Wahoos 5, Drillers 0

Wahoos stun the world with a 5-0. Our offense was on point for a change.

April 23
Saunders (2e1) commits a 2-base error in the bottom of the first. Norris and Davis hit back to back homers in the 4th. Longoria hit a 3-run homer off Melancon in the 8th to close the gap to 4-3. Wahoos hang on by stranding Puig at 2nd in the ninth.
April 24
Drillers score 2 in the first. A DP is the only thing that didn't make it worse. Wahoos fell behind 4-0. A 2-run homer from Desmond closed it to 5-4 in the 8th. Neil Walker lets a 2-star single through as he was holding the speedy Aoki in the bottom of the ninth. It was Dustin Pedroia's 4th hit. No DH for the Wahoos as we head to the 10th. Pedroia comes thru with another tying single in the top of the 11th. In the 14th, all hell broke loose. Yasiel homered in the top of the inning. The Wahoos tie on a flyb? that Beltran barely scores on. Brings up O'Day to bat (out of pinch hitters). Catcher X brings up a game-winning wild pitch. Wahoos 8-7. Pedroia finishes 6-for-7 with 3 RBIs. Buster Posey was 4-for-6.
July 15
Wahoos erupt for 5 runs off James Shields and Alex Torres in the 2nd inning. The rout was on after Aoki, Desmond and Ianetta went deep in the 5th. O'Day comes in for the final 3 to help save some Zimmerman innings. Wahoos win, 13-0.
July 16
Anibal Sanchez and David Carpenter combine for a 3-0 victory. Drillers bats have gone silent. Pedroia stays hot with a homer. Ianetta hits another one out.
July 17
Wahoos hit 3 homers in a row again (Norris, Davis, Morales) to take a 5-2 lead. Verlander out 13 in the complete win. 

Wahoos hit .319 in the series with 14 homers. Pedroia was 12-for-24. Ianetta (.375) and Desmond (.316) both homer 3 times. But the most stunning thing is the 2 shutouts and 2.52 ERA the team compiled.
