Blazers continue chapter 4 road trip at Ravenswood.
Game 1: Kershaw @ Scherzer
Bottom 1, Beltre goes yard off of Kershaw and bottom 2, McCann does the same. Kershaw gave up 15 HR last year in BDBL. The solo shot to McCann was the 16th given up this year in half the innings.
Top 5, Castro goes yard to pull the Blazers within a run 2-1.
But Scherzer (8 IP, 4 H, 2 BB 10 K) is just too much in a Ravenswood 2-1 win.
WP Scherzer 12-5
LP Kershaw 13-4
S Morrow (1)
Game 2: Iwakuma @ Odorizzi
Top 3, All Stars Carpenter with a RBI double, Betts with a RBI single and Choo with a RBI double give New Milford a 3-0 lead.
Top 9, Blazers up 4-0 and McCann rips a RBI single, Carpenter with a RBI single and Choo with a RBI groundout are more than enough for Iwakuma (7 IP, 2 H, 1 BB, 5 K) and the Blazers to even the series 7-0.
WP Iwakuma (9-4)
LP Odorizzi (5-7)
Game 3: Anderson @ Garcia
A Betts solo shot and Choo 2 RBI double give the Blazers a quick 3-0 first inning lead.
A McCann RBI double in the 4th push the Blazer lead to 4-0 .
Meanwhile Anderson is rolling.
Then, bottom 5, this really happened:
Casali IF single
VanSlyke IF single
Ruff groundout. Yes, the Infidels almost batted around without recording an out. Fucking stupid. 6-4 Infidels.
Bottom 6, Beltre with a RBI double (Skiz was telling me how much he has sucked before the game)
WP Rodrigues (7-2)
LP Anderson (8-5)
S Soria (5)
Game 4: Quintana @ Chen
I always think of Bruce Chen, for some reason
Top 3, Raburn RBI double gives New Milford a 1-0 lead which is matched in the bottom half by a Semien RBI single.
Top 4, McCann with a 2 run bomb is matched by a Valencia RBI groundout in the 4th and Semien RBI single in the 5th.
Top 6, McCann’s second HR of the game gives NM a 4-3 lead.
Top 7, Peralta with a 2 run bomb makes it 7-3 Blazers.
Blazers split the series with a 7-3 win.
WP Quintana (9-3)
LP Chen (6-8)
Blazers are at 3-5 on the chapter.
