After losing the series to the Akron Racers, the Juggernauts and former Sooner catcher Heather Scaglione began play Wednesday against the New England Riptide. The last time both squads met Scaglione scored one run and collected zero hits in three at bats.
Scaglione has been invited to the National Team Camp September 6-10 at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif. She is one of 35 athletes competing to make the 17-member Pan-American Qualifier roster.
After sweeping the series with the New Enlgand Riptide, the first-place Chicago Bandits and Christina Enea remain solid. Enea had a strong showing against the Riptide in the weekend series Aug. 11-14. While she only played in three of the four games, Enea posted three hits with one RBI on nine at bats. She currently owns a .263 batting average and is ranked sixth among all Bandits in hitting percentage.
The Bandits will host the Arizona Heat this weekend in the last four-game series of regular season play.
The Arizona Heat ended the Texas Thunder and Erin Evans' 20-game winning streak last weekend. However, Evans had a strong hitting performance last weekend. She collected four hits on seven at bats in only three games.
In the final games of the regular season, the Texas Thunder will host the Akron Racers in a four-game series. The Thunder is currently in third place with a strong chance of making the playoffs.
