Battle Cats Out of Time, Out of Playoffs
Saturday, August 17th, 2047
Only the most die-hard fans thought the Olympia Battle Cats still had any chance at making the playoffs this season, but now even those hopes are dashed. The team was officially eliminated from postseason contention today.

The Battle Cats have missed the playoffs 13 times in their 30 years as a Explorer League franchise. This playoff miss is the club's 10th in a row, with their last postseason appearance coming in 2036.
Destroyers End Funk's Streak
Wednesday, August 14th, 2047
Lady Luck was not on the side of Tim Funk or his teammates today at Destroyers Park.

Everything went the way of the Annapolis Destroyers, who not only came away with the 2-1 victory over Raleigh, but also held Funk hitless in 1 at-bat to put an end to his 20-game hitting streak.

"It was a good run," Funk said afterward. "It would be much easier to take right now if we had won."

This season Funk is batting .407 with 11 home runs. He has scored 44 runs and driven in 53.
20-Game Hitting Streak for Funk
Tuesday, August 13th, 2047
Tim Funk ran his hitting streak to 20 straight games today at Destroyers Park, when he collected 2 hits in 5 at-bats. The feat came, however, as the Raleigh Explorers dropped the game, 11-9, to the Annapolis Destroyers.

"Hey, the streak is great -- I hope it never ends," Funk said later. "But I'm not happy to lose the game."
Tim Funk hit an RBI double in the 1st, flied out in the 2nd, doubled in the 4th, grounded out in the 6th and flied out in the 8th.

Presently Funk is batting .408 and has collected 11 home runs, 53 RBIs, .475 OBP and scored 44 runs.
