This event has slipped into a two-man race. On the shoulders of the bigger fish (4-plus pounds) Seth Feider and Jamie Hartman are starting to distance themselves a bit.
That basically means those trailing have to boat 5-pounders or better to make a run at this.
We’ve know all morning this would be how it would come down. We just weren’t sure of the horses that would be involved.
Make no mistake. It’s still anyone’s ballgame but in the 7th inning stretch it’s Feider and Hartman that can survive on hits.
The others need home runs and it’s getting late. But Dave Mercer tells me the 5s and 6s are really likely during this time of the day.
It’s just more drama and more reason to keep an eye on the game.
