Warpigs 5, SuperGoofs 0

The Warpigs aren't as hot as the Inmates, but they clinched the BUD with this sweep.

All games at The BallPork.

5/13 - Warpigs win 6-2. Victor Martinez had 3 hits, and a 3-run homer by Adrian Beltre took a 3-2 lead to a 6-2 lead in the 8th. R.A. Dickey (17-13) went 5 innings for the win. Sean Doolittle pitched the final 4 innings for his 9th save.

5/14 - Warpigs win 10-2. A rare offensive outburst by the Pigs was the result of 4 home runs. Robinson Cano, Jayson Werth, Troy Tulowitzki, and Adrian Beltre all went deep to support the pitching of Garrett Richards (18-4).

5/15 - Warpigs win 6-0. The Pigs hit 6 doubles, and Jayson Werth added a homer. Adam Wainwright (23-7) and Sean Doolittle combined for the shutout.

7/22 - Warpigs win 3-2. The Goofs held a 2-1 lead in the 7th, but Jake Smolinski doubled off of James Russell, was bunted to 3rd, and scored on an e6 by Alexei Ramirez. Then in the 8th, 2 walks and an RBI-single by VMart gave the Pigs the lead. Doolittle (3-1) got the win, and Joe Smith recorded the final 2 outs for his 21st save. Lucas Duda homered for the Goofs.

An interesting Hal incident... In the 9th inning of the 4th game, the Goofs were down 3-2 with 1 out when Cuddyer singled. Josh Hamilton was called on to pinch hit. Joe Smith was on the mound with no better options in the pen. So Joe closes his eyes and fires one in. Hal chose this moment to give Hamilton the hit and run sign. He rolled 5-12 (2b-x). The result was a game-ending double play. Hit and run? Seems like an odd time to try that.
