Games 1,2,3,7,8 @ The RastaDome
Games 4,5,6,9,10 @ The BallPork
Game 1 - Mavs win 12-10 in 11 innings. Jackie Bradley, Jr. blasted a bottom of the 9th, 2-out, grand slam to tie the game. Bryce Harper homered in the 11th to end it. Bradley went 3-4, and Harper was 3-5. J.T. Realmuto homered twice for the Warpigs. J.T. has hit 4 homers on the year, and they happened in 2 games.
Game 2 - Warpigs win 7-4. Carlos Rodon (4-4) went 8.2 innings for the win despite allowing 3 homers - 2 to Danny Valencia. Raisel Iglesias recorded the final out for his 9th save. Logan Forsythe was 3-3 with 3 RBI. Jake Lamb and Starlin Castro homered for the Pigs.
Game 3 - Mavs win 5-3. Jeremy Hellickson got the complete game victory. Harper homered twice for the Mavs.
Game 4 - Warpigs win 4-2. Realmuto and Logan Forsythe both had 3 hits, and Adam Wainwright (6-10) got the win. Iglesias saved his 10th game.
Game 5 - Mavs win 4-2. Jason Hammel and 3 relievers held the Warpigs to 4 hits.
Game 6 - Mavs win 4-3. Tommy Joseph hit two 2-run homers - one in the 1st and another in the 3rd - and that was all the Mavs would get - or need. Hellickson got the win. Chris Carter homered for the Pigs.
Game 7 - Mavs win 14-9. The two teams celebrated returning to the RastaDome by combining for 10 home runs. I don't know who hit all the dingers for the Mavs, but Carter and Yasmany Tomas each hit 2 for the Warpigs. Tomas considered stopping at 3rd on this last homer, as the triple would have given him the cycle, but was convinced to complete the trip around the bases.
Game 8 - Mavs win 6-4. This game was calmer, but there were still 4 homers - 2 from each team.
Game 9 - Mavs win 13-4. In the final two games, the Mavs could do no wrong and the Pigs could no right. The Mavs scored 6 first inning runs and had 17 hits in the pitcher-friendly park. Hammel went 6 for the win.
Game 10 - Mavs win 11-3. Another 4 runs in the 1st inning for the Mavs, who have discovered how to hit left-handed pitching thanks to 8 games vs Carlos Rodon and Daniel Norris in this series. The Mavs had 12 hits and 13(!) walks.
