Host Blue Jays in Sunday doubleheader
AMHERST - After going one for three on the road last week, the Dooly's Coors Light Silver Bullets are hoping to get two wins at home this weekend.
Corey Blenkhorn, co-coach and player, said the team's pitching and defense continues to play well.
"Our bats kind of went cold on the weekend like they normally do against Noel Road because they have some good pitchers, but we're hoping to bounce back," he said.
The Silver Bullets will host the Noel Road Blue Jays in a doubleheader Sunday beginning at 1 p.m. at Robb's Centennial Complex.
"The home field can sometimes be good to us, so we're hoping for that," said Blenkhorn, adding the team needs to work on their offence.
The pitching decisions have yet to be made, but Blenkhorn said it could be Nick Remington and Cody Sutton taking the mound to start the games.
The Silver Bullets, who have a record of two wins and five loses so far this season, may be down one of their veteran players this weekend.
"Glenn Marks twisted his knee on the weekend, so he is questionable," said Blenkhorn.
"He's a platoon role leader playing first base and DH, but both Chris Robinson and Brian Hebert are able to fill those roles."
The Blue Jays have a five-win, three-loss record this season.
