Expos Win Big, then Fall Hard Versus Miners | Article Posted June 13, 2009

Solid hitting and a fine start by Mike Bergman ensured at least some measure for the Expos for last season's drubbing at the hands of the Lyon Mountain Miners.  The Miners came out swinging for game two, however, and reasserted their place as defending champs with a dominant 15-5 showing.

Bergman's 3-hit gem found support from his battery-mate Casey Brighton, who notched a double in his Expos debut.  Cliff Conners turned a masterful double play, once again underscoring the vastly improved defense displayed by the Expos this season.

Game two found the Expos unable to stem the late-inning tide of the Miners' bats, as both starter Billy Davis and Bergman, this time in relief, were hard-pressed to put an end to the barrage of hits.  Brighton continued to impress with his second double in two games, but the Expos couldn't match Lyon Mountain's potent attack.

With three straight splits and a 5-3 overall record, the Expos stand alone in second on the CVBL leaderboard.  With the 6-1 Cardinals coming in for an away-at-home doubleheader Sunday, a sweep would send M/R to the top of the standings, while two losses would drop them to .500.  It's a pivotal twinbill, and given the teams' clash earlier this season, it stands to be an entertaining one as well.
