Devastating loss for Sluggers

After New York lost in extra innings to Orlando, Baltimore beat Boston 9-4 behind Rufus Anderson to move within one game. Slugger sent their 7 foot lefthander, Jojo Lewis, to the mound hoping to keep pace, but Jojo could not get out of the second inning against Miami.

What's even worse is that the Sluggers suffered injuries to their leadoff man and second baseman Quilvio Gato, right fielder Julius Alfonzo, and catcher Willie Gomez, who was hitting .315 with 77 RBI. In addition, Rob Block, Marvin Franco, and backup second baseman Leon Davis are all hurt. The Sluggers now need a miracle to make a playoff spot.
