YPSILANTI, MI, August 12, 2009

The Midwest Sliders of Ypsilanti let another game slip through their fingers. They fell 3-1 to the Evansville Otters for the second straight night.

Midwest had plenty of opportunities, they left five runners on base between the seventh and eighth innings. In the eighth the Sliders lead off with two singles to put runners on the corners with no outs. A fly out and two strikeouts later they left the bases loaded.

Lee Rubin hit a sacrifice bunt in the seventh to advance runners to second and third with one out. The next two batters couldn’t get the game tying base knock.

Kennedy’s first game with the team he scored the lone run for Midwest. He walked in the fifth and later scored on a Lee Rubin groundout.

Sliders signed two new players before the game Justin Wilson, and middle infielder Ryan Kennedy. Kennedy reached on his every bat collecting two singles, and two walks.

Thursday the Sliders will try to avoid the sweep. They’ll send Jeff Fischer to the mound to stop the current four game losing streak. The first pitch is at 7:05 p.m. at EMU’s Oestrike Stadium.
