With the help of new free agent players Chris June and James Leary, the Predators shook of the chilly 45 degree gametime temperature and cruised to a win this afternoon at Platt Tech Field.

In the 2nd inning the Predators added 4 more runs to take an 8-0 lead.  James Leary, Chris June, David Weiss and Daryle Graf each singled and later scored in the inning. Bob Paradis and  Matt Kraynak each contributed RBI singles in the inning.  In the top of the 3rd, the Predators extended their lead to 12-0.  Jeremy Weaver led the inning with a double to right and later scored on an RBI single by Carl Malinosky. James Leary and Chis June singled and scored on a single by David Weiss and a sacrifice by Daryle Graf.  Bob Paradis drove the last run on a sacrifice. In the bottom of the 3rd, Pitch Perfect finally scored - getting 2 runs on multiple fielding and throwing errors by the Predators.

After each team was scoreless in the 4th, the Predators added 4 insurance runs in the top of the 5th.  After Chris June led the inning off with a walk, Carl Malinosky singled. David Weiss drove in a run with a single. Daryle Graf crushed a triple to drive in two runs. Bob Paradis drove in the final run with his 2nd sacrifice of the day to give the Predators a commanding 16-2 lead.  In the bottom of the 5th, Pitch Perfect rallied with few hits and a couple of runs, but fell short of saving their day in a 16-4 mercy rule loss to the Predators.

Predators Return for 33rd Season In Milford Sunday Night League

The Predators have reopened their front office and have confirmed they will retun to plan in the Milford Umpires Association Sunday Night League for their 33rd consecutive season. The Predators (formerly known as "Shop Rite" from 1984-1995), return with a senior veteran core that have decades of softball experience.  Despite being the elder statesman of the league, the Predators will once again fight the elements and their aging bodies to battle against the "youts" of the league.

The Predators currently seek additional players to bolster their roster, and fill in for a "few" areas of need.  GM Matt Kraynak is looking to pick up help from the City of Milford Free Agent list as well as  from recommendations by trusted peers.
