‘Cats Clinch on Tuesday!
The ValleyCats clinched their second consecutive Stedler Division Title with a victory on Tuesday night.
Evan Grills turned in a clutch performance in limiting the Cyclones to just two runs in six innings of work. Grills recorded a season high eight k’s and did not issues any free passes.
The ‘Cats broke it open in the third inning as they plated three to take a 6-2 lead. Ronnie Mitchell led the way with two hits, including a big R.B.I. triple. The offense also displayed some patience working seven walks against the Cyclones pitchers.
Gonzalo Sanudo’s eighth save of the season closed it out and paved the way for a celebration in front of the home crowd!
Tuesday night was also our first ever Oktoberfest Celebration at the ballpark. Coined “Brats, Beer, & Baseball”, fans were greeted by Herb Liebenhagen playing some traditional German tunes on the accordion.
The Picnic Pavilion was turned into a German Beer Garden with an Oktoberfest-style menu!
The ‘Cats closed out the season with “Fans for Life Night” on Wednesday. Stay tuned for that recap shortly . . .
In the meantime, Playoff Tickets are on-sale now as the ‘Cats prepare to host Game 2 at “The Joe” on Saturday night!
