With last night's 8-1 loss at home to New Bedford, Vermont needs a win tonight to get back to .500 before two days off to start next week.
But so does Holyoke.
Both teams are 8-9 and 4.5 games out of 1st place in the Western Division. The Blue Sox are 6-4 in their last 10 outings while Vermont is still 5-5. Both teams are off tomorrow.
Vermont was 0-1 in stolen base attempts last night (rare!) and has now gone three games (non-consecutive) without a stolen base.
Holyoke's best hitter is third baseman Paul McConkey, who is second in the league by average at .431 and tied for first in doubles with 8.
Vermont's Alex Haines still leads the league from the mound with an ERA of .48. Holyoke's Duncan is 3rd at 1.25 and Speer is 5th at 2.46.
Vermont, proudly, has the second-best average attendance in the league with 1,415 and had over 1,100 fans in attendance last night.
Speaking of last night, Holyoke lost at home, too: 8-7 to North Adams.
See you at the park!
