Asian Tsunamis at Speakers

Game 1 – The Tsunamis start fast against David Price. Ryan Zimmerman doubles and Xander Bogaerts reaches on Yoenis Cespedes’ third error of the season. With 1st & 3rd and no outs, Price whiffs Ryan Raburn, prevents a Franklin Gutierrez walk before a harmless pop to short, and then Ks Miguel Cabrera to end an eventful top of the 1st.

Same situation in the bottom half: 1st & 3rd, no outs. Jordan Zimmermann strikes out Cespedes and gets Kris Bryant to pop to 2nd. Carlos Gonzalez finds Raburn (OF-1) in center on an error re-roll, which results in an RBI single and E8.

In the 5th, a pair of one-out singles chase Zimmermann. Bryant reaches on a Zimmerman error to load the bases. Gonzalez lofts a fly to Jose Bautista in right, which proves deep enough to score Buster Posey.

Following Zimmerman’s double to lead off the game, Price allows no base runner past 1st base. Bogaerts’ 9th inning single (55-7) with 1 out is the only other Tsunami hit. Price strikes out both Raburn and Gutierrez to preserve the complete game 2-hitter, 2-0.

W – Price (5-4, 3rd shutout); L – Zimmermann

Game 2 – The Tsunamis threaten in the 1st inning again. Chris Archer whiffs both Cabrera and Bautista. In back-to-back ABs, Bogaerts finds his prized 55-7. Jung Ho Kang appears to leave the yard, but Archer rolls 16 for a 2-out double. To add insult to injury, Javier Baez relays a strike to nail Bogaerts at the plate to end the inning.

Clayton Kershaw retires the first two Speakers, but then allows consecutive singles to Posey (55-7), Baez and Mookie Betts (12-Fielding 3). Chris Young makes Kershaw pay with a 3-run shot (4) and early 4-0 lead.

Aided by a Khris Davis error, 4 more singles and Posey’s 2-run double, the Speakers score 4 in the 2nd, too. Betts and Young strike for back-to-back 2-out doubles in the 4th for a commanding 9-0 lead.

Pitching a neat 4-hit shutout through 8, Archer finally falters in the 9th. With 2 on and 2 out, Prince Fielder strokes a 2-run double, his first hit as a Tsunami! Archer Ks Randall Grichuk to close out the 9-2 complete game. Young (3-4, D, HR, 5 RBI, R) leads the 15-hit attack.

W – Archer (6-3); L – Kershaw

Game 3 – Wei-Yin Chen and Matt Harvey keep the opposing offenses at bay. The Tsunamis load the sacks in the 2nd with 2 away, but Dee Gordon strikes out to end the threat.

With 2 outs in the 4th, Khris Davis krushes a solo home run to give the Tsunamis their first lead of the series. With 2 outs in the bottom half, Young matches that solo power with his 5th HR of the season.

Speakers threaten in the 5th, but Kike Hernandez flies to center with 2 on and 2 outs. Cespedes pinch hits for Kike in the 7th and lifts a high fly that looks like it could go out; however, Hector Rondon, just into the game, knocks it back to a double (+33).

We remain tied 1-1 until the 13th inning. After Kinsler files to left, Rajai Davis triples. Erik Goeddel comes on to face Cespedes, who rolls a 9 against a 19: pop up to 2nd base for the 2nd out. Anthony Rizzo goes deep, which Goeddel (+51) turns into a walk off RBI single.

W – Darren O’Day (1-1); L – Brad Ziegler

Tsunamis score in just two of 31 innings (3 total runs). Speakers out-hit the Tsunamis 29-15. Speakers finish 6-4 against the Asian Tsunamis during the regular season.

Arrogant Bastards at Asian Tsunamis

Game 1
Salazar v Warren….Trout doubles in a run in the 1st.  Russell SAC’s in a run in the 4th.  Agone goes yard in the 6th for a 3-0 AB’s lead.  Craig then says its time to hit and proceeds to score 5 runs in the 6th and 3 in the 7th.  Grichuk had a big 2-out 2-run double followed by a 2-run HR by Davis; and, Bogaerts had a double in each inning driving in 3 total.  Final was 8-4 w/ the win to Warren and loss to Melancon.
Game 2
Hamels v Zimmermann…Big Papi knocked in a run on a 2nd inning ground out; and then Andrus singled in Gardner (pinch running for Stanton) in the 9th for the games only runs as the AB’s won 2-0.  Hamels got the win and Davis picked up a save as the Nami’s had a RISP in the 7th, 8th, and 9th – 7th and 8th were lead off doubles. Starting the 8th Cedeno +24 turned back a potential game tying HR.   Zimmermann took the tough loss.
Game 3
Miller v Nola….this game was a war to win the series.  Paulsen doubled in 2 in the 2nd for a 2-0 lead.  In the 3rd Panik got a bases loaded single and then Papi BB’d to force a 2-2 tie.  In the 6th the AB’s got a 2 RBI double from Stanton to go up 4-2.  In the bottom of the 6th w/ 2 outs, Miller (+32) failed to pull back a Davis 2-run HR and the game was tied at 4-4.  In the top of the 7th Howell (+31) pulled back a Papi HR to keep the score knotted at 4-4.  In the 10th Stanton sent a bomb outta the yard to put the AB’s back in front 5-4.  W/ 2 outs in the bottom of the 10th, Hundley rolled a 11-0 to tie the game once again at 5-5 off a now beleaguered Wade Davis.  In the top of the 11th, Martin led off w/ a 10 single (I believe), then Gardner singled and up stepped Mike Trout who deposited a 3-run HR that Pomeranz (+21) could not pull back.  Jansen came on in the bottom of the 11th for a 3 batter save for Davis while Pomeranz took the loss.

AB’s went 6 for 32 w/ RISP while the Nami’s went 8 for 31….as both teams had their opportunities.

AB’s after 54 games are now 29-25 as the try to grind through the 2nd period.  They are looking to schedule next week v the Stars, Bees or the Eliminators.  Good luck the rest of the way everyone.

Speakers at Asian Tsunamis

Game 1 – Kris Bryant doubles home a 2-out 1st inning run for the Speakers. This would be Bryant’s only hit of the series.

From the 9-hole, in his first plate appearance as a Speaker, Ian Kinsler homers off Adam Warren. The Speakers tack on 4 more in the 4th, highlighted by Kinsler’s 2-run double.

Meanwhile, 7 hits through the first 4 innings leave the Tsunamis with a ton of stranded base runners and zero runs against Matt Harvey. Kinsler (4-4, D, HR, 4-RBI, 2-R debut) and Manny Machado add RBI singles in the 6th and 7th, respectively, for a commanding 8-0 lead.

Finally, with 2 outs in the 9th, the ATs’ Miguel Cabrera ropes a 3-run HR to dent the scoreboard. Harvey calmly whiffs Jung Ho Kang to claim the CG 8-3 victory, scattering 13 hits.

W – Harvey (5-3); L – Warren

Game 2 – Yoenis Cespedes finds a gap for a 2nd inning 2-run double and an early 3-0 lead for David Price. Anthony Rizzo’s RBI single in the 7th would be the only other run of the game. Price goes the distance, twirling a 3-hit shutout, 4-0.

W – Price (4-3); L – Gio Gonzalez

Game 3 – Clayton Kershaw turns the tables, pitching a 5-hit CG shutout at the Speakers. The Tsunamis bat around in the 2nd to chase Carlos Martinez, who suffers his first loss of the season.

Xander Bogaerts and Kang each contribute 2 singles to the cause. Bogaerts chips in a pair of RBIs to prevent the sweep. Javier Baez (3-4) earns the majority of the Speakers 5 singles.

W – Kershaw; L – Martinez (6-1)

Asian Tsunamis at Shartlesville Browns

The Tsunamis traveled to Shartlesville for an early morning series on Saturday. Here’s what went down:

Game 1) Gallardo v Nola. The Tsunamis struck first when Cabrera singled with the bases loaded to drive in 2 in the 3rd. The Browns evened the score in the bottom of the 3rd with a solo HR from former Asian Danny Espinosa and an RBI single from Iglesias. Espinosa put the Sharts ahead with an RBI single in the 4th before the Tsunamis tied it up again in the 7th. They would go ahead with a ridiculous series of events in the top of the 8th. Kang and Cabrera reached on errors to lead off the inning and Grichuk drove in one with a ground out. The Browns won it 5-4 in the bottom of the 10th when Hairpin worked a 2-out walk and was driven in by a Perez double.

Game 2) Wacha v Gonzalez. The Tsunamis got the leadoff hitter on in 7 of the first 8 innings but didn’t score in any of them. Meanwhile, the Browns got a run in the 5th when Iglesias singled in Joseph and unearned solo runs in the 6th and 7th to lead 3-0 going into the top of the 9th. Wacha allowed yet another leadoff runner as Cabrera singled. Grichuck smacked a 2-out homer to make it 3-2 with no one out. Wacha struck out Davis and got Hundley to ground out before Tony Watson was summoned to face Gordon. Former Brown Ryan Zimmerman pinch hit and popped up to 2B to end the Game. Wacha improved to 3-7 while Watson earned his 5th save.

Game 3) Cueto v Zimmermann. The Asians jumped on their former mate Cueto quickly, and often. Bogaerts led off the game with a double and was plated by a Kang single. Kang came around to make it 2-0 on a Cabrera double. Another Espinosa HR in the 3rd made it 2-1, but Hundley homered in the 4th to make it 3-1. The Browns pushed ahead again in the bottom of the 4th as Harper singled, Morales doubled and Dozier homered to make it 4-3. The Tsunamis tied it up on an RBI groundout by Grichuck in the 5th and looked to have broken things open in the 7th with doubles from Kang, Dickerson and Grichuck around a Cabrera walk to take a 7-4 advantage. With one out in the Browns’ 8th, Perez reached on an E6, Harper singled and Seager walked to bring Morales to the plate. He hadn’t homered in 27 starts but dropped a 66 to deliver a grand slam. Uehara struck out the side in the 9th to secure a 8-7 win and the Browns first ever sweep.


The Browns were out-hit 32 to 26 in the series but turned 5 double plays and had 2 outfield assists to avoid more damage.

The Brown came into the series hitting .203 on the season but hit .252 for the series.

The Brown improve to 29-31 while the Tsunamis fall to 19-23.

Former Tsunami Danny Espinosa went 4-12 with 2 homers and 3 RBI.
