At The BallPork
7/19 - Warpigs win 3-0. Adam Wainwright (25-7) threw the complete game shutout, allowing 2 hits and no walks, striking out 6. Justin Morneau hit a solo homer.
7/20 - Tweeners win 2-1. That Damn Pedro Strop! He blew another save, giving up a solo homer to George Springer that tied the game in the 6th and a triple to Zack Cozart in the 7th. Cozart scored the winning run, making That Damn Pedro Strop (1-3) the losing pitcher. Matt Wieters' leadoff homer in the 1st was the only run the Pigs scored against Hisashi Iwakuma and three relievers. Santiago Casilla got the final out for the save.
7/21 - Warpigs win 3-2. Robinson Cano brought the Pigs from behind with a 6th inning 2-run homer off of Shelby Miller, who had otherwise pitched well. Sean Doolittle (4-1), who bailed out That Damn Pedro Strop an inning earlier, got the win. Joe Smith got the final four outs - 3 on Ks - to earn his 22nd save.
At the Hoover Dome
8/30 - Tweeners win 3-1. The Pigs got to King Felix for a 1st inning run, but missed the opportunity to score more - and never scored again. The Tweener runs came on 1 swing of the bat in the 5th inning. After R.A. Dickey retired the first two batters, he surrendered 3 straight singles to load the bases, bringing up Nelson Cruz with the bases loaded and 2 outs. In to face him... That Damn Pedro Strop. I know, I know... but he was DUE! Well, I thought he was due. He was not. Cruz rolled 3-6, which is DO8fbB. He rolled the 8. The hit cleared the bases and gave the Tweeners the win. Felix got the win, Casilla the save, Dickey (17-14) the loss. Because the runs scored in the 5th, TDP Strop was not given a blown save.
8/31 - Warpigs win 4-1. 4 runs! A blow out! A smorgasbord of offense. Morneau homered, and Lance Lynn (17-8) went 6 innings for the win. Joe Smith went 9-up, 9-down for the perfect 3-inning save, his 23rd.
