Rebels couldn't match Storms' Fury

It was a high scoring game last night with the Storm coming out on top 24 to 17 over the Rebels and two well picked CN Express players. The Storm built up an impressive 20 to 7 lead over the Rebels but they did not give up and with the power of 3 home runs, which includes one by each of the CN Express players managed to get themselves right back in the game. Goes to show you that no lead is safe in this league especially against a good hitting team like the Rebels.

Devils double up Storm 10 to 5

It wasn't a pretty display of hitting by the Storm last night as they managed only a few hits here and there. Al's 3 run home run in the sixth was the only hit that made this game respectable. It was the first game in over seven years that the Storm played with less than nine Storm players in a game. The Storm called up Junior from the Falcons and Wayne from Greenthumb to help out, as we had 8 signouts for this game. Both played well and the Storm team thanks them for coming out. Payback against the Devils will take place on August 9th.

Storm edges out Falcons 16 - 12

A nine run 3rd for the Storm was the difference in this game. It was a well played game on both sides with very few errors. Matt had a three run home run to cap a very good third inning. The Falcons had 4 three run innings but just couldn't get enough runs back in the end, and came up short. Make the final Storm 16 and Falcons 12. The season series is now in the Storms favor with a 2 to 1 advantage. Circle Aug 30th. on your calendar as it is the next time these two teams play, should be a good one.

Storm beat Greenthumb 14 to 6

With a few timely home runs the Storm powered past a depleted Greenthumb team. It was a fairly low scoring game in which Greenthumb just couldn't get the hits in succession. The Storm played a very consistent game with one less than steller inning. However it's another win and the runs against were kept to single digits, so all in all it was a good result.

Que the comeback for the Storm 4 runs in the 5th, 3 in the 6th, and 5 more in the 7th but with time becoming a factor they just couldn't get one more run. Make the final Falcons 17 - Storm 16.

Storm out lasts Coulas 19 to 13

It was another typical game between Coulas and the Storm, get a few runs give up a few runs, get a few more, give back some more runs. This time the Storm came out on top. One thing for sure it's better to win this type game than lose it. Tomorrow it's the Falcon's, hopefully it will be a better defensive game.

Storm hang on for a 10 - 8 victory over Mayhem

It took 4 innings but the Storm finally managed to get a hit off a very stingy St Louis Mayhem pitching staff. The Storm defense was also very good for the first 5 innings as Mayhem never got past 3rd base with only a few hits here and there. Al and Mike Tyl were pitching quite well. The Storm scored 4 in the 4th and 6 in the 5th thanks to a three run bomb by Al. So going into the top of the 6th it was 10 to nothing. All that changed with a few defensive gaff's and a couple of well placed hits. The 7th wasn't much better, thankfully the Storm held Mayhem to only 3 runs. The last couple of innings weren't pretty but in the end, it is a victory for the Storm, make the final 10 - 8.
