The Buckeyes' day at the golf course was cut short by rain, so they made the short drive over to the PigSty to roll our final 5 games.
Game 1 @ The Buckeye Bandbox - Buckeyes 5, Warpigs 2. Joe Ross, who still sucks, gave up 2 more 1st inning runs, setting the stage for the Buckeye win. J.A. Happ went 6 innings for the win. The Buckeyes had 11 hits, 2 of which left the yard. Logan Forsythe homered for the Pigs.
Game 2 @ The Buckeye/Trump Tower - Warpigs 4, Buckeyes 3. Starlin Castro hit a 3-run homer in the 5th inning, and the Pig pitchers held on for the win. The Buckeyes scored 2 in the 9th and had the tying run on 2nd when Raisel Iglesias recorded the final out. Forsythe stayed hot for the Pigs with 3 hits. Garrett Richards went 7.2 innings for the win, allowing only 2 hits.
Game 3 @ The Buckeye Horseshoe - Buckeyes 7, Warpigs 6. The score was 6-6 after only 2 innings, then the pitching took over. The only other run scored - the winning run - was a Justin Bour homer in the 7th. Or was it Carlos Santana? Trumbo? I don't remember, but ONE of those bashers went yard off of Michael Wacha. J.T. Realmuto had 4 hits for the Warpigs, and Chris Carter homered.
Game 4 @ The BallPork - Warpigs 4, Buckeyes 2. Jake Lamb had a homer and an RBI double to pace the Pigs. Kendall Graveman (3-12) shut down the powerful Buckeyes, holding them to 4 hits over 7 innings and just 1 earned run. Raisel Iglesias got the last 5 outs for the save.
Game 5 @ The BallPork - Warpigs 3, Buckeyes 1. Mallex Smith hit his 1st homer of the year, a 2-run shot in the 2nd inning. Adam Wainwright and 3 relievers held the Buckeyes to 5 hits. Iglesias got the save. Ender Inciarte had 4 hits.
