Many home games left for Scrappers

The Scrappers will look to avoid a three-game sweep at Vermont tonight . The Lake Monsters, Oakland’s affiliate, is sitting at the bottom of the Stedler Division with a 20-30 mark. However, the Monsters have won three straight and have been formidable at home this season (13-13). The Scrappers are hoping to snap a three-game skid.

At 21-29, Mahoning Valley is in sixth place in the Pinckney Division – 11 games back of State College. The Scrappers are also 6 games behind Connecticut in the Wild Card chase. With 26 games left (15 at home, 11 on the road), the boys from Niles will have an opportunity to make things interesting as the final month of the season unwinds. Ted Kubiak’s group will play against the top two teams in the division a total of 10 times (State College: 5; Williamsport, 5). The Scrappers have finished their previous two campaigns with 30 wins each year.

On Wednesday, Mahoning Valley returns to Eastwood Field to begin a six-game home stand against Brooklyn and Staten Island.
