Chucks begin final stretch with big series against first place Eau Claire


By Russ Owens

(WAOW)-  The Chucks are now in the final two weeks of the regular season.

Wisconsin just two and a half games back of first place Eau Claire and that's exactly who the Chucks face tonight in the first of a two game series.

The team heading to Carson Park to begin a two game set against the Express.

Wisconsin knows its crunch time and the team is focused and ready to finish things strong in an attempt to make the playoffs.

Says Manager Guido Aspeitia, "You know that's what I tell these guys, as long as we stay together, go pitch for pitch, play catch and throw strikes, I think we have a chance to be successful."

Says Catcher Pat Terry, "We definitely need to keep the momentum going that we have here, but I think we just need to keep approaching every team the same and keep doing the little things right, playing the game the right way."

Says Pitcher Don Lisi, "If we can keep this rolling, I think we're gonna have a lot of success and have a chance to make the playoffs and I think every one of us would love the opportunity to do that."
