Chiefs 11 - Rams 7

Last night the Ipswich Chiefs beat the Rowley Rams by the score of 11-7. Rowley scored 4 runs in the bottom half of the 7th to make it 11-7. Kevin Smolla pitched really well Going 6+ innings. Brad Eaton came on to earn the save.

A win on Friday night in Hamilton would put the Chiefs at no worse than a tie for the top spot in the league. The seedings are still too close to call, a lot can still happen with only two days remaining in the regular season. The Hamilton Generals are the only lock on playoff positioning in the fourth spot, but they can play the role of spoiler and really effect the standings in their final two games.

Two wins in their final two will put the Rockport Townies atop the standings once again, but they will need an Ipswich loss for sole possession. The Mariners still aren't shut out of the top spot either, but will need some help. Check out the schedule as there a lot of great games tonight and tomorrow that will determine the playoff match ups.
