Onward and Upward -- and Upgrade Time.

I think we've allowed Mack to bask in the glory of his victory long enough.  It's time to get moving again.

Since we've heard no voice of dissent, we're going to be upgrading to OOTP 15 before we proceed to the next season.  Upgrading will allow us to use the new features of the upgrade, as well as help to fill our current vacancy.

Over the weekend, I will be creating a version 15 game file and posting it to the server.  When that's done, I'll put up a blog post and you'll be able to download the new version.

Any questions?  Please feel free to ask.

Seattle's On Cloud Nine

The Seattle Monarchs scored seven runs in the ninth inning to defeat the Shackamaxon Lenape and capture their ninth Cecil Cup.

Congrats to Mack on a well-played season!

We'll take a few days to allow Mack to bask in the glory of victory before we go on to the next season.

In the meantime, not hearing any voices of dissension, it looks like we're going to be upgrading to OOTP15.  I'm still looking at some stuff before making it official, but when we do, we'll give everyone some time to upgrade.

Seattle Scores Five In Seventh, Takes 2-0 Lead on Lenape

The Seattle Monarchs took Game 2 of the Cecil Cup from the Lenape with an 8-5 victory.  Seattle took a quick two run lead in the bottom of the first on a two run blast by Juan Gomez. The Lenape tied the game with a two run shot by Thomas Kalakay in the third.  Lucio Muniz put the Monarchs ahead again with a solo shot in the bottom of the inning, only to find the game tied again when Jose Molina launched a shot to right.

The score remained tied until the Seattle half of the seventh.  After Dewey Wilson grounded out, pinch hitter Ivan Castillo worked out a walk.  Lucio Muniz moved him to second with a single and after Castillo stole third, Steve Wilson was intentionally walked to load the bases.  Castillo then scored on a Juan Gomez ground out.  This was followed by a Norman Kuhn walk which brought up Jonathan Anderson.  Anderson launched a 3-1 pitch over the right field fence for a grand slam, giving Seattle a 8-3 lead.

The Lenape tried to come back in the next half inning, scoring two runs on a double, two singles and walk.  However, Miguel Martinez struck out looking to end the inning.  The Lenape were unable to score in the ninth, ending the game.

Game 3:  Monday night
