National League Week 4 Recap

After another beautiful weekend of Wiffleball, Week 4 is in the books and somehow, we are already close to the halfway point of the season. Looking back into this week we had some exciting matchups in the National league. Starting off with the matchup of the week, the Mishawaka Meatspins took on the 1st place Green Stem Great Lakes Godfathers out of the American League.

With an opening line at -2, the Meatspins were favored but the Godfathers were able to take game 1, 14-9. This didn’t stop the Meatspins from bouncing back and winning a close second game by the score of 4-3. After Game 2, it was all Meatspins as they held the Godfathers to just 4 runs to win the series and Game 3 by the score of 11-4. The Spins now sit at #3 in the NL rankings and will travel to The Den to take on the Mill Pond Pink Pandas in their 2nd interleague matchup of the year.

Going into the next matchup, the Granger Panthers were able to sweep the Lynn Street Leprechauns out at Rose Park. The Leps coming off a sweep and their best start in franchise history had a lot of momentum heading into this series, but the reigning NL champs weren’t fazed as they won 3 very close games. Good teams win but great teams cover and Leps were able to cover their line of +6 in all 3 with final scores being 6-3, 5-4, and 2-1.

The Leps drop down to #4 in the rankings while Granger is at #2 just one game back from the Billy Goats. The Panthers will host what might be their toughest matchup of the year as they take on the Maple City Magic in a rematch from the 2018 and 2021 World Series'. Meanwhile, the Leps will look to get back on track as they take on the 0-win Beers at home.

The National League leading Billy Goats traveled to Glen Lee and took care of business as they got the sweep. In a very low scoring series with just 7 total runs scored between both teams, the Goats scored just enough to win with scores of 2-0, 2-0, 3-1.

The skeeters did manage to cover all 3 games at +3.5 but at -130 the Goats to sweep helped cash a +838 parlay from “The best ORWBL betting sharp” ORWBL Bets. The Skeeters are sitting at #8 in the standings and will host the Cyclones in Week 5 as they try to get some traction heading into the halfway point of the season.

Twin Branch on the other hand now stands alone at the top of the National League with a record of 10-2 as they will travel to Niles with their lights on as they try to navigate through “The Fog” and continue their hot start against the Godfathers.

Moving on to the pair of series that took place in New Carlisle, we start with New Carlisle themselves, the Newts. The Newts hosted the winless Willow Creek Warpigs and the only trouble they had going against them was covering their line of -13.5. With scores of 14-3, 10-3, and 8-0 the Newts swept with ease. Sitting at the bottom of the standings the Warpigs will continue their journey to win their first game as they travel to Crown Point to take on O.T.F.

The Newts on the other hand are not going to have it so easy again in Week 5 as they are hosting the reigning World Series Champion, the South Bend Truffle Butter. With a high of 85 on Sunday it might just be hot enough for the Newts to melt the Truffle Butter and win the series.

The other series that took place in New Carlisle and last one out of the NL, the Kounty Line Knights took a short drive over to Lynn Williams Field to face the Hudson Lake Heat. The Heat started the series off hot taking Game 1 12-4. The Knights bats continued to struggle throughout Game 1 and didn’t get going until Game 2 where they were able to win 11-6 and cover -1.

With the series on the line in the rubber match, the Knights were able to steal a close one with a final score of 9-6 to win the series and cash the last leg of ORWBL Bets +838 parlay. The Heat and Knights are both tied at #5 in the standings with a 6-6 record.

The Heat will travel to Lakeport to take on the Bombers and look to get back on track. The Knights will kick off the Week 5 slate and look to build off of this series win as they travel to Bourissa Hills and will play the Wildcards this Friday at 6PM ET.
