 The "D" let the good guys down as Jimmy Jackson held some powerful bats silent through six innings of work.  Newcomer Liam Braber kept the league leaders quiet while on the hill in relief, but the five unearned runs were killers and the bats were quiet in the Comets' sixth straight loss.  On a lighter side, the Comets' kiddies came out to celebrate Fathers' Day -- see pictures below.
