Wahoos 5, Killer Bees 0

Game 1
Tehren vs. Zimmerman
Bees jump out to a quick 1-0 lead in the second. Simmons homered in the third. This doesn't look so good. Wahoos tied it 5-5 in the eighth thanks in part to a Seager 2-run homer and a bases-loaded walk by Pedroia. Each team scored once in the ninth before sending it to extra innings. So....we move ahead to the 19th inning. Bees score a pair. Wahoos fight back with two outs and the winner is an x-chance to Solarte (4) at SS. He allows a 2-single and Wahoos survive. Blanks, btw, pinch hit a homer in the ninth. He ended up with 5 at-bats. Wahoos win, 9-8.

Game 2
Wood vs. Alvarez
Both teams start fast. Wahoos lead, 3-1, after 1. Homers from Desmond, Turner, Ianetta and Davis send the Wahoos to the lead by the end of the 5th. Wahoos get strong relief from Morin and win, 10-6.

Game 3
Minor vs. Alvarez
Wahoos bats stay hot as Encarnacion hits a grand slam in the bottom of the second. Later in the inning the wheels started to come off as Freeman allowed a single and error. Wahoos lead, 9-1, after two innings. Wahoos cruised home for a 12-4 victory.

Game 4
Teheran vs. Eovaldi
Wahoos knock Julio out in the second and score 4 runs in the second highlighted by Desmond's homer. Trumbo hits a 3-run bomb in the fourth. Jackson gives the Wahoos some breathing room with a 2-run triple in the eighth. Wahoos win, 8-3.

Game 5
Wood vs. Gee
Wahoos score 3 in the second despite Encarnacion and Davis leaving the bases loaded. Wahoos explode for 8 runs in the sixth. To say we were due is an understatement after getting torched by the Inmates (lose 7 of 8) and Warpigs (lose 3 of 4) in the last 10 days. Wahoos hold on to win 11-2. Our best series of the year. Period. Nothing else close.
