Power split doubleheader with Nitros Monday

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Niagara put two men on base but left them there in the sixth inning. Then in the seventh and final inning, Scott Gillespie singled to get aboard but Rigby then hit into a double play. Tyler Simmons' grounder to second then slammed the door shut on a Niagara comeback.

Whim (0-3) took the loss for Niagara.

The Power (13-25) conclude their season Tuesday with a doubleheader against two opponents. Both games are rescheduled from previous weather-related postponements, including last Friday's damaging thunderstorm. Niagara's first opponent Tuesday is the Hornell Dodgers, beginning at 3 p.m. The Power will then conclude their season at 7 p.m. when they host the Geneva Twins.

Although the Power have nothing at stake, they could still affect how playoff-bound teams are seeded. Hornell, for example, needs a victory at Sal Maglie Stadium Tuesday to catapult into second place. 

Rebandt just wants to see his team go out on their terms, with a pair of wins.

"That would be a great way to cap it off," he said. "We've won two of our past three and if we can finish out winning four of our past five, I think that would be a real testimony that we don't cash in or quit. It shows the guys are still competing."

NOTES: Both games ended under two hours, with the second game requiring just 1:56 to complete… an apparent computer virus or hacking attack compromised the team's press box computer, rendering it unable to post the results online to the league's official web service, Pointstreak.com… How does a baseball roster that features a Christian faith-based element bond in its final week together? They go out for ice cream. Members of the Power were out Monday night at De-Dee's Dairy, where the team could relax and chat together on the eve of its season-ending doubleheader.
