'Spos Split Again, Hand Cardinals Second Loss | Article Posted June 20, 2009

While last Sunday's result was tedious for its familiarity - the Expos' 4th split in five weekends of play - it nonetheless provided a promising win and a 2-2 season record versus the  league-leading and otherwise undefeated Plattsburgh Cardinals.

Game one followed a familiar storyline: the M/R starter, in this case Mike Bergman, turned in a rock-solid effort, only to be upstaged by an equally impressive opponent.  In this case, it was Cardinal Craig Bujold, who made the Cardinals' three runs stand up in allowing only two by the Expos.

Of the four matchups this season between Plattsburgh and the 'Spos, game two of this week's twinbill probably featured the clearest single-game disparity in play between the teams.  Steve Burris, previously dominant for the Cards, fell victim to Expos salvoes in the first and third that provided all of the offense the Expos needed for their 6-2 win.  Mark Passino broke out for a pair of hits, while Nick Lamica drew three walks and moved at will along the basepaths.  Meanwhile, Billy Davis avenged his previous hard-luck 2-hit loss to Plattsburgh with another superb performance.

The Fourth Ward Timberjaxx visit this Sunday, reeling from consecutive sweeps by the Cardinals and Padres.  This misfortune, however, is likely to simply render the 'Jaxx all the more dangerous: their personnel stacks up against any roster in the league, and they'll come in sick and tired of losing games.  The twinbill promises to test the Expos' resolve as they enter the latter half of the season.
