We got timely hitting from our order, including a very special 3 run homerun from Randon Mahurin (who is playing with a very heavy heart with the recent passing of his mother, Charity) in the 5th inning.
COACH SHELTON CONTINUED “MAHURIN’S homerun was not only special, but also broke open a close game and got the team energized, allowing us to add to our lead and finally put the game out of reach. Randon also came in and picked up the save, working the final 3 frames for us on the mound. The win puts us at 8-4 this fall.

Tuesday night in baseball brought us some more clarity to the 2020 postseason picture.
First, Jose Ramirez’s three-run, walk-off home run (CLE 5, CHW 3) clinched Cleveland’s postseason spot. Ramirez is adding to his AL MVP resume this season, and he’ll return with his ball club to the playoffs after it was eliminated from contention last year.
Then with a win over the Miami Marlins (ATL 11, MIA 1) the Atlanta Braves clinched the National League East. It’s their third straight division title.
And finally, thanks to the Washington Nationals’ doubleheader sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies, the Chicago Cubs secured their 2020 playoff berth. The Cubs will return to the playoffs after missing out on the action in October in 2019.
The Denver Nuggets picked up an impressive 114-106 Game 3 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday to cut the Lakers’ Western Conference finals lead to 2-1.

After a grueling week of play at the U.S. Open, the Payne’s Valley Cup exhibition at Tiger Woods’ new course design in Missouri — also entitled Payne’s Valley — was a nice reprieve and an enjoyable five hours from four of the best players in the world. Woods and Justin Thomas beat Europeans Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy in a faux Ryder Cup-style match that featured six holes of four-ball, six of alternate shot and seven of singles play that was capped by a closest-to-the-pin competition with two all-time greats — Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player — at the closing hole.
