Eliminators at Shartlesville Browns

The Browns hosted the Eliminators this afternoon (6/10), and it’s become clear that the Browns may never win again.

Game 1: Lester v Samardzija. The Sharts loaded the bases with 2 outs in the 1st only to have Reddick K… and then get ejected. Yeah, it was going to be that kind of series. In the 2nd the Browns scored 3 on an RBI double from Sal Perez and a 2-run double from Kyle Seager. Then the bats went silent. Lester was cruising, retiring 18 of 19 at one point when, with 2 out in the 8th, Castillo hit a ball at Corey Seager who did what 8 shortstops do and booted it. That’s all the Eliminators needed. Herrera (-9 vs LHP) singled to chase Lester. Bogaerts greeted Nate Jones with a 2-run double and then Steve Pearce put the Elims ahead with a 2-run HR. The Browns went 1-2-3 in the bottom of the 8th but at least tried to put up a fight against Reed in the 9th. Calhoun led off with a double followed by a Maybin walk. Salvy K’d and Fowler grounded into a double play to end it. This game was the bright spot in the Series for the boys from Shartlesville. Eliminators 4/5/0 Browns 3/5/1

Game 2: Sale v Cueto. The less said about the next two games, the better. Eliminators get the first run of the game in the 7th. Sharts tie it in the bottom of the 8th with a solo shot from Salvy. It stayed 1-1 till the 13th when former Browns Herrera and Segura both single. Herrera scores the go-ahead run on a wild pitch and Ian Desmond delivers Segura on a single of his own. Eliminators 3/9/0 – Browns 1/4/0

Game 3: Rodon v Gausman. The Browns take the lead in the 2nd on a Maybin sac fly. The Elims tie it in the 6th when former Brown Hanley Ramirez doubles with 2 outs and Steve Pearce singled him in. The Browns never threatened to score but the pen looked like they would keep them in the game. Cody Allen K’d 7 in his 3 innings of relief and with a runner on 2nd in the top of the 9th Donnie Hart K’d Desmond to end the inning. Mike Montgomery was summoned to start the 10th, for what looked to be another long affair. He had other ideas as he walked the bases loaded, surrendered a run on a sac fly, walked the bases loaded again before giving up a bases clearing double to Steve-Motherfucking-Pearce. Just for shits he walked the next batter too, before getting the last out. Five walks. Five. Five. Eliminators 5/5/0 – Browns 1/7/0

Notes: The Browns Slashed .150/.220/.206

Every Brown is available for trade.

This game is dumb.

Dice are dumb.

The real answer to the question “Where’s Matlock?” is: “In my head.”

Matlock’s goatee is dumb.

Baseball is dumb.

Speakers vs. Eliminators

These two teams, who entered OOTL the same year, squared off in the Eliminators’ new Mechanicsburg ballpark Saturday afternoon.

Game 1 – After getting strafed in his Speakers’ debut, Bartolo Colon leaked just enough oil to pick up his second loss in as many starts. The Speakers were able to cover Colon’s allowing solos to Victor Martinez and Odubel Herrera. However, they couldn’t overcome back-to-back-to-back doubles (Josh Donaldson, Victor and Ian Desmond) in the 4th. Xander Bogaerts strokes a 2-out RBI single in the 8th to wrap up a 5-3 win that was nowhere near as close as the score indicates.

W – Kevin Gausman; L – Colon (0-2); S – Addison Reed

Game 2 – The Speakers score as many in the top of the 1st as they did in Game 1. A pair of walks hurt Julio Teheran as Kris Bryant gaps a 2-out 2-run double and Ian Kinsler follows with an RBI single.

Kinsler singles home Manny Machado in the 5th with run #4. Jake Arrieta and Joe Blanton do the rest as the Speakers knot the series, 4-0.

W – Arrieta (2-0); L – Teheran; S – Blanton (1)

Game 3 – Rookie David Dahl starts the Speakers’ 2nd with a double. With 2 outs, Buster Posey lines a double of his own. Mookie Betts singles home Posey for an early 2-0 advantage.

The Eliminators cobble together Desmond’s single, Jonathon Lucroy’s perfect hit-and-run single (31) and Herrera’s RBI double to cut the lead in half, 2-1, in the 3rd. After Roughned Odor singles with 1 away in the 4th, Posey executes a hit-and-run single. Betts’ sac fly helps the Speakers regain their 2-run margin, 3-1.

The Eliminators enjoy base runners in every succeeding inning except the 9th, but can’t muster a clutch hit. Jeremy Hellickson and the Speaker pen preserve the 3-1 victory.

W – Hellickson (2-0); L – Felix Hernandez; S – Roberto Osuna (1)

Game 4 – Chris Archer’s first pitch of the season lands beyond the left-center field fence as Jean Segura puts the Eliminators up early. In the 3rd, Segura does it again — his second solo blast of the game.

The big blow comes in the 4th as new Eliminator Hanley Ramirez launches a 3-run homer. The Elims bat around in the 5th to plate 3 more for an 8-0 lead before the Speakers get their first hit.

The Speakers also bat around in the 5th, scoring 4 times, but it would hardly be enough. The Eliminators win 8-4 to split the series.

W – Jeff Samardzija; L – Archer (0-1)

Series Notes: The Eliminators out-homer the Speakers, 5-1. Although Colon coughs up 5 ER in 6.2 IP, he reduces his ERA to 10.80. Through 8 games, Arrieta (2-0, 1.10) and Hellickson (2-0, 0.57) are saving a staff whose overall ERA is 4.20.  Kinsler produces all 6 of his hits in this series. Herrera goes 4-9 with a double, HR and 4 walks — all from the 9 hole.

Eliminators vs. Shartlesville Browns

The Browns kicked off their 2nd season in the league by welcoming the Eliminators to their Downtown home on Sunday:

Game 1. Cueto v Sale. The Eliminators jumped out to a quick lead as Jean Segura made his former team pay with a leadoff homer. Two unearned runs in the 7th pushed the lead to 3-0 before Dozier smacked at 2 run shot to narrow it to 3-2. The teams traded runs in the 8th before a Donaldson 2 Run Homer put it away in the bottom of the 8th. Sale was the winner while Cueto took the loss.

Game 2: HIll v Gausman. The Browns got on the board first with a another homer by Dozier. A C. Seager RBI single in the 4th made it 2-0, but the Eliminators pushed 1 across in the 5th to cut the lead. Another Seager RBI single made it 3-1 in the 6th before the a sloppy inning, including 2 errors from C. Maybin, tied things at 3 after 6 full. It stayed that way until the 11th when Kyle Seager worked a leadoff walk and following a single from Miggy was driven in by the younger Seager for his 3rd RBI single of the day. Montgomery Worked 2 innings for the win, Betances took the loss and Strop earned the save.

Game 3: Hammel v Lester. This was a home run game. Cabrerra Hit a 2 run Shot in the 1st and Brandon Guyer Had solo shots in the 3rd and 7th, all off Lester. That was enough for the Browns to survive another Segura dinger in the 3rd and a laed off homer from V-Mart in the 7th. Hammel won, Lester went a complete game in the loss and Jones picked up the save.

Game 4: Rodon v Richard: The Elims used 3 singles to take a 2-0 lead in the 1st. It was 4-0 as the bottom of the 5th started but by the time it was done the Browns had batted around (aided by 2 errors) and lead 7-4. A Dozier 3B made it 8-4 in the 7th and it looked like the Sharts would cruise to an easy win. But the Eliminators made it tough in the 9th when with 2 out and one on they got a Steve Pearce 2B followed by a Freeman single and a Heyward pinch hit single vs 30 Donnie Hart to make it 8-6 before the Browns could get out #27. Rodon got a gross W while Richard took the loss. Hart got one out for the save.

Notes: The Eliminators strategy to throw 3 southpaws at the Browns looks to have backfired. The Sharts slashed .227/.266/.387 (17-75) vs lefties and .189/.396/.358 vs righties.

C. Seager drove in 5 runs in the series while hitting .250
C. Maybin made 3 errors
Who had Brandon Guyer being tied with Brian Dozier for the team lead in HR after 1 series?
J. Abreu collected 5 hits in the series, all vs LHP

The Browns are scheduled to play the Lemonheads on Sunday.
