Thanks to a couple of nice outings from starting pitchers James Cleeland and Brian Houdek, the Cheetahs swept the doubleheader from the Canton Coyotes 1-0 (8 innings) and 6-0. (Note: In the Frontier League, when a doubleheader is scheduled, 2-seven inning games take place, rather than the customary 9 inning game). The doubleheader resulted from the rainout on Friday night, 6-14.

Game one was a close game. It seemed anytime one of the teams got something going the opposing teams pitcher snuffed out the rally. The game went extra innings and the Cheetahs pulled it out in the bottom of the 8th on Sean Bisofberger's RBI sacrifice fly, pushing across Pichi Balet from third.

The win got the Cheetahs back to the .500 mark, 7-7 on the season. Starter James Cleeland went a strong 7 inings, getting out of jams when he had to, but did not figure in the decision. Cleeland struck out 8 and walked 3 in his 7 innings of work.

Game two also featured superb pitching from the Cheetah staff. In the 6-0 Game 2 win, Brian Houdek went the distance allowing only 2 hits and 1 walk, while striking out 5, in pitching the Cheetahs to the 6-0 shutout. The Cheetah bats came alive in game 2 pounding out 10 hits. Both Dan Firlit & Pichi Balet had 3 hits and "Big John" Hambleton drove in 3 runs.

But Houdek was terrific! If Houdek & Cleeland can keep pitching the way they are(ie: be consistent each outing) buy your tickets early Cheetah fans because these guys will be the mainstays of the staff.

Manager Dana Forsberg's Cheetah squad is doing some very nice things at "The Hawk" (Hawkinson Ford Field) this season. COME OUT AND WATCH YA'ALL!!!

GM Chuck: I hope you take my suggestion seriously and put the game used cracked Cheetah bats on sale at the concession stand. Sell 'em for $10.00 with 1/2 the proceeds going to Cheetah Charities. I'll buy a few for sure!

Bring on Chillicothe!!!
