SATURDAY, MAY 31ST-Pavlov’s Dawgs at Lil Pens
Game 1-Pavlov’s Dawgs 25, Lil Pens 11
The Dawgs were hitting the ball well as Benzing had two and Frankel had a jack, and Puig’s homer couldn’t keep up with them.

The Pens got 3 in the first off of small ball tactics and Doug Bush shut down the Dawgs offense to take the win.

The Pens’ lack of a second pitcher hurt them again as Ryan Bush made them pay with two homers.

Ryan Bush did it all in this one, hitting a solo shot to put them up and then finishing the game out with a no-no.
Pavlov’s Dawgs at Freaky Franchise
Game 1-Pavlov’s Dawgs 14, Freaky Franchise 12

All of the Dawgs had homers and Frankel had two, but they couldn’t keep up with two from Tomkins and four from Bush.
HTML at Pavlov’s Dawgs
Game 1-HTML 10, Pavlov’s Dawgs 0
All of HTML homered in this one as it was never really close, bringing the Dawgs from down from their earlier success.
Game 2-HTML 18, Pavlov’s Dawgs 0
So many homers on one side: Roeder with 3, Turner with 2, and Coyk with 1. But the real story was the fact that Roeder was one batter away from a perfect game but had it broken up.
