Snappers finish season with win over Huskies
With only two days left in the regular season and being 3 games behind the Florida Pokers for the last playoff spot almost everyone counted the snappergang out. Then the unthinkable happened as they took two from the Pokers on Wednesday and finished with a 7-3 victory over the Huskies on the last day of the season. "It was fun to watch the guys play with their backs against the wall the past couple days," says GM Ryan Lamb.
The Snappers finish out the 37 game regular season 17-20 and might be the hottest team entering the playoffs. We asked pitching coach Julien Soucy for his thoughts on the late run his team made. He answered "The Snappers are feeling good about our chances as we're riding a three game streak, the boys have done a great job of gelling to find their identity from game one to game 37 of the summer."
