Meron's Playing Its Best Ball Down Home Stretch | Article Posted June 26, 2010

First off, a quick apology for the hiatus: various off-field business has stemmed the regular stream of articles.  The site should become more reliable as we march toward the playoffs.

Luckily, the website is just about the only thing that hasn't run like clockwork for the Expos over the past month.  Since a Game 2 loss versus Lyon Mountain (in a doubleheader that saw the 'Spos hand the Miners their only CVBL setback so far this season), Meron's has swept a pair of league doubleheaders and performed admirably through their non-league schedule, posting a 10-1 record over the span.

If a single player can be cited for his contributions over the run, it's undoubtedly pitcher Billy Davis.  The Press-Republican's praise of his "rubber-armed" play is too complementary of rubber: Billy has appeared - if not started - in virtually every game of late for a staff plagued by the injury bug, providing sorely needed stability on the mound.

The Expos' bats, meanwhile, have fulfilled every expectation generated by the talented players who swing them.  Nick Lamica and Tory Bouyea vex the league with their abilities to both reach first and steal their way into scoring position.  Sluggers like Davis, Mike Bergman, and Mark Passino provide ample pop: a full half of Bergman's hits, for example, have been homeruns.  Newcomers like Paul Bruno and Ryan Barcomb likewise make their mark through solid defense and excellent speed.

With the team clicking as well as it has in franchise history, a place alone in the two-spot of the CVBL standings, and a showdown in Lyon Mountain looming on July 3rd, the real concern at the moment becomes the battle against complacency, particularly given the dangerous doubleheader upcoming versus the Timberjaxx.  While the Jaxx' season has proven a frustrating affair so far, they still carry both potent bats and a well-documented ability to stay in big games.  Nonetheless, the Expos can take the field Sunday confident that they've performed to their utmost in recent weeks.
