Another Brick in the Juggs Wall

Juggernauts continue to hit a wall they can’t punch through. Needing only one win per their last four series to almost certainly secure a playoff spot Juggs lose 6 straight. And play off hopes pretty well dashed . A depleted bullpen is the biggest reason we can’t contend anymore. Game 1 Ace Degrom for stars (20) . Lowly Gonzales for Juggs (11).  Bottom of first the stars start their hitting streak . Suarez +5 single, Marte +8 homer turned to a double by Gonzales (+21) , Cron +5 rbi single, Ramos  +1rbi sac fly to CF , Gurriel +5 double, Bader +4 3 run homer , Gennett single, Kemp single, zobrist walk against +35 , back to Suarez rbi single, marte and Cron both flyout to end inning. Stars up 6-0 and Gonzales is a base 6 now . Top of second judge solo shot . Bottom 3rd stars score two more . Up 8-1 . Top 4th Votto lead off solo homer , judge follows him with second solo shot of night . Stars up 8-3 . Bottom 5th Suarez gets his 4th straight hit a solo shot and his 3rd rbi of the game . Bottom of 7th stars score 3 more and Suarez will get his 4th rbi by walk . Stars up 12-3 . Top 8 Ahmed walk , Barnhart on by Gennett error , Hicks rbi single. Peralta k , Votto DP . Juggs lose 12-4 . Degrom CG won only 4 hits 3 ER 3 HR 2 BB 11k. Gonzales CG loss. Juggs 4/4/0. Stars 12/18/1. Game 2 Juggs throw Chacin. Stars Kershaw. Bottom of 2nd stars score first gregarious one out double Zobrist two out rbi single, inciarte HBP, Suarez walk, Pederson two rbi single . Stars up 3-0. Top 4th Donaldson solo shot lowrie walk with one out , Anderson PR steals second, Villar PO to RF Anderson tags goes to 3rd , kershaw was pulled after lowrie walked only goes 3.1 ip. Barnhart walk , 3rd pitching change of inning, Peralta will PH for Ahmed with 2 outs runners on corners , oberg in will be a 17 vs Peralta only takes 7 away, Peralta has 10 good hit numbers only one bad .

Top 9th Barnhart lead off double, stars bring in their 5th reliever of game Chapman lefty to face -10 Peralta. Hicks PH rolls 11=5 homer turned back , double scores Barnhart, Cruz PH for Iglesias, stars think hard then make a crucial pitching change with a 6-2 lead pull -63/+51 chapman for dyson. Great move because Cruz rolls a 65 result and springer, judge results 12 all three potentially walks with Chapman, a run would have scored and bases would have been loaded with no outs, good move by stars they win 6-2 . Oberg got the win . Juggs 2/5/2 stars 6/14/3. Game 3 . Things only get worse for Juggs . Trevor Williams a righty 14 1y +16/+23 throws a shutout, no hitter .

Bottom of second stars hit 3 doubles and get a HBP score two runs . Score again in 3rd and 5th. Juggs 0/0/0 stars 4/9/0 . Juggs now 46-47

Stars and Speakers Celebrate

In honor of Kevin’s birthday, the Speakers hosted the 2nd period series, but traveled for the celebration. The Speakers further added to the celebration by totaling just ten hits … in the entire series!

Game 1 – Didi Gregorius can’t find the handle on Anthony Rendon’s grounder in the bottom of the 1st. David Dahl doubles with Rendon pulling up at 3rd. Javy Baez grounds out to plate the game’s first run … and only run!

Carlos Martinez fires a CG one-hitter, hitting Austin Barnes and walking 2. The no-no remained intact until Didi’s triple with 2 outs in the 7th. Carlos walks Matt Carpenter, but stops Ben Zobrist’s 7 to snuff out the threat.

The Speakers never could add on, getting just 2 more base runners into scoring position and collecting a total of 3 hits. (With Dylan Floro recording the only hit turned back with 2 away in the 6th and Whit Merrifield at 2nd, that means the Speakers rolled only 4 hit numbers in 8 innings.)

Martinez improves to 2-0. Morton suffers the tough loss.

Game 2 – Reynoldo Lopez allows more runs in the first 2 innings (8) than the Speakers score in the series (6). Lopez and friends hold the Stars, but will never, ever come back from 8 down.

Eugenio Suarez homers (11-1) to begin the game. He also makes the last out in the 2nd … and the 3rd. Matt Kemp and Gregorius go deep in the 2nd.

Kemp and Inciarte provide 6 of the Stars’ 15 hits. The Speakers sputter to score 2 with 2 outs in the 9th, but fall, 8-5. Lopez can’t repeat his stellar performance against The Plague and falls to 2-3 with a 5.68 ERA.

Game 3 – Another no-hitter alert … except this one is official! Jacob deGrom walks Anthony Rizzo to start the bottom of the 2nd. That’s the Speakers’ only base runner, never advancing a base.

The Speakers did roll 8 hits, but never rolled better than a 55 against the Grade 20 right hander. If anyone would ever get no-hit in OOTL, it would be the Speakers.

Miles Mikolas surrenders just 5 hits, but Joc Pederson leaves the yard in the 6th as the Stars win, 2-0. Mikolas is now 4-4 with a 2.97 ERA.

The Stars are now 5-1 against the Speakers this season. Happy Birthday, Kevin!
