It’s been boom or bust with the bats for the Comox Valley Cubs at the 23th annual Roy Hobbs World Series in Fort Myers, Fla.
The Cubbies dropped all four of their pool games, being outscored 45-24 in the process. And it’s been either feast or famine at the dish for the local lads. They have been shut out twice but scored in double digits in their other two games.
The Cubs completed pool play in the Legends Division on Wednesday morning with a 15-13 loss to the Kent Mudhens. They lost 12-0 Tuesday to the Washington Nationals, fell 12-11 Monday to the Orlando StoneAge and dropped their Sunday opener 6-0 to the Bergen Yankees.
Their 0-4 record left the locals near the bottom of the 39-team division standings. Tourney organizers seeded the teams for the playoffs, which run Thursday through Saturday.
On Thursday, the Cubs lost 20-18 to the Windy City White Sox.
