The season is nearing its end. In the minors the play offs have started. In general most of the Dutchies did not fare well with their teams yesterday.
Sharlon Schoop went 1 for 3 for the Norfolk Tides in a 5-2 loss vs the Columbus Clippers. Sharlon drove the ball towards
center field for a single. As a second baseman Sharlon was part of an around-the-horn double play.
Shawn Zarraga went 0 for 2 with a strikeout and two runners left on base. He also threw out Lewis Brinson of the Round Rock Express at a base stealing attempt. The OKC Dodgers lost 2-1.
Christopher Garia went 1 for 4 in a 9-7 loss vs the Lancaster JetHawks. The outfielder of the High Desert Mavericks struck out once. Christopher singled in the bottom of the first inning and scored the game opener after
two consecutive singles. The Mavericks scored five runs that inning but were not able to hold it in the end. After a 6-3 lead after the third inning, the JetHawks tied the game in the fourth and took a lead in the bottom of the seventh and never looked back.
A Full Season
