The Plague sweeps the Juggs at Juggs Park.
Game 1 final is 7-1. The Plague 15 hits; Juggs 3. Juggs then lose two one-run games.
Game 2 – The Plague win 1-0 with Severino’s CG shutout. K Davis, Barnhart and Judge each solo homer in the series.
In Game 3 Juggs have a chance to salvage a win in bottom of the 9th. After only having 4 hits up to the 9th inning, Juggs get 3 in a row off Rivero (Grade 25* lefty).
Down 3-2 Juggs lead off with Michael Taylor. He rolls a 33-5 double, but Taylor’s +1 vs. lefties makes Rivero Grade 24, which makes a 5 a single (7). Taylor on first, no outs. Schoop up, hit-and-run. On a 14 roll, Taylor successfully steals 2nd. Schoop’s next roll is a 22-0 going deep. We hope, but no: a second column single is rolled (7)! A 28 is Taylor’s number to score (54 or less on the dice and he is safe). Juggs make a hasty and devastating decision to send him. Taylor is gunned down by Buxton at the plate when Ed rolls a 63!
One out and Schoop on first. Molina then singles. (Ugh.) 1st and 2nd, one out. Kyle Seager pinch hits for Freddy Galvis and flies to right. Votto now up. Juggs think they have a chance, but Votto’s line drive is snagged by Lemahieu.
Juggs strand 9 runners. In the bottom of the 7th Votto hits into a double play with one out, runners on 1st and 3rd. Votto goes 0 for 5 this game with that GIDP and 2 Ks. The Juggs manager is very disappointed with Juggs’ hitting in the series. Votto only 2 for 12 and Judge didn’t hit until Game 3.
The Plague’s first-baseman goes 1 for 4 with a 2 run dinger. Goldschmidt homers once all three games. The Plague only have 3 homers the whole series.
