Flying Dogs End Slide, Win Big

The Flying Dogs ended their offensive struggles on Sunday with their best offensive effort of the year. Scoring a combined 35 runs in Sunday’s double header the Dogs improved their record to an even .500 at 5-5. Jon DuBay led the teams hitting attack with 2 homeruns, including a mammoth blast in game 1 estimated at over 400 ft, some say that the ball is yet to land and may have entered the earths orbit. Joining him in the homerun club were Chris Staub and Malcolm Smith.

In his second game of the season Brian Moore pitched the complete game, shortened to 5 innings due to the mercy rule, racking up 10 K’s and allowing only 1 run. Moore’s record improved to 2-0 with the win. In game 2 Rob Stup and Tony Garza flirted with a combined no-hitter allowing only 1 hit in the first inning.  Stup picked up the win throwing 4 strong innings and allowing only 2 runs, Garza threw the final frame.

Next Game: Wednesday 5/24 6:00pm at FSK High School

Flying Dogs Losing Streak Now at 4

The former Cardinals remain 0 for Flying Dogs after last nights loss to the Sykesville Bulldogs.  Last nights 4-3 loss marked the 4th consecutive loss for the Flying Dogs and the 3rd consecutive 1-run loss.  With the bases loaded and 1 out in the top of the 7th, rookie Brian Peterson smashed a line drive, but right at Bulldog third baseman Price.  After the first 2 batters of the inning reached base the Flying Dogs where unable to capitalize on their advantage.

Tony Garza made his first start of the season going 5 innings and allowing only 3 runs.  Rob Stup threw the final frame allowing only 1 unearned run on a defensive miscue.

Next game: Tuesday 5/16 at 6:00pm in Westminster at Landon Burns Park.

Flying Dogs Welcome Back Dave Brumley

At the end of last season, the team said farewell to their shortstop of the past 2 seasons.  After moving to Perry Hall at the end of the summer Brumley announced it was his final season with the Cardinals and found a club closer to home in the Midtown Panthers of the BBL.  Less than one month into the 2006 season Brumley decided that while he lived far away in Perry Hall, his home was with the Frederick Flying Dogs. 

Brumley will provide depth in the middle infield and round out a bullpen that has been stellar in the few innings it has been used this season.  The bullpen consists mainly of position players including Rob Stup, Tony Garza, and now Dave Brumley.

Brumley will be back with the team starting with tonights 7:00pm game at Freedom Park vs. newcomers the Sykesville Bulldogs.
