Eight is enough for Greensox in one-run victory over Cannons
Donnie "Brasco" Greenfield had two RBI ... forget about it !
ARVADA, Colo. (August 17, 2014) - The Greensox (3-11-2) defeated the Cannons (7-7-2) by the score of 8-7 on Sunday afternoon, August 17, at Arvada West High School.

Eight was the number that doomed the Cannons on this afternoon. In fact, it followed them around all day. The Greensox compiled eight hits, and they finished with eight runs. Eight was the number of wild pitches thrown by the Cannons; four of which plated runs. Eight was the number of walks allowed by the Cannons. It was also the number of unearned runs allowed by the Cannons. That's right ... none of the runs scored by the Greensox proved to be earned. Eight was also the number of defensive miscues committed by the Cannons, including seven fielding errors and one passed ball.

All of this coming after the Cannons jumped out to a four-run lead in the top half of the first inning. The loss dropped the Cannons into fifth place in the league standings. Danny Hodges registered the only multi-hit game for the Cannons, going 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and an RBI. Donnie Greenfield had two RBI and Terry Harrison (1-for-2, two BB), Carlos Bossy (1-for-3, HBP, run) and Jeff Duggan (two runs, SB) drove in one run apiece. Mike Mora (1-for-3, BB) scored two runs and stole two bases.

The Cannons are scheduled to conclude the regular-season portion of their schedule with a game against the Spartans (8-7-1) on Sunday morning, August 24, at 9:00 a.m. at Lincoln High School. After a bye week over the Labor Day weekend, the playoffs will begin on Sunday, September 7 (times, locations and pairings for the playoffs are yet to be announced by the NABA).

NOTES: According to how the NABA has proposed its playoff bracket, the Cannons would square off against the Spartans in the quarterfinal round of the playoffs on Sunday, September 7 ... The semifinals will be held on Sunday, September 14 ... The championship game will be held on Sunday, September 21 ... All eight teams in the 35W division will make the playoffs ... The quarterfinals will feature #1 seed vs. #8 seed, #2 seed vs. #7 seed, #3 seed vs. #6 seed, and #4 seed vs. #5 seed ... The Cannons and Spartans will comprise the #4 and #5 seeds in the playoffs ... The lone playoff implication of week's game against the Spartans will be the determination of which squad clinches the higher seed ... Wouldn't it be satisfying to defeat the Grizzlies in either the semifinals or the championship game? ... If that's not a motivating factor, check your pulse ... The Greensox stranded 16 runners on Sunday; the Cannons left 10 runners on base ... The Cannons and Greensox combined for a total of 13 wild pitches ... The Cannons had 11 players at the game, only nine of whom were physically healthy enough to play defense in the latter innings.
