Arrogant Bastards 2, Shooting Stars II 1
Here is a quick recap of last night's (Wednesday, March 13) series in which the AB's took 2 of 3 from the Champs. Neither team rolled very well. I scored in 3 innings and won 2 games.
Game 1 - A gem pitched by Cole Hamels and 3 2nd inning runs stand up
for a 3-1 AB win.
Game 2 - In a classic realtime 2012 Cliff Lee performance the Champs get an 21-8 single w/ two outs and a runner on 3rd in the 2nd and a solo homer to win 2-1. AB's manage 2 hits. And had a chance to steal home in the 9th to tie and did not (I had my reasons for not doing it - Mike Mann knows the real reason - I did not want to go into extra innings).
Game 3 - 3 walks, and Ichiro single, 2 more outs, a LaRoche walk, a pulled Volquez followed by a Neil Walker grand slam all in the 2nd inning was enough for Wandy, Motte and Hanrahan to overcome 2 solo homers by the Champs for a 6-2 victory and series victory. Mike Trout was in beast mode leading off in this game he has found a home as the leadoff hitter v. righties FACT.
AB's travel to Oberlin Monday (March 18) to play The Plague.
