Wahoos 6, DVs 5

Tons of homers and tons of shaky pitching.

Mavs 3, Nads 2

The Rangers game is over and I have the house to myself.  Looks like a good time to get the Nads out and play for a bit.
4/12 Chris Tillman vs. Yovani Gallardo.  The Mavs are hoping that Tillman’s incident with stadium security will shake him up.  To the credit of the Mavs crack security team (and a few phone calls from member of GLAD), the Dior evening gown that Tillman was wearing into the stadium will be returned after the game.  The Nads draw first blood on an Upton X two base hit and error (no RBI for Todd Frazier who can be seen glaring at the press box).  Frazier scores on a Calhoun fly ball B and the Mavs make two more errors both by e8’s so clearly Frazier was destined to score.  But still no RBI.  The Mavs counter with two runs without the benefit of a homer.  Manager Paul Waner faints breaking his Jim Beam bottle.  A bunch of walks load the bases for the Mavs and Jason Heyward gets a single 1-2 to drive in a run.  Nads manager Barack Obama (hey he has to do something new soon) harkens back to his college days and sneaks down the tunnel for some relief.  When he returns he accidently brings in Nick Martinez with the bases loaded and Brad Miller at the plate (who knows what happened in that tunnel).  The Mavs counter with Danny Valencia who gets a two base error off of Todd Frazier.  More glaring at the press box.  Manager Obama brings the infield in while listening to Led Zepplin IV backwards and Lucroy gets a plus hit.  More bad things ensued for the Nads including another error by a now totally out of control Todd Frazier.  Mavs win 12-3.  The Grumpy’s Bail Bonds Player of the Game goes to Jonathan Lucroy who went 3-3 with four RBIs.
4/13 C. J. Wilson vs. Jake Odorizzi.  The first 15,000 fans will receive a collector’s edition Bernice Brewer Bobble Breast figurine (special packaging required for that figure).  The Mavs put up a three spot due largely to a 1-7 clutch hit by Jackie F. Bradley.  In the third Frazier makes another error (he is only an e20 but if the ball comes near him on a hit, we’re going to give him an error apparently) but the Mavs strand the runner at third.  Harper sends Bernice Brewer down the slide with a solo shot in the bottom of the seventh.  Three Mav pitchers combine to throw a three hit shutout striking out six and walking zero.  The Betty’s Brothel Blow of the Game was the omega hit by JF Bradley.  4-0 Mavs.
7/5 Chris Tillman, resplendent in his Vivienne Westwood gown, vs. Cookie Carrasco.  We may bunt some.  We think Tillman’s stilettos might be a disadvantage in the soft turf.  The Mavs put three up in the first again.  The key play was Miguel Montero electing to throw to first to get the batter on a dribbler in front of the plate with the bases loaded and nobody out.  Three unearned runs score in the bottom of the third after an Adrian Gonzalez error (1e7).  I’m glad the Nads didn’t have to see this.  Then in the sixth down 6-0 Barak Obama gives Anthony Gose the steal sign with one out and Gose standing on second.  Hal picks 20 for the split card.  I’m glad the Nads didn’t have to see that.  Harper sends Bernice down the slide and cutting to the chase the Mavs win 8-0 as four pitchers combined to shut the Nads out again.  Harper wins the Grumpy’s Bail Bonds Player of the Game.  Todd Frazier didn’t make an error.
7/6 C. J. Wilson vs. Clay Buchholz.  New Mavs sponsor Viagra is handing out free samples in honor of the effect Buchholz has on bats (6.83 ERA).  Sure enough the Nads strike first stringing together three singles in the first.  1-0 Nads.  2-1 Nads after two as the Nads have actual rallies while the Mavs hit a solo homer (Heyward).  3-1 after three.  In the bottom of the sixth Jackie F. Bradley hits a two out two run homer taking Buchholz off the hook.  A 1-7 clutch hit by Castellanos off Tony Sipp gives the Mavs the lead in the bottom of the seventh.  Alas it was short lived as Miguel Montero hit a two run homer off of Zach Britton on a 3-10 1-9 fly,  Up 5-4 Barak Obama brings in Hector Rondon to close out.  Dozier lets an X chance go through.  A Miller GbC gets Wong to second.  The Mavs pinch hit Lucroy (looking for the clutch hit) but he grounds to second stranding the tying run.  5-4 Nads with Montero winning the Grumpy’s Bail Bonds Player of the Game for going 2-4 with three RBI’s including the game winner.  Frazier made an error in the fourth.
7/7 Mike Fiers vs. Jesse Hahn.  Both pitchers just suck and if the Mavs could hit a homer 1-16 the game would be a blow out by the third but we missed a few so it is 4-3 after three.  The Mavs miss another 1-16 leaving two on in the bottom of the fourth.  The Nads tie it on a 2B X single in the fifth.  4-4.  ARod leads of the bottom of the fifth with a 1-9 straight out solo shot and the Mavs move back on top.  In the top of the eighth the Nads tie it on back to back doubles by Frazier and Dozier off of Mychal Givens.  Both teams miss a chance in the ninth and we go into extra innings.  After the Mavs left two on in the bottom of the eleventh, Adrian Gonzalez homers off of Hunter Strickland in the top of the twelfth.  Chris Davis doubles and Wong hits a one star single.  First and third and one out but we’re stuck with James McCann against Rondon.  Obama plays the corners in.  The Mavs squeeze anyway.  Sac is successful.  On we go to the thirteenth.  This time the Nads get two off of Strickland.  Down two, Kendrick gets an X chart single tiring Rondon (Gose gave it up).  In comes Nick Martinez.  Heyward gets a 3-12 single but Jackie F. Bradley bounds into two.  Harper walks bringing Miller up as the winning run but he grounds to first.  8-6 Nads in 13.  The Grumpy’s Bail Bonds Player of the Game goes to Cesar Ramos who threw five innings of shutout relief.  He didn’t figure in the decision but it wouldn’t have been a Nad win without him.  The Mavs stranded 13 by the way.

Rhinos 7, Inmates 7

Rhinos 7 – Inmates 6 (10 innings – Rhino Reserve): A see-saw match with each team hitting a pair of homers and tallying nine hits. Rather than flaunting power the Rhinos played wuss ball and scored the game-winner in the last of the 10th on a squeeze bunt by Marisnick.

Inmates  9 – Rhinos 4 (Rhino Reserve): Rizzo hit a grand salami while Pineda tossed a complete (albeit ugly) game for the easy Inmate win.
Inmates 3 – Rhinos 0 (Rhino Reserve): A. Jones drove in a pair of runs while four Inmate pitchers threw a shutout.
Inmates 3 – Rhinos 2 (Baptist Bowl): A pitchers’ duel saw the Rhinos collect only two hits. JMart drove in all three Inmate runs.
Rhinos 6 – Inmates 5 (Baptist Bowl): Braun and Bryant both hit three-run taters and an Inmate rally in the bottom of the 9th came up a run shy as the Horned Wonders held on for the win.
Rhinos 8 – LDMF 0 (Baptist Bowl): Brett Lawrie committed three errors in the return of the LDMF. Quintana pitched a complete game travesty for a total Inmate team loss.
Rhinos 2 – LDMF 0 (Baptist Bowl): Inmate suck-city redux.
Inmates 13 – Rhinos 3 (Rhino Reserve): The Inmates came out of their two-game slumber with five homers to crush the Rhinos.
Inmates 9 – Rhinos 1 (Rhino Reserve): Jason Castro hit a pair of homers, including a grand slam, as the Inmates continued their offensive onslaught. Three Inmate pitchers held the Rhinos to four hits.
Rhinos 4 – Inmates 2 (Rhino Reserve): A close game, with Altuve getting caught stealing twice on 1-15 rolls. Shit.
Rhinos 5 – Inmates 3 (Rhino Reserve): A close game, with Altuve getting caught stealing once again on a 1-18 roll. Shit again.
Inmates 1 – Rhinos 0 (Baptist Bowl): In a game that featured a grand total of three hits, a Cargo solo jack in the 6th proved to be the game-winner. Archer pitched a CG gem for the Rhinos, while seven Inmate pitchers allowed only a harmless single to Bryant.
Rhinos 8 – Inmate 4 (Baptist Bowl): A close game was blown open by two-run homers by Bryant and Gordon. Altuve got caught stealing again.
Inmates 2 – Rhinos 1 (Baptist Bowl): Syndergaard pitched a two-hit gem, but one of the hits was a two-run tater by Cespedes.

Zaps 3, Tweeners 2

5/11 – Zaps 8, Tweeners 4 (13 inn).  Max Scherzer struck out 14 batters and Andrew McCutchen jacked one out of the
ballyard and had 3 RBI as the TRISTAN VIVAZAPASTAS defeated the NORM TWEENERS
in 13 innings by a score of 8 to 4 at The Hoover Dome.

The game was deadlocked at 4 after nine full innings.  TRISTAN came out on top
in the 13th inning.  The critical plate appearance was by McCutchen who
helped quiet the crowd when he smacked a three-run homer.  TRISTAN and NORM
each finished the afternoon with 9 hits. 

The victory was credited to Scherzer(5-1) who went the distance, allowing 4
runs. Andrew Chafin(3-5) was charged with the loss in relief.  He pitched 1
inning giving up 3 hits and 1 walk.

Scherzer didn't realize how many strikeouts he was racking up.  When told he
had 14 he was obviously surprised, 'No kidding? Man, I knew that I had a
decent total, but I didn't think I had K'd that many.  Say, that's pretty
good, isn't it?  Even though it did take me 13 effin’ innings.'

5/12 – Tweeners 8, Zaps 5.  Nelson Cruz jacked one out of the ballyard and had 2 RBI and Madison Bumgarner
delivered 6 solid innings at The Hoover Dome where the NORM TWEENERS beat the
TRISTAN VIVAZAPASTAS by the score of 8 to 5.

TRISTAN fell behind quickly as the NORM offense came through in the first
inning plating 2 runs utilizing 4 base hits.  After an out was recorded, Ben
Zobrist keyed the rally when he laced a base-hit.  George Springer got his
chance to keep things going, but he went down on strikes.  Cruz then lined a
single.  Chris Colabello followed next and he lined a one-base hit plating a
run.  Zack Cozart came up to bat and delivered a single, and an error was
also committed, scoring the final run of the inning.  NORM managed 11 hits in
their victory. 

The victory went to Bumgarner(10-5) who went 6 innings, allowing 1 run.

allowing 11 hits and 3 walks in 8 innings.

8/3 – Zaps 3, Tweeners 1.  Max Scherzer dominated striking out 10 NORM batters and right fielder Jose
Bautista cracked a homer and had 2 RBI as the TRISTAN VIVAZAPASTAS topped the
NORM TWEENERS by a score of 3 to 1 at The Hoover Dome.

Scherzer(6-1) put on a good performance.  He didn't allow much, just 6 hits
and 2 walks in 9 innings seeing his ERA drop from 2.54 to 2.33.  Neither team
managed to score after the 3rd inning. 

Sonny Gray(9-8) suffered the loss. Scherzer, as usual, didn't realize how many strikeouts
he was racking up.  When told he had 10 he was obviously surprised, 'No
kidding? Man, I knew that I had a decent total, but I didn't think I had K'd
that many.  Say, that's pretty good, isn't it?'

8/4 – Zaps 5, Tweeners 3.  Russell Martin lofted one into the 'cheap seats' and had 2 RBI as the TRISTAN
VIVAZAPASTAS defeated the NORM TWEENERS by a score of 5 to 3 at The Hoover

innings allowing 8 hits and no walks and was touched for 2 homeruns reducing
his ERA from 5.06 to 4.85.  Both teams ended up with 8 hits on the night.
Brad Ziegler preserved the game for Hamels, recording his his 2nd save. Shelby
Miller(5-6) was the loser.  He pitched 9 innings giving up 8 hits and 6
Wth the win TRISTAN now has a record of 12-7.  With this loss, NORM has a 4-6
record of late, 55-46 overall.

8/5 – Tweeners 6, Zaps 4.  In a close game it was the NORM TWEENERS 6, the TRISTAN VIVAZAPASTAS 4 at The
Hoover Dome.

NORM had the winning rally in the bottom of the 8th inning as they scored 4
runs on 3 base hits.  The key offensive moment was provided by Nelson Cruz
who elicited a roar from the hometown fans when he clubbed a two-run home
run.  Both teams ended up with 7 hits on the afternoon. 

The win was credited to Dalier Hinojosa(3-0) who went 1 inning allowing 1 run.
Hinojosa got relief help from Carson Smith who gained credit for his 13th
save.  Ken Giles(1-2) absorbed the loss in relief.

All games at the Baptist Bowl via CM.

Zaps 9 – Inmates 6: Joey Bats hit the first pitch of the game into the belfry of the neighboring Catholic Church, and things only got worse for the Inmates. Pineda allowed eight runs in the inning before zipping his trousers, leaving the Beakless Chicken Gang in an 8-0 hole before even getting to bat. The Inmates fought back, but shell-shocked is no way to begin a series. Kluber picked up the W, pitching six not particularly effective innings.

Inmates 4 – Zaps 3 (11 innings): Adam Jones hit a two-out solo homer in the bottom of the 9th to send the game into extra-innings, and then doubled home Rizzo with the winning run in the bottom of the 11th to cheat the visiting Pastas out of a victory.

Zaps 7 – Inmates 5: A see-saw match, with the Zaps jumping out to an early 4-0 lead against McHugh. The Inmates scratch back to take a 5-4 lead on a three-run HR by Ramos, only to have Machado hit a two-run tater in the 9th to ice the game for the bad guys.

Zaps 4 – Inmates 1: All runs scored on homers – McCutchen (2-run shot), Goldie and Rendon for the Zaps; Martinez for the Inmates.

The Wahoos defeated both the Warpigs and the Demerit Man today.

Cards and dice at The Reservation

June 3 - Wahoos win 4-3. Jake Arrieta threw the complete game victory, holding the Pigs to 5 hits. The Pigs did manage two homers off of Arrieta, but both were solo shots and neither was a ballpark homer, oddly enough. Jarrett Parker went deep in the 1st, and Andrelton Simmons hit his 2nd homer of the year in the 7th. The big blast, though, was by Wahoo Mikie Mahtook, who hit a 2-run shot in the 3rd inning. Jaime Garcia (10-6) took the loss.

Wahoos 2, Zaps 0

Arrieta vs. Liriano
First game with full rosters and the Wahoos act like it's the first game of spring training. An error and three hits lead to a two-run inning for the Zaps. Arrieta continues to struggle as he gave up three in the third thanks in part to his own error. Wahoos clawed back in the game in the eighth vs. Ziegler. Machado contributed to the festivities with a 2-base throwing error that led to a pair of runs. Down 6-5 entering the ninth the Wahoos got to Giles. Pham pinch hit with a leadoff triple. Mahtook singled him. Turner rolled into two. Then Seager went deep. Wahoos eek out a 7-6 victory to improve to 1-8 this season vs. the Zaps.

Estrada vs. Greinke
Turner connected for a solo shot (1-5 HR/Fly) with two outs in the third. Goldy tied it with a homer in the top of the fourth (on a 1-2 roll). With the Zaps up 3-1 in the bottom of the eighth pinch hitter Tommy Pham led off with a homer. In the ninth with two on and two outs last gasp hitter Curt Casali rolled one to Machado. Boot. Tying run scores and it's now second and third with two outs. To the 10th we go...Casali comes up with a man on in the 11th. Grounder to Manny at third. Another boot. Now it's first and third with one out. Giles retires the next 2 batters. To the 12th...more zeroes. Bottom of the 13th with the bases empty and two outs. Casali hits a clean shot at 2-5. Wahoos win, 4-3.
