City Series Underway in Salem Tonight
This year’s best-of-three showdown features the Lions
Cardinals and the Rotary Reds.
Cardinals Coach Marty Adams says despite these two teams
being very close in record, there are some differences.
“I think it’s going to be a battle. They [Rotary] are really
good. They’re big. They have a lot of power. We’re a little bit different than
that. We’re more of the singles, doubles type of team. They have big kids that
have the chance to hit a homerun every now and then. And that’s hard to handle,
so we have to be careful how we pitch them.”
Game One of the 2013 City Series gets underway tonight with
first pitch at 7pm. The City Series pre-game show beings at 6:50 on AM 1350 and
Games Two and Three are set for Saturday and Monday
evenings, both at 7pm.
