Game 12: Fair Lawn 7 KRAKENS 4 (3-9)
This went from bad to worse as the Firehawks jumped all over Bronson Arroyo for four runs in the third. It was the now-usual suspects, a Lombardozzi walk, Reyes double, Jeter single and a Chipper Jones home run. But the Krakens wouldn't say die, particularly Miguel Cabrera who plated two with a double in the third. Coney tied the game in the fifth as Butler knocked in Encarnacion and a Parra grounder scored Butler. The Krakens kept Fair Lawn bats quiet until the eighth when Vinnie Pestano allowed an RBI double to Carlos Gomez. Things didn't get much better in the ninth when Pestano gave up back-to-back homes to Derek jeter and Carlos Gonzalez. Fair Lawn relievers struck out five of the last sixth Kraken batters to end the game. Can it get worse?
