Game of the DayVermont vs. Auburn – Two first place teams lock up for three games at Centennial Field when the Lake Monsters welcome Pinckney Division leaders Auburn to town. The Doubledays (30-21) are currently hemmed up with Mahoning Valley atop their division, with both teams sporting identical records. The Lake Monsters (25-25) are trying to keep their heads above .500, but thankfully they have a cushion of 3 games over Connecticut in the Stedler. Expect ample runs to be scored tonight as both teams throw starters with ERAs north of 5 to the hill. The Doubledays have Christian Meza going in his seventh start of the season. Meza has allowed 22 earned runs in 25 2/3 innings. Tonight’s start will be Meza’s first on the road this year. Lake Monsters’ starter J.C. Menna started the season 2-0 but has since dropped four games over his last six starts and hasn’t won since June 30th. Menna has walked 17 batters over his last 20 2/3 innings. This series should be a nice test for the Lake Monsters who want to prove their playoff mettle despite their mediocre record…Vermont SS Chih Fang Pan and C Nick Rickles both currently have seven game hit streaks going…Auburn has scored 284 runs and their team OPS is .746, both tops in the NYPL.
