Lymebees vs. Speakers

Game 1 – Speakers get an Anthony Rizzo 3-run HR in the 1st and a Buster Posey 2-run shot in the 2nd, and then fail to score in 25 of the next 27 innings. This embarrassing drought allows the Lymebees to pull within a run in the 5th, highlighted by Kirk Nieuwenhuis’ 2-run HR.

It also allows the Bees to stroke four hits, including two for extra bases, to walk off in the 9th. Christian Yelich and Robinson Cano doubles drive the final nails into the Speakers coffin, 6-5.

W – Kyle Crockett (1-0), L – Jeremy Jeffress (0-2)

Game 2 – The Lymebees close the door early, thanks to a 2-run double by Yelich and RBI single by Cano in the 2nd off formerly King Felix. Justin Upton’s 8th inning HR closes the door on a 5-1 victory.

W – Sonny Gray (1-0), L – Hernandez (1-3)

Game 3 – Adam Lind’s 2nd inning 3-run HR puts this one away. The Bees collect double-digit hits for the third consecutive game while the Speakers drop another easy 7-1 decision.

W – Gio Gonzalez (1-0), L – Bud Norris (0-2)

Game 4 – Upton’s second HR of the series puts the Lymebees up 3-1 after 4. The Speakers string together 4 hits in the 5th to lead 4-3. Anthony Rendon’s 2-out 2-run single provides the lead.

Stephen Vogt homers in the 6th for insurance, but the Bees kick up another 9th inning fuss. Rizzo fumbles a throw from short for Eric Hosmer to reach. After two ground outs, Nieuwenhuis pinch hits and rolls his third “0” in six plate appearances! However, it’s just a single against Familia with a runner on 2nd. The Speakers wriggle out of the jam to shatter another 3-game losing streak, 5-3.

W – Jordan Zimmermann (3-1), L – Zack Wheeler (0-1), S – Familia (1)
