They were the league’s top offense, and surrendered the second least runs in the regular season. And while their season was up and down, the Senators finished the 2022 Mavericks League season on top.
The 9-2 win against the Mavericks in the championship game on Saturday, Sept. 3, capped off an amazing run through the final month of the season. The Senators went 11-3 in August, averaging more than 10 runs per game in that time, and moved from last place to first — giving them the regular season pennant and an automatic berth in Saturday’s game.
The late-season surge from the Senators just keeps going, as their win-streak has reached 11 games after a sweep of the Mavericks.
The streak is the longest for any team this season, and has catapulted the Senators into first place with just one week remaining in the regular season.
Coming into Friday’s series opener with the Campesinos, the Volcanoes offense had gone dormant, scoring just 26 runs in the seven games played in August.
But in their four games with the Campesinos this week, the Volcanoes offense which at one time led the league in scoring reawakened. They outscored the Campesinos 34-18 in the four game sweep.
The Campesinos and Mavericks split four games in their week 14 series, and find themselves both in the middle of the closely packed Mavericks League standings with two weeks to go.
The Mavericks (22-20) are just .5 games out of first. Meanwhile, the Campesinos (19-22) are just two games out, with three fewer games played than the first place Senators.
The Senators continued their late-season offensive explosion, sweeping four games from the Volcanoes — the scheduled three-game series plus a makeup game.
The wins extend the Senators (22-19) win streak to eight games and they now sit in first place with two weeks to play in the regular season.
After an extra innings loss on Friday, the Volcanoes came out on top of their three-game series with the Mavericks with wins on Saturday and Sunday.
The two wins bring the Volcanoes to .500 at 18-18, one game behind the Mavericks (20-18) for first place.
The Senators scored 43 runs in their three-game sweep of the Campesinos, a record number of runs scored without a home run hit.
