2018 Juggs Run

Just some ending stats and notes from championship series. Total runs scored : Lemons 25 , Juggs 26. Total hits : Lemons 56, Juggs 47. Total Home runs hit and turned back : Lemons actual homers 8 turned back 6. Juggs actual homers 8 turned back 9. Total SB and CS: Lemons SB 2 CS 1 ( all Blackmon), Juggs SB 1 CS 2. Hit batsman: Lemons 1 ( Jose Martinez) Juggs 1 (Donaldson) . Total walks: Lemons 15, Juggs 23. Total errors: Lemons 5, Juggs 1.  In game 5 we had a RP result, Schoop on second after hitting a HR turned back to a double, one out Molina PH for Barnhart, RP results in Molina getting a single but Schoop is called out for coming into contact with ground ball. Juggs still managed to win that game 6-5 in ten innings. That was the only extra innings game of the series. I sent out all my score sheets from series on email if you would like to look at them. Juggs one weakness this year was lack of speed and quality base stealers, which left us vulnerable to hitting into double plays and not scoring from second. Also could not manufacture a run when needed. It was home run or bust. I must say Bob made some very good pitching moves at key times in the series. Congratulations again, Bob.

Game 7

Heads score 3 top 2nd on Duvall 2ebi 3B and Realmuto RBI 1b. Juggs score 3 in 5th on Springer RBI 2B, Molina PH RBI 1B and DeJong PH Sac Fly. Juggs get a solo HR from Votto in 7th vs +42 Gearrin. Teammates bail him out in the 8th with a Blackmon 10 single vs a 19, he steals 2nd on a botched Murphy H&R, Murphy rolls a HR that gets turned back, Kinsler pinch runs, JD rolls a homer that gets turned back but gives Heads the lead. Gearrin gets thru the 8th and Green slams the door in the 9th for the Lemonheads 2nd OOTL title!!

It was an Instant Classic series.

2018 Championship Series – Deadlocked

Lemons and Juggs tied at 2 games a piece. Lemons win game 1 2-0 at Juggs . Juggs win game 2 5-3 at home . Game 3 at Lemons Juggs win 9-0 . Game 4 at Lemons Juggs lose 3-2 , that game tied 2-2 top of 5th Juggs load bases no outs . Judge rolls a 24 result only one on card , Lemons were playing close , but roll fielding 3 so only one out at home plate . Donaldson up next gets a 27 3b play result, DP . Unbelievable. Juggs mentally broke after that . Bottom of 5th 2 outs . Neshek in +43 vs homers gives up homer to Jose Martinez. Lemons take 3-2 lead and hold it for win . Juggs did have a two out PH double by Dejong, Hicks up next , but Juggs debate PH K Seager he has a 0 at 22 Hicks only an 8 . But Hicks has a better chance to get on base so I talk myself out of it . Yep I roll a 22 which would have been a 0 but taken to 7 by pitcher . But Dejong would have most likely scored to tie it . 😑. Juggs travel to Lemons next Sunday to finish up series.
