What a game! The 2:00 pm game against the Sliders was something to watch. For the first three innings or so the Dawgs were on fire taking the lead 5-0. Awesome hitting and fielding lefet the Sliders wondering who were these guys, especially after beating the Dwags so bady on Sunday.
Unfortunately, once again, it wasn’t meant to be; plagued by errors the Dawgs found themselves tied in the 6th, 6-6. In the 7th the Dawgs scored, but more base running errors shutdown their hard work early and they fell victim to the Sliders, 7-8. It was a good game, but a hard lesson to learn for both the kids and the parents.
The Mud Dawgs are off this week – another tournament starts Friday.

Sunday was another long day at the ballpark. The Mud Dawgs split yesterdays games losing to the Missouri Sliders, but beating the Macon Heat.
This Monday morning, we're back at it again! Had to be at the park by 7:30 am to take on the Explosions. The Dawgs won 16-4, I believe, after awhile all the scores seem to blur together. Another game at 2:00 pm against the Sliders. The Sliders are a pretty good AAA team and are a handful for the Dawgs. Sam has struggled these last few games, but seems to getting things back on track. If they can beat the Sliders this afternoon, that'll put them in the championship game at 4:00 pm. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Seems like every weekend Sam's playing in a tournament – pretty much believe that's the case for the forseeable future. Back at Columbia, MO this weekend. Saturday's games we're at 10:00 am and 12:00 pm – nice an hot today. The 10 o'clock game was against a AAA team, the Mud Dawgs are AA; not sure what the score was, but we lost pretty bad – shutout I believe. The Dawgs took out their fustration out on JCBI at noon, beating them pretty bad. Pay back for whipping us last weekend I suppose.
Two games Sunday; 10:00 am against another AAA team then 6:00 pm against a AA team. All day on Monday if the dawgs play well.
