The West Shore Twilight League has gotten off to a rainy start with loads of postponed and rescheduled games thanks to Mother Nature.
After three weeks, the Mechanicsburg Cardinals and Hagerstown Braves are tied for first place with identical 5-2 records. In a close race for third, Dillsburg leads with a 3-2 record, while defending champion New Cumberland is 4-3, Cumberland Valley sits at 5-4 and Enola is at 4-4.
Shippensburg and the first-year Carlisle Chargers bring up the rear with both teams struggling to score runs. Shippensburg has two wins against Carlisle, while Carlisle’s only win over Shippensburg.
Mechanicsburg has won both of their games against New Cumberland, but have only won one of three against Hagerstown. The Cardinals have a decided roster shift toward Red Land with eight players having connections to the Patriots.
Hagerstown has been to the last two finals.
Cumberland Valley, the other first-year team, has been competitive due to the solid pitching of Joey Cuomo. They also have a pitching staff with fellow Eagle grads Alec Johnston, Hunter Maguire, Austin Wacker and East Pennsboro's Chris Horst, among others.
