Monday, August 5
The Bears endured another tough loss in Game 2 of the Championship series on Monday night. The Bears would threaten, with the tying run on second base in the top of the 7th but they couldn't push him across and lost the game 6-5 to go down two games to none in the series. The Bears managed just 5 hits in the game and couldn't capitalize on 6 Mas errors. Chad Chamness delivered a big triple in the 3rd. Mark Robbins scored twice. Game 3 is scheduled for Wednesday night. For the Bears, it's win or go home.

The Bears scored 6 times in the first two innings and led this game 6-0 heading into the 4th inning. That's when the bats went cold. They would not score another run in the game. Meanwhile, Mas Cantina, after being stagnant for four innings, came alive and tied up the game in the bottom of the 6th. The Bears hitters went down 1-2-3 in both the 7th and 8th innings. Mas would push a run across in the bottom of the 8th and go on to the 7-6 win and 1-0 series lead. The Bears offense was led by Phil Frayne, who went 3-for-3 with a double and an RBI. Carl Jacobsen led the defense with 4 assisted put-outs and a diving stop and put-out at first base in the 2nd that saved a run. The Bears look to even the series on the road Monday at 7:45pm.

Morris Buttermaker was drunk when he figured out the budget for the Bears this year. He only charged the players for umpire fees up until the Semi-Finals, which means the Bears players will have to chip in and bring CASH to each game to cover the umpires during the Championship. And since the Championship features a two-umpire system, double the regular umpire fee per game is necessary. $5 per player, per game should cover it.
