Week 2 ORWBL Recap

Granger Panthers @ Union Mills Goon Squad

GM 1: UM, 4-3

GM 2: GR, 19-1

GM 3: GR, 21-6

This matchup featured a pair of 3-0 teams heading into Week 2 as the Granger Panthers made the trip to Union Mills to take on the Goon Squad. The Goon Squad delivered a shocking victory in Game 1 which certainly made its way around the league pretty quickly. Granger was able to avoid any further damage though as they really turned it on in Games 2 & 3 as they dominated in both of those games, scoring at least eight runs in the first inning of both. While the Panthers won the series, the Goon Squad has to be feeling pretty good after taking one from one of the best teams in the league as these guys are definitely taking some steps in the right direction in year 3. Goon Squad has another chance to take a game (or more) from an undefeated team as they host the South Bend Truffle Butter (6-0) this Sunday.

(GR) Griffin Smith: 14-22, 10 R, 3 RBI, 3 HR, 15 IP, 10 ER, (2-1)
