Notes: If the first two games are any indication, this series is going to feature some fantastic pitching performances. Over the first 2 games of the series, the Missions and the Travelers have combined for 2 runs as they’ve each enjoyed 1-0 victories. The Missions were held to just 4 hits tonight; Eddie Bonine pitched his heart out, but he was the hard luck loser in tonight’s contest.
