Scratch­ing and claw­ing

Is­lan­ders look to squeeze across a few runs tonight against Monc­ton

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

It hasn’t been pretty this sea­son for the Char­lot­te­town Gaudet’s Auto Body Is­lan­ders.

Char­lot­te­town (3-12) sits last al­most half­way through the New Brunswick Se­nior Baseball League (NBSBL) sea­son de­spite its 3.62 team earned-run av­er­age, which is good for sec­ondbest in the league.

Runs haven’t been easy to come by for Char­lot­te­town, which has scored a league-low 27 runs (1.8 per game). The of­fen­sive woes are not un­ex­pected given the play­ers, who bat­ted in the top five spots in the lineup a year ago, have com­bined for seven plate ap­pear­ances this sea­son.

The Is­lan­ders look to get the of­fence go­ing tonight when they tan­gle with the tough Monc­ton Fisher Cats (8-8) – a team with high­est scor­ing of­fence in the cir­cuit (81).

Game time is 7:30 p.m. at Memo­rial Field.
