Tempe Tempers @ Selkirk Steelers

Series Preview: After years of being Tempe’s punching bag Selkirk at least this time has some firepower to make it a series. Selkirk is in second place and Tempe 4th, but looking at Tempers team that seems crazy! Let’s see what 7 games says…
Game #1: Brantley 4 hits, Bogaerts 3 hits and 5 homers (Osuna, Longoria, Albies, Martinez, Freeman)! oh god, its Tempe eating our lunch again. Selkirk did get homers from Semien and Alfonso but not enough 13-3 Tempe
Game #2: Profar and Cooper homer and Matz is solid Selkirk wins 5-3
Game #3: Spangenberg homers? and Gibson goes 7.2 innings in a 5-2 Selkirk win,
Game #4: Semien and Alfonso homer and Turnbull throws a 3 hitter! Selkirk 7-0
Game #5: Max Fried the Selkirk ace has a shutout through 7 but then I left him in oops. Tempe pounds him for 5 in the 8th. Then its kill the pen until Selkirk wins 6-5 in the 15th inning,
Game #6: Sweet revenge Tempe wins 11-2 Albies and Martinez homer in the blowout
Game #7: Wauguespack was strong at Tempe wins 2-1
Series Summary: Selkirk manages to win the series 4 to 3, not sure we have even won a series vs Tempe. Looking at Tempe they are a much better team than this 13-21 and when they turn it around getting to Columbus seems tough. Selkirk is a very happy 19-14 as we try to reach .500.
Pitcher of the week: Turnbull (SEL) 3 hits 3 walks 7 strikeouts going 9 over a great lineup.
Batter of the week: Freeman (TEM) with 11 rbis

Series Summary: The Lumber Company lives up to their name, sweeping Portland on the strength of their bats: 9-4, 10-8, 11-5, 3-2, 9-3, and 2-0. When the bats slowed down, the pitching stepped it up.

Rosemere Renegades @ Triple Creek Patriots

Series Preview: Couple NL West teams play a 6 game set.
Game #1: Gausman and 4 other arms combine for a 4 hit shutout to kick the series off. Piscotty drives in the games only run in the 6th off Lauer. Lauer pitched a great 7 innings but fell short today.

RR 0 TCP 1

W – Jimenez (2)
L – Lauer (3)
S – Workman (12)

Game #2: Score tied after 5 full, 2-2. It would take 7 more innings to get a winner as both teams are tossing a ton of doughnuts in the series. Daniel Robertson is the hero today for Triple Creek with the GW single in the 12th.

RR 2 TCP 3

W – Workman (1)
L – Mella (1)
S – None

Game #3: Great game! Renegades tap Hunter Wood for 2 in the 1st and that would be all the scoring for the first 6 innings. Patriots plate 3 in the 7th off a long Gurriel bomb to take a 3-2 lead. Rosemere cobbles a small rally in the 9th to tie it up 3-3. They then add one more in the 10th to take a 4-3 lead which Mills would lock down. Tatis jacked a 2-run homer in the 1st and pinch hitter Dahl popped the game-winning solo shot in the 10th.

RR 4 TCP 3

W – Gonsolin (2)
L – McGee (1)
S – Mills (4)

Game #4: After a day off the Patriots come back very refreshed as the pound out 17 hits and score 12. Rosemere was a bit sluggish after the layoff as they could muster but 2 hits. Strahm went the distance for Triple Creek. Corey Seager enjoyed a 3-6 3 doubles game while Strahm helped himself big time going 3-3 with 4 RBIs himself. Don’t remember a game where a pitcher collected 4 RBIs before.

RR 0 TCP 12

W – Strahm (4)
L – Eickoff (2)
S – None

Game #5: Triple Creek draws first blood with 2 in the 1st and builds a 7-0 lead heading into the 7th. The shutout would end here as the Patriots would make a very costly 2 out error allowing 4 runs to score. Workman and Soria were able to hold the fort. Hidden Power Source Lucroy with a big 3-run shot in the 4th.

RR 4 TCP 7

W – Buttrey (2)
L – Kikuchi (4)
S – Soria (1)

Game #6: Nearly a carbon copy of game 5. Both teams put on their hittin’ shoes combining for 25 safeties (11 RR 14 TCP). Dahl 4-5 w/ 2 doubles led Rosemere while 4-5 Hiura w/ 2 doubles and Gurrial 3-5 led Triple Creek. After scoring 4 early, The Renegades battle back but can’t close the big gap.

RR 4 TCP 7

W – Holland (3)
L – Lauer (4)
S – Workman (13)

Series Summary: Triple Creek takes 5 of 6.

Series Summary: Long Beach won 5 of 6 and hope this is the start of their turnaround.

Jersey Nor’easters @ Corktown Cycle

Series Summary: Corktown takes the 7 game series 4-3. Jersey wins a 7 run 15th inning game. That was 7 runs scored in the 15th inning. This would have been a fun playoff series. Too bad these teams will not be seeing postseason action in 2020.

Game #1: SBL gets out to a 8-0 lead thanks to a Muncy solo-HR in the B2, an Escobar 3-run HR in the B3, and a Grand Slam by Altuve in the B6. But the Lynx bullpen gives up 4 in the T7 on a Gurriel 2-run 1b, and a Correa 2-run HR. In the T9 Osuna gives up solo-HR’s to Gurriel, Baez, and Buxton along with a McCann 2b before finally getting Astudillo to F9 to earn the save. The SBL Cave is injured for 10 days.

SBL 8, FRE 7

Game #2: SBL keeps the bats rolling as they plate 7 and they get a strong start from M.Foltynewicz. The big hits for SBL were a Mayfield 2-run HR in the B2, an Escobar 2-run HR in the B3, and a Meadows 2-run HR in the B5. FRE gets their runs a solo-HRs by Moncada in the T1 and Kepler in the T9.

SBL 7, FRE 2

Game #3: FRE turns the tables on the SBL scoring 6 runs in the first 2 innings. Doubles by Ohtani and Kepler start the scoring in the T1 followed by a 5 run 2nd inning. FRE scores 5 on a Shaw rbi-2b, Moncada 2-run 1b, and a Gurriel 2-run HR. SBL get a Martin rbi-1b in the B2 and a Canha rbi-1b in the B3 for their runs. But overall Norris was masterful as he manages to scatter 11 hits in 7.1IP of work for the win.

FRE 6, SBL 2

Game #4: By far the best game of the series! FRE gets out early in the T1 with an Ohtani 2-run HR followed by a Gurriel solo-HR off Samardzija. ALtuve hits a 2-run HR for the SBL in the B1. In the T2 a McCann 2b, a groundout, and a Shaw Sac Fly add 1 for FRE. In the T3 Gurriel hits a 2-run HR (2nd of the game) for a 6-2 FRE lead. But SBL in the B3 comes back as Escobar brings the home crowd to its feet with a Grand Slam to knot the score at 6-6. In the T4 Samardzija fans McCann and then leaves with a 6 day injury. Wladen comes on and after getting 1 out gives up a solo-HR to Shaw. No further scoring until the T8 when Hernandez hits a 2-run HR for a 9-6 FRE lead. SBL gets one back with a Escobar solo-HR in the B8. In the B9 FRE goes to Doolittle to close the game and SBL pull within 1 with back-to-back 2b’s by Forsythe and Joyce; Altuve infield 1b puts runners at the corners, and then Meadows wins it for the SBL with a walk-off 2-run 3b!SBL 10, FRE 9
Game #5: FRE opens the scoring in the T2 on a McCann 2-run HR. In the B2 after Escobar’s 2b’s, he scores on a Shaw error on Cordell’s grounder. In the B3 Canha gets SBL the lead with a 2-run HR. In the T5 Moncada hits a 2-run HR for a 4-3 FRE lead. That’s how it would end as Duffy locks in and Greene comes on for a 2 inning save.

FRE 4, SBL 3

Game #6: SBL Canha stays hot and starts the scoring in the B2 with a solo-HR. FRE takes the lead on a Kepler 2-run HR in the T3, but that’s all they would get as Yamamoto, Moronta, Duffey, and Osuna shut down the FRE offense the rest of the way. In the B6 Altuve ties the game with a solo-HR and Canha puts SBL ahead with 2-run HR (his 2nd of the game).

SBL 4, FRE 2

Series Summary: The Southbend Lynx take the series over Fremont 4-2 in a series with lots of HR’s.
