Sacramento has wonderful pitching and of course Lindor and Stanton, Selkirk is not a .500 team should be throwing in the towel but they are a young team with dreams and hopes, Torres, Hoskins, Profar, Winker and a staff of young talent and old work worhorses showing the kids the right way like Shields. The question in Vegas was 5 or 6 Sacramento wins. The moto of the Steelers fans was “I hate Sacramento” !

W-Shields (9-13) Glasnow (8-6)

L – Jennings (4-7)
S – Colome (3)

VS 6 TCP 5

W – Zimmerman (7-11)
L – Workman (3-6)
S – Rogers (7)

Game #3: Brandon McCarthy is mugged for 9 hits over 4 innings and the Patriots take a big 5-0 lead early. Jacob Nix pitches a solid game allowing just 3 runs over 6 full. 5-3 heading into the 7th, this game will be decided by the pens again. Renfroe drills a 2-run bomb in the 7th and Sano a 2-run job in the 8th and Valdosta scores 2 runs in each of the 6th, 7th ans 8th, to take a 7-5 lead into the bottom of the 9th. Rogers is on to lock things down but Triple Creek has other plans as they hang a 3-spot and walk off on a Rene Rivera Triple.

Teams combine for 30 hits!

VS 7 TCP 8

W – Jennings (5-7)
L – Rogers (2-3)

Game #4: Back to back 1 run games and this one will take extras. Valdosta scores 2 in the 1st and 1 in the 7th for a 3-0 lead. Zimmerman is tossing a great game is lifted after 8 full with the score now 3-2. Colome on in the 9th struggles allows Bellinger to take him deep to tie it up 3-3. Workman handles the 10th for Triple Creek but Minter cannot do the same for Valdosta as Lourdes Gurriel walks it off with a solo shot, back to back walk offs for the Patriots!

VS 3 TCP 4

W – Workman (4-6)
L – Minter (3-3)

Game #5: The series has been tight, like these teams are playing for something other than early tee times in a few weeks. Series at 2-2, Tseng takes on Bieber, and it’s another tight one. No score after 3 full and Snappers score 2 in the 4th. Triple Creek responds with 1 in the 4th, 2-1. Tseng allows back-to-back homers in the 5th to Piscotty and Rivera, 2-4 Patriots. Triple Creek pen toss doughnuts in innings 6-7-8, and Jennings takes the 9th with a 3 run lead, which is barely enough as he allows 2. Triple Creek takes the series lead 3-2.

VS 4 TCP 5

W – Bieber (9-5)
L – Tsenf (3-9)
S – Jennings (3)

Game #6: Hammel was brilliant in a complete game 5 hit 11 strike out effort. Altherr comes up big with 2 doubles that both drive in runs. Hammel would go both ways today as he collect 2 hits and an RBI.

VS 3 TCP 0

W – Hammel (8-14)
L – Gausman (6-10)

Series Summary: Series is split 3-3. Snappers outscore the Patriots 27 to 24 in a fun back and forth series.

Game #1: VA out early on a Rizzo rb-groundout int he T1. SBL ties it in the B3 on an Altuve solo-HR. In the T5 Bradley hits a solo-HR and Merrifield’s rbi-1b give VA a 3-1 lead. SBL Muncy hits a solo-HR in the B6, his 44th, to cut the lead in half. VA Rizzo rbi-1b in the T7 gets the run back and C.Gallagher’s 2-run 3b in the T8 extends the lead. SBL Cave rips a 2-rbi 2b with the bases loaded to make it 6-4 VA. BUt VA Bracho would come on and after walking Canha would get a fly out and K Maxwell to end the threat. Bracho would get 1 more out before giving the ball to Vazquez for his 27th save as VA takes the first game. T.Williams witht he win.

VIR6, SBL 4

Game #2: VIR Merrifield opens the game with a lead-off solo-HR in the T1. SBL ties it on an Escobar rbi-1b in the B1. VA Devers hits a 2-run HR in the T4. But the SBL come back in the B5 when Altuve 2bs, Lowrie rbi-1b, and Muncy hits a 2-run HR for a 4-3 SBL lead. In the B6 Escobar adds another rbi-1b for a 5-3 SBL lead. SBL Holland setled down after the 4th and tosses 3 scoreless innings. VA adds a run in the T9 when Anderson 2bs and scores on a Santana rbi-1b off Moronta. But Osuna comes on and gets the last 2 out for his 43rd save. Holland gets the win.

SBL 5, VIR 4

Game #3: Not much to say about this one other than VIR roughs up SBL ace Foltynewicz as they score 5 runs (4 earned) off him. VA Rizzon started the scoring with a solo-HR in the T1. VIR blows the game open with 5 runs in the T5 with the big hit being a Bradley 2-rbi 2b. Castro has a 2-run 3b in the T7 for VIR. Escobar hits his 44th HR in a losing cause for the SBL. Archer gets the win for VIR.

VIR 10, SBL 4

Game #4: SBL return the favor with their own blowout as they score 9 runs on 14 hits. VIR Cahill is the vistim as he gives up 7 runs in 6.2 IP. In the B1 SBL get a Muncy rbi-2b, an Escobat rbi-1b, and a Cave 2-run HR for all the runs they would need. SBL Muncy adds HR#46 later in the game. Moya is strong on the hill as he gives up only 2 runs in 6.2 IP while fanning 5. VIR lone bright spot is Springer’s 23rd HR of the season. Moya gets the win.

SBL 9, VIR 2

Game #5: The SBL normally solid bullpen falls apart in this one. After the SBL retook the lead 6-4 in the B4, Miller implodes giving up 2 runs, followed by Bradley giving up 2 runs, then Familia giving up a run the T5 and T6. VA ends up with 11 runs on 16 hits.

VIR 11, SBL 7

Game #6: Another poor performance from a normally solid SBL pitcher as E. Jackson gives up 7 runs in 8.1 IP. VA got out in front in the T2 when Markakis bbs, Rondon 2bs, Anderson Sac fly, Santana bbs, CAstro 2-rbi 2b, and a Merrifield rbi-2b. Thats pretty much all she wrote as VIR Borucki is dominant on the mound giving up only 2 runs on 6 hits through 8.1 IP for the win. SBL Escobar adds 2 more rbi in the game to bring him to 160 on the season.

VIR 8, SBL 2

Series Summary: VA takes the series 4-2 and keeps their playoff hopes alive. SBL see their chance to clinch the AL West go by the wayside setting up the big series against Hollywood next week. SBL needs to win 1 game over Hollywood to secure the AL West next week and a strong series to have a chance at the overall best record in the AL.

Pittsburgh  Lumber Company @ Tempe  Tempers

Series Preview: The best in the NL East visits the best in the NL Central.
