Welcome back, baseball fans! Week 7 of the KCL Baseball League has come to a thrilling conclusion, with 3 games played by each team. The Ground Sloths emerged as the dominant force, sweeping the week with a perfect 3-0 record and an impressive +19 run differential.

With just 2 games remaining for each team, the Ground Sloths and the Merchants have solidified their positions as the top 2 seeds in the league. Even if the Ground Sloths were to lose both of their remaining games and the Merchants were to win theirs, the Ground Sloths would likely maintain their hold on the 1st-place position due to their superior run differential.

On the other end of the spectrum, the Blue Caps and the Bobcats find themselves as the bottom 2 seeds. These 2 teams will be fighting for 3rd place with the same record and similar run differentials. However, since last week, the Bobcats managed to surpass the Blue Caps in the standings, thanks to their better run differential.

Looking ahead to the remaining games, we have some exciting matchups in store. The Ground Sloths will face off against the Bobcats and then take on the formidable Merchants. The Merchants, in turn, will go head-to-head with the Blue Caps before their crucial clash against the Ground Sloths. The Bobcats have a challenging task ahead as they prepare to play against the league leaders and then take on the Blue Caps, who will also be looking to end the season on a high note.

In recognition of their outstanding performances this week, we congratulate Luke Stulga from the Ground Sloths, who had an incredible week at the plate. Stulga went 6-for-11 with 1 double, 1 triple, 6 RBIs, and 3 runs scored. Additionally, we applaud Ben Plumley, also from the Ground Sloths, for his exceptional pitching display. Plumley pitched a complete game, allowing 0 earned runs, 3 hits, and no walks while striking out 6 batters in 5 innings

As the regular season draws to a close, the stakes are higher than ever. Stay tuned for more thrilling baseball action as the teams fight for their playoff positions on July 12th and 13th, as playoffs take place on the 14th and 15th.
