Wahoos and Zaps have arrived. They're about to start.
Game 1 - Wahoos (Arrieta) at Zaps (Kluber)
Zapper: This is the first time I've touched these cards since the draft.
Zapper: If I lose this first game, I'll need a nap before I continue.
The Zap 20-sided is the size of a golf ball.
Not sure of the score, but it sounds like two slow pitch softball teams are playing.
Okay, 6-3 Zaps going to the 5th.
6-5 going to the bottom of the 5th.
Try to keep up... Zaps lead 8-5 thru 5. Big blow was a Machado homer one batter after Pedroia (2b-1e4) boots a grounder.
Hoos leave em loaded in the 8th. Down 9-5.
Hoos strand 2 more in the 9th.
Zaps win 9-5.

Wahoos win 10-4. They take 2 games to 1 lead.
Game 4 - Zaps (Greinke) at Wahoos (HAlvarez)
Zaps score 4 early runs.
Okay, it's 4-2 in the middle of the 5th. Not just the middle of the inning, but the MIDDLE of the inning. I mean,there is a guy on base. At this point, the Zapper realizes that his text answer from several days ago that said he didn't care what drinks I had was maybe NOT the best answer... because I didn't get any beer. So right now there is a delay as the Wahoo takes the Zapper to buy beer. I hope he charges him Uber prices.
Ian Desmond hits a 3-run homer and the Wahoos win 7-4.
The Wahoos lead the series 3-1 and can wrap it up at home in game 5.
Game 5 - Zaps (Kluber) at Wahoos (Arrieta)
