Game 1; Snell vs Darvish; Lymebees score unearned run in first, 2 more in 3rd on a Hosmer triple and 4 runs in 4th with Olson hitting a run HR, Plague get 2 runs in 5th and 1 more in 6th but Bees would get 2 run triple by Puig and a 2 run HR by Zunino in 7th to end scoring for a 11-3 Lymebees win.
Game 2; Fulmer vs Nola; This is more of a normal game vs Plague; Plague score unearned run in 1st and Lemahieu doubles in a run in 2nd, Bees get solo HR by Chapman in 3rd and tie game in 5th, Plague get the lead back in bottom of 5th, Bees tie game in 6th and game is scoreless into bottom of 10th and with 2 outs the third batter of inning Moustakis hits a walk off HR for 4-3 Plague win.
Game 3; Gray vs Duffy; Bees start off with 3 runs in first with Cozart hitting a 2 run shot, Plague come back in bottom of 1st with a Moustakis 2 run single and in the 6th Plague get 3 runs on doubles by Kepler, LeMahieu and Hamilton, Bees come back with a Braun run scoring double followed by a Gonzalez HR and with one out in 9th Goldschmidt ties game with a solo HR but this time Bees scratch out a run in top of 10th and hold to win 7-6
Lymebees hit a stunning .307/.358/.553 for series and have a 10-8 record.
Irony abounds in Juggs first 8 series. The Juggs go 1-2 in six series. Our only 2 winning series are 3-0 sweeps against Steve and Brian, this past seasons World Series teams.
Juggs traveled to Speakers with a lot of confidence tonight, needing a sweep to get to .500 (12-12 ). Juggs got a lot of help from the Speakers almost non-existing hitting. Juggs homers made the big difference. Stats to follow soon. Judge is on an MVP pace.
Lymebees travel to Juggs and guess what? Juggs lose 2 of 3 again.
Had a tied game 4-4 in top of ninth and Pham hits a two out two run shot for Lymebees win in game one of series.
Game 2 Wood throws a one hit gem in 8.1 innings; only gives up a solo shot to Travis in top of ninth.
Game 3 Juggs lose 3-1. Galvis makes his second error of series and it costs Juggs a run. Also in this game Votto rolls a fielding 3 which results in a single leading to another run.
I don’t really do write ups much but this one got messy. John and I hooked up yesterday for a morning series, a break for lunch and finished up w/ a series in the afternoon.
Game 1 – 12-2 AB’s Stanton, Healy, Castro and Sanchez (2) hit HR’s and Sanchez drives in 5 as Lynn tosses a complete game. A -13 gift HR loses the shutout for Lynn in 9th.
Game 2 – 6-3 AB’s series gets weird in the 8th as Sanchez and Mauer run each other over trying for a foul ball. Mauer has to leave the game and Sanchez is out for 3 games.
Game 3 – Bees 3-2 Stanton HR in 1st is countered by an Olson 2 run bomb in bottom half. Mauer drives in a run in 2nd. But in the 5th Mauer runs over Grandal on another foul pop. Mauer leaves game and Grandal is out for 1 game. The AB’s now have no catchers for game 3 or the first game of next series. Kevin Pillar raises his hand to volunteer to throw the gear on. Cano knocks in go ahead run in 7th for Bees as the AB’s kick up a fuss in 9th with 2 outs and a man on 1st they hit and run w/ Gardner who gets in the 2nd column but rolls a single and Andrus grounds out to end it.
Game 4 – Bees win 3-2 Manager Steve implores an old softball strategy as Joe Mauer knows how to catch but rather than downgrade two positions he leaves Mauer at 1st and Ryon Healy is the next man up to catch. Zunino HR in 3rd is countered by 2 solo’s from Turner and Ozuna in 7th. Jansen comes on in 9th but yields a 44-0 single to Upton who steals 2nd then Cano doubles Upton in and scores on a wild throw by Jansen.
Game 5 – AB’s 3-1 Ozuna (2) and Gardner drive in the runs as Lance Lynn goes 6 innings for his 2nd win of the day. Grandal survives the entire game at catcher.
Game 6 – AB’s 2-0 as Mad Max hurls a CG gem (helped by John’s rolling ice cubes). Trout scores both runs after reaching on 2 errors. Scores a run on another error and the other on a Stanton double. Sanchez survives the entire game behind the dish.
The Bees only get 26 hits on the day. But the cheesesteaks at Mother’s Subs were good and so was the company.
The AB’s are now 9-6 on the young season with no games scheduled this weekend.
Juggs continue streak of going 1-2 in every series except 1 (Steve 3-0 – wish we could play Steve every series lol). So Juggs lost 2 tonight to The Lemonheads. The Juggs only scored a run in the first inning of every game and that’s it, but the two runs instead of one run was enough for a game 3 win.
By the way the Juggs couldn’t figure out how to print more score sheets, so we went ghetto style.
That was our jinx I think 🤔
