Crushers fall just short of sweep, lose 3-2 to Greys

Rein's dominant outing leads Crushers past Greys, 4-1
After Greys starting pitcher Joe Zeller struck out Craig Hertler for the first out of the game, Greys catcher Chris Kay was so excited that he accidentally spiked the ball into the ground in front of him trying to throw down to third. It was bad, just like the Greys now 18-32 record. But the Crushers did exactly what has to be done when playing against last place teams. They beat the Greys 4-1 behind a dominant starting pitching performance from Matt Rein.

Crushers put forth disappointing effort in 8-0 loss
Lake Erie put forth a disappointing effort Sunday in Traverse City, falling to the Beach Bums 8-0 on just two hits to be swept in the weekend series.
