BASE PATHS: Power streak something to be proud of

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — As Rebandt observed, there’s always somebody different stepping out; the eighth-hitting Crowley and, Saturday, Lang, who put up Gehrig-like numbers, 5 for 5 with two triples. Zach “Ginger Ale” Verner is taking all the fizz out of opposing bats as the closer of choice and pitchers cuffed around in one game (Blake Hohlbein for one) come back looking like Yu Darvish next time out.

Base Paths did not expect this after two one-sided losses to the experimental freshmen at Genesee. And starting last night at 5, the Power began a series of three games in 21 hours at Hornell, perhaps the best team in the league. Rebandt knows it can all change in a hurry, so his call for humility is wise. But on top of everything else, the Power has had two alumni (Rohn Pierce, Jordan Schwartz) selected in the major-league draft.

Base Paths can be proud. He’s got nothing to lose.
