The Bandits wrapped up the 2010 regular season with a 9-1 win over the De Pere RiverBandits. Miles Mayer picked up the win with seven solid innings of work. Stewart Larson was 5x5 on the evening and fell just one hit short of tying Joe Borchardt's record of hits in a game. Borchardt was 6x6 in the Bandits second game ever back in 1998. Nat Richter was 3x4 and continued hitting at his torrid pace and Sam Spurney added another pair of doubles, giving him 17 on the season. The Bandits must now wait to see if DePere can sweep Sheboygan in a DH on Friday night.
The Bandits playoff hopes are so slim, you might not even see any light. The Bandits needed Sheboygan to lose three of their four remaining games and that meant that Manitowoc, going into Wednesday night, needed DePere, who is 1-19, to beat the Sheboygan A's in two of three contests they have remaining with them this week while the Bandits must defeat DePere on Thursday night. Lo and behold, De Pere mustered a win at Sheboygan Wednesday night by a score of 9-5, giving them just their second win of the season and keeping the Bandits playoff hopes alive. The Bandits no

Menasha also fell tonight, losing to Sheboygan 14-11 and ending their season at 13-11. If the Bandits defeat De Pere on Thursday night, they would also be 13-11. T
The playoff picture remains out of focus, but got a lot dimmer, as the Menasha Macs defeated the Manitowoc Bandits by a score of 5-2 on Monday night at Menasha behind a walk-off 3 run homerun. Green Bay and Sheboygan split their Monday night doubleheader, giving Green Bay a share of the regular season crown and one of four playoff spots. The remaining three playoff spots are up for grabs between Manitowoc, Menasha, Appleton and Sheboygan. This is the final week of the regular season and the Bandits host the Legends tonight at Municipal Field at 7:30 before hostin
