The Hounds finished the 2018 CMBA season 1 game short of the playoffs. The Hounds needed to defeat the Aviators to secure second place, but were bested 11-2. The Hounds also lost to the Browns 20-3 and beat the Yankees 13-0 in the final week of the season.
The Hounds lost 10-9 to the division leading Browns today at an awful Proviso West field, but despite the loss the Hounds still control their destiny for the playoffs. If the Hounds can win their final three games (v. the Browns, Aviators, and Yankees), the Hounds are definitely in the playoffs.

Write up from Matt Burch:
The Hounds topped the Pirates 1-0 today, led by a hangover and newly engaged Tim Riggenbach.
As the Hounds faithful know, Tim pitches his best with a slight headache and a bac sitting in the .06 – .10 range, which was the case today. Riggenbach was “PHENOMENAL” on the mound as noted by commissioner/Pirates manager Jeff Papadopolopoditis posting a 4 hit complete game shutout.
Only 5 games to go in the 2018 CMBA season and all possibilities are alive:
– Hounds win all 5 = first place and a bye
– Other scenarios with Hounds losing 1 or more games = second place
– Other scenarios with Hounds losing 1 or more games = wild card
– Other scenarios with Hounds losing 1 or more games = no playoffs at all
Yes, we could be first, second, wild card, or not in the playoffs at all. Our fate is in our hands if we win all 5, but anything short of that requires some help from other teams losing.
Come support us in the final 5 games!
In a game filled with fantastic pitching and defense by both teams, the Hounds were able to defeat the Yankees 4-3 today at Winnemac Park to improve to 15-12 and keep their playoff hopes alive.
