BLAZE TAKE TWO FROM THE SOUTH FLORIDA SNAPPERS GREEN.

AS THEY WERE TOLD BY COACH KLEIMAN BEFORE THE DOUBLEHEADER, THIS COULD BE A DAY WHERE THE BLAZE COULD SOLIDIFY THEIR PLAYOFF POSITION....THE TEAM DIDN'T DISAPPOINT. 

IN GAME 1, BLAZE PITCHER ZACH KLEIMAN PROVIDED A COMMANDING PERFORMANCE GOING THE DISTANCE...STRIKING OUT 7. THIS GAME LOOKED LIKE A TRUE PITCHERS DUEL UNTIL THE BLAZE 6TH, WHEN THEY SENT 12 HITTERS TO THE PLATE AND SCORED 7 RUNS.  KLEIMAN DID IT WITH THE BAT AS WELL ADDING 2 HITS, A WALK AND A RUN SCORED. RICHARD CHERNOFF DROVE IN 2 OF THE 7 RUNS. DOM MARENGO ADDED 2 HITS OF HIS OWN.

IN GAME 2, THE BLAZE SENT DOM MARENGO TO THE HILL. AFTER STRONG 1ST INNING, THE SNAPPERS BROKE THROUGH FOR 2 RUNS IN THE 2ND......THAT PROVED TO BE ALL THE RUNS THAT THE SNAPPERS WOULD GET FROM THE BLAZE'S STINGY DEFENSE AND PITCHING. CHRIS NEWELL THREW 3 STRONG INNINGS IN MIDDLE RELIEF AND SKYLER FOX CAM ON IN THE 6TH INNING TO CLOSE OUT THE GAME. ONCE AGAIN, THE BLAZE DISPLAYED THEIR PITCHING DEPTH.

CHERNOFF HAD GREAT CONTROL DURING HIS 6 PLUS INNINGS ON THE MOUND IN WHICH HE YIELDED 2 RUNS (6IP, 5H, 1BB), OF WHICH ONLY ONE WAS EARNED. AFTER A LEADOFF SINGLE IN THE SIXTH, CHERNOFF GAVE WAY TO COLLIN, WHO GAVE UP ONE HIT IN TWO SCORELESS INNINGS TO EARN THE SAVE. THE BLAZE KNOTTED THE GAME AT 1 IN THE TOP OF THE 3RD INNING AFTER BLAZE CATCHER ZACH FRIELAND WAS HIT BY A PITCH, PINCH RUNNER JARED HEIDT SCORED FROM FIRST ON A LONG DOUBLE BY ADAM MUND. THE BLAZE SUBSEQUENTLY ADDED A RUN IN THE 4TH AND PUT THE GAME AWAY IN THE 6TH AND 7TH WHERE THEY PLATED 4 MORE RUNS.

IN THE PRELIMINARY GAMES, THE BLAZE LOST TO THE SOUTH FLORIDA RAZORBACKS 10 -9. AFTER SPOTTING THE RAZORBACKS 7 (MOSTLY UNEARNED) RUNS IN THE 1ST INNING, THE BLAZE CLAWED THEIR WAY BACK BY PUTTING UP 7 OF THEIR OWN IN THE 5TH INNING. HOWEVER, IN THE END, THE RALLY FELL SHORT.

IN THE 2ND GAME, THE BLAZE FELL BEHIND TO THE MUSKEGO WARRIORS 3 - 0 IN THE FIRST INNING. 3 BLAZE RUNS IN THE 6TH INNING WAS NOT ENOUGH TO OVERCOME A 4 RUN DEFICIT AND THE BLAZE LOST 5 - 3.

IN THE 1ST ELIMINATION GAME, THE BLAZE MET AN OLD RIVAL, THE BROWARD PANTHERS. ROBERT (RC) COLLIN PITCHED 4 STRONG INNINGS, GIVING UP ONLY 1 RUN. HE RECEIVED MORE THEN AMPLE SUPPORT AS THE BLAZE RACKED UP 16 RUNS IN THE SHORTENED GAME.

BLAZE FALL TO LUMBERKINGS, 2-1
DESPITE SUPERB PITCHING PERFORMANCES FROM ZACH KLEIMAN AND RICHARD CHERNOFF, THE BLAZE WERE DEFEATED BY THE LUMBERKINGS. THE BLAZE FELL BEHIND 1-0 IN THE FIRST INNING, BUT STRONG DEFENSE AND GREAT PITCHING FROM ZACH KLEIMAN (6IP, 4H, 4K, 0ER) KEPT THE BLAZE IN THE GAME AGAINST A VERY GOOD HITTING TEAM. THE BLAZE HAD A CHANCE TO TIE THE GAME WHEN HARRISON FRANETIC HIT A LONG DRIVE OFF OF THE TOP OF THE OUTFIELD FENCE WHICH SCORED COLIN MARTINDALE. THE BALL DELECTED BACK INTO THE FIELD OF PLAY AND FRANETIC SETTLED FOR A DOUBLE. UNFORTUNATELY, FRANETIC WAS STRANDED AT SECOND AS THE GAME ENDED. RICHARD CHERNOFF, PITCHED WELL IN RELIEF (1IP, 2H, 1K, 1ER) IN HIS BLAZE DEBUT. IN ADDITION TO FRANETIC, ADAM MUND (2 HITS), ADRIAN GARCIA (2B) AND CHERNOFF PROVIDED THE BALANCE OF THE OFFENSE FOR THE BLAZE.
