Recaps: Perkins Returns; Namur Angels tame Merchtem Cats in Sweep

News - Belgian Baseball Leagues Comments Off on Recaps: Perkins Returns; Namur Angels tame Merchtem Cats in Sweep


by Michael Perkins, www.namur-angels.be

The Namur Angels swept the Merchtem Cats this weekend in a two game series and extended their consecutive win total to 6 games.

The Angels got help from a former star player, Henry Perkins, who is the brother of Namur catcher Mike Perkins. Henry played for the Angels during the 2009 season and led the team that year to 1st place record and playoff birth.

American born Perkins (Columbia University) was brought over by the Angels to provide some extra firepower in their push to the playoffs. The addition proved successful Saturday, when Perkins went 3-5 with 3 RBIs in Namur’s 11-1 win over the visiting Merchtem Cats.

Nico Migeot threw a great game, going 8 strong innings to record the win. He only allowed one run in the contest.

Sunday’s game was another blowout win for the Angels, as the offense carried Namur to a decisive 16-3 victory. Henry Perkins showed off his pitching skills, going 5 innings without allowing a single run.

Jerome Sana and Vincent King provided the bulk of the run support in the matchup. King had 4 RBIs in the game, while Sana recorded 3 hits at the plate.

The Angels take on the Deurne Spartans for their last two games of the season before a break in July. A win against Deurne ensures a place in the playoffs for Namur.
