Last game of series and season for Juggs and punks . We let my 9 year old son roll the whole game for both of us . He rolled more doubles and better than we both did the whole series lol . Punks win 11-6 . Punks had 13 hits Juggs had 6 hits . Buehler hit 3 batters in two innings. Juggs finished 40 -44, punks finish 44-40.
Just some fun notes from last series of 6 games with punks . Punks hit 14 homers 12 good . Juggs hit 11 homer 10 good . A huge note and a big reason why the Juggs only won 2 games . Juggs lost 10 0 ‘s to either pitcher grade or rolling a second column single . Glasnow in his two games actually converted 5 0’s to a 7. Glasnow the only starter I saw all year with an HBO rating stopped 3HBP , 2 of which in the same at bat . Edman had a great series for the Juggs going 7/26 with 3 homers a triple and a double, 6 rbi all from the lead off spot in 6 games . He also was a victim of glasnow losing 2 0’s to him . Juggs had 5 error in 6 games 3 made by pitchers . Edman unfortunately made 2 one at second and one at LF. Means in first game of away series pitched a 9 inning complete game win only one run allowed a homer , 3hits , 1 bb, 8k . This was one of the most enjoyable series for me all year. all the games were competitive with many crazy plays and lucky rolls.
