team this year in the New York – Penn League, the State College Spikes made clear that they are the best. In game three of the championship series they pulverised the Tri-City Valley Cats with 11 runs to 2. At least one Dutchie will receive a championship ring this year, and that guy is Darren Seferina. Darren had a great season, but in the play offs he struggled a bit. Last night he struck out four times in as many at bats but he also drew a walk.
