Strong Showing Versus 'Jaxx Earns Bye for Expos; Will Face Padres in Semis | Article Posted July 27, 2009

In need of a sweep and help to pick up the CVBL's #2 seed and accompanying first-round bye, M/R held up their end of the bargain and benefitted from a Miners/Padres split to earn the slot.  Hockey Plus/Loreman's subsequent perilous win versus the Athletics in Round One allowed them to advance to face the Expos in the semis, the two squads opening up a best-of-three series next weekend in Saranac.

Chief among those responsible for getting M/R a semifinal berth and homefield advantage was Mike Bergman, who pitched all 12 innings versus the Timberjaxx to earn both Expos wins.  His second game was particularly impressive, as unfazed by the wear on his arm, he held the Fourth Ward to just a single hit in their final inning at the plate.

From the plate, the day belonged to Justin Mahan.  The Southside native did not disappoint within the familiar confines of South Acres Field, notching a five-for-six day with two homeruns.

Next Sunday sees the outset of a series between two remarkably well-matched teams.  Both the Expos and Padres finished 13-7 on the season.  The teams split both of their regular season doubleheaders, and are 4-4 over the history of the Expos.  An aggregate-run tiebreaker was needed to separate the squads for playoff seeding purposes.  As far as entertainment value goes, it doesn't get much better than this.
