Warpigs 3, FFTs 1

Via TeamViewer. All games at The BallPork.

May 30 - Game 1 of Double Header - Warpigs win 7-6 in 12 innings. In the opening game of the Memorial Day Double Header, the Warpigs came from behind to win their 4th straight against the FFTs this season. Errors by Michael Wacha and Prince Fielder led to 4 unearned runs by the FFTs in the 4th inning, but the Warpigs scored 3 in the bottom of the 4th to get within 1. Lorenzo Cain doubled in A.J. Pollock in the 8th inning to tie the game. Then in the 12th, Ian Kinsler delivered the walk-off hit, singling in Yadier Molina. Darren O'Day (1-1) got the win for his inning of work.

Between games of the double header, the Warpigs had their Ring Ceremony for their 2015 championship. Team captain Yadier Molina said, "It just made sense to have the ceremony today. There were 27 of the 30 members of last year's squad here today. 9 playing for us, 8 playing for them, and 10 who suck so bad they are out of baseball this year. We were only missing 3 guys."

May 30 - Game 2 of Double Header - Warpigs win 4-3. The FFTs scored 2 first inning runs, forcing the Warpigs to come from behind again. The Pigs scored 2 in the 2nd to tie the game, and in the 6th, Adeiny Hechevarria, A.J. Pollock, and Lorenzo Cain all hit doubles for the other 2 runs. Jake Peavy (5-2) got the win, and Pedro Strop earned his 8th save.

May 31 - Warpigs win 7-2. The FFTs again had a 2-run first inning, but that would be all they got. Jake Lamb blasted a 2-run homer, and Garrett Richards (6-3) settled down to go 6 innings for the win. Tyler Clippard went the final 3 innings for his 2nd save.

June 1 - FFTs win 3-1. Joc Pederson homered, J.T. Realmuto had 3 hits, and Delino Deshields twice plated runs with RBI base hits. John Lackey went 6 innings for the win. Jake Diekman, Sam Dyson, and Adam Warren each threw an inning, holding off any hopes the Pigs had of coming back for a 4th straight game.
