Works very fast, hard to get in a rhythm against. Seems to be a very high makeup guy. And good command. It’s probably a #...

Re: Minor League Playoff Discussion & Boxes, 9-6-18

Eugene advances to the NWL Finals with their second consecutive 3-2 win.

They navigated around a 2nd and 3rd, 1 out situation in the bottom of the 9th.

No game thread tomorrow.

Eugene is up 3-2 in the 7th. Win and they advance. Lose and there will be a deciding Game 3 tomorrow.

Reminder, Eugene had the worst record in the NWL this year and their opponent Hillsboro had the best.
