Hounds need to win

The Chicago Hounds lost 5-4 in 10 innings v. the league-leading Marlins yesterday, and then lost 15-6 tonight v. the playoff bound Browns. The score was 4-4 after 4 innings tonight, but then the Browns took over–despite home runs from both Keith Richardson (#17, 1B/SS) and T.J. Rinaldi (#1, CF).
The Hounds are now 12-14-1, and still in 6th place in the CMBA with 25 points, but could be overtaken by the Vikings, Yankees, or Red Sox, who all have potential for more total points as they have more games to play.
The Hounds play the cellar dwelling Rangers the final 3 games of the season–a doubleheader on Saturday and the final game next Tuesday. If they win all 3 games, the Hounds still have the potential to get a playoff spot with 31 points, but it will require the Vikings to have no more than 15 wins (31 points as well, but the Hounds have the tiebreaker), the Yankees to have a max of 15 wins (30 points), and the Red Sox to have a max of 15/30 as well. The Aviators and Orioles do not yet have 30 points either, but with 8 and 6 games remaining, they are unlikely to lose out.
Not impossible, but not necessarily easy either. The Hounds will rest up, try to heal some injuries over the next 4 days, and then look to sweep the doubleheader v. the Rangers at Winnemac on Saturday.
