Saw the Marathon-Newman baseball game yesterday....great game with Newman scoring twice in the bottom of the 7th to win 2-1. A couple of observations.....if yesterday is any indication, teams won't let Cody Hanke beat them unless he gets more protection behind him in the order. Newman walked him intentionally twice, and the second time in the 7th, first base was occupied.

Hanke and Newman's Luke Prososki were terrific on the mound. After Hanke's great success the last couple of years not a surprise, but how Prososki shut down Marathon...no earned runs on 2 hits over 7 innings....was very impressive. Nick Bush, who had the two-run double that won it in the seventh and a hard single off Hanke in the sixth also looks like he will be a force in the middle of the order for Newman.

Overall, both teams will be tough with their pitching and the offense has some questionmarks in the last half of the order. With Pittsville looking good plus a pretty good Assumption team and Edgar as well, looks like a pretty solid conference.

The last couple of years Newman has played Marathon tough. Marathon is down a bit this year but they have a great coach and the season is young. Plenty of time for the younger kids to get on track.

I would like to say congrats to the Newman team on a great win and I believe that win breaks Marathons 51 game conference win streak???

Good luck the rest of the way!!!
