Warpigs and Inmates Trade

The Pigs and Inmates pulled the trigger on a fairly big deal today. The Warpigs are sending Ender Inciarte, Archie Bradley, and both their 1st and 2nd round draft picks to Waco for Aaron Judge and a reserve pick.

DVs 4, Warpigs 3

Games played via TeamViewer.

First 4 games at The BallPork

Game 1 - Warpigs win 5-1. Adam Wainwright (10-15) made the most of his last 6.2 innings to become the first (and only) Pig pitcher to reach 10 wins. Jake Lamb had a triple and a homer, and drove in 3.

Game 2 - Warpigs win 4-1. Kendall Graveman (4-15) went 7 innings for the win. Raisel Iglesias earned his 21st save.

Game 3 - DVs win 11-1. Anthony DeSclafani (9-6) pitched well for 5 innings, but hit the floor trailing 2-1. The Pigpen then imploded, thanks mostly to 2 more errors by Starlin Castro. 7 of the 11 DV runs were unearned. Brandon Moss went 4-5 with 2 doubles and a homer. He drove in 3. Bartolo Colon went 5 innings for the win. He and a couple of relievers held the Pigs to 3 hits.

Game 4 - Warpigs win 7-4. J.T. Realmuto had a triple and a homer, and Carlos Rodon (6-11) somehow managed to not get killed in 5 innings work. The highlight of the game came late. After the DVs had crawled within 6-4, Francisco Liriano was called on to pinch hit, and smacked a long solo HR into Mr. Douglas's corn field. It was Liriano's 2nd homer of the year, and the 5th by Warpig pitchers this year. Iglesias earned save 22.

Last 3 games at DV Park by Viagra

Game 5 - DVs win 11-5. Archie Bradley (innings 1-2) and Michael Wacha (innings 3-4) combined to allow 11 runs (all earned) on 12 hits, 6 walks, and 3 homers in just 4 innings. After that it was just a matter of making sure everybody got to play. The Warpigs also hit 3 homers.

Game 6 - DVs win 6-4. Corey Seager homered twice and the DV pen held off a Warpig rally.

Game 7 - DVs win 5-3. A desperate attempt by the Warpigs to avoid 100 losses collapsed in vain. Reliever Raisel Iglesias entered the game with 2 outs in the 1st inning and pitched valiantly for 6.2 innings, keeping the game close. The DVs tied the game in the 7th on a Mike Moutakas homer; then scored 2 in the bottom of the 8th to wrap it up. Yasmany Tomas homered twice for the Pigs to wrest the team HR title away from Logan Forsythe. Unfortunately, he missed a 1-17 chance in the 9th that ended the game - and the season.

FFTs 2, Wahoos 1

FFTs win the first 2 games of the day. 
Leake baffles the Wahoos, 8-0. Then, after leading most of Game 2, they blew a 5-2 lead vs. the Wahoos with the tying run coming in the ninth. Then an HBP, walk and single and error ended it quickly and the FFTs won, 6-5.
The Wahoos used a pair of 2-run homers from Khris Davis and ran off from the FFts in the finale, 5-1.

Rhinos 5, Killer Bees 0

All games played by CM at the Rhino Preserve

Rhinos 1 – Bees 0
Nate Jones got credit for the win at The Rhino Reserve as the Rhinos shutout the Bees 1 to 0. The game's lone run was scored in the bottom of the 7th inning with runners on 3rd and 2nd with one out Wil Myers misses a 1-15 ballpark HR chance resulting in a Sac Fly.
Rhinos 7 - Bees 4
The Rhinos set the tone of the game in the first inning when they scored 2 runs on 2 hits.  The crucial at-bat was provided by Votto who made the crowd come alive when he popped a two-run HR over the fence. The Rhinos had 11 hits for the game and the Bees had 7. 
Rhinos 7 – Bees 2
Reynaldo Lopez tossed a complete game as the Rhinos outscored the Bees 7 to 2. Votto and Duvall homer for the Rhinos accounting for 5 runs against the Bees.
Rhinos 4 - Bees 2
The Rhinos and the Bees each hit two HR’s only problem was that the Bees HR’s were solo shots while the Rhinos were 2 run shots. Math adds up to favor the Rhinos.
Rhinos 6 – Bees 5
The score was knotted at 5 after nine innings.  The Rhinos won it in the bottom of the 10th inning as Willson Contreras lead off the bottom of the 10th with a doubled, Orlando Arcia followed with a sacrifice bunt and D.J. Lemahieu then laced a base-hit making the Rhinos victorious.

Inmates 7, Goofs 3

Via TeamViewer: Inmates 7 – Goofs 3

Holy Double-fucking-play, Batman! The two teams combined to hit into 28 (18 by the Inmates)!

Inmates 1 – Goofs 0 (Magical Kingdom): A pitchers’ duel with Quintana prevailing over Wright. The only run of the game scored off of a Jones sac fly in the 2nd. The Goofs managed only two hits.

Goofs 6 – Inmates 5 (Magical Kingdom): Given a 2-0 lead in the 7th, Brad Hand proceeded to hand (get it? Hand job!...) the game to the Goofsters as the Magical Ones scored six in the inning for the win. Kang hit the first of what would be many homers on the day. The Inmates left the winning run on in the 9th.

Goofs 1 – LDMF 0 (Baptist Bowl): Another pitching duel. Jankowski’s triple in the 8th plated Escobar for the only run of the game. Roark got the CG victory.

Inmates 10 – Goofs 9 (14 innings – Baptist Bowl): A see-saw game for the ages. The Goofs jumped out to a 5-2 lead in the 5th when both Escobar and Kang hit two-run taters (his second homer of the game). The Inmates came storming back in the bottom of the 9th to tie the game at 5, sending things into extra-innings. The bullpens held things in check until Kang led off the 12th with his third homer of the game to give the Goofs a 6-5 lead. That lasted for one pitch in the bottom of the inning as Altuve led off with a solo crank to tie things again. In the 13th, the Goofs again took the lead on a pair of singles and a Jankowski sac fly. Once again, the Inmates came back in the bottom of the inning when Valbuena hit a solo blast with one out to tie the score 7-7. Not to be outdone, Ruiz hit a solo shot in the top of the 14th, and Ramos walked Escobar with the bases loaded to add another run. Score: Goofs 9 – Inmates 7. In the bottom of the inning Altuve led off with a single and Segura followed with a two-run tater to tie the score. One out later Rizzo homered to end the game and put everyone out of their misery.

Inmates 9 – Goofs 0 (Magical Kingdom): An eight-run 7th blew the game open for the Inmates, as the Goofs managed only three hits. Nothing else exciting.

Goofs 5 – Inmates 4 (10 innings – Magical Kingdom): Tanaka went the distance despite giving up four runs in the Inmate 2nd, while the Inmates couldn’t muster any more offense. Brandon Phillips hit a walk-off single in the 10th to end the game.

Inmates 3 – Goofs 2 (Magical Kingdom): A close well-played game. The Goofs put a runner on in the 9th but couldn’t score. Quintana got the win; Degrom the loss.

Inmates 6 – Goofs 4 (Baptist Bowl): The Inmates jumped out to a 5-0 lead and then held on the rest of the way. Tanaka pitched another CG, this time in a losing effort. Segura had three hits, including a homer, for the Inmates.

Inmates 7 – Goofs 3 (Baptist Bowl): A four-run 1st put the Beakless Chicken Gang on top for good as the good guys coasted for the victory. Cargo tatered while Quintana picked up his third win of the series.

Inmates 4 – Goofs 3 (Baptist Bowl): A two-run home by Valbuena in the Inmate 7th proved to be the game-winner. Wright took the loss; Madson got credit for a long save.
