Week 3 ORWBL Recap
The ORWBL regular season continued on Sunday as we are already 9 games into the season. After sweeping the previously unbeaten Truffle Butter, the Union Mills Goon Squad are the talk of the league as they are off to a 7-2 start here in their 3rd season in the league. Starting with the action in Union Mills let's take a brief look at what happened around the league in Week 3.
South Bend Truffle Butter @ Union Mills Goon Squad
GM 1: UM, 8-4
GM 2: UM, 23-11
GM 3: UM, 17-5
The South Bend Truffle Butter made their first road trip of the season as they brought a 6-0 record into Union Mills to take on the Goon Squad. After taking one game from the Panthers last week, this Goon Squad team was eager to show that it was no fluke. The Union Mills players brought the energy from start to finish as the Truffle Butter were no match for the Goon Squad on this day as the majority of the Truffle Butter lineup seemed to struggle after playing in the GBL league in the morning. Regardless, the Goon Squad was definitely the better team on this day as this series sweep is certainly turning some heads around the league. 2020 National League Rookie of the Year Josh Trim continued his fantastic start to the season as he sits 2nd atop the Home Run leaderboard after nine games. Trim was also named Wiffle Talk's Week 3 National League Player of the Week after hitting 10 HR to go along with 12 Runs and 15 RBI. The Goon Squad will now head on the road for the first time this season after finishing the nine game home stand with a 7-2 record. After winning five games in each of their first 2 seasons, it looks like Union Mills is taking that next step in the right direction.
Notable stats from the series:
(UM) Josh Trim: 13-20, 12 R, 15 RBI, 10 HR
(UM) Jake Osburn: 13-22, 12 R, 7 RBI, 3 HR, 16 IP, 19 ER, 1 SO, (3-0)
