Juggernauts use luck and power to sweep Bastards at Juggs home field.
Game 1 Santana vs Gio Gonzalez, Santana pitched a complete game for his first loss of the season. His 3 WP , 4 Walks to 10 strikeouts and 3 HR allowed ,really hurt his chances for the win . His second WP of the game came in the bottom of the fourth, Lowrie led off the inning with a single advanced to second on the WP and then Healy made a costly error to allow the juggs to get on the scoreboard first . Gennetts two run shot in bottom of fifth for a 3-0 lead . Juggs then add 1 in the sixth , but should have had 3 as Hicks 5 with runners on first and second was changed to a 7 . Top of the 6th bastards close the gap with back to back homers by Stanton and Sanchez. 4-2 now Juggs lead . Juggs add cushion tho in 7th and 8th with solo shots by Votto and Hicks . That’s all the juggs relievers needed to close out the game , Gonzalez went 5.1 innings no runs , only 1 hit and 1 walk with 4 ks for the win . 6-2.
Game 2 . Lance Lynn vs Alex Wood . Bastards score first inning, J Turner lead off single , Castro Fly ball RF Stanton HR turned back to a double , Sanchez walk bases full for Healy who hits into a potential DP but the juggs fielding 2 roll and Healy not having an S allows a FC score , runners first and third two outs and Wood Wiffs Ozuna to end the threat. Juggs bounce back tho with a Judge 2 run shot bottom of first . Wood gives up a run in the 4th and 6th . But the juggs 3 run 4th inning gave Wood all he needed to assure a win with K. Seagers clutch one out bases loaded double scoring 3 . Seager added a rbi double in bottom of 6th for insurance. Juggs win 6-3 Wood went 6 innings for the win Neschek gains a save . The bastards did have an opportunity in the 8th when Madson hit lead off Sanchez, Dee Gordon then in to pinch run , Gordon then is gunned down by Barnhart in a steal attempt.
Game 3 Hamels vs Carasco, hamels is pulled after 2.2 innings even tho he gave up no earned runs, it was Mauers two out error that loads the bases for a Delong 2 run single in bottom of 3rd. Which closes the gap with the Bastards big 3 run inning in the second inning. Carasco gives up a solo shot to Castro then a single to get chased out in the top of the 6th . 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 . Wow Juggs can’t believe it . 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. And like I said at the very beginning super lucky Milner was a +41 and Davis +22 in power control

The Browns travel to Hustontown tomorrow to take on the Lymebees and will face the Lemonheads on Wednesday before looking to finish out the season against The Plague sometime in the next few weeks.
The Juggs won one and lost two , on their trip to the Plague , Juggs high point of game two was a RP triple play 3-3-3-6 , and we had a RP dp with runners on 2nd and 3rd , but they only stemmed the bleeding as the plague destroyed us that game , game one we lost 2-1 , game 3 juggs come back from a 4-0 deficit to win 5-4 . Ed continues his league lead in sacs.
Juggernauts continues trend of going 1-2 I last 4 series . Eliminators win game 1 and 2 , Juggs win game 3 with a bottom of the tenth walk off solo by Orlando, Orlando who has 3 0’s and only 4 1’s in second column has 4 homers on the APBA season already matching his MLB number.
Juggs at wahoos, game one carasco vs strasburg, wahoos win easily 11-3 , with a lot of help from juggs trumbo who commits 2 errors of the juggs four errors all costly , in addition trumbo rolls fielding 3 on RP board and gives up a RBI triple to Crawford who also scores. Top of first Strasburg turns back a votto homerun with only a +14 , omen of that game . Game 2 juggs come back and win 5-1 , springer, Orlando and schoop all have solo shots. The latter two back to back with 3 straight rolls of 66s. Duke gets win in relief. Game 3 is one for the record books.

Rodriguez gets the win and wood gets the loss after he pitches 12.1 innings.eaton finally hits a two run homer for wahoos win . It was a crazy game with all kinds of missed scoring opportunities, votto who is a G34 was caught stealing second twice along with two others as the wahoos threw out 4 of 5 base stealers and picked off hermmann on 3rd on an attempted squeeze play in the 19th .I am going to do a complete breakdown of the game later or if I figure it out just send pics of the score sheets lol.
