Valdosta  Snappers @ Portland  Lumber Jax

Series Preview: Valdosta Snappers (24-35) visit the Portland LumberJax (31-27)
Game #1: Portland’s Zack Eflin pitches a complete game shutout giving up just 4 hits.
POR 3 VAL 0
Game #2: Game is called from rain in the between the 4th and 5th innings… robbing the Sanppers of a win as they were leading 5-1 at the time.
Game #3: Snappers win the game, but lose Suzuki who is injured for 10 days.
VAL 5 POR 2
Game #4: Snappers win a close one.
VAL 6 POR 4
Game #5: Portland gets the win.
POR 8 VAL 5
Game #6: Jose Martinez comes up in the first inning with bases loaded for Portland… hitting .375 with .450 OBP, but… hits into a double play. Portland still gets two runs out of the inning. It wouldn’t be enough though, and a late game surge gets the Snappers the win.
VAL 5 POR 4
Game #7: Believe it or not… with Valdosta leading 1-0 in the bottom of the night, I was distracted (working from home on laptop) and I failed to PH for Brad Peacock. =( NOOOOO!!! And he hits a homerun! YESSS!!!! Now how that happens when he didn’t get a hit, let alone a XBH last year… I haven’t a clue. Actually… I see he has a different hitting card than on the real cards, and there is two 1’s in the second column. Go figure.
One to one going into extras and only 10 hits between both teams… this could be a long one.
But alas, Tyler Austin pinch hits for… ahem.. Peacock in the bottom of the 11th… and hits a HR to win game.
POR 2 VAL 1
Series Summary: It is a split as Portland sees it wild card chances slipping away.

Columbus  Explorers @ Bethesda  Bandicoots

Series Preview: Second-place Columbus (39-19) comes in to give Bethesda (27-30) a pounding out east.
Game #1: Not much pounding in this low-scoring affair as the two teams combined for just 10 hits.

Columbus struck first with a run in the 1st inning when Dee Gordon singled and scored 2nd base (a shocker, I know) and then scored easily on Matt Carpenter’s double into the right field alley.

The Bandicoots tied it up and then added a run in the bottom of the first frame when Nick Mancini ripped a pitch from Julio Teheran over the first base bag and into the right field corner which allowed David Peralta and Trevor Story to score easily.

Fast forward to the 7th inning and former Washington National “great” Ian Desmond plops one over Lorenzo Cain’s head to dead centre and winds up with a stand up triple. Desmond was not on 3rd long though as the next hitter – Shin Soo Choo – lined John Gant’s pitch over 2nd baseman Jeff McNeil and into right field to tie it up.

Teheran hung one to Cain in the bottom of the 7th and the Brewers’ outfielder absolutely crushed the ball for his 1st homer of the season which put the Bandicoots ahead 3-2.

Steve Cishek mowed down the Exploreres in the 8th inning but going for the 2-inning save was not in the cards as he could only get one out in the 9th and then gave up singles to Eduardo Nunez and Matt Carpenter to give the Explorers runners on 1st and 3rd with just one out. Cishek handed the ball to Brandon Morrow who had not pitched since the Godfather was in theatres. Morrow fanned Enrique Hernandez (the super utilityman’s 4th of the game) and then got pinch hitter Brock Holt to pop out to Matt Adams at 1st base to end it.

COL 2 – 7 – 0 L-Teheran (5-4) HR-none
BET 3 – 3 – 0 W-Gant (2-0) Sv-Morrow (7) HR-Cain (1)

Game #2: A much closer game than the game suggested as Bethesda starter Tyson Ross gave up two runs in the opening inning, but then slammed the door on the Columbus hitters while Bethesda counted three runs in the 3rd and added two insurance runs in the 8th to come away with a 5-2 win.

Charlie Blackmon, the 2018 runner up for the league’s worst facial hair, had a double and a triple for Columbus as well as a walk with a run scored and one driven in. Enrique Hernandez also had a strong game in a losing effort with a couple of singles and drove in his 30th run of the year.

The resurgent Jordan Lyles gave up three runs on five hits and kept the game close before Tony Watson’s brain fart (arm fart?) in the 8th enabled the ‘Coots to add a couple of more runs.

David Peralta led the Bandicoot attack with a triple and a home run and four runs driven in to give him 43 on the year.

COL 2 – 5 – 0 L-Lyles (2-2) HR-none
BET 5 – 7 – 1 W-Ross (5-6) Sv-Thornburg (2) HR-Peralta (14)

Game #3: Columbus decided enough was enough and so spoiled a perfectly nice close 3-3 tie in the 9th inning by scoring four times of Yoshihisa Hirano and Steve Cishek as they sauntered to a 7-3 win.

With Hirano leaving with one out and Dee Gordon on 2nd base, Cishek was brought in and got Shin Soo Choo to ground out and move Gordon along to 3rd. With the infield in then, Charlie Blackmon blooped the ball over the drawn-in infield which gave the Explorers the 4-3 lead. Cishek then walked Matt Carpenter and then hung one “right good” to Enrique Hernandez who deposited the ball in the cheap seats to put the final nails in the coffin.

The Columbus track team continued to rob the Bethesda catchers blind with both Victor Reyes (3) and Ian Desmond (13) stealing bases.

COL 7 – 11 – 0 W-Robertson (2-1) Sv-Watson (3) HR-Zimmerman (3), E.Hernandez (7)
BET 3 – 7 – 0 L-Hirano (2-2) HR-Cain (2)

Game #4: Sonny Gray’s brilliant outing turned very Lusitania-like in the 6th inning as the Columbus Explorers scored five times off him and Ryan Tepera to grab a 6-3 win.

Columbus managed just six hits in the contest but nicely concentrated them in the 6th inning to get the win. JA Happ started for Columbus and while he did give up three runs he also killed several rallies with one of his 10 strikeouts of the day.

Enrique Hernandez continued to produce for Columbus with a couple of RBIs and Spencer Kieboom’s bafflingly good hitting (.320 average after the game) also accounted for a couple of runs.

Trevor Story and AJ Ellis each had two hits for Bethesda.

COL 6 – 6 – 0 W-Happ (9-2) Sv-Petit (5) HR-none
BET 3 – 9 – 0 L-Gray (2-6) HR-Story (24)

Game #5: The Columbus Explorers saved the best for last once again, scoring three times off Tyler Thornburg in the top of the 9th inning unfortunately for them if Thornburg is pitching it means the Bandicoots have a substantial lead and in this case when someone who did not suck came in to save the day Bethesda escaped with a 5-3 win.

Bethesda starter Alex Cobb spun five shutout innings of two-hit ball to lower his ERA to a baffling 3.78 and none of the other three pitchers aside from Thornburg gave up a hit. In all fairness to Tyler all of the runs came courtesy of an Asdrubal Cabrera pop fly that just kept carrying and carrying to bring in all three runs.

Alen Hanson and Anthony REndon each drove in two runs for Bethesda while soon-to-be retired AJ Ellis had another two-hit game.

COL 3 – 5 – 1 L-LeBlanc (4-6) HR-Cabrera (11)
BET 5 – 6 – 0 W-Cobb (3-7) Sv-Cishek (3) HR-Rendon (10)

Game #6: Ryan O’Hearn touched off a grand slam in the 6th inning off Glenn Sparkman and Sparkman combined with starter Julio Teheran to issue three walks with the bases loaded as the Bandicoots beat the stuffing out of Columbus 15-1.

Teheran lasted all of 2-2/3 innings and in that time gave up six runs on four hits and three walks (one with the bases loaded), but the real damage came against Sparkman in the 6th inning when the Bandicoots scored nine runs (two on bases loaded walks) while the Columbus manager watched and told him the “suck it up”.

Columbus didn’t waste any offense in the game mustering all of one hits against Hyun-Jin Ryu and company – a single by Shin-Soo Choo in the 2nd inning that drove in Enrique Hernandez and temporarily gave the visitors a 1-0 lead before all hell broke loose.

Nick Martini and O’Hearn each drove in four runs for Bethesda with Matt Adams, Ryu and David Peralta getting the bases loaded walk RBIs. The Bandicoots only needed nine hits in the game to do all of their damage but walked eight times. Lorenzo Cain also had a nice day with a couple of hits including a home run and drove in three.

COL 1 – 1 – 1 L-Teheran (5-5) HR-none
BET 15 – 9 – 0 W-Ryu (4-0) HR-Cain (3), O’Hearn (7)

Game #7: Not enough offense? Hell no …

In this pitcher thumpathon the Columbus Explorers mangled Bethesda pitching for 10 runs, but it paled in comparison to the Bandicoot’s berserk batting as they scored 14 times in the 2nd inning as part of an NFL-like 22-10 win.

The damages started up against Jordan Lyles who left with runners on 2nd and 3rd and two outs with six runs already in on him in the inning. Unlucky inheritor reliever Tyle Olson then watched as Dee Gordon mishandled what should have been the inning-ending groundout by AJ Ellis which brought up starting pitcher John Gant with the bases jammed. KA – POW … way way over the left field wall for his first of the season and the floodgates were not only opened but being washed away in the flood. The Bandicoots scored seven runs off Olsen – all unearned – which included him giving up a follow-up homer to DAvid Peralta with Anthony Rendon and Nick Martini aboard. Olson’s line … 0.0 IP, 6 H, 2 HR, 7 R, 0 ER, 2 BB.

The Explorers did not give up though. they had already scored three runs in the first inning thanks to Asdrubal Cabrera’s long ball and then added another three in the 3rd on a bases clearing double by Matt Carpenter which made it 15-6 after three.

Enter reliever Mike Magill … exit Magill without his head as the Bandicoots thrashed him for seven runs in the 4th inning including another grand slam – this one by Matt Adams. Bethesda ran out of gas at this point, but the Explorers added two in the 8th and two in the 9th after Sonny (Where’s My Damned Mop) Gray. sadly the Explorers also of course lost a player – Paul DeJong – for 10 days in a game like this.

Peralta and Adams each had four hits in the game, Nick Martini, Lorenzo Cain and Jeff McNeil had three with poor Anthony Rendon getting just two but scored four times. In another “something ain’t right in the universe” moment in this game Tyler Thornburg threw three perfect innings of relief for Bethesda.

COL 10 – 8 – 2 L-Lyles (2-3) HR-Holt (4), Cabrera (12)
BET 22 – 23 – 0 W-Thornburg (1-0) Sv-Gray (1) HR-Peralta (15), Adams (7), Gant (1)

Series Summary: The first four games were tight with a split between Columbus and Bethesda, but the Bandicoots offense churned out a couple of serieses worth of offense in the last two games to come away with 5 of 7 wins against the Explorers.

Mesa  Solar Sox @ Motor City  Muscle

Series Preview: Mesa @ Motor City for 6 games, with an off day between Games 3 and 4
Game #1: MCM 11 – MSS 0

WP: de Grom (CG)
LP: Aaron Sanchez

HR: MCM–Kinsler (GS), S. Perez, Y. Alonso

MCM announced their presence with authority by putting up five runs in the first, including Ian Kinsler’s grand slam. de Grom cruised, striking out eight. Kinsler also had two doubles in the game.

Game #2: MCM 7 – MSS 5

WP: R. Hill
LP: I. Kennedy
SV: Nuno

HR: MSS–Aguilar (2), Pearce; MCM–Granderson, D. Fowler, Y. Alonso, J. Hicks

MCM’s four homers trump Jesus Aguilar’s two. Everyone in the MCM lineup had at least one hit, but Yonder Alonso did the most damage, with three RBI.

Game #3: MSS 7 – MCM 1

WP: Heaney
LP: Davies

HR: MSS–T. Anderson

Andrew Heaney dominated, striking out 11 and allowing no earned runs in eight innings of work. Tim Anderson put a hurting on his old mates, going 3-3, with a homer, three runs scored and two RBI.

Game #4: MCM 9 – MSS 3

WP: Verlander
LP: Bauer
SV: Vizcaino

HR: MSS–Aguilar, Suarez; MCM–S. Perez

We didn’t get the expected pitcher’s duel from this matchup, although both starters pitched into the 8th inning. It was actually a one-run game until MCM put up a five-spot in the 8th on some shoddy MSS defense. Of the six runs given up by Trevor Bauer, only two were earned. The bottom third of the MCM order had six hits, six RBI, and five runs scored.

Game #5: MCM 2 – MSS 1

WP: Hendricks
LP: Paxton
SV: Vizcaino

HR: none

The pitchers duel materializes. Neither starters’ numbers are eye-popping for this one, they both just got the outs when they needed them. David Freese had both RBI for the Muscle.

Game #6: MSS 4 – MCM 3 (10 inn.)

WP: Jeffress
LP: de Grom

HR: MSS–Grichuk

Jacob de Grom struck out 15, but watched as the 10th inning lead-off single he allowed eventually came around to score off Vidal Nuno. Randal Grichuk’s three-run HR in the 6th gave MSS a lead that they gave up in the bottom of the inning to set up the extra-inning drama.

Series Summary: MCM takes the series 4 games to 2

MCM hit 8 HRs in the series, with Sal Perez and Yonder Alonso getting two each; MSS had 7 HRs, three of them by Jesus Aguilar.

In two starts, Jacob de Grom went 1-1, pitched 18.1 innings, struck out 23, gave up 7 hits, and 4 ER.

New acquisition Alrodys Vizcaino paid immediate dividends with 2 saves for MCM

Coconut Creek  Crushers @ Virginia  Sluggers

Series Preview: The two bottom dwellers in the AL West get together.
Game #1: VIR 8-5 W-Luis Perdomo (6-3) L-Stephen Gonsalves (0-1) SV-Jace Fry (4)

Virginia scores in the first six innings and holds on for the win. Anthony Rizzo singles, doubles, and homers in a 3-4 day. Six different Sluggers rack up RBI’s as they totaled 12 hits. Daniel Palka hit his 5th dinger for the Crushers.

Game #2: CCC 3-0 W-Blake Snell (4-4) L-Chris Archer (4-4)

A pitchers duel. CCC’s Blake Snell went 9 innings facing 31 batters, gave up 2 hits, no runs, and K’d 10. Chris Archer was almost as good,…but not quite. Archer also went 9 innings facing 32 batters, but gave up 5 hits. He did strike out 19 batters. And he did give up Daniel Palka’s 6th homer,…a 3-run run blast in the top of the 9th. That was the game winner.

Game #3: VIR 13-4 W-Trevor Cahill (3-3) L-Joe Musgrove (4-2)

Virginia pitchers allowed only 4 hits in 9 innings while Virginia batters punched out 14 hits,…good for 13 runs. Mookie Betts and Wil Myers went deep for CCC and Anthony Rizzo, Carlos Santana, and Jorge Bonifacio for VIR.

Game #4: CCC 9-6 W-Stephen Gonsalves (1-1) L-Ryan Borucki (0-5) SV-Trevor May (1)

VIR exploded for 6 runs in the 5th when Brian Anderson laced a bases clearing triple. This gave VIR a nice 6-2 lead. However, CCC came back with 3 in the 6th and 4 in the 7th and the bullpen pitched a perfect 8th and 9th to preserve the win for the Crushers. Big blows for the Crushers came from Mookie Betts’ 2-run double and Brandon Drury’s 2-run single.

Game #5: CCC 6-4 W-Zack Godley (3-7) L-Trevor Williams (5-6) SV- Ken Giles (2)

Daniel Palka sparked a 5 run 3rd by crushing his 7th homer (3rd of the series) with 2 runners on and Jett Bandy followed 2 batters later by hitting his 6th homer of the year. VIR tried for the comeback when Lewis Brinson jacked a 3-run shot into the bleachers in the 6th to bring VIR within 2, but the CCC pen did it again and shut down the Sluggers for the next 3 innings.

Game #6: VIR 6-5 W-Heath Fillmyer (1-0) L-Trevor Hildenberger (1-2) SV-Felipe Vazquez (9)

VIR outhit CCC 16-7, but only won by a run…go figure. Oh wait,…14 of the hits were singles. CCC, on the otherhand, had 4 extrabase hits out of their 7 and 2 of them were longballs. Both Mookie Betts and Daniel Palka (his 8th of year , 4th of series) put the ball over the wall. VIR was just fortunate enough to score one more run than CCC.

Game #7: CCC 7-5 W-Blake Snell (5-4) L-Luis Perdomo (6-4) SV-Trevor May (2)

Blake Snell watched his ERA inch up over 3 as he gave up a solo homer to Jean Segura and a 3-run shot to Rafael Devers. Fortunately for Snell he had an ace in the hole. His name is Daniel Palka. Palka gave CCC the series win by blasting his 5th homer of the series in a 3-5 day and accounted for 5 RBI. Brandon Nimmo and Mookie Betts accounted for the other 2 RBI and together, all three of them collected 8 0f the 13 hits.

Series Summary: Coconut Creek takes the series 4-3.
Two Crushers had a great series: Mookie Betts was 10-20 (.500 BA) with 6 runs scored and 7 RBI.
DANIEL PALKA was 10-26 (.385 BA) with 5 runs scored and 18 RBI and 5 HR.
Palka was the difference in this series.

SBL 5, DET 4

Game #3: This game is all DET M.Minor as he throws 7.1 IP giving up only 4 hits and 1 run.
