Mota Out as Speeders Clinch 2020 Berth

(GAME DATE — Sep. 26, 2020) — The Nevada Speeders offered muted celebration as they clinched a wild card playoff berth for the 2020 postseason, as they learned that their #1 ace in the rotation, Al Mota, will miss the rest of the season with a herniated disc.

Motormouth Mota, a 3-time all-star, who twice came close in Sandy Koufax Award voting, suffered the injury in the 8th inning of a gem of a game against division rivals Arizona. Despite the injury, Mota picked up the win, and player of the game honors, after throwing 7.2 innings while allowing just 4 runs on 3 hits and 4 walks, while whiffing 8 batters.

Cowboys Take First Division Title

(GAME DATE — Sep. 26, 2020) — The Arizona Cowboys were already guaranteed a playoff spot a week ago, but now they can claim their first division title as they have cemented their seat atop the Metro League West division for the 2020 season.

Currently 89-70, they are now 4 games ahead of the Nevada Speeders with just 3 games left to play — the Speeders are firmly in the wild card, but are now mathematically unable to unseat Arizona. Continue reading “Cowboys Take First Division Title”

Will We See Lengthy Bull Cup Drought End in 2020?

(GAME DATE — Sept. 19, 2020) — Several probable and confirmed pennant race teams this year have lengthy Bull Cup droughts, or have never won at all, meaning this year could see a record set when it’s all over.

Most prominent are the LL East division title winners, the Boston Brawlers, who have never won a Bull Cup in the 29 years since the trophy has been awarded. They came close just once, in the inaugural year, losing to the ten Chicago Knights in 1991, the first year the cup was contested.

Winnipeg Gophers Take Home Calf Cup

(GAME DATE — Sep. 18, 2020) — The A-level Calf League playoffs wrapped up at the beginning of the month and the Winnipeg Gophers (Seattle Salts) were victorious, taking out the Boston-affiliated Lexington Moonshiners in a 2-0 series sweep.

Despite Winnipeg winning the series, it was Lexington’s right fielder, Harvey Marleau, who was named series MVP. Marleau went 3-for-8 with a Game 2 home run that would be Lexington’s only run in that game. He led the team in RBIs for the series. Continue reading “Winnipeg Gophers Take Home Calf Cup”

Spokane North Stars Take Home Heifer Cup

(GAME DATE – Sep. 19, 2020) — The AA-level Heifer League playoffs wrapped up recently, and the Minneapolis Ravens’ farm club, the Spokane North Stars, took home the Heifer Cup in a 3-game sweep of the best-of-five finals against the Madison Cyclones, the Boston Brawler’s affiliate.

Right fielder Takaaki Takahashi put in a huge performance in the finals, hitting .364 with 4 home runs and 6 RBIs against the Cyclones, earning the series MVP nod. Continue reading “Spokane North Stars Take Home Heifer Cup”

Defending Champs, Admirals, Clinch Division Again

(GAME DATE — Sep. 19, 2020) — The defending Bull Cup champions, the St. Petersburg Admirals, have clinched their third straight division title since moving into the East division of the Metro League (formerly the American Eagle League), securing a fifth straight playoff appearance.

With a 90-62 record and 10 games left to play, their nearest division rival, the Washington Freedom, can no longer catch them as they are 10½ games back. Continue reading “Defending Champs, Admirals, Clinch Division Again”
