Arrogant Bastards vs. Shooting Stars II

With last year’s opening series sweep dealt by the Bastards still fresh in the mind of the Stars, eight players contribute to a victory and Lynn, Hughes and Ramos combine for the win.

Top of the second, Bastards get their only run on an error committed by Crisp as Longoria smacks a single and Crisp fumbles the throw. Stars also score in the bottom half of the second. Frazier doubles. Cervelli singles him home and Pedroia smacks a double to score the catcher.

Stars don’t stop tagging it as Kemp blasts a solo shot to lead off the bottom of the fourth. With two outs in the fifth, Crisp walks. Pagan gets a 31 hit-and-run single followed by Morneau’s h/r single scoring Crisp. Kemp then hits a 1-1 number 5 HR only to realize his 3 run blast is a 7 against a 9 pitcher, so Pagan scores and Morneau holds up at second. Score now 5-1 Stars.

Pence scores in the 6th after walking and back to back singles by Cervelli and Pedroia. Pedroia scores in the 8th after a leadoff walk, a double by Crisp and a single by Pagan. Final 7 to 1.

Game 2 – Pitchers earn their keep as no runs score until the 8th. ABs get a lead off single followed by back to back walks and a sac.

Stars only hit a double in the 9th by Cuddyer with two outs.

Game 3 – Fister gives up 3 long balls and 4 runs and the Stars muster only 4 hits and score two runs, 1 unearned in the ninth. HRs by Stanton, Gonzalez, Trout.

Game 4 – Frazier hits a two run HR in the 4th, but the stars are hammered by the CHAMPS. 5 HRs in 3 innings and two multiple run scoring HRs kill any chance for a split.

ABs get dingers from Ozuna a two run shot in the 2nd. A two run shot in the 2nd by Martin GIFTED. Gonzalez hits a solo shot in the 3rd. Martin smacks a solo shot in the 4th. Stanton Smacks a solo shot in the 5th.

Team Owner goes nuts and starts throwing coconuts onto the field. What started so promising ended with a frustrated Stars team batting only .190 and being out homered 8 to 2.
