Expos manager confident heading into series against Acton Vale

After starting the regular season with four wins in their first 10 games, the Sherbrooke Expos managed to right the ship, collecting eight wins in the following nine games, and setting themselves up as one of the favourites heading into the playoffs.
Last year, the team finished with an even record for the first time in nearly a decade. This year the Expos finished with a 12 wins and 10 losses. According to Sherbrooke Manager Bruno Laurin, there was no secret recipe this summer; the team just needed time to mature.
“The rookies of last year grew up as players and they were better this year. I think our ninth hitter in his second year went for .360 or something like that,” said Laurin, sharing that the key was keeping the same core of players, while adding a few more talented pieces.
They nabbed second place in the Ligue de Baseball Majeur du Québec’s Louisville Slugger division. Sherbrooke’s offensive catalysts Ismael Pena, Kyle Hazel, Yunior Paumier, and Germin Lopez lit up opposing teams all summer, combining for 60 points scored.
