Speakers Avoid The Plague

Game 1 – The Speakers use a 2-out Kenta Maeda wild pitch immediately followed by a James McCann passed ball to score Mookie Betts in the top of the 1st. Anthony Rizzo doubles the lead by connecting (2) to lead off the 4th.

A 2-out Betts walk precedes a pair of singles in the 5th. Manny Machado’s 9 plates Betts for a 3-0 lead. A pair of 2-run homers in the 8th by Javy Baez (5) and Juan Soto (3) put the opener out of reach, 7-0.

Reynoldo Lopez (2-2) goes the distance, allowing a Michael Brantley RP single in the 1st and a Paul Goldschmidt 7 to lead off the 8th. Lopez records just takeaways, facing only 31 batters.

Game 2 – Baez clubs #6 to lead off the 2nd. Brandon Nimmo answers in the bottom half with a 2-run double to put The Plague on the scoreboard for the first time in the series.

The Speakers manufacture the tying run in the 3rd on 2 walks, a Kyle Gibson wild pitch, and a Mitch Haniger sac fly. Nimmo loses a walk and a home run, but doubles home Max Kepler in the 4th for a 3-2 home team advantage.

The Plague holds the Speakers to a Haniger double (turned back by Gibson’s +14) the rest of the way. Goldy’s 2-run blast in the 8th clinches a 7-2 series-tying win, the first time The Plague have defeated the Speakers this season.

Mike Mikolas surrenders 10 hits in 6.2 IP and falls to 4-3.

Game 3 – Machado’s first error and Francisco Lindor’s 2-out RBI single give The Plague the early lead.

The Speakers answer immediately as Lindor boots a ball to begin the 2nd. Luis Severino uncorks a wild pitch, Cody Bellinger doubles home Baez for a 1-1 tie. However, the Speakers aren’t done.

Severino walks Omar Narvaez and Juan Soto with 1 away. Betts strokes a 2-run single (10), David Dahl singles home another (7), and with 2 outs, Rizzo clears the bases with a 2-run double. Speakers lead, 6-1.

Ross Stripling retires the next 7 hitters, but Lindor triples in the 4th and Kevin Kiermaier lofts a sac fly to right. The Speakers continue to add on as Dahl deposits a 2-run HR (2) over the fence in right in the 6th.

After stranding a pair in the 5th, The Plague take advantage of an Andrelton Simmons error with 1 out in the 6th. Kiermaier follows with a 2-run blast to match Dahl.

The Speakers pen squashes any hope of a comeback. Speakers win, 8-4, as Edwin Diaz sets down The Plague in order. Ross Stripling improves to 2-1. Speakers take the series, 2-1, and climb back to .500, 15-15.

The Plague Invades Juggs

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.

Will play Steve on Saturday.
