Warpigs 9, Buckeyes 1

Buckeye manager after game 4: "Buckeyes are on the clock for pick 1."

Game 5 - Warpigs win 6-0. Peavy (4-2) limited the Buckeyes to 4 hits in the complete game shutout.

Game 6 - Warpigs win 6-5. The Buckeyes should have won this one. The Shriveled Testicle Gang led 4-0 after 3 innings, and still led 5-2 going to the bottom of the 7th. But the Warpigs scratched out 2 runs in the 7th to get the Pigs within 1 at 5-4. In the bottom of the 8th, after Raisel Iglesias struck out the first two batters, Ender Inciarte singled. Up came pinch hitter Jarrett Parker, who doubled to put runners at 2nd and 3rd. Martin Prado was intentionally walked to get to Adeiny Hechevarria. In the clutch, just about his only hope was a 1-8 roll... which I called for... and which he rolled. The 2-run single gave the Pigs the lead. Pedro Strop got the last 2 outs in the 9th for his 5th save of the year. Mike Leake (6-2) struggled for 8 innings, but got the win.

Game 7 - Warpigs win 5-0. Garrett Richards got within 4 outs of a no-hitter, but Marcell Ozuna singled (open triangle, 1-19) to end the no-no bid and send Richards to the showers. Pomeranz recorded the final 4 outs to finish off the 1-hitter.

Game 8 - Buckeyes win 4-1. J.A. Happ finally got the Buckeyes into the win column, with help from Vincent Velasquez. The game was 2-1 in the 8th, but J.J. Hardy hit a 2-run homer off of losing pitcher Michael Wacha (5-1) to ice the game for the Buckeyes.

Game 9 - Warpigs win 6-0. Adam Wainwright surrendered a lead off single to Chris Coghlan in the 1st inning. That was the only hit the Buckeyes would get. Wainwright (4-0) went 5 innings; Pomeranz went the last 4. A.J. Pollock provided the offense, going 3-3 with a homer, a double, and a stolen base.

Game 10 - Warpigs win 4-1. Jaime Garcia (7-2) with the win; Pedro Strop the save.

The Buckeyes hit .147 for the series, scoring only 16 runs in 10 games. The Warpigs stole 20 bases.

Here's an odd stat... The Warpigs and Buckeyes have the same number of wins, but the Buckeyes have played 90 more games.
