With 23 games left in the season its starting to come down to the business end of the season. After 45 games we are in 2nd place and 6 games behind division leaders the Johnson City Cardinals. To make it to the playoffs in the Appalachian League you need to finish in the top 2 in your division.
We recently played a 3 game series against the Kingsport Mets who are in 3rd place in our division. We lost 2 out of those 3 games which means Kingsport gained a game on us in the standings. The main goal is to make the playoffs but it would be nice to finish in 1st place and have a playoff series at home. When we get back from our road trip we start a 3 games series against the Cardinals which will be a big series for us to catch up to them.
After playing in the playoffs in the Australian Baseball League and not going all the way, you start to get hungry to win a championship. I'm pretty confident that we can put everything together and make a strong run home to the playoffs and ultimately win another championship for Elizabethton.
