Shartlesville Browns at The Plague

The Browns wrapped up their season at The Plague on Sunday.

Game 1: Tanaka v Darvish. The Browns opened the scoring in the 4th when Seager led off with a double and was knocked in on a Reddick single. The Browns went to the pen after 5 to bring in Montgomery despite Tanaka pitching well. Bregman greeted Monty with a leadoff dinger to tie it. In the top of the 7th Belt drew a leadoff walk and was pulled for Tomlinson as a pinch runner. Salvy Perez knocked him in with a double. Monty worked a 1-2-3 7th and Brad Ziegler retired all 6 batters he faced for the save. Montgomery got the win in relief. Browns 2/6/0 Plague 1/3/1

Game 2: Lester v Matz. Maybin legged out a 1-out triple in the 1st and came in to score on a single from Brandon Guyer. Sean Rodriguez led off the 2nd with a hommer to make it 2-0 but the Plague cut it to 2-1 with a Cain 2-out homer in the 3rd. Tomlinson worked a 2-out walk in the top of the 7th and Maybin plated him with his second triple of the game. With a 3-1 lead Lester gave up a hit and a walk to start the 6th so Matt Bush was summoned to douse the fire and go out of the 7th. But Bush gave up a 2-out triple in 8th so the sharts turned to Donnie Hart, who retied Goldschmidt (+7 vs LHP) to end the inning. The Browns padded the lead with back-to-back pinch hit doubles from Seager and Abreu in the top of the 9th. Hart (with only 2/3 of inning left in the season at this point) opened the 9th and also retired Prado (+14) and Lindor. Brad Zeigler got the last out to earn his 10th save, but the Browns decision to use Hart in this game would come at a heavy cost in game 3. Browns 4/11/0 Plague 1/6/3

Game 3: Montgomery v Duffy. The Browns brought Montgomery back on 1 day of rest after his relief stint in game 1, it was the first of many mistakes in this game by the Sharts. But that all came later. First, the Browns got an unearned run in the 1st, 2 runs in the 2nd and 3 unearned runs in the 3rd, including a Fowler HR, to stake Monty to a 6-0 lead and chase Duffy. In the 3rd the Plague loaded the bases with no outs on 2 singles and a walk. They then got a Sac Fly, a single and a triple to cut the lead to 6-4. Fowler led off the 6th and Tomlinson walked but then there was a rare-play rain delay. After the delay Dozier made it 7-4 with an RBI single. Montgomery gave up a leadoff homer to Pado in the 6th but got out of the inning still up 7-5. Bush and Strop kept the Plague off the board in the 7th and 8th but with Hart not available the Browns turned to Zeigler for the 3rd in the game in a row in the 9th. Lindor singled and Wieters got a 31 hitting-and- running to make it 1st and 3rd. Escobar pinch ran for Wieters and swiped 2nd before Buxton tied it up with a single of Cody Allen. Allen got the next 3 out with Buxton on 2nd after he also took 2nd. The Browns went 1-2-3 in the 10th. In the bottom half, Allen issued a 1-out walk and Tony Watson gave up a walk off 2-run jack to Lindor. Plague 9/11/3 Browns 7/7/0.

Browns finish up 47-43.

After making 37 errors in the first 36 games the Browns made just 28 in the last 54.

Full season stats and observations will be sent out later this week.

The Plague vs. Speakers

Last year’s championship contenders continued their rivalry in mid-May.

Game 1 – Each team uses 3 pitchers in the final inning to decide this close contest. Kris Bryant gets the Speakers on the board early with a 1st inning RBI ground out and a 3rd inning 2-run HR (his first of the season!). During both innings, Mookie Betts (3-4, 3-D, 3-R) scores.

The Plague score candlesticks in the 4th and 6th on ground ball RBIs by Francisco Lindor and Paul Goldschmidt. The Speakers answer in the 6th as Carlos Gonzalez legs out a lead off double. Bryant grounds to 2nd and Anthony Rizzo lifts a sac fly to center for a 4-2 lead.

In the bottom of the 8th, Betts doubles with 1 out to chase starter Tanner Roark. Lefty Kyle Ryan faces pinch hitter Yoenis Cespedes. Cespy singles home Betts. After Bryant lines out to 3rd, Rizzo doubles home Cespedes (turned back HR) to chase Ryan.

With a 6-2 lead, Carlos Martinez starts the 9th, but quickly finds himself pitching from the stretch. Lindor singles. Goldy grounds out. Max Kepler gets those 2 runs back with a 2-run home run.

Pinch hitter Alcides Escobar reaches 2nd on a Rizzo error. Jeremy Jeffress comes in and walks Alex Bregman, which puts the tying run on base. Billy Hamilton hits a fly ball to center (a turned back hit). Escobar tags and takes 3rd.

Enter Joe Blanton to face Carlos Santana representing the go-ahead run. Blanton gets Santana to chase strike 3 to end the game, 6-4.

W – C. Martinez (3-1); L – Roark; S – Blanton (2)

Game 2 – Aaron Sanchez is the star of the game, hurling a CG, 5-0 victory, and allowing just 4 singles.

The Plague score in the 2nd on Matt Wieters’ 2-out 2-run double. Jason Kipnis connects with a 2-run blast in the 3rd. Bregman triples home Wieters with the exclamation point in the 4th.

This marks Jake Arrieta’s first clunker of the year (11 H, 5 ER, HR). The shutout marks the 5th of the season (in 22 games) suffered by the Speakers, who never touch 3rd base.

W – A. Sanchez; L – Arrieta (4-1)

Game 3 – Another Speakers’ scoreless streak climbs to 18 innings as Marco Estrada pitches another 4-hit CG shutout. If you’re counting, that’s 6 times the Speakers have been blanked in 23 games.

Early RBI singles by Goldschmidt and Lindor are all that’s needed for The Plague to pocket a 2-0 win. Jeremy Hellickson scatters 8 hits and allows just 1 ER in the tough luck loss.

W – Estrada; L – Hellickson (3-3)

Game 4 – In a carbon copy of Game 3’s 1st inning, a Speaker error and Goldy RBI single give The Plague the early lead. Joe Ross battles to keep the margin to 1 run, (which would have been enough the past two days).

Manny Machado finally snaps the Speakers’ 21-innings without scoring, blasting a 4th inning 2-run HR, his first of the season. After Wieters ties it up with a sac fly in the bottom half, the Speakers rope 3 doubles to score another pair in the 5th.

Santana homers to start the bottom half. The 4-3 nail biter goes quickly in the late innings. Only the Speakers offer a 9th inning threat: 2nd and 3rd with 1 out. Two pop ups leave the 1-run margin.

Blanton pitches a 1-2-3 9th to secure the 4-3 win and the series split.

W – Ross (1-1); L – Jose Fernandez; S – Blanton (3)
