Grizzlies Return Home For Series vs. Washington

Hello all!  Gateway finished up their three-game series with the Southern Illinois Miners on Sunday night in Marion, IL.  Southern Illinois took down Gateway 4-2 to win the series and pull a game ahead of the Grizzlies in the Frontier League wild card standings.  If the playoffs started today; Traverse City, Windy City, Southern Illinois and Gateway would be in the that order.  Gateway is now 1 1/2 games back of Windy City in the Frontier League West Division. 

After winning 9 straight series the Grizzlies have now lost two straight series for the first time in nearly two months.  Gateway has two series coming up with team's that have losing records (home vs. Washington and away @ Evansville).  The Grizzlies would love to get back to winning series.  After an off day Monday, ace right-hander Tim Brown will try to get the Grizzlies back on track Tuesday night.

Landon Hernandez caught fire with a 5-hit series @ Southern Illinois.  Watch out for 'Lando' down the stretch, he has really looked good in August (hitting over .400 for the month).  Also, keep an eye on Jon Myers who has been hitting for power AND average as of late.

Only 18 games remain in the 2012 regular season.  This is going to be a fun of couple of weeks with the Grizzlies chasing down a playoff spot.  I can't wait to see how this unfolds in the next three weeks.  HERE WE GO!  Go Grizzlies!
