Sidewinders 3, Zaps 2

Game 1-Nick Hundley started the scoring in the top of the second when he 
blasted a shot deep into the left field stands. Rendon walked to open 
the third and then Starling Marte allowed a two base single and an error 
on a x-chart chance to tie the game. The Snakeman refused to bring in 
the infield to score Russell Martin from third to put the good guys 
ahead. Ortiz and Belt hit back-to-back two out doubles in the sixth to 
tie it up. Rondon came on to face lefties and a backwards righty and got 
creamed giving up two runs in the eighth. Wade Davis came on for a 
two-inning save.

Game 2-A single, double, and sac fly put the Zaps ahead 1-0 after two 
innings. In the third Bautista walked and scored on a 1-12 chance on 
Dickerson’s double. In the seventh, Cutch singled and D’Arnaud’s pinch 
hit single sent Andrew to third and weaken Chapman. Allen promptly gave 
up a double to Machado scoring Cuthc, and a two-run single to Moreland 
that put the good guys ahead 5-0. All the while Hamels spun a one-hitter 
through seven. Giles came in after a Gregorius single in the eighth and 
nailed down the last five outs for the home team combined shut out.

Game 3-Bautista tripled and Piscotty drove him in with a ground out in

Snakes used two singles, a walk, and a ground out to score two runs in 
the eighth. Martin and Moreland hit back-to-back taters off Miller and 
Davis in the bottom of the frame to tie it up. Machado’s two-out dinger 
off Wade in the bottom of the ninth gave the good guys a stunning 4-3 

Game 4-Bautista turned an Ortiz flyball into a double, and Brantley’s 
single made the Zaps pay in the top of the fourth as the out of towners 
took a 1-0 lead. Bautista blasted an Earl Weaver special followed an out 
later by Piscotty’s solo tater to put the good guys back on top 4-1 
after five. Some really shaking fielding by Blanco at short set the 
table for Hundley’s three-run shot to put the Snakes in front 5-4 in the 
top of the sixth. Goldie’s bases empty swat knotted the score after 
eight. Miller and Davis walked the bases full in the home half of the 
night, but a ground set the stage for Rendon to miss a ballpark chance 
at a granny  to end the threat. Belt scored from first on a 1-12 chance 
after a double by Brantley. After Chapman gave up a triple and a walk 
Kimbrel got the save in the 13 inning thriller.

Game 5- Two walks and two singles plated a pair for the Snakes in the 
first. Aaron Altherr’s two run tater in the bottom of the frame knotted 
the score. The Snakes used three singles and a walk to go ahead 4-2 in 
the fourth. In the bottom half of the frame Goldie doubled and 
Piscotty’s single drove him in and got the good guys within one. With 
two-out in the seventh, Cutch hit a double and Altherr scored him on a 
single rare play where he slipped round first and Brantley threw him out 
trying to get back to the bag from leftfield. The game was tied through 
the 14th inning when Franklin Gutierrez doubled and with two outs 
Longorie doubled him in.
