Warpigs and Inmates Trade

The Pigs and Inmates pulled the trigger on a fairly big deal today. The Warpigs are sending Ender Inciarte, Archie Bradley, and both their 1st and 2nd round draft picks to Waco for Aaron Judge and a reserve pick.

DVs 4, Warpigs 3

Games played via TeamViewer.

First 4 games at The BallPork

Game 1 - Warpigs win 5-1. Adam Wainwright (10-15) made the most of his last 6.2 innings to become the first (and only) Pig pitcher to reach 10 wins. Jake Lamb had a triple and a homer, and drove in 3.

Game 2 - Warpigs win 4-1. Kendall Graveman (4-15) went 7 innings for the win. Raisel Iglesias earned his 21st save.

Game 3 - DVs win 11-1. Anthony DeSclafani (9-6) pitched well for 5 innings, but hit the floor trailing 2-1. The Pigpen then imploded, thanks mostly to 2 more errors by Starlin Castro. 7 of the 11 DV runs were unearned. Brandon Moss went 4-5 with 2 doubles and a homer. He drove in 3. Bartolo Colon went 5 innings for the win. He and a couple of relievers held the Pigs to 3 hits.

Game 4 - Warpigs win 7-4. J.T. Realmuto had a triple and a homer, and Carlos Rodon (6-11) somehow managed to not get killed in 5 innings work. The highlight of the game came late. After the DVs had crawled within 6-4, Francisco Liriano was called on to pinch hit, and smacked a long solo HR into Mr. Douglas's corn field. It was Liriano's 2nd homer of the year, and the 5th by Warpig pitchers this year. Iglesias earned save 22.

Last 3 games at DV Park by Viagra

Game 5 - DVs win 11-5. Archie Bradley (innings 1-2) and Michael Wacha (innings 3-4) combined to allow 11 runs (all earned) on 12 hits, 6 walks, and 3 homers in just 4 innings. After that it was just a matter of making sure everybody got to play. The Warpigs also hit 3 homers.

Game 6 - DVs win 6-4. Corey Seager homered twice and the DV pen held off a Warpig rally.

Game 7 - DVs win 5-3. A desperate attempt by the Warpigs to avoid 100 losses collapsed in vain. Reliever Raisel Iglesias entered the game with 2 outs in the 1st inning and pitched valiantly for 6.2 innings, keeping the game close. The DVs tied the game in the 7th on a Mike Moutakas homer; then scored 2 in the bottom of the 8th to wrap it up. Yasmany Tomas homered twice for the Pigs to wrest the team HR title away from Logan Forsythe. Unfortunately, he missed a 1-17 chance in the 9th that ended the game - and the season.
