Post by jacktoast » Mon May 07, 2018 5:35 pm

Montreal is only 8-16 on the road but at home they have been 13-10 and are 3-5 for the season against the Atlanta Hammers. In the two games played in the series Montreal has batted.297 as a team with three homeruns and their pitching staff has a .250 ERA and has held the Hammer to a paltry .212 team batting average (14 for 66) and just five runs.

Jerry Rooney went 7.1 innings in the first game before giving way to winning pitcher Rosario Molina for the final two innings.

Molina was the beneficiary of a three run bottom of the eight. that provided the margin of victory.

In game two Luis Minnehan finished what he started, allowing just one run on four hits, did not walk a batter and recorded three strikeouts.

Montreal scored two in the first inning on Frank Bright's (five RBIs in the series) two run single and five in the 3rd inning as the IceBerg built an insurmountable 7-0 lead.
