The Elusive Win. 7/19/13 by Brian Meyers
During a very bizarre season, two of the KWL’s All-time great pitchers struggle for victories. Throughout their careers, AJ Tate (BEL) and Brian Meyers (IND) have combined for 79 KWL wins, 1304 K’s, 64 Shutouts and 6 Cy Wiffles!

But in 2013, they’ve only been able to combine for 1 win, which Meyers just manage to secure this last Monday night in 4-2 win over the Underdogs.

Heading into week 11, AJ was 0-5 and Meyers was 0-6, despite both throwing fairly well most of the season. In Brian’s 6 losses, the Industrials have only managed to score 6 runs and it’s been even worse for Tate! The Belly Itchers have only scored 4 runs, all of which were scored in MAY!  AJ hasn’t seen a run scored in support over his last 44 innings! “Makes it kind of hard to win without any run support!” a fan stating the obvious said last Thursday night after a 16 inning marathon wrapping up AJ's 56 inning total.

Despite both Aces’ struggling for run support, both of their respective teams currently hold a slim lead on the last two wild card spots.  “I don’t like to count us out, but if we slide into the playoffs this year, I’ll be shocked!” commented Meyers after his first win of 2013. Both teams sit at 10-12 overall.

Tate finished his 2013 pitching campaign after hitting the inning limit last Thursday night after two back to back extra inning starts.  Meyers still has two starts remaining in 2013; slated to pitch week 13 and 14.
