Wahoos 5, Killer Bees 0

In desperation mode after struggling vs. the Buckeyes and Bees earlier in the week, the Wahoos faced the Bees via CM this morning. Here's what happened:

5/15 - Estrada vs. Chatwood turns into a slugfest as the use a 5-run eighth to top the Bees, 11-9. The big blow was a 3-run homer from Encarnacion. Freddie Freeman hit two homers and Dee Gordon had three hits including a triple. The Bees hit 6 homers.

5/16 - Folty vs. Sonny Gray -- Wahoos fall behind (again) early, this time 2-0. Khris Davis turned things around with a pair of home runs and Foltynewic went 7.2 and struck out eight to help slow the Bees. Dee Gordon had three more hits.

7/23 - Fernandez vs. Eickhoff seemed like a great day for dead man walking, as he entered the sixth inning with 11 strikeouts. Then trouble was capped off by a bases-loaded x-chance to Khris Davis. Double and an error and everybody scored. A 6-run inning and a 7-4 lead. The Wahoos scraped their way back into the game and Edwin Encarnacion capped the comeback with a walk-off 3-run bomb of Fernando Rodney. Wahoos win 9-7.

7/24 Arrieta vs. Sabathia -- Showing the game isn't always realistic, Dee Gordon singled and was caught stealing to lead off the game vs. Arrieta. May be the first runner ever caught vs. him. After Arrieta and the bullpen give up 3 in the ninth to give the Bees a 6-3, Liam Hendricks was tasked with holding on to the win. He didn't as the first five Wahoos up scored in the bottom of the inning capped by a 3-run walk-off homer by Marcell Ozuna off Tony Cingrani. Wahoos win, 8-6.

7/25 Estrada vs. Chatwood -- No late-inning heroics needed this time. The Wahoos scored 3 in the third and four relievers helped nail down the five-game sweep. Maikel Franco had three hits and homer for the Bees. Kyle Seager had two hits, two RBI and a homer for the Wahoos.
