Chris Sabo and Ian Engle are two ball players who aren't too happy the travel baseball season is almost over.


They're not the only ones on the Muskegon ChannelCats 18-under team to feel that way.

Sabo, Engle and company are starting to heat up, but only three games remain on their 2009 schedule after they swept a doubleheader from the Grand Rapids Elite Black on Monday.

 Engle turned in two all-around good games and Sabo picked up the win in both of Muskegon's 14-4 and 11-9 wins at Mona Shores High School.

Indeed, all three ChannelCats teams are adjusting in the organization's first year back on the travel baseball circuit. The 18U squad is 5-7-1, Giddings' 17U team is 5-9 and the 16U club is 4-9.

Co-coach Brandon Bard said pitching has been a concern for his 18U team. Two pitchers -- Spring Lake's Chris Sabo and Oakridge's Jamie Potts have experienced sore arms and haven't had a lot of time on the mound.
