Warpigs 4, DVs 3

All games played at The BallPork via Netplay.

5/19 - Warpigs win 7-3. Adam Wainwright (21-7) went 7 innings, allowing only 4 hits and no walks for the win. Justin Morneau had 3 hits and knocked in 4.

5/20 - DVs win 2-1. Albert Pujols had a 2-out, 2-run hit in the 7th for the win. The Pigs have had only 4 blown saves all year, but 3 have been by Pedro Strop and 2 of those came against the DVs. Robinson Cano homered in the 1st.

5/21 - DVs win 7-6. J.J. Hardy and Dexter Fowler, the 8-9 hitters for the DVs, combined to go 5-8, with 3 runs and 4 RBI. The Pigs ralled late, with rare homers from Jake Smolinski and Jon Jay (his first of the year), but came up short.

7/27 - Warpigs win 1-0 in 13 innings. Some batting averages took a beating in this one. Stephen Strasburg threw a complete game for the DVs, as the Pigs kept rolling 4-9 and 6-9, neither of which involves putting the ball in play. Garrett Richards allowed 5 hits and 4 walks in his 5 innings, but somehow kept anyone from crossing the plate. The DVs had 2 runners on in each of the first 4 innings. Joe Smith (3-0) got the win in relief, going an amazing 5.2 innings. In the bottom of the 13th, Lorenzo Cain led off with a single and was bunted over by Yadier Molina. Robby Cano singled, but Cain was forced to hold up at 3rd. Jayson Werth sent the Pig faithful home happy with a walk-off single.

7/28 - Warpigs win 7-2. Cano, Morneau, and Victor Martinez homered to back the pitching of Wainwright (22-7), who went 7 innings for the win.

7/29 - DVs win 4-2. Matt Holliday hit a 3-run homer off of R.A. Dickey in the 2nd inning, and that was enough to support the pitching of Drew Hutchison. Dexter Fowler added an insurance run late with a solo shot. Tyler Clippard got the save.

7/30 - Warpigs win 2-0. Michael Wacha (10-5) finished the regular season with a bang. He hit the floor after 5.2 innings of 1-hit ball. The bullpen allowed only 1 more hit for the Pigs' 100th win of the season and their 26th shutout. Joe Smith, fresh after 2 days off following his marathon performance, got the last 4 outs for his 20th save. The Pigs only had 2 hits themselves, but 1 of them was a 1st inning 2-run blast by VMart.
