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.

Game 1; Greinke vs Hendricks; Lemonheads score 4 runs in 5th on HR’s by Duvall, Murphy and Martinez with Martinez hitting another HR in 8th, Bees would get 2 run HR by Gonzalez in 9th as Lemonheads win 6-2 with Greinke pitching a complete game

Game 2; Pomeranz vs Clevinger; Martinez hit 2 run HR in 1st for Lemonheads, Bees get solo HR by Upton and rbi single by Beltre in bottom of 1st, Cruz hits solo HR in 2nd and Turner hits solo HR in 3rd to put the Lemonheads up 4-2, Bees get one run in 6th, Lemonheads get a run in 8th on a runner on 3rd strike out catchers overthrows first as run scores and he ends up on second. Lemonheads win 5-3

Game 3; Claudio vs Bumgarner; All I can say is Lemonheads hit 6 doubles and 3 HR’s, Claudio pitches complete game and Lemonheads win 13-2 to complete the sweep.

Juggs Squeeze Lemonheads

At Juggs newly named Basher Stadium, Juggs get 3 hard fought home wins.

Game One was a tight 1-1 game until the bottom of the 12th. Chad Greene was in his fourth inning of relief when he walked Smoak to lead off. Schoop inch runs. A WP sends Schoop to second. Taylor Ks. Hicks flies to left. Lowrie gets the game-winning hit with an RBI double. Juggs win 2-1.

Juggs have five walks this game, part of the 20 we have for the series. Juggs got their first run in the first with 2 outs on back to back doubles by Donaldson and Gennett. Judge hit into a double play after Votto walked at the top of the inning.

Lemonheads scored their only run in the 6th. Albies hits a lead off single,  advances to second on a ground out, and then is singled home by JD Martinez. Lemonheads had first and third with one out and JD up again, but this time hits into a DP in the 8th.

Chad Greene took the loss  Swarzak gets the win.

Game Two saw Juggs in trouble early. Duvall hits a 3 run bomb for the Lemonheads in the top of the second. Juggs get one back in the bottom half. Juggs get to make it a one run game when Smoak hits a solo blast after his first inning double. Bottom of third, Lemonheads up 3-2.

Top of 4th, Lemonheads get 2 more runs. Bottom half, Juggs get another one back with when Taylor advances Votto to third with his double (homer turned back by Happ) and Molina gets an RBI ground out.

Bottom of 4 lemons up 5-3, But things don’t go well for the Lemonheads bullpen, which allowed five walks in 4 innings. Juggs score 3 of their next 5 runs from those walks, helped by Taylor’s 3 run homer in the bottom of the 8th.

Juggs end up winning 9-5. Lemonheads pitching allowed 8 walks this game. Taylor went 4 for 4, double, homer, 3 RBIs, 1 run scored. Robertson wins and Neshek saves for the Juggs. Gearrin took the loss.

In Game Three Lemonheads score their first 3 batters in the top of the first against Carrasco. But the Juggs respond with a two out two run homer by Donaldson.

It’s Lemonheads on top 3-2 until the bottom of the 6th when the walk bug gets the Lemonheads again: 3 BBs this inning, two score three runs total. Juggs up 5-3 now. Carrasco has completely settled down since the first inning and throws a CG victory, 7-3 Juggs. 7 more walks by Lemonheads pitchers this game. Pomeranz takes the loss.

Both Managers Label Teams “Pathetic”

Game 1:  Heads 4  Speakers 3  17-innings

A walk-off JT Realmuto solo blast in the 17th inning wins it.  Matt Harvey was elected to eat it.

Game 2:  Speakers 8  Heads 2

Chase Anderson tosses a 2-hitter but loses the shutout in the 9th on a Toy Story 2-run homer.  A 3-run 4th and 4-run 6th lead the Speakers as Merrifield and Rizzo homer.

Game 3:  Speakers 4  Heads 2  16innings

A Rendon 2-run HR in the top of the 16th wins it as Cishek’s art imitated life late in the evening.

A frustrating series for both managers that was either made palpable or further enraged by some potent beers and pizza….

Team stats are absolutely pathetic.
