Cards and dice at the Pigsty. The Wahoos vault back into 1st place in the BUD.
The first 5 games were played at SGP's Reservation. Who the hell schedules a 5-game series? Reminds me of college baseball with a game Friday night, a triple header on Saturday, and a game Sunday morning before getting on the bus to head back home.
April 16 - Wahoos win 5-4. The Wahoos, thanks mainly to the fact that Joe Ross sucks, scored 5 runs in the 1st inning before bagging up their bats. The Warpigs also only scored in one inning, with a 4-run 6th. Logan Forsythe missed a 1-12 grand slam on Tyler Thornburg's card that would have given the Pigs the lead. This was as close as the Pigs would get to a win until after the bus ride back home.
April 17 - Wahoos win 9-4. Jake Lamb had a double, a homer, and 2 walks. If I'm not mistaken, the next best Pig went 0-4 with 3 Ks. This could have been worse... the Wahoos hit into 6 double plays.
April 18 - Wahoos win 16-1. The Weekend at Bernies guy who was propped up on the mound struck out 18. The Hoos had 19 hits, 7 walks, and 1 hit batter. Pig pitchers will suffer fines in the Kangaroo Court for only hitting one batter. Oh, and we made 4 errors. No really, this is fun.
April 19 - Wahoos win 9-1. Such fun.
April 20 - Wahoos win 8-1. Such fucking fun.
The last two games took place in Hooterville at The BallPork. Thank God.
May 30 - Warpigs win 6-5. With the game tied 5-5, Hunter Pence hit a walkoff solo homer with 2 outs in the 9th inning. It was Pence's 2nd homer of the game. Pigs win! Pigs win!
May 31 - Wahoos win 5-2. The Warpigs had only 4 hits - all doubles. Some guy named Mike Foltynewicz pitched like Jake Arrieta, but it helps when the opposing team makes 25 of their 27 outs in the 5-column.
