The Chicago Hounds secured a playoff spot yesterday with a 6-0 win over the now 20-11 Electrons in front of more than 20 rabid fans (including the entire Brent Schoenbach [#7, 3B] immediate family). The Hounds won the season series v. the Trons today 2 games to 1 and were awarded K’ Cup, a commemorative bottle of Jameson (“Product of Chicago”), and many Italian beefs.
The Chicago Hounds are now 15-14 after a 7-6 bizarre win v. the Marlins at SW Park tonight.

The Chicago Hounds won 9-5 over the Pirates in an 8-inning 100 degree game at Veterans Memorial Maywood Park this morning. The Hounds are now 14-14, took the season series from the Pirates 2 games to 1, and have just 5 games left in the 2019 CMBA regular season. Tim Riggenbach (#8, P) threw a solid 4 innings to start, and then Kurt Kerrigan (#12, DH/P) threw a just as solid 4 innings in relief.
The Hounds won 13-1 in a 6-inning-slaughter fest v. Ramirez Baseball today. Everyone got in the game, the Hounds played well on offense, defense, and pitching. As always, we beat up the bad teams, but we are are .500 against the middle teams, and really struggle against the good teams. The 2019 CMBA playoffs are still a possibility, but it will require the Hounds to win as many of the last 6 games as possible.
Normally I do not call out errors. I may mention them, but don’t mention the player, as I feel it is unfair and even unkind.
