Playoffs 2011: The Story So Far

CONCORD -- Things have been happening at a fast and furious clip in Muckraker Land, so perhaps a quick updating is in order while we all catch our breath.

Let's just say Muckraker Nation has to be very proud of its lads as they have gotten off to a sensational start in the D League Playoffs. The postseason version of the 'Rakers absorbed a two-run loss to the Water Boys in the opener, then got a break in the next round when their opponent utterly and completely failed to show, resulting in a forfeit.

The 'Rakers took advantage on Sunday, when they derailed their old D-League South buddies Trainwreck 20-12 in perhaps the Mucksters' finest all-round effort of the season.

The solid showing advances Los Muckeros in the loser's bracket, where they next play on Friday at 7:25 p.m. on Field 3 against I'd Hit That.

Should the Men of Muck prevail Friday, they would play next on Tuesday, Aug. 2 at 8:25 p.m. on Field 3.

A little background on the 'Rakers' next foe: I'd Hit That was the second-place team in Friday D-North, where it finished 8-4.

In all, it's shaping up to be quite a tournament. If you haven't caught a game yet, there's still plenty of room on the Muckrakers bandwagon. But be careful; things are moving pretty quickly these days.
