We have 3 big games vs Lafayette starting with a dh on Easter Sunday because of today’s rain - 3rd game Monday afternoon - the ‘parks are improved and will be competing with HC and Lehigh for the final 2 playoff spots (navy and army are secure)
Current standings below. A little tough to declare Army in the same boat as Navy at this point. Navy is definitely in and Bucknell is definitely out. 9-11 games left for the other 4 teams (they each play 25) with 3 games separating them in the standings.
Army 10-6 Holy Cross 8-6 (1 GB of Army for 2nd) Lafayette 7-7 (2 GB of Army for 2nd) Lehigh 7-9 (3 GB of Army for 2nd)

Tomorrow’s game is looking very important - lehigh swept bucknell this weekend and are 8-9 in the PL - we could use some breathing room from them and Lafayette going into the 4 games this coming weekend vs. army which just won 2 of 3 at navy and took the season series from the mids
Volpi is 3-4, 2 runs scored, a double and a homer, 4 RBIs After a very slow start to the season and a benching, he has been very good recently Dvorak threw 6, 1 Earned run, 2 hits, 3 BBs, 10 Ks.—sounds like a PoW

The wet weather held off. The 5-1 win took almost 3 1/2 hours, coming from down 1-0 with the help of a 4 hitter. Each team left 10 runners on base. HC is now 10-7 in the PL / Lafayette is 8-9. HC is third in the PL and has the edge on L in head-to head play.
HC has Hartford is next on Wednesday at home at 5:00 pm.

Maybe it's why Tampa Bay has openers instead of starters. Maybe the best arrangement would be to have the Ace pitch the first three, move to DH and then pitch the last three if needed. Start again on 2-3 days rest if not needed for innings 7,8,9.
