Bastards lead 4-2 and bring out all the big guns to try and close out the game for a win and not get swept , Which they didn’t have happen to them the entire season last year . The juggs see Buesnitz, Jansen, Warren, Milner , and Wade Davis . Doesn’t look good for Juggs we are shut down completely for 5 innings, bottom off ninth Juggs losing Milner pitching to galvis to lead the inning. Juggs PH for Galvis with Khris (KRUSH ) Davis and Bam 66 homerun .now it’s 4-3 no outs Bastards favor still . Bastards pull Milner because schoop the next batter will be his 7th faced and schoop is a +4/-3 . Bastards bring in Davis to save the game . But , Boom 66 homer by Schoop tie game .

Next up Smoak with his double ones but -3 vs righties, Juggs go with the power hitter and KABOOM a roll of 11 Homerun Juggs win , Juggs win we can’t believe it back to back to back for the win Incredible.
