Warpigs 3, Tweeners 2

Games played via TeamViewer.

6/30 @ The BallPork - Warpigs win 4-2. Martin Prado broke a scoreless tie in the 4th with a 2-out rbi single. Francisco Cervelli then followed with a 2-run double. That was enough for Garrett Richards (4-3), who went 7 innings. Four relievers combined to go the last 2 innings, with Brandon Maurer getting his 3rd save of the year. Nellie Cruz hit a 2-run homer in the 6th for the only Tweener runs. Drew Smyly went the distance in the loss, striking out 13 and allowing only 5 hits. The Tweeners were held to 4 hits.

7/1 @ The BallPork - Warpigs win 3-1. Martin Prado and Ender Inciarte both took King Felix deep. Mike Leake (7-3) got the win with last out help from Maurer. The Tweeners were held to 5 hits.

8/12 @ The Hoover Dome - Tweeners win 8-3. The new park helped the Tweener bats light up. Nelson Cruz and Zack Cozart combined to go 5-8 with 2 homers and 7 RBI. Felix Hernandez went 7.1 for the win. Jaime Garcia (7-3) took it on the chin. Jason Kipnis had 3 hits for the Pigs.

8/13 @ The Hoover Dome - Tweeners win 3-2. The Tweeners, with the help of another Cruz homer, scored 3 times in the 2nd inning off of Adam Wainwright (4-1). The six Tweener relievers combined to hold the lead. The Pigs threatened several times - including a missed 1-18 BP homer - but 5 of the relievers got credit for holds and the last one, Francisco Rodriguez, got the save. Robbie Ray, who went 5 innings, got the win. Darrin Ruf went 2-3 with a homer for the Pigs.

8/14 @ The Hoover Dome - Warpigs win 6-1. Garrett Richards (5-3) again stifled the Tweener bats, holding them to 5 hits. A.J. Pollock went 3-5 with a double, a homer, and a stolen base. He scored 2 and knocked in 2. Sonny Gray took the loss for the Tweeners. Andre Ethier homered for the only Tweener run.

Both teams remain in first place in their divisions, but the Tweener lead over the Sidewinders is down to a half game.
