Rivera Blisters West Virginia
Saturday, September 8th, 2046
It was high-fives all around for Tim Rivera at Johnson & Johnson Field today.
He got them from his teammates and he got them at the plate during an outstanding hitting performance against the West Virginia Hollers. Rivera smashed 5 hits in 6 at-bats on his monster day, leading his club to a 9-8 win.
"Tim was hitting everything," said Athletics manager . "It really was a special game for him."
In the opposing dugout, Hollers manager told BNN beat writers that Rivera "ambushed" the club.
"Obviously we didn't have much success against him, but we'll have another chance," he said. "Hopefully, Rivera oversleeps next time."
Tim Rivera flied out in the 1st, singled in the 3rd, hit an RBI single in the 5th, doubled in the 7th, doubled in the 9th and doubled in the 11th.
Rivera is currently hitting at a .302 pace with 20 home runs, 63 RBIs and has scored 99 times.

Kaufman's 30-Game Hitting Streak Ends
Tuesday, September 4th, 2046
For once, it was the Colorado Bears picking up the slack for Billy Kaufman.
The club's "offensive catalyst," as Colorado manager has frequently called him, went uncharacteristically silent today and saw his 30-game hitting streak snapped by the California Mallards. Kaufman was bailed out by the rest of the Bears, however, who stopped the Mallards, 5-4.
The 34-year-old left fielder finished the day 0-for-4, and told reporters at the postgame press conference that "everybody did their job but me."
"Not that it was a huge problem -- we still won the game," he said with a grin. "The streak was a good run though. I'll try to start another one tomorrow."
Currently Kaufman has 18 home runs and a .348 batting average.
