Week 7 Previews and Predictions:
Series 1: Butcherz vs. Bandits, 11:00 am at Eisenhower Field 1
The Butcherz picked up their first win via forfeit last week and were almost able to sweep the Hurricanes. All in all it was a positive day for the upstart Butcherz led by Captain Moe. This week’s match-up versus Bandits will be tough as the Bandits have been shellacking the ball lately with the likes of Junior and Mike. And if you didn’t notice, they have yet to be defeated. The community sees the Bandits sweeping the Butcherz comfortably. Score Prediction: Game 1: Bandits 18, Butchers 10. Game 2: Bandits 14, Butcherz 10. As we continue to report, the Butcherz have the talent on the offensive side, but their lack of outfield defense and overall organized structure falters them at times.
Series 2: Diamond Cuttaz vs. Thunderbirds, 2:00 pm at Eisenhower Field 1
Two very similar teams trying to make a name for them in the latest CSL season. Both teams have a lot of promising players such as Ozzie and Omar for Thunderbirds and David, Manju, and Usman for DC. Considering the circumstances, their records are exactly what was predicted during the preseason – at around 500. Their first series in week 2 was split. Offenses are solid for these two but there are holes in the D. This series we expect similar results where the offense will be lively for both squads and the defense will allow big innings. The Thunderbirds have historically have just collapsed in one inning of each of their losses. Hopefully Captain Waqas can make the adjustment. The community sees this series as a split. Score Prediction: Game 1: Thunderbirds 14, DC 10. Game 2: DC 12, Thunderbirds 7.
Series 3: Hurricanes vs. Panthers, 5:00 pm at Eisenhower Field 1
The Hurricanes are slowly inching up the standings. It is well known that Alisher is getting his superstar players qualified to make a run down the stretch. The Panthers have played consistent ball all season. With the addition of Leo, Alex, and Miguel this team is now legit and arguably can beat anyone. This contest we expect two good teams fighting for the no. 2 spot. The scores will be average and the defense will be superb. The community sees this as a split in a pitcher’s duel. Score Prediction: Game 1: Panthers 8, Hurricanes 6. Game 2: Hurricanes 10, Panthers 8.
