Warpigs 3, Wahoos 1

Cards and dice. All games played at The BallPork.

Game 1 - Warpigs win 3-2 - It was all tied at 2 going to the bottom of the 9th, a half inning that included a pinch hitter, a pinch runner, a sacrifice bunt attempt, a sacrifice bunt attempt after the batter had 2 strikes, a hit and run attempt, a stolen base after the batter missed the pitch on the H&R, and finally a walk off double by the guy who missed the pitch before. Pedro Strop (1-1) struck out the only batter he faced but was in the right place at the right time and got credit for his first win. Yadier Molina hit the walk off double.

Game 2 - Warpigs win 6-2 - The Wahoos' Jordan Zimmermann was acosted in the first inning, giving up 6 consecutive singles after 2 were out. That 1st inning 5-spot was all the Pigs and Michael Wacha (9-4) needed. Wacha gave up only a single in 5 innings of shutout ball.

Game 3 - Warpigs win 3-2 - Another close game, another Pig win. R.A. Dickey went 6 innings and was hurt only by Kyle Seager who doubled and homered off of him. Jayson Werth went 2-3 with 2 RBI for the Pigs. Pedro Strop came on with the bases loaded and 2 outs in the 9th to get Dustin Pedroia out and earn his 8th save.

Game 4 - Wahoos win 4-3. Jordan Zimmermann overcame his last start and outdueled Lance Lynn to get the Wahoos back in the win column. The difference turned out to be an unearned run the Wahoos scored in the 7th after Adrian Beltre made an error. Jake Smolinski had a pinch hit homer, his 1st, in the 8th inning, but it was the last base runner the Pigs had.
