9/3 Minor League Wrap-Up

- Everett ended their season not with a bang but with a whimper, managing only a run in the 1st inning in a 2-1 loss. The Eugene Emeralds finished tied with Salem-Keizer at the top of the NWL West division with a 40-36 record, but the Vocanoes have the tiebreaker, and move on to the NWL Championship.

Everett, meanwhile, sits all alone in the NWL West basement with a 32-44 record. They closed their season with a 6 hit performance from the batters, 4 of which came from sub-Mendoza liner Ryan Royster and from Manny Pimentel.

- West Tenn played Game 1 in the Southern League divisional playoffs, and indeed they got rolled by the Carolina Mudcats, 7-1. Joe Woerman lost a handle on his command in the 2nd, allowed a run, and then put two men on in the 3rd before Cameron Maybin blasted a 3 run backbreaking bomb to make it 4-0.

Johan Limonta doubled home a run in the 5th, but the wind had already been knocked out of West Tenn's sails, and Joe Woerman capped a bleh night by getting taken deep by Scott Cousins with one out in the 6th. In the 8th, against Marwin Vega, three seeing eye singles and an Adam Moore passed ball helped Carolina add two more to make it 7-1 and put the game well out of reach.

To stay alive, West Tenn now faces the task of winning 3 of the next 4 games, with 3 of those games in Carolina. RIIIIIIGHT.
