Round 2 - DVs vs Tweeners

The winner advances to play the Rhinos in the World Series.

Game 1 @ Propeller Park - DVs win 6-0. Jered Weaver throws a complete game, 5-hitter for the shutout. Mike Stanton hit 2 doubles. "Said the DV manager, "I think my goal this series will be to NOT use a single reliever. Or maybe to NOT allow a run. I can't decide. Both maybe. After all, I can do pretty much whatever I want against this team."

Game 2 @ Propeller Park - DVs win 11-9. Ian Kinsler hit two home runs, including an 8th inning grand slam to bring the DVs from behind to win game 2. Matt Holliday also homered twice for the DVs. Four different Tweeners homered.

Game 3 @ The HooverDome - Tweeners win 3-1. Gio Gonzalez allows only 1 hit over 6 innings.

Game 4 @ The HooverDome - Tweeners win 3-2. DVs get to D.Hudson for 2 in the first but that is all the Tweener pitchers allow. Tweeners score 1 in the fourth and 2 in the seventh on a 2-run homer by Hundley. Romo picks up the win in relief while Hanranhan collects the save. Weaver takes the loss.

Game 5 @ The HooverDome - Tweeners win 13-6. The DVs draw first blood, scoring 2 in the second off of King Felix, but the Tweeners come back with a vengence scoring 8 in the bottom half of the inning chasing Halladay and sending the Tweeners to a game 5 win 13 - 6. Halladay is saddled with the loss while the King picks up the win. Tweeners homer three times in the 2nd inning - the last one a Grand Salami hit by Morse. Venable hits three homers for the Tweeners, Hundley hits two homers and Victorino knocks one as well for the Tweeners. 6 RBI for Venable! DV hitters hit three Homers in a losing cause. The Tweeners are one win away from the World Series!

Game 6 @ Propeller Park - DVs win 6-4. The Tweeners start the scoring with a run in the top of the first. The DVs answer in the bottom half with a run of their own. The lead went back and forth from there. The Tweeners scored 1 in the 3rd. The DVs scored 2 in the 5th. The Tweeners scored 2 in the 7th. The DVs scored 2 in their half of the 7th. The DVs then added a run in the eighth to round out the scoring. Clippard picks up the win for the DVs while Bard gets the save. Oliver takes the loss for the Tweeners. The Tweeners are one win away from the World Series!

Game 7 @ Propeller Park - A game 7 for the ages! An epic battle with D.Hudson starting for the Tweeners and Weaver taking the mound for the DVs. Both teams break out with 4-run first innings. Zobrist hits a Grand Slam for the Tweeners in the first while Ramirez hits a 3-run shot for the DVs! Hundley hits a 2-run blast for the Tweeners in the second inning, Hundley's 5th Homer of the series! The Tweeners plate another run in the third taking a 7-4 lead. Stanton homers for the DVs in the fourth inning to cut the lead to 7-5.  It was still 7-5 entering the bottom of the ninth when Hanrahan allowed a lead off  homer to McCann. Granderson walked and scored the tying run on a Holliday double. Oliver came in for the Tweeners and salvaged a tie, sending the game into extra innings. Curtis Granderson ended the series in historic fashion in the 11th inning with a walkoff 2-run blast off Oliver.  Madson, the last available pitcher for the DVs, earned the win in relief for the DVs. The DVs move on to the World Series against the Rhinos. The Tweeners are one win away from the World Series!
