Tempe Tempers @ Bethesda Bandicoots

Series Preview: Stocking itself with a bevy of players I can’t stomach, the Tempe Tempers are a team that’s easy to dislike which makes it all the more painful that they’re stinking good and coincidentally visiting Bethesda to kick our asses for six games.
Game #1: Let the ass-kicking commence!
The king of players I can’t stand, JD Martinez, comes through with his 32nd home run of the year and drives in two runs as the Tempers take it by a deceptively close score of 5-4.
Corey Kluber allowed an unforgiveable two runs which meant he got the old heave-ho after just four innings of two-hit ball (one of the hits was a Jonthan Schoop’s 9th dinger of the year for Bethesda.
Tyson Ross (8-7) pitched like a putz allowing all five Tempe runs in six innings of eight-hit ball, but at least he had control as he struck out seven and walked just one.
Weird factoid – the Bandicoots had just five hits in the game but all went for extra bases. David Peralta (18) also homered for the losers.
Maikel Franco had two doubles and a single for Tempe.
Game #2: More ass-kicking with one-dimensional Evan Gattis who can play most everywhere but nowhere well coming through with a two-run homer to pace Tempe to a 5-2 win.
Jake Arrieta (4-5) pitched like a putz as well allowing seven hits and eight fricking walks over just five innings and just like Tyson Ross before him gave up all of the Tempe runs. Jerk.
Joey Votto and Marcell Ozuna each had two hits for Tempe. Trevor Story banged his 30th homer for Bethesda … very small yay.
Golf clap to one-season wonder Miles Mikolas who improved to 11-2 with six innings of one-run ball. He gave up five hits, walking two and striking out six.
Ryan Brassiere picked up his 12th save with a scoreless 9th against the blundering Bandicoots.
Game #3: Putz-like starting pitching continues for Bethesda and this time we head to the Far East’s Hyun-Jin Ryu who coughed up five runs in four stomach-wrenching innings in an 8-4 ass-whooping by Tempe.
Ryu’s first loss of the season was helped along by some sketchy defence by Jeff McNeil’s whose screwed up double play relay resulted in two unearned runs scoring in the 3rd inning.
Ozzie Albies (12), JD Martinez (33), and Michael Brantley (15) all homered for Tempe with Albies and Martinez doing the damage off Ryu while Brantley made Jonathan Holder his bitch with a three-run pinch hit shot in the 6th.
Anthony Rendon homered (#11) and doubled to drive in three of Bethesda’s runs.
Jhoulys Chacin (8-0) got the win although was kinda shaky himself. He gave up four runs on six hits and two walks in five innings.
Game #4: Putzlike starting pitching finally came to an unlikely end with Alex Cobb on the mound but the Tempe pitching staff was stingy as hell and limited the Bandicoots offense to just three hits in a Tempers’ 3-2 win.
Tempe had only five hits themselves with no single player with more than one hit and only Xander Bogaerts had an extra base hit with a double in the only inning they scored – the 3rd. Wade Miley’s deep flyball out in the 3rd also accounted for a run as it was deep enough to bring in Marecell Ozuna from 3rd. Evan Gattis and Ozuna got the other RBIs.
Uninspiring Wade Miley (1-0) gave up two runs on three hits and four walks in five innings for the win with Jared Hughes picking up his 3rd save of the year with two innings of relief in which he struck out four.
Game #5: My apologies to Chris but Bethesda won 6-4.
Game #6: Apologies withdrawn as the Bandicoots had the shit kicked out of them 7-0.
Correction, Blue Jays reliever Ryan Tepera had the shit kicked out of him with four runs allowed in 1-1/3 innings in a Tempe 3-run 6th and two-run 7th.
Marcell Ozuna was the big kahuna on the day with his 10th homer of the year and four RBIs. Ass-pick JD Martinez (why don’t more guys throw at this guy’s head … oh yeah cuz pitchers these days are pussies) clubbed two homers and drove in the other three Tempe runs.
Corey Kluber (11-5) got the win with seven shutout innings which is OK cuz I actually like this guy which makes me wonder why he is on this team. Oh well.
Tyson Ross fell to 8-8 despite just giving up two runs and two hits over five innings.
Game #7: No game played which is a shame as I was having so much fun watching my team get its head kicked in.
Series Summary: Blechhhhhhh. A good step towards the draft lottery though.

Harsens Island  Walleye @ Triple Creek  Patriots

Series Preview: The Walleye (26-57) swim via Triple Creeks to take on the Patriots (43-41) .
Game #1: Harsen’s couldn’t get hits at the right time stranding 12 whereas the Patriots keyed up often. Piscotty and Marwin G each collect 3 RBI and even starter Newcomb got in on the action driving in 2. The Walleye outhit but fall short in the run column.

HIW 4 TCP 9

W – Newcomb (7-3)
L – Severino (7-6)

Game #2: Tied 2-2 heading into the bottom of 8 and Triple Creek busted the dam for 3. Once again Harsens collects more safeties but W’s dig runs more. Arenado went deep for HIW and Daniel Robertson delivered a big a 2-run job in the 8th off Rappin’ Rodney.

HIW 2 TCP 5

W – Jennings (3-3)
L – Rodney (2-4)
S – Soria (11)

Game #3: Arenado puts HIW on his back and brings the first W for Harsens with a 2-4 (2 HRs) 3 RBI day. Urena allowed just 2 over 6.1 and the bullpen was on lockdown.

HIW 4 TCP 2

W – Urena (5-9)
L – Gausman (4-4)
S – Anderson (2)

Game #4: What!? Both starters tossed 9 inning shutouts!! Yessir. Gio Gonzalez (4 hits) and Nick Tropeano (2 hitS) were nails all day. Soria was the goat but was also shived by a Gurriel throwing error in the 11th.

HIW 2 TCP 0

W – Springs (2-1)
L – Soria (4-5)
S – Rodney (12)

Game #5: Shane Bieber makes it back-to-back 8 inning shutouts for Triple Creek as he allows just 4 hits while striking out 9. Benintendi (3-4 w/ 2 doubles), Marwin G (2-4 2 RBI), Jonathan Villar (2-4 1 RBI) and Kelby Tomlinson (2-4 w/ triple) led the balanced Patriot attack. Bettis was solid but over shadowed today.

HIW 0 TCP 5

W – Bieber (6-3)
L – Bettis (4-7)

Game #6: Triple Creek was in control late 5-2 until Davidson took Jennings deep for a 2-run jack in the 9th. Jennings was able to right the ship and collect the save. Rodney shived Severino in the 7th or things might have worked out differently.

HIW 4 TCP 5

W – Soria (5-5)
L – Rodney (2-5)
S – Jennings (2)

Series Summary: Triple Creek takes the series 3-2 and are not one bit sad to see Arenado (9-20 w/ 3 doubles and 3 HRs) swim back upstream.

Rosemere  Renegades @ Jersey  Nor’easters

Series Preview: The Nor’easters hit the 500 make last week, can they get above it this week?
Series Summary: Yes they can! Jersey takes the series 4-2 and moves 2 games above 500 and only 2 games off the Division lead. The difference between going 3-3 as opposed to 4-2 in this series was a 12th inning grand slam homer by light hitting catcher Nick Ciuffo in the final game of the series.

Hollywood Werewolves @ Virginia Sluggers

Series Preview: Hollywood comes to Virginia hoping to gain ground on Division leader Southbend.
Game #1: HOL 10-7

Hollywood used a 6-run 4th to get in front of Virginia and they stayed there. Christian Yelich crushed a 3-run homer in that 6-run uprising and Matt Chapman added a 2-run double. Virginia tried to get back in the game on a George Springer grand slam but Hollywoods bullpen put a stop to that and Richard Rodriguez notched his 15th save.

Game #2: VIR 2-0

Clayton Kershaw and Luis Castillo hooked up in a pitcher’s duel. Surprise! Kershaw did not win. Castillo threw a CG 1-hit shutout to give the win to Virginia. Of course it helped that Castillo got a run scoring double from Whit Merrifield and a SF from Jean Segura.

Game #3: HOL 5-3

Light hitting Noel Cuevas blasted a 8th inning 2-run homer to give David Price his 6th win and Richard Rodriguez picked up save number 16. The game had been tied 2-2 thanks to Hollywood’s Ketal Marte’s 2-RBI triple and Virginia’s Rafael Devers’ 2-run homer. But Hollywood’s 3-run 8th made the difference and put HOL up 2-1 in the series.

Game #4: VIR 5-2

Virginia evened the series up at 2 all by scratching out 5 runs on 7 hits. Louis Brinson led the Sluggers with 2 hits in 4 at bats while driving in 2 runs. 1 Werewolves’ batter and 2 Sluggers’ batters were beaned in the contest. Benches emptied but no punches were thrown. Hollywood’s Hector Velazquez was ejected after hitting his 2nd batter.

Game #5: HOL 13-9

Hollywood muscled up 17 hits to pound Virginia. Paul Goldschmidt was 3-5 with a longball and 6 RBI and Ketal Marte was 4-5 with 4 runs scored and 3 RBI. Matt Olson chipped in with a 3-run Homer.

Game #6: HOL 7-6

Tied at 4-all in the 7th, Hollywood scored 3 runs to grab a 7-4 lead and then held on to get the victory and a 4-2 series win. The decisive blow came from a solo blast from Christain Vazquez. Once Hollywood had the lead, the bullpen faced 10 batters with only one of them reaching base and that was on a walk.

Series Summary: Hollywood does what Hollywood does,…they win the series 4-2.

Manhattan  Project @ Yonge Street  Stalkers

Game #1: Adam Frazier, Aaron Hicks and Eric Thames all homered in the first to put YSS up 4-0. MAN chipped away but YSS scored a timely run to extend the lead before Eric Thames swatted a solo shot in the 8th to provide the difference. YSS 6 – MAN 5
Game #2: Jace Peterson (MAN) opened up the scoring with a 3 run HR in the 3rd. Nelson Cruz and Gorkys Hernandez added HRs in the 4th and 5th and that was enough. MAN 5 – YSS 3
Game #3: The Project swatted 17 hits including 6 doubles and a homer but were kinda pummelled. The home team managed just 4 extra base hits, but those were among 16 hits of their own to go along with 6 walks. Jose Iglesias (MAN) injured 5 days. YSS 10 – MAN 5
Game #4: Manhattan followed up their 17 hit attack with 16 more in gm 4 including 7 XBH. Once again it wasn’t enough. The Stalkers only had a double and a triple, but the 10 singles lifted them to victory. YSS 11 – MAN 8
Game #5: A nice pitchers duel between T. Richards (Trevor?) and Yonny Chirinos. The game was tied at 1 until a Mitch Haniger solo shot in the 7th gave MAN a 2-1 lead. YSS tied it up in the btm of the 9th. A Gorkys Hernandez solo HR in the 10th was the quick killer. MAN 3 – YSS 2
Game #6: Aaron Hicks and Joc Pederson drove home 4 each, Jason Heyward and Mike Zunino each plated a pair. A couple others contributed as well. You get the picture. YSS 15 – MAN 5
Series Summary: Yonge Street returned the favor and took the rematch series by the same 4-2 result. Manhattan will take their surprisingly tired squad to Southbend, while YSS jumps on the road to visit Mesa.

Pittsburgh  Lumber Company @ Sacramento  Capitals

Fremont  Cannons @ Tijuana  Bottle Rockets

Series Preview: Fremont visits Tijuana for 6.

Portland  Lumber Jax @ Columbus  Explorers

Series Preview: Portland travels East to Columbus for the opening series after the All-Star Break. Columbus just spent a fortune to fix their bullpen for the remainder of the year and hopes it will pay some dividends – Jose LeClerc looks like he can be stout down the stretch,,,,
Game #1: Jose LeClerc wasn’t needed but did get some action to work off the rust. Matt Shoemaker (W 5-4)pitched a lot longer than expected because he took a no-hitter into the 8th before giving up 2 – one a solo homer to Carlos Gomez (4). But that was too little, too late for Portland as the Explorers scored 3 in the first on a Matt Carpenter blast (10). And they added 3 more along the way for a 6-1 win. Antonio Senzatela got the start and the loss (0-2).
Game #2: Portland pounds out 10 hits off Yacabonis (9 hits, L 2-2) and company, but the only scoring they had came in a 3 run 4th with Freddy Galvis, Jeff Mathis and Kyle Freeland each getting rbi singles. However, the 3 runs were enough as Freeland (W 11-4) goes 7 giving up 2 hits and 2 runs – homers to Charlie Blackmon (13) and Paul DeJong (14). However, DeJong also is involved in a collision and will miss the next 6 days! T.J. McFarland pitches the 9th, gives up a hit, but gets the save (11). Lumber Jax win 3-2.
Game #3: Explorers get another 3 run 1st and again parlay that into a big win, 7-2. Shin-Soo Choo homers (10) and gets 3 hits and 2 rbis. Ryan Zimmerman and Asdrubal Cabrera also get 2 rbis each. Carlos Gomez gets HBP and will miss 7 days. Wade LeBlanc goes 7 giving up 1 hit ans 1 run and gets the win (6-7). Ross Stripling (3-5) starts and takes the loss.
Game #4: 4 extra innings were needed to decide this one. Columbus got 2 in the 2nd – Tyler Flowers homer (8). Evan Longoria doubles in 2 in the 6th to tie. Starters German Marquez and Julio Teheran pitch well, but can’t get enough support. Lumber Jax then take the lead in the 8th. C.J. Cron walks with 1 out, steals 2nd. Goes to 3rd on a Michael Conforto bloop. Longoria steps in and flies out to Enrigue Hernandez, except that it pops out of his glove allowing Cron to score. Dee Gordon then ties it up in the 9th with his 3rd homer of the year!
Fast forward to the 13th, Victor Reyes up and he leads off with a sinlge. He then steals 2nd. And Dee Gordon then follows with what would have been an extra base hit, but Reyes scores (winning run) and Gordon settles for a single (a walk-off rbi single and his 2nd rbi of the game). Drew Steckenrider wins (2-1) in relief, Brad Peacock takes the loss (1-1).
Game #5: Tyler Mahle (W 1-2) goes 7 strong innings giving up 4 hits and a run. T.J. McFarland whiffs 2 in a perfect 9th for the save (12) and Portland eeks out a 2-1 win – all thanks to a Jose A. Martinez homer (16) in the 5th. Jordan Lyles again pitches well but doesn’t get enough help (4-4).
Game #6: Series finale goes 10 innings and the Explorers again come through in the free baseball land. And they do it by scoring runs in the 7th and 9th to come back from a 4-2 deficit and then winner in the 10th. Portland, trailing 1-0 in the 4th, explodes for 4 runs – Hernan Perez hits the biggest contributor, a 2 run double. But that was all the Lumber Jax could get (in spite of 14 hits). The 7th inning run for Columbus was a Charlie Blackmon homer (14). The 9th inning run came after Victor Reyes comes in to PR and steal a base, moves to 3rd on a ground out and scores a Dee Gordon SF. Winning run comes in the 11th when Enrique Hernandes reaches a Ross Stripling (L 3-6) throwing error. He’s bunted to 2nd. Spencer Kieboom singles, but only moves Hernandez to 3rd. Dee Gordon then hits another extra base hit that amounts to a walk-off single. Columbus wins 5-4. WP Jose LeClerc (2-1)!
Series Summary: Explorers win 4 of 6 but took lots of innings for 2 of those wins. Jose LeClerc contributes in 1st week with Columbus. Explorers stay home to host Triple Creek. Portland goes home to host Long Beach.
