Game 1 - Warpigs win 10-5. The Snakes scored 4 in the 1st inning and another in the 2nd, but that's all they could muster. Prince Fielder and Lorenzo Cain each had 4 hits, Jason Kipnis added 3 more, and Jake Long homered twice. Jaime Garcia (3-1) recovered from the rough start to earn the win.

Game 2 - Warpigs win 2-0. Rich Hill (1-0) made his season debut, throwing 5 shutout innings. Antonio Bastardo got his 2nd save of the year. Jarrett Parker hit his first homer of the season.

Game 6 - Warpigs win 4-2. The Pigs put together 4 consecutive hits in the 5th inning to break open a 1-1 game. Jaime Garcia (5-1) went 6.2 for the win. Tyler Clippard recorded the final out for his first save.

Game 7 - Warpigs win 6-5 in 11 innings. It was Rich Hill day again, but with a 5-0 lead, he came out after 5 innings of 1-hit ball only to watch the bullpen surrender the lead. In the 11th, Martin Prado hit a homer off of Craig Kimbrel (solid N-HR at 6-11) to pull out the Pig's 7th straight win over the Snakes (Or as the Fungo Boy said, "10 straight going back to last year's World Series.")

Game 8 - Warpigs win 8-7. Make that 8 straight. A 4-run 1st against Jon Lester got the Pigs off to a fast start, but the Snakes came back and took a 6-5 lead in the 6th. Jarrett Parker, though, clubbed a pinch hit, 2-run triple in the 8th to put the Pigs ahead to stay. Antonio Bastardo got his 3rd save. Brandon Maurer (1-1) got the win in relief.
