Bees get hot at the right times and DVs learn that resting the starters to avoid overusage concerns (Stanton records 0 ABs in the series) isn’t a way to stay in contention. Here is the summary:
Game 1 – Bees win 7-5 as Freeman hits 2 home runs and drives in all 7. One would think we could find the “IBB” button somewhere around here…
Game 2 – TheBaldOne Jimenez twirls a 4 hit shutout as the Bees win 4-0
Game 3 – DVs are down 6-1 in the 5th, only to rally against the soft underbelly of the Bees bullpen and go on to win 8-7
Game 4 – Pujols has 3 hits and McCann and Seager hit home runs as the DVs win 5-3
Game 5 - Bees score 6 in the 8th against a hapless John “Let me introduce you to my homely” Niese and win going away- 11-5.
