Giants @ Blazers
Game 1: Hudson @ Kershaw
Blazers score 4 in the first highlighted by a Tulo 3 run bomb and 4 more in the second on a Betts RBI single, Choo 2 RBI single and Tulo RBI single to take a commanding 8-1 lead.
A Choo 4th inning HR put the Blazers up 9-1 and another 4 spot in the 7th on a WP, Carpenter 2 RBI single and Choo RBI single put the game away. New York scores some meaningless 9th inning runs and Blazers win 13-7.
WP Kershaw (4-2) (6 IP, 2 ER, 9 K)
LP Hudson (0-1)
Game 2: Lohse @ Anderson
A third inning Brett Anderson RBI double followed by a Betts sac fly put New Milford up 2-0. New York cut the lead to 2-1 on a Seager GIDP scoring a run.
Bottom 4, Daniel Nava, who was just called up from AAA, laced an RBI single to put New Milford up 3-1.
Bottom 5, Carpenter hit his first HR of the year, a 2 run shot, to put New Milford up 5-1. And that’s all Brett Anderson ( 9 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K) would need as Blazers win 5-1.
WP Anderson (3-2)
LP Lohse (0-1)
Game 3: Simon @ Tanaka
A second inning Nava bases loaded triple and McCann RBI groundout stake New Milford to a 4-0 lead,
Carpenter’s second HR of the year put the Blazers up 5-0.
McCann’s 7th inning HR made it 6-0 New Milford and Peralta hit a sac fly in the 8th for a 7-0 lead.
A 9th inning Seager RBI single and Burns 2 RBI single go for naught, as Blazers in 7-3.
WP Tanaka (3-0)
LP Simon (0-1)
Game 4: Sabathia @ Quintana
A Tulo first inning RBI groundout gave New Milford the early 1-0 lead.
Bottom 3, a Tulo 2 out, 2 run HR is followed by a Lowrie walk and Choo 2 out 2 run HR. 5-0 Blazers.
Hechavarria launced a solo shot to put New York on the board in the 5th.
Two 8th inning RBI groundouts put the Blazers up 7-1, a score they win by completing the sweep.
WP Quintana (2-0)
LP Sabathia (1-2)
The Blazers finish chapter one at 20-8 and in first place in the McGowan Division.
