CANNONS NOTES: All five games thus far in 2016 have been played at Bear Creek High School ... Both games postponed by snow/rain (April 17 and May 1) were scheduled to be played elsewhere ... Jacob Maupin (.421 avg.) made a pair of nice plays at third base after moving out from behind the plate for the final two innings on May 22 ... The Cannons did not issue a walk against the Bison ... Allgire made a great catch deep in the left-center gap in the bottom of the eighth inning to preserve the ten-run-rule victory ... Allgire (.429 avg.) grounded into a very rare "fielder's choice double play" against the Bison ... Zavislan (1.44 ERA) is now averaging better than 10 strikeouts (10.05) per nine innings less than two walks (1.72) per nine innings ... Zavislan, who is hitting .600 overall and .857 (6-for-7) with runners in scoring position, leads the team in hits (12) and has a team-second-most eight RBI ...

Smith (.474 avg., three triples, .895 slg. %, five RBI) leads the team in runs scored (12) ... Bode is now hitting .500 ... Bossy (.500 on-base %) leads the club with six walks ... Beautiful weather paved the way for a voluminous (by NABA standards) crowd at Bear Creek High School on May 22 ... Kyle's family had perhaps the strongest showing, with mother Susie, brother Dan, son Dylan, daughters Taylor and Adrienne, and Zach (Taylor's boyfriend) in attendance ... Five Cannons showcased their defensive versatility by playing at least two positions against the Bison.
